“Love this Place!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We will definitely be back! The packed sac lunches helped our families with our travel to far away places that had no food availability, that was so nice. We had a gluten free person in our group and she was well taken care of with that! Who knew white corn tortillas made such great sandwich bread?

While its off the beaten path (which was great), we never minded the drive in and out. We wish we had more time to ride the horses.

This place is blessed with sweet people and gorgeous property We stayed in the motel, and the rooms were cozy and SUPER clean. You can stay here and go to Moab, 4 Corners, Mesa Verde, Telluride... I never write reviews, so obviously this place was great and SO affordable for families.

I took 3, 8 year old soon to be socialites on a horseback ride at the Circle K Ranch and we had a great time. Tom and Julia our guides, were extremely easy going. Each girl had their own horse, Chief, Cyrus and Lil' Joe. Dave and Cindy who helped with making the reservation and who greeted us at our arrival are very pleasant and welcoming. The ride which followed a section of the Dolores river and through some nice forested areas lasted an hour, which was just right. The trail we rode was mellow and great for beginners or riders with little experience. There are large grassy areas, a game room and horse shoe pits; so don't feel in a rush once the ride is over. I'd highly recommend this as an activity to families traveling this way.

Room Tip: We didn't stay at the Cabins. We went for the horseback riding.

Circle K is a comfortable place where is surrounded by a river and the range of mountains with many trees. We saw animals nearby and enjoyed the singing of birds everywhere. It is a very beautiful and quiet place for any occasion. We enjoyed staying there for our first retirement trip. We appreciated Cindy, the resort manager, for her friendly service. We highly recommend this place to our friends and family members.

It was great being out at the ranch. This is my second trip. The first trip was tent camping, now we rented a cabin for two weeks. The rates are good. The view is excellent. You can hear a steady trickle of water flow down the river all day. And the views are great. The owner is very friendly, makes you feels at home. The views are great. I felt like I was in a little western town. Did I mention that the views are excellent?? Priceless!!

After a busy two weeks of our three week, rare, vacation, I was hoping for somewhere that we could actually relax to prepare for returning to our normal, hectic life of work. Cabin 1a was a home away from home, yet better, with the peaceful river just feet out our door. You can order meals that are wonderful and reasonable, too. We were made to feel like part of the Circle K family. We chose to attend their small, non-denominational church service that was very good. We hope returning to Circle K will become a regular thing.

We booked the Circle K Ranch in lieu of a hotel while we visited Mesa Verde National Park (which is about 45 minutes away). Our entire family loved it. The home-cooked food was outstanding--some of the best pancakes we've ever had! They make everything from scratch & it was great. They even made us a picnic lunch to take with us to the park. The kids & my husband took a trail ride & had a great experience. We had 3 different trail rides during that vacation (at 3 different places). Circle K had the best safety features of all 3 rides. The ranch staff is all very friendly & helpful. The property is lovely--very peaceful in the woods with a river running through it. Our cabin fit the 5 of us nicely & was very clean. Great experience & wonderful alternative to a hotel. We'd go back!

If you are tired of the over chlorinated jacuzzi and breakfast on styrofoam plates that taste like styrofoam.
Here is the place. Short drive from Mesa Verde.
Authentic atmosphere. Real people who will do what they can to help.
The cookie ate the church wagon even accommodated our food needs. And Yes, you can get your cowboy/girl on, right here. Don't miss this treasure.
