My sister and I visited Vista Verde Guest Ranch (VVR) for the first time from 2-8-2015 through 2-13-2015 as our first ever brother/sister vacation. We stayed in the Farwell cabin. I'm happy to report that we didn't end up killing each other, and both had a wonderful time! First off, I had read numerous reviews for VVR before booking, both...

Nate- Thank you so much for the kind words. We had a ball with you two at the ranch, and are so glad that you got to make you first brother-sister trip to the ranch! We'll keep in touch, and hope to see you both again. Cheers, Stephanie

My family stayed at the Vista Verde Guest Ranch this past summer. In short, it was the best vacation our family has ever had. The Ranch is consistently rated top 1 or 2 in he country, and for a reason. If you like a vacation that has potential for both activity and relaxation, which a custom mix for everyone in...

My husband and I were looking for a winter vacation and came across Vista Verde while searching extensively online. I stumbled upon it, actually, and then read the glowing Trip Advisor reviews and knew I'd found the place. We were not disappointed! From the day we made our reservations (January visit), it was smooth sailing. A member of the staff...

This is truly such a special vacation. It isn't one thing, rather the perfect blend of people, destination, and first class amenities. Such a talent for making you feel like you are home again, cared for and about. The whole ranch is gorgeous, luxurious, accommodating and warm. The food is amazing, seriously, delicious and varied. Activities are fun and reach...

I did one of the Cattle Drive weeks for adults-only awhile back, and am just getting around to reviewing. Even though we were never able to find a cow despite bushwacking our way through the mountains for an entire day, it was a great experience (we teased our wrangler relentlessly about it for the rest of the trip, too). The...

My partner and I visited Vista Verde in the fall after driving from Vegas to finish off a fantastic holiday, and wow did it just keep on getting better! The ranch is beautiful and the welcome was warm and friendly. Speaking to Ben (the manager) over a cold beer on the first night, he quickly put my mind at rest...

My husband and I decided we wanted an active, but relaxing vacation to celebrate this milestone. I remembered the fun we had horseback riding on our honeymoon in Maui and began looking at guest ranches, but we also wanted to be pampered on our special trip. Thank goodness we found Vista Verde! We saw only positive reviews here and thought...

Wonderful high-end and clean accommodations. The staff was outstanding - from the initial email contact, the meals and activities, right down to helping us load the car for our 5:30am departure. Trail riding, yoga, happy hours, fly fishing, hiking, hot tubbing at the cabin with beautiful views. Lovely in the Fall. I cannot wait to go back. Be prepared to...

Hands down the best place I have ever visited. Wonderful cabin. Food. Company and people. We stayed in the Farwell cabin for anniversary. Very romantic! There is a lot of activities to choose from. We did horseback riding sessions and loved the rides and fall views. Everything was perfect and would not change a thing.

This was my second visit to Vista Verde and it was just as fun as the first visit. The staff is amazing and have a 'can do' attitude. While I was there for the horseback riding, they do have many other activities. Specifically, here are the high points: 1) I stayed in Gilpin in the lodge - it was a...
