July 11, 2018

GRANBY, COLO. – JULY 11, 2018 – C Lazy U, Colorado’s premier luxury guest ranch getaway, was awarded in three different awards lists in the 2018 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards, a first-time honor for the property known for its genuine service and legendary western hospitality. C Lazy U, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2019, was ranked No. 74 of the top 100 hotels in the world, and the only Colorado property to make the list; No. 6 of the top 15 continental U.S. resort hotels; and No. 3 of the top 10 resort hotels in the American west.

The ranch received the awards on account of online voting from loyal travelers and guests. Feedback from guests, including, “as someone who has been fortunate enough to travel to 86 countries, I can say that C Lazy U ranks at the very top of the list … the accommodations and activities are excellent,” and “C Lazy U is perhaps the best family vacation we’ve ever had. We’ve been seven times and are going back again!” helped propel the ranch into the three awards lists.

“We are humbled to receive these honors and join this list after many years of hard work,” said David Craig, general manager of C Lazy U. “Everything we do at C Lazy U is centered around offering the very best experience we can to each and every guest. To read some of the fan feedback that accompanies the announcement of these lists is truly touching and so rewarding.”

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.
