Private Colorado Ranch

Say howdy to the holidays at a cozy ranch in Colorado. This is a Rocky Mountain wilderness experience that amps up the luxury. Picture this: 10,000 acres of pure nature and pristine trails for you to explore. Bring the whole gang because there’s plenty of space for up to 20 guests with 11 rooms and nine bathrooms. This home embraces a cabin-chic design with views of the snow-dusted landscape. Your kids will keep their eyes fixed to the starry sky in hopes of spotting Santa’s sleigh. A private chef takes care of your meals, leaving you to kick back and relax in front of a crackling fire. Beyond the ranch, Colorado’s winter wonderland awaits. Go with a private guide and experience snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and skiing at nearby Steamboat Springs. Contact us to create a family Christmas to remember in Colorado >>

Estate in Scotland

Our experts recently visited Glenfeshie Estate within the spectacular Cairngorms National Park and they were eager to let you in on this tucked-away Scottish secret. Your kids will revel in the vast stretch of ancient Caledonian woodlands, sparkling rivers, and moody lochs, all embraced by mountains. In this part of Great Britain, your companions will be soaring golden eagles, prowling wildcats, and foraging red squirrels. You will be supporting habitat conservation with a stay at Glenfeshie Estate. Restoration of peatlands, wetlands, rivers, and woods are all in the works. Reach this hidden estate, dating back to 1880, on a single track road winding its way through pine forests.

The best way to see Scotland is on one of our handcrafted journeys. Our experts can customize a trip that fits perfectly with your family Christmas plans. Take inspiration from our Luxury England & Scotland itinerary, leading you to the lochs, rich history, and whisky tastings.
