I just finished booking what will be our 7th summer at Wind River Ranch. We start planning our annual trip to the ranch the day we get home! The staff are wonderful and the cabins are great. Their chef is amazing - I have never eaten that well at sea level - let alone 9,000 feet! Don, Nick, and Rob...

Our family has vacationed at Wind River Ranch the last two summers and it was amazing! We are former dude ranch managers and Wind River Ranch is truly a special place. We probably have a more critical eye than the average guest and we feel Wind River Ranch is a top-notch ranch with a top-notch program. Both years, we experienced...

Exquisite service; incredible vistas; pampered; great food. But don't come for all of those. Come for the peace that will settle into the depths of your soul. Burn-out is how almost all of us live all the time. Then the REAL stress times come: divorce; death of a close family member or friend; that over-the-top project we had to deliver;...

We took a family vacation at the Wind River Dude Ranch and had a wonderful time. The location was breathtaking and it helped us take a step back from the rat race of life. The staff loved to serve and I have never seen such a hard working group. They worked so hard but did it with a smile and...

This trip was so wonderful for my 15-yr old son and myself. From the moment we set foot on the ranch to the waves goodbye, we felt at home and part of a family. The staff were helpful and friendly and ready to do anything needed. The ranch has a balance of fun things to do with family or great...

This is an awesome Christian retreat for couples and families. The staff are wonderful, food is excellent (we ganied weight in a week!), plenty of time with the horses and well-qulaified cowboy/cowgirl wranglers who are especiialy good at helping new riders. Pool and hot tub look out at 14,000 foot Longs Peak. Estes Park is a fun town only 15...

What a great place - the view, the staff, the facilities, the food. And it is a great place for rest and rejuvenation in a Christian environment.

First time at the Wind River Ranch in July 2011. Great wranglers and staff who are aligned to serve the Lord in all they do. Our daughter woke up early each day to groom the horses with the wranglers before breakfast. Truly enjoyed the Bible Study each morning on the veranda with long's Peak in the background. We highly recommend...

My family just spent a week at Wind River Ranch. This was our fifth trip. No place else has ever made us feel like we have just glimpsed what heaven will be like with so much fun, wonder and people caring for each other.

Excellent staff. Solid Horse program. High quality meals. Many options: hiking, fly fishing, white water rafting, reading a book in a hammock in an Aspen grove...all in a family friendly, Christian environment.
