For over 65 years, Deer Valley Ranch has been a top-notch, destination dude and guest ranch vacation resort. During a week at Deer Valley, our guests have the opportunity to fish for trout in a high mountain lake, climb one of Colorado’s highest peaks, whitewater raft the rapids of the Arkansas River, pan for gold, square dance under the stars, ride a horse above timberline to view wildflowers, elk and deer. Our staff have opportunities to enjoy these same activities, but are hired to help provide a unique vacation — shown by their service, hard work, helpfulness and friendliness — for our guests.
Our goal at Deer Valley is to give our guests a unique family vacation in a Christian atmosphere and our staff is the key factor in achieving that goal. Serving others as Christ served the church is the philosophy we are looking for in staff we hire. We do our best to let our work reflect our faith. On Sunday morning we stop to praise our Lord and Savior in a morning worship service. Our wranglers lead a devotional at Wranglers’ Breakfast and many of our staff share their faith musically at our Sunday evening hymn sing. There are usually impromptu Bible study options for the staff, both on and off the ranch. Through over 60 years of serving our guests, the one comment that is most consistently repeated is that “the Christian atmosphere is the best thing about Deer Valley”.
