Colorado's Spring Creek Ranch Available During the Winter Holidays

Private Cattle Ranch With State-of-the-Art Amenities Is Yours for One Week

NEW CASTLE, CO--(Marketwire - August 3, 2009) - For the first time ever, the exclusive Spring Creek Ranch in Colorado will be open to one lucky family over the winter Holidays. Against the breathtaking Colorado winter backdrop, the Ranch offers up a rich experience and all the activities of a working cattle ranch. From the fully stocked wine cellar to the snowmobiles, this private 1,200 acre cattle ranch, including horses, chickens, goats and a diversity of wildlife, is completely yours for the week. Enjoy a truly magical country winter holiday and unforgettable New Year's experience under the wide-open sky.

Rise in the morning and take a short walk across fresh powdery snow to collect your fresh eggs for breakfast from the barn. If you're in the mood, the wrangler will saddle up horses and take you for a ride around the ranch. It will be so quiet and peaceful that the only sound you will hear is the snow crunching under the horses' hooves. Join the ranch crew as they make their daily rounds feeding the animals and checking the fence lines or pack a picnic and head out on snowshoes, cross-country skis or snowmobiles.

Just a little over an hour away from Aspen, the ranch is nestled in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and boasts sweeping views of undeveloped national forest. Featuring a 4,800 square-foot ranch house showcased in House and Garden and completely decorated in Ralph Lauren furnishings and authentic antiques, the ranch has a total of five beautifully appointed bedrooms. Its rustic charm is highlighted by the front and back porches that run the length of the house.

Upon your arrival you will be met by the owner or ranch manager and given a tour of the premises. Two refrigerators will be filled with the best eats and a cowboy chef is available to prepare simple delicious meals. Curl up in front of the blazing fireplace at night with a selection from the wine cellar, enjoy a game of billiards or watch a good movie on a big screen television. If you must occasionally touch base with civilization, make use of the office with wireless Internet.

Our concierge service can arrange a myriad of activities, including skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, a day of shopping, gourmet wine tasting or dinner at one of the best restaurants in the world.
