So every February about this time our staff ladies pull out every sponge, broom, mop, and even toothbrush to get our cabins back to our 4 diamond standard. The ranch closes after Thanksgiving and our opening day this year is Feb 17th. I am not able to participate like I use to (each baby I have makes that a little bit more difficult) but I am confident to say that it is one of the hardest jobs and rewarding jobs all at the same time. The motto of spring cleaning is "NOTHING in our cabins goes untouched" and so everything from behind the couch to every square inch of the ceiling, our faithful cabin girls clean it. These girls are truly my heroes on the ranch! Our cabin girls are the "invisible busy bees". One of my favorite parts of staying in a hotel is the fact that I am not responsible for cleaning it. These are the girls that actually make that possible here at the ranch. They make sure that every bed is made perfectly, every toilet is clean, and are always looking for any way to make our guests feel more at home. I am always reminding our cabin girls that they are learning life skills...they are learning to be servants, learning the meaning of hard work, and are learning to do it without much glory. They are the girls that my little girl is all ready emulating and I love that she does. I thought you might want to see what goes into getting our cabins up and running and meet our cute staff ladies that make this happen. Thank you girls for working so hard, but most of all thank you for having such a good time doing it! You are my heroes!
I am a ranch girl now fulfilling my life long city girl fantasy at Lost Valley Ranch. I married my "Real Cowboy" and now are raising our three dear children in the middle of the Rockies of Colorado doing this thing called "guest ranching". It is quite an adventure!
