RULES AND REGULATIONS OF MILE HIGH RANCH
For your own safety and to ensure you enjoy your stay, please comply with the following rules:
1. RANCH ACCESS
1.1. In order to preserve the tranquil atmosphere, please note that the following items are not allowed:
Illegal and dangerous substances, dangerous items (in particular any offensive or defensive weapons of any category) and any type of object or toy resembling a firearm (such as a laser gun, etc.) that may endanger the safety of visitors.
Any items that may disturb the peace of visitors (such as vuvuzelas, megaphones or horns).
Recreational items, such as drones or any other remote-controlled or radio-controlled toy.
Any item that Hosts deems inappropriate or disturbing.
1.2. Minors: minors under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. Whatever their age, minors are the responsibility of their parents or legal guardians, who are subsequently responsible for any damage they may cause.
1.3. Animals: pets are welcome to stay with you during your visit. They must be kept on a lead and remain under the control of their owners, and please be sure to “pick up” after your pets. Please see Pet Policy for additional details.
1.4. Check-in: Guest Rooms are available beginning at 3pm. Guests may check-in at the Ranch Office when you arrive, or online in advance.
1.5. Check-out: Guest Rooms must be vacated by 11am on the day of departure. You may remain until 1pm, for an additional $20, if it does not conflict with other incoming reservations. Departure after 1pm is considered another day's stay.
1.6. Cancellation Policy: Because we are a small family-run business, cancellations significantly affect us. A $35 cancellation fee applies to all cancellations made more than 14 days before your arrival date. If you need to cancel, please reach us directly by phone, not email, at least 14 days before your arrival date to avoid extra charges. CANCELLATIONS MADE LESS THAN 14 DAYS BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL DATE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE RESERVATION UNLESS WE ARE ABLE TO REBOOK. If a guest does not arrive and honor their reservation, or contacts us directly to cancel, they will be responsible for the full amount of the stay. For bookings made through a 3rd party site (e.g. Hotels.com, Booking.com, Expedia.com, etc.), check the cancellation policy with them for details.
1.7. Visitors: Your visitors are always welcome at Mile High Ranch, provided they register at our main office when they first arrive. Registered guests and their visitors are expected to read and adhere to all resort guidelines. All visitors must leave ranch by 10pm.
1.8. Reservations: Guests must vacate their guest room at the end of their stay, on the date and time set forth in their reservation confirmation.
1.9. Recordings: We may photograph, film, videotape, record, or otherwise reproduce the image and/or voice of any person who enters the Mile High Ranch, and use the same for any purpose without payment to any person.
1.10. Entry to Guest Rooms: We reserve the right to enter any suite or studio for maintenance, safety, or security at any time, even if the guest is not present.
1.11. Housekeeping Service: Prior to your arrival your room will undergo comprehensive cleaning with added attention to high touch areas and floors. For extended stays of a week or more, your room will receive light housekeeping service once a week (unless you choose to decline the service). This service will include removal of trash and used towels, replenishment of amenities, cleaning the vanity and floors.
2. HEALTH AND SAFETY

Public Behavior: Theft, public order offenses, verbal and physical violence, insults, fraud, drunkenness, indecency, malice, failure to comply with safety instructions and regulations, racism, etc. may cause Hosts to intervene and take necessary measures, whether notifying the police, making a formal complaint, or escorting the visitor off the property without any compensation, reimbursement, or other recourse.
In addition, Mile High Ranch reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to prohibit the access or cancel the stay of any person whose behavior may harm their own safety, those of other visitors, or the security of the premises.
We ask that you respect the cleanliness of the ranch and facilities provided for your pleasure and comfort.
