I have been to this ranch as a child and as a parent. Now 18 years later it was time to see Lost Valley Ranch as a grandparent. What I found was this is still the best family vacation on the planet. They have preserved the traditions of what made this a great vacation destination then and now. Our cabin... More

My family of 6, including 4 kids between 6 and 13, just enjoyed another outstanding family reunion (22 in total) at Lost Valley. It's our 3rd visit in as many years and the place continues to exceed all expectations from all of us. I suppose when you go to a resort of this caliber, you should expect awesome scenery, excellent... More

I have been on approximately 10-12 ranch vacations including a total of 5-6 weeks at a ranch in Montana in the '60's & '70's that I returned to with my family in 2001, plus 2 other CO ranches as well as dude ranches in TX, Arkansas, & MI. This was by far the best experience with ranch vacations. I would... More

We stayed the week of July 5th in Timberline...an apartment-like cabin close to all the action. The first night we tucked our kids in bed, they asked, "can we come back next year??" The facilities are well-kept; the grounds are beautiful; the food is delicious, but it's the staff that sets them apart. They are caring, attentive and a lot... More

We had 21 family members at the ranch this past week. It is an awesome experience that can not be explained. We have been going for over 30 years and the staff does nothing but improve. I think there's something truly magical about the spirit of the ranch--a spirit of acceptance, adventure, and plain old fun, a spirit that transcended... More

I am local in Denver. So this place isn't really far for Denver residents. I have also been riding in many different parts of Colorado so I can give a comparison as far as riding goes.
