Tumbling River Ranch is very proud to be a true family owned and operated ranch. We value and cherish our family time and family vacations so much and will never take for granted the honor of hosting your family at our home.
After a week at Tumbling River, we absolutely want your family to feel that your vacation was awesome and worth every penny. We do everything we can to provide you with the most comfortable accommodations, beautiful facilities, and fun filled activities for the entire family. Keeping your cost down and keeping our rates competitive is our first priority.
What’s included in your rates: The cost of the Sunday-to-Sunday stay includes accommodations (rooms have private baths and fireplaces), meals and snacks, facilities (heated pool, hot tubs), personalized horsemanship program, children’s programs, evening activities, guided hiking programs, fitness and wellness programs, live music, rock climbing, shooting sports, fishing on our private ponds, vehicle trips, and the overnight pack-trip.
What are the additional costs? The additional items that are not included in the above rates are: a 3.9% CO state sales tax and a service charge of 15%. We are a non-tipping ranch. Should you find an employee that added a special touch to your stay, please feel free to tip them individually.
Optional activities and services: We want to offer as many activities and services as we can to make your family vacation perfect! Tumbling River offers: an all-day white-water rafting trip with Wilderness Aware Rafting Company out of Buena Vista, CO ($81 per person), airport transfers to and from Denver International Airport ($400 round-trip for the entire family up to 6 people) massage therapy (the range runs $60-$95), exclusive guided fly fishing excursions with professional guides, full service bar, evening babysitting (for children under 3 years old), and family portraits. No cash is needed. All of these charges are added to your bill and settled at the end of the week.
Deposit Policy: We require a deposit of $600 per person. This deposit is due within 10 of making your reservation. Should you need to cancel, the deposit (less 10%) is refundable if notice of cancellation is received at least 60 days in advance of your arrival date. Inside 60 days of your arrival date, the deposit is non-refundable. The remaining balance of your rates is due 30 days prior to your arrival. Taxes, service charges and any other additionals will be paid at check out. Reservations made within 60 days prior to arrival must be 100% prepaid at the time of booking. Because of our small size, cancellations or rescheduling of dates affect us significantly. A last minute cancellation or date change gives us little chance of filling the space due to our remote location and short operating season. For these reasons we uphold a strict cancellation policy. Tumbling River Ranch highly recommends the purchase of travel insurance.
Final Payment: We appreciate and encourage a check payment. We accept cash, travelers checks, and personal or business checks. We also take the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
We left our families, work schedules and comfort zones at home to go on a group adventure. Thirteen (middle-aged) girlfriends joined in the fun; we checked ‘dude ranch adventures’ off our bucket lists and channeled our inner cowgirls!
President, Conlin Travel
At Conlin Travel, we book many family and multigenerational family vacations. I can say, without hesitation and to the person, families we sent to Tumbling River Ranch come back saying it was the best family vacation they have ever had. When children are happy, parents are happy, and that’s guaranteed to happen at Tumbling River Ranch.
I wish I didn't have to leave! Tumbling River Ranch is such a special place. Our main focus was to get to ride while at TRR and we were taken on the most amazing rides I have ever been on. The scenery will forever be etched in my mind. The wranglers do an amazing job of taking care of all levels of riders and make the trail rides so fun as well as breathtaking. I highly recommend the overnight pack trip- it was a highlight! I could go on and on....I will just say it is a place you need to go and experience for yourself and you will be so happy you did. I hope to go back again!
Chief of Wilderness Stewardship, National Park Service
In September of 2016 I coordinated a 4 day wilderness stewardship training session at Tumbling River Ranch for 24 National Park Service personnel. Our group was extremely impressed with all aspects of TRR, including the conference faciliites, quality food, comfortable and economical lodging, friendly and competent staff, and Megan and Scott's hospitality and attention to sevice. The serene location at the foot of the Mount Evans Wilderness in the Colorado high country served as the perfect venue to meet our training objectives. I hope to host another training session at TRR someday in the future.
