Flying E Ranch
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Wickenburg
Reviewed May 28, 2006

My inlaws spent their honeymoon at the Flying E ranch over 40 years ago and have been back several times since. We met them out there for a few days this Spring and had the best family vacation! We stayed in the family house, equipped with 2 large beds, 2 cots for the kids, a large bathroom with jacuzzi, sitting area and small bar area with refrig. The closets were big enough to be small dressing rooms and allowed for privacy with 6 people staying in the house! Everything was immaculate! The grounds, the rooms, the pool - EVERYTHING! Happy hour (BYOB) available for the adults. Riding available twice daily. The food was wonderful - they even fixed something different for the kids if requested. By far, the biggest draw are the people. Every single one of them loves this place and welcomes you like family. My son wouldn't let us leave until he went around telling everyone goodbye. We're already planning on returning next spring.

My family stayed at the Flying E Ranch in April of 2006. This was our first experience at a "dude ranch" and had limited riding experience. The experience exceeded our expectations. The staff went out of their way to make sure we felt comfortable riding. We booked one of the family rooms and it was great - very large and very clean. The food was wonderful and the staff really seemed to love what they do. We hope to plan another trip to the Flying E in the very near future.

I've stayed in many great places over the years, but Flying E Ranch is near the top of the list for cleanliness, friendly folks, and atmosphere. It is touted as "the riding ranch", but it's also very comfortable for people (like me) who don't ride horses but enjoy the casual western lifestyle. Rooms are comfortable, with twin or king beds, 2 chairs, good lamps, tiled bathroom, and either a private or shared wetbar with refrigerator, sink, and a few kitchen items. A dinner bell summons guests to the ranch dining room where tasty meals are served family style around big wooden tables. For riders, there are two rides a day with groups divided by ability level. For non-riders, a lounge chair by the lovely pool is a fine way to spend the day. The ranch is only 3 miles outside the nice town of Wickenburg, so a person can make short trips into town for shopping, a visit to the western museum,or perhaps a bit longer drive to one of the old mines in the area.
Some of the guests enjoy a card or board game in the evening while others watch TV or curl up with a good book. While we were there a lively family bluegrass band played one night. Earlier in the week there had been square dancing. This is a place for all ages.
Guests included married couples, honeymooners, and old friends enjoying a riding vacation without their spouses or kids. Children are welcome, and there is one room equipped with TV, VCR, and kids games. Many guests are repeat visitors. We shared the ranch with about 20 others from places such as Toronto, North Carolina, Missouri, and California. We are already planning our own "same time next year" trip. Previously my favorite vacation spot has been Hawaii, but I might have to trade in my tropical wardrobe for boots and a cowboy hat!
