This is the second summer we visited Clear Creek -- three branches of our family, three generations and ten people in all. Last summer the ranch had undergone a big change in management and was still finding its footing. And this summer was terrific in just about every respect. Marci and Jackie, who manage it, bent over backwards to assist...

My family of five, along with my brother and his family, and our parents, enjoyed our second week-long trip to Clear Creek at the end of June/start of July. We are already talking about returning next summer. I am able to relax at CCR as I am not able to anywhere else. The physical environment is conducive to this (mountains,...

I had a great time. I was forced to slow down and simply enjoy what was right in front of me. I was nervous about riding a horse but the wranglers were all kind, compassionate and very helpful. They answered any question I had and did their best to make me feel comfortable. The scenery is overwhelmingly beautiful and serene....

We stayed at CCR for a week and are planning on coming back ASAP! Our horses were so sweet and the Wranglers make sure you're comfortable and enjoying the ride. There's so many trails and they're all gorgeous! You get to ride twice a day, and we even went on a long ride and had lunch by the river! The...

We took our 6 yr old daughter and 11 yr old son for a week after hearing about this place from my chiropractor who raved about how much his family loved the place. He said it would be the best vacation we would ever take. Well, we have been on countless cruises to places like the Mexican Riviera and through...

Staff and guests are encouraged to interact, the rooms are comfortable and clean. You don't feel like a number. The Wranglers are great with adults and children. Horses are healthy and a swim after the morning or evening ride is delicious. Bring your fishing rod. Can't say enough wonderful comments about this place.

“You can stay up by the lodge, or in the lower cabins, a short but steep walk. Back rooms are secluded and look down on a stream.”
