Enduring over 30 years of change in the Vail Valley, the Lazy J combines the best of the old west with a bit of the new.

Lazy J Entrance

Owned by the Jouflas family for nearly 100 years, it's a ranch as rich in history as it is in natural resources. At its peak, the Lazy J encompassed 11,000 acres of land, ran 14,000 sheep and leased half million acres of national forest land. See a map of our facilities or visit the photo gallery to view our beautiful land and its amenities...

You can rent the ranch for a day, or just an evening.


The ranch is equipped two open air pavilions, a big ol' lawn area (perfect for croquet, volleyball, bocce ball, etc.), 4 regulation size horseshoe pits, a gazebo, a cook house, a clubhouse and retail shop, and a 25-foot diameter stone fire pit to relax around . . . and that's all in addition to our championship sporting clays course, 5 stand shooting facility, 4 miles of private river, and a pretty doggone big backyard for horseback riding!


George Jouflas and his children still run the ranch today, and would be pleased to welcome your group.
