Welcome to Our Patch of Heaven!

Howdy friends! In honor of our 100th year in operation (it's incredible!), the Bar Lazy J is going high-tech! Now not to worry--there's still none of that allowed here while you're on vacation, but while you're away and anxious to keep up with what's going on (or you just need your "ranch fix"), come check in on our ranch blog where you'll find hoards of photos, we'll follow our staff and you'll hear all the latest happenings first! Of course reading about it isn't nearly as good as the real thing, so we hope to see you out on the trail real soon, but until then, check out what's happening and leave your comments--we love to see that our friends have stopped by! Happy trails everyone!

Bar Lazy J in American Cowboy Magazine!

    What an honor it was to be featured first in American Cowboy magazine’s “10 Historic Western Hideaways” this Fall! The article highlights the ranch’s rich history and present day status as one of the leading guest ranches in the country.


     “In 1912, the Buckhorn Lodge opened its doors to traveling guests for $5/day on the American Plan, which included food and lodging, as well as activities such as horseback riding, fishing, square dancing, singing, and cookouts.”

     Hmmmm…..well the rates have changed (sorry folks), but the service and activities haven’t strayed too far from their origins. Perhaps the biggest change is that polo is no longer played on the lawn and guests no longer need a reference letter in order to come stay with us! Ha!

     One thing is for certain, they captured the feel of this place and our favorite line would have to be, “… Jerry and Cheri do their best to make sure that each guest returns to their home knowing they’ve now got family in Colorado.”

They nailed it!

Thanks for the nod American Cowboy magazine—from our cowboys and cowgirls to yours!
