WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
You’ll immerse yourself fully in ranch life, saddling up at sunrise to gather and move pasture herds, before spending the afternoon checking the animal’s water or repairing fences. Every day on the ranch is different and you’ll feel a strong sense of contribution as the sun beings to set over the prairie, your essential work vital to the ranch’s successful operation.
You’ll lodge in a newly renovated, early-20th building with three-foot thick adobe walls. With double or authentic bunk style beds, each room comes complete with a bathroom, full kitchen, living room, and bags of American charm.
Although it’s not all hard work. Adjacent to your accommodation is a spring-fed lake and wetland. It’s home to waterfowl and perfect for warmwater fishing and an energizing swim. Spend an afternoon sketching, writing, or enjoying a siesta in the shade.
With conservation and community at the heart of what Chico Basin Ranch does, you will leave feeling a deep sense of reward, satisfied by your hard work and the authentic ranch life experience.
