  • As we went up the mountain, we saw several outfitters and their hunter clients camped to the side of the road, so we knew it would be a place to view the wilderness.  more »
  • Drove up to do a day hike and what an amazing view. We did go into the Ranch store/restaurant to use restroom and bought the kids some snacks/ice cream. Pretty rustic up there; seems like it would be ...  more »

  • It's a beautiful lake so peaceful is like 30min to 45 minutes from Vail and they closed at 6pm but you still can get in after 6pm with out paying there are some cabins there and a Restaurant and hikes is just so beautiful!!!
  • This place is heaven. I could not believe the view. The drive there is beautiful. We rented a canoe and it was fun.
  • Brittany was such a pleasure to work with and has become a friend after having our wedding at the one and only, beautiful Piney River Ranch. She was always quick to respond to all of our inquiries during our planning process. It is always great to work with someone you WANT to work with. From the moment we met her on our first trip up to Piney, to the evening spent tasting food at Cowboy Catering, all the way to and through our big day, she was there to help and guide us through the process. Always willing to go the extra mile to make sure our wedding day was perfect and exactly how we envisioned it being, she came through every time! We look forward to seeing Brittany every time we are back in Vail! Brittany gets 5 stars! Piney River Ranch, although a trek to get to is more than worth the drive! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone looking to get married in the Rockies!
  • Beautiful Venue for a Wedding. We were there for my wife's brother's wedding several years ago. The drive up in a minivan (rented due to having multiple children and senior citizens) was entertaining and we all hurried to rush back down before the sun set as I wouldn't want to do the drive at night but the location was spectacular.
  • Awesome place to hike and canoe. The views are beautiful and the food in the restaurant is really good too. It is worth the slow drive up the mountain (about 45 minutes). I would definitely go back.
