Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch gives you an authentic family ranch experience with a modern touch. Considered the oldest guest ranch in Colorado, Bar Lazy J knows how to treat a guest. Start off your day with coffee on a private porch, with a refreshing breeze you can't find below 7,500 feet. Then head out into true Colorado terrain: Get expert tips on fly fishing and give it a try in the Colorado River, or take a horse out of the private herd and let the staff wranglers guide you around the Rocky Mountains. But if you need some alone time, you can always let the kids go to Bar Lazy J's Kids Program, and relax in the hot tub until dinner. After eating, sit fireside and listen to the singing cowboys, or even go to a rodeo. This serene yet engaging ranch is the perfect trip for the family!

Dude Ranch
Bar Lazy J offers horseback riding, fly fishing, a heated swimming pool, and more for your Colorado family vacation. The authentic log cabins perfectly suit whole families and are on the bank of the Colorado River. And if you need some alone time, let the kids go to Bar Lazy J's Kids Program and relax in the hot tub.
Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch combines outdoor activity with the comfort of modernized log cabins. Try to catch a Rainbow or German Brown trout in the private ¾-mile stretch of the Colorado River (Gold Medal fly fishing). Or try your luck in the stocked trout pond. If you catch one, the head chef will cook it for you that night!
Ideally located by the Rocky Mountain National Park, Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch gives you a panorama of spectacular views with the Colorado River right in your backyard. Watch the sun rise over the mountains on your private front porch. Go horseback riding or fishing, and then kick back and enjoy the fireside entertainment.
Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch was first purchased in 1904 as The Buckhorn Lodge. No stranded travelers were turned away. In 1912, the owners expanded their services and hired a "newly out" debutante to host social events. After a series of changes in ownership, the authentic Western experience remains when you visit Bar Lazy J.
Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch has 12 unique log cabins, each with a private front porch. The cabins are perfect for couples or families, housing between 2 and 8 people. Each cabin comes with king or queen size beds. After a long day of horseback riding or hiking, come home to a modernized cabin with a cozy, "Old West" charm!
Deep in the Rocky Mountains, Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch gives you access to a private stock of 100 horses and trails winding through the sage-covered hills of Arapaho National Forest. Go fly fishing in the Colorado River, take a breathtaking hike, or even try cow pushing! Then sit fireside and enjoy the Western entertainment.
