Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2017

We were with a group of adult women of various ages. The staff went out of their way to make us feel as if the whole place was there JUST for us. The accommodations varied but all were comfortable and had their special good points. The food was always top notch and housekeeping was thorough. The horses are obviously well tended to and matched up to us perfectly. The area is amazing! Even if you have seen the mountains of Colorado, seeing them on horseback is a whole different view.

Room Tip: Love the little cottages by the river simply for the view from the porch.

I attended the Spring Cowgirl Roundup with my sister and 2 others. We couldn't have had a better time. The other guests were friendly and welcoming. The setting is gorgeous. The food was awesome and plentiful. The horses are well-trained. The staff is responsive and attentive. The riding experience was perfect. My horse was a good match for me and the pace was always matched to the riders. Bonus: I caught a big fish! Take the plunge. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Just talk to the staff.

Absolutely awesome! I went solo and met some of the most amazing women as fellow guests. The staff, wranglers, horses, food, accommodations... everything was 5 Star. I'm not that experienced of a rider, but my level was welcomed by everyone and I never felt like I held anyone back on our rides. From the basic trail rides to the early morning breakfast ride to the overnight camp, it was all very special. I'm still reflecting back on the events of the week! Thank you, Sylvan Dale, for one of the best vacations I've ever had (and I've been to some nice places).

Beautiful horses and a happy staff. This ride was a birthday present and it was exciting and memorable. You are fitted with a horse to your stature and experience.
Once saddled up, you are guided on a group ride through the rocky front range vistas. Protip: sweet country clothes in the gift shop for the little ones.

Stayed: September 2016, travelled as a couple
