Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property and home. Very nice deck with great view and comfortable seating inside and outside. Spacious kitchen was perfect for the two families we had staying there. Jacob and Crystal were wonderful hosts and so helpful anytime we needed them. Slept our 7 guests comfortably with one person on a mattress on floor.

Spent three days here with five guys on a fishing and golf getaway. Beautiful ranch house with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Just bring your own food. Great location right on the Rio Grand River.

This place is ALL THERE!

  • 5 of 5

Word can't express the wonderful place you have here. South Fork is one of my favorite places in the world, it now is a notch higher because of this place.

If you have the opportunity to stay here, make sure you take advantage of it.

We just returned this evening from a week's stay at this cabin with our 3 young children. It was a wonderful experience and great family vacation. Tonight at dinner when I asked the kids their favorite part of the vacation each said "the cabin" as part of their list! It really is an immaculate home. We were in love from the moment we walked in. It is definitely adequate for 2 families with children to stay there together as well. We enjoyed watching the deer each day in the trees and loved the wide open spaces outside to play and fish. We also really appreciated Rick's hospitable attitude which included giving us a personal tour of the property instead of just leaving instructions. There were ample dishes/silverware as well as towels which was great so we didn't have to do much laundry or run the dishwasher often. We would love to return to this property. It really is spectacular, and I highly recommend!

We just returned (regretfully!) to our home and already miss the Lazy Suzy Ranch in South Fork, CO. Simply put, this place was wonderful! The home itself is absolutely top notch: very comfortable, well appointed, everything worked, and best of all CLEAN! The grounds were spectacular and equally well done.

All in all, I cannot offer anything about this property that we didn't completely and entirely enjoy!

Family time at the Lazy Suzy Ranch

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property based on the pictures and the location. The house, river and grounds were exactly as the pictures. What a spectacular home in a spectacular location. The house was immaculate. The owner was very helpful in explaining things and then gave us the privacy we desired. We had 8 family members, 5 adults and 3 kids. We all had a marvelous time in a wonderful setting and would love to return.
