Sylvan Dale hosted our 40 Anniversary for the local Sons of Norway Lodge. I have received the highest praises from all that attended the celebration. It is obvious that the staff members are professional but still down to earth and easy to work with. You can't beat the location. No rubber chicken here, the food was excellent!

Talkk about AMAZING! We were greeted warmly and treated like royalty during our entire stay. As an added bonus, we learned so much about not only the area and its geology and inhabitants, but also about what it takes to create and maintain this gorgeous place. Truly a work of art !!!

Family run, with care, pride and expertise. Every facet of this ranch experience sets the bar higher for others. If you have a request or a need, they will do their best to accommodate. They raise their own horses and treat them with love, which I believe is why their horses are so superior. For these horses each to be... More

I love it! Sylvan Dale is an excellent place to spend few hours or stay in the beautiful cabins. I went with more than 14 people, from 8 different countries as part of CSU mobile seminar. We just expend 2 or 3 hours, but were amazing. Dave and Susan are incredible persons. Food was delicious, the dessert was just perfect.... More

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.

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
