About Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch

Loveland, CO

Families will have a honkey-tonk good time at the Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch. This resort is a historic working cattle ranch in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Guests can stay in cabins, guest houses and two-story bunk houses. Bunk houses are more spacious for larger families, while guest houses feature kitchens. All-inclusive rates include meals, which feature natural beef and organic foods from the ranch. Sylvan Dale hosts the Buckaroo Youth Program, which provides a range of activities for kids and teens, including horseback riding, rock climbing and white water rafting. Parents can join in, too. There is an outdoor swimming pool, a hot tub and a "cowboy pool" made of a huge metal bucket on the premises. The ranch also provides hayrides, wildlife walks and fishing excursions. Loveland, Colo., is nearby, offering a myriad of restaurants and entertainment.
