Great environment, wonderful views, variety of activities. My granddaughter loved horseback riding, met some other teenagers to hang out with. Upon returning her mother told me that I had set the bar high--that our trip together to DVR was the highlight of my granddaughter's summer!

This was our fourth stay at Deer Valley Ranch and each times feels like a family reunion. From the moment we walked in the office to check in, we were greeted by name and a hearty "Welcome back! Good to see you again!" that pretty well sums up what Deer Valley is for us. The attitude of everyone working there...

This was our first visit to Deer Valley Ranch, but hopefully, not our last! We only stayed 3 nights, so our kids were terribly disappointed not to be able to finish out the week. However, we packed in as much as we could, and enjoyed every minute of it (horseback riding, hiking, teen activities, square dance)! Great food, super friendly...
