Guest Capacity


A Luxury Ranch

Just north of the renowned ski resort town of Steamboat Springs, CO in the Elk River valley lies Vista Verde Ranch. A luxury ranch by definition, we take pride in the upscale accommodations and facilities, the amazing culinary experience our chefs offer guests, and the variety of activities that guests can choose from during their stay in summer, fall, or winter. However, it is the relationships between the staff and the guests that make the VVR experience so memorable, and the people are the heart and soul of this place. Coming to Vista Verde is like coming home…..but with a staff of engaging folks taking care of your every need!

The hardest part of being a guest at Vista Verde is choosing what to do each day, and accepting you won’t be able to fit it all in. In all seasons there is a diverse offering ranging from highly active to more leisurely options. Push cows around in the cattle driving clinic or sit down and relax on a paddleboard at a high alpine lake? Burn enough calories on a backcountry ski to warrant two desserts at dinner or relax as the chef pours wines during the wine tasting? The choices are hard indeed!
