We stayed with a church group on a ski vacation. It's a bit far from the ski area-45 minute drive, but it's worth it! The food is Deliscious. The dinner bell rung for us at 6pm and breakfast at 7:30am and believe me no one was late for a meal. The rooms are rustic with no tv, but it's very...

We visited Waunita Hot Springs this past weekend (February) with about 30 people on a Colorado Mountain Club trip. Great breakfasts and dinners were included, served cafeteria style. The hot springs are great. No sulfur smell. The pool was comfortably warm and the natural hot tub was perfectly hot for soaking. Beautiful scenery and great cross country skiing and snow...

The slogan at Waunita - "The Best Week of Your Year" - is apt. But for us it wasn't merely the best week of our year. It was truly one of the best weeks we have ever spent together as a family. The food was great, the staff was patient and professional, the views were delightful and the family-friendly environment...

This is the real deal, authentic experience with real Cowboys. We did the supper and show both were great! Do not miss this when in Gunnison. We met the owners and the shared their experiences starting the ranch with stories and pictures. This is a family run ranch!

We rented out this beautiful ranch for our daughter's September wedding, and we simply could not have been happier!! The setting was perfect- the beautiful big lawn was perfect for an outdoor ceremony with plenty of room for a big tent for the reception! The fall color was amazing, and the number of beautiful places for photos was extraordinary! The...

We stayed for just one night here using it as a BnB with evening meal. Basic honest to goodness accommodation, not quite up to modern standards for the price. Comfy bed, quiet room and very friendly family run atmosphere. Evening meal was a grab it if you can buffet with just two options. No alcohol served and no one else...

Thank you for you recent stay. Depending on the time of the year our alcohol policy can be a bit confusing. We are defiantly a family atmosphere ranch in the summer. We do allow beer or wine at meal time, or in your room, BYOB, just a few of our guests will include this. It just isn't the focus of...

We cannot wait to go back! Very peaceful & beautiful! The Pringle family make it like visiting home! The horses, the trails, the food, the warm pool, white water rafting! We love this place!

Had the best time with my wife enjoying the horseback riding, swimming, rafting the river,cookouts, the great food, and the hospitable staff and other families that were guests. Nothing to do but enjoy the beautiful outdoors and relax. Flowers have never been so beautiful. Best time i've had all year; waaaay good!

Waunita Hot Springs Ranch was one of the best vacations I've ever been on. I wanted to take my daughter on a trip that was something different, and one of the things on my bucket list was a dude ranch. It's a family owned business, and the Pringles indeed make you feel just like family. The staff is amazing. The...

All of it!! The place The people The pool The food The fun The fellowship. Amazing place. My favorite is that when my daughter and I visit I no longer feel the responsibilities of single parenting. It is all taken care of and I don't have to plan a thing! Lovely!
