The Best Ranch Vacation Ever

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 all we have to offer, every season, with one small group or family at a time (three-nine people)

In addition to warm western hospitality and homemade meals, you will receive a highly personalized experience learning about and enjoying various aspects of horsemanship and the ranching life first-hand when you book an all-inclusive stay with us. Except for activities related to ranch operations, you and your small group will have the entire place to yourselves staying in the three-bedroom/two-bath ranch house, the only dwelling on the whole ranch.

“The Full Ranch Experience”

“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.”

Discover How a Vacation at Music Meadows will create memories for a lifetime!

Music Meadows Ranch is unique, because there is no other spot like it in the world. We are pros at what we do! Nestled in the Wet Mountain Valley below Crestone Peak and Grape Creek flowing through the yard, it is a working cattle ranch where a fortunate few are invited to come each year. Join us.

“Like Being with Family…”

“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.”
