We just returned from our week at Drowsy Water Ranch. Our group of 11 spanned ages 5 to 60's. We had an amazing time. My family of four was not sure about horseback riding - none of them had ever really ridden before. They really enjoyed their trail rides and their horses. The Foshas and the other wranglers gave excellent... More

Our family of ten just returned from Drowsy Water Ranch. We were a family with ages 5 - 72. There were activities and fun for all. Not only was there horseback riding with very thorough riding instruction but each night there was a different activity for both adults and children. The Fosha family went above and beyond to make our... More

We just returned from Drowsy Water and we can't wait to go back! We now know why so many people return year after year. The Fosha family and its employees truly allow magic to happen. They treat you like you are their best friend. Their love of their ranch comes shining through. Our children (6,7 and 15) were playing the... More

Wow!!!! It is hard to explain what happens at Drowsy Water Ranch from the Sunday you arrive to the Saturday you leave but as the Fosha's say the first night, a kinda magic happens. We came to the ranch with three teenage girls and to be honest they were a bit skeptical because their idea of vacation was the beach.... More

My wife and I were invited by friends to join them for a week with their family. All together there were 19 of us ranging in age from 75 to 5. Our friends who invited us have been coming here since 1986. Thanks to Ken, Randy Sue and their outstanding staff, everyone had a fabulous time. Thanks to Ryan and... More

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
