C Lazy U Team

What is the difference between a good trip and the vacation of a lifetime? The answer is simple: personal service.  By this we mean the kind of friendly, dedicated service that can only be provided by people who love their jobs and in turn strive to make guests feel welcome and pampered. At the C Lazy U Luxury Guest Ranch, we go that extra mile to welcome you and make sure you have a great time: we call it superior service and it is what makes our Colorado dude ranch “Miles Above Ordinary.”

Meet the C Lazy U Staff: Dedicated to Providing the Best Colorado Family Vacations!

Jeremy Belnap, General Manager at C Lazy U Ranch

Born in Litchfield NH, Jeremy graduated from college in North Carolina after studying hospitality, restaurant and resort management. He began his career 20 years ago by working in multiple leadership roles covering all areas of hospitality, for notable luxury brands such as Marriott Hotels and Resorts, the Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront and the Kessler Collection.

For the past 7 years Jeremy has led the award-winning teams of the only Forbes Travel Guide 5-star rated luxury guest ranches of Magee Homestead (part of the Brush Creek Luxury Ranch Collection) in Wyoming, and The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana. During Jeremy’s tenure, Magee Homestead was initiated into the Relais & Chateaux collection and also achieved its first 5-star rating in its first year of submission as well as each year following his tenure. Both the Brush Creek Luxury Ranch Collection and The Ranch at Rock Creek also received notable recognition in Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, Robb Report, and more.

“My family and I are excited to move to Colorado, joining more than 100 years of guest ranch history at C Lazy U. The rich story of the ranch provides a perfect setting for creating unforgettable family vacations and I’m thrilled to become part of the world-class team that has led those experiences for generations of families!”

From the Horse's Mouth

Since it was my first time booking with the ranch I had many questions leading up to our visit. Some of which were probably repeat questions but anytime I called the front desk, the staff was always so patient and informative. Mike was our first introduction to the ranch and he really set the tone for the warm and inclusive welcome we received our whole trip.
