August 18, 2013 is "The Great Grownup Getaway." Six "kid-free" days of Western fun and outdoor adventure - just for grownups, 21 years and up. Guests will experience a unique child-free Colorado vacation, that is crafted for grownups only.
Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch has designated the week of August 18, 2013 as "The Great Grownup Getaway." It's great because it's just for grownups -21 years and up!
The Grownup Getaway is six days of western activities: riding adventures in the arena and on the trail include your own horse for the week! Mount up for a breakfast ride on the ridge, or an overnight pack trip to Cow Camp and even a moonlight ride-if the moon is up!
Guests also have a wide variety of outdoor adventures to choose from: trap shooting to tennis, rock climbing to guided nature hikes, lounging at the pool to a rousing game of tennis or volleyball. Evenings are for kickin' back 'round the campfire to share laughter and stories with new-found friends...and to roast that perfect marshmallow!
Late summer in Colorado is ideal, with warm days and cooler nights-perfect riding and fishing weather. The crisp mountain air and brilliant sunshine serve to re-energize the mind, body and spirit.
BE A RANCH HAND
Some guests look forward to heading up to the barn before breakfast to help with morning chores. There are pastures to irrigate, fences to fix, and animals to feed, plus cattle to sort and move to pasture. Guests can even gather eggs that Sylvan Dale will prepare for their breakfast!
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO FISH
The Big Thompson River flows through the Ranch and is teaming with Rainbow trout. Fishing Guides are on hand to teach fly casting lessons and provide fly fishing excursions. Our stocked pond provides the opportunity to catch a trout for dinner!
Mornings start with "Cowhand Yoga" which is a great way to limber-up and stretch out to get the most out of the day!
Massages take place indoors or out (subject to weather), using all natural oils to soothe the skin and open pores...Citrus Blend, Peppermint and Eucalyptus are current favorites. A deep tissue, therapeutic massage relieves sore muscles and rejuvenates the body. Another option is the Relaxation Massage, offering a lighter touch to relax the overall body and mind. At the end of the days, guests can congregate with a glass of wine, or a soak in the hot tub.
"What my wife and I like about Sylvan Dale's Kid-Free week is that we can be with other adults, having adult conversations, etc. The whole week caters just to adults...for a change, it's nice not having to share my wife with the kids. Now that's a vacation!" (Michael Goldman, Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch Guest, 1/31/2013.)
"The Great Grownup Getaway" week takes place August 18-24, 2013 and includes all lodging, meals, daily activities and evening entertainment. The all inclusive 6-night package starts at $2,295 per person.
