We stayed here over MLK weekend. I have been looking into the ranch for a few years now, but always dismissed it since it's pretty spendy. After our 3 night stay, I have to say it's totally worth it!! I took our kids, ages 7 and 16. My 16 year old is on the Autism spectrum, and reluctant to try... More

We visited the ranch during the first week of November. In a nut shell, my girls (13 & 15) we bored from the moment we arrived. Needless to say, when I booked our trip I asked if there were activities besides horseback riding for my older kids, I was ASSURED that there was plenty of options for them. There wasn't... More

We just came back from a 3 day stay at Rocking Horse Ranch. This place is great for families with small kids. My kids loved it so much they asked to spend their birthday celebrations there. Staff were really nice, especially the ones outdoors - the staff in the ski, tubing and ice skating area were really friendly. The lifeguards... More

We stayed in room 135 this past long weekend and had a blast. We originally went in the summer about 3 years ago (loved it) and always wanted to go back in the winter. The winter did not disappoint. I thought it was a perfect place for a family. Food--Great for having to feed so many people. Impressed with the... More

So many fun things to do. The food was pretty good and the activities kept everyone busy. The staff was incredible!! I was really impressed with... More

Variety of activities and great staff! My three year old daughter loved snow tubing and skiing for the first time! The staff gave my daughter a card, balloons, a brownie sundae and sang Happy Birthday for her. A very kind and sweet gesture! We will be back soon!!

Rocking Horse Dude Ranch has figured out how to perfectly blend modern amenities with rustic and cozy personal charm. The staff is eager to accommodate. The food is abundant and delicious. The activities are well organized, fun and exciting. My kids were busy all day snow tubing, skiing and playing in the indoor waterpark. At night we enjoyed the various... More

RHRis a very nice place for kids ages 5-10. However, a lot of descriptions on their website are exaggerated. Their water park in reality consists of one slide. The slope is so small they do not give out ski sticks. The skiing instruction consists of a couple of guys on the slope that will give kids tips. But it is... More

Dear Irina V, Thank you very much. We’re happy to hear you were impressed with our staff and the quality of the meals included with your stay. Regarding your comments about the Winter Fun Park… it’s actually nearly three times the size of the Magic Carpet area of Vail Mountain, CO. The Magic Carpet Lift on our Never Ever and... More

Our family of 4 (kids ages 9 and 3) had a fantastic time! I was skeptical (I am a germaphobe on vacation) and this place could not have been any cleaner!!! From the rooms (spacious and CLEAN) to the dining (food is excellent - something for everyone - GREAT salad bar) and the common areas -- cozy, warm, friendly atmosphere... More
