Summertime Travel: Hidden Meadow Ranch
At some point in one's life I think most of us get the urge to experience a piece of the American West with a vacation centered in an upscale cowboy resort. Look no further than the White Mountains of Arizona at Hidden Meadow Ranch where luxury isn't left behind but the hubbub of urban life is. Unique packages beginning this month lure you into the rustic surroundings at an 8,500 feet such as:
- 'Indulge Your Senses' Package: In the month of May guests can enjoy a package for two including private cabin accommodations, three gourmet meals daily, all non-alcoholic beverages and ranch activities such as fishing, horseback riding, hiking, archery and more. Additional sensory-packed amenities will treat guests to guided wildflower and wildlife hikes through the national forest, a complimentary CD filled with soothing mountain sounds, a specially prepared menu of light and fresh dinner fare, a gift basket brimming with spa essentials, and two complimentary one-hour in-cabin massages. (Priced at $550/night)
