Williams Fork Lodging in Colorado

Carson, Wendy & Clara

"What a great place to enjoy the mountain air, sunrises, and afternoon showers. Every day is a postcard! Those hummgbirds are voracious!
Thanks, Dale and Greg, for all of the fabulous suggestions for excursions. The Colorado River rafting was fun, The Hot Sulphur Springs relaxing.
We also enjoyed hiking the Baker Gulch trail (starting at RMNP) and the Columbine trail (from meadow creek reservoir) with Carson. The Canine Colorado book provided those excellent suggestions. Just hiking & biking around your property & the Williams Fork Valley was a pleasure. Thanks so much for sharing your piece of Grand County with us."

-- Wendy, Alexander, Clara & Carson

Les, Diane, Sulley & Sammy

"What a wonderful week! Can't begin to tell you what a pleasure it was to watch all the sunrises from the hot tub. Sulley and Sammy really enjoyed the trails and the tall grasses to run and chase the tennis balls -- a true 'Golden's' heaven.
Dale, you and Greg are very gracious hosts and I know we will be back.
Loved every minute."

-- Les and Diane
and our boys, Sulley and Sammy

Jennifer & Madison

"The BEST Colorado vacation me and Madison the lab have ever been on! It was meant to be a lone vigil, but I simply had to share it with at least a couple of close friends. If we had it our way and the resources, Madison and I would have to stay AT LEAST another week! Thanks a gazillion for everything!"

-- Jennifer Patterson & Madison
p.s. Madison LOVED the treats -- thank you!

Troy & elk

"Can't thank you enough for a great time and hunt! I must say, I can't wait to come back. Everyone here loves my pictures and asks 'Where did you get those?' I'm going to see if the dates are listed for the next two years!"

-- Troy Serfass

Jill, Merlin & Brandy

"I've been here 2-1/2 weeks and I don't want to leave! This is where I belong! This has been the most memorable vacation of all, thanks to Dale and Greg and their huge, warm hearts! The only reason I was able to stay so long is because my "children" were with me; two Gordon setters. My husband flew up for eight days and then had to go back to work! What a time! What a mountain! How can I ever say thanks enough? Please take care, Woof, Woof!"

-- Jill and Glen Kesler with Merlin & Brandy
p.s. I will be back! Even if I just sit in the hot tub at night one more time!

Dawn & Grant

"This was a wonderful find! My friends and I had a great time -- the hot tub . . . We will be back!" Grant loved the place, too! WOOF! Thank you."

-- Dawn & Grant


"Loved it here!"

-- The Urbans

"Williams Fork Lodging is like that secret spot I have on the Colorado River. I hope it won't be discovered and ruin it, but I know it will and hope the next fisher will enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks to Dale and Greg for welcoming me as part of the family. My second October trip here -- best time to fish the Colorado! Thanks for the wine, and thanks for the wonderful setting, but most of all, thanks for making me feel like an old friend. I hope I'll be back, if only just to see the two of you!"

-- David Erdmann

"Williams Fork was a great weekend retreat for us. We saw many beautiful plants and wildlife. Xuco and Kayleigh also enjoyed their time here. There were lots of good smells and nice hikes. The scenery is incredible and the lodging is very nice. Thanks for providing us with this wonderful vacation! It was short but we hope to return!"

-- Genie Trapp and Tom Ranker
p.s. We highly recommend Williams Fork to all nature lovers and lovers of solitude!

"Wonderful house, wonderful hosts, lovely views. The perfect place for a relaxing family weekend. We enjoyed ourselves very much and will be looking forward to our next stay. Thanks!"

-- P.J.S. and T. Brownfield

"Thank you for the most breathtaking two weeks of relaxation! Beautiful sunrises, gorgeous sunsets, and a view that brings tears to my eyes. I have fallen in love with your mountains ... your stars ... your moon ... your fresh air ... and your willow cat! What a character! What an incredible getaway!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I will be back!

-- Love, Vicky

"Thank you, Greg and Dale, for the opportunity to relax and unwind while enjoying the grand vista and hot tub. The experience will help sustain us through the damp, gray Virginia winter. Thanks, also, for the helpfulness in getting the flatlanders 2-wheel drive back out of here (of course, the alternative was houseguests for the winter). The information Greg provided will be very useful in (hopefully) creating our own getaway in Grand County. We will be looking forward to the prospect of a return visit next summer. Until you hear from us again, have a safe and prosperous winter."

-- Keith, Sandy, Shawn & Dee
p.s. We'll be looking for those doggy booties for Dee!

"Our 2-day stay was wonderful. Dale and Greg are the best and we will be back in the spring. We saw tons of mule deer and even some skunk. The water is always hot and the views breathtaking. We even got engaged while we were here!

-- A. Buckendahl and J. Walderback

"Thank you so much for sharing this awesome place with us. The views are breathtaking. We enjoyed the snow very much. The wildlife is amazing. We are very jealous of your every day life! We look forward to next time. We will be bringing our dog, for sure. She would love it as much as we have!"

-- Doc & Christy Williams

"Thank you so much for allowing me to share your little piece of solitude in the Williams Fork Range. I completely enjoyed my stay. It's strange to think someone was just here 2 days before me, and someone from my home state, at that! With all the peace and solitude and stillness I found here, I almost forgot I wasn't the only one who has ever gazed out over these snow-covered peaks and looked up dreamily at that full moon. I'll never forget my magical experience in the hot tub when the moon peaked out from the clouds just before the snow started to fall. I found so much more than what I came looking for -- I'm going to be all right, I'm ready."

Thank you for my blessings,
-- Maizy
Denver, Colorado
p.s. I made a batch of cookies while I was here, oatmeal chocolate chip. Enjoy!

"Thank you for opening up your little piece of heaven for us to enjoy for a few days. It's a true doggie and human heaven. We spent our days exploring by foot and bike, and our nights lounging by fireside. We are already planning our next trip while we are up here."

-- Tina, John, Aagji, Bill, Sue
Goliath, Aslau, Sass & Boomer

"We would like to say "Thanks" to Greg and Dale for sharing such a wonderful place. The accommodations were great and the views spectacular."

-- S and W Dugan & Diego
p.s. Diego really liked it that he could come, too. Thanks for being pet friendly. Thanks again!

"Our first vacation with our dog was a success due to this great place. Sam -- our dog -- loved the place, too. And it is great ... there was a dog shower!"

-- Maute

"Thanks for the wonderful location and amenities. The views, hot tub under the open sky, and the wonderful sleeping were the highlights. Jasmine, a chocolate lab, had an amazing time hiking and retrieving her favorite new stick."

-- The Reitter Family
Johnstown, PA and Denver, CO

"This has been quite a gift, a most unexpected one. Thank You. It's a very special place here. All the best."

-- Kris and Sandy

"Lovely, lovely place. Had a great time skiing, hot tubbing, and star watching, and just hanging out. Hope to be back soon!"

-- Tom and Nancy

"Dale and Greg -- Your place is great! It exceeded my expectations and is just what I was looking for. The mountains in winter are beautiful. And, everyone who stays here should stand on the deck on a clear night and take in the incredible night sky and listen to all of that incredible, wonderful silence ... except for the chorus of coyotes! Thanks for having me! I'll be back!"

-- Jeff
Kansas City

"Excellent accommodations; peaceful and beautiful location; friendly and helpful hosts; slightly off the beaten path and worth the drive. Many thanks for your warm welcome!"

-- Kelly's

"Great view of the Milky Way in the hot tub. The perfect getaway for us. Enjoyed the beautiful view. The guest house is so warm and cozy ... a real treat and we liked being able to responsibly share it with our pet 'Nikki."

-- Pitner's

"Thank you for the wine, cookies, and beautiful views. We'll tell everyone in Glenwood about our stay!"

-- J. and M. Vigil
"Thank you for the treats and doggie shower! Arf! Arf!" -- Rio

"Loved the place! Although didn't spend much time in it. Fishing was pretty good, but you can't beat the weather -- I'll recommend the WFL every time -- You two are terrific. Thanks for the upgrade."
