What do you do when you feel young but are starting to look your age? If you’re C Lazy U Ranch, you get a face-lift. The luxury dude ranch outside of Granby marked its 100th year with a $10 million renovation that included updates to the main lodge and all 40 cabins—the new, rough-sawn hardwood floors and bed frames were crafted from beetle-kill pine harvested on ranch property—not to mention the addition of the Adega Wine Room. The celebrations are extending to guests in other ways, too, with special overnight packages (starting at $275 per night, per person, the Trains, Horses & the Wild West offering comes with tickets for the Winter Park Express train); weekly summer fireworks shows; and Prohibition-era cocktail-making classes. Cowboys and cowgirls can also toast to C Lazy U’s milestone with a unique, if pricey, anniversary cocktail. The $100 Bougie Bootlegger—$50 benefits two horse rescue nonprofits—is built around an exclusive barrel of Denver’s Leopold Bros. Cask Select Four-Year Straight Bourbon. To that, we say cheers to another 100 years.
