This was our first time at Kohl's Ranch! We loved the view from our room and enjoyed setting outside our room. The room was comfortable and loved the refrigerator and microwave in our studio room. What an amazing place! We were there on a Tuesday night so we had lunch in the bar. The pizza was amazing and also the... More

My sister purchased a getaway night for my husband and me at the Kohl's Ranch Lodge. This place is adorable. There is so much to do from the lawn games to pool to saloon. It was relaxing and the staff were phenomenal. The rooms are adorable and well-equipped. The food in the saloon was amazing! I recommend the Mediterranean Pizza.... More

My husband and I had a four day trip there. It was wonderful! Relaxing, nobody bothers you. Clean, spacious room. So many exciting things to do. If you get bored it's your own fault. Plenty to do inside and outside.

From check in to check out every employee we met was exceptional. We requested a Creek view cabin and they made it happen. The resort is very clean. Our room was very quiet. Bed was comfortable. Sheets were nice and soft. The kitchenette had everything you could ever want. The pots and pans were high quality. I was very impressed... More

We were caught up in a 100mile traffic jam on labor day, rather than doing a 7 hour drive to phx that is usually 2 we dove into the Lodge. Great room price, wonderful room! The bed was amazingly comfortable, grounds are beautiful, staff was exceptional, food was very good. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is... More

We stayed here in March. Weather allowed us to enjoy the outdoor amenities. There were a lot of things for kids to do.... huge chess/checkers games, pool, swing-sets, golf, badminton, bocce ball and more. The wifi was terrible, its free but doesn't work well at all. We read that they had a no pet policy except service pets, however we... More

we went there for a long weekend just to escape the heat...and since it was kinda last minute we couldn't get one of the creekside cabins (which I think would be a MUST, if we ever go back)....but the hotel room was OK and faced the pool. It was a SMALL room and you won't want to hang out there...but... More

Could use some updating but overall this is a nice place to stay and in a great setting if you like the mountains. It is far away from any commerce so don't plan on eating out and being entertained. This is for someone who likes to picnic, bring own food along, and hike.

Located in the Tonto forest, this secluded little gem was a great way for us to finish our trip. The setting is beautiful, set back off the highway, quiet, secluded. lots of trees. The hotel lobby is huge and has a great lodge feeling. The rooms are nicely decorated, good size and have patios that go out into the pool/garden... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When you first arrive at Kohl's Ranch Lodge in Payson, Arizona you will be sure you have truly cornered a little piece of paradise.
