About Us:

Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch is an authentic working horse and cattle ranch located on 3200 acres in the Rocky Mountain foothills west of Loveland, Colorado. Family owned and operated by the Jessup Family since 1946, Sylvan Dale provides a natural setting for dude ranch vacations, destination weddings, corporate meetings & retreats.

We also offer a wide variety of additional services like private meetings, holiday parties, picnics, reunions, family vacations, bed & breakfast, trophy fishing, horse riding, and other exciting outdoor adventures.

Guests go on cattle drives and cattle roundups, trail rides, and overnight pack trips, take horseback riding lessons and play “Gymkhana” games on horseback, and experience the old-fashioned family hospitality and cowboy culture of the historic American West.

Named "Best Family Vacation" by Frommer's Colorado guidebook and rated among the "Top Ten Colorado Dude Ranches" by True West Magazine, and Cowboys & Indians' Best Of The West, June 2011.

Conveniently located just one hour from Denver in the Colorado foothills near Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, Sylvan Dale’s 3200-acre Dude Ranch and Retreat Center is nestled along the banks of Colorado's beautiful Big Thompson River.

For you good folks who care about nature and the environment, you'll appreciate our green philosophy and passion for sustainable practices. At Sylvan Dale, we pride ourselves on being excellent stewards of our land, livestock, and resident wildlife.
