||Lloyd Lane started Lane Guest Ranch in 1953 while a student at the University of Colorado. He has been the sole owner and manager of the ranch for the past 59 years. With no stockholders or partners, he has been able to use the profits for salaries, food, entertainment, and physical improvements. The success of the ranch is apparent by the large number of returning guests. Most new guests learn of the ranch through advertisements in the Wall Street Journal and our web site.
Lloyd Lane was chosen Rancher of the Year in 2009 by Gene Kilgore of Ranchweb.com – the number one internet site for ranches world wide. The Wall Street Journal and Andrew Harper of Hideaway Reports consider “Kilgore is the recognized authority on ranches.” Lane Guest Ranch is recommended in Frommer’s 2010 Colorado Guide Book, and was featured in Travel & Leisure magazine in their June 2007 issue.
