Family Reunions

Instead of a family get-together at someone’s home, why not bring your group to The High Lonesome Ranch for a Family Reunion? Our Guest Ranch can accommodate 62 total guests in a variety of private homes, cabins, and our Castle Rock Camp (glamping – or luxury camping) tents. You’ll find enough appointments to make your visit feel like home, with coffee, sodas, bottled water, wine, and snacks in each of the houses, along with long sofas and oversized chairs. With a large enough group we can custom tailor activities and entrees alike.

As a Guest and Dude Ranch we specialize in offering a wide-enough variety of activities to suit everyone’s fancy. From horseback riding and cattle drives to trout and bass fishing with fly and conventional gear to hiking, mountain biking, yoga, sporting clays, wing shooting, and golf, we’ll keep you entertained for sure. If you’ve never done a particular activity before, don’t worry. Our instructors are patient and they’ll thoroughly show everyone the ropes.

At the end of the day enjoy a glass of wine around the fire pit. It’s a perfect way to share new memories and to relive older ones.

Group Getaways

The High Lonesome Ranch is a perfect venue for a group getaway. Our guest service team has created fabulous retreats for a wide variety of groups. Allow us to create a world-class experience for you and for your group.

Holiday Gatherings

The High Lonesome Ranch cabins and homes offer luxurious seclusion where you can spend the holidays in a relaxed and spirited environment with family and friends. Our cabins and homes feature fully equipped kitchens, spacious and comfortable living rooms, and guest suites with private bathrooms. Enjoy stellar views from your patio or connect to the outside world through wireless Internet or flat screen televisions. Unwind for a week at The High Lonesome Ranch. We’ll put you in a festive spirit, guaranteed!
