Recently we heard Drowsy Water Ranch, our favorite family vacation out of many many trips, received a distinguished traveler award from this website. I can't believe we haven't used Tripadvisor before for our family ventures and plan to start searching out all our ideas here first. Thus we visited Tripadvisor and read many of the great reviews on our favorite Colorado spot. While almost all the reviews were in line with our family's views of the fantastic vacation provided at the Fosha's ranch we were appalled and frankly mad by the most recent review of such an unhappy guest. Having been to Drowsy Water Ranch with our family three times in the past five years we have met close to 150 other people from around the world who all seemed to have a fantastic vacation just like us.
A ranch vacation at Drowsy Water Ranch is like a romantic escape out west to the land of horses, mountains, an active or relaxing vacation depending on what you want, worry free vacationing and most of all a terrific place for our kids to enjoy amongst a fantastic host family and staff! The staff and Fosha family are ultimately what make the vacation personable and exciting.
We continue to tell our friends and even people we meet at random about the fantastic ranch called Drowsy Water. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton (which we have stayed at before and enjoy for its own reasons) amenities and spa the ranch might not be for you but if you are looking for some of the best service, hospitality, hearty yet tasteful meals, kids programs and a wonderful experience the Drowsy Water is for you.
We also recommend visiting Colorado even 1-3 days in addition to the ranch to visit Rocky Mountain National Park on the way to the ranch to see snow piled high and Pikes Peak (south of Denver). The weather was great the entire Vacation but if you do head up Pikes Peak remember to bring your coat! (we learned that the hard way) These were some of the other fun family spots and sights of Colorado we have found.
Hope you visit such a fun place out west like we enjoy!
