My mother and I visited MacGregor Ranch museum to visit one afternoon shortly after my father passed away. We went to the gift shop and the wonderful sweet and kind woman working told us we could walk the property since we missed the tour but we could just not go inside the historic home, which we were fine with. So about 15 minutes into my mom and I walking around the ranch, we heard an old cowboy whistling and yelling all the way across the ranch at us to come back. Needless to say we were not sure he was talking to us, we were not sure what was going on and it was incredibly embarrassing for my mom and I. We walked back towards the gift shop and he just frowned at us and didn't say a word. It was incredibly embarrassing and to this day I'm not sure what we did wrong. The woman in the gift shop had to come out and apologize to us and explained she had told the old cowboy we were fine doing what we were doing but apparently he had his own agenda and we were not in it. Needless to say we did not feel welcomed by the old cowboy at all in fact I will not be visiting this Ranch again. Huge bummer considering I'm very involved with local history and on numerous committees!! Honestly my mom and I were walking holding hands having a moment talking about my father, and I question if the old cowboy thought it was two women in a relationship and he didn't like what he saw. That would explain why he had nothing to say to us when we returned upon his rude request of whistling and yelling across at us to return.

This is still a working ranch with lots of history of the Estes Park area. Our docent was very knowledgeable and took lots of time to explain the unique history of the area. Really enjoyed it!

This place is truly a hidden gem. First of all, don’t follow your GPS. It is wrong. Call for directions, or look it up. This ranch is one of the finest examples of an early homestead ranch anywhere in Colorado. It features stunning views, a wonderful main house that you can take a tour of, and numerous outbuildings , as well as a large garden and beautiful hay meadow. Jenny, our tour guide, was the best. She gave us lots of information about both the house and it’s occupants. This is a wonderful place to visit if you are in Estes Park.

Great History about Colorado, Estes Park, and The McGregor family. Goes hand in hand with the Stanley hotel and Elkhorn Lodge. Staff was very nice. Kids are free as it’s an educational facility. Only criticism would be to streamline the talking points as it loses young children quickly.
