With its own large herd of resident bison, this luxurious 550,000-acre ranch is owned by media mogul Ted Turner. Though primarily a shooting and fishing destination, family-friendly activities include horseback riding, wildlife safari tours, cooking classes, mountain biking and hiking. The best of the 20 lodgings are in the historic stone-faced Casa Grande mansion, which includes several sitting areas and sunrooms, a plant-filled atrium, a billiards room and an imposing living room with a grand piano, Victorian furnishings and a domed coffered ceiling. The rustic dining room in the main lodge offers an extensive breakfast buffet, while outstanding lunch and dinner menus highlight ingredients sourced on-site such as trout fillets and bison steaks. The well-organized excursions are led by exceptionally knowledgeable guides.
