We planned a last minute off-season getaway for our 10th anniversary. We assumed it would be mostly adults since it was the end of September and it is more of a luxury resort. When we called we were given the last available room and were so excited to have been able to book our stay. The interaction with the staff... More

I regret hearing that your expectations were not met for your special weekend. I hope that you will give us an opportunity to make that up to you in the future. This was a very full weekend and a last minute trip, however I agree that your experience would have been more enjoyable had you had a private cabin. I... More

Our expectations were high coming to this ranch in Colorado and they were exceeded by an amazing staff and location. The food, the accommodations, the view and the activities were only surpassed by staff that wanted to ensure we had the best vacation ever! It was a fantastic birthday vacation and we have already recommended it to friends and are... More

Smith Fork Ranch is phenomenal. From the beautiful location and lodges/cabins/rooms, to the extraordinary staff, fantastic cuisine, terrific activities, our compete experience was better than anything we could have imagined. They are doing everything right, and is what we consider the Best Resort/Ranch Experience in Colorado! Obviously, we are huge fans! Thank you, Rick & Barbara

My mom and I were looking for a fun getaway that would allow us to do things we didn't normally get to do. She lives in Charlotte and I live in Pittsburgh, so we decided on a Colorado ranch vacation. When picking the ranch, we was looking for a few things: 1) Activities. We wanted to ride horses from dawn... More

We stayed at Smith Fork for 10 nights in August 2014. We are a family of four with an eleven year old daughter and eight year old son. The food, wine, wranglers, ambience, setting were all super. At Smith Fork, you feel as though you are personal guests of the owners, the Hodgsons. If you go, try the team penning-... More

Not really sure what to say, the place is just spectacular, the staff is friendly and warm, the location is gorgeous, just a great place and a terrific way to spend time with friends/family. We spent almost a week there, family trip, 3 young kids, and they were devastated that we had to leave. I don't usually write reviews, but... More

Outstanding staff, gorgeous views, amazing food, accommodating in every way!!

Simply put, we had a fantastic time! If you are on the fence, don't be; you will have nothing but a fun, adventurous, yet relaxing good time, at a luxury ranch complete with staff who makes each guest feel like family. It's completely up to you, how you decide to enjoy the ranch; whether you want to just sit and... More

Our family has spent a full week at Smith Fork Ranch each of the last six summers. The Ranch is a beautiful and serene spot to relax and enjoy the outdoors but also a place where you can choose your own adventure. The horseback riding is fantastic--the guides know how to make riding enjoyable for both inexperienced and experienced riders.... More
