Named for the rugged and majestic snow-capped mountains that rise above it and the untouched wilderness that surrounds it, Northern Colorado’s Historic Rawah Ranch is a guest ranch located in one of the most scenic and unspoiled valleys in North America. Experience spectacular fly fishing on endless private waters. Empower your inner cowboy on backcountry horseback rides, cookouts under the stars, sing-alongs and square dancing. Hike through high alpine meadows or just relax on the porch.
Unique Features: To the mountain tribe of Ute Indians, Rawah was the word for “abundance.” Resting at 8,400 feet just south of the Colorado-Wyoming border, Rawah Ranch occupies a beautiful spot in the still practically undiscovered Laramie River Valley.
Accommodations: With nine beautiful mountain cabins on site, you’ll never feel crowded. Each cabin is unique in character and has its own personality. The cabins are situated so that you’re near everything: the lodge, the stables and of course the Big Laramie River, but still have privacy. Each western-style cabin is well appointed with wonderful linens and tasteful decor. Each is outfitted with its own private bath, wood stove and serviced daily.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the Cowboys Cabin which is a spacious, high-ceilinged master suite cabin accompanied by a private bath, cozy sitting area and your own wood stove. Guests will enjoy being tucked among the aspens along the banks of the Big Laramie River where moose come to visit most mornings.
Dining: Rawah aims to connect amazing natural surroundings to a dining experience in the same way ingredients are connected to food. They believe in a seamless bond between these elements and the experience they share with guests. Following a field-to-fork passion for preparation, they prefer to stay as organic, natural and locally grown as possible.
Activities: At Rawah Ranch, you choose how to fill your hours. Maybe you’ll get up early to welcome the hush of a new day on the porch of your cabin and watch the light fill the high mountain valley. Maybe you’d like to hike through the aspen groves, exploring with your family. Or saddle up some horses and spend the day riding through untouched and unspoiled mountain woods and fields.
Spa & Fitness: What could be better than treating yourself to a relaxing massage after a long day in the saddle? Rawah Ranch offers an ideal single reflexology sessions by the hour as a spa add-on to your getaway.
Location: Situated at the base on the Rawah Wilderness Area and Roosevelt National Forest about twenty miles south of the Colorado and Wyoming border, Rawah Wilderness Ranch is easily accessible from Denver to the south, Fort Collins to the east, Steamboat Springs to the west, and Laramie and Cheyenne to the north.
Closest Airport: Denver, Colorado is 142 miles or Laramie Regional Airport, Wyoming is 41 miles.
Children’s Programs: The Activities Coordinators host program activities each morning during your stay, keeping the youngest guests busy with authentic cowboy pastimes while giving adults the chance to escape on other adventures. The Rawah Ranch Children’s Program is for youth ages 4-10, but they’ve had children of all ages at the ranch participate! The Children’s Program is offered daily between breakfast and lunch mealtimes.
Pet Friendly: No, unfortunately pets are not allowed. Rawah Ranch is friendly to certified service animals only who need to accompany their owners on vacation. Please let them know in advance if you plan to bring your service animal with you during your stay.
Weddings: No. They don’t normally host weddings, although they may by special request.
Meetings: Bring your company to Rawah Ranch to find inspiration, build relationships and practice teamwork in a fresh setting. You’ll be amazed by how much your business can grow with a healthy dose of fresh air.
Extra Info: The railroad companies set the ranch legacy in motion when President Theodore Roosevelt signed the deed of trust for the land Rawah Ranch occupies as part of a land acquisition. Soon after, the valley was added to what would eventually become the Roosevelt National Forest. With the passage of the Wilderness Act in 1964 the Rawah Wilderness Area was preserved indefinitely.
