Piney River Ranch is one of the Vail area's most spectacular summer and fall destinations for outdoor activities, wildlife viewing and relaxing in a peaceful, high alpine lake setting. This 40-acre ranch is about 12 miles from Vail and is surrounded by thousands of acres of backcountry wilderness. Such a setting makes it a standout location for weddings, events, family reunions and romantic getaways. Rustic accommodations at the ranch include cabins, yurts and glamping tents, and even though these lodgings do not include kitchen, bathroom or shower amenities, a shared bathhouse is onsite for guest use. Activities include horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, stand-up paddleboarding and hiking. Lunch and early dinner dining are available at the on-site restaurant and bar, which has an outdoor patio overlooking Piney Lake.
