Stay closer to home – U.S. West & more!

Vacations for family, friends or romance in small groups, destination properties or small ship


Dude or Guest ranches across the U.S. West offer all-inclusive stays loaded with outdoor activities for all.  Experiences vary by location, yet provide vacationers options such as horseback riding, fly-fishing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing/kayaking and river rafting.  Many have special Kids programs.  Lodging and amenities also vary but most will qualify between 3-5 star rankings.  Optional activities/excursions are often available as well.  We share a few examples:

  Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort ~ Solvang, CA (Santa Ynez Valley)

   C Lazy U Ranch ~ Grandby, CO  (heart of Rockies)

   Tanque Verde Ranch ~ Tucson, AZ  (next to Saguaro N.P.)


 ROMANCE & LUXURY  (Glamping)

   Dunton River Camp ~ Dolores, CO (Four Corners/Mesa Verde area)       

   Fireside Resort ~ Wilson/Jackson Hole, WY      

   The Resort at Paws Up ~ Greenough, MT (outside Missoula)



   Miraval Arizona ~ No of Tucson, AZ (in Santa Catalina Mtns)

   Post Ranch Inn ~ Big Sur, CA (1,200 ft above Pacific / near Carmel)

   Red Mountain Resort ~ Ivins, UT (adjacent to St. George)

We can’t feature them all, but there’s a virtual cornucopia to choose from depending upon vacation interests, group logistics or budget.  I am personally familiar with a good number of properties and also know how to track down those with activity specialties.  Consider a destination wedding filled with the outdoors & loved ones!  


North America river, coastal and Great Lakes cruising opens new doors to our own backyard's natural world and history. We have first-hand experience as passenger & booking agent for UnCruise and Viking who offer extraordinary moderate adventure small ship itineraries from Alaska down to Baja, Hawaii and the Great Lakes. Small ships don't always need a pier . . . their ability to intimately observe wildlife and provide more shore time to explore local culture/history can only be rivaled by their unforgettable onboard hospitality.

                    Yes, we can recommend white water rafting trips across USA too!  

I am delighted to craft custom itineraries, provide in-depth itinerary details

and check departure availability/rates for featured destinations and more upon request.
