Disconnect from the Ordinary Experience Extraordinary!

At our 3,200-acre “world beyond the ridge,” you can plan for an exclusive company retreat, have a fabulous wedding, experience a Dude Ranch family vacation, enjoy a holiday party or a summer picnic, and much much more.

We invite you to disconnect from your everyday life to experience the beauty of Sylvan Dale. It is your opportunity to settle back and gain a fresh perspective. Discover new adventures in the beauty of our valley. Reach beyond your comfort zone. Interact with friends, family, and associates.

You’ll find both comfort and convenience in our gathering rooms, and lots of room to roam in our outdoor gathering spaces.

Our cozy cabins and friendly guest houses promise a good night’s rest. Our indoor and outdoor dining facilities complement our homemade Colorado cuisine, and our recreational facilities offer you the opportunity to engage in interactive fun. Sylvan Dale can help you create lasting memories.

The Heritage gathering room features a hickory wood floor and a vaulted log ceiling. Picture windows look out to our beautiful gardens and across to Eagle Ridge. The large stone fireplace makes even this spacious room cozy.

Relax on the wooden porch reminiscent of the Old West, or visit the Game Room, just a short walk away. A heated swimming pool (seasonal) and game courts are right outside. The Heritage is beautifully suited to a variety of functions, be it a business meeting, celebration dinner, wedding reception, or an ol’ time hoedown!

Internet, Wi-Fi and other Geeky Stuff

Although the Sylvan Dale experience allows you to escape distractions, we respect your need to “keep connected” with the world “beyond the ridge!”

Complimentary wireless Internet is available throughout the main ranch grounds, including lodging rooms.

The Cotner College Room in the Heritage is available as a small, casual breakout space. Check at the Front Desk for other available business services.

Cell phone service is patchy. Verizon has a strong signal in the Heritage; AT&T is a little trickier. One guest identified a post on our pasture fence with a great signal that also comes with a great view!

But seriously, our Verizon cell phone booster provides three simultaneous lines of service. AT&T has good reception at our entry gate. Sprint, T-Mobile, and other carriers probably require a road trip into town, seven miles to the east.

Our house phone in the lobby is available 24/7 with complimentary international or domestic long distance along with local calls.

If your visit with us calls for any A/V equipment, we appreciate knowing ahead of time. Our extensive equipment inventory can accommodate most any request. If we don’t have it, we’ll get it!

When you plan your next outdoor event, think of Sylvan Dale! You can count on easy access to our picturesque mountain setting, a little over an hour from Denver, minutes from Loveland, and a short drive from Fort Collins, Longmont, and Greeley.

With our renowned staff, facilities, amenities, activities, and delicious food, we are one of Colorado’s most sought-out destinations. Come experience our legendary hospitality!
