We like to try off the grid places in Colorado that have access to amazing snowmobiling, and of the many different places we've been, this is by far our new favorite. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The ranch is well maintained, easy to get to, and the food is very approachable and satisfying. We had 2 dinners and... More

The staff, Tim, Matt, Patti and the owner Jack are so nice and accommodating. Food was home style and delicious. Ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling. Get hidden gem to get away. Will enjoy a summer weekend in 2016. Beautiful place.

Today, my brother and I returned from a long Labor Day weekend stay at Coulter Lake Ranch, and I couldn't wait to write a review. I am so happy this place exists. In short, this was the most perfect vacation, and I couldn't have asked for a better setting for our sibling getaway. I hadn't been to a guest ranch... More

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

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
