Tumbling River Ranch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Everything about this ranch was incredible: the location, the views, the staff, the FOOD, the activities, the rooms...all was perfect for an awesome family vacation! Only an hour or so from Denver, it was very easy to get there. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and informal. We stayed in the Ranch House, on the top floor, and our room was beautiful! In addition to a large bedroom with a huge comfy bed, it had an equally large living room complete with fireplace, wet bar (copper sink!) and refrigerator, and it was perfectly decorated with "old west" antiques and memorabilia. To top it off, the huge windows all around opened up to the most spectacular views of the mountains, the 'tumbling' river and the rest of the ranch. The food was absolutely delicious - much more than what you would expect from a ranch. Our adult daughter is a very picky eater, and yet they made her a different gourmet chicken dish every night! Fresh veggies, incredible salads, and desserts to die for! So many activities to choose from: of course horseback riding along a multitude of trails with magnificent vistas; fly fishing; white water rafting; skeet shooting; swimming, just to name a few. We have traveled all over the world and Tumbling River Ranch is definitely one of our favorite places - we will certainly go back!!

Great ranch in a beautiful location. The vacation was perfect for us and for our kids--wonderful kids activities and staff, and a great range of activities for adults too. Cabins were attractive and food was delicious. All of us can't wait to return.

Our Senior class has been coming to Tumbling River Ranch for over 50 years! Was lucky enough to have made the trip twice! Once as a senior and then again this past June with my daughter's class! The people were definitely a class act and absolutely the best around!! So blessed to have experienced this place not once, but two times! A truly amazing trip and experience to be cherished!!!

Have been here 3 times in the past years and Tumbling River Ranch is just a great place to go to: location is just perfect, activity programme suits everyone and the people are just fantastic: attending, kind, welcoming, as if you come home everytime !

And the overnight camping trip is more then recommendable, also with your teenagers: we had a fabulous trip, great food/BBQ, and amazing stargazing opportunities; the wrangles played guitar and told stories, very entertaining and a great experience for the whole family !

We will definitely go back again !

We have been to other dude ranches, but after our first week at TRR, we have been going back every year. Looking forward to our fourth visit. Our daughter dreams of working there as the wranglers are role models for young boys and girls. The food is what keeps the 'foodie' in our house happy. Our daughter can't stay out of the 'critter pen', and I relish the 3/4 day ride to Hank's Hill on top of a mountain usually with a wrangler and a couple others. Like a good restaurant, the food is good and the location is nice, but the magic is in execution of service. Megan and Scott always have great people that make each year's trip unique and memorable. I am envious of my child's summer vacation dreams. If a dude ranch is on your family's list of family vacations, this is the ranch you can share your dreams of being together (yes it happens - with everyone happy and satisfied) for a week with no TV, computer or iPhones, yet full of drama, communication, adventure and beauty on a first hand basis. Simply said - organic family adventure and fun.

We went to Tumbling River Ranch last summer. It was our third time. The food was wonderful,
The staff could not do enough for us. My granddaughter was afraid of the horses and one of the staff stayed with her and led her around on a pony while we went on a trail ride. They have
activities for all ages. They have two romantic dinners with just the adults , the children eat together. Hoedown is a lot of fun for everyone just one of the many evening activities. We will return when our granddaughter gets a little older.

GREAT VACATION !!!!!!!

Our family has vacationed at RiverTumbling Ranch several times . If you are looking for a vacation that has something for everyone in your family, this is the ranch for you. The children will
have the opportunity to swim, ride horses, hike, fish, river rafting and just about anything they would like to do. The owners and staff are friendly and will do anything they can to help you. Parents can opt to go with their children or do things on their own. The food is outstanding and everything is homemade. We will continue to make this ranch one of our regular vacations. Rooms are very comfortable and setting is pure Rocky Mountain gorgeous. Check their website for much more information.
