“Elk Valley Ranch is an incredible adventureland for families!  The open space and scenery is unparalleled and the proximity to Boulder Mountain and Capital Reef makes it possible to do more things than you thought you could in a short amount of time.  We had a great time!  Highly recommend it!”

“I loved the Elk Valley Ranch! It was a great place to bring our family and friends!! It was very spacious and our kids loved all the open spaces to run, ride our 4-wheelers, and play! I loved being close to Capital Reef and one of our favorite restaurants Cafe Diablo!  Our friends enjoyed it too. The wonderful thing about the barn is how spacious it is.  I really enjoyed the decor, the large kitchen, and the outdoor sitting area.  We were able to host our friends and not feel cramped!  With all the parks close by the Ranch, it was the perfect place to relax, read, and kick back after a long day of hiking!”

“The Ranch at Elk Valley was exceeded our expectations!  It was the perfect place to bring our large family and grandchildren.   We didn’t even have to leave the barn to enjoy this beautiful area. There are spectacular 360 degree views from the fabulous large patio where we barbecued and ate our evening meals. As an interior designer I appreciated the rustic beauty of the barn.  The attention to details were perfect.  The large open main floor of the barn was fabulous with the open beamed ceiling, antiques and comfortable furniture.  The kitchen felt like home with the granite countertops and great space to prepare meals for our large group, as well as having enough seating for all of us at two large beautiful tables. Great space for all of the adults to visit as well as kids. The spacious bathrooms were great with three sinks and in one and two in the other with plenty of space for multiple people to use at once. 


Plenty of fabulous hikes to enjoy in Capitol Reef and Boulder Mountain.  You can do it all, or relax and drink in the scenery.  The hosts were lovely and so gracious.  We will definitely come again!”

"We really enjoyed our stay at the Ranch and are itching to get back! We loved being able to enjoy a picturesque mountain scene from the outside, yet we were able to step into a clean and quaint Western interior. As much as I love to be in the "Great Outdoors," I also love being able to step into something that feels a bit like home at the end of the day. The surrounding area is gorgeous, and I loved the opportunity to see as much as I could on those ATVs. They brought out the adventurer in me! What makes the Ranch a keeper for me is that it is family friendly. It can accommodate all ages and personalities, whether it's a baby who needs a bedroom to nap in, a large area for games and visiting downstairs, a great kitchen for preparing meals, or FUN activities outdoors. We have and will continue to recommend the Ranch to our friends."
