The views!! This place is one of a kind! I can't even begin to explain how amazing the Piney River Ranch staff was, leading up to my wedding and on the day of. Monique, the GM, who was our direct contact, was incredible from start to finish. Our wedding wouldn't have gone as perfect as it did without her. This venue is such a Colorado gem and our guests are still talking about our wedding day!! Thank you!!Sent on 02/15/2015

The views are so amazing it almost does not look real. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the location and food was. Piney River Ranch was very responsive during the planning process and our big day was perfect out there! They are very strict regarding some of their rules and were not very helpful during our walk through. We had to push to get a few simple changes. Overall we highly recommend Piney River Ranch and can't wait to go back for our anniversary!Sent on 09/17/2017

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!Sent on 08/24/2016
