Lower Lake Ranch happens to be the oldest guest ranch in the State of Colorado, dating back to the 1860’s when it was first homesteaded by Anton Glasmann’s family. By 1878, the ranch manager and wife, Johann & Elizabeth Jensen continued the Guest Ranch operation after Anton’s death, building the ranch to over 3500 acres of Great Outdoor recreation. Today, Lower Lake Ranch is a continuation of years where guests have enjoyed this Rocky Mountain Venue known as, A Great “Little Mountain Resort”. The ranch has been a place to build memories.

LLR staff has been privileged to host many 4th, 5th and 6th generation events and even weddings where during their stay a Granddaughter getting married learned that LLR was the ranch that grandma or grandpa attended a summer camp in the early 1920’, or she learned this was the guest ranch where their grandparents attended a picnic at the Old Historical pavilion back in the 50’s or 60’. Great Views, Great Food, Unbelievable Hospitality, and Years and Years of future memories, is what Lower Lake Ranch is all about. If you have any questions during or after your visit or would like to make a Reservation, please ask or call staff later at 303-838-6622.

I still can’t get over how magical our wedding was. We looked at so many venues before choosing Lower Lake Ranch. It truly is the total package. It has epic views, beautiful ceremony sites, spectacular reception sites, good food, and nice onsite cabins. The staff, especially Vera & Drayton, were professional, kind, flexible and super accommodating.  If you are looking for an all-inclusive, romantic, relaxing, rustic, mountain chic wedding, you cannot beat Lower Lake Ranch!

My daughter’s wedding was held at Lower Lake Ranch during 4th of July week and I was very impressed. The facilities were wonderful and Vera and Drayton were wonderful hosts. The views were spectacular and all our family and friends were able to stay on the grounds together which made the event more special. I would definitely recommend Lower Lake Ranch to anyone who wants a destination wedding in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.!
