“Our experience with 4 Eagle Ranch was nothing short of spectacular. As a venue for a destination rehearsal dinner, Kristen and the gang could not have been more easy to work with from the very start until the end! I never felt for one moment that Kristen did not have the event under control. After the event was finished, we could not have asked for a better rehearsal dinner. Everything was beautiful, the staff were so friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious. All of our guests still rave about 4 Eagle being their favorite part of our wedding week in Vail, Colorado! We thoroughly enjoyed everything about 4 Eagle Ranch!
Thank you again Kristen! You were really my easiest vendor to work with in Vail. This says a lot when you are trying to plan a wedding half way across the country!!”

Allie and Scott Netherland, Ellis/Netherland Rehearsal Dinner, February, 2016

“Organizing an event from halfway across the globe is always a bit daunting, but especially so when this event is one’s wedding! 4 Eagle Ranch is one of my favorite places in the whole valley and such a “Colorado” icon, that it just ticked all the boxes in our “would-like” list for our wedding. With guests from the East Coast of the US, Germany and Australia, we wanted to indulge our nearest and dearest in all the things that we enjoy in this gorgeous part of the world.
Lisa from the 4 Eagle event team was such a delight to deal with, everything was dead easy to organize and I never even got close to “bridezilla” status!
From the snow capped mountain back drop during the ceremony in the pavilion, over the exceptional Colorado menu, the great dance floor, tasty wines from next door and unobtrusive service, everything was all we had hoped for and more. Special thanks also goes to Kirstie, Dan LaLoni and Jaydee from Triple G Outfitters who let their gorgeous steeds Otis and Magoo be part of our big day!!! Lots of great memories, thanks Lisa and crew!”

Andrew and Sabine Ruckriegel, Ruckriegel Wedding

“We had a wonderful holiday party at 4 Eagle Ranch! Kristen and her staff did a great job handling every detail of the event. The ranch was decorated beautifully for the holidays. The food was delicious and the line dancing was enjoyed by the group. A great place to schedule your next holiday party!”

Julie VanNatta, Eagle Valley Library District

“Our event at 4 Eagle Ranch was outstanding. The phenomenal setting combined with great food and an exceptional staff culminated in a remarkable evening. From the initial contact, the staff was first rate and really cared that our event would be a success. They went above and beyond what was expected.”

Steve Amerson, Amerson Music Industries

“The entire staff at 4Eagle Ranch was extremely accommodating from the planning process to the onsite execution of the event. Our event was flawless and our company hasn’t stopped talking about that night and how it was the best part of our trip to Vail.”

Lindsey Wolf, Sigma Tau

“We have been coming to 4 Eagle Ranch for the last 4 years for our annual Father-Daughter event. The beautiful setting and the warm welcome we receive every time we return makes this the perfect venue for our last gathering and closing ceremony. The steady enhancements that the Ranch has made to its buildings add to this ideal Colorado setting. The staff at the Ranch are so friendly and always willing to work with our many requests. We always look forward to a fun and enjoyable evening under blue skies and a warm fire!”

Marina Abraham, Program Director

“The 4 Eagle Ranch hosted our family as part of the events in Vail for our mother’s birthday celebration. She was 93. A gathering of 43 family members from across the United States and Europe, including all ages beginning with the youngest, who was 2, enjoyed a unique experience. The Ranch offered a beautiful setting in the Colorado Rocky Mountains where the sky seemed to go on forever. The activities afforded everyone an opportunity to participate–whether horseback riding, playing horseshoes, volleyball, or steer roping (plastic heads!), or rocking on a comfortable chair on the porch. The lunch was delicious and more than plenty for the hungry crowd. The hosts of the 4 Eagle Ranch were warm, attentive, and fun. They were committed to our enjoyment from the first planning phone call to the last wave goodbye. Our family still talks about the great time we had and it’s a memory that will live on for generations. We are all so grateful to The 4 Eagle Ranch for helping make our time in Vail wonderful and memorable.”

Leslie Nettelmann, Nettelmann Family Reunion

“Recently I held a staff meeting in the Rockies and needed a great place to let the team ‘de-compress’ for an afternoon. 4 Eagle Ranch was just the spot. After an afternoon ride and activities with the 4 Eagle Team, a great dinner and relaxing by a bonfire, the team was so inspired that we were able to bulldoze through a long agenda quickly and efficiently allowing for an encore visit and horseback ride the following day. Kudo’s to the 4 Eagle team on service, friendliness, and atmosphere. We’ll be a returning for sure!”

Chris McDonald, Compass Group

“I wanted you & your whole team to know that our family reunion’s visit to 4 Eagle Ranch was the highlight of the reunion. Everyone (all 55 of us) had a wonderful experience. As the local quarterback for the reunion, you & your whole team couldn’t have been more helpful, welcoming, & customer driven. This included your help in planning the event specifics including the hayrides, dinner, line dancing, steer roping and fireside roasting of marshmallows. The night of the event went off without a hitch, and all three generations had an equally great time due to the wonderful setting of your ranch, the fun activities, as well as your team of cowboys & cowgals who gave us all a true Western experience. You can be sure that you will see me again, & we already have related our very positive experience to many friends. Thanks again for everything.”

               Alex Huck, Huck family reunion

“Beginning with skeet shooting, then lunch on the trail, followed by a three-hour ride atop a horse driving cattle, the entire day made us all feel like city slickers. Certainly there was networking, but in this fun setting we were able to loosen up as we yelled ‘yeehaw’, moving the cattle along the trail. Our attendees commented that this day would stand out as an event to remember. Afterwards, we enjoyed a traditional BBQ with checkered tablecloths and a local band. We had the opportunity for business in a casual setting with no pressure, a few beers, and lots of laughter. The final results? We closed a deal three weeks after this event, and we were told that experiencing this relaxed schmoozing was the ticket!”

Jennifer Volckmann, Events manager for the Redwood City, CA, Open Wave Systems, Inc., as quoted in the February 2006 issue of Corporate & Incentive Travel Magazine, had this to say about her meeting & event criteria and experience at 4 Eagle Ranch.

“Located a short drive from Vail and Beaver Creek, the 4 Eagle Ranch offers meetings a unique taste of Colorado’s Old West.   In the original setting of an 1880’s homestead, in addition to traditional ranch activities, the 4 Eagle Ranch           also boasts an on-site chef and fully equipped kitchen. From timing and transportation to meals and beverages, from bands and dance instructors to roping machines and storytellers, the 4 Eagle Ranch and the surrounding Rocky Mountains are truly a unique experience for meetings.”

Corporate & Incentive Travel Magazine

“TIA’s Summer Board of Directors meeting couldn’t have ended their time in Colorado in a better place than your beautiful ranch. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend 4 Eagle Ranch to anyone traveling to the Vail area. In fact, I would say it’s a ‘can’t miss’ place to visit either for a group or for a family cattle ride.”

Barbara Logan, VP, Meeting & Event Services for Travel Industry Association, July 2008 (90 guests)
