What a fantastic place to have Father's Day dinner. The view is great and the meal is fantastic! The Taylor River is almost at our table. I've never seen it so high. It's actually over the banks in places & the rocks you normally see are under water.

After a lovely morning horseback riding, pony rides and visiting the petting zoo with another family we walked across to eat our packed lunch in the green area at Harmel's. The kids enjoyed playing while we ate until a staff member came out yelling at my children, yelling at me and then threw a water bottle at us and told... More

Harmels has a great lunch buffet option of you are as hungry as I am sometimes. You can also order off the menu if a buffet isn't your style. It doesn't get much better than eating lunch sitting next to the Taylor river

What a great trip for a group of friends and family. We reserved 5 cabins for 3 nights in Almont at Harmel's Ranch Resort. We had kids, dogs and adults who love to fish, everyone enjoyed the accommodations, breakfast at the lodge, horseback riding. We had a campfire at night, roasted marshmallows, and stayed up late to enjoy every moment.... More

Traveling with 15 family members, we were trying to find a place that would be fun for different ages and activity levels. Harmel's is just that place! (Age range 14-80) Some fished and rode horses, a few went mountain biking and zip lining in nearby Crested Butte, we all went whitewater rafting and on a family wilderness horseback ride. Having...

Where to begin, we had our wedding reception at Harmel's Ranch. I am writing this 6 months after the fact but I still get compliments on the reception so I knew I needed to finally get up a review, spread the word. Finding a reception spot for a wedding was stressful because I felt like every place was gouging and... More

Hello Jan - we wanted to thank you very much for your review of our resort. It looks like you all caught us near the end of our season. We were gearing up to close down for the winter. The dining room & saloon close in mid-September once the majority of our guests leave, this could also be the reason... More

I had high hopes for Harmel's but we ended up cutting our trip short just so we could go get a good night's sleep somewhere else. The cabins look like they haven't been maintained in 20 years. The front step on our cabin was worn almost all the way through. The bathroom is straight out of the seventies complete with... More

Hello Cassie - Thank you for taking the time to review Harmel's Ranch Resort. I do remember your stay with us and there were some unfortunate miscommunications that lead to you being placed in the accommodations so close to the wedding reception. If I remember correctly you were the daughter or niece coming to visit a family member that was... More

We fly fish (4-6 friends) once a year up at the Taylor river. We normally stay at other cabins below the river. First impression was very nice. Staff are very nice and the property but cabins are average. We've killed 5 spiders during one night of our stay. Bathroom is so tiny and old. We had buffet dinner for all... More

Hello John - Thank you for reviewing Harmel's Ranch Resort. We take all of our reviews very seriously and base some our winter projects on what people have said they liked and disliked. Many of our cabins were built nearly 100 years ago - we feel that is part of their rustic charm. Some of the bathrooms are a bit... More

Every summer we take my daughter over to Harmel's to go horseback riding at their stables across the street from the lodge. In past years she has just done the 5 minute for $5 riding experience where they just lead her up and down the 40ft path (we usually spring for a couple rounds) until this year. This year since...
