On a list of 16 ranches to visit for an all-inclusive experience, it's good to see two Colorado ranches get noted.

When it comes to Colorado travel options, a place where you can just "show up and relax," sounds exactly what many Coloradans, let alone tourists, are looking for. These two are only 80 miles apart, to boot.

Wide open spaces, horses, fishing, hiking, some good food, a great lodge. Just a few of the things that might make up your wanted items when it comes to an all-inclusive stay at a Colorado ranch.

TWO RANCHES IN COLORADO INCLUDED ON THE LIST OF 16 'BEST'

Travel + Leisure put together their list of the 16 best all-inclusive resorts in all of America. Some are on water (one, literally- you need a boat to get there) or near water, some are luxury hotels, and two are "dude" ranches in Colorado.

C LAZY U RANCH IN COLORADO MAKES LIST OF '16 BEST ALL-INCLUSIVE'

Barely sneaking onto the list at #16, is the C Lazy U Ranch in Granby.

C Lazy U Ranch describes the dining experience at the ranch:

...families share breakfast and lunch together daily, then go their separate ways for dinner. Kids eat with their friends, play games, and get ready for the evening entertainment while fully supervised by counselors. Parents retreat to an adults-only setting to chat with old friends, enjoy fine wine and a crafted multi-course gourmet dining experience.  Kids and parents reunite after dinner for the evening’s activity and ice cream at the Patio House..

Separate vacations, yet together; it sounds perfect.

VISTA VERDE GUEST RANCH IN COLORADO MAKES LIST OF '16 BEST ALL-INCLUSIVE'

Landing at nearly #1 on Travel + Leisure's list is the Vista Verde Guest Ranch at #2. Located in Steamboat Springs, the ranch is only 80 miles from C Lazy U Ranch in Granby.

This luxury guest ranch touts "no $5 sodas, free rides from the airport, free ski lessons" and more. When they say "all-inclusive," they mean it. They have a 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio; that's intense.

...while luxury makes itself evident with the quality of the experience, the amenities of a premier resort, and the attention to detail for which we are recognized, we maintain the relaxed, casual atmosphere of a Western ranch. Said another way, we definitely don’t take ourselves too seriously.
