The Best Ranch Experience
Located in the heart of Colorful Colorado at an elevation of 8,000 feet, Music Meadows Ranch is an authentic working cattle ranch geared for sharing our lifestyle and educating our guests, every season, with only one small group or family at a time (three-six people). In addition to warm western hospitality and homemade meals, you will receive a highly curated experience learning about and enjoying various aspects of horsemanship and the ranching life first-hand. Except for activities related to ranch operations, you and your small group will have the entire place yourselves staying in the three-bedroom/two-bath ranch house, the only dwelling on the whole ranch!
“Music Meadows Ranch is an authentic, working cattle and horse ranch that could very well change your life. I met Elin in 1996 and can testify to the fact that she is the real thing; a real working cowgirl. She “ranches” for a living, a glorious, strenuous and demanding living. Music Meadows is not a dude ranch you visit, then go back to your life and forget. If you want to experience a lifestyle not often understood, then make every effort to get here. You will work honest and hard, acquire unexpected knowledge of yourself, and thank God for the experience.”

“Is a 5-star rating all I can give? It is so much more! Our family will never forget the week we spent at Music Meadows Ranch. The grandkids (5) still talk about working on the ranch. They learned many things from Elin and Rhoda that has been beneficial on our cattle farm since we were there. Sharing meals around the table was like being with family. There was something special for all the family to enjoy for ages 11, 16, 17, 18, 19, 41, 46, and two 74 years old.”
Nicole was in charge of our rides and she was amazing. The girls hadn’t ridden so they got instruction for three days on our fabulous rides! Priceless! By day three they were comfortable with their horses and in control of them. They learned to trot and some cantor. Dallas also rode with us and she was a big help and very nice. No head to tail at this ranch. We were encouraged to guide our own horse and spread out within reasonable distance of each other. By the time we left, the girls had so bonded with their horses that they cried to leave them. We had to say goodbye to them three times over the final twelve hours! I learned what “a girl and her horse” is all about. We’ll be back and back and back. Five stars plus!”
