Our family (wife and two boys - 8 and 10) had a wonderful time at this ranch. It started by a very warm greeting the moment we drove on the ranch. Somehow they knew our names and called us by name from day one. Probably one of the biggest things that we noticed from day one was how well the... More

We came as a German family of 5 and didn't really know what we would have to expect. At every time of our stay we felt very warmly taken care of by all team members. Tom and Sue put so much of their own character into this ranch, the weekly program and the delicious food that you can be sure... More

I've been there 4 times already, and will come back again. The whole family had a wonderful time and we enjoyed the riding and all the other activities. Food was fantastic and the cabins are clean and perfectly decorated.

My family of four loved every moment on the ranch. The staff gave us a nice warm welcome and made us feel right at home. Tom and Sue, the owners, were so kind and understanding. The food, lodging and activities were excellent and very clean. The trail riding was awesome and all the horses there were very sweet. If you... More

The hospitality of all the staff went beyond our expectations. The trail rides provided beautiful scenery and the meals were wonderful. Our kids participated in the kids program and they had so much fun with the wonderful kids camp leaders. They rode horses, did crafts, worked with the pigs, goats and sheep, searched for gold, and much, much more. They... More

My son and I absolutely loved our week at the Ranch - everything about it, the staff, the other guest, accommodations, the food, the horses, the setting, all the activities, everything! We have nothing but very fond memories. You feel like Tom and Sue have really put their heart and soul into this place, they make you feel at home... More

Fantastic ranch vacation for the whole family. Our family, including my wife, 12 yr old daughter, and 10 yr old son, felt immediately at home with Tom, Sue, and all their staff. The riding, food, friendships, and extra excursions were wonderful. We loved the white water rafting day as well as the trip over the continental divide to Aspen. The... More

My husband, daughter, and I were interested in experiencing a dude ranch vacation and learning how to ride horses. What we came back with was SO much more! EMR is filled with employees that welcome you as part of their family. My daughter became so attached to not only the friends she made with the other guests, but with nearly... More
