An Overnight Hut Trip
Are you looking for something new to do this summer season in the high country? How about a Family Hut Trip to Vagabond Ranch! Vagabond Ranch is about 16 miles north of Granby, Colorado on CR 125. I put the word hut in quotes as you’ll soon find out it’s a very POSH establisment, but, a hut nonetheless! There's running water and a refrigerator for starters, plus linens and indoor toilets.
I was lucky enough to visit this amazing place in the winter with about 14 girlfriends. We did a quick overnight trip and all the while kept telling myself 'I should stay longer' and how great of an adventure it would be with the kids, another family, more friends, yadda yadda. In the winter, the huts are accessible only by snowshoes, cross country skis or snowmobile. We skied the 3 miles in with our backpacks full, a few sleds filled with food and beverages and ready to have a nice getaway.
I encourage you to at least investigate the trip. Talk about relaxation – there’s a hot tub, campfire and yoga space. Activities in the winter were plentiful. Guided cross country ski trips, backcountry skiing, sledding, snowmobiling, you name it. Once we arrived, we chose to eat, drink, play games and hang out. In the summer, it’s not possible to be bored. You can bike, hike or even drive right into the huts. The ranch offers guided hikes, mountain bike rides and horseback rides, as well as gold panning, fishing and swimming.
So, check it out. There are many cabins to chose from at Vagabond, or you can try any number of the other huts in theGrandCountyarea depending on what you’re in the mood for. Happy Hutting!
