We are anxiously awaiting our 10th visit to Vista Verde Ranch. We look so forward each year to the snow, the wonderful cabin, the absolutely amazing staff and all the activities. We are both seniors and we are never disappointed by this trip. The ranch motto seems to be "we can make that happen". They are never too busy to... More

I stayed at Vista Verde in August with my husband and two children, and we all loved it. My kids didn't want to leave the kids camp, and were sad for weeks after we returned home, missing their horses, wranglers and new friends. My husband and I loved the hiking, mountain biking and fishing. The guides are top-notch - we... More

What a nice review, thank you! Your family was wonderful to have here at the ranch this past summer. I really enjoyed our hike together, and think of it as one of the highlights of my summer. Thanks for taking the chance on trying out this different kind of vacation, given all the amazing trips you have on your list.... More

After attending a convention in Colorado Springs, we went to VVR for a quick weekend. There is no way that we could be so close to the ranch and not take advantage of their hospitality. The super friendly, personal, yet professional attention to each guest has earned them distinction. Added to that is superb cuisine. luxurious ranch comfort, and numerous... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at Vista Verde for our honeymoon and it was all we could've hoped for and so much more.

We've been going to great dude ranches in the west for about 10 years. They all offer something wonderful, special and fun. THIS IS THE BEST yet! We look for friendly attentiveness, gourmet food and wine, pleasing comfortable bedding, a variety of activities and general "personality" that is open, upbeat, and caring. Vista Verde staff including the wranglers, chefs, fishing... More

We enjoyed watching you all have fun together, but also split up and explore different aspects of the ranch as well as get to know the other guests. There was lots of laughter and great conversations that week! Knowing how many... More

Vista Verde provides an amazing, luxury guest ranch experience. It's not as cowboy-centric as a dude ranch as they provide many "new-west" activities such as fly fishing, mountain biking, etc. This was our family's second year there, and while I could write on and on about the experience, I'll focus on two points. First, our family rarely repeats trips, so... More

Everything was wonderful, clean cabins, lovely people, great horses, wonderful food. We went last year and this year brought our daughter's family - two kids 7 and2 1/2, They don't let the little one ride, but made her stay enjoyable in every other way! The 7 year old just plain didn't want to go home - ever!
