Smith Fork Ranch

45362 Needle Rock Rd.
Crawford, CO, 81415, United States
TEL: (970) 921-3454

The ranch’s authentic western look owes much to its working history, but there are also updated luxury touches like a hot tub, feather beds, and hand-crafted soaps. American antiques and hand-made quilts decorate the rooms, and the buildings boast original, log cabin-style walls. The dining options are also true to the western roots and may include steak from grass-fed cattle or produce from the organic garden. Activities include horseback riding on the nearby trails, sitting on the wrap-around porch, or hiking the gorge rim in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.

Room to Book:

Separate from the main lodge, choose a cabin for more space and privacy.

Insider Tip:

Go wine tasting at local cellars such as Black Bridge Winery, which is also a farm and market.
