The other reviews are accurate based on our recent experience. But this may be the most significant factor in why this was a fantastic family vacation. The first three days we saw the children(ages 8 - 11) in our group (3 families) in the morning, maybe at lunch, and at the end of the day. This allowed the adults to... More

He made great meals for our son with food allergies, vegetarian meals for me and accommodated many other guests with dietary restrictions. BABYSITTING: There were 3... More

Our vacation at Colorado Trails Ranch was fantastic! We had never been to a guest ranch before, and didn't really know what to expect. The ranch was great, the staff was incredible! My wife and I went horseback riding once or twice a day...while my wife had taken some riding lessons, I was completely inexperienced. The wranglers at the ranch... More

Just returned from a visit to CTR and it will be a vacation to talk and laugh about for years to come. The ranch is located close to Durango but far enough out to take advantage of the beautiful unspoiled high country. It is surrounded by mountains, streams and rivers that offer limitless adventures for those who dare. The horseback... More

This was our first trip to CTR (and to any dude ranch). We were not sure exactly what to expect. It turned out to exceed all of our expectations. Jeanne and the staff could not have been better. The activities will keep you as entertained as you want to be. Horseback ridding is really easy when you get great instruction... More

The price on trip adviser lists 77$ per night. This is wrong. When you call them they ask for over 300$ per night. They claim it is Trip Advisor's fault. I attempted to contact trip advisor but the website does not allow to contact them and complain. Pretty much false advertising about the price. We never booked a room. The... More

ColoradoTrailsRanch, Manager at Colorado Trails Ranch, responded to this review

I am sorry for the frustration for this reviewer. The wrong rates were posted due to a glitch with TripAdvisor. Apparently this glitch has been fixed. We have never posted rates with our listing. Our rates involve much more than just a hotel stay for the night, they include the accommodations, all the meals, virtually all the activities and the... More

From the moment we arrived til the moment we left CTR,we had the most perfect time. Our welcome was warm and informative. The food was plentiful and varied, coffee or a kettle was available all day for drinks with snacks in your lodging. The lodging was comfortable, especially the large bed and I understand the cabins are being replaced over... More

Last year we came to CTR for the first time and had such a great time. This year, we have come again. Jeanne and the gang understand it incredibly well to bring you a perfect holiday experience. Arriving at CTR feels like coming home - this is a great achievement and performance of the whole team. The food, the team,... More

We have vacationed at this ranch for 2 years with our grand daughter. We loved it. Because of the altitude my husband can no longer vacation here. I found another ranch for this summer. What a train wreak. I can now tell you the specific great things about Jeanne and her staff. The professionalism is a 5 , The safety... More
