A family-oriented guest ranch nestled high in the pristine wildernesss of the San Juan Mountains and just 35 minutes from Durango, CO. Since 1956, The Majestic Dude Ranch (formerly the Lake Mancos Ranch) has been offering our guests a home away from home in the Colorado mountains 35 miles west of Durango. A week-long dude ranch vacation provides families with a lifetime of memories, whether that means long rides on a mountain trail, hikes in the neighboring national forest, catching a rainbow trout along the banks of a cool stream, or just relaxing by the fire with friends.
