“Best Family Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2006

I am on my way back to Colorado this summer, trying to find a dude ranch half as fun as Peaceful Valley, where we stayed last summer. It was a truly memorable vacation. Great kids program, great horses and wranglers. The horse rides were the most beautiful and spectacular I have ever seen. Breakfast on the gorgeous mountaintop! The guided hikes were also fab. Fantastic evening magic show. It is a rustic lodge, but incredibly family friendly. If you have kids, go there! I hope I find someplace half as fun this week on my way to Aspen from Houston. Best vacation imaginable, unless you are seeking plush lux.

Very disappointed with our first experience of a dude ranch. The room we had in the main building was small and cramped and the wooden floors creaked with every step (both our own and those of other guests). The ensuite was tiny and dark but worst of all, the room didn't look as though it had been cleaned, albeit the bedlinen was fresh. There was even mud on the floor from the previous occupier! Did not like the accommodation or the set up. We arrived on a Saturday evening when the ranch was hosting several wedding receptions so we had to traipse luggage through the swimming pool area in order to access our room because the wedding party had blocked off the access from reception. Doesn't give the best first impression. Breakfast was good although you are "seated" by the owners who put name tags on the tables.
