Colorado Guest Ranch and Fly Fishing Lodge

Named after the rugged mountain range that rises above it and the untouched wilderness that surrounds it, Northern Colorado’s historic Rawah Ranch is an authentic western guest ranch located in one of the most scenic and unspoiled valleys in North America.

Experience Colorado’s finest fly fishing, casting for trout on our sparkling private stretch of the Big Laramie River. Bring out your inner cowboy on a backcountry horseback ride along alpine ridges or through colorful groves of aspen. Relax with a peaceful walk along meandering trails through the quiet Rawah wilderness, where wildlife roam freely. Or simply kick back in a rocking chair on the front porch, or curl up by a crackling fire in the rustic Rawah Lodge.

Join us for an unforgettable experience of this American legacy we call home—we can’t wait to welcome you to Rawah.

While at Rawah, our guests enjoy their own private log cabins with a private bath, warmed by fireplaces and woodstoves, and provided service daily by our housekeeping staff. Our cabins are each unique in their names and character, and provide the perfect setting for lasting memories.

The Historic Rawah Ranch
To the mountain tribe of Ute Indians, Rawah was the word for “abundance.” Resting at 8,400 feet just south of the Colorado-Wyoming border, Rawah Ranch occupies a beautiful spot in the still practically undiscovered Laramie River Valley.

The railroad companies set our ranch legacy in motion when President Theodore Roosevelt signed the deed of trust for the land Rawah Ranch occupies as part of a land acquisition. Soon after, our valley was added to what would eventually become the Roosevelt National Forest. With the passage of the Wilderness Act in 1964, our Rawah Wilderness Area was preserved indefinitely. Earlier – in 1948 – a man by the name of Ralph Jordan had the great foresight to establish Rawah Ranch, not as a cattle ranch, but as a place for guests to simply visit – to stay in comfortable accommodations, enjoy hearty meals, and take in the beauty of the surrounding wilderness. Today Rawah Ranch seeks to capture the same original vision by welcoming guests from across the country and around the world to our historic mountain escape.

We believe the ranch’s legacy continues with each new visitor that makes this place their own – we can’t wait to welcome you home to Rawah.
