I ride, and He fishes. I had the best riding experience I have ever had - and that under-rates it, and Himself the best fishing with superb coaching and his very first brown trout. Add to the mix wonderfully comfortable accommodation, superb food, and the most amazing scenery and lovely people - if you ride, or fish, or trek, go...

The staff are first class whether your interest is riding or fishing. Julie, my wife, was found a suitable horse to match her abilities and experienced some wonderful trail rides. Trout fishing for me...

My wife and I had the time of our life. The owners Doug and Linda, Jane and David remembered our names from the first day. Their hospitality was also instilled in the people that worked there. EVERYONE was so accommodating and helpful. My only wish was that they would have had a king size bed to sleep on. I found...

Any great organization starts from the top and you can't find any more stellar people than Doug and Linda . From the moment of our arrival we were greeted with kindness and warmth from Linda. The cabins are well appointed rustic and comfortable. With a great fireplace. Horseback riding - supervalous. All the horses were well trained and cared for...

It's a dude ranch that concentrates on the riding programme. Not the fine dining and fine wines type of place. The mountains are sensational, of course, pretty much like all of the Rockies, I suppose. The Van Berkum family and the staff make everyone feel like family, and the social side of being there is great. Generally there are 2...

My wife and I celebrated our 30th Anniversary at the Rainbow Trout Ranch. We were so impressed with the beauty of the Ranch, lodge, and our rustic cabin. Ownership has successfully created a family environment, which you instantly become a part of, when you cross the door threshold. We are novice riders, and I'm a rookie fly fisherman. Jennifer rode...

Rainbow Trout Ranch is a southern Colorado hidden treasure. The moment you arrive you are treated like family. Great food, great service, excellent horseback riding and trout fishing. You have a log cabin to yourselves which is rustic but yet homey. Walk outside at night and stare at the millions of stars in the sky with the milkyway band. Go...

No doubt about it, this was our best holiday EVER! The Van Berkham's have sprinkled some sort of magic over this ranch. Our horses were all perfectly selected for us, matching our riding ability and size. The country is beautiful to ride in. All the young staff were delightful and helpful. There was more fresh, family friendly food than you...

My husband and I wanted to take each of our grandchildren on a special trip. This was our first one and we decided to go to a dude ranch. After some research we picked Rainbow Trout Ranch. We were not disappointed. The ranch was authentic west, beautiful, 100 year old main lodge surrounded by small well appointed guest cabins. The...

We have just returned from our second trip to Rainbow Trout Ranch. Most guests have been going many years longer than us which speaks for itself!
