I'm a little late getting this review written, as we stayed on the property back in early September. However, as I'm thinking ahead toward the trips we might want to take in 2016, I find myself thinking about how much we enjoyed our time at Avalanche Ranch. While the property would be terrific location getaway for families, my wife and... More

So fortunate to have attended a wedding weekend here. We stayed in the "Gypsy Wagon!" So cute! The grounds were beautiful, the springs were divine and the staff were so kind. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

We love this place. We've just completed our sixth stay here, and it was just as perfect as always. The cabins are pristine and comfortable, the hot springs are absolutely wonderful, and the hosts are warm and friendly. Sitting on the porch at night, you can hear the river across the road, see the full moon come up over the... More

This is an excellent ranch that I had the pleasure of staying at for 4 days. I was on a girls trip and our experience was so wonderful. They have paid attention to every little detail. The hot springs are nice and small and with different temperatures. It is open to the public for certain hours per day. You must... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the Avalanche Ranch from June 24 through June 27 2015, and were SO pleased. It is the most gorgeous setting with the mountains surrounding the cabins and the sound of the the Avalanche Creek just across the road. There are 3 hot spring pools only a short walk away, so after a full day... More

My grandpa found this little place. It's about 1/2 hour outside the busy Glenwood Springs. It's got several cabins, off site ranch houses and shepherds wagons. It's got it's own hot spring pools (small but nice) with varying temperatures. There's a small fishing pond a short distance from the cabins and a lodge that's open 24 hours with books, ping...

I travel all over Colorado searching out hot springs. Avalanche Ranch IS the best I have found for the "Complete Rustic Nirvana" experience. Impeccably clean, maintained, and appointed throughout the entire place both indoors and out. The whole place is chocked full of charm and things to do like antiquing, animal farm, boating on a pond, fishing (they stock it,... More

My wife and I have been to a lot of different hot springs throughout Colorado and New Mexico and this is one of the best. This was our first time to Avalanche Ranch and we will certainly be back. Beautiful view of the mountains, trails nearby, a trout pond, a small lodge, farm animals to see, a gift shop, great... More
