Family owned and operated since its beginning, C Lazy U is an inclusive, luxury guest ranch that has been dedicated to providing memorable family vacations since 1919 and has been renowned as a 5-star, 5-diamond ranch for years. C Lazy U Ranch boasts picturesque views of the Continental Divide and the Indian Peaks Wilderness, while maintaining a secluded feel, being nestled in a quaint valley, on over 9,000 acres.
During a typical stay, kids and adults have the opportunity to ride twice a day, every day, improving their riding skills on horses that are anything but nose-to-tail animals at this Colorado dude ranch. C Lazy U’s wranglers take pride in the natural horsemanship techniques they use to train independent, fun to ride horses; and at the end of a week’s stay, guests participate in a shodeo to show off the skills they have acquired over their Colorado ranch vacation.
The luxury of C Lazy U Ranch is best seen in its full service spa, which overhangs the Willow Creek, it’s cuisine, and it’s charming cabins- the model of ranch elegance, built using wood from the forests on property.
