Cather springs ranch
July 14, 2013
My family and I were on a two week road trip from ottawa, Canada. Our destination was Colorado because my youngest son's favorite hockey team is the Colorado Avalanche. We wanted him to see all that Colorado had to offer. Well we struck gold when we arrived at the cabin in the forest. It was just as it appeared on the website. A quintessential oasis in the midst of trees and mountains with no human life other than our family of five. It was a 20 to 25 mins drive up a dirt road that hugs steep cliffs - an all wheel drive is the way to go- that brings you to your home away from home. You could easily do day trips from the cabin, however we were there for only 3 nights so we brought everything we needed in food so we could just enjoy... Our children are 15, 14 and 12 years old. They fished in the pond on the property and my oldest boy was lucky enough to catch one ( and release). The hummingbirds were mesmerizing at the feeder on the deck. We played a family game of home free around the cabin and spent hours in the sunroom playing family board games that were made available in th cabin. We also took advantage of the Broadmoor Stables that were on the mountain. A highlight of the trip. The people were so friendly and Kalie was a wonderful guide. It was the first time my children had ever gone on a trail ride ( many years for my husband and I). We went through the mountains and forest and the little rain that fell made it all the more authentic. My daughter wears the necklace she bought with some of her horses hair ( moose) encased in it proudly. The weather was lovely - sunny in the mornings with some cloud and rain in the afternoons ( did not damper the experience at all!). The cottage was clean and cozy. Thank you to Maryann and Hugh for sharing their cottage so that we could make memories that will last a lifetime.
