Rocky Mountain Rendezvous: Discover Smith Fork Ranch Romance
Let’s face it: Smith Fork Ranch is one of the most romantic locations in the Rocky Mountains. Swoon-worthy vistas are everywhere you look. The rustic luxuries of the accommodations offer comfort, elegance and relaxation. Most of all, the Ranch feels a world away from the noise of the modern world, letting you focus on the things that really matter.
Smith Fork Ranch’s romantic aspects make it the perfect escape for couples. Here are just a few ways you can spend your quality time together.
A Romantic Trail Ride
Saddle up for a horseback adventure like no other. You’ll explore more than 300 acres of ranch land and endless untouched backcountry, with sweeping mountain scenery around every bend. Not an experienced equestrian? No problem. Smith Fork’s versatile riding program can accommodate all ability levels, and our wranglers will set you up with horses just right for both of you.

North Fork Valley Explorations
The Old West is alive and well in the charming mountain towns of Colorado’s North Fork Valley. But there are surprises in store as well: award-winning vineyards and tasting rooms, abundant cherry and peach orchards, artist’s studios, and authentic Americana everywhere down every road. Take some time to explore the offerings.
A Hike or Bike Through the Hills
Get away from it all. Miles of scenic hiking trails can be found on and off the ranch. Popular hikes nearby include a climb to the base of Needle Rock lookout, or an all-day hike to the top of Bald Mountain. We also offer complimentary bikes available to use for self-guided mountain or road biking adventures. Ride up Virginia Creek for a private picnic. It’ll be just you, the one you love and the inspiring beauty of nature all around you.
Couples Massage in the Open Air
It’s not all adventure here. We leave plenty of time for relaxation and rejuvenation. And the perfect path to inner peace leads to our Massage Outpost, an al fresco spot located next to a bubbling waterfall along a spring-fed creek. You can both get a restorative massage while enjoying the peaceful sounds of nature. If you’ve spent the day hiking or biking or horse riding, try the Ultimate Treat for Tired Feet, a soothing foot/ankle/calf treatment in our spa.
Stargazing Under a Perfectly Clear Night Sky
The sun dips behind Needle Rock every night – but that’s when the sky really lights up. There’s nothing quite like sitting out on a Smith Fork night (perhaps a glass of wine from our expansive cellar in hand) and looking up into an awe-inspiring Milky Way panorama. Trust us, you haven’t seen the stars ‘til you’ve seen them from this vantage point.
