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.

The Majestic Dude Ranch was exactly what our family needed. A time to get away from the grind, unplug and challenge ourselves with a plethora of activities while be uber supported and treated like kings and queens by Robert's staff. This will definitely be a vacation to remember and would love to go back in a heartbeat!

While the facilities are a bit “rustic”, any concern was very soon extinguished by the incredible staff, setting, and activities! My daughter, who is as critical as they come, was the most effusive in her praise for the overall experience. This was a family vacation which we all will fondly remember for many, many years!

Just left the most magical place. Staff was amazing, and part of the family by the end of the week. They go out of their way to make your experience memorable. Gorgeous scenery. So many activities there was not time to do them all. Now onto the horses. There is review Posted that claims mis treatment of the horses, claiming they are penned in too small of an area. This is the horses day paddock for a few hours when the rides are taking place so they are accessible. They are released into a large pasture in the afternoon until rounded up again the next late morning. Believe me, the horses are treated extremely well, and the horse wranglers understand the horses, how to treat them, and go out of their way to teach guest proper horse Etiquette. During our stay I saw both a vet and a Ferrier come visit the herd. The two main wranglers have been around horses their entire life. They also rehabilitate horses that have been mistreated. I think this makes the picture very clear. The rides were amazing, and there are several options from the novice to the semi expert to experience how amazing these animals are. You can look up the website, but there are activities morning till night, something for everyone, karaoke to ATV rides to arts and crafts for the kids to archery, target shooting, water sports, etc. Overall I cannot recommend a more amazing dude ranch experience.

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!

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.
