This was a vacation we'll never forget! From the moment that Mike, the maintenance manager, picked us up at our hotel in Durango, to the day we left, we felt welcomed and appreciated. It's the first vacation spot that we actually didn't want to leave! Jeanne, the ranch manager, was such a joy to be around and was so organized and efficient. We experienced gourmet meals, lots of horseback riding and fishing, wonderful staff, and a friendly laid back atmosphere. The ranch is set up like a little Western town and is very well maintained with colorful buildings and clean, neat surroundings. We had the Longview cabin which had a beautiful view of green hills, pastures, and the barn and stables. There was such a variety of activities to choose from that we were never bored. Sign up for most morning activities was done the night before and most afternoon activities were arranged at lunchtime. This made for a very leisurely vacation as, except for a few outside excursions that required advance sign up, we could be quite spontaneous when planning our day. Although we didn't have any children with us, we could see that the children's program was full and fun-filled. Except for mealtime, parents had the day to themselves while the kids were off fishing, horseback riding, and even on an overnight camp out. All I can say is that at the end of our stay we were already trying to plan our next vacation at Colorado Trails Ranch.
