Unforgettable Things to Do During a Multigenerational Family Mountain Vacation 

Unplug and Reconnect with Loved Ones

When you’re looking for a special place to gather for a multigenerational vacation without any disruptions, our small, off-the-grid guest ranch is the best choice. Family trips to a tranquil place like this are ideal for unplugging and reconnecting with one another. With millions of acres of pristine wilderness, the Gila National Forest is a stunning place for families to go to escape their busy lives and make lasting memories. The best part is that groups of 9 or more get the entire ranch to themselves and our undivided attention making your vacation even more customizable. 

Gather for a Home-style Meal  

It’s no secret that cooking while you’re on vacation can be a bit of a struggle, especially when there are many people to feed. Luckily, one of the best things about our all-inclusive multi-family vacation offerings is that you won’t have to cook a single meal! Instead of figuring out what to cook, pull out a deck of cards or a board game while our fantastic chef Fred makes you daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. At the ranch, every meal is made from scratch using only the best ingredients. From delicious French toast and tasty eggs benedict for breakfast to yummy sandwiches and tacos for lunch to BBQ ribs and rainbow trout for dinner, our family-style meals will make your mouth water. And don’t forget dessert! There’s always room for tiramisu, New York cheesecake, chocolate mousse, peach cobbler, and more!

Explore the Land on Horseback 

A retreat to Western New Mexico isn’t complete without unlimited horseback riding through the enchanting Gila National Forest. With 3.3 million acres of wilderness to explore, there’s plenty to keep everyone in your group entertained for days. Our well-trained and well-mannered horses are available for trail rides to all guests six and older. Our small size creates the ideal setting for a catered experience, effective group instruction, and fun family rides. Plus, groups of 10 or more receive up to a 15% discount!

Bonus: We also offer pony rides so children three to five years old can enjoy a short ride around the ranch!
