The Lazy You spa is situated in the meadow on the banks of Willow Creek. Two of the massage tents are built over the creek and have glass floors, so massages may be enjoyed while watching the water burbling over the creek's rocky bottom. The Lazy You spa offers massages, facials, body wraps, scrubs and soaks in traditional copper bathtubs. Guests who want just a quick tune-up may enjoy a foot rub or a neck and scalp massage.
There is practically an endless source of amusement and activity at the C Lazy U Ranch. First and foremost is horseback riding. From beginners to experienced riders, one of the ranch's 180 saddle horses will be selected for each guest, based on temperament and skill. Small children will be saddled up on Katie, the pony, who is great for first-time horseback rides. Riders are taken on trails throughout the ranch, encouraged to practice in the 12,000 foot practice arena, and learn to drive cattle with the ranch's herd.
Flyfishing in either Willow Creek or the Colorado River is another great source of pleasure for guests and guides. The rivers teem with rainbow, brown and brook trout, and C Lazy U Ranch guides teach flyfishing, flymaking and provide guests with all of the equipment needed for the craft. A valid Colorado fishing licence is required for all fishers and can be purchased at the camp's general store.
Other summertime activities at the ranch include archery, using compound bows, and hiking is a great draw, with trails leading through the alpine meadow and through the mountains. Guests can learn a great deal about the local flora and fauna with a guided hike. For those looking to explore by bike, the ranch has a selection of mountain bikes to choose from and guides are available to teach guests how to handle a bike in the mountains. A spring-fed heated swimming pool is great for cooling off after a long day in the saddle, and a hot tub allows tired muscles to relax. Guests of the C Lazy U Ranch can enjoy hayrides, rope climbing, zip lining, basketball, volleyball, bocce ball, shuffleboard, weekly yoga classes, tennis lessonsand horseshoe tossing. Indoors, there is a well-equipped fitness center that is open 24 hours a day, and a games room featuring a pool table, air hockey, foosball and ping pong.
Luis' Old Place Store is the general store on-site, and sells “Western” clothing, including shirts, coats, gloves, hats, C Lazy U Ranch logo items, jewelry, sunglasses, toys, candies and a selection of toiletries and other necessities. Photo:
