In the traditions of sold-out Whiskey and Water and Autumn Harvest Weekend events, we're combining two of our favorite pursuits into one expertly paired weekend of adventure. The Ranch will welcome experts in viticulture and zoology to our wild expanse to learn the hidden secrets of the ecosystem that allow flora and fauna to thrive.

So very nice to have your itinerary arranged before you arrive and staff was very flexible & helpful to make changes during our stay. So many FUN activities - skiing, snowmobiles, cross country skiing, UTV / sledding, shooting sports...or relax by lodge fires & visit with other guests, bowling, movie theatre! Ranch itself is gorgeous as are the views. This is a vacation for the record books - We will be back!

I’ve been to the ranch before - but during Sept and Oct. I was afraid about February, but it was dreamy! The property was gorgeous covered in snow, the Granite Lodge was extra cozy and of course the dining was outstanding. If you go - notice every detail. It’s incredibly well done! We only wish we had more time to do more of the activities. As it was, the Spa and hot tub were just what we needed to relax after skiing, snowshoeing, shooting and snowmobiling.
