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.

Had the best time. Rode a horse for the first time; ATV for the first time -twice!
Never a shortage of things to do.....and we still didn’t get to a few of the fun things.
Went with 7 other women out to have a good time...wasn’t sure we wanted to do the “Human Foosball” but Robe

This was our first try at a dude ranch, and we had a blast! Sometimes "family friendly" is geared more towards adults and children, leaving teenagers without good options. Not so here! Our 17, 15 and 13 year olds had as much fun as everyone else. We enjoyed a huge variety of acti

Response from robert b, Owner at Majestic Dude Ranch
Responded 21 Aug 2018
Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. Many families have concerns about keeping their teens busy and off their social media devices and video games. We really take into consideration and focus on the 10 - 17-year-olds and try to keep them busy with non-stop outdoor activities. So you mentioning this - means a great deal to us and we're so glad you guys had a good time. Thank you again and we;d be honored to host your family again soon.

Non-stop activities, especially for kids. Really good horses, knowledgeable wranglers, and pretty scenery. They stress safety, so don't expect to gallop off in the sunset. All the activities listed on the website,and more are really first rate. Paintball guns to shotguns for

Our Grandfather took his kids, grand kids, and great-grand kids to Majestic Dude Ranch for our family vacation 2018. We are not the easiest to please with an age range from 1 to 87 years old, a variety of injuries, and some particularly picky people. I cannot stress enough how gr

We weren't sure about spending a week of summer vacation at a Dude Ranch... away from the beach and our type of "vacation and relaxation." But we couldn't have been more surprised and pleased. It was the best vacation our family of four has ever taken and we would go back again a

Heading to MDR in a little under 2 weeks! Was there anything that you didn't pack that you wish you would have? Which rides, hikes, and activities were your favorites?
I'm so jealous. I would pack a small umbrella (it rained while we were there) and probably some warmer clothes for layering. We enjoyed every single activity! All the rides, hikes... we did not get to go fly fishing the last day which was a pity. Robert and his team literally will bend over backwards to find you the right hike, ride... for your level. my wife and i like wine, not fine wine, but decent wine. we could not find any in Mancos. I suggest if you're going through Durango that you stop at a liquor store there and stock up. Also, ask Robert for one of the renovated rooms if you can. They are much nicer than the ones pending renovation. oh, i assuming you are taking hiking boots and/or riding boots and a cowboy hat. if you don't bring cowboy boots or a cowboy hat they have plenty of loaners. (I just don't like wearing other peoples foot or headger).

"They are pretty much all the same"
"Try to get a cabin away from the petting zoo if you don't want a donkey wake-up call. TBH, my kids loved it."
"I would recommend highly their newer cabin options for larger groups of people."
"If you have a group of 5 or more, choose the newer luxury cabins."
"The 2-bedroom cabins are the best value and location."
