The Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch lodging accommodates ranch guests in 12 comfortable, private log cabins—each is uniquely named after famous fishing flies or wildflowers.
Our Ranch Lodging Is Cowboy Authentic...and Cozy!
While the original log cabins have been modernized, the look of the "Old West" has been retained. The majority of our dude ranch cabins sit along the beautiful Colorado River, so you and your family can share memories relaxing in our log riverside furniture by day and stargaze under the big Colorado night sky every evening. Even our two largest cabins are set only just a short distance further from the water and make it convenient for everyone to enjoy the beautiful views and ranch activities.
Our cabins, which are cleaned daily and given an evening turndown service, can comfortably accommodate from two to eight guests depending on the particular cabin. We offer one and two bedroom cabins--that were once only canvas tents with individual wood stoves! Today you'll find much more luxurious amenities than guests over 100 years ago enjoyed, but within the logged walls, you can still find sections of the canvas tents that were eventually enclosed. Each cabin offers an open or screened-in porch within view and a short walk of the river and when you call, we’ll help match you with the perfect cabin(s) available to meet the needs of your family. Within you’ll find King or Queen-size beds, twin beds in the 2nd bedrooms, dressers, closets, lovely western furnishings, bright rugs, and a variety of modern day amenities, such as soft linens, coffeemaker, refrigerator and much more.
**Coolers of ice are provided daily on every cabin porch and free laundry facilities and detergent are available for all of our guests to use!
The Ranch House at Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch
When the Helmicki family arrived at the Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch in 1995, they settled in the Ranch House and called it "home". Today, the Ranch House* is open to their guests looking for the finest in ranch lodging.
At 2,000 square-feet, the Ranch House offers privacy and seclusion in a beautiful quiet setting. It is a full-size house with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, dining table, laundry room, porch, fireplace, and two living rooms. Its spacious and cozy set up makes it a great gathering place for friends, reunions or for a large family. You’ll enjoy all the amenities including our daily housecleaning services and a large porch perfect for sitting with friends and family as you share laughs, old memories, a game of cards or just enjoying a new book from our library.
The layout begins when you enter the first living room with leather furniture and a fireplace for cool morning or evening ambience. The kitchen and laundry room are set directly to the right. Head through the entry into the 2nd living room with a large picture window where you can sit and enjoy watching the silly antics of our baby goats. Also downstairs, off the 2nd living room, is a large master bedroom with a King bed, fold down futon and full bath. Up the log-railed stairs, you’ll enter into a large bedroom with three twin beds and ¾ bath. Directly off this room is an additional medium-sized bedroom with a King bed and beautiful views overlooking the river and property. Please ask us about weeks that our Ranch House is available if you’re interested in sharing this lovely, Western home with other friends or family.
**Due to its additional amenities, please note that we charge $200 more per person for accommodations in the Ranch House.
