“Dream no small dreams,” reads the carved inscription in this newly
constructed timber frame home. The residence sits on 240 acres, 16 miles west of
Trinidad. Colt Ranch is pleased to provide the finest in the way of western
lodging, food and entertainment. Your hosts, Jim and Darlene Colt, retreated
from their health care professions in the Denver area in the summer of 2004.
They were excited to build a new home on the ranch property they had owned for 8
years. The land is now home to a small herd of Highland cattle, six horses, and
two miniature burros. The Colt Ranch is the perfect setting for an intimate bed
and breakfast, family reunions, weddings, team building and corporate retreats.
The home meets the ADA requirements for those individuals with such needs.
The warmth of the home embraces you as you enter and gaze upward at the 28-foot
ceiling. The three guest bedrooms are large, each with a distinctive theme. The
Primero Room, located on the main floor, is decorated with memorabilia from the
historic mining town of the same name. The Native American and Cowboy rooms
located on the second floor welcome guests with their clawfoot bathtubs and
corner fireplaces. A furnished two bedroom and two bath apartment is also
located above the carriage house for folks who desire this type of
accommodation. In season, guests looking for a unique lodging experience are
welcome to stay in the comfortably furnished Sheepherder wagon or tipi. Try your
hand at cracking a bull whip or roping the iron steer. In addition to the
traditional B&B, the Colts also offer gourmet cooking and baking classes,
afternoon teas, stagecoach rides with a full course chuck wagon dinner, and a
Sunday brunch. The sites and sounds of the Old West are found here at the Colt
Call for upcoming events or to book your own private party. The
Colts look forward to your visit.
