We find that "self-catering" works best for our family, and Deer Valley Ranch, in the wintertime, is nearly perfect for this. The kitchens are all very well appointed, the cabins are cozy. I love the staff; they are friendly, flexible, and helpful. It's a good base for skiing at either Monarch or Cooper, both roughly an hour's drive from the...

Stayed in a cabin over the thanksgiving holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was so quiet and relaxing. We instantly regretted not staying another night or two or three longer. The cabin was clean and well equipped with towels and linens. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back.

We rented 3 cabins, went to the hot tub and the hot springs, had cozy fires, cooked an early Thanksgiving meal, sang, talked and renewed. The staff, as always, is very helpful and ready with suggestions. This is...

Awesome place to stay, nights cooled down and had great views of the mountains, sky, and stars. The cabins were very cozy, comfortable, and felt like home! I enjoyed the privacy of the cabin due to the fact they are spaced apart from the next. I also am very grateful that Deer Valley Ranch allows pets. I am looking forward...

Can't go wrong with Deer Valley for any occasion. Highly recommended in the Fall when crowds are less and mountains are at their most beautiful. We went for the fishing which is excellent but the mountain horse back rides also are very rewarding.

Excellent vacation experience. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The horseback riding options were worth the trip. Plus there are lots of options if riding is not your priority. Beautiful setting. The cabins are spacious and very comfortable.

“We stayed in the Pitkin Cabin and had a wonderful view of the Chalk Cliffs and surrounding mountain ranges.”

“In the lodge, rooms upstairs tend to be quieter. Cabins are great for independent family time - allow you to cook for yourself.”
