“Thank You!”

I just wanted to say thank you for honoring the certificate and the opportunity to stay at the Ranch. Everything was excellent from your wonderful staff, the room and the quite/ peaceful surrounding of the Ranch. We enjoyed our time there so much that we plan on coming back and hopefully soon. We will also be recommending the Ranch to family and friends as well. Again, Thank You!

“If it wasn’t for Sarah C… we would have Eloped”

I can’t even explain how amazing having our wedding here was. I honestly didn’t want the night to end! First, Sarah C. was absolutely PHENOMENAL to work with. If it wasn’t for her, I probably would have gotten overwhelmed and we would have run off and eloped in Vegas, but probably invited Sarah because she is a wonderful, fun person. Read more…

“A Magical Place…”

A magical place for sure. Easy to get but hard to leave! The staff was right on target and the grounds allow you to be who you want to be offering a dozen options to explore. Ge Moore was easily the most accommodating hospitality professional I have encountered (and I have planned and/or attended hundreds of events). Our event was exactly what we had planned.

“The absolute best vacation experience in my life!!”

My 83 year old aunt has wanted to go to a Guest Ranch for years so my sister, cousin and I took her to Sylvan Dale. I’ve been on multiple cruises, I flow to wonderful island resorts but this was better than anything I’ve ever done! This place is amazing! I live in Colorado and didn’t know it was just about 2 hours away, nestled in spectacular landscape in the front range mountains. It felt like all the staff and the other guests were family. I hated to leave them and have thought of nothing else for the last 5 days. The facilities are first rate! The cabin we stayed in was spotless and smelled like flowers every day, clean and the best set up for my family to be together comfortably at all times; seconds away from the stable and the main facilities. It felt like home. The main lodge was likewise. Western music greeted us softly each meal and I lived my cowboy dreams every single one! Read more…

“A Truly Magical Place”

I was here for five days and did not want to leave, it was truly one of the best weeks of my life. I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel a lot and found this Dude Ranch vacation on the top of my favorite vacations. The owners and the ENTIRE staff treated me like family the moment I arrived and their genuine care and concern for all their guests was something I have not experienced, superb customer service. Read more…

“Valentine’s Day Brunch Very Enjoyable”

I wanted to say again how much we enjoyed yesterday’s Valentine’s Day brunch. The food was delicious, and there were more dishes than I could sample (even if I hadn’t gone back for seconds of the smoked salmon, macaroni and cheese–the best I’ve had in my life!–and chocolate fountain). D, too, was very enthusiastic; and we’re still talking about it today. I thought you’d like to know. 🙂

“Delicious Thanksgiving Feast!”

Really impressed at the variety of the Thanksgiving feast. Delicious! The staff was friendly, compassionate and very kind. I felt like a member of the Jessup Family.”
