Adult Only Weeks
Fall is the most beautiful time of year on the mountain. The summer rains have come and made everything a beautiful green. Later in October the leaves on the aspens and oak will begin to turn beautiful yellows, reds and orange! What a sight! Memories last forever and are the best gift we can give ourselves and our families. You know the memories made here at Sprucedale are super special! We want you to come experience this beauty with us and make your lasting memories with us! In the Fall, here at the ranch we enjoy horseback rides, delicious home-cooked meals, visiting, relaxing and taking in gorgeous vistas, wildlife and so much more! We look forward to having you come, join our family and friends here at the ranch!

Morning Trail Rides
In the fall, all rides and activities are organized according to availability and tailor-made to fit the current guests. We continue to ride daily, but often the experience is more Ranch-style. We check fencelines and patch the holes. We inspect pastures and water sources, and occasionaly move cattle. Other activities such as colt Leading, Picnic Rides, Rodeo Practice, Cow Milking, and Animal Feeding are still available, but are only scheduled upon request. Please contact us prior to your stay to make a plan that best fits you.

Come create your own relaxing Western vacation, or, if you'd rather be treated like a wrangler and get a real down-to-earth experience, bring your gloves and Billy will put you to work. This could be your chance to have the vacation you've always dreamed of!

Frequently Asked Questions
Are all activities available during the fall?
No. Not all activities are available during the fall due to staffing and/or weather. However, please ask if there is activity you would like to participate in, and we will do our best to accommodate that request. Due to the limited activities, fall prices are discounted from our normal rate.
The first deposit is $300 per cabin for the first 2 people plus $75 for each additional person.
The first deposit is due when making the reservation. Your cabin will be released if you fail to make a deposit after 2 weeks. The second deposit is the same amount as the first deposit and is due on or before February 1st of the year of the reservation. Failure to send the second deposit on time can cause loss of reservation and deposit. If the reservation is made after February 1st, then both the first and second deposit are due when making the reservation.
To move your reservation within the same year there is no charge if it is 90 days before your reservation. After 90 days you will be charged a $100 fee to move your reservation within the same year and a $100 fee to move to another year. If you move your reservation 30 days before and you are on a full capacity week it is a loss of deposit.
If you cancel your reservation before February 1st of the year of your reservation, your deposit minus a $100 cancellation fee will be refunded to you. Only ½ of your deposit will be refunded if you cancel between February 1st and April 1st, and all cancelations after April 1st will result in a loss of deposit.
There is a $100 charge for any person in your reservation that does not show up with their party unless we are notified 30 days before your arrival.

If you would like to move your reservation to the next year you need to let us know 60 days before your scheduled Specialty Week and there is a $100 fee. After 60 days ½ of your deposit can be moved to another year. After 30 days it is a loss of deposit.
RESERVATIONS & CABIN ASSIGNMETNS:
Our summer season is getting busier every year and with that, guests are booking 1-2 years out. We know that some of you have specific weeks that you love to come. Please know that we love you, but we will not hold cabins for you or your group. You are more then welcome to book 1-3 years out.
Cabin assignments are based on size, mobility, and date of reservation made. We try our hardest to give everyone the cabins that they love but you are not promised those cabins. If you do not want to be moved, you can pay full capacity for the cabin, and you will not be moved.
