We have a variety of beautiful buildings on the ranch. Some are historic, others newly renovated. Some are public, others are private. Here’s the rundown on the buildings of 4UR:
The Leavell Family Home. As you enter the Guest Ranch, there is a large home on the left, with a smallish granny unit and garage behind. This is the owner’s family home, where Pete and Lindsey spend their summer and are often joined by their children and grandchildren. This is their private space, so please refrain from saying “hello” until you see them at the lodge or about on the ranch!
The Spa and Poolhouse. Next to the pool is the pool house, where the restrooms and locker rooms are located, as well as the sauna. Also here is the building we call “Little Medicine,” where our rooms for massage treatments are located. Need a rub down after a couple days on horseback? Just let us know.
The Hot Springs. Also adjacent to the pool, the natural mineral springs located on our property are pumped into this covered pool area.
The Main Lodge. Here, you will be greeted each morning with a blazing fire. You can also reconnect with the outside world here via newspapers and wi-fi access. However, we recommend simply going with the flow and enjoying the camaraderie of new-found friends. After a day of fishing or riding horses, there’s no better place to kick back before dinner. Just off the main great room is an inviting bar, as well as a game room, both with breathtaking views of the valley.
The Ranch Cabins. This is where you will be staying during your dude ranch vacation. The rooms in our various lodges on the ranch property are spacious and inviting. There are large porches for morning coffee and evening aperitifs, while enjoying the scenery.
