I'll admit that I was skeptical at first, but my husband really wanted a dude ranch vacation and the reviews were good, so I decided to be a good sport and give it a go. This was easily the most enjoyable, relaxing fun family vacation we have taken so far. The accommodations are not luxurious but comfortable and clean; the...

We have been to the ranch 6 times over the past 8 years and the experience is always great. The family who own the ranch treat you like family. Every year we learn more about riding. It's great!

We have been dude ranching since 1984 and have been to quite a few. There are many out there with lots of great people but I can tell you Drowsy Water has our heart. We've been to this ranch 6 times with and without kids. It's great either way.This family is hands on so they are very attentive to everyones...

My research and love of Colorado pointed me toward Drowsy Water Ranch. My 6 year old daughter who had not been a rider - became a confident and proficient one. The combination of the pristine, beautiful scenery and the professional, yet, personal managing of the ranch made for an unforgettable vacation - a vacation I plan on repeating next year....

I went ,never having ridden a horse and was taught to ride and lope, climbing mountains and awesome views. Everyone was as nice and encouraging, helpful and friendly. the food was great also with their own cook - definitely gained weight! We met a variety of people from all over and made lasting friendships. They had activities every night, offered...

Well it's been our fourth time at DWR and we just love it: what shall I say? You learn to forget about your own life at home, you are perfectly taken care of with a great program for all ages, mostly of course you get to sit in a saddle for a few hours a day (if your legs can...

I'm not typically a review writer, but I couldn't find any reviews relating to children under three, and this would have been helpful to me. My husband has been interested in a dude ranch vacation for some time, but we assumed we would have to wait until our youngest was at least five to have that sort of adventure. Our...

I visited DWR with my wife and 5-year-old son. It was our first trip to a "dude ranch". It was wonderful. The ranch is not luxurious or lavish, but the natural scenery is beautiful and the family could not be more hospitable. The food was not gourmet, but it was filling and no one had any reason to complain. The...

My wife and I vacationed at Drowsy Water in early August with our 5 1/2-year-old granddaughter. When on the third day of our visit we asked her how much she liked the ranch, she responded with the string of "reallys" in the above review title (after 50 or 60, she ran out of breath). We agree with her. The setting...

We had a great week at this ranch. A family and staff that made sure we all had a great and safe week. Their program was designed for us to be comfortable with our assigned horses before venturing out to the trail rides each day. We were a family aged from 8 to 71. Having been to another ranch in...
