My husband and I stayed at Sylvan Dale Ranch last weekend. We live only 45 minutes away, and I go up there to ride whenever I can, but it was a real treat for us to be able to spend two whole nights there. The "Swing into Spring" special gave us plenty to do, and at the same time we... More

We stayed at Sylvan Dale for our first dude ranch experience this past summer and loved it. All the staff were warm and welcoming, and extremely accommodating of any requests. The riding lessons on our "own" horses were wonderful, especially with Lori and Slim taking superb care of our young children (first-time riders). The food was delicious. Our cabin was... More

In August 2013 my wife and I were spending our second year at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch. The fact that we came back after our first year speaks volumes to how much we enjoyed the whole Sylvan Dale experience. About 1 week after we left for home the Big Thompson River overflowed her banks in a terrible flood that had... More

It's an excellent venue for family reunions. There is something to do for everyone. Great for kids. Staff is very friendly. The owners, the Jessups add the personal touch. They manage to make everyone feel special. I have been here twice & would come again, given the choice. A warning though, if you are a vegetarian please let them know... More

Went to Sylvan Dale in 2012 for the first time because it was on my Bucket List. I went by myself since I couldn't get anyone to go with me. WOW! One of the reasons I picked Sylvan Dale was because they have an overnight cattle drive. It was awesome! I slept out under the stars and it was wonderful.... More

First vacation by myself and it was great! Lots of horseback riding through beautiful countryside and foothills of the Rockies. There was plenty to keep you busy, or you could just relax on the front porch of your cabin. The staff at Sylvan Dale were wonderful. They made you feel like part of the family. The food was great and... More

I came all the way from Israel to spend a week at Sylvan Dale. I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I made the first reservation. It turned out to be the best experience I have had in years! It was so amazing the I returned the year after, and this is turning out to be my yearly... More

This two night event could not have been better. The staff at Sylvan Dale moves seemingly effortlessly to assure their guests a unique experience. About 12 of our guests enjoyed the horseback riding. Some of the kids had never been on horses before. The cowboy explained how to get a horse to follow the direction of the rider, and was... More

We went to work on our western riding skills & we accomplished them and so much more! We plan/hope to make it there annually - even if we do move to the area! The staff felt more like friends & family than regular staff... Always a positive way to spin any negatives!

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
