Meetings and Retreats

Business Meetings & Corporate Retreats

Host your next meeting or retreat at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch – an inspiring location that creates memories of a lifetime!

Our 3,200 acre historic property has offered Legendary Western Hospitality since 1946. Family owned and operated, the Jessup family along with dedicated staff have continued the spirit of flexible, genuine service so you will feel at home while you’re away from the office.

Sylvan Dale offers a beautiful meeting space, comfortable lodging and room to roam. Activities, team building and some of the best home cookin’ around!

If you’re looking for a unique option away from the office and the same old hotel ballroom, plan your next  business retreat at Sylvan Dale – excellent for private corporate meetings and strategic planning sessions.

Complimentary amenities include game courts with tennis, pickle ball, basketball, shuffle board and 4-square. Challenge your colleagues to volleyball or horseshoes. Be sure to check out the Game Room for billiards, ping pong, foosball and darts.

Private Events

In most cases the ranch will be yours with no other events while you’re here. Privacy and un-paralleled customer service create an experience rarely found these days.

Whether you are looking for a focused no-frills meeting, a high level executive retreat, or simply to unwind…. our classic elegance and fresh mountain air will promote productive problem solving, and be a catalyst for your team’s creative ideas!

“Southern hospitality met with western values made Sylvan Dale an excellent venue for our corporate retreat. The setting of the river combined with the meeting space was just what our team needed to break away from our traditional thinking. Our management team was able to connect at a personal level at the riverside campfire at night. We will definitely be back.”

KERI KINGCEO, Triple Crown Sports

With decades of event planning expertise our professional personnel know the importance of details, efficiency, and flexibility to create an experience that matches your vision and goals. Our seasoned staff will deliver seamlessly.

Established values are reflected in our staff, the beauty of the grounds, the well cared for cattle and horses, the surrounding hills protected by conservation easements, eco-friendly practices, and comfortable facilities. Over 300 businesses have held their company retreat, meeting, holiday party or picnic at Sylvan Dale.

Hands down the best facility we have ever had for a team meeting! We have stayed in hotels across North America, and all of them are a distant second in service to your staff. I would love to duplicate your culture for all of our 3,000 hotels. Truly an amazing place!!”
