Vista Verde ranch is amazing. The staff is friendly, enthusiastic, and very welcoming. We felt right at home. It was the perfect honeymoon spot and we can't wait to visit again! The facilities and activities were also top notch...so much fun.

This was my 5th trip to Vista Verde Ranch and our second trip during winter. While the scenery is spectacular and the activities are wonderful, this ranch excels in finding and keeping superb staff. Every employee, whether guide, wrangler, dining staff , ranch operations, or

Thank you for being such a loyal supporter of the ranch, and of all of us. We love having you out here, and look forward to the next time you walk through the doors to say hello again. Thanks for sharing your VVR experience with other travelers. We can talk all day long about how we love the place, but it means a lot more coming from a guest who has a different perspective. Steph and the VVR crew

When I found this ranch on the internet last year, I did lots of research because it seemed too good to be true. All the past guests raved about how awesome this place was. When I went last year, I was blown away. The staff is so wonderful, food is delicious and so many fun

This is my third review for the best luxury guest ranch IN THE WORLD. The setting is unbelievable, the accommodations luxurious AND rustic, the activities (no matter the season!) second to none, but the people and the level of service are what make this place. I’ve stayed in

Well, when we're feeling defeated and need a pick me up, I know who to turn to. Thank you so much! This brightened my day and the staff will love reading this. We appreciate your support and enthusiasm for what we're doing here at VVR, and love that you're a part of what makes it so special. Guests like you are part of what makes the magic carry on. Happy holidays, Steph and the VVR crew

We just got back from a short trip to Vista Verde Ranch. I wish we could have stayed longer! Although this ranch is pricier than other ranches, you get what you pay for! This place is absolutely amazing! From the service, to the food, to the accommodations, everything was

I asked Topper if he would write the reply, but he was a little too busy eating hay to be bothered, which I suppose is an indication of where his priorities lie. But, the rest of us do want to extend our thanks for this kind review and more importantly you two taking the time out of your busy lives to come spend a few days with us. Good job investing in your marriage! We do hope to see you again, and maybe the whole family at some point. Happy holidays! Steph and the VVR crew

Absolutely beautiful views and terrain. Wonderful place.
Hi bomberro05! I apologize for the slow reply, but I just returned from being out of the country, and didn't have my tripadvisor login with me to answer sooner! Our stays during that time of year run Sunday-Sunday. We do have one cabin that is available for both the weeks of September 17-24 and September 24-Oct 1. That is a gorgeous time of year to visit, as typically you will see peak colors with the aspens and foliage changing for the fall. We offer guided hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, horseback riding, horsemanship clinics, rock climbing, yoga, Pilates, cooking class, wine tasting, photography workshop....phew, the list goes on! To get a better idea of pricing, I'm going to point you towards our rates page, so you may see all that is included. I can't post a link here, but if you go to our website, then hover over Explore, then click on Summer under the Rates heading you can see them. It's pretty clean and easy- we like to keep it simple and make your vacation relaxing so you're not worrying about what costs what along the way. Please don't hesitate to contact myself or Devyn in the office if you'd like to explore this a bit further. 800-526-7433 Thanks again for reaching out, and we hope to see you sometime in the future! Cheers, Stephanie Vista Verde Ranch

The adults-only weeks are ideal for a honeymoon. Vista Verde will customize any activity so that just the two of you can enjoy quiet time together.

Thanks for your note. There are a few options for getting to the ranch. One is to fly into the Steamboat/Hayden airport (HDN) where we'll pick you up and bring you to the ranch. Or you can fly into Denver (DEN) and then either rent a car or take a shuttle to Steamboat, where we'll pick you up and bring you the rest of the way to the ranch. Please feel free to call or email with any other questions. 800-526-7433.

"The studio rooms in the main hall, are great for couples. Families might prefer the cabins. Each room has a private hot tub on the balcony."
"The North Fork and South Fork backed up to the pasture so it was great to arrive and see the horses in the pasture behind us!"
"The farthest cabin from the stables has a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Others just a small fridge and you can send out for laundry."
"Get a Cabin!"
"Let them determine your lodging."
