A great place to take your family. It is a fun, faith filled ranch located in Estes Parks. If you're looking for a place to hang your hat for a few days, this is it. The food, the rooms, the horses, the view are all top notch. The leaders and counselors know how to provide excellent service.

A wonderful place to stay with great food, amazing amenities, awesome adventures and wonderful people that treat you like family. Can't put into words how special my experience was at WRR. I found peace at this place and the solitude I experience was life changing.

everything was outstanding. Beautiful setting, we were treated like royalty. They look for any way to please you. It was a week of being unplugged and reconnect with one's self, family, and an eclectic mix of like-minded people.

This is a special place for our family. It's gorgeous, the food is fantastic (and they handle special diet requests amazingly well), and the staff are top notch. My daughter rode horses all week, and we all had a fantastic time. It is such a gift to let your kids be free, knowing they're always safe. A week here will...

My husband is a wounded warrior, and they invited our family to stay a week at the ranch. I can't express our gratitude, or the magnitude of the blessing of Wind River Ranch. Amazing, devoted staff, great food, perfect setting. Horseback, kayaking, fishing, social activities, trained childcare. My son is special needs, and they were so amazing with him. Like...

This is the place to go if you're looking for a getaway to reconnect with the family. The service is second to none. There is so much to do for the whole family and the staff has it all prepared so the guest need only show up for the activity. The food is top-rate. I'd never expect it to be...
