Everything about this ranch was incredible: the location, the views, the staff, the FOOD, the activities, the rooms...all was perfect for an awesome family vacation! Only an hour or so from Denver, it was very easy to get there. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and informal. We stayed in the Ranch House, on the top floor, and our room was beautiful! In addition to a large bedroom with a huge comfy bed, it had an equally large living room complete with fireplace, wet bar (copper sink!) and refrigerator, and it was perfectly decorated with "old west" antiques and memorabilia. To top it off, the huge windows all around opened up to the most spectacular views of the mountains, the 'tumbling' river and the rest of the ranch. The food was absolutely delicious - much more than what you would expect from a ranch. Our adult daughter is a very picky eater, and yet they made her a different gourmet chicken dish every night! Fresh veggies, incredible salads, and desserts to die for! So many activities to choose from: of course horseback riding along a multitude of trails with magnificent vistas; fly fishing; white water rafting; skeet shooting; swimming, just to name a few. We have traveled all over the world and Tumbling River Ranch is definitely one of our favorite places - we will certainly go back!!
