Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch is now accepting reservations for business retreats and meetings!

“Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch is always an incredible location in which to hold our Retreats.  I have had the pleasure of leading Retreats at Sylvan Dale on a monthly basis for six years, and yearly for the last 12 years or more. The beauty of the Ranch in Colorado’s foothills, amazing friendliness of the staff, and warm, comfortable meeting areas always attract us back to this wonderful place, year after year. We have Reservations/deposit to return to Sylvan Dale for a Retreat in April 2021. Susan Jessup and her incredible team are committed to providing us with a high quality, safe experience. We are convinced in these new times that the Ranch will be able to provide us with an Amazing environment with plenty of social distancing, hand sanitizers, fresh air, safety in food preparation, and warm, Western hospitality. Regarding cleaning protocols, we anticipate that public places will be cleaned daily, and fresh linens and bathroom cleaning will be supplied. We know that Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch will closely follow COVID-related CDC and Colorado Department of Health Guidelines for dining/food preparation, serving, and cleaning. We rest assured that our retreat will be enjoyable and safe for all participants. Sylvan Dale is certainly a fantastic Crown-Jewel experience for our Retreat participants from around the nation. We look forward to our return!”

Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch

Conveniently located in the Rocky Mountain foothills, our 3,200-acre ranch is nestled along the banks of the beautiful Big Thompson River—just 7 miles west of Loveland, Colorado, the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. A little over an hour’s drive from Denver or Boulder, 40 minutes from Greeley or Longmont, and a short drive from Loveland or Fort Collins. Traveling to Sylvan Dale is a hassle-free commute for you and your guests.

Established values are reflected in the beauty of the grounds, the well-cared-for cattle and horses, the surrounding hills protected by conservation easements, and eco-friendly practices. Over 300 businesses have held their company retreat, meeting, training, 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!!”

Saddle up for a horse riding adventureroping lessons anyone? Rally your team to the challenge course, try your hand at trapshooting or professionally guided fly-fishing, or mount up for an overnight pack trip into the back country (for the more adventurous). A wagon ride followed by an evening campfire is a great close to a successful day.

The Jessup family along with dedicated staff will anticipate your needs and accommodate with ease. With decades of event planning expertise, our professional personnel know the importance of details, efficiency, and flexibility to create an experience you’ll appreciate.

“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.”
