Why Smith Fork Ranch Is Perfect For Multigenerational Travel

The family vacation isn’t what it used to be. It’s getting bigger. More and more families are expanding for their trips – parents, siblings, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins … they are all coming along for the ride in search of togetherness. Say hello to the multigenerational travel trend – a trend that Smith Fork Ranch is perfect for. Here’s why. 


Adventures for Everyone

Horseback riding, fly fishing, hiking, biking, skeet shooting, archery, tree-house climbing … the list of outdoor adventures at Smith Fork Ranch is a long one, and if you’ve got family members looking for excitement in the Rocky Mountains, they will not be disappointed. But activities here aren’t always of the pulse-pounding variety. After all, soaking in the colors of a summer sunset with a glass of wine from Smith Fork Ranch’s Wine Spectator-award-wining cellar is a kind of adventure, isn’t it?

An Incomparable Setting

We’ve heard it said countless times: An all-inclusive Smith Fork Ranch vacation is like visiting another world – it’s an escape from the speed and noise of modern life these days (Don’t worry, though: SFR is WiFi-equipped). Time slows down out here, a gentle breeze in the aspen trees, and the mountains of the West Elk range looming nearby. It’s the ideal environment to reconnect with family members old and young, to share stories of days gone by, and to create new memories.

Food for All Tastes (and Ages)

We take food seriously here. That’s why most of our ingredients are sourced from local farmers in the North Fork Valley (that is, those ingredients aren’t sourced from our very own organic homestead garden). But the fresh, farm-to-table goodness is just the beginning. Our chefs want every member of your family to look forward to every meal – which is why in the evenings at 6 p.m., we offer an optional kids dinner with counselors, while adults enjoy cocktails on the pavilion. Make-your-own pizza night and barbecue night are big hits, and we can always adjust menus based on age and preference.

A Staff That Goes Above & Beyond

You might be coming with your extended family, but you’ll leave feeling like the clan has extended a bit more. The guest-to-staff ratio is one-to-one, so you can guarantee you’ll always be taken care of like you’re one of the SFR family. And if you have something out-of-the-ordinary in mind, just ask — Smith Fork will do its best to make it happen.
