3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice people, beautiful location, comfortable bed but EXTREMELY OVERPRICED. 100 bucks for a stuffy cubicle in an old cinderblock motel with zero amenities other than spotty wireless internet. Not sure how they justify charging so much for so little.

My husband and I came for a 3 hour ride, I am quite experienced where my husband is not at all, they fit our experience to our horses very well. Our guide Katharine was absolutely fantastic, so friendly and just a sweet person. The trail itself was beautiful, past streams, up the mountains, incredible views, aspen forests, just gorgeous!

My family recently had a family reunion here. We took up 5 cabins plus we had our own trailer. We enjoyed fishing, horseback riding and driving to Telluride (gorgeous drive!). We stayed for 3 nights and the only problems we came across were the mosquitos and no campfires because of forest fire risk. Bring lots of insect repellent!!!!!! The fish... More

Enjoyed the drive from Telluride to the Circle K. Nice setting next to the Dolores River. Played horseshoes in the evening and had a nice dinner of homemade lasagne. The cowboy style breakfast was the highlight! No televisions or blowdryer in the room. You have to get back to basics here. Very friendly family owned business.

I booked the Circle K during the Telluride music festival. The drive was worth it. The ranch was a great respite from the hectic bustle of Telluride. The Circle K is run by great folks and the setting on the Dolores River is fantastic. Our motel room was clean, simple and comfortable and we enjoyed throwing some horseshoes on the... More

Great price for a gorgeous ranch experience. We stayed in the hotel room which was clean and comfy beds. The showers had a little bit to much pressure for the kids, but felt great for the adults. Grayson was great with the kids! Wish there was more vacancy, we would have stayed longer. The food was great and plenty of... More

We spent a night in the hotel section of the ranch and it was just what we needed. We sat by the rushing river and read for a while, then had a delicious turkey dinner before returning to our nice quiet comfortable room. We could see beautiful green everywhere out our window. Unfortunately, we had to leave the next morning... More

We stayed in a one bedroom cabin with a loft. Pulling into to the area north of Dolores we were pretty excited. The grounds are nice and the cabins are really cute. In addition to cabins, this facility has dorms and rec rooms and seems to be able to host large groups for week-long camps. On the plus side, the... More

We had a wonderful 3 bedroom 2 bath cabin, in the woods very near the river, horse shoe pit, fire pit and near the dining area. The staff members ( especially Cindy) were so nice to us we didn't ever want to leave. This is a wonderful place for a family getaway or gathering for 2 days or 2 months.... More
