The words needed to adequately describe our time at SDR are difficult to find. The staff truly is amazing, the grounds are beautiful and peaceful, and the horses are well-trained and gorgeous. The staff immediately makes you feel like family, we honestly did not want to leave ! There are various comments I could make concerning SDR, but one of... More

We really enjoyed our trail ride at Sylvan Dale Ranch. The trail was exciting and scenic and our guide was so friendly and conversational throughout the ride. The horses are responsive and sure footed. Every effort is made to ensure riders of all skill and confidence levels are comfortable and safe. Look them up. 3200 acres on this ranch and... More

I was in this area on business and wanted to take my wife horseback riding after she got off work (around 4:30). I called to setup a reservation, but was informed that all horses needed to be back by 4pm. The lady was nice, but that is ridiculous. Not everybody is retired and off all day long. It doesn't get...

We are sorry that you do not agree with our horses' and staff schedules. Rides are typically scheduled daily from 9am-4pm based on the availability of our wranglers and the feeding schedule of our horses. Evening rides are not requested often enough to warrant keeping staff available. We do, in fact, accommodate evening rides if given enough notice. We also... More

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
