“top notch for horsey kids and grownups”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2011

C Lazy U provided a terrific experience for three generations, particularly the horse-crazy kids in our families. The counselor-led program beginning with six year olds is super. (Much less to do for under-sixes here.) And everything else about the place signals its many years of experience (and high prices!) The people are exceptionally nice. The accommodations, though not ritzy looking, are extremely comfortable. The food is really good. The scenery is to die for. And other amenities (e.g. pool) are just fine, too. If you're not into riding you won't have a heckuva lot to do--read books, take walks, swim, relax, eat, etc.--but if you are you couldn't find a better place for a summer week. Note, though, that a LOT of people are returnees and for newbies it could feel a bit like a club you are only a candidate to join. (We had enough in our own party that this didn't matter at all.)

Room Tip: You may not have a lot of choice!

I can't even begin to describe this place. Old-school, refined, elegance yet un-pretentious and comfortable in every way. Staff was exceptional - programs were amazing. Although I know every detail was very well planned - nothing felt contrived, this place is authentic. We rode horses, had spa treatments, fly fished, zip lined, played tennis. The kids programs were unbelievable - they took special interest in all kids to make sure that they all had a great time and a successful experience with the horses.

Room Tip: Book early! Ask about location if it's important to you to be close to main area.

From the very first moment when we were welcomed to the ranch by the operations director and the ranch hands we felt truely at home at the C Lazy U. We have taken many vacations at "family friendly" places and have never felt as comfortable as we have here. The service staff is top notch, and ready to provide any thing you may need or desire at a moment's notice. The food and bar service is truely 5 spur rating, and you will never be hungry. Cabins are upgraded with very comfortable bedrooms, and provide a truely unique western living experience. But the best part of all is the riding program for both adults and children. The C Lazy U herd is a truely beautiful thing to see; healthy, happy, and well conditioned. The horses are superbly trained and comfortable even for riders with minimal experience. For riders with more experience, a more energetic horse is readily available. Our kids absolutely loved the childrens program. They were kept busy all day long with riding, swimming, outdoor games, and just about any other thing you could imagine. A truely perfect family vacation and one we will cherish the memories of for a life time.

The whole experience was fantastic, which explains why the majority of guests have been coming for years. The staff / service is incredible. The riding is outstanding. The children's program keeps the kids busy all day from 9 - thru dinner. Although if you want to spend more time with them, you can take them fishing, zip lining, rock climbing, biking, hiking, or shooting instead of using the camp. The spa had an excellent massage therapist. It was an easy drive, but others took the train and loved it. The room was nicely decorated, the bath room had nice amenities, and they put new snacks and fruit in the room daily.

Best for us: the riding, the scenery, the resort, the camp, the other guests, and the staff.

Least: My husband was not really into riding, hiking, or biking. He was not motivated to find activities for himself. They do have someone who works with the guests to help keep them happy and occupied. After a few days, he met with the ranch concierge. They planned out his days. He met Wrangler Tony, who made a rider out of him. He started to love riding and ended up wining the guest Rodeo. (If you have a non-rider have them call the ranch and see what else they can do - there is great fishing, national parks, boating, golf, and other activities in the area.)

Other things to know:

They will lend you helmuts and boots, but it is first come first serve on the boots. We were the last guests in and we had no trouble getting boots.

Most lunch and dinners are adults only at group tables in the lodge. Be prepared to meet new friends.

There are no tv's in the rooms.

There are laundry machines in patio house - they supply soap. Machines and soap are free to use.

Room Tip: The rooms are all nice. If you want something quiet ask to be away from the patio house in a single...

This is our second summer here at C Lazy U .... And I cannot imagine going anywhere else! Our children get the experience of going to sleep away camp except we all get to gather together in the evenings to share our stories of our daily adventures! My husband, an avid fly fisherman, looks forward to his fishing expeditions and I get to enjoy the trailrides. And then we get to have a great dinner at a 4 star restaurant!

Room Tip: Book early
