This is the perfect place for connecting with nature, and it’s easy to relax at this beautiful luxury escape. Some of our most popular activities include hiking, fishing, evening entertainment around the fireside, and of course, horseback riding.

There is always plenty to do!

All rooms are decorated with western décor and many offer fireplaces that will warmly welcome you  from a day outside.

From the Horse's Mouth

“Gorgeous ranch getaway in the lovely mountains of Colorado!”

I recently stayed at C Lazy U Ranch for a friend's wedding. This place is well taken care of, the land is pristine and the location is just gorgeous. The cabin-style rooms are really nice. Ours had a wood burning fire place and a Keurig coffee machine (I'm a bit of a coffee fanatic). The bed was SO comfortable and had thick blankets that kept me warm throughout the night.
