Restoration Ranch Colorado

This idyllic property is the perfect place to get away for reflection, relaxation, and recreation. At an altitude above 8,000 feet and just 45 minutes from Denver, the Ranch is secluded but easy to access. There is no cost to our stakeholder groups – emergency communication specialists (dispatchers), fire/EMS, law enforcement including Department of Corrections and park rangers, ED/ICU personnel, victims’ advocates, members of the judiciary, and their families. Reservations are on a first come, first served basis.

We take the safety of our guests seriously. The location of the Ranch is not disclosed until a Waiver and NDA are signed.

The kitchen is well stocked with basic items such as coffee maker, pots, pans, dishes and utensils.

Self-directed activities including snow shoeing and sledding in the winter. Hiking, wildlife watching, and fishing (at nearby locations) are available in the summer. Cable TV and internet provided (although at slower speeds).

The Ranch and facilities are also ideal for team building exercises, small retreats, debriefings, and other agency gatherings. Agencies are asked to make a tax-deductible donation for such events.

Spending time at the Ranch is one of my favorite things! I spent time up there to volunteer to help get it ready, and then also for an event. No matter if you are there to chop wood, or relax, you are guaranteed a great time! There is so much wildlife, and is nice and secluded for the best relaxation. Kathryn has made this her priority to make sure that first responders are able to get the much needed time away and we love her for that! If you are thinking about a “stay-cation,” think Restoration Ranch Colorado. It is the place to go for many occasions!

Who can come?

Dispatchers, fire/EMS, law enforcement officers (including corrections officers and park rangers), emergency department and ICU personnel, victims’ advocates, members of the judiciary, and their families.

Who will be there?

We do our best to ensure no one else is visiting the Ranch during your stay. If there is an activity scheduled during the time you request a reservation, you will be notified. However, no other guests will share the main lodge accommodations with you. A Ranch caretaker is always onsite during your visit.

What is provided?

The house is fully furnished. All household amenities and linens are provided.

How many people may come with me?

We currently can accommodate a maximum of six people for overnight stays. If your group is larger than six, contact us to see if we can accommodate you. Day visits are more flexible, but capacity should be discussed when you make your reservation.

May I bring my dog or other pet?

No personal pets are allowed.

May I bring alcohol?

Alcohol is prohibited unless it is provided by the Ranch at a Ranch event.

What about wildlife?

Moose, bear, elk, wild turkeys, a variety of seasonal birds, deer, and black fox have been seen on the property. There have been no mountain lion sightings, but they are known to be in the area.

What about cell phone service and internet?

Cell phone service is spotty at best. The Ranch does have land lines. There is satellite-based internet and TV but speeds are likely to be less than what you are used to.
