Drowsy Water Ranch is incredible. Their horses are so good, the staff excellent and the food delicious. The attention to the guests is excellent. I had so much fun riding the beautiful hills. The wranglers give lessons on loping making the trail rides fun. I can’t recommend the ranch enough.

Drowsy Water Ranch was as magical and amazing this, our ninth summer at the ranch, as it was the first time we were here. My husband and I brought our granddaughters here for their birthdays when they were 6 and 7 years old. We had planned to take them on different adventures each year. Fortunately for us, even at their young ages, they recognized a special place run by a wonderful family and insisted that this was the only place they wanted us to bring them. We are as happy to come back to the ranch every summer as they are! You can read all about the ranch, the horses, the accommodations, the activities, the great friends you will make, etc. but it is impossible to understand the magic of this place until you experience it for yourself. If you and/or members of your family have any interest in an authentic western ranch vacations do yourselves a favor and reserve a week at DWR. Our family loves the ranch, the horses, and the Foshas who make us feel like family, and our week with them is the highlight of our summer.

My family recently returned from our third trip to Drowsy Water Ranch. We enjoy the variety of activities available throughout the week. Horseback riding is our favorite activity and we often did two rides a day. One day we did an all day ride up to music mountain where we had lunch on the top. We came back down through a scenic aspen grove called aspen slide. The supper ride up to the honeymoon cabin was a new addition for us in addition to zip lining over the ranch. Can't believe I'm eager to do that again. The breakfast ride is always fun, great food, and family photos are taken after breakfast. We did some hiking and mountain biking. Then there is the hay ride, western sing along, smores, hot chocolate, country western dancing, talent show and other fun activities that are planned for each night. My daughter's team came in first place in team penning, narrowly beating my team by nine seconds. After our afternoon horse rides we always headed to the outdoor hot tub to loosen up any sore muscles and enjoy the scenery. On this visit we saw a bear, moose, deer, ranch dogs and assorted critters. The meals and desserts are excellent. There are some talented people in the kitchen and we always looked forward our next meal. Hot coffee is available in the kitchen all day. The ranch hands that serve your meals, clean your cabin and lead the trail rides are super friendly, top notch and often return for several summers as they too like spending time of the ranch. The Fosha family has thought of everything to make your stay at their family ranch memorable. We have booked our cabin for next summer and look forward to seeing the friends we made, next year.

Last year as a family we decided to skip the whole Christmas shebang and plan a dream family vacation. Wow! I am so glad we did! It was the best decision ever! We all collectively arrived on Sunday and were greeted by the kindest, warmest staff, the most spectacular setting in a beautiful valley surrounded by the vast Rocky Mountains. This is truly an authentic old school dude ranch. Beautiful and quaint little log cabins scattered throughout the property to offer just enough privacy yet at the same time you felt like part of a small intimate village that left the rest of the world behind in the best way. Dinners are all served family style in the main dining hall, there are multiple community gathering areas to chat, watch the children play and run, watch the wranglers get the horses ready for the day and rest and relax before the next activity. The days start early with a full cooked to order breakfast then off to a trail ride (the wranglers tell some fantastic stories as well), fishing, white water rafting, hiking or even mountain biking. You are paired with your horse for the week and the staff goes to great lengths to make sure you are paired with the right horse. They have horses for EVERY skill level. (Beware -you WILL form a bond over horsey treats, nuzzles and head rubs and it will be really REALLY hard to say goodbye) There is entertainment in the evenings like campfires, music and a super fun variety show. The kids will also put on a really fun rodeo. There will be early morning breakfast rides, dinner rides and your heart will find a new love for the great outdoors, newfound friends who will now feel like family and the Fosha's and their incredible and dedicated staff -many of which have returned every summer for years (when asking one wrangler about her experience working at the ranch-she got tears in her eyes and expressed her love and sentiment for the Fosha's becoming a second family and how the ranch felt like home). The experience will leave you longing to return and (intelligently) booking your trip for the following year.
