Seven women went on a 2-day retreat this fall. I think this is perfect for groups, adults and possibly children. I'm not sure that little kids would want to spend much time in the hot springs. The ranch was not as ritzy as Aspen spas but not as expensive either. The cabins reminded me of dude ranch/fishing cabins were brought...

We had a very nice stay at the Avalanche Ranch. The hot springs are great, the cabins are perfect, the farm animals were a fun surprise. We toured the Redstone Castle, had meals in Carbondale, Redstone and Marble. It was the perfect get away for us. Be prepared to unplug because you won't have cell service, which is also a...

We were visiting daughter in CB and decided to get away with her and her boyfriend. We booked a one night stay in the Birds Nest Cabin. Primitive yet cozy, we enjoyed cooking a meal in the kitchen (was raining or we could have cooked outside, although we had no charcoal and the rules say no cooking with wood). The...

I've been three times this past year 2015/16. The first time was nice - a Sat. in the fall. The two times after that (Summer) there were kids. This place is small. What happens is the kids take over the largest bottom pool and the parents don't follow the rules and the kids are jumping in and loud. Maybe management...

We are family friendly and we do ask that parents keep their kids under control, I'm sorry you encountered a disrespectful group. If you are looking for times to come...

We love staying in the wagons (watch your head going in and out). We bring easy food that we can picnic with, and enjoy relaxing in the waters after a hike. The tub in the little log house provides a covered place to soak or privacy. The center pool is the hottest. Lots of options. We recently hiked to the...

I went here for the first time for a family reunion, it was perfect for that. Many cute little cabins with enough comforts so you don't have to rough it. There are things to do at the ranch or nearby. Enough room to spend time apart or together. the hot springs are a great amenity when staying at the ranch...

We stayed at Avalanche Ranch in July (2016). It was my family of 4, my sister and her son, my brother and his 2 sons, my other sister and my parents. It was the best family get together that we have ever had. Avalanche Ranch was stunningly beautiful and a very intimate setting. The cabins were a perfect size and...

WE (28 or 29, once there were 32 of us) arranged and gathered for a family reunion -- renting 9 of the 14 cabins. Ages ranged from older than me to the 2-year-old. Everyone had fun, and either stayed busy (or, in my case, lounged on the porch drinking beer. I also rode my bike up Avalanche Creek to the...
