COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—The Broadmoor announced today the opening of The Ranch at Emerald Valley in August 2013.
Just 8 miles west of The Broadmoor, encircling more than 100,000 acres of the Pike National Forest, The Ranch at Emerald Valley is a retreat that features ten cabins, sleeping 34 guests between them, each refurbished in mountain cabin style offering rooms highlighted by wood burning fireplaces. Broadmoor chef-prepared meals are served in the Grand Lodge.
Guests staying at The Ranch at Emerald Valley have full access to the amenities at The Broadmoor including the multiple swimming pools, fitness center, golf, shops, spa and distinct dining possibilities.
Originally founded over 100 years ago, Spencer Penrose, the gold and copper magnate who built The Broadmoor in 1918, bought the ranch in 1923, constructed additional buildings on site, and turned the property into his personal getaway called Camp Vigil.
“Reconnecting the history of The Ranch at Emerald Valley with The Broadmoor is a perfect complement to our heritage,” says Steve Bartolin, president and CEO of The Broadmoor. “We’re excited to offer guests an authentic Colorado wilderness experience. The service and cuisine at The Ranch will be at Broadmoor standards, while guests can enjoy access to the outstanding amenities at the resort.”
After debuting this August, The Ranch at Emerald Valley will be open May through October.
