My wife and I had a great week at Colorado Trails Ranch. The accommodations were very nice. The room was very comfortable and clean and they left us snacks and new Keurig coffee everyday. All of the staff were very friendly and really made our stay enjoyable. The horseback riding was really fun. The Wranglers were all very knowledgeable and...

In a word this place is amazing. From the horses to the employees to the food to the rooms. I can't say one bad thing about the ranch or our experience there. FOOD: Our son has severe food allergies (dairy, egg and nut). We have never let anyone else do the cooking for him. After talking to Jeanne, the ranch...

What an awesome dude ranch experience. Our family didn't know what to expect, but there was something for everyone. Kids program is great...tremendous focus on safety but kids felt free to explore and had a blast. Great fly fishing and of course horseback riding. The staff was professional and accommodate. We're going back and would recommend to anyone looking for...

My Wife and I went to Colorado Trails with our daughter, daughter-in-law, son and grand daughter. This was our first trip to a Guest Ranch. This was as good a family vacation as we have ever had and thats a fair number of nice trips. Everything about the Ranch is spectacular. Jeanne, the manager is very organized and very accommodating....

I cannot begin to tell you how awesome this ranch is. The staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. They took the time to get to know us, make us laugh, and help make memories that we will never forget. The range of activities is right on, allowing you to do something new and different...

This is our third visit to the ranch, and to use an old cliché, like wine, it just gets better and better. This year we stayed in the new cabins. They are extremely well presented, with expert attention to detail and finish. Great Beds (you will crash out guaranteed at the end of each day of full activity) and with...

Another year, another return trip to CTR and another mind blowing experience. After a 10 hour flight from London and an 8 hour drive from Denver, the sight of the red CTR barn was welcoming indeed! Jeanne and the team make you feel so welcome, that for us as return visitors, it was as if we had never left. This...

Pure fun! A week at Colorado Trails Ranch in the beautiful San Juan Mountains is the setting for a fabulous family vacation. For several summers my husband and I have traveled to CTR for the horseback riding and Art Week, so we were thrilled when our four rambunctious grandchildren were finally old enough to participate in the activities. We are...

We just returned from our 5th visit to Colorado Trails, and this year was better than ever. There have been many improvements since last year and all of them were wonderful. Jeannie and her staff have to be the most accommodating hosts ever. They are the most "can do" bunch around. As always the food was excellent, the staff was...

The quickest and easiest way to do justice to Colorado Trails Ranch is to say that absolutely everything is wonderful. The activities, location, food (definitely the food), staff, facilities and especially Jeannie who is lovely person doing an amazing job.
