Our family of four (including a 10 year old and 7 year old) booked a relatively last minute vacation at the ranch for the five days that were available. It was perfect. Lodging (in Stonehenge), every meal and the wonderful staff who cooked, served and joined us (one better than the next, and I wish I had bought the cookbook... More

Just coming back from an amazing week at North Fork with my husband and three kids (twins 8 and oldest 11). I had done extensive research online (Top 50 luxury dude ranches and tripadvisor) but honestly wasn't exactly sure what to expect. While we were only there for a week, I feel like I have been away for a month... More

Four generations of our family (ages 3 to 87) gathered at North Fork Ranch for a week in July, 2013. We flew in from all parts of the country/world to share the experience and be together. The Ranch, the accommodations, the food (and the family style dining), the staff, the owners, the activities (rafting the Arkansas River, riding horses every... More

My daughter and I stayed at North Fork Ranch last week and had an exceptional experience. The ranch is beautiful- set in a valley with a river running through the property. The food was fantastic and the staff could not have been more kind and attentive. We rode horses, shot skeet, and fished. I recommend this ranch highly for anyone... More

Dude ranch great for families of all ages. The owners and staff really help customize your vacation experience to your riding level, interests, and food preferences/needs. I felt very safe with children (ours age 9 & 12) and our limited riding experience. Best service and food I have ever had at an all inclusive resort, the whole experience was amazing... More

To say that this incredibly special property in one of the most gorgeous settings ever imagined is IMMACULATE is an understatement. From the guest buildings to the horse corrals to the benches thoughtfully dotted along the carefully trimmed creekside banks of a screamingly fishy section of the north fork of the south Platte river, North Fork Ranch is Pristine. The... More

Family week (6 adults) was one of the best vacation weeks I have ever experienced. A wonderderful "special birthday" celebration for me. Low key, but continuosly engaged if desired; active, but plenty of choices for quiet times. Fishing, zip lining, horses, hiking, white water rafting . . . Food was delicious and always available. Hosts and staff were magnificent. This... More

North Fork ranch is truly amazing - the scenery, food, accomodations and service. The owners and staff go above and beyond to ensure everyone's needs are met (including anyone with dietary restrictions). While only a few miles from the Denver metro area, you feel a million miles away. It is an incredible place for a retreat from hectic day to... More

The food, views, and accomodations were outstanding. Went for a work retreat and will definitely visit again so I can share the experience with the whole family. If you are lucky enough to have your birthday there, ask for the carrot cake! (It is amazing!)

Located in a gorgeous place in the mountains. Extremely peaceful, great place to relax and get away from the every day rush. Excellent service, very clean facilities. Food is fantastic- could compete with any gourmet restaurant. Very friendly owners and staff, make you feel at home. They thought of everything- there are benches and tables where you need them to...
