Perhaps the most friendly staff we have ever worked with. The accommodations for the price were an excellent value. The selection of food choices was great, and the location was within 20-40 minutes of Frasier and Winter Park for other dining, alpine skiing and other snow sport activities. The Sombrero Stables staff is also very friendly, and the horseback riding/horse-drawn... More

..not a hotel. I took my girl scout troop and we had a wonderful time. Crafts, campfires. hiking, canoeing, rafting, zip lining and beautiful views. The staff were terrific and there of lots of lodging and activity options. An older place, but certainly not "roughing it". A great spot year round.

This "resort" sadly lost most of it's trees to the pine bark beetle infestation so it looks a bit sad & depressing. The summer view without snow in the mountains is rather dry & brittle. The dining hall has great windows & high beamed ceilings with exposed ductwork which would have seemed like a modern, lofty atmosphere except for all... More

We rented a cabin for two nights on the ranch since our friends were getting married there. We got a 3 bedroom cabin. It was nice that it had 2 full bathrooms. There was a full kitchen w/ a coffee maker and the entire cabin was clean, although there was a smell of "old" but I got used to it.... More

Lots to see and do, great friendly staff and yummy food. I volunteered there for 2 weeks and when not working I rode horses, zip lined, and did some archery. The aspen were changing colors, the elk were bugling and the Rockies were beautiful. I will be back for sure!

We booked a room in the Aspenbrook lodge for the yearly Chinese Heritage Camp. Since it was a YMCA my expectations were not all that high. Yes it was dated but clean enough. We had 2 queen sized beds and a bunk bed in our room. There was also a great room and meeting rooms in the lodge. We ate... More

The most redeeming feature of this property is the beautiful cabins that have spectacular views of the mountains. The ranch is definitely worn and not kept up. Every amenity they offer from roller skating to the pool is poorly maintained and worn and in barely working condition. Their is very little attention to detail in the cabins. An example of... More

Our anniversary week at Snow Mountain Ranch was all we had hoped it to be. The accomodations (Indian Peak Lodge) and food and activities (walking stick making, frontier history info and church) were all appreciated. All the staff we met were very helpful and friendly. We loved the freedom to go on our own mountain day trips in our rented... More

We stayed at the Snow Mountain Ranch location which has a little yurt village. Both the Estes Park and SMR have a great collection of cabins, from small family to huge family reunion-type, as well as a lot of different lodge rooms. All accommodations include a huge variety of family activities (some require a small fee but most are free).... More

I hate to say anything bad about this place since it's heart is in the right place, but I need to tell people who read this that the quality of accommodations were on the par of a motel six or below. We rented cabin number two with three bedrooms and two baths, and it looked straight out of the 60's.... More
