Hot Tub & Pool

Enjoy our oversized, family-friendly hot tub by the pool and Patio House—you’ll love the waterfall feature. Unlike the pool, which is open seasonally, the hot tub is open year-round and is perfect to relax those sore muscles after a day in the saddle.

The Ranch Store:

If you forget to pack something, don’t worry! You can always head to the ranch store, Luis’ Old Place, to pick up anything you may have missed. We have everything from toothpaste to the perfect boots for horseback riding.

Stay Hydrated:

C Lazy U Ranch is at an altitude of 8,200 feet, which can contribute to dehydration. We provide all guests with reusable water bottles to fill with the fresh mountain spring water available throughout the ranch, but we suggest hydrating before coming to Colorado. Teardrop image

Pack for All Weather

The ranch is beautiful in all seasons, but Colorado weather can be unpredictable. Pack layers, including long-sleeve shirts, jeans, raincoats and sweatshirts, that are easy to wear and carry out on the trail.

Don’t Forget Sunscreen & Sunglasses

There is approximately 25% less protection from the sun at this altitude so don’t forget these items—even in the winter!
