“Great Family Vacation! We will be back!”
Reviewed June 30, 2011

The staff at Wind River is what sets this place apart from the rest. Your every need is taken care of with a sincere heart of service from each and every staff member. Our kids love the kids program. There is something for kids from 1 - 18. The food is to die for!

We love this place and hope we can come back every year!

The amazing staff is what makes this place special. They go out of their way to make sure you have an incredible week. They have wonderful kids programs for all ages. Lots of activities. The food is great of course. You can do as little or as much as you want (I recommend doing lots). Photos of this place do not do justice. You won't want to leave after just one week!

You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful setting than Wind River Ranch, but try to find that setting combined with a genuinely caring, friendly staff who seek to pamper you during your entire stay with great food, fun activities, talented musicians, gentle horses to pet, ride, swimming, hot tub in summer snow, ELK grazing outside your window, dozens of HUMMINGBIRDS to greet you on the porch--did I forget ot mention the DIAMOND-FACE SNOW-CAPPED MOUNTAIN across the way? This was the greatest family vacation ever!

This is the place to reconnect with your family, rest, experience adventure and re-charge for the demands of this life. Many families send their kids away for camp adventures. This ranch is designed to offer the kids AND the parents the adventures of summer camp in a safe, wholesome and GORGEOUS environment. My husband's line of work has taken us to many global destinations, yet Wind River Ranch is the only destination that all four of us agree to when it comes time for planning our next summer break destination. You will not be disappointed. Get your mosey on!

Unbelievable! Didn't know what to expect since we booked our trip just 2 days before. Who knew air could be so clean. Those big things with antlers, elk, are graceful - don't think I had ever seen one before out here in the city. Best part, THE PEOPLE!!!! The WRR staff as well as the guests are truly what makes this vacation memorable. We have made lifelong friends and if we could choose our family then we found them all at WRR! Better yet, the kids were able to experience freedom. Horseback riding, fishing, playing in the dirt, basketball and just running from dawn till dusk. Where else can kids do this? Oh...and the newly renovated pool and hot tub are bliss. You haven't had a vacation until you've stayed at WRR. Free life-changing revelation is just thrown in for free!

My husband and I live in Estes Park but we decided to do a couple's retreat at Wind River Ranch. It was so amazing to us ... to be so close to home yet feel so far away. We were able to spend quality time with each other without the distractions of phones, TVs, and everyday life. The couple's conference, lead by Pastor Jeff Hutcheon and his wife, Sherri, gave us life skills, direct from the Word of God, to make our good marriage great. Horseback riding through Rocky Mountain National Park was beautiful - the food was some of the best we've had in Estes Park. Staff were polite and friendly. Accommodations were clean and rustic (which is the way it should be for a dude ranch). We were blessed by the people we met and the time we spent together.

Wind River Ranch is amazing! The property is beautiful, the staff is incredible, the accommodations are perfect...I could go on and on. Let's just say we're already signed up for next year...our 13th family vacation at Wind River Ranch. It's truly the closest thing to heaven I've experienced on planet earth. God will bless you through this place and these wonderful people!
