THE RANCH

Located at 8500 feet in the majestic Rocky Mountains, the Colorado Mountain Ranch sits just above Boulder in the historic mining town of Gold Hill. The Ranch offers stunning views of the Continental Divide by day and the twinkling lights of Denver by night. With grounds covering 160 acres of wildflower meadows, aspen groves, and pine forests, this is the perfect setting for meaningful camp, wedding and event experiences. 

The Setting

The Ranch is a songbird sanctuary featuring an outdoor amphitheater, hiking and riding trails, a campfire ring, and dedicated venues for activities including gymnastics, mountainboarding, and disc golf.
 

The Lodge

 

At the heart of the Ranch sits our rustic turn-of-the century log lodge, which charms with the hospitality of the old West. The log Lodge was originally built in 1925 by Mary Malloy and Molly McClay as the hub of their M&M Riding Ranch.  Today the Lodge continues as the traditional heart and soul of the Colorado Mountain Ranch for meals and group gatherings, large and small.

The Cabins

During the Summer, the cabins are home to our Summer Camp Staff. From mid-August through September, the cabins become home for a night or more to students and other groups for CMR's Fall Retreat Season.

Arapahoe

At the edge of the trees closest to the Camp action, the Arapahoe Cabin was built in the early 1950s by Coach Walker.  Its two rooms are home for male staff all summer and boys on the Thursday Camp Overnights.

Blue Spruce

Nestled into the trees on the hill north of the Lodge, the Blue Spruce Cabin was built in the early 1950s by Coach Walker.  Its two rooms are home for male staff all summer and boys on the Thursday Camp Overnights.

Columbine

The Columbine was built in the early 1950s by Coach Walker, set just beyond the Lodge overlooking Boulder Valley with views of the snow-capped peaks. Its three rooms are home for female staff all summer and girls on the Thursday Camp Overnights.

Ponderosa

The Ponderosa was built in the mid-1920s as the bunkhouse for guests at the M&M Ranch.  Its seven rooms are home for female staff all summer and girls on the Thursday Camp Overnights.

The Barn & Corral

The current Barn was built in the spring following the 2010 September Forest Fire which left the previous barn in ashes.  Today it houses our replenished supply of saddles and other tack, as well as Mike’s tools and workshop. Our Barn area and Corrals, home to gentle Western riding horses and small farm animals, are a delight for animal lovers of all ages.
