I love everything about Deer Valley. The beautiful mountains, Christian staff, family environment, fishing, square dancing, skit night, hiking and the FOOD! Wow. I grew up going as a little girl and now 25 years later not much has changed. There are not many places that do not have keys to the cabins! There is always something to do and something for everyone. My four year old son loved the kids' activities and the freedom of running around with his cousins. DVR is an amazing place. It just gets in your heart and soul. You never want to leave, and when you do you are already planning your next trip back.

I stayed in the lodge with my 13 year-old daughter. The staff, horses, scenery, activities, meals are fantastic. There are so many special moments: the ride to the Alpine Falls; reading from Psalms after reaching the summit of the 13,000 ft hike; the Wrangler breakfasts; the worship time on Sunday morning and evening; the cool mornings and evenings sandwiched around warm mid-days well-suited to relaxing by the pool... We love this place. The people you meet during the week (guests and staff) have a special place in your heart by the week's end. There are very few guests you meet there that are not repeat customers. This was our 2nd visit and I hope there will be many more.

We were given a lovely cabin that slept 8 (even though there were only 2 of us). The views were incredible - mountains all around, trees, snow and deer. The cabin was fully equipped with everything you would need to spend months there. The living room furniture was pretty worn down and uncomfortable but it was all very clean and usable. The lodge offered free hot beverages at all times although at this time of year there was no meal service. the staff was very friendly - as were the ranch digs. Beware that there is no cell service and wi-fi is limited to the office or nearby meeting hall. But really, if you're there in the summer or the winter and want to take part in all of the activities offered, there is no time to plug in the technology! Just enjoy the nature.

Room Tip: You have options to be high on the hill, closer to the lodge or the pool, have a large or small deck, etc. so research your options and try to find the best fit for you.

Deer Valley Ranch is a FABULOUS choice for families. Situated in the "banana belt" (that is, mild climate) of the dramatic Chalk Cliffs and mountain peaks, DVR offers non-stop choices of activities for all ages. Or, when you're ready to relax, you can simply lounge by the pool or sit on the deck and watch the deer graze on the lawn. The food is phenomenal, and the cabins are cozy (you can also stay in the beautiful lodge). They offer horseback riding that's exciting for every level of rider, fishing, hiking, and many specialty outings. I highly recommend signing up for the Ranch package - it's a great deal. We met so many fun, friendly, interesting families - great new friends! The staff is extremely polite, helpful, friendly, and well-trained. (This is the one place where I would trust my kids to participate in the kid's programs). So refreshing to have top-notch service at all levels, in such a relaxed atmosphere. Our family had a GREAT time - we can't wait to go back ASAP!
