My brother, mother, and I went to the ranch for four days, Sunday through Wednesday, but I wish we would've stayed the whole week! All of the people on the ranch were wonderful and so caring; everyone there wanted to ensure that we got the full experience and completely enjoyed our trip. From horseback riding, to bass fishing, to trap... More

I didn't stay at the dude ranch but I did go horseback riding there. Something I haven't done in years. There was a total of 4 of us including our wrangler who was so kind and friendly. They provide boots and hats just in case you are not equipped. One of the ladies in our group was married there a... More

Sylvan Dale offers all kinds of cabins and food and adventure plans. We stayed in the Tommy Cabin with breakfast while visiting nearby family. Several times our 9 year old daughters rode and loved it. We invited our family to dinner in the lodge and we found ourselves enchanted by the intimate meal and music on the porch. We swam... More

We took a family vacation to Sylvan Dale, initially to get our daughter acclimated to the area before starting school at CSU. Not only was she acclimated, she was adopted! She now has an entire family to look after her. The owners of this beautiful ranch take great pride in their home, their family and their heritage. Staff members are... More

We stayed at Sylvan Dale for a family reunion that included about 30 guests, ages 9 to 80. There was plenty for everyone to do, the food and rooms were great, and the staff was outstanding.

We had such an amazing experience at the Sylvan Dale Ranch - from start to finish. It was truly a unique trip. The kids were asking when we could return before we even left.
