Piney River Ranch is Vail, Colorado’s most breathtaking destination for weddings, retreats, day-trips and reunions.

Set on the edge of Piney Lake and nestled at the foot of the majestic Gore Range, Piney River Ranch is a private, forty-acre Rocky Mountain retreat, long known as a favorite wedding and day-trip destination. We are located just twelve miles north of Vail Village, surrounded by thousands of acres of back country wilderness within the White River National Forest.

Piney River Ranch is not only a picture perfect Colorado wedding and event venue. We have a variety of activities and summer fun for the entire family. From fly-fishing, hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, stand-up paddle boarding, waterfalls or simply relaxing by the fire pit, Piney has something for everyone. We also offer lodging for our overnight guests and an on-site restaurant that boasts the best smoked BBQ around.

Piney River Ranch holds active partnerships with both the National Park Service and the Denver Water Board, each established to preserve the natural beauty of the ranch and its surrounding areas.
