Morning greets you at Wit’s
End Guest Ranch, Resort and Spa as the sun rises above the 13,000-foot,
snow-capped peaks of the San Juan National Forest. You’ve
slept well in a lovingly restored historic cabin and your spirit
soars in the thin, crisp mountain air. Later today you will be
hiking in the Weminuche Wilderness; horseback riding up to Middle
Mountain for lunch; fly fishing in a crystal clear, fast running
mountain stream or you may choose to send the family off on adventure
while you relax on the porch swing reading a book before heading
off to your custom spa treatment.
At Wit’s End you make your plans and your own experience. Each
family member may indulge their personal passions or your may play
together. The choice is yours. Wit’s End is very much a family
treasure lovingly shared with the guests. Owners Jim and Karen Custer
play host to many families that return to year after year indulging
passions such as fly fishing, camping in the national forest or riding
horses all day, every day.
Meals at the ranch are truly amazing. Executive chef Greg Straub’s
unbridled passion for people and food, result in a experience which
is natural and unfussy, yet artistic, healthy and delicious. Lean
game meats such as elk, venison and buffalo unite with chanterelles,
boletus, porcini mushrooms and regional produce creating meals bursting
with flavor. Low carb and vegetarian devotees are brilliantly accommodated.
Even the hay ride BBQ with traditional cowboy beans quietly showcases
Greg’s enthusiasm for healthful alternatives.
Spa director Leslie McGownd has created numerous treatments to heal,
energize and pamper. We were intrigued by the new “As Above,
So Below” treatment. Floating back to our cabin we knew we
had made an excellent choice. Other signature indulgences are available
or custom treatments can be created.
Wit’s End offers a weekly American plan which includes activities,
lodging, meals, spa and fitness facilities and even a massage. Some
extended wilderness trips and many of the spa treatments are extra
cost options. Wit’s End is an Orvis endorsed fly fishing lodge.
