THE RANCH AT EMERALD VALLEY
A scenic, rustic escape from civilization has never been so civilized.
Just a short ride up the mountain from The Broadmoor, and bordering more than 100,000 acres of the Pike National Forest, a unique, unforgettable and distinctively “Colorado” experience is taking shape.
The Ranch at Emerald Valley was originally built more than 100 years ago. In 1923, Broadmoor founder Spencer Penrose purchased it from the Girl Scouts, constructed additional buildings on the site and turned the property into his personal getaway.
Today, The Ranch at Emerald Valley combines the rustic charm and inspiration of a wilderness enclave with the incomparable luxury and service of The Broadmoor. Fish in pristine mountain lakes, hike on scenic trails or explore on horseback. After dusk, unwind in a soothing hot tub and relax in one of 10 beautifully appointed cabins in front of a crackling fire.
A dedicated ranch staff and on-site Broadmoor chef elevate this unique, all-inclusive hideaway beyond its 8,200-foot altitude. But what truly sets this experience apart from other mountain retreats is that with one phone call, a resort vehicle will whisk guests of The Ranch down the mountain to enjoy golf, spa, tennis, shopping, dining - and all the amenities our resort has to offer.
Plan now to experience this one-of-a-kind wilderness retreat.
Now available for reservations.

It's Time to PLAY
The Broadmoor’s newest dining and activity venue, Play, opens in Broadmoor West this April. A restaurant, lounge and late-night destination, Play includes six lanes of bowling, games, a private function room, and a menu
with a new twist on American “Comfort Food,” as well as a fun variety of international fare. You’ll also find “adult milkshakes” and an extensive Colorado microbrew program.
A Brand New Bee
If you’re a fan of The Golden Bee, you’ll be amazed at the change! Our popular dining spot known for its authentic 19th century English pub design is now double in size on the inside, yet faithful to the original interior. Adding to the excitement is a traditional pub entry and rooftop seating with the addition of the Garden Terrace. You’ll still find traditional pub fare on a now expanded menu, cloth “bee stings” and sing-along piano, but we've grown the beer and cocktail program and space for good times.
The debut of the newly enhanced Tavern features a stunning conservatory space, Le Jardin, with lush florals and a 16-foot chandelier centerpiece. The remodeled Mayan Room has also been renamed Entre Deux. Both areas complement the original Tavern and the Toulouse-Lautrec lithographs. Along with the stunning changes, the Tavern now offers an expanded wine and bourbon program, as well as new menu
items designed to elevate this Broadmoor favorite.

The Fitness Center Gets a New Look
To help you shrink, tighten and tone, we’ve done some expanding. The Broadmoor Fitness Center has been enlarged and improved with 10 new state-of-the-art Cybex treadmills added to the cardio room. Now, all the cardio equipment—including ellipticals, stationary bikes and AMTs®—have south-facing views of Cheyenne Mountain and the golf course. On the outside deck, and with the same spectacular vistas, you’ll also find four new Keiser® ‘spinning’ bikes. The fitness center still has a full spectrum of weight training equipment including machines, free weights and a ‘multi-function’ trainer. New class schedules include TRX (Total Body Resistance Exercise), RLS (Release, Lengthen & Strengthen) and breathing/meditation. Come experience the new look of fitness!
