The Drowsy Water Ranch has been providing visitors from around the world with authentic, western ranch vacations for over 90 years. This 700 acre family guest ranch is nestled in it’s own private mountain valley and has as much charm as it does family friendly activities. We visited the Drowsy Water Ranch in June of 2015 and loved everything about it.
The stay starts with getting your bunk house assigned to you. All of the cabins are made from local trees and perfectly pair historical flair with modern amenities. From the moment you arrive you’re greeted with authentic, down-home hospitality framed by an unforgettable mountain backdrop.
Activities are the main attraction at Drowsy Water Ranch, and include horseback riding, rafting, guided hikes, mountain biking, a ranch zip line and lots more. Their herd of over 100 horses and expert instruction provide an enjoyable experience for all experience levels.
After a day of Rocky Mountain activities, kick back and enjoy the sunset and wait for that dinner bell to ring. The dinner bell is a near-sacred activity that only the most daring kid gets to participate in. Once the bell is sounded, it’s family style eating on picnic tables and paper plates.
A week spent at the ranch will prove to be full of unforgettable memories. The word has gotten out, too! Drowsy Water Ranch was voted the 2010 #1 All Inclusive Resort in the world by tripadvisor.com, voted #4 for 2011 and recently again made to top 25 for 2012. The ranch was also named the #1 Best Dude Ranch for Families by the familyvacationcritic.com in 2011.
