Precautionary Measures to Ensure Your Stay is Healthy, Relaxing, and Enjoyable
We remain committed to upholding the highest standards of cleanliness with the following measures as everyday practice and policy to continue to provide a safe and clean environment for our guests and staff. We follow CDC Guidance for mask and social distancing policy related to COVID-19.

All Activities, Heck’s Tavern, Ranch Creek Spa, Special Events, and Lodging Amenities are reserved for overnight guests and The Ranches owners only. Ranch House Restaurant is available to non-lodging guests with advance reservations.

The CDC Recommends:

  • Taking precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area. COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area.
