This is our fifth season doing gluten-free vacation on our guest ranch for people with celiac disease. Our kitchen staff is well versed on delicious gluten-free menus. We can also accommodate other food allergies, as many go along with celiac related sensitivities, such as soy, sugar, and corn. With food allergies it is hard handle cross contamination when dinning out. We are celiacs ourselves and have this problem.
We post our ingredients and encourage you to see what's cooking in our gluten-free menu. Just let us know what your needs are and we are small enough to easily work them into our menu plan. We also have a refrigerator for your own special foods that you bring. Please contact us to talk about how we can provide for your food allergies.
Many of our celiac vacationers do not wish to ride as this fits their idea of a great vacation. We attract adventure travelers, with nearby white water rafting, ballooning and rock climbing. The wildlife viewing and nature walks are like nowhere else on earth. . We are an easy day trip to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park Colorado, close to historical Native American areas, and next to the Oregon Trail with cavalry forts, stagecoach stations, and areas with dinosaur remains in Wyoming. There are rodeos and nightlife like Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo with country dancing and teen's night too. Look at the guest ranch activity page for some of the unbelievable selection of opportunities.
