A friend had told us about this little jewel hidden along the Verde Valley River in Cottonwood, AZ.
Boy were we pleasantly surprised! There was something for everyone, from child to adult. A tractor wagon ride, animals to pet, roping lessons, pistol shooting gallery, gift shops with "one of a kind" items, a wood carvers display, and a very well stocked saloon with everything from Sarsaparilla to local Arizona wines. Dinner was in the form of a good old chuck wagon meal with excellent ribs and chicken, cowboy beans, baked potato, and a fabulous coleslaw. The opportunity for seconds or more was only a request away. Pitchers of water, lemonade, and iced tea graced the tables. But the best was yet to come. The entertainment was absolutely outstanding. If you like country music you will have thought you had gone to heaven.

Had a nice night. Shot a colt 45. Tried roping, I'm not now nor ever could be a cowboy. Had a good time over all. The show was very good ,we had a table front and center of the stage. The food was ok but that's all. There was a lot of it however if your only going their to eat,DON"T.

The "chuck wagon" cookout was fantastic. The atmosphere was very authentic, including tin cups and plates, picnic tables and western decorations. The ribs,chicken and rest of the meal was delicious. Entertainment is first rate and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Get there around 5:00 and let your children try the shooting gallery with authentic 6-shooters.

We had no idea what to expect when we were invited to go to the Blazin'M Ranch's murder mystery night. Boy were we ever pleasantly surprised. The cast of characters was great! They obviously enjoy these murder mystery nights, as they seemed to be having as good a time as the audience. When is the last time you laughed until you cried? How refreshing in this day and age to find just plain fun entertainment for all ages. I'd tell anyone to go to the Blazin' M. Next we will try the cowboy show there which I hear is wonderful also. It was a nice night complete with shops, games, a show, and an included cowboy dinner. Heck, I want to return with friends just to better my score with that Colt pistol at the shooting range. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's an enjoyable time for all.

We are a British family with 2 boys, ages 10 and 12 and we all really enjoyed our time at the ranch. We loved the friendly, welcoming atmosphere, the excellent food and the top-quality entertainment. An added bonus was that we also met some really lovely people at our table. Yet another great experience in our 3 week trip, which has left us with such a positive feeling about the US. Thank you.
