Meetings & Retreats

Inspire your team with a stay at Zapata Ranch.

As an all-inclusive lodge, nestled into one of the quietest and most serene corners of the Rocky Mountains, the Zapata Ranch encourages focus, contemplation, and connection from our guests. From our array of exciting activities to our elegant accommodations, we will ensure that your group is well provided for. We welcome innovative, forward-thinking businesses and groups from non-profits, the arts, and sustainability.

Immersive Group Experiences

Our 15-room lodge is the perfect place to host a private experience for your group. We create personalized itineraries that allow your team to experience an authentic ranch while accomplishing your business development goals. Experience team building by learning horsemanship techniques, riding across our 103,000 acre ranch, exploring the Great Sand Dunes National Park on horseback, and working together to move cattle across our pastures. Participate in on-ranch activities such as roping lessons, learning horse psychology on foot in the round pen, leather making, and guided hikes. Other possible off-ranch activities for your group include whitewater rafting, rock climbing, hiking in the nearby mountains, fly fishing, and more. 

Private Group Dining

Our dining experience is interactive and educational. Enjoy a night of wine tasting and food pairings from Albuquerque’s organic sustainable vineyard— Sheehan Winery. Learn about our grass fed beef and bison, the local organic farms we source our vegetables from, and explore our very own garden next to the lodge. Take outdoor, over-the-fire cooking classes with our head chef and learn how we utilize resources from the ranch in our meals. Your group will walk away inspired to take what they learned back into their homes!
