  • 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 »

  • We attended a wedding. First - as others have said - the ride in and out is rough. We were in shuttles and it was a rough ride. But so worth it. We had rain, snow and sun all the same day. A beautiful...  more »

  • This place is heaven. I could not believe the view. The drive there is beautiful. We rented a canoe and it was fun.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Absolutely wonderful experience getting married up at Piney River Ranch last August. Brittany and Monique were incredibly helpful, friendly, and truly welcoming. They answered so many questions leading up to the ceremony and helped to facilitate a great experience on the day of. It's a fun and phenomenal venue for special occasions or just for a beautiful day trip!! (If you're planning a wedding up there I highly recommend you use a company like mountain express to shuttle guests...we did not do this and some of our guests got lost driving home and a bus we had hired got stuck coming down the hill from piney. All were okay but it definitely made for a slightly more exciting night than had been anticipated.)
