Campfires are set up at your schedule, and at 'no' cost to you. Hiking on the property, in the Arapaho National Forest our property backs up to, or in Evergreen's many trails are at your schedule. Evergreen also has some great biking trails.

The loft is decorated with a ranch/country rustic theme.
The ranch is also available for family and friend reunions/reunions, destination weddings/receptions/rehearsal dinners/meet and greets/other large events, etcetera. We require the Lodge and the 2 Barn Lofts to be booked for events involving up to 150 guests maximum to protect our guests' privacy. Minimum stay requirements apply per season.

We would love to introduce you to the ranch life, the critters who live with us on Willow Creek Ranch, and those that visit often and live just on the other side of the fence in the Arapaho National Forest. Ranch life is hard work, but fun if you love the lifestyle, and we sure do. We want our guests to have access to all the ranch property...This makes the introduction to the ranch and the critters a must. Relax on the large deck with your favorite beverage and watch the horses graze close by...Former guests and visitors to the ranch are still talking about the experience!
We will show you the hiking paths into the Arapaho National Forest. Pack a snack, some water (bottled provided), your camera, and enjoy the views. The ranch is also available for your walking and hiking pleasure. Our rural country roads are great for a walk or run.
Lease one of our horses for riding, or just for pictures ($50.00 Per Hour Per Horse or portion thereof), Tips for the wranglers are appreciated. Guides are required for trail rides (experienced riders only as they do not call this the Rocky Mtns for nothing) at no extra charge. 16 years of age and older preferred on Trail Rides...Parents take full responsibility for their children they put on a horse. Your safety is our major concern. Bring your horse if you prefer...there is free parking for your horse trailer and a fee per horse per day for boarding & hay...$20.00 Per day.
Your family and friends are more than welcome to visit you anytime during your stay at the ranch. Let us know ahead of time, and we can arrange a campfire and at no charge.
Major ski areas are within 45 minutes to an hour and half of the ranch...Copper, Winter Park, Mary Jane, Keystone, Loveland, and Vail. Entertainment, Broncos, Rockies, Elitch Six Flags, Dinner & Theater in Denver is just 30-40 minutes away in the opposite direction...The best of both worlds while staying on Willow Creek Ranch.
Willow Creek Ranch is located on the front range of the Colorado Mountains you have always wanted to see, the Denver you have always wanted to visit, and the ski resorts you have always dreamed of experiencing. The ski resorts are beautiful to visit in the summer too...Their beauty does end with the snow season...It just begins!
There is a Wal-Mart Superstore at the Evergreen Parkway Exit 252 at I-70 a King Soopers (Kroger), Safeway (Vons), and a Walgreens on Evergreen Parkway on your drive to the ranch for your shopping needs. The King Soopers and Safeway shopping centers each have a liquor store and restaurants.
A reservation is not confirmed until a full booking deposit/payment is received. The property/Lofts/Lodge comes pretty much as pictured on the website...I'm constantly redecorating...You will not be disappointed with the furnishings and decorations. This is not a hotel...you get sooooooo much more here at Willow Creek Ranch. While we certainly want you to feel at home, we know you will take are of the loft and leave it's contents in the condition you find it. As this is a working ranch and the owners live/work on the premises, we will give you as much privacy as you require. Unpredictable weather in Colorado can bring heavy snow in the early spring, fall and winter...It is highly recommended you use a 4 WD, All WD, or 4Matic vehicle while driving in the mountains and in Denver in the snow.
Be sure to ask for Jude or Andy when you call the ranch 303-670-5584. If we are not available we will return your call as soon as possible and definitely by the end of the day.

About: WCR Guest Residence LLC has 40 acres that back up to the Arapaho National Forest. The towering ponderosa pines, blue spruce, and the aspens are staged below a mountain of boulders, dirt, various creatures, and their homes in the forest at 8600 feet. The stars seem to be as close as the ground you walk on. The critters are close too, but not too close. The temperature is about 10 degrees cooler in the summer than down in Denver, and in other towns along the front range. The serenity of the forest, its' critters, and the soft breeze of the evening through the evergreens will lull you to sleep like never before. We have a few horses, black angus, 3 friendly dogs, Shotgun, Jackson, & Tessa, who are family and occupy space with us here on the ranch. My lady, Jude, and I are friendly, laid back, and love our lifestyle . Though we often visit our boat docked at a marina in California, the ranch is our soul. We want to share with you the beauty and serenity of Willow Creek Ranch Guest Residence , and an experience that will bring you back again and again.
Why Evergreen, CO, USA:
WCR Guest Residence LLC, established in 2000, is a working ranch with horses, and we live on the premises. In 2010 we decided to share our beautiful ranch with the Barn Loft rentals, and added the Lodge in June, 2013. We enjoy entertaining and taking care of our guests while giving them privacy they may require. The quietness of the forest at night, and the ranch's seclusion, makes for a very restful night's sleep. The Upper Bear Creek area has some of the most beautiful mountain views in the world. As you come up Upper Bear Creek Road to the ranch, the view of Mt. Evans is breath taking. Sitting on the deck with your favorite refreshment, and enjoying the ranch with its' quiet beauty is very relaxing.
The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
The access to Arapaho National Forest on our horses, and for a day of hiking is priceless. During the hunting season, we have the best of both worlds within a few miles, and we can stay dry and warm...Whether it's snowing or not. Having the forest critters visit us on a daily basis makes for great entertainment when family and friends visit. Taking care of the family of critters that live on the ranch is a pleasure...not a chore.
