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

Absolutely amazing. Everything about this place was perfect for my wife and I from the moment we arrived. The cabins were comfortable and convenient yet just quiet enough for us to feel like we were away from everything. All the grounds were easily accessible by foot and we enjoyed walking to and from everything. Plenty of places to "hide" and... More

I had crying kids on how they didn't want to leave as they became so attached to the ranch as though it was home. Life changing vacation moved by the Holy Spirit through servant leaders in action. If you have a chance to go, once in a lifetime experience that happens every time you go.....from what I heard. Praying for... More

If you are looking for an UNFORGETTABLE and UNBELIEVABLE vacation that is family friendly and wonderfully relaxing, Wind River Ranch is the place! We can sincerely say that it was a most amazing stay. We arrived at the ranch not knowing a single soul and left knowing some of the most unselfish, giving people we have ever met. The staff...

Not a day went by on Wind River Ranch that wasn't completely fulfilling for every member of our family. There was plenty of adventure for my thrill seeking husband, while I was able to retreat to a bench swing set in the meadow to read my book. Our kids loved having the freedom on the ranch through the Tweens Club,... More
