While our primary target audience at Marble Mountain Ranch is families traveling with kids, we often have clients seeking a serene spot sans the distraction of young-uns.  For us, the answer is simple: come when the kids are in school.

Trail Riding Girls

After September first, it seems that most of the schools are in full swing. Our ranch guest population, by default, now turns into a more adult crowd.  The guest profile now is composed of couples, solo travelers, and groups of women/men traveling for a common purpose.

One of our popular Fall offerings at Marble Mountain Ranch is our Bed and Breakfast Cooking Retreat .  This event  emphasizes the culinary experience here and is ideal for couples  or women’s travel.  The Fall season also coincides with the prime fly fishing season and one fun variation of the “couples travel” theme is to mix daily fly fishing for steelhead trout and upscale dining and wine pairings in the evening.

Groups of women/girls traveling is a growing travel trend and has been a common theme at Marble Mountain Ranch.  The emphasis  for these groups has been on the horses, with group trail rides, and on team rafting or the dining experience…and getting crazy at times.  Yes, we call these “GURLS” groups.

Solo women travelers also will find the dude ranch experience to be a safe and rewarding option.  Here you can mix adventure with an outdoor venue that is comfortably managed for solo traveling.

The opportunity to enjoy spectacular Fall colors, serene mountain settings, horseback trail riding, fly fishing, and rafting without the intrusion of children makes this the ideal time to plan for your girls outing or that romantic get-away you are dreaming of.

See you this next Fall!   Doug
