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

If you are not used to it, it may seem scary to go to a ranch instead of a motel. But we did just that and LOVED it. The people were warm and friendly. The food was wonderful after long hours on the road. Our room was very simple but very clean and sufficient. The beds were comfortable. We loved... More

My family travelled to Colorado for a family vacation. We were interested in a place with beautiful scenery, lots of peaceful nature, and affordable prices. We hit the jackpot with the Circle K. Now this is not a fancy dude ranch. We stayed in the Columbine cabin. It was clean and basic. The staff were wonderfully helpful, friendly and kind.... More

It was a great place. Very beautiful location. Cabin's were clean. We booked late in the day, they were able to accomodate us. The cabin was waiting with the door unlocked and the light on. We left early the next morning and had a great time. Thank you....

This is a fun place to stay to wind down and relax. My family and I enjoyed our stay so much, we didn't want to leave. My girls (ages 10 & 11) claim this was the best part of our two week vacation. We rode horses, went wading in the Dolores river, played in the game room, rode the zip... More

There is no other place we would rather stay than at the Circle K Ranch, along the Dolores River, in South West Colorado. Surrounded by the tranquillity of nature, the majestic mountains, the river, privacy, and peace. This is a perfect place for escaping the non stop and hectic life of the big city "jungles". The cabin's are well stocked... More
