Home on the Range


City folk can get a taste of the country life at the Marriott Ranch in Hume, Va., a one-hour drive west of Washington, D.C. Ronald Reagan rode horseback here, a matter of local pride.

For groups, the 4,200-acre site (purchased by Marriott’s founder in 1951) hosts roping events, barrel races and orienteering courses. “We’re small, but we get creative,” says general manager Lanier Cate.
