“Best Lodging on the Mogollon Rim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Usually when I am going to this part of Arizona, it is to camp. This time, I was going for a long weekend for a family event. As it tends to rain heavily at this time of year, I decided that camping wasn't probably a great option.
There are a lack of hotels/motels in this area, so I found this place on TripAdvisor and decided to book.

What a nice place to stay. Two bedroom/two bathroom condo. The room was very nicely appointed and the full kitchen was very nice to have. Everything is really clean in the room. Living room had a fireplace, but it was a bit too warm to use and I didn't want to waste the energy of turning down the a/c just to use the fireplace.

If you have any trouble walking two big flights of stairs, you will probably want to ensure when you make the reservation that you are in a ground floor unit. If you are in the buildings with the shops, those units are all upstairs.

Nice pool area.

Green Features: They have bags for recycling and use all eco-friendly detergents and cleaners.

Thank you for choosing Bison Ranch for your vacation destination! We're hoping it kept you out of the rain and dry!

Thank you for thinking about conserving energy with your a/c and fireplace usage. We very much appreciate those that are conscious of our efforts! You also took the time and noticed our recycle bags and our eco-friendly products for cleaning! We appreciate that you took the time to notice these things! We strive to make your stay as great as possible, and use the best green eco-friendly products.

Our property doesn't have elevators unfortunately. Each upstairs room has 20 steps leading to your doorway. If you ever need a ground floor, you must call the resort directly to see if we can make the accommodations.

The pool is a wonderful area to hang out with your family and friends. The weather here in the White Mountains makes it easy to enjoy. You still get to soak up the sun, but it isn't too hot to make it uncomfortable.


Thanks again!

Our first time in Overgaard. Wow is a great lead in statement. Restaurants, shops and amenities are outstanding. Pool and hot tub clean and area well kept. Room has all the conveniences of home. Gas grill and kitchen were great for eating in. Perfect jumping off point for day trips to areas of interest.

This is a great place to stay. We stayed at this World Mark Resort during the Easter/spring break. The days were quite warm and the nights downright frosty. The fireplace was a perfect addition even though the central unit maintained perfect comfort, whatever the outside temperature. The 2BR/2BA was spacious and perfect for our 3 adults and 1 teen (it had a pull down bed in the living area). The kitchen was clean, roomy and appointed. The staff had ensured a small starter supply of those little things one often forgets e.g. coffee filters/paper towels etc.. The pool and hot tub were open and numerous things going on even though we were not around to use them. We used the resort as a staging point for day trips to Sedona, Grand Canyon etc. I do have some heartburn with the $4/day charge for WI-FI; seem a bit cheesy. That aside, I would highly recommend this resort for couples or families and will certainly use it again if I’m visiting the area

We came in to town in the worst snowstorm of the year, but even that was beautiful. Everything you need is here. We made day trips to the Petrified Forest National Park and also the Painted Desert. We went to the Canyon de Chilly National Park as well as the Montezumas Castle, Montezuma's Well, the Hubble Trading Post and numerous drives through the Tonto National and Sitgreaves National Forest. Spectacular views and uncommonly kind people. We were so delighted with the service, the amenities, the lovely fireplace, and the wildlife. While stopped to cahnge into a sweatshirt on Route 260 we saw both a coyote and three days later a Mexican Gray Wolf. The elk are numerous and camera snaps are possible.

Room Tip: Take first floor and south facing rooms for bright sun and good views. BBQ and sitting shower in the...

This resort was great. The whole staff is great and very helpful.. We were there out of season but still found a lot to do. Pool still closed but the hot tub was great. Everything nice and clean and the grounds well kept.. The stores in the complex were all great shopping.. The owners all really friendly and helpful. We had a 2 bedroom upper unit and the stairs are pretty steep for the elderly. and getting your stuff upstairs was tiring. Wish the master had a bathtub, but the hall bath had one.

I love this resort. The staff is wonderful, they worked very hard to take care of any concern that I might have. The unit was fantastic. It was large, clean, comfortable and very well-equipped. The location is beautiful with lots of nature to explore. This is one of my favorite places to visit and I will come back whenever there is an opportunity!!!!

This resort is first rate even in the off season/shoulder season. Our 2BR/2BA unit was very large, clean and had a very well-equipped kitchen. There is a washer/dryer in the unit and a BBQ on the balcony which was easy to use. While the pool was not yet heated, the hot tub was, as well as the childrens pool. There is a nice playground and open areas for kids to play. There is a nice clubhouse with pool tables and ping pong, which you can use for a nominal charge. There is a very small exercise room. And while we stayed here on a timeshare exchange, there was no sales push. The businesses on the grounds were all closed, most due to open mid-April. The staff here were very friendly. This resort is located in the small town of Overgaard. There is almost nothing to do in the town itself, but if you are willing to drive, there are several wonderful day trips to take, including the Petrified Forest/Painted Desert National Park. Couple of other things. The grocery store in town is small with a fairly poor selection of foods, and the produce was marginal. There is a Safeway in Show Low (35 miles) and one in Payson (40 miles), so stop there to do your shopping. And while the wifi works great, there is a weekly charge of $14.95, and you can only hook up 2 items. You cannot purchase additional service. This is a real inconvenience. For the 3 of us with 2 Ipads, one laptop and one Kindle Fire, we had to make the decision as to which two items would be on the wifi.
We would definately stay here again, and would recommend this to our friends. The resort and the set up of the units made this a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms over the pool/playground area are nice if you have kids, so you are able to sit on your balcon...
