“A favorite place to return to again and again”

I just had the delightful experience of celebrating my birthday with 30 friends and family at C Lazy U ranch. Once again the service, food, activities and ambiance were exceptional. My husband and I said to each other that we could not imagine NOT returning every year. It truly is a treasured place for us.
