“Fantastic Accomodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We had 5 couple staying at the River Ranch house for a friend's 40th birthday celebration and it was outstanding. The River Ranch house accomodations were outstanding, the bedrooms were well furnished and very comfortable. There were two bathrooms upstairs for the four bedrooms which worked out perfectly to get everyone ready for our adventures.

The kitchen is well stocked for cooking your own food - full sized refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and all of the cups, plates, utensils you'd need. The house is pretty convenient to Canon City for picking up food but you can also go to the Whitewater grill and eat which has good food at reasonable prices.

At night, the hot tub, firepit and hammocks outside provided the perfect relaxation spots for our whole group and we would not hesitate to go back for another trip.

First trip to the River Ranch was August 2010 (see review). We were so well taken care of that the River Ranch was the first choice when our group was planning our 2011 trip. We were absolutely taken care of by Jimmy and the enitre staff at Royal Gorge Rafitng. These folks know what service really is and it shows in every interaction.
If you are looking to stay at place that is nicer than home, with a company that treats you as a guest in their home and in an area that is just absolutely breath taking then the The River Ranch ran by Royal Gorge Rafting in beautiful Canon City is the place for you!

Our family enjoyed this amazing home for three nights and four days. Jimmy was very helpful when we made our reservations and even met us in Cannon City late at night to escort us to the cabin. Thank you, Jimmy. Fortunately, there was no need to contact him during our stay, everything was perfect and there were no problems. We enjoyed the cozy, comfortable and spacious bedrooms. The kitchen was well organized, with dishes and every cooking utensil we needed, as well as updated appliances for cooking every meal inside and out for our large group. We all enjoyed the hammock chairs on the the large wrap around deck and the hot tub. The kiddos, especially enjoyed making and eating smores at night while we all visited around the firepit. The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed visiting the Royal Gorge Bridge and park, which was just right up the road a few miles. Some of the outdoorsmen in our group enjoyed fishing and hiking right on the the property. When finding a vacation rental online. you sometimes are not sure what you will get until you arrive. We were very pleased and happy to have found this large, beautiful home for our family get together. Although it was not the time of year for rafting, we hope to return this summer and stay in this wonderful vacation home, for a family rafting trip.

Lots of space, really sturdy log style furniture, no breakables (great for little kids!). Wonderful view. Hot tub rocked. Awesome fire pit. Cool walk to river. Kitchen was easy to cook in!

We spent the weekend at this amazing house and despite sharing the house with 16 people, it was one of the most relaxing weekends we have ever had. The bedrooms are spacious, yet cozy. The kitchen and great room allowed for large family style dinners and the fire pit and hot tub had us wishing we could stay forever. The best part of the whole house, though, are the hanging hammock chairs that overlook unbelievable views. Can't wait to go back!!

What a place!!! We slept 13 very comfortably and ate every meal in the top of the line kitchen. No one in our group had ever experienced a vacation rental this nice. This place had all the amenities, wonderful views and activities just steps out the door. What put this place way over the top was the level of service we received. There was an issue with the hot tub fixed; within an hour of check-in. We made a suggestion to put a fridge in the garage...next day a fridge was installed in the garage. Jimmy thank you for making our stay so fabulous !!!!
The ranch is ran by Royalgorgerafting.net. If you are looking for a great adventure, complete with personal attention and the same superior level of service then ask their greatest guides, Sean and Crystal.

The experience overall was fantastic! I enjoyed every minute of it! The location was stunning and was located right up against a river. It felt like I was in the heart of nature! The scenery around us was quite and idyllic. The fire pit was amazing and served us well with our group! It kept us warm even when it was so chilly and offered a wonderful winter ambiance! The hot tub was a great addition and the rooms were spacious and cozy.
