Nestled among the pines in the mountains of Colorado, a luxurious place awaits. The roar of the gravel road under your tires and the smell of horses fill the crisp air as you pull into C Lazy U Ranch. Now a ranch might not scream luxury to some people but let me reassure you—you’ll be in for a “royal” treat.
The rustic, log cabin feel of the room is both warm and cozy. The crackling of the real wood fire is inviting, and the king-size bed is beyond comfortable. Waking up in this rustic charm will have you well-rested and excited for the day ahead. There are an endless amount of activities at C Lazy U Ranch, and you’ll want to try them all! But before the fun begins, breakfast will be the way you want to start your day.
At the all-inclusive C Lazy U Ranch, all the food is five-star quality. Starting with breakfast in the main lodge, you’ll experience an open made-to-order menu as well as a full buffet. The wait staff is incredible and will accommodate you any way they can. If you have any food allergies, no problem. The chef will create something just for you. After your morning activities, you’ll experience an extensive buffet for lunch served poolside. It’s made to order daily with food for every appetite. Later into the evening, a more formal, family style dinner is shared amongst all the guests at the ranch. A four-course meal is served, and it’s the perfect opportunity to share stories. I promise your dining experience will be memorable.
Horseback riding is the main attraction at C Lazy U Ranch. It truly is every horse lover’s dream to ride in this beautiful scenery with such stellar horses. With a herd of 180 horses, there is a horse for every kind of rider. From those that have never sat on a horse, to those who have ridden their whole lives, every rider will enjoy their experience. Based on skills, size and overall experience, each person will be paired with a horse and will work with that same horse during their entire stay, which creates an opportunity for horse and rider to bond and learn together. The ranch has 8,500 acres of land and the riding possibilities are endless—from cattle drives, mountain trail rides, arena riding and more. Rides go out two different times a day each taking several hours. There are different riding programs for both adults and kids. Guests of all ages will enjoy quality time with the amazing horses at C Lazy U Ranch.
Some of the summer activities include trap shooting, archery, fly-fishing, swimming, zip lining, ropes course, mountain biking, hiking, outdoor games and paddle boating. Winter activities include skiing, luge, snow tubing, cross-country skiing, ice skating and hockey, dog sledding, snowmobiling, sleigh rides and more. There is something here for everyone.
After full days of all of these splendid activities, there’s only one thing left to do: relax. C Lazy U’s top-of-the-line spa has just what you’ll need to unwind and relax your muscles.
The spa at the ranch is a full-service spa. Located along the banks of Willow Creek and completely outdoors, it provides a unique opportunity to enjoy both the services and the tranquility of the nature around you. Two of the massage tents have glass flooring, allowing you to look into the river during your treatment. You can get traditional services like full body massages, facials, pedicures and manicures. They even offer other unique spa services like their “Cowboy Soak.” You’ll relax in copper tubs while looking out at the beautiful mountains as the sun sets. Champagne and strawberries are the perfect touches to this romantic setting.
There are activities at C Lazy U Ranch for everyone. Young and old will enjoy all the ranch has to offer. It is rustic enough to enjoy a unique mountain getaway yet luxurious enough to make you want to stay. Even royal families and celebrities of all sorts have visited the ranch and do so on a regular basis. It’s truly a place to make memories that will last a lifetime.
