Our first Dude Ranch and what an experience! This is a fabulous, supremely well run family affair set in glorious surroundings. The staff are efficient, friendly and fun, the food is very good and the horses are amazing. Under a canopy of blue we set off on numerous rides across meadows, through rivers climbing to the Aspen forests which with...

RTR is family owned and it shows. Doug & Linda and David & Jane (and their children) provide wonderful Iowa roots hospitality and treat you like family. The scenery is spectacular, especially while relaxing on the porch or out horseback riding. The lodge and cabins are immaculately spotless and every detail has been well thought out. There is no internet,...

My family has been going now for 19 years! We have been to several ranches as well over the years and none of them come close to the activities at Rainbow Trout Ranch. The riding program is fantastic. Lodging, food, staff, and the owners are all wonderful. I have been fly fishing for over 30 years and have fished in...

We have been to many ranches but this is the one that we would keep going back to! The hospitality of the hosts and staff was superior! The accommodations were modest but clean and comfortable and very appropriate to the ranch atmosphere. The food was outstanding as well as the service and accommodation of special requests. Horses were of good...

Four of us stayed 3 days at this lovely place. We loved the friendliness of the owners and staff, the setting, the cabins, the meals, the hikes, and the horses. Being September, we were there at the end of the season, but our horses were fresh and sound, responsive, and looked great. The scenery is wonderful. They showed us a...

We went again - can't help ourselves. Great outdoors Rocky Mountain scenes, hugely friendly people, good horses. Huge fun. Trotting, loping, moseying, equal to the best trail riding we have ever done. A week is good. 2 weeks is better. It's a fair trip to get there, but worth it. Really a big trip for us, because we came from...

If you are looking for a GREAT dude ranch, RTR is your place. Let me start off with the owners, as soon as you arrive you become part of their family, and the staff is wonderful, TIP great, they are worth it. The food is home made and you will not be hungry at the end of the day, it...

We have never visited a guest ranch and after reading so many excellent reviews, we just had to book at RTR. We just returned from 4 nights this September and our only regret... we didn't stay a full week. I can see how so many people come back here every season- it truly becomes your home away from home.

We just returned from our vacation/honeymoon at the Rainbow Trout Ranch. It was absolutely a first rate experience. The owners (three generations on hand) make you feel at home. The staff are all such wonderful people you would give any one of them a key to your home as they traveled through your city. The riding was well taught, safe,...
