We love wind river. It's relaxing, fun, beautiful and rejuvenating place to go. This is our third year and we look forward to coming every year. Our boys start asking when we are going back right after we get home. It's a great setting in the mountains with lots of things to do. The food is fabulous! Staff is great... More

After a year of investigation, we selected this ranch for our "dream" get-away with our two grandsons, 9 and 11. God couldn't have selected a better place. It is impossible, in the few words permitted in this review, to do justice to our experience. Our grandsons, and we, have been moved and touched in ways that are unexplainable except through...

Wind River Ranch is amazing! We woke up every morning to the beauty of God's Creation, the Rocky Mountains. Our cabin was wonderful, comfortable and clean, 2 bedrooms, 2 bath & a front porch. The food was delicious, every day! One of the best parts was the Bible study and getting to know God and the other guests better through... More

How does one rate something that is absolutely perfect? We took our grandsons, ages 9 and 11, to this Ranch. They were reluctant to go, thinking it might not be fun. The day we left, they were in tears and still are when they talk about their vacation. Even though it rained for three days, they road horses, played volleyball,... More

This is the best investment in family time that can be made! We have been to Wind River 3 times now, and it is the highlight of our year. We have made incredible memories and friendships. The staff and service is impeccable. The individual family cabins are so comfortable and the food is fantastic. We can't wait to go back... More

Thru Wounded Warrior Project we spent 1 week at this absolutely fabulous dude ranch! We were welcomed at the gates by staff, then escorted by 2 horses/riders and received a warm, almost overwhelming, welcome from the rest of the joyous staff. The staff was exceptional and really took the time to get to know us by name. The food was... More

We have been to Wind River Ranch twice now. Once with a group of couples form our church and once with the family. It is by far the most amazing family vacation we have ever been on! Everyone had a great time participating in the daily activities, bible studies and free time. It is worth it to take the family,... More

Wind River is the ultimate Christian retreat. The setting is awe-inspiring, the staff outstanding, the food great, and the activities fun and plentiful. God has truly blessed Wind River Ministries with this property. If you are looking for spiritual refreshment, Wind River Ranch is the place to find it. We will always treasure our times there.

I don't really know where to start because I could write a small book on our experience at Wind River Ranch this past summer. To start, let me just say this was a very different vacation for our family. Our annual summer vacation had consisted of going to the beach. We had a favorite resort, knew the local restaurants, best... More

This was our first time to the Rockies and we loved the location nestled in the mountains so close to Estes Park and many hiking trails. Estes Park is a short beautiful drive and a nice place to visit and shop. The views from the ranch are spectacular. The rooms are cozy and very comfortable and they came and tended... More
