The Ranch at Rock Creek has clearly mastered the art of making dreams come true. From top tier horseback riding to blue ribbon fly fishing to stagecoach excursions, this luxury guest ranch is a moveable feast for the senses. Still, many outdoorsy travelers have only one true wish: to share in the splendor of a ranch holiday with their best fur friend. The Ranch at Rock Creek makes this dream possible by welcoming pets on property with aplomb!

You don’t need to be a helicopter stage mom in the prestigious Westminster Dog Show to want to travel with your four-legged friend. When you include your canine in your ranch vacation, you want to be sure that they are in a secure, comfy home away from home. Knowing that they are truly welcome rather than merely tolerated gives you the freedom to do whatever tickles your fancy.

The Ranch at Rock Creek is one of the few pet-friendly resorts in the ranch category. Well-mannered, people-friendly dogs will enjoy endless meandering trails, brisk dips in the pristine rivers and robust mountain air. When you book a pet-friendly room, the ranch ensures your accommodations are equipped with pet bowls, plastic bags for clean-up and a comfortable place to rest sleepy heads. Leashes may be encouraged in outdoor common areas.

There are certain things you can’t put a price on – your first ice cream cone, your first kiss, your first road trip. Reeling in a trophy rainbow trout? Beyond priceless. In angling, as in life, one has aspirations. If failure is not an option, place your bet on Activities Director Patrick Little as your guide. The ranch has evolved in a sustainable way, in order to provide an unmatchable travel experience for guests.
