Here at the Ranch, summer’s many onsite activities and backcountry adventures have us running from one thing to the next — but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to slow down once in a while. And, when it’s time to wind down from sun-soaked days, the opportunities to refresh and restore are plenty. Below, browse a few of the ways we’ve been cultivating wellness at the Ranch.
Stroll Along the River Trail
Soothing nature walks have been shown to boast a host of health benefits, including reduced stress and improved well-being. For a healthy dose of fresh air and wild views, set out for a stroll along the stunning River Trail. Visit on a whim or make an entire day of it by scheduling a nourishing picnic at the Lost Library’s luxurious indoor-outdoor riverside lounge. Because, tasty hor d’oeuvres, good company and the tranquil sounds of the river? That’s all the rejuvenation we need.
Enjoy Your ‘Me-Time’ at the Post Pool
Don’t get us wrong — we love splashing around and shooting pool hoops with the kiddos. But there’s something incredibly indulgent about laying out beside quiet waters to unwind, read and take a dip without distraction, and sometimes that’s just what we need. The Post’s 50-foot pool with two swimming lanes and heated spas is reserved for the adults, so you can fully enjoy your ‘me-time’ whether digging into your summer read or swimming laps.
Try Out a New Outdoor Activity
There’s nothing like fresh air, sunshine and some feel-good movement. At the Ranch, we have an array of outdoor fitness classes and activities to choose from this summer, including Yoga on the River, Open Pickleball, Outdoor Fitness, Stand Up Paddle Boarding on Stony Lake, VR Run Club, and more. And, for those with active pets who want in on the fun, our Wednesday Doggy Dawn Patrol events invite members to gather for a sunrise walk or hike with their loyal four-legged companions.
Treat Yourself to Something Sweet
Roast marshmallows under the stars. Catch up with friends over good eats at a Friday Barn Social. Put new recipes to the test in the comfort of your kitchen space. Whether picking up new baking essentials at the General Store or enjoying family time over ice-cream cones at The Post, summer at The Ranch is full of sweet, soul-nourishing moments sure to refill your cup.
