I can't say enough about this cabin. Great location and space. It was my favorite lodging stop on our 10 day trip to see all that Colorado has to offer. It was such a treat to have the cabin located on the water. I was able to enjoy a warm cup of tea and read my summer novel while listening...

Circle K Ranch was the starting point for our trek through the historical old mining towns of Rico, Telluride, and Ouray. If you are looking for a sleek, stylish, 5 star hotel, this isn't the place for you. Our cabin looked a little more like a Grandma might live there, but it was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed....

Staff was wonderful. We took a lovely ride to the upper meadow and saw a herd of fat elk, red tailed hawks, and various species of birds along the way. Food was very good - so nice to have home cooked. We stayed in one of the cabins and it was very relaxing; just be careful of hot water usage...

Super friendly and helpful staff. Sparkling, quaint, and functional cabin. Good food, homemade and served with a smile. Very responsive horses and knowledgeable wranglers. Rivers, mountains, memories. Coming back to fish soon! The river and the mountains have much to say, when you unplug and open your ears. Go see God's work and stay at a great place with wonderful...

Circle K Guest Ranch is first class. Very friendly staff. The cabin is right on the river. I had bought several things for the kitchen that I thought I might need. I didn't need any of it. Everything I needed was supplied. From pots to strainers. Well worth the money. The ranch is right off the main road. Looking forward...

What a lovely place! We were upgraded to a cabin right on the river, which was wonderful to sit by all day to read our books. The kitchen and full size fridge was also handy for making lunches and dinners. It's a lovely, secluded area which made for a very peaceful sleep at night. Also loved visiting the horses and...

Everything about the Ranch was great. Staff very friendly. Enjoyed a walk through surrounding area which was very beautiful. Make sure you either buy the meal plan or bring food as there is no food choices around

Thank you for your review! That is great advice in regards to meals. The nearest restaurant is 10 miles away and is not always available. We provide 3 wholesome, home cooked meals/day here at the ranch. It is a great time to meet the staff and other guests who are staying as well!

I have stayed at many locations in the San Juan mountains over the years, but nothing compared to this getaway. It was incredible! Stunning location, wonderful accommodations, kind and attentive staff. This is a prime location for an affordable weekend getaway. =)

I booked my room four and a half months in advance. Because of a death in the family, I had to cancel. I provided this establishment a full four month cancellation notice and they refused to waive the $40.00 cancellation fee. Wow! So why would I want to book in the future? There are many other places that offer the...

Daughter and I rented a cabin right on the river. It was so clean and well put together. We cooked supper and breakfast and watched satellite TV while we enjoyed or meals.
