Runnin’ the Race Ranch Retreat is housed on a 125-year-old homestead of a third-generation farm. Boasting a scenic seventeen and a half acres of pasture, stunning views of the Rocky Mountains, wide coulees, and rolling foothills, this place will make your stay one to remember. This beautiful setting is the ideal place to get away from the constant sights, sounds, and noise of the city and retreat into the wind blowing through the spruce and poplar trees, the soothing hoots of the resident owl, and the thundering hooves of a playful and friendly herd of horses. Here, you can enjoy time alone or with family, book an equine experience or treat yourself to one of the many spa treatments. You can walk through the 1600-square-foot garden growing abundant with ripe carrots, zucchini, peas, rhubarb, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and asparagus! Raspberry bushes and strawberry plants wind through the garden adding to the rainbow of colors to delight your senses. Crabapple and pear trees provide the makings for homemade applesauce, apple cider, pear chips, and apple pie. On any given day, you might find Amanda in the kitchen cooking up a batch of fresh apple rhubarb crisp or cutting up the fixings for zucchini, potato, and onion soup. Grapes grow along the side of The Bunkhouse for easy picking. Walk back into your childhood dream of being a cowboy or cowgirl on a ranch. Watch from a distance or get your hands dirty haltering and feeding the horses. Something inside everyone wants to reconnect with those childhood dreams!
