We really enjoy Kohl's Ranch Lodge because we find it very relaxing or you can be as busy as you desire. Our favorite partial kitchen room in the Lodge helps to make it our home away from home atmosphere. The Staff are friendly and efficient, very accomadating. We would like to see better quality meal items available at the restaurant.

Went here with my wife for a 2-3 day stay. The rooms are best described as rustic with a country-western feel. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the room. Clean and nice. Beautiful setting. The food at the hotel was actually very good. Again, I was surprised. The overall experience was friendly and quiet. This hotel has... More

I added a couple of days at Kohls Ranch onto an itinerary driving from LA to Texas. This was one of my best ideas of the month. It is tucked in the ponderosa pine forest of the Rim Country (a term I discovered while there) and driving out from Phoenix you would have no idea it was going to turn... More

We had a wonderful week in a 2 bedroom cottage overlooking Tonto Creek. The creek was full due to a recent storm so the lovely sound of rushing water lulled us to sleep each night and the air is sooo fresh!. The cottage was clean & comfortable for the 2 of us but I couldn't imagine sharing it with 2... More

Heading south through Arizona, Payson, with the Tonto Natural Bridge seemed a natural stopping point for the night. We checked in to Kohl's Ranch Lodge and found ourselves in a very relaxed, laid back motel with many plusses to it. Service laid back, rooms very comfortable, and the outdoor pool, and absolute gem ticked among the tall pine trees. The... More

We got out late from the Valley and arrived later than we had anticipated. Pulling up to check in after the restaurant had closed presented no issues...they were so kind....made us two bowls of soup and were so accommodating. The lodge room #102 was nice -- at the end of the unit, over looking the creek and close to parking.... More

We stayed two nights at Kohl's Ranch Lodge while on a hiking trip with a large group. It was close to the trails we wanted to hike. We booked a Studio room that had a kitchenette - sink, two burner cook top, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher. This was great for breakfast and fixing our hiking lunches. The front desk staff were... More

We avoided the Labor Day rush & stayed the week following. The grounds were superb & the property is an awesome, tucked-away location by Tonto Creek just off Hwy 260 (still easy to find!). All employees were warm & friendly. We took part in the nightly Smores roast & even had a server from the Saloon come out to check... More

We had a great weekend with friends. We stayed in the lodge (all the cabins were booked). The rooms are simple done, but we didn't spend a lot of time in our rooms. We spent most of our time by the creek, in the pool and in the grassy area. What a great place! Everyone at the front desk was... More

I decided to take my husband to Kohl's Ranch Lodge for our anniversary after having been there some 55 years ago on a rare family outing. The lodge has evolved into a first class resort from the rustic cabin I remember as a ten year old. I loved both visits and my husband wants to move to Payson! The amenities... More
