C Lazy U Ranch
C Lazy U Ranch is one of Colorado's premier luxury guest ranches and has been operating since 1919. The ranch offers riding for all levels of horsemanship, as well as a comprehensive programme for children from the ages of 4 years plus an extensive list of non-riding adventures and activities. Set in Colorado's Rocky Mountains near to Willow Creek Reservoir, C Lazy U Ranch is only a two hour scenic drive from Denver, traversing the Continental Divide at Berthoud Pass.
Your C Lazy U Ranch wrangler will pair you with one of over 180 horses, making sure the horse is perfect for you and your riding ability, whether its your first time on horseback or you are a more accomplished rider. Your week at C Lazy U Ranch would include morning, afternoon and all day trail riding, the opportunity to partake in cattle drives during the summer months and a weekly Shodeo where guests of all ages get to show off their riding skills.
The ranch offers an extensive list of activities during the summer for those that do not ride or to fill in your days when you are not on horseback. Try your skills at archery, attempting to hit the bulls eye on traditional targets or three dimensional targets, or enjoy complimentary fly or lure fishing at the ranch pond or on Willow Creek. If you wish to explore some of the 8,500 acres of wilderness on foot there is an extensive trail system for all levels of hiking, join a guided hike and learn more about the Rocky Mountain wildflowers and landscape. Other activities include mountain biking, paddle boating on the pond, tennis, swimming pool or for an additional fee you can try clay pigeon shooting, take a challenging ropes course and zip line or have a night family glamping experience in a scenic remote location.
Set on the banks of the bubbling Willow Creek is the Lazy You Spa, a full service six tent spa, of which two of the massage tents are suspended over the river and feature glass floors. Enjoy traditional sp treatments or a relaxing moonlit 'Cowboy Soak' in copper tubs overlooking the mountains.
Most of the 40 accommodations feature stone fireplaces, there are a choice of individual rooms or full private cabins, all of which are decorated in typical western dude ranch style. The one to three bedroom cabins are the perfect choice for families where the children's bedrooms come with twin or bunk beds. Meals are served family style so you have the opportunity to form friendships with other guests. Breakfast is normally served in the main ranch dining room, a la carte and buffet, during the summer months a Woodsie Cookout Breakfast is served on Friday mornings, where bacon, sausage, local trout and pancakes are cooked fresh on the outdoor griddle and served by a roaring fire. Lunches are hearty buffets served by the pool or in the Patio House Kitchen while dinners are a more formal experience in the main lodge.
