Smoke Tree Ranch is NOT your typical destination/hotel. It is a private ranch property with only 6 months of availability for non-residents to stay. If you are lucky enough to be allowed on property, it is quiet, rustic and removed from the "outside" world. Do not expect fancy accommodations for the price. It's simple and very comfortable. The food is... More

I have tried making a reservation now for over a week for a business function which is being hosted there so I have no choice but to stay here. I finally got a live person to pick up the phone and politely asked them to transfer me to an extension given to me and this guy was a total jerk... More

The Smoke Tree Ranch is truly a magical place. It's one of those unique settings where you're right in downtown Palm Springs, but once you get beyond the gates you would never know it. In short, its like a luxury camp for adults. The setting is beautiful, with epic views everywhere you look. The staff is great and the service... More

First off, this is not your typical Hotel, but a Dude Ranch, with a lot of interesting history. There are only 2 ways one can enter the property - you are a guest or owner. Once you enter, you have no idea you are minutes from civilization. It's fabulous for a quiet getaway! The food was unbelievably fabulous and the... More

Smoke Tree Ranch was the second home for Walt Disney prior to his death. There are private homes here and there are rental cottages. Some have been updated and then there are classic units that have not been. The Ranch House is where you check in and where the main dining room is. The grounds include a swimming pool, bowling...

This property was once a top-notch guest ranch. These days the stables are not connected to the "ranch" but they are not too far away if you want to ride horses. The cottage accommodations are fine during the day, but we had a new cockroach every night! Not the small kind, but the HUGE, as big as your thumb kind.... More

This was a fantstic place for a family to visit. Located just outside La Quinta in Palm Springs, this resort catered a wedding event that was fanatstic. Very rustic and natural, Smoke Tree Ranch was still elegant and friendly. Always love La Quinta area. I know the Tucker family had a great time. Thanks, Geoff Tucker

I was unsure about what kind of accomodations to book in the area, but ended up choosing Smoke Tree because so many people I knew had stayed there. It was perfect! We read books, swam in the uncrowded pool, took walks, etc. Smoke Tree has a laid back, but refined atmosphere. The dress code was refreshing: none of the men... More

I cannot say enough about Smoke Tree Ranch in Palm Springs California. The cottages are spacious and have everything you will need for a one night stay or a ten night stay. The RANCH has been left in its natural desert state. The raw beauty of the landscape and the mountains will take your breath away. The stars at night... More
