In 2020, many North American guest ranches saw a surge of bookings from families needing to come up with safe alternatives to their cancelled cruise and international vacation plans.

BILLINGS, MT – Challenging times call for creative solutions. Looking to expand its award-winning portfolio of naturally self-distancing, nature-based, small group vacations for adults and families, Austin Adventures only needed to look to its own backyard for the perfect solution – the Western guest ranch vacation.

In partnership with Best Ranches in the West, Austin Adventures has added 14 first- class guest ranches to their lineup of offerings. Founder and President Dan Austin and his Montana-based team drew from their personal knowledge and regional experience having hosted and operated adventures throughout the West for the past 40 years. With careful vetting and personal experience, they have bestowed their highest mark of approval on each property in this exclusive group of all-inclusive guest ranches situated in some of the most spectacular settings in the West.

In 2020, many North American guest ranches saw a surge of bookings from families needing to come up with safe alternatives to their cancelled cruise and international vacation plans. Austin recognized this trend early and in January began the steps to include ranch vacations in its 2021 line-up. It was, “a long overdue addition” in Austin’s words.

Knowing safety will be top priority to today’s traveler, Austin emphasizes the natural and healthy style of this type of vacation alternative that also embraces carefully planned and recently enacted COVID-19 mitigation protocols:

  • All are in wilderness-adjacent locations that are isolated and remote
  • Chef-prepared, fresh and locally sourced foods and wines of the region
  • Opportunities to indulge in a variety of outdoor recreational activities
  • The natural social-distancing that horseback riding provides
  • Adhering to the highest standards of housekeeping, service and maintenance
  • A rare feeling of exclusivity with VIP pampering, service and experiences
  • The ability to combine a ranch stay with a road-trip to avoid flying 

Austin Adventures’ Guest Ranch Collection for 2021 will include these highly coveted ranch properties across the West: 

  1. Tanque Verde Ranch - Tucson, AZ
  2. White Stallion Ranch - Tucson, AZ
  3. Tombstone Monument Ranch - Tombstone, AZ 
  4. Rancho de la Osa - Sasabe, AZ
  5. Kay El Bar Ranch - Wickenburg, AZ
  6. Latigo Guest Ranch - Kremmling, CO
  7. Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch - Loveland CO
  8. Western Pleasure Guest Ranch - Sandpoint, ID
  9. Running Y Ranch Resort - Klamath Falls, OR
  10. Zion Mountain Ranch - Zion National Park, UT
  11. Spring Creek Ranch - Jackson, WY
  12. Brush Creek Luxury Ranch Collection - Saratoga, WY
  13. The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch - Shell, WY
  14. Paradise Guest Ranch - Buffalo, WY 

“We look forward in the months ahead to welcoming to our portfolio other outstanding properties that meet our criteria,” Austin adds. The Guest Ranch Collection is expected to grow with the addition of one or two new offerings a year.
