“We didn't want to leave this enclave of luxury”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We stayed four nights at this wonderful ranch and easily wished we had four more. Somehow we managed to enjoy the pool, riverside dining, smores at night, evening horseback riding, the fitness room and mountain bikes and still have time to explore the Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park with Tyler (highly recommend) and the Island in the Sky at Canyonlands National Park. This ranch and Moab, in general, is such a hidden gem. The Peace Tree Cafe in downtown Moab was a great lunch spot. And when we did have time to relax back at the ranch, my favorite activity was just sitting in our porch swing overlooking the Colorado River and beautiful red and yellow mesas. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: River View Family Suites all have exquisite views was very comfortable for our family of five.

Green Features: Very impressed by their entire operation from water and waste management to their beautiful garden which provides wonderfully fresh produce served in the restaurant.

We stayed for for 4 nights at this beautiful ranch along the Colorado River for the 1st part of our Southern Utah tour, and so glad we did! We booked late, but the 3 of us (2 adults and 16 year old son) were fortunate to book a Double Mountain for the 1st 3 nights, and then were moved to a Deluxe King (plus rollaway) with fantastic views of the Colorado River, for the last night. Both rooms were great, but highly recommend river view rooms, although mountain view were absolutely fine. Although normally I do not like having to pack up mid-stay, the move was flawless and the staff arranged to move our belongings while we were out canyoneering in Moab, which were there when we got back late in the day! In addition to canyoneering (which was awesome and booked through Moab Adventures), we would also highly recommend doing the Westwater Canyon rafting trip through Moab Adventures, as well as the Fiery Furnace hike booked through the lodge. Andrew, the Sorrel guide who led this hike was incredible, and an Ohioan to boot. :) Although it is a drive to Moab (20-25 minutes), I would highly recommend this lodge over anywhere else in Moab, including Red Cliffs, where we ate for dinner only. Sorrel has a much more intimate "lodge" feel to it, and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: If available, would highly recommend a river view room!

This place has incredible views and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It's about 30 minutes out of Moab which we didn't expect, but after arriving we realized that the location was much better than anything in Moab. My husband and I are both experienced riders so their horse ride was a bit slow paced for us, but the trail and views were breathtaking. The restaurant was excellent and the drinks on the river deck were exceptional. Easily the most comfortable bed i've ever slept in at a hotel let alone a ranch in the middle of the desert.

Room Tip: The river view rooms are worth it. The light from the river dances on the ceiling in the morning, an...

After our dreadful dinner at red cliffs the night before and hearing that sorrel ranch has had a few changes of ownership recently we were delighted with the food and the service. All the staff were exceptional and very welcoming. We had three courses and the food was very fresh. Evening a delight,
, good fresh food and vegetables, decent wine list and great service. Looks as if it would be great to stay there....

if you want an upscale experience with the beauty of moab and the solitude this area has to offer then stay here. The accomadations are lovely, the staff cordial and accomadating and a pleasure to deal with. The food is a little pricey but the dining atmosphere is lovely in either the formal dining room or the bar. Walk along the Colorado river, ride a horse, mountain bike, hike or any other adventure you can think of in moab and then return to the best place to relax, wine and dine- the sorrel river ranch.

Room Tip: river view-the only way to go!

We have the highest recommendation for Sorrel River Ranch Resort!! We loved our room so much we began to call it "home", and found new things to appreciate about the resort every day. We loved the Western decor, the stunning location, the friendliness and outstanding service by the staff. (An example: when we casually asked an offhand question of the server who poured water at dinner, she returned 5 minutes later with a map and directions and information about the sight we were discussing!). The food was outstanding, from the halibut and grilled fillet dinners, to the amazing french toast at breakfast. We loved the s'mores by campfire at night, and the views of planets and stars through the high powered telescope brought by an astronomer on Thursday nights. The pool was even more lovely in person than it appears in photographs and has a hot tub with a beautiful view as well. We loved pedaling bikes to get around, or enjoyed our strolls on the water. Takes 30 minutes to get to Moab and activities that start there, but it was a scenic ride and gave an excuse to dine and visit the town. Couldn't recommend this trip any more highly!! (Our 15 year old daughter and 13 year old son felt the same way.)

Room Tip: It would have been nice to be closer to the main building and pool, but it was a relaxing walk or ve...

My husband and I recently stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The property is beautiful. It only has 52 rooms so it never felt crowded. The cabins were spacious and clean and had a small kitchen (microwave, coffee and refrigerator). This was great because the ranch is 30 minutes from town so we bought breakfast items and snacks to cut down on multiple trips a day. All the staff members we encountered were so nice and helpful. We did eat at both restaurants. One is casual and the other a bit fancier. Both had pretty good food but a bit pricey and not a huge menu selection. We didn't travel with kids but they offer a nightly campfire with s'mores kits that seemed to be a big hit with the kids and families. The property has 40 or so horses that were beautiful. It is about a 30 minute drive to Arches National Park. We would definitely recommend this property!
