A family-owned and oriented Colorado guest ranch nestled high in the pristine wilderness of the San Juan Mountains and just 35 minutes from Durango, CO. A week-long, all-inclusive Colorado dude ranch vacation provides families with a lifetime of memories, whether that means long rides on a mountain trail, guided mountain bike tours, hikes in the neighboring national forest, catching a rainbow trout along the banks of a cool stream, lake or river, or just relaxing by the fire with friends.

What can I say about Majestic? FABULOUS! From the time we booked our week to the end of our fantastic week! Robert and his team of staff go above and beyond to make your stay happy and FUN! We have been to quite a few ranches and he is one of the most active owners I have seen on a dude ranch! He loves what he does! We had a group of 23 book the first adult only week! EVERYONE had a blast! Horses: We are experienced horse owners and there is a review on about the horses not being taken care of! NOT TRUE! The horses are WELL taken care of and loved very much by the owner and his staff! They are well fed and in great shape! You are in Colorado and yes trails have rocks, but horses have shoes and are very sure footed and know how to maneuver these rocks and trails! So that being said, please ignore the review about the horses. Now on to the ranch and activities! Cabins are rustic but very comfy and clean! I had one of the lodge rooms and those have recently been updated and are beautiful! LOVED the shower! Nicely decorated in western décor! It has a nice little refrigerator and plenty of closet space and dressers for your clothes and jackets. LOTS of room in these. Great for a single or couple! One of them has 2 double beds and that is great for friends or small family. Food was plentiful and good! If you go away hungry it’s your own fault! Breakfast: Robert is there every morning making you a fresh made to order omelet! They have the BEST Bacon I have ever tasted! There is also lots of fresh fruit and yogurts, cereals, bagels, banana bread and a toaster to toast the bagels and/or toast. There is a great staff member that will make you pancakes, French toast or waffle made to order with fruit toppings and whip cream! Lunch: It changes every day and again plenty of it! Dinner: From ribs, salmon, chicken, steak and prime rib! Again! PLENTY of it, you need to order half orders because it is so much! And if you want more you can get more! LOL Desserts: OMG! The desserts were 5 star!!! Activities! Wow there are a ton of activities! We wanted to ride most of the time, but if you are not a rider, there is PLENTY of stuff to do! Bikes (regular mountain and e-bikes (which is what a flat lander like me from florida enjoyed!) Archery, disc golf course, ATV’s (a blast), skeet shooting, human foosball (we had a blast with that) first time I have ever done this! Again Robert will go all out to keep you busy! Oh can’t forget the hike! Hiking is awesome!!!!! White water rafting, mechanical bull riding, laser tag, paint ball, line dancing, karaoke, obstacle course, baseball and this is ALL included! I highly recommend the Majestic Dude Ranch! You will not regret it! Thank you Robert and all the energetic and I mean ENERGETIC staff! Hats off to you! Well done!

Too many horses and they are on top of each other in a dirt paddock. They look starved. Mancos lake is beautiful although many of the trails are rocky and could break a horses ankle. This place could be nice. Just clean it up, feed your horses and give them more space.

I give Owner Robert the nod in that he bats 500 in the HR department. The staff here literally love working here and love making sure you love your experience. And you will if you just relax and enjoy the flow of it all.. My favorite memory... watching city slickers outside on a big screen with a gorgeous fire pit, bourbon and a stogie under a black night and stars I hadn’t seen since a kid. Second best memory, turning Johnny the honary high horse into a real cutter on the cattle drive. If your high maintenance this is not your place. Period! The wine is cheap, the rooms are budgetel. You want be happy. But if your good with a roof and a good blights sleep, large portions of American food and lots of outdoor activities... you will love it. You won’t ever forget the staff! Kudos Robert!

My family of 6 visited Majestic to get away from the hot Arizona summer. It was an experience that we will discuss for years to come. The memories made at Majestic are to be treasured. The staff is extremely outgoing and friendly. I’ve never ridden a horse before but my the end of the week I felt extremely comfortable. There is something for everyone. Outdoor water sports , horseback riding, hiking, skeet shooting and a great team devoted to the kids. Never once did my kids say, “I’m bored “ during the entire week. The Wi-Fi reception is terrible and the cell phone signal is really only suitable for voice calls, texts and emails. That is a blessing if you want to unplug for a week, which is why we chose to go there. The grounds are a bit rustic, but that is appropriate for the majestic setting. The food is excellent. I was expecting standard camp food, but each night was a different theme prepared well. The staff took extreme measures of sanitizing commonly shared equipment such as Bows and arrows and wore masks in vehicles and inside for covid concerns. Thank you Robert and Staff. Job well done.

Visited during a Sept adult only week.. As much riding in the incredible surrounding landscape as you can stand. Better than average dude string of horses. A ton of on and off ranch activites as well...We loved the e-bikes and ATV ride. Food is great, diverse and plentiful. A full schedule of activities each day..but staff really tries to accommodate any special requests. Cant speak to the family weeks, but I dont know how this ranch couldnt help but get your kids out of their phones.

As soon as you arrive you feel an instant air of camaraderie. Every employee goes out of his/her way to help you.There are many, many things to do; and, if you are not experienced, they will help you. Robert, the owner, is a master in making sure you have a good time, and a master in bringing people together in happiness. This was the best vacation of my life.

Five stars all around. My 9 year old twins, my husband, and I all had a wonderful time at this beautiful location... tons of activities, wonderful staff, plus fun & delicious surprises along the way. The kids camp was the most delightful surprise; because in addition to planned activities, the staff interacted with the kids throughout the day and kept an eye out for them even during free time and family/adult activities. We hated to leave and plan to return.

I can’t even begin to say how fantastic the Majestic Ranch is. The owner Robert obviously goes out of his way to hire top notch staff (Nancy, Jeff, Yvonne, Houston, Asa) and it shows in every interaction you have with them. I am a person who is a bit nervous on a horse, but that just disappeared because of the wranglers, especially Houston, that come along on every ride to make sure everything goes well. The food prepared by Chef Jeff was to die for! Salmon, halibut, prime rib, rack of lamb; the desserts were better than items I have had at 5 star restaurants. The accommodations are exceptionally clean and comfortable. Anything you need is provided, and if it isn’t, all you have to do is ask. I read in an earlier review a previous guest stated the wine and beer isn’t good and you should bring your own. We carted our own high end wine here, but didn’t end up drinking it because the wine they serve was actually quite delicious! If you want a lifetime of wonderful memories, plan a vacation here. You won’t be sorry. And you know what was extra enjoyable? No TV’s and people aren’t constantly on their phones....it was wonderful to actually be able to TALK to your fellow vacationers! Kudos again to Robert for providing such a unique trip. We will be returning again!
