Circle K is a comfortable place where is surrounded by a river and the range of mountains with many trees. We saw animals nearby and enjoyed the singing of birds everywhere. It is a very beautiful and quiet place for any occasion. We enjoyed staying there for our first retirement trip. We appreciated Cindy, the resort manager, for her friendly... More

It was great being out at the ranch. This is my second trip. The first trip was tent camping, now we rented a cabin for two weeks. The rates are good. The view is excellent. You can hear a steady trickle of water flow down the river all day. And the views are great. The owner is very friendly, makes... More

After a busy two weeks of our three week, rare, vacation, I was hoping for somewhere that we could actually relax to prepare for returning to our normal, hectic life of work. Cabin 1a was a home away from home, yet better, with the peaceful river just feet out our door. You can order meals that are wonderful and reasonable,... More

We booked the Circle K Ranch in lieu of a hotel while we visited Mesa Verde National Park (which is about 45 minutes away). Our entire family loved it. The home-cooked food was outstanding--some of the best pancakes we've ever had! They make everything from scratch & it was great. They even made us a picnic lunch to take with... More

If you are tired of the over chlorinated jacuzzi and breakfast on styrofoam plates that taste like styrofoam. Here is the place. Short drive from Mesa Verde. Authentic atmosphere. Real people who will do what they can to help. The cookie ate the church wagon even accommodated our food needs. And Yes, you can get your cowboy/girl on, right here.... More

This was our 3rd trip to the Circle K Ranch in Dolores, Colorado. We had taken our 6 children there twice for a family vacation back in 1984 and 1986. Our family has now grown to 32, including 18 grandchildren, and we wanted to give them the same experience that our own children had. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed... More

This is a great place to have a family reunion and that's exactly why we came. This is a peaceful guest ranch and the people who work here are incredibly friendly. We enjoyed our stay and our large family pretty much had the place all to ourselves. The family was able to participate in a hilarious "rodeo". The horses are... More

Good overall experience. Enjoyed the horseback ride. Motel section recently renovated and rooms are nice. Shower a bit small. No maid service the second day. Large youth group made a lot of noise late into the night but didn't come to close to the motel part.

Our family has stayed at Circle K Ranch many times. It is our favorite summer vacation spot. The scenery is fabulous, and famous destinations such as Telluride and Durango provide plenty of exciting things for the family to enjoy. Or if you are just looking for some R and R, there are plenty of fun things to do at the... More
