Sylvan dale Guest Ranch
 

Named "Best Family Vacation" by Frommer's Colorado guidebook and rated among the “top ten Colorado Dude Ranches” by True West Magazine, Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch offers year ‘round outdoor adventure. During the ten weeks of summer (mid-June thru 3rd week in August) we host six-night dude ranch vacation packages, plus groups on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. During the rest of the year (fourth week in August through mid-June), we host overnight conferences, retreats and family reunions, group events, business meetings, dinners, receptions and picnics, bed & breakfast stays, holiday packages and special events, and weddings.
 
Conveniently located just one hour from Denver in the Colorado foothills near Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, Sylvan Dale’s 3200-acre Dude Ranch and Retreat Center is nestled along the banks of Colorado's beautiful Big Thompson River. Trophy trout fly fishing, nature experiences, tennis courts, swimming pool, and other activities await you.

Sylvan Dale is an historic working horse and cattle ranch specializing in Natural Beef sales.  Guests go on cattle drives and cattle roundups, trail rides, overnight pack trips, take horseback riding lessons and play “Gymkhana” games on horseback. So c’mon and saddle up, discover your “inner cowboy,” and experience the old-fashioned family hospitality and cowboy culture of the historic American West.
