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

Coming from Holland and wanted to get the ''USA western'' experience, we got more than we expected. It starts with the fact that the surroundings of the ranch are breathtaking. As we are unexperienced, riding on a horse, the staff ensured us, it would be no problem. They were right. Calm and easy horses to ride on. And compliments go... More

We spent a long weekend at Coulter Lake and it was the perfect spot for a reunion with old friends. The scenery itself was breathtaking - no civilization as far as the eye could see. I loved the sound of the stream that runs right by the lodge and into Coulter Lake - chilly and just the place to sooth... More

Reunited with a group of 9 friends at Coulter Lake. It was perfect. The drive in through the breath taking White Water Canyon sets the stage. Beautiful setting far away from the hustle and bustle. It truly is at the end of the road. The staff were exceptionally friendly and eager to accommodate our schedule and whims. The food was... More
