Guest Ranch Dining

You’re in for a Real Treat When It’s Time to Eat

We guarantee you’ll enjoy every meal served during your stay. It’s one thing for us to tell you that our chef is one talented cook, but it takes more than words to prepare you for the dining experience at Colorado Trails Ranch. Everyone raves about the food. It is one part gourmet and one-part homemade goodness, always high quality, healthy and sensational.

We’re aware that meals at home are hurried events or eaten on the run. Every part of a vacation should be pure pleasure, and on our guest ranch, you could indulge yourself in scrumptious, yet wholesome food. Menus are fulfilling, diverse and satisfying to both adults and children alike. Even your picky eaters will be thrilled with the delicious meals that are part of our vacation packages.

All-Inclusive Meals

One of the things that keep our dude ranch guests coming back is the food. The only complaint is they can’t stop eating! All-inclusive weeks include 3 meals a day. Everyone comes to meals at the same time. Meals are served either buffet or family style with the exception of the adult candlelight dinner which is sit down served. A typical week includes 3 cookouts as well, weather permitting.

Flex Plan Meal Options

Beginning in August, when we move to our Flex Plan. Meal options will be different than our traditional all-inclusive plan.

For breakfast, guests will have the option of grab and go items in our trading post along with our new espresso bar. Items may include a daily hot item such as breakfast burritos, biscuit and egg sandwiches, quiche, along with a fresh baked pastry. There will be a selection of refrigerated items always available to include yogurt and cold beverages.

Lunch options will consist of grab and go items from our refrigerator and freezer case in the trading post. Our chef will be preparing a variety of quality, house made options on a rotating basis. We make sure to offer healthy options including fantastic salads using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible!

Evenings we will be offering meals in the traditional guest ranch style. Each week we will post a menu with a different theme each night. Guests may make a reservation with at least 24 hours advance notice. Please understand this is not a la carte restaurant dining. Menus will be similar to our all-inclusive options which include a Western Cookout, Italian night, Mexican and American options. We will be offering our guest favorite breakfast ride on Saturday as well.

For the DIY’ers you may opt to cookout yourselves on our community grill or have a small propane grill at your cabin.

If you don’t see what you are looking for, please ask. We are happy to try and come up with a plan to suit you!

Sample All-Inclusive Meals:

Special Dietary Needs
If any member of your party has food allergies or dietary restrictions, with advance notice, our dude ranch chef can prepare special menus for their meals. We ask for as much information as possible before you arrive, so don’t hesitate to contact us with the details. On your first evening here, you can meet with the chef to discuss the best options for the week ahead.
