This is a very comfortable, cozy ranch with a real family feel to it. The owners are delightful, warm and efficient - they've been through many years of guest ranching and still have their passion and love for it. So convenient - just an hour and a half from Denver, same altitude - big pluses for flatlanders.

We returned to Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch this summer for the second time (my third time). So did three other couples we met last year at Sylvan Dale. This ranch offers something for everyone. I can't say enough about this place. From the excellent staff, the horses, the rides, the food, the care and thoughtfulness of Susan and Dave -... More

My brother, mother, and I went to the ranch for four days, Sunday through Wednesday, but I wish we would've stayed the whole week! All of the people on the ranch were wonderful and so caring; everyone there wanted to ensure that we got the full experience and completely enjoyed our trip. From horseback riding, to bass fishing, to trap... More

I didn't stay at the dude ranch but I did go horseback riding there. Something I haven't done in years. There was a total of 4 of us including our wrangler who was so kind and friendly. They provide boots and hats just in case you are not equipped. One of the ladies in our group was married there a... More

Sylvan Dale offers all kinds of cabins and food and adventure plans. We stayed in the Tommy Cabin with breakfast while visiting nearby family. Several times our 9 year old daughters rode and loved it. We invited our family to dinner in the lodge and we found ourselves enchanted by the intimate meal and music on the porch. We swam... More

We took a family vacation to Sylvan Dale, initially to get our daughter acclimated to the area before starting school at CSU. Not only was she acclimated, she was adopted! She now has an entire family to look after her. The owners of this beautiful ranch take great pride in their home, their family and their heritage. Staff members are... More

My kids didn't want to go home! The Sylvan Dale Ranch is a beautiful place that offers a wide variety of activities and plenty of down time if you wish. The staff members treated my family like we were part of their own. They really care about the guests, the ranch and the animals and it shows in everything they... More

We stayed at Sylvan Dale for a family reunion that included about 30 guests, ages 9 to 80. There was plenty for everyone to do, the food and rooms were great, and the staff was outstanding. They really made sure everyone was having fun and had everything they needed. The horses and hiking trails are great, and the grounds are... More

We had such an amazing experience at the Sylvan Dale Ranch - from start to finish. It was truly a unique trip. The kids were asking when we could return before we even left. This was an authentic dude ranch vacation. The staff ensured that all of our needs were met each day - from activities, to meals to accomodations.... More

Having been to a number of dude ranches over the years, within minutes of arriving at Sylvan Dale, it was obvious that this ranch was built on love and a passion to share this lifestyle with guests from around the world. Such a welcoming atmosphere where everyone is considered family. You may arrive as a guest, but you leave as... More
