This was our second Christmas break to stay at DVR in the last four years. A perfect getaway for quality family time for us with our adult children and grand son. We love the beauty around us and the solitude and peace. No TV's or cell phones to distract from the experience. Plenty of activities close by (snowshoe trails, skiing,...

My wife and I wanted to get away for a few days before Thnaksgiving just to be together and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Spent last weekend at the Ranch...it was a neat old fashion getaway. No TV's, No Radio's, No Phones...Wow. Nice hot spring pools (2), spa's, and sauna. Also, depending upon the time of the year, there is horseback riding, hiking, biking, horseshoes, ping pong, other games and a large game room and meeting rooms. Specialize in large parties, but smaller parties...

Beautiful drive and great get-away! Places to hike from the ranch, very helpful friendly staff, wonderful food. Couldn't ask for more beauty when sitting on the deck with the silhouette of the mountains in the back ground as the sun set. Naturally hot spring swimming pool was refreshing. The cabins were very clean and takes you back to more simple...

Deer Valley Ranch is the perfect spot for a family-style "dude ranch" vacation. The ranch sits in a valley at the foot of the stunningly beautiful and stark Chalk Cliffs. Deer and rabbits wander through the ranch in the morning and late afternoon and sit right outside your western style cabin. The cabins are comfortable and charmingly decorated in the...

We chose a wonderful cabin for my husband and me along with our daughter and her two teen boys - Turret. Pretty much off by itself but near ping pong and the marvelous pool. My daughter and her boys went horseback riding two mornings - the 63 horses are beautiful - well cared for and just as they should be!...
