Celebrating 96 Years as a Colorado Guest Ranch

There is an authentic dude ranch out west where the Colorado River runs off the Continental Divide and winds its way through mountain valleys. It’s a land of green meadows, blue skies, and clean air. This is Colorado ranch country, and has been for over 90 years. Things have changed some since the early days, but the history of horseback riding, fly fishing and Colorado family vacations remain a stronghold of tradition that passes down from one generation to the next.

Since 1919 The C Lazy U guest ranch in Colorado has been celebrated around the world for its rich history, rustic elegance, legendary cuisine and signature 5-Spur Service™. There is something (and then some) for everyone who enjoys luxury dude ranch vacations. Kids enjoy adventure & discovery while adults do everything they want, or nothing at all. Corporations & groups enjoy this all inclusive dude ranch as a simple and secluded corporate retreat location destination. Get ready to plan your perfect ranch wedding at C Lazy U and all the beautiful western vistas and activities C Lazy offers!
