RUSTIC MOUNTIAN RANCH GETAWAYS
The Quarter Circle HM Ranch is nestled along the magnificent Cimarron Ridge between Ouray and Ridgway. It sits five miles behind locked gates and a dozen or more miles from the nearest highway. That means you will find no crowds or hoards of tourists here. Accommodations are rustic but quite comfortable. Seclusion, panoramic scenery, abundant wildlife, and of course the ranch horses will be the highlights of your stay. Your next adventure awaits!
Looking for the road less traveled? You will find it here! Come and enjoy the quiet peaceful solitude this unique property has to offer.
Your overnight stay will be far away from the crowds, with views of the San Juans that can only be experienced from this unique location.
This adventure takes you from your cabin high in the aspens, by horseback to one of least traveled and unspoiled areas left in Colorado, you will find no crowds here.
Your trip will start at 10 am. Meet at our Ouray location an from there you will be transported to seclusion of our private mountian ranch. For those wanting to drive themselves a 4wd vehicle is required.
Upon arriving you will settle into the “bunkhouse” where right out your door your horse will be waiting to take you for a ride. Your horse will take into country, that is as it was a century ago. Abundant wildlife can be seen and photographed along your journey, along with vistas that reach to Utah.
You will return to a chuck wagon style dinner with your choice of grilled ribeye or chicken. Accompanied by a garden salad and baked potato and grilled veggies. If you are not a meat eater we can accommodate you too!
After dinner you can relax or go wet a line in the lake or just take a leisurely stroll on one of the mountain trails. UTV rides can be arranged for evening wildlife viewing.
Star gaising is a favorite pastime, there is nothing like the milky way on a clear night at 10,000 feet. Settling in you will notice how quite and peaceful it is.
Mornings are very bucolic, the cool fresh air, maybe a mule deer will wander by, the horses grazing in the meadow, the smell of coffee coming from the cook shack.
Breakfast is at 8. Bacon and eggs, flapjacks, fresh fruit, and for those heath conscience or with dietary restrictions we can accommodate you also. This will all be gone over with a pre-trip phone call or email.
Time permitting UTV tours are available in the morning, or you can just kickback and enjoy the quiet peacefulness.
10 am is departure time where you will be transported back into the real world. Price-$350 per person.
