Rocky Mountain Recreation at its Best

If you’re planning a private event or retreat at the Home Ranch, you’ll find the wild and scenic Elk River, the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest, and the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness right at your doorstep. The Home Ranch makes an ideal home base for all kinds of healthy outdoor activities and adventure options – in every season of the year, from some of the finest freestone fly fishing in the West, to some of the best horses, wranglers, and horseback riding amenities in the American Wes. A Home Ranch retreat offers a wide variety of all-inclusive on-ranch and off-ranch adventures and activities to suit any age, taste or desire. We also help arrange off-ranch excursions with some of the best adventure travel outfitters in the Steamboat Springs, Colorado area.

Fly Fishing Colorado-Style

The Home Ranch is an Orvis-endorsed fly fishing lodge with about three miles of the Elk River flowing through the property. The Elk River is a classic rocky mountain freestone river that supports abundant populations of wild rainbow, brown, brook, and cutthroat trout. While the average trout is ten to sixteen inches in length, several rainbows are caught each year that reach twenty inches in length.
