5 Things You Didn’t Know About C Lazy U Ranch

After 100 years as Colorado’s premier guest ranch, C Lazy U Ranch is known for giving guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience that combines the luxury of an all-inclusive resort with a down-home dude ranch. But there’s much more to C Lazy U than five-star amenities, gourmet dining, and relaxing spa services.

This is a place where memories are made, families come together, and bonds are forged. Get to know this special place with these five things you didn’t know about C Lazy U Ranch.

1. We Have the Best Water on Earth

Our entire water supply comes from the crystal-clear natural springs flowing from the hillside above, including our drinking water and the water that fills our pools and spas. In fact, the water from our taps is about as clean and fresh as one can find.

If you really wanted to, you could drink it straight from the source! But we think the complementary reusable water bottles that we give each guest do the trick. It’s important to stay hydrated at high elevation, especially when you’re horseback riding all day. Drinking the freshest water helps make that easy.

2. We’re a Family Business

From family reunions to large family vacations, our Colorado guest ranch is all about family. In fact, C Lazy U Ranch is even family owned! It’s not unusual for the owners to be on site personally welcoming you for dinner, taking you on a scenic bike ride, sharing a bottle of wine, or having you over to their house for cocktails.

3. Guests Can’t Wait to Come Back

Once you’ve experienced the magic that is C Lazy U Ranch, you can’t help but come back. On average, 55% of our summer guests rebook for the following year upon checkout. Depending on the week, that number may be as high as 96%!

With the warm sun, wildflowers, and Colorado wildlife on the trail, summertime is one of the most popular times for a horseback riding family vacation. Come summertime, our cabins are coveted, and once you get the cabin you like, you’ll want to keep it!

4. We Have Some Prestigious Awards Under our Belt

Over the last 100 years, our spectacular service has earned us quite a few awards, and we’re proud of every single one. One accolade we’re particularly honored by is that our ranch is only resort in Colorado named on Travel + Leisure’s list of the Top 100 Resorts in the World (2018).

5. Our Dude Ranch Could Be Your Summer Home

Guests who fall in love with C Lazy U Ranch don’t have to go home after their vacation is over. You can check in forever by buying one of the 35-acre properties we’re offering on site. You can build your dream Colorado vacation home, or you can buy one of three beautiful homes currently available. But you have to act fast; these mountain homes don’t come on the market very often.

“Great family vacation”

We took our kids (ages 12, 10 and 9) and had a great time. Plenty to do for everybody. We rode horses, went tubing, and skiing. The staff is very friendly and ready to help with any request. The food was amazing.
