Best kept secret in Oak Creek Canyon, but many "regulars" return so reserve in advance. The lodge is a beautiful log building where Gourmet meals, included in the lodging price, are served. Breakfast is 3 courses freshly prepared; Dinner is to be slowly enjoyed over 1 to 2 hours with several courses that include fresh salads and vegetables from the... More

As a single the small creekside cabins are perfect. Numbers 1-4. Dinner is always special and they seat me with interesting guests. No TV, No phone, very limited WiFi. Perfect spot to relax and recover from the outside world. Nice small library for those of us who still use real books!

Had a great stay Nov 16th and 17th at Garlands. The cabins are perfect. Rustic, clean and comfortable. The main lodge where we met for breakfast, tea time, drinks and dinner was like something out of a picture. The day we arrived it had just rained and snowed and we had to drive across the creek which was quite an... More

My sister and I stayed in a spacious cabin at the top of the hill. There was a king bed and a large sofa bed, plenty of room for two. The cabins are very private and each one is slightly different. The smaller cabins are closer to Oak Creek. The property is lovely, and the cabins are rustic and simple.... More

We used Garlands as our HQ during a fall trip to AZ. It is a gem surrounded by the grandeur of the canyon and right on oak creek. Breakfast was really a standout for us and we had different selections daily. Happy hour 6:00pm was a great way to visit with other guests and share stories of our days. Dinner... More

We had dinner last week at Garland's and it was bad. There are no options at all on the menu. "Minted beet soup" was as bad as it sounds, the "focaccia" was just bread, the pepper sauce on the fish was ok, the "wilted chard" was boiled chard with a bit of olive oil, the fish was good. I liked... More

Turn off the road and drive through a creek to reach the property. It was very rustic and my wife was questioning my choice of staying in a cabin. By the time we left, she wanted to come back for more. Our cabin (named Rainy) had a comfortable bed, real fireplace and all the basic comforts. There was no TV... More

Garland's is our absolute favorite Fall getaway for several years. There are not words good enough to describe the beauty and serene setting on Oak Creek. The cabins are clean and cozy (and well maintained). The staff is all friendly and welcoming. They remember you from stay to stay. Then there is the food! To say it is superb would... More

The Garland family bought the Lodge in the late 60s and built it into a tremendous place to stay, noted especially for its wonderful food. In fact, the Lodge's chef wrote a fabulous cookbook called Sharing The Table. But last year, the Garland family sold the Lodge to three partners. Our experience this time around was very disappointing. We had... More

Thank you for your constructive feedback regarding your stay.

We have been going to Garland's every year for about 10 years, and it's always deserved the highest rating. This year it's under new ownership, and the experience was close to our previous ones --- but not quite there. Mainly, the food is not up to previous standards. The desserts were decidedly of uneven quality. Only one of the three... More
