Keep in mind - I have had horses most my life - so I'm fussy about the quality of horses I ride - - I found the string at Sylvan were above par.... The grounds were immaculate - beautiful place. But the thing I liked in particular was the food - - it was so scrumpious. The staff also is... More

From the minute I stepped on to this wonderful place I felt like I was at home. I have travelled all over the world and I must say the staff on this ranch are some of the best I've ever had the honor of knowing. I felt so warm and so welcome and they just couldn't do enough to meet... More

I traveled to Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch at the end of June with my in-laws, husband and three kids (17,15, 10). The first night at dinner all of the families introduced themselves and one of the guests who had gone several times described the place as "Magical". I did not truly understand what she meant at the time but it... More

I had the pleasure of riding at Sylvan Dale Ranch with 5 of my girlfriends during a recent trip to CO. We are all experienced equestrians and had a wonderful ride through the rocky mountains on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Our guide was Lonnie and he was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the ranch. He had plenty of stories... More

We researched around 15 ranches and initial filter was response to a standard email. Karen gave the best, most personal and complete response and that, along with video on their website sold us. We struck gold by going in a quiet week for Susan, David and the gang, as we enjoyed a level of flexibility and individual attention that would... More

Sylvan Dale is our home away from home. We fell in love with the ranch on our first visit in 1996. The staff is remarkable - so competent and happy. They love working there. Our wedding was there in a beautiful outdoor setting. For six years our family visited for summer dude season. We still have the ribbons we won... More

We could not have asked for a better experience. The setting was awesome, the activities too numerous to fit in, fantastic service, great food but most of all the ever present and warm hospitality. Sylvan has created a culture of excellence that pervades all they do.

This was my first dude ranch experience at Sylvan Dale and it exceeded every expectation... The family and the staff are dedicated to ensuring everyone has a great experience. The accommodations aren't luxurious but they're comfortable, clean and authentic. The food isn't fancy but it's delicious and there's enough variety and thought put into the menus that any reasonable dietary... More

We had a week-long stint at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch for a family reunion a few weeks ago and couldn't have been more thrilled with our experience. The difference in Sylvan Dale is the attention to detail and the family touch. It is completely obvious it is family-run with pride. Everyone is genuine and they are attentive to making sure...
