Newton Fork Ranch

Tucked away from the bustle of modern life, nestled in a serene corner of the world, stands a haven called "Newton Fork Ranch." It isn’t just a place; it’s an escape into a simpler, quieter existence, a place where time slows down and the art of conversation dances in the air.

Amidst the rolling hills, where the whispering winds harmonize with the rustling leaves, Newton Fork Ranch welcomes weary souls seeking solace from the chaos of daily life. Here, the melody of cell phone bells, chimes, and dings are replaced by the soft turn of book pages and the gentle laughter that accompanies cherished memories.

An Oasis for Peace and Solitude

The retreat, a sanctuary for tranquility seekers, understands the unspoken yearning for peace and solitude. Visitors arrive seeking the quiet rhythm of life's simpler pleasures. In the heart of this refuge lays a gate, an exclusive passage designed solely for the retreat's guests. Beyond it stretches - 50-miles in either direction, the George S. Mickelson Trail, a 109-mile expanse of nature's grandeur, inviting exploration on foot, by bike or horseback.

The Allure of the George S. Mickelson Trail

Amidst the scenic beauty of towering pines, aspen, and birch, the trail, once a bustling railroad line, now beckons avid outdoor enthusiasts to lose themselves in its serenity. The picturesque landscape and granite rock outcroppings add a rugged charm to the journey, while the surrounding wilderness teems with life—deer, foxes, and an array of birds, making every exploration an immersive encounter with nature's vibrant inhabitants.

Meandering gracefully through this natural wonderland, the trail's gentle 4% grade and crushed limestone base offers two-wheeled explorers a smooth ride. Numerous events grace the annual calendar of the Mickelson Trail, attracting enthusiastic cyclists. For dedicated riders, the Mickelson Trail hosts two notable Trail Treks yearly—one in summer, scheduled for June 21-23, 2024 and the other in fall, taking place from September 20-22 in 2024.

Accommodations Embedded in Nature

Book your stay early in any of the six majestic log cabins, Grandma’s Ranch House, or the Postmaster’s House. Each cabin and home are meticulously crafted to blend seamlessly with nature's canvas. They beckon visitors with promises of comfort and rustic elegance. Inside these havens, full kitchens await culinary creations, clawfoot bathtubs or slate-surround showers offer moments of luxurious relaxation, and gas fireplaces kindle warmth on chilly evenings. Decks offer panoramic views for witnessing nature's breathtaking spectacle in every season. All stand proudly amidst the pine and aspen trees, with easy access to the trail. Bring your hiking shoes and your dog! We have room to park your bikes and even a paneled corral in the trees for your horses.

Embracing the Symphony of Nature Throughout the Seasons

Guests embrace the symphony of nature—birdsong greeting the dawn, rustling leaves whispering secrets, and the distant calls of woodland creatures weaving tales of the wild. Here, time flows gently, allowing guests to reconnect with the simple joys of life and to find solace in the embrace of Mother Nature.

In winter, the landscape transforms into a snow-covered wonderland, where the retreat's visitors go snowshoeing in the brisk country air, then return to find warmth and companionship by the fireside. Spring brings the renewal of life, the chirping of fledglings, and the blossoming of vibrant flora. Summer offers sunny days for hiking, biking, and shared adventures. And as autumn paints the trees in fiery hues, guests find themselves lost in the beauty and magic of the changing seasons.  Throughout the year, in every season's embrace, Newton Fork Ranch is a testament to the simple joys of life - a respite from chaos, inviting all who seek to rediscover the beauty and magic of quietude.
