C Lazy U Makes Travel + Leisure World’s Best List Debut in 2018

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.”

“3rd Trip Here- Fall more in love with it each time...”

I am a single mom who travels with my now 8 and 10 year old, and have found "Dude Ranches" to be a great combination for us. Kids activities/adult acitivities/family time. We tried a few but a year ago ended up here. Now, we have no reason to go ANYWHERE else - we have only been here 4 days and the kids are already begging to come back.
