Where outdoor adventure meets comfort and luxury for the ultimate experience.

Sylvan Dale was started in 1946 by Maurice and Mayme Jessup, growing to 3,200 acres.  Today, the 2nd generation of Jessups, siblings Susan and David, continue their parents commitment and vision, offering guests an authentic western Dude vacation experience.  While located in the Rocky Mountain foothills, Sylvan Dale is an easy hours ride from Denver and shares the same elevation, just 5,280 feet, so adjusting to altitude is easy and user-friendly…no headache hassles here.

Sylvan Dale breeds and raises registered American Quarter Horses right here on the ranch, so guests can count on a reliable, responsive, and handsome mount—every ride!  Every guest is assigned their own horse for the week, which provides horse and rider the chance to bond, and enhances the guests experience and overall riding enjoyment.   And our cow-calf operation of registered European cross-bred cattle offers guests a working cowboy experience.

In addition to riding adventures, we offer exceptional fly-fishing on the Big Thompson River and exclusive access to private fishing lakes, deep in the Ranch’s “Big Valley”, where guests enjoy ½ day and full day guided fly-fishing for trophy-size trout.
