The 4UR Ranch in Creede has been around since the late 1870s; well known for its hot springs and the excellent fly fishing found at this beautiful mountain ranch. Rich in history, it has been listed on the National Register for Historic Places, an honor we are most proud of. While our history may be deep, we are always innovating and implementing new, exciting and unique ideas to offer our guests the most memorable vacation experience. One of the most important parts of that experience is food.
Every guest we see each summer steps into the dining room several times a day to refresh, refuel and immerse themselves in the culinary journey our kitchen staff has prepared that day. Our executive chef, Blake Bond, is looking for members to join his team in providing the best dining experience possible.
The menus at the 4UR rotate daily throughout the week and provide both the guests and the kitchen staff an exciting experience. Since freshness is pivotal, the menu and the items on it will change as the summer shift into August and then early fall. Inside the dining room, sample dinner menu items are as follows:
-Rare Seared Ahi Tuna with bok choy, pickled vegetables, chile, miso-ginger vinaigrette.
-Roasted Chicken with farro, castelvetrano olives, capers, zucchini, pan jus.
-Espresso Rubbed Tenderloin of Beef with buttermilk potato puree, roasted broccolini, espresso demi.
Further, there are unique dining days where, for example, guests will ride several miles up the Goose Creek valley to a clearing. There they will hitch horses and enjoy wine, cheese and hors d'oeuvres in a large pavilion as the sunsets. Once dinner is ready, guests will meet Chef Blake by the grill where he has prepared ribeyes, and salmon complimented by sides ranging from a quinoa salad, roasted Brussel sprouts, garlic dill potatoes, sauteed asparagus and much more.

Outside the ranch, the town of Creede is just 12 miles away. It’s filled with history, charm, and nostalgia. There’s no shortage of fun, especially during the summer. The town has a wide array of shops and boutiques as well as the highly regarded Stephen Quiller gallery. Outside of Creede, there are several music festivals that happen in nearby towns of Pagosa Springs and South Fork. The Great Sand Dunes National Park is just over an hour away. There’s also plenty of trails, mountains, and lakes to hike around the area. Furthermore, Colorado’s oldest pro rodeo occurs in the nearby town of Monte Vista.
