ECO-MMODATION

Chico basin ranch

The Chico Basin Ranch, located 45 minutes southeast of Colorado Springs, encompasses nearly 90,000 acres of pristine shortgrass prairie, lakes & an abundance of wildlife. Family owned, the intimate atmosphere here allows our families to fully immerse themselves in ranch life.

SUSTAINABLE CREDENTIALS

  • They use cattle as a tool to disturb the surface of the land to achieve conservation goals by recycling nutrients and improving the water cycle
  • They work closely with conservation organisations such as the Nature Conservancy, Colorado Parks and Wildlife to take advantage of science-based management methods
  • They have the knowledge of animal behaviours, stocking rates, densities and grazing patterns to understand the natural processes to ensure successfully rehabilitation 
  • Their main goals consist of managing strictly for wildlife habitat to seeking a specific biologic goal such as providing habitat for an endangered species, controlling erosion.

With only a handful of guests at a time – rarely more than six—families are able to learn by becoming actively involved in the day’s work.  Head out at sun-rise on horseback as you move pasture herds before spending the afternoon contributing to the running of a working ranch.

The accommodation is  a newly renovated, historic building dating to early 20th century  Each room has a very American charm and is complete with bathroom, full kitchen and sitting room.  

With fresh ingredients readily available, the ranch will pack a scrumptious picnic for you to take with you on your adventure, and after a long day of ranching, you’ll come home to a freshly prepared home-style dinner.

 

BWW LOVES IT BECAUSE…

Authentic Ranching doesn’t come much better than this.  Actively learning about the wildlife, landscapes and the importance of the weather system gives our families knowledge about every aspect Ranch life.
