Drowsy Water Ranch


Drowsy Water Ranch
Colorado USA

Enjoy the western vacation of your dreams. For over 70 years this 600-acre ranch, nestled in its own private mountain valley, has provided folks from around the world with authentic western vacations.
From the moment you arrive we promise nothing less than real down-home hospitality amidst unforgettable mountain scenery. Most of all, you'll enjoy a sense of total relaxation and freedom from stress. A real ranch!
The spread lies nestled in aspen trees on both sides of Drowsy Water Creek and is everything you'd expect a ranch to be. Barns, stables, corrals, log cabins, ponds -- plenty of places where kids and adults love to explore. Everything at the ranch is within walking distance. Guest cabins, the Lodge, children's playground, the fishing pond, swimming pool and games area are all within a stone's throw.
The ranch has programs for children from infants to teenagers with plenty of activities for parents and grandparents alike. Singles and couples are welcomed also. We have a complete program of horseback riding, swimming, horseshoes, steak fryes, trout fishing, western dancing, jeep trips, song fests, campfires, hayrides, carnival, pack trips, staff entertainment, gymkhana rodeos, raft trips, children's programs, nearby golf, hunting and much more -- but it is your vacation so you may take part in whatever you like.
At Drowsy Water Ranch we have a very special relationship with our 95 or more horses. We've bred, raised and trained them to provide guests with the finest of riding opportunities.
The Horse Program is outstanding and geared to every riding ability and age group. Horses are selected to match your own riding skills. Daily instruction, both in the arena and on the trail help to improve everyone's proficiency. Advanced riders have many opportunities to explore and blaze trails while handling their horses from leisurely walks to smooth lopes and gallops.
The Main Lodge is the daily gathering place for parents and youngsters alike. The door is always open and the coffee pot is always filled and fresh. A warm and friendly spot to kick-back and enjoy playing cards, browsing in the library or just visiting with new friends.
Under the same ownership/ management for 30 years, the ranch has developed a reputation for quality Dude Ranch vacations.
