A Peaceful and Beautiful Setting

Nestled in the majestic mountains of Colorado, Wind River Ranch offers a peaceful and beautiful setting for you and your family to enjoy a restful getaway from the norm. We strive to take care of all the details, so that you have plenty of time to focus on relaxing and renewing in an uplifting, Christian environment. You’re able to relish in days filled with tasteful meals, scenic views, exciting activities, and intentional family time. We want to offer you the chance to rest, or be as active as you desire. We want to offer you the chance to vacation in a setting surrounded by God’s creation. We want to offer you the chance to reconnect with God, yourself and your family. We want you at Wind River Ranch!

Wind River Ranch offers its guests much more than horseback riding vacation. We will set up your tee time at the Estes Park 18 or 9-hole golf course (just 5 miles away), have a special pizza party for all the guest kids and staff so all the adults can enjoy a special dinner in the dining hall and be.

Each day offers a myriad of activities that your entire family will enjoy while leaving plenty of time to lounge by the resort pool and hot tub, listen to our featured Christian guest speaker, read a book on your porch, rest in on of the ranch hammocks or even take a well-deserved nap.

It is your vacation – why not enjoy it?

This Colorado guest ranch is an answer for families who want a vacation where they can rest, relax, renew, and have a blast doing so. So many times moms and dads come back from a family vacation emotionally and physically worn out.

Here at Wind River Ranch, we specialize in providing a flexible program that caters to each family member’s needs during a vacation. Parents don’t have to use their vacation time to decide and plan out activities, transport family members to events, or decide what restaurant appeals to everyone’s taste buds, or to secure a reservation. Here, your whole family will gather around a table together for 17 meals in a week. This is more than most families get in 2 months’ time. The giggling and sharing all the stories and adventures of the day will bring smiles and memories that last a lifetime.
