“Today millions of city dude ranch vacationers are looking to Spa Dude Ranches to fulfill their dreams of being a cowboy or cowgirl and enjoy the peace; “wellness” and pampering that go hand in hand with active and passive spa vacations.
Some Spa dude ranches offer luxury pampering, weight management, massage and aroma therapy, spiritual awareness, stress control, herbal and holistic wraps, nutritional programs and special diets that feature low fat healthy foods for all, prevention and body conditioning.
One of the real added benefits of Spa Dude Ranch Vacations is the natural beauty and the surroundings that make each of these dude and spa ranches so unique and special.
While there are many dude ranch vacations that offer massage and limited spa programs there are only a handful of Dude Ranch Spa Vacations that truly offer many of the programs and features that traditional spas offer.
Be sure to check with each dude ranch and inquire of the level of spa treatments that they feature in addition to the horseback riding, fishing, hiking and children’s programs they may offer.” — Ranch Web
