  • In summer time, this is a great place to visit. 40 minutes away from Vail with different walking trails and wonderful views. Excellent place for picnics and family/friends gatherings. 
  • Fun! This place is definitely beautiful. The road in/out is not as bad as others have said, but it is not easy either. The lake, surrounding mountains, and fall colors were truly spectacular. We staye...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.)
  • Our daughter's wedding was held at Piney River Ranch at the end of August, 2015. As she is our only child, we had no idea what was involved in planning a wedding. Monique , the GM, held our hands and walked us through the entire journey. Her guidance was a gift that did not carry a price tag, but was invaluable, none the less! The day was beautiful, the food was incredible, and everything was perfect! We even had a full moon and moose on the lake that evening. Our guests are still talking about the beauty and uniqueness of the setting. The mountains in the background were so magnificent that people couldn't believe they were real! Needless to say, our photos are incredible. I would strongly recommend this spot for a true Colorado wedding and would encourage anyone who does book an event at Piney, that they put their trust in the very capable hands of Monique!. You will not be disappointed!
  • This place/staff are awesome!
