“Best Rejuvenation and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Our family of 10 had the most memorable vacation with a variety of activities that appealed to all ages! Whether sitting out on the deck to work on Bible study, hiking, or on horseback, the landscape scenery was always awe inspiring and rejuvenating to the spirit! Combine this with the fellowship of Deer Valley staff and other guests, and the vacation was the best we've ever had as a family!

In the last 30 years we have visited 19 different ranches in a half dozen states. This one was so outstanding in the quality of its staff, management, food and programs that it will be the first ranch that we go back to. It seemed like many of the guests that were there had been returning year after year-- a sign of an outstanding operation. The ranch is in a beautiful mountain location.

Room Tip: Lodge was very good for a couple

I've been vacationing at Deer Valley Ranch for over 26 years. The quality of the food, staff and activities have remained excellent. I especially enjoy the planned hikes led by experienced hiking guides. This brings peace of mind to a flat lander like myself. The family style dinners are a great way to meet other guests and is definitely an added perk you may not consider before arriving. Having stayed in both a cabin as well as the lodge on the ranch, I enjoy them both. You can't go wrong. We will definitely be returning.

At this beautifully situated guest ranch we found (as we have before) smiling faces on the staff, fabulous food, friendly guests, specific extra-mile care, great horses, and a feeling of being part of a family! We can hardly wait till our grandchildren are old enough to bring along.

This is our 3rd year to stay for a week at Deer Valley Ranch (2 - 60 yr olds, 2 - 40 yr olds, 3 teens -17-14, 1 - 9 yr old). The food is family style 3 meals/ day & 5 star! There are activities for all age groups, horse back riding - all ages, hiking, pool, reading in the lodge, teen rock climbing, etc. every day something different. Christian flavor to all of it. The whole staff has always been delightful. Yep, we already have our reservation s made for next year (and our teenagers would not have it any other way)! [Nor would we...]

Ours was a family get together with ages from 3 months to 73 years of age and we all had a wonderful time. There were babysitters that the kids loved who made it possible for the adults to do things like hiking and trail riding, and there were classes teaching beginners how to ride. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We have no trouble recommending this experience.

I have been coming to Deer Valley as long as I can remember. It is such a joy to watch my own children explore and unplug in the same places I did as a child. There is so much to do with the whole family and this time my boys were old enough to participate in Ranch organized kid activities. The entire Deer Valley experience is wholesome and I never once worried about the kindness or qualification of the people I was leaving my with.

One of my friends from college joined us on this trip. She said she had never been anywhere else where not only the staff but ALL of the other guests smiled and waved wherever we went.

We all had an amazing time and can't wait to come back this Christmas!
