    My wife and I lucky enough to be married here last year it is truly an experience a weekend experience not just a four-hour Rush you get the entire Ranch to yourself excluding the critters for the entire weekend. The critters range from the Elk and Moose, Bear to all the animals in the petting zoo. Travis and Elaine also known as granny and the entire staff dedicate themselves to you.

    I cannot recommend this venue enough! It was literally the venue of our dreams, and everyone on staff there is so helpful and accommodating! We loved it!

    We looked at so many venues in the mountains, and this one definitely stuck out to us for several reasons! For one, you get the ranch for 3 whole days and for a reasonable price!! We were able to come set up whenever on the day of, and even on the day before! Kristin always was so quick to respond whenever I had questions and she was very available to help on the day of as well! She never minded if we came up to the ranch just to look around, or even just to say hi. They are very welcoming.

    The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous! Every single person at our wedding still talks about how amazing the scenery was at our wedding. There are multiple options for the reception and you can't go wrong! We actually ended up using the historical barn for our rehearsal dinner and the bible barn for our reception because we loved them both! Kristin and Travis have a whole storage unit full of decorations that they let you use, free of charge! The entire venue is perfectly rustic, and they even set up a petting zoo if you want (that was a huge hit)!

    They also have several cabins on site that guests can stay at, which was very helpful for it being in a smaller town. Our entire bridal party, me and my husband, and several family members were able to stay on site. Not to mention there are camping sites and RV spots available as well

    I could go on and on about this place! I am so happy with our choice and we will definitely be back just to visit!

    Oh my goodness, where to even start? This was the wedding venue of our dreams! My now husband and I were looking all over CO for a venue and were so lucky to find this gem. The ranch is absolutely gorgeous with a panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado River running right through the property. That, combined the with incredible assistance and flexibility of the staff helped make our wedding the perfect event! Kristin was amazing to communicate with throughout the process and Travis, the owner, goes above and beyond for his bride & grooms - The actual day of the wedding he and his crew were fixing walls and building campfire benches for our wedding. I have no idea where else you would have the level of service and flexibility that the Winding River Ranch had with our wedding. We can't wait to go back for anniversaries and one day, with some kiddos! :)

    I have observed several of my brides get married out at WRR and have toured the location several times. It's a venue of it's own kind and the owners provide a very personable experience.

    It is always a pleasure to work with Melissa and Travis at The Winding River Ranch. The river flowing through the most beautiful meadow ceremony site with Rocky Mountain National Park as your background. Oh how we love to come to work here!

    Melissa and Travis at The Winding River Ranch are fantastic to work with. The Ranch is a beautiful place to have a wedding and Melissa and Travis go that extra mile to make sure their couples have everything they need, even if it is a special request. With accommodations right on the Ranch it makes a great gathering place for families.
