On Site Activities


Explore the outdoors, relax and unwind, or learn something new, all without ever leaving Cougar Ridge.

We offer a variety of on-site activities to choose from during your stay.

The Fitness Facility, Bowling Alley, and Horseshoes are only available to guests that are renting out The Lodge.

Grill it yourself

Traveling is great, but eating out every night isn’t always ideal. Our “grill your own” service lets you choose from a variety of meats, salads, sides, and desserts, delivered right to your Casita on your chosen day. When you’re ready, toss your meat on the grill, grab a cold drink, and enjoy the view from your deck while enjoying your tasty, home-cooked meal.

Spa Treatments

Book a relaxing massage or other spa treatment right in your own Casita or the Lodge. Call ahead to book your session prior to your arrival.

  • $90-50 minutes
  • $130-80 minutes
Fitness Facility

Guests renting the Lodge will enjoy access to our full gym, which features 2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals, 1 Concept 2 rower, as well as a squat rack with a pull-up bar, benches, a barbell with plates, and a weight tower. After your workout, relax and sweat it out in the sauna or steam room.


You don’t have to go far to experience the wild west. In fact, we can bring it straight to you! Call ahead to book your own private rodeo. Watch as local cowboys show off their skills, and then get down and personal with them and their horses after the show is over. You can even add a BBQ to make it a memorable afternoon or evening.

  • $1,000 for the rodeo
