We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into with 4 young kids and no tv for a week, but my goodness we couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation. Our cabin was spacious and comfortable with a very rustic/old fashioned atmosphere (match lighting stove/no dishwasher) but that only added to the charm as my kids fought over... More

My wife and kids (ages 16, 12 and 7) had an absolutely wonderful week at Deer Valley. The setting is incredibly beautiful and the horse riding program is outstanding.

We stayed in the whitehorn cabin over the off season (Feb) with 3 adults and a dog. The cabin was plenty big, well maintained, and very homey. I was impressed with the storage and having everything we could need. The view were breathtaking and we loved having the curtains open for paramic views of the mountains as we ate dinner.... More

My wife and I wanted to get away for a few days before Thnaksgiving just to be together and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Beautiful drive and great get-away! Places to hike from the ranch, very helpful friendly staff, wonderful food. Couldn't ask for more beauty when sitting on the deck with the silhouette of the mountains in the back ground as the sun set. Naturally hot spring swimming pool was refreshing.

Deer Valley Ranch is the perfect spot for a family-style "dude ranch" vacation. The ranch sits in a valley at the foot of the stunningly beautiful and stark Chalk Cliffs.
