The Resort

Wilderness. Privacy. Serenity.

At Sorrel River Ranch Resort and Spa, the personal touch and hospitality of a traditional ranch is carefully blended with the service and amenities of a fine resort.

Service comes naturally

The atmosphere at our ranch brings out the beauty and balance of an unpretentious type of luxury, with genuine smiles and custom tailored service. The quality of your Sorrel experience lies in the hospitality of our team who works together to make your vacation memorable.

Our story

In 1903, homesteaders Fred and Ida Stearns claimed the untamed territory on the Colorado River that is now Sorrel River Ranch. Their original two-room farmhouse still stands by the resort’s organic herb garden. In 1947, the farm was sold to Bill and Lillian Boulden who continued the family farm tradition as Boulden Cattle Ranch. In 1994, former bass guitarist for Rick Springfield, Robbie Levin, purchased the ranch from the Bouldens and developed the property that officially opened as Sorrel River Ranch Resort and Spa in 1999. The current owner purchased the property in 2008.

Sustainable style

Ranching has been a sustainable way of life in America’s heartland for centuries, and our focus on farm-to-table dining, together with the use of other natural resources are natural extensions of the property’s history, dating back to the farming days of the Stearns family in the early 1900s. We further try to limit our impact on the environment by using cutting-edge solar and geothermal technologies to offset much of our energy requirements and operating our own water filtration plant.

Group events

Whether you’re planning a festive celebration, a productive meeting, an intimate dinner, or a large business conference, Sorrel River Ranch Resort and Spa is an unparalleled venue for group events, including corporate retreats, employee incentive travel, and social gatherings. Complete buyout of the ranch is available with advance notice.

Off the grid

The clutter, noise and busyness of modern life can rob us of our enjoyment and wonder of the natural world around us. When we take time to simplify and reconnect with ourselves and each other, we are able to see the beauty in the everyday more clearly. A vacation at our ranch offers a new perspective on what is really important.
