Vista Verde is pure magic. The location, the general management, the cabins and food are all four-star amazing...but the service is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I can promise whatever your expectations are of a luxury guest ranch, they will be exceeded by the quality of the service of Vista Verde. Their guides know every inch of the property and adjacent national parks and will go OUT OF THEIR WAY to make your day special. The food is great, the cabins are cozy and comfortable and super clean. The views are SPECTACULAR. Whatever they are charging, it's well worth your investment for a wonderful getaway. Here's a tip: go to happy hour and meet the amazing people who also chose this special place! I can't begin to tell you how many friends we have met at this special place. Enjoy!

This is too kind! We are so glad you could come check out the ranch in the winter, and thanks for bringing along the crew! Your review is so sweet and generous. We love that you captured the magic of the place regrading the connections to the people. That is what makes the great scenery, amenities, food, and all the nice touches even better. We're so glad you recognize that and embrace it. Thanks again for coming to visit again, and thanks for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers. Steph and the crew

I went to a yoga retreat there and they took care of us: attention to detail, humor, extra time given to us. I loved the horses and riding them, archery was an unexpected fun, but snow mobiles and snow tubes were the best. The food and wine selections were also great. Highly recommend to check them out.

Great winter holiday--lots of skiing (x-country and backcountry--including on a beautiful frozen river); horseback riding and instructional clinics; tubing (be a kid again!); and eating! Different menus of exceptionally tasty meals each day. Excellent and friendly service, and very warm/inviting/cozy lodgings. Loved the Dome cabin and hot tub! We're already set to return next year!

Everything was incredible! Could not find one single thing that could be improved. We decided to book a week at the ranch in January for our honeymoon since international travel was limited. What a great decision on our part! It was magical. The food was absolutely top quality and the desserts were decadent. We didn't have to worry about spending a cent on that which was perfect for us. We did do the extra activities of dog sledding and snowmobiling which were so worth it- if you are going out there, sign up! The employees were so friendly and we enjoyed seeing them every day. Really above and beyond. We went off the ranch to do some back country skiing and rode horses several times, even in the snow. The snow covered mountains were just fabulous. We got a room with a hot tub and it was so nice to sit in it and watch the horses in their pasture. Would highly recommend for anybody- it is worth the price! Thank you Vista Verde for making our honeymoon so special (especially in Corona times- we felt very safe on the ranch!)

Perfect would be a modest way to describe VVR. EXCITING, RELAXING AND EXHILARATING!! We not only enjoyed the ranch but also went to Steamboat Ski Resort for a day. There's no need to have second thoughts about VVR. JUST GO!!
