I have loved this spot since my first visit over 30 years ago. It is all about the location. If you live in Phoenix and it's 115 degrees sometimes you just need to cool off. In about 90 minutes you are in the cool pines and will need a jacket at night. Behind the lodge is a creek you want to jump in as soon as you get to.
My daughter enjoyed many family visits to Kohls ranch so I treated her to a night and she came back with rave reviews. A standard room is great if you get it facing the creek. Much better than facing the pool. You can sit out in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine on your patio. The pool and playground were enjoyable and they had no complaints on the food in the lodge where they liked breakfast the most. Only complaint I heard was the beds were NOT comfortable - but neither is a sleeping bag if you were camping.
Now I want to book one of the 2 bedroom cabins for my grown kids to go back together. It's a place we have all loved and now can take the grandchildren.
