We are Dean and Jodi Rusk
Your hosts for Spectacular Colorado Mountain Weddings, Fun Family Reunions
or Special Events!

Dean and Jodi
with the ranch dogs
Ahnik and Sadie

The ranch ran as a full service guest/dude ranch from 1985 to 2010.  Travelers from
around the world were delighted with our welcoming western atmosphere, outstanding
scenery and comprehensive trail riding programs.

Now that we are retired from the guest ranch business we still have the urge to share this
beautiful location with travelers from near or far.

We strive to maintain a simple and uncomplicated atmosphere here at the Pines Ranch
because we believe in providing you with the best experience possible during your stay!

Our ranch brand H/H stands for “home away from home”

We are excited to welcome you home and we look forward to hosting your Wedding,
Special Event or Family Reunion!!  
Dean grew up just down
the road from the Pines
Ranch and purchased the
property in 1984 with
the intent of sharing this
amazing place with as
many people as
Jodi grew up on a
small ranch in eastern
Colorado. Riding
horses and visiting the
mountains was a way
of life.  She loves
working with people
and has found her true
home here at the Pines!
