New destination for a reunion: a dude ranch

Family reunion groups are discovering that a dude ranch is the perfect host for their unique gatherings. Consider the advantages: a dude ranch is by its nature warmly welcoming and family-friendly, so you’ve set the right tone immediately.

Everything is taken care of, so no need to worry about catering and setting up activities. And you’ve got a getaway with a single price (no annoying add-ons), so every member of the group can plan ahead.

And the setting and scenery are always something family reunion memories are made of. “We’ve come to look forward to such groups for certain weeks in the season,” says Mike at the Lost Creek Ranch.  “Typically we offer incentives for large bookings and encourage very large groups to book the entire ranch.  This allows us to cater to their specific needs/wants.”

Set near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the ranch offers great rates in low season (May 31 – June 14 and August 30 – September 6).

A guest ranch is an ideal solution for such gatherings, with both indoor and outdoor options for your family meetings, whether it be in the great room in the ranch house or a conference room in the bunk-house. Look for a ranch that can accommodate groups.

More ranches to consider for family reunions: Angel Ridge Ranch, near Ridgeway and Ouray, in Colorado. And check the Lodge at Sun Ranch (formerly Papoose Creek) in Cameron, Montana.
