Vista Verde provides an amazing, luxury guest ranch experience. It's not as cowboy-centric as a dude ranch as they provide many "new-west" activities such as fly fishing, mountain biking, etc. This was our family's second year there, and while I could write on and on about the experience, I'll focus on two points. First, our family rarely repeats trips, so...

Wow, will you come write for me for our marketing materials? That was such a nice review, and you hit so many aspects of the ranch with such great words? Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers. Your family is such a hoot, and we really enjoyed having you come back again this summer....

Everything was wonderful, clean cabins, lovely people, great horses, wonderful food. We went last year and this year brought our daughter's family - two kids 7 and2 1/2, They don't let the little one ride, but made her stay enjoyable in every other way! The 7 year old just plain didn't want to go home - ever!

Thank you for sharing your ranch experience with our potential guests! Having your family at the ranch was a wonderful way to kick off our summer season. Although we don't normally allow children under 6, it worked out well with your family being so willing to take turns to watch her during the day, and have your special dinners with...

This was our 2nd year at the ranch and the top 2 vacations we have ever been on. The staff at VVR really knows how to take care of the guests.

It is rare that my husband and I visit the same place twice. Actually, our trip back to VVR this year was the first time we visited the same place twice. To be honest, we were a little nervous that it wouldn't be as wonderful the 2nd time around. We could not have been more wrong. It was even more...

Where to begin? We knew we would have a good time, but little did we know that it would be a life changing experience for all of us!

Eleven of us descended upon the ranch...

I've stayed here 5 times and each time just gets better. I go for the wonderfully trained horses, beautiful scenery and warm welcoming staff. Can't say enough about how solicitous they are, making sure I'm comfortable and safe on my horse, I go for the riding, but other guests enjoy mountain biking, hiking, and fly fishing in pristine lakes.

The ranch is well taken care of with lovely rooms - clean and well appointed - really felt amenities were top notch. The food was absolutely outstanding - every meal was delightful and no way you could not find something you liked; generous portions. The small number of guests makes this a very social environment and staff intermingle with guests...
