The guest ranch has a beautiful location along the Salt River. The nearby cliffs provide a stunning backdrop to an already wonderful vista. One can sit outside their room or cabin and enjoy a peaceful, tranquil moment or hour - it's up to you. The managers of the resort are wonderful and go out-of-their way to help make your stay...

This place in an excellent escape from the city and only a 20min drive! The owners are very welcoming and considerate. The views of the surrounding areas are amazing and make sure you go tubing to get the full experience. I highly recommend this spot for a group outing or small break from the city life!

It is an amazing find so near the civilization. If you are looking for some adventures, breathtaking views, relaxing water activities, quiet hikes, starry sky away from the city and a little taste of ranch home life, but don't have the time to drive for hours to get there from Phoenix, give this a try. I have lived on a... More

This was my second trip to the Saguaro Lake Ranch and I loved it.....again. These are ranch style accommodations filled with down home hospitality. Leave your phone at home or turned off and enjoy the quiet and serenity that only the desert can offer. Bring your camera. The backdrop of the Goldfield Mountains at sunrise and sunset are fantastic and... More

I have been up to the Ranch 4 times in the last three years and i can say nothing but positive things about the staff, facilities and grounds. I have come up with two different groups, one as small has 10 people and the other with 30 people. The staff has always going out of their way to make sure... More

We just booked a night when traveling west from Florida to LA and were very positively surprised. We arrived around 4pm on a very hot day in early September, and the owner recommended us to take a tube ride on the river around the bend. Wow what an amazing experience!!!!! It made our day/week/trip! 30 minutes floating on a river... More

A very friendly and welcoming family run ranch. We had a fabulous time here. The room is comfortable and the setting is beautiful and peaceful. Just what we needed after a long trip. We went for a scenic walk around the ranch (this was in May). We would have liked to have stayed longer and gone kayaking and horseback riding... More

Well the rooms are (quirky) as they are as they were originally built so I understood from John. We had a room in the main building and were the only ones there for the 2 nights we stayed. What a great place to spend our time, we relaxed and took in the ambience of this ranch. Sunsets on the red... More

I booked this ranch based on reviews I saw on Trip Advisor. My friends and I were pleasantly surprised and could not have been happier with the atmosphere, location, the manager, John and his wife! Our cabin was located near the river below the dam. We were entertained by the beautiful wildlife around us. The red rock mountains to the... More

Great staff! Scenery is spectacular, especially watching the sunset on the mountain peaks. Quiet and restful. A bit rustic but that adds to the charm. By the way, the breakfast on the porch was terrific. Thanks to John and Sean A'lee for making our stay so special.
