Scullbinder Ranch lies on a stunning and remote 35 acres at the tip of Weber Mountain, in Mancos, Colo., along the Mancos River. The Ranch borders extensive BLM lands to the east and north, Mesa Verde National Park to the west and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Park to the south. A migratory route that birds, humans, and animals have utilized this landscape for centuries. You’ll find pottery from the Ancestral Puebloans (please leave it where you find it!), along with rubbish left by a Mormon rancher, his two wives, and 20 children! The one thing you won’t see are other people. We have no wifi, and cell phones do not work at the Ranch.
Glamp (aka “Glamour Camp”) in style at our Ranch, or stay in the Scullbinder Ranch Cabin. Two two-bed and two one-bed canvas tents will be equipped with one to two comfy double beds, bedding, furniture, and rugs. Share delicious meals of locally-sourced produce and meat, and locally-made beverages with your crew and guides. Get a last ride in on our 1.5-mile loop of mountain bike trails, complete with wooden bridges and other features. Dinner is available at an extra cost, and a light continental-style breakfast comes with your glamping stay (granola, bagels, coffee, tea). Glamping and camping is not included with your tour. You must pay separately. Please see our pricing here.
The Scullbinder Ranch Main House (formerly called “The Barn”) is currently equipped with a kitchen, a full and a half bathroom, a large community space and beds for four upstairs. The Main House is not open to the public unless you are dining with us and/or utilizing it as part of your corporate adventure retreat or special tour.
