You could wait until the cows come home to take some time off, or you could bite the bullet and book this week's Escape to Cherry Creek Lodge, nestled deep within the Tonto National Forest, the country's fifth largest, in Young, Arizona.

Saddle up for a two-night adventure for two at this working cattle ranch, which includes your accommodations, a daily gourmet breakfast for two, and a bottle of Merlot ($189).

Pour a glass of wine and envision yourself back in the Old West as you unravel the 50,000-acre ranch's fascinating history, filled with so many dramatic twists and turns it could've been a movie, and indeed, it's already been the basis of a few books. You'll learn about the vendetta of two families sparked by one or all of the following: cattle rustling, big corporations pushing little-guy ranchers out, and as in every good Western, some good old-fashioned gunfightin' over women.

Once you've set the scene for your stay with a little history lesson, put your spurs on and get ready to take in the Arizona wilderness. There are miles of hiking trails through the forest and open grasslands, and the Lodge offers horseback riding for beginners and experts alike, including guided and unguided trail rides, clinics, and lessons.

Those hungry to get their hands dirty like real cowboys can participate in full- or half-day roundups and cattle drives. Those looking to learn even more can accompany ranch hands as they tend to day-to-day business like riding the fence lines, driving cattle between pastures, branding, and more.

And for little doggies looking to stay closer to home, you can step outside the lodge door and find fishin', archery, and clay shootin'.

Live free and ride hard with this week's Escape to Cherry Creek Lodge.

  • "The setting was beautiful with rolling hills and valleys covered in a blanket of pine trees. The property has both historic farm buildings, a pond, a river, and a fancy lodge. Everything was clean and well kept."
