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....

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...

It's not only my own family flying in from Germany or Oregon, it is also the Fosha family plus their staff and also the other guests forming a family of friends right after arrival. The Monday Western Dance is what brings all the guests, the Foshas, and the staff together in a wonderful atmosphere. It was our fourth stay at...

Family owned, family operated, and family focused. I recently took my 12yr old daughter to DWR for a little quality father/daughter time. We could not have chosen a better vacation spot. This is a hands-on dude ranch with the best staff, best activities, and best horses on the planet. The DWR owners are involved in every activity and are driven...
