Brush Creek Ranch | Saratoga, WY

@2016 Susan Edel

Let’s be honest, we’ve probably all done it at some point…dreamt about leaving the craziness behind and finding a remote cabin on acres of land ~ I think the Dixie Chicks said it best in their song Cowboy Take me Away , “Set me free oh I pray, closer to heaven above“. It’s an allure that’s all too tempting for many of us ~ we’re yearning to slow down and simplify our lives…even if only for a week or two.

Sorrel River Ranch Resort | Utah

On a day trip to Arches National Park from Gateway, Colorado, I made it a point to stop and visit the Sorrel River Ranch Resort.

The resort has a great location near Moab and sits on a nice property with surrounding red rock, horses, grassy areas with adirondack chairs around fire pits for relaxing or just pull up a chair to the river’s edge and watch kayakers float by.

Sorrel River Ranch is a relaxed resort offering an upscale outdoor experience in a good location close to Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. The resort offers accommodations for everybody but it feels like a perfect location for some good old-fashioned family bonding. There are many activities offered such as horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, swimming and more, along with the adult treat of an in-house spa.

The spacious cabins overlook the Colorado River and are clean with a rustic decor. The landscape is beautiful with looming red rocks and the Colorado River right outside your cabin door.

There a few dining options on property and the chef incorporates a farm to table philosophy with items grown from the resort garden.

If you’ll excuse me, I can hear the dinner bell ringing now.

If you’re looking for a nice place to stay near the national parks and Moab, this is an excellent option.

This post is an honorable mention only and not a full review since I did not stay at this resort but I thought it worthy of a mention.
