Is This Your Final Summer Fling?
As summer nears its end, you're probably wondering if it's too early for one last vacation hurrah, or too late for that trip you meant to take a couple of months ago. The answer to both perplexities is, of course, 'No'.
As you no doubt have heard, the demand for travel is at an all-time high as more and more destinations lift Covid restrictions, almost weekly, allowing more people to try and go on vacation. Some have called it 'revenge travel' - it's a release of pent-up frustrations caused by lockdowns, shutdowns and emotional near-breakdowns in our season of pandemia.
So what's a great getaway in this not-quite-last-minute? Have you considered that Yellowstone-(the TV show, not the park)inspired cattle drive that has been floating about in your vacation dreams?
Welcome to the true spirit of the West, where summer vacations get the Wild West treatment at the 44-room Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek Ranch, a 30,000-acre working cattle ranch in Saratoga, southwestern Wyoming. Dude ranch dreams come true during morning horseback-riding excursions and cattle drives, and there’s even a Lil’ Wranglers program for kids. Guests can turn up the adventure on one of the ranch’s 38 sport-climbing routes or on an ATV in the adjacent Medicine Bow National Forest. (For those who prefer the adorable over the adrenaline-inducing, the spa added goat yoga to its calendar this summer.)
Majestic scenery, limitless luxury, and endless adventure exemplify the Western experience at The Brush Creek Ranch; it's where rusticity meets luxury - a unique setting where one can reconnect with nature, revitalize the senses, and indulge in unlimited adventure. Situated in the heart of Wyoming’s famed Platte River Valley, between the Sierra Madre Mountain range & stunning Medicine Bow National Forest, Brush Creek Ranch is an all-inclusive luxury ranch resort like no other, exclusively designed for discerning travelers, ambitious adventurers, corporate group retreats, family luxury dude ranch vacations & glorious ranch destination weddings.
In the luxurious, timbered rooms, with open-hearth fireplaces and plush amenities, families can spread out in restored 19th-century log cabins with decks, full kitchens, and expansive views, or stay in the upscale Magee Homestead, exclusively for adults ages 21 and older. Activities at Brush Creek Ranch are endless and can be tailored to just about any ability level. Plan for an unforgettable dinner experience at The Farm’s Cheyenne Club, and don’t leave without a tour of the stunning wine cellar.
Ranch activities will keep everyone busy, but the lodge rooms and log cabins – some with antler chandeliers in open-air kitchens, fur throws tossed over king-size beds, and fireplaces – make winding down easy. Carve out at least one afternoon to visit The Farm, Brush Creek’s sustainable culinary complex with a restaurant, bakery, distillery, greenhouse, and more. Guests can take a cooking class, tour the distillery, or, for an all-ages treat, play with Alpine goats and learn to churn butter at Medicine Bow Creamery. Like all good summer outings, this one ends with ice cream. By the way,Virtuoso travelers receive all meals and a $150 activity credit per adult.
It's not too late to reclaim a sense of independence riding the trails, driving cattle, fly-fishing, or hiking 12,000-foot Medicine Bow Peak. Wander through the 20,000-square-foot greenhouse that produces 100,000 pounds of fresh produce annually, ensuring true farm-to-table fare. The adventures at this all-inclusive, authentic working cattle ranch are nearly endless. Unlike summer.
'til next week!
