First Class Dude Ranch for Families

"Beautiful place. Food, accommodations, activities, friendly staff... etc etc. Just an overall really great experience in the outdoors. Very fun. Different every day. Did not miss TV one bit (shockingly). Horses were great for any skill level - we were all novices. Our cabin was very clean and nice. Well worth the expense; just splurge you will be glad you did."

Perfect Adventure for Senior Rider

"Never, ever have I had so much fun and adventure packed into one week. I visited the ranch during "adult week" and not only rode to my heart's content, I also learned to fly-fish, throw a lasso, roundup cattle, and went white-water rafting for the first time. Pretty good for 70++! Their horses are first class trail horses and very well cared for. The food is gourmet every meal. The setting of the ranch is exquisite, high in the Rockies (we received lots of instruction about coping with the altitude). The staff is enthusiastic and very caring, and, all in all, I'd give it a "10" if I could."

Beyond Words!

"I will try and explain how awesome our stay was, but you’ll have to visit yourself to truly understand! This is not just some resort that is pretending to be a Ranch. This is a family run Ranch that integrates you into their family. I’ve never been anywhere like this where the sense of community and truly being a part of the operation starts from the first minute you arrive. Your own horse for the week, perfectly matched to your ability; every opportunity to improve your horsemanship, rope, camp out, tack your own horse or let the Ranch’s wrangler that is personally assigned to you to do all the work, if you want. We enjoyed being a part of the Ranch. And after 4 to 6 hours in the saddle, you are served amazing meals 3 times a day and your cabin is a home away from home - comfortable beds, hot showers...just the perfect Ranch cabin appointed like a luxury resort."
