I visited this ranch with my family for the 6-night stay. We loved the lakeside cabin, the food, being near the lake, and the horseback riding. The staff went out of there way to make our stay the best possible. The horseback riding in the mountains is wonderful with great views and different trails to take every day.

A wonderful peaceful experience, hosted by wonderful staff. Horseback riding (especially the longer trips) is the highpoint. Enjoy the 100yr old cabins with fireplaces, great meals prepared at the lodge, fishing in the stocked lake and beautiful scenery in the White river national forest. Book a rafting trip on the Colorado. Bring everything you might want in, its a long... More

Coulter Lake Guest Ranch is bar none the best vacation spot I've visited. We held our wedding here because it was the Brides dream, I see why. All of the guests were in love with the place and constantly praised it. The wedding was absolutely perfect with all the beauty surrounding us. The staff is so genuine in courteous they... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here January 17-19, 2015. This place was amazing. We booked about a month in advance having conversations over the phone and via email. The staff is amazing! They were helpful every step of the way. We initially found it online after some research. The winter rates are very reasonable for what you get and the... More

The service is awesome! They met us at the parking area to help snowmobile our bags to the cabins 3miles away. You can leave from your cabin to the Flattops to snowmobile. The food is soooo good! Remember to save room for dessert! The staff is friendly, helpful and fun.

I first visited Coulter Lake Guest Ranch 30 years ago when I was a young teenager. And I can honestly say the experience now was as memorable as back then. I am so thankful I had the chance to visit again. We attended a family reunion at the ranch in July and had an amazing time. So much to do!... More

This was without a doubt among the top 3 vacations I have ever had. Twenty three of my family members met for a week at Coulter Ranch, and 2 weeks later we are all still wishing we were there. We ranged in age from 10 to 80 and there was something for everyone to do. Horseback riding 2 times a... More

We had a family reunion that was the best ever! The managers of the ranch,Tim and Sue, and the cooking staff, and the wranglers at Coulter Lake Guest Ranch all made our reunion enjoyable and exciting. Tim and Sue organized our daily horse rides, skeet shooting, and fly fishing lessons as well as scheduled a white water rafting trip for... More

Jack, Sue and Tim have always been great hosts. Our group of 14-20peopole have been staying there 5 years now and we will keep coming back for more great snow, food and hospitality. We always enjoy the snowmobiling on the flattops. Riding is from beginner to extreme, miles and miles of groomed trails. For the extreme try Deep Creek or... More
