We just returned from our first ever week at Wind River Ranch and are still struggling to find the words to adequately describe it! We have never been to a place that's so full of love and peace...but also FUN! Our entire family went and all of the kids aged 2 1/2-13 had a blast. We made lasting friendships and...

This is our second time coming to the ranch. I can't even do justice with words what a incredible week we have experienced. Make no mistake, the love flowing from this place is a direct reflection of the God they serve. Christ is the pillar on which everything you experience at Wind River Ranch is built. While there are many...

My family and I have been going for atleast nine years. Every year I'm crying at the end of the week. The place is so personal. The staff are amazing. I, as a teen, love going down to the barn and visting the Wranglers. My little sister, who is nine, can walk out the door and sprint off to meet...

Wind River Ranch is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. It is nestled between Long's Peak and Twin Sisters, in a beautiful Valley. My Husband and I were amazed by the incredible staff, great food, our lovely cabin and the best horses! Our cabin was a deluxe, 2 bedroom cabin that was very clean and...

This was our 3rd trip to Wind River Ranch. The best family experience ever! Great staff who really loved the kids, terrific food, awesome location, and a fun time getting to know the other families. The management is always available and looking to serve. To top it off, the horse program is second to none! Absolutely the best wranglers anywhere!...

We keep coming back every summer because we all love it! My kids love the horses. My husband loves the food, fun, and atmosphere. I love the horses, scenery, and not having to cook or clean for a week! The ranch is so safe and my kids are so familiar with the property now that we don't worry about where...

We've had 2 vacations at WRR (summer of 2008, when kids were 3 & 1, and summer of 2012, when kids are 7 & 5). Both times were truly wonderful family vacations! The folks at Wind River Ranch could not be more accommodating, gracious, Christ-centered, and welcoming. Especially with young kids, this is a great family experience because there are...

This was our sixth year at Wind River Ranch (WWR). I love this place! There is something special about a staff (that is mostly volunteers) who care for guests and their children. While each year I continue to see improvements in the accommodations as the stewards spend the winters updating bathrooms and other cabin amenities, the biggest changes I have...
