I gave this a 3 since I never made it to the lodge, so I don't know if it was good or bad. My GPS, travelling south from Page, AZ, sent me through 75+ miles of bumpy unpaved road in the absolute black of night through the Tonto national forest where there was no cell signal. Eventually - at 2... More

I chose to stay at Kohl's Ranch based upon reviews in TripAdvisor. My stay here was very disappointing. I had a studio efficiency, which was nothing more than an old hotel room. The only rooms available when I arrived had two double beds, which took up almost all of the room. There was a small table and two straight back... More

There is a fine eating facility in the Zane Gray Saloon, a pool with a hot tub and a choice of rooms fro Studio apartments to two bedroom cabins. Located on Tonto Creek, the location offers fishing, wildlife viewing, hiking and a chance to kick back and relax in the quiet f the woods.

this was our second visit to Kohl's Ranch, love the food and drinks in the bar, staff is very friendly, we were able to get the same room and loved our view of nature outside our patio. Weather was great and able to walk around.

Should I start with the amazing staff? How about the awesome property? We decided to get away from Phoenix for Mother's Day. Eighty minutes later I was sitting by a babbling creek, sipping wine, watching my kids play horseshoes, tennis, ping pong, disc golf, basketball, shuffleboard, and pool. What an oasis in Payson. We will 100% be coming back. Next... More

Very clean. Very cowboy themed. Very picturesque. Priced right. But this is no Hyatt. It's not a Fairmont. Dint think luxury here, it's not but it is nice. The room had a cozy feel with cowboy pictures and fixtures. Everything is nice and clean and comfortable .... not elegant. I liked having refrigerator, sink, stove, and plates. I liked the... More

Stayed here with my husband and two teenage girls. Read some of the mixed reviews on-line and was a little worried. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and spacious. The two bedroom cabin on the creek was very serene and comfortable. We did a lot of hiking and some horseback riding as well as relaxing by the pool and playing horse... More

My wife & I came up here for 3 days, and we will definitely come again! We only stayed in a Studio Efficiency (this is different from a regular studio in that it doesn’t have the full kitchen, but it did still have a microwave & mini fridge). The studios & 2-bedroom units (the 2-bedroom units, as opposed to the... More

Stayed here at the spur of the moment. Room was a studio king. WiFi is absolutely horrible, luckily I received Verizon 3g with one bar that was faster then their free Internet provided with a resort fee. Beds are firm.... very firm. Bathroom is split and I am a slim guy and had to almost get in the shower to... More
