Our family spent 6 nights at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch in July 2014. Traveling in our party were my wife and I, our two boys and my father in law. My wife and I along with our boys were "riders" and enjoyed horseback riding throughout the week. We had very little experience riding horses and were surprised by the amount... More

My Niece and I spent a few days at Sylvan Dale last week. This is a true testament to the definition of hospitality. The staff is outstanding and accommodating. You feel like family when you leave and the horses and the riding are fabulous. We rode horses, went white water rafting, slept under the stars and had the adventure of... More

We spent a week at Sylvan Dale in June/July 2014 and loved it! The activities are very exciting and fun. The horses are beautiful and so well trained. The owners are absolutely lovely people and every single one of the staff are so friendly. We felt like one on the family. Our kids loved the horse camp and the old... More

It was a great trip all around with many things to do! Some of my favorites were horseback riding softball and the gymkhana. I had so much fun spending the week there with my cousins! It was a blast and I will never forget how much fun it was!

One of the best vacations ever! They are such wonderful people, and cater to anything you may need. I wasn't a "ranch" person but ended up enjoying the vacation immensely! Highly recommend! We went during native american week and Grey Wolf was someone you should consider meeting - very knowledgable about Native American history and a great speaker. So many... More

This is the third trip my wife and I have made to Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch, each time with different family members. This is an excellent family run ranch since the 1940's. Their horses and cattle are raised on the ranch. We are each given a horse for the week. If you want, riding lessons are provided each day. For... More

With my daughters family in tow we stayed at this 3800-acre facility. Words can’t describe this enchanting place. I made a promise to myself to return to the ranch. My 3 and 5-year-old grandchildren with the help of Art at the stables were able to ride horses in the corral. What is remarkable is they are afraid of horses but... More

This ranch is truly a treasure!! I spent 3 days at the ranch, and mainly came for the horse riding. Not only were the horses excellent, well trained and had great character, also, the accommodation was lovely (real "Colorado feel" in wooden houses), the environment beautiful by the river, with wildlife around, and the people on the ranch were simply...

I found them doing a Google search and I'm so glad I did! My friend and I booked a 2-hour trail ride and ended up making our own trail up the side of a mountain with our wrangler, Slim, to go herd some cattle! It was so much fun!! After, we took the scenic route back with gorgeous views! I... More

I was looking at Sylvan Dale as a venue for a conference. Words can hardly express how wonderful Ge was to work with. Helpful, understanding, and willing to work with us on the bid. I would highly recommend this venue. With such a wonderful, knowledgeable staff, it's a jewel. Not to mention the beautiful sights!
