We could have not picked a nicer place to stay! The one bedroom cabin was very nice and cozy. The view of the creek from the back patio was very peaceful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again for a romantic weekend if you want to unwind a bit. We had cabin 202 the... More

We stayed in a studio for a couple of days (#137) which was near the pool and jacuzzi. The welcoming staff were very pleasant. The room tastefully decorated, comfy bed, quiet and well equipped for a studio with small refrigerator, 2 burner stove, like new dishes and cookware.The grill was just outside of our room. Tonto Creek was running and... More

This is a timeshare sister property to Los Abrigados in Sedona whichalso rents rooms to the public and is actually about 20 minutes out of Payson. Wife and I stayed a couple of nights in room in the main lodge, but there are individual cabins available along the creek, so you might want to try asking for one of those... More

We had a nice relaxing time at Kohl's Ranch. The cabin we rented was "quaint". Bedrooms and kitchen were very small. Everything was very clean! The cabin was dark though, small windows didn't let in a lot of natural light. I was vacationing from Indiana and was looking forward to lots of sun! Pools and other amenities were great for...

I have to tell a family story. My dad was a builder and he discovered Kohl' s Ranch when he built a cabin above the rim back in the 1980' s. He brought the whole family and we fell in love with Kohl's Ranch. It became one of the few places he could truly relax. Daddy passed away this January.... More

Tough property to find if you're driving at night from the east as the signage is very small. We zipped right past, ended up in Payson and had to call the lodge. Signs are much better heading west - look for mile marker 69. Once we got there we were pleasantly surprised at how nice this property is. The grounds... More

At Kohl's you pay a $10 resort access fee that covers your internet access fee along with other facilities. Our experience was that it was so poor you could hardly do anything with it. So, you are really paying for something you don't really get much of ... I wish I had known as I needed to do some business... More

This is truly a gem! If you love the woods & camping but want the convenience of a Studio Apt this is a great place! Right next to the creek! If you ask for creekside you can hear the creek from your patio doorway! Everyone is so nice & helpful! On site restaurant & bar, pool, hot tub, even gas... More

Stayed two days at this rustic lodge. Pleasant, accomodating staff. Clean, crisp mountain air. Hiking and horseback trails nearby. Food on premises was excellent as was the service! Also close to a casino if you like to play the penny slots before spending some time in a hot tub under the stars:-)

Out oF winter and into the high desert spring is always a good idea. After 13 years absence we return to a very traditional ranch setting for a winter break and it was perfect for this deep cold winter! Kohl's Ranch is our perfect vet away location. As much wild country or snow country as a person could want.
