Since we came back from our trip here in August, my 9 year old daughter keeps referring to "when we go back to Drowsy Water" or "when I work at Drowsy Water"...There is something so different and wonderful about this place. I had never been so relaxed yet so exhausted (with a variety of muscle soreness) on a vacation. Everyone...

One word is enough to describe the holidays at Drowsy Water Ranch - AMAZING! The Fosha family makes you feel welcome, they make their ranch into your own "home away from home" . The minute you enter you are being taken care of; the family together with some 25 wranglers pamper you all through your holidays. There are plenty of...

Big thanks to the Fosha family for what was our second visit in two years to the ranch. This time we took our parents in addition to our three boys. They all loved it and kids loved returning. We didn't think it could possibly be as good as first time but was. Thank you for our favorite holiday destination from...

This ranch is as good as the reviews suggest. The business is truly family run. The owners cook, sing, hike, play the guitar, and teach horseback riding. Their hard work, honesty, and ethics permeate the young staff who are very well trained. Our family ranged from 60's to our children in 30's to grandchildren aged 5 and 7. None of...

I've never experienced a staff where EVERYONE from dishwasher to head wrangler was so friendly, helpful, professional and such a joy to be around. We had the great pleasure of going on two rides with Ian...an actual singing cowboy. Ian regaled us with great stories, interesting facts and the arias as we bushwhacked our way through the beautiful countryside....doesn't get...

This was our second visit and it was as good as our first. Never in my life do I head home as recharged as I do while also greatly anticipating our return visit. When Ken, Randy Sue, Justin, and Ryan say we are guests at their home, they mean it. Staff is first class.

Drowsy Water Ranch is a fantastic vacation resort for those that would enjoy the Colorado Mountains, trying out horseback riding, meeting new people, being hosted by a truly warm and likeable family, and getting away from the electronic umbilical cord we and our kids have become shackled to. Each week they limit the guests to 40-55 people so that the...

Howdy! Thanks for the great review of the ranch. Fantastic folks like you and your son are what make the ranch a fun, energetic and special place to visit.

Upon arrival I was surprised by a few things. There are no locks on the doors to the rooms. There are no safes. There are three square meals and it's hard to find a snack. If you have dietary restrictions they will try to accommodate you but it is really best to bring your own snacks. This is not a...
