My husband and I were privileged to be guests at Lost Valley while visiting our son who has been on staff there for the last two summers. "Momma and Daddy, you have to come visit so you'll understand when I talk about what a special place Lost Valley Ranch is," he has been asking. It is a special place where all ages are accommodated and served. Many guests had children there who loved participating in the programs specifically designed for their age group. I was a new horseback rider and the wranglers very patiently helped me with my riding, never making me feel stupid. I rode daily, sometimes twice a day, finally getting the hang of 'posting a trot.' We particularly enjoyed getting to know both staff and other guests and sitting around after meals visiting and sharing our stories. Accommodations and food were excellent and for the non-riders there were plenty of opportunities for hiking and wandering walking trails. I'm trying to figure out how I can take the rest of my family for a visit...so worth it!

Room Tip: If you are not up for a climb to your room, ask for a room closer to the lodge.

We are so thankful to have you as our guest and we love you grand kids as much as they love the ranch! Thanks for being more than a guest to us, but part of our ranch family. We look forward to seeing you on our side of the cattle guard in the near future.

I've traveled to Lost Valley many times over the years in the Spring and Fall months and every visit was better than the last one. This was my first Summer visit with my Granddaughter. The staff was the best, food the best, accommodations the best, every aspect was top notch. I highly recommend you visit the Valley. And, oh ya, the riding was the best.

Jim,

It was great meeting your granddaughter and even better having you both here for your first summer on the ranch together. We appreciate your kind words and we are looking forward to the next visit. We'll keep the fire lit for you and keep looking for the swim fins.

Well it has been 2 years since we have been to Lost Valley Ranch. My family and I went Memorial weekend 2012. We had such an amazing time, still to this day we talk about it. My son at the time was 6 years old. He misses his horse, Hobbes and wishes to go back one day. They have a great kids club that my son loved also.. he would come back with his face all messed up with soot with stories of 3 finger Jake. He LOVED it!!! My husband and I enjoyed everything the ranch offered but my husbands favorite was the horseback riding. I enjoy taking photographs and hiking! You totally feel you are in the middle of nowhere -- in a lost valley. I recommend Lost Valley Ranch to all!! One day we will be back!

Thank you for choosing to spend a vacation with your family at Lost Valley Ranch. It is wonderful to hear the stories of your son's experience with the Children's Program and 3 Finger Jake's Cave as well as the fun that your husband had riding horses. One of the many great things about the ranch is the fact that it is in the middle of nowhere. We believe that getting away and crossing our cattle guard brings rest, relaxation and refreshment that we are all in need of. We hope to see you back in the "lost valley" soon!

Its has been years since I have been to Lost Valley Ranch (8 years I think), but this place is wonderful in every way. Great food, great horseback riding, wonderful accommodations, friendly, helpful staff, awesome for kids of all ages. They have so many activities and things to do too. Fishing, horseback riding (if you become friends with the wranglers, they might let you help feed the horses), jacuzzi, pool, and more. There is so much fun stuff to do, you literally fall into bed at night and sleep like a baby. Did I mention its absolutely beautiful too? The scenery is amazing, especially when you get on horseback and the wranglers take you to the top of the rock. You don't have to ride horses either or be a horse person, there is plenty of things to do or not do at all and just relax.

There's no place I'd rather be. I've been to LVR with groups of kids at least a dozen times. There are so many new opportunities. Whether it's sitting around the fireplace while it snows, sunrise hikes or afternoon horseback rides, it's perfect. The cabins are always clean and very comfortable. The food is incredible. But the staff is over the top, always making everyone feel special and welcome.
