Wind river ranch was wonderful! We were overwhelmed ten minutes after pulling onto the property. The staff were absolutely amazing and treated us like royalty. The food was incredible and all the horse back riding and activities were just what we needed! I highly recommend wind river ranch!

We went to the ranch for a Pastors retreat. I had never been to Colorado and was so looking forward to it. It just so happened to be the week of more rain in one week than the entire year.
