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.

Sylvan Dale is an historic working horse and cattle ranch (our all-natural Heart-J beef is delicious and available for purchase). Guests go on cattle drives and cattle roundups, trail rides, and 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.

During the ten weeks of summer (mid-June thru August) we host six-night dude ranch vacations, 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 and retreats as well as family reunions, group events, business meetings, dinners, receptions, picnics, bed & breakfast stays, holiday packages, 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, swimming, and other activities await you.

For folks who care about nature and the environment, you will appreciate our green philosophy and sustainable practices. At Sylvan Dale, we pride ourselves on being good stewards of our land, our animals, and the earth.

BEAUTIFUL & AFFORDABLE WEDDINGS

A romantic and beautiful wedding site, Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch is renowned throughout the area for our scenic setting in the Rocky Mountain foothills. You'll love the tranquil beauty of the ranch and the rustic elegance of our reception venues. And, the friendly and professional staff at our ranch have years of experience planning and hosting weddings and receptions.

Engagement Parties and Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties are held here, too! Coming soon - Elopement Packages and BYO Weddings!

CAREFREE GROUP AND CORPORATE EVENTS

Whether you are planning a family reunion, business retreat, group meeting, company picnic or a celebration banquet, our experienced staff is eager to help. We pride ourselves on our caring, personal service and Western hospitality.

Our conference facilities are easily accessible - just an hour and 15 minutes northwest of Denver, between Loveland and Estes Park. With our high-speed Internet access, you’ll be able to stay in touch with the world “beyond the ridge.” Yet here in our secluded valley, you will find yourself in a special place away from the neon mainstream, where the sounds of the river and the smell of pines help you focus on what’s important for your group event.

While you’re here, don’t forget to leave some time for outdoor adventures. We’ll take you on a horse-drawn hayride, introduce you to a trophy trout, lead you on a trail ride, treat you to a game of tennis and a swim in our heated pool, let you relax beside the river, or even teach you to chase a cow on horseback. You can’t get that at a downtown hotel!

We want to help make your next event the best ever. Let us know when you’re ready to start!

* Retreats & Meetings Perfect for business groups, associations, churches. Meeting space for up to 150 people; overnight capacity up to 50 double, 30 single.
