Accommodation

Facilities

  • Bar
  • Dining area

For 15 years, the ranchers have been hosting the guests at the ranch. Usually, no more than eight or 10 guests stay at the time. You will not be considered a tourist but a part of them and you will do a real-life experience. The dining room and the bar are on the low ground. Meanwhile, the rooms are on the first floor. The other buildings of the ranch are the old ranch house, where the staff lives, a little cottage, the barn, and a tack room.

The new old-west-styled saloon is composed of eight simple bedrooms, each with private bathroom. It accommodates up to 16 guests. This number is rarely reached. The whole building is completely made of wood-balanced and it has a very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, enriched by authentic western decorations.

Another thing that is worthwhile mentioning is the cabin, an isolated room, furnished with its own bathroom. This little house allows couple and new-married couple to live their old west honey-moon without being annoyed by anything. In the big saloon, the TV is replaced by the pool table, the football table, and bar.

Program

Sample itinerary

You will get breakfast in the morning, ride, or do working cows (depending on the day) as well as other ranch activities such as eventual rodeos or events (all activities change depending on the season). During the spring season, the calf is born and you have to check them regularly. At the end of May and June, Lake Ranch brands calves. In September - October, they round up and sell calves. They brake foals throughout the entire season.

The horses

Quarter Horses, Paints, and Mustangs are all kind of horses. Some of them are suitable for beginners, others have a lot of "cow sense" in order to work with the cattle and the rest of them are younger and demanding. Most of them are bred and broken at the ranch. The mares and stallions are Quarter Horses with strong and sturdy legs and hooves. The breeding's aim is to obtain strong, trustworthy, and well-balanced horses. Beauty, power and well-balanced, and trustworthiness, these are the horses. During this vacation, Lake Ranch will provide horses for the program.

Note: Minimum one week, exceptions can be made depending on availability.

After a week of holiday at the ranch, you will travel across the USA, in order to discover Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada in an adventurous and non-traditional way.

There can be some variations as mutually agreed between the guests. The overnights will be in high-quality hotels that are already included in the tour-price. The flight back to Italy leaves from Las Vegas. The tour can begin from Las Vegas and end up at the ranch, too.
