The choice is yours. Hiking mountain trails, biking awesome trails, horseback rides from 2-6 hours, fly fishing, kayaking, campfires, swimming, hot tub, sauna, ping pong, archery, clay pigeon shooting, baseball , horseshoes, basketball, volleyball, nightly activities like movies or karaoke or lcountry line dancing or other fun. Or watch the deer feed in the field. Or sit on rocking chairs and relax. Unsurpassed meals and service. Every ranch hand strives to please and make sure you are enjoying yourself.

My only complaint would be that we didn't book the entire week.
The food was great and plentiful. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
During our stay the action never stopped, you go from one great activity to another. Horses, mountain bikes, baseball, archery, shotgun, fly fishing etc and more.
I can't wait to book it next year.

My husband and I chose to celebrate our anniversary at the ranch! Seldom do you visit a place that doesn't disappoint. Majestic is such a place! Everything was top notch! We stayed in a beautiful, just renovated room, with lots of space to spread out! The food was highly rated and it deserves the high rating! Each meal was delicious, nutritious, and different. We came for the horseback riding and again we were not disappointed. Both our horses were perfect for us. I highly recommend coming on Sunday and leaving on Saturday because the rides got gradually more difficult and longer as our comfort level improved. Each trail was different and "majestic!" When not on the trails, there were many other activities to do. Once again, Robert, the hands on owner, was sure to purchase the best equipment. The mountain bikes were fabulous. The Whitewater Rafting trip, included in your price, was such fun! All staff were happy to help out in any way they could. I didn't get to read my book because there was just too much to do! Can't say enough about Robert. He loves teaching new skills to the guests. Flyfishing, clay shooting, roping, just to name a few. Highly recommend the Majestic if you are looking for an awesome dude ranch experience!

Just returned from 3 action packed nights at Majestic Dude Ranch. It was a great trip for the whole family. I have 9 year old and 4 year old and both loved the whole experience. There was never a dull moment, this place is more than just horseback riding; rafting, mountain biking, fly fishing, and hiking. The place was very clean, the food was great, and the entire staff was very friendly and attentive to any need. Robert, the owner, was very involved and new every guest by name. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would love the opportunity to return.

The Majestic is one of the most amazing places my family has ever been to! The beauty is found in the setting, activities, food etc but mostly in the staff and hands-on owner Robert! He and his staff go out of their way to make sure any and every need or desire you have is met.

If they don't offer and activity you want, they will find it nearby, take you and cover the cost! The food is exceptional and every type of meal preference is met.

The accommodations range from rustic to modern based on your desire and family size. This is a family style ranch, not a new spa style setting so you should keep this in mind as you make your choices.

The ranch plans activities for the children so that adults may have their own time together or you may do all activities together as a family if you so choose. The horseback riding is exceptional and the variety of rides and settings for each ride is amazing! Each ride has a different trail and scenery so no ride is alike! The fishing, fly-fishing, kayaking and mountain biking are also top notch!

Since Robert prefers to cap his guest count around 50 or less each week, you all have a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and make friends from around the country. This low staff to guest ratio also provides an amazing customer service experience!

I have traveled extensively with my children and I can honestly say that Robert and his staff provided one of the most amazing opportunities for us to MAKE MEMORIES that last will last a lifetime!

I highly recommend The Majestic Dude Ranch to all who are looking to smile, laugh and make memories that they will carry with them forever!

Colorado at its best. The views from the ranch are breathtaking. It is surrounded by the San Juan Mountains. The ranch is a little slice of Colorado heaven. The cabins are comfortable, living room, 2 bedrooms and bathroom, there were 5 of us, and we had enough room. There is a big dinning hall with a fireplace with long tables to eat your meals at. The food was exceptionally good, ranging from lamb chops to fish to Italian sauce. Fresh cookies are baked every afternoon. Vicky made German potato salad one day for lunch.....delish.

So many things to do. From going out for a morning ride to fly fishing. But the stars of the ranch are the people who work there. There is nothing and I do mean nothing that they won't do for you. Robert is the owner and is very friendly and always available. Jenn and Brandon are in charge of the horses. They are so nice and very knowledgeable about every horse and which one would be perfect for you.

Don't hesitate. Make the reservation and pack your bags. Be sure to bring your boots!!!!

Room Tip: Bring your cowboy boots and hat...get into the experience. You're in Colorado now.

This was our second time at Majestic. First time was a dream come true. All the activities, the cabins, the 4**** meals--better than we have had on cruises, the wranglers, the owner, Robert. Everything was wonderful. I am writing this review in spite of the fact that for the first two days, WE HAD NO WATER!! You read it right, no water!! We were there the last week of May, 2012. Many guests. I never heard a person complain about the situation. Robert and his crew worked extra hard to see that fresh water was available for us to drink and for the greatest menus in the world to be prepared. There was nothing Majestic could do about the situation--seems there was a water line broken. The staff treated us like royalty, appreciating the fact that we were all taking this in stride. We learned to cope. Being there was so relaxing, so much fun: We fished, went whitewater rafting, rode horses, western line dancing, cowboy poetry around campfire under the stars, canoeing, bow and arrow, played baseball on a regulation size baseball field (batting cage also available) and more!! Everything great.

Back again this year--ditto above-EXCEPT we did not have water problem. Swimming pool and hot tub also available. Hope to go again next year. Please note, my husband and I are 71 and 70. We were the oldest there and we had a ball. This was on our bucket list, we did it, did it again, and plan to go back!! Majestic, you Rock!

Room Tip: Stayed in two different cabins. This years cabin was completely renovated. Very nice. Next year p...
