All of these reviews are spot-on. DWR is an amazing place, with amazing people, who all have an amazing time. So for this review we'll take a little different tact and simply say for whom DWR is likely NOT a great vacation, and then say for whom DWR is a GREAT vacation (even though you may not initially think so)....

DrowsyWater, Owner at Drowsy Water Ranch, responded to this review

Wanted to say Thank you for the wonderful review of the ranch. We liked the creative way you wrote your review and were spot on about the ranch not being for the party crowd. Horses are one of the main activities at the ranch and we love to make cowboys and cowgirls out of our guests, by teaching western riding,... More

What a fantastic and memorable experience we had at Drowsy Water! It was a step back in time, a chance to enjoy a country vacation, and natural Western beauty, while making new friends. The last week of August 2014, we spent a super week with about 35 people, families from England, Germany, and the U.S. enjoying Drowsy Water Ranch together-... More

We brought our granddaughters, ages six and seven, to Drowsy Water Ranch for their birthday present in 2013. Our practice was to find a place we thought they would enjoy each year and share a special trip with them. We all fell in love with this wonderful ranch run by an amazingly hospitable, likable, and accommodating family. We had hardly... More

We just returned from our week stay at the ranch and I cannot say enough good things about it. We are serious city slickers, and we all managed to learn to mount, ride, trot and even lope (slow gallop) with our own horses (at least for the week). The "wranglers" were really good at teaching us how try to figure... More

I knew this was going to be a good holiday when, at the end of the very first day, my kids both begged me to return next year. Even if you have never ridden a horse before or aren't really into the whole cowboy thing, this vacation has something for everyone. My children (aged 10 & 7) were entertained from... More

We stayed a week at Drowsy Water with two kids, ages 7 and 9. We loved it. Best vacation we have ever had. The owners and the kids are wonderful people, so friendly and hospitable. It is like staying with family. Tons to do for the adults and kids. We were on our horses more than I thought, but loved... More

This was the first vacation our family has ever gone on and all of the kids cried....they were so sad to leave on our final day that all four kids wept as we pulled away. This was easily one of our best all time vacations. The ranch and the horses are wonderful, but it's the people who own the ranch... More

Visited this past week with my wife and 14 + 5 year old boys. Felt as if we were part of the Fosha family. All of the staff was wonderful. I was concerned about running out of things to do on a ranch for 1 week, so we preplanned day trips ahead of time - our car never moved. I... More

They promise a western vacation second to none and they exceed expectations!! There is a magic to this place that cannot be put into words but must be experienced. If you like, love or were ever interested in horses this is THE place. I have never been anywhere that caters to everyone without exclusion; all age groups from little kids... More

I have never reviewed a vacation before but I am suffering from post-vacation blues and thought DWR was worthy of a glowing recommendation. My 8 year old son and I traveled to DWR last week. I was concerned he would be a little shy not knowing any of the other children and thought he would be nervous riding a horse.....whoa,... More
