Situated at the south end of the Grand Mesa National Forest, the GR Bar Ranch offers week-long and weekend vacations that people dream about but seldom experience.  When you arrive, driving up the windy gravel ranch road, you will think you might possible have entered into a dreamy part of paradise. Picturesque mountain vistas, wildflower meadows, tall aspen groves that shelters meandering streams, makes this a precious lifetime experience.


You will have countless outdoor experiences, including leisure hiking, mountain biking, boating, private lake trout fishing, and horseback riding. Since we are a working cattle ranch, you might experience a cattle drive, round up, and cowboys at work. And when the day is done and night comes you can retire to the peace and solitude of your own secluded rustic cabin located in the aspens far from view of other cabins.


The GR Bar Ranch experience inspires our guests to return year after year. They consider the ranch to be their own private mountain retreat without the cost of ownership. As a result, we book up early in the season, so make sure to reserve your week in paradise, soon.



Saturday Noon - Friday Noon (7days and 6 nights!). Relax and rejuvenate in one of our unique rustic cabins at the GR Bar Ranch. Cabin reservations can be booked at any time depending on availability. Vacations run during summer months from mid-May through mid-September.



Short on time? Our NEW weekend vacation might be perfect for you! Even though this plan offers fewer days, you still have access to the entire ranch for fun and relaxation. Cabin reservations can be made at any time depending on availability mid-May through mid-September.


Due to strong demand, we suggest you place your reservation early. We offer a 10% discount for those that place their reservation 120 days prior to their stay and a 5% discount 90 days prior.
