Family-Friendly Lodging

Everyone will have a relaxing time!

We have kids and we have taken them on vacations. A simple statement that embodies a unique understanding of the challenges of making a family vacation enjoyable for both parents and kids.

Here at Tired Dog Ranch your kids are welcome to experience the old fashioned joys of life on a farm and living in the country – you see, Tired Dog Ranch is not just rental vacation cabins, it is a little working farm with daily chores and fun too. You can join in whenever you want, feeding the chickens (and maybe holding a chick), checking for eggs, feeding horses, picking blackberries, identifying veggies in the garden (and eating them too).

And we have fun too. We have lots of room to play and kids really love to be adventurers, leading the way following the ribbons through the forest, or participating in our Forest Egg Hunt. How about finding frogs in the stream. Catching grasshoppers. Making shelters from branches. Hide and Seek. Going on a hike and eating a picnic lunch by a mountain stream.

We have little animals to hold and learn about, like turtles, cats, and sometimes baby chicks. Maybe they will even see an elk or a raccoon if they are lucky. Enjoy an evening at the campfire, roasting roast hotdogs or marshmallows. Lie beneath the clean, open sky at night and watch shooting stars.

Tired Dog Ranch is a place that takes you back to a simpler time of simple and wholesome pleasures. Often adults get a chance to experience such joys for the very first time too. And maybe even learn a thing or two about building a fire, or forest first aid, or get inspired in some way. For family vacations, Tired Dog Ranch is the ideal place to discover the inner child, and a place for kids to be kids.
