Lodging Overview
Our accommodations at Drowsy Water Ranch are snug, comfortable, western styled and decorated and carefully cleaned every day. Both private cabins and lodge guest rooms have all been remodeled and refurbished. They easily accommodate couples, small families, large families and friends wanting to be near each other. With the smell of clean, fresh mountain air, you'll never get a better nights' rest.
Recreation Overview
Drowsy Water Ranch has programs for children from infants to teens with plenty of activities for parents and grandparents. Singles and couples are welcomed also. We have a complete program of horseback riding, river rafting trip, swimming, horseshoes, fishing, western dancing, zip-line course, hiking, campfires, hayrides, family carnival, and staff entertainment. We have a special relationship with our 120 head of horses. We've bred, raised and trained them to provide each guest with a quality riding experience. The program is geared to every riding ability and age group. Horses are selected to match the riders own skills. Daily instruction both in the arena and on the trail improves everyones' proficiency. Guests may choose from slow, medium, fast or different length all day rides as well as cattle work.
Dining Overview
We take great pride in all our food, sometimes gourmet and sometimes hearty western but always well prepared. Many meals are served family style in the dining room but others may include breakfast on the mountain top, outdoor barbecues, chuckwagon lunches or sometimes just eating out of your saddlebags overlooking the Rocky Mountains. Our breads, pastries and desserts are made from scratch daily. We can also accommodate special diets including vegetarian, gluten free and allergies.
