We've been going to the Ranch now for 17 years ... the place is MAGICAL!!! Listening to Tom Chambers sing at the BBQ is our most favorite thing EVER !!! His stories and songs are amazing and we ALWAYS book our stay when he is performing !!! The staff is incredibly accommodating and friendly, the food is awesome and the whole place is .... PERFECT !!! We love everything about the Ranch and have created the most beautiful and treasured memories there. The kids program is chock full of activities, from riding lessons and trail rides to fishing and swimming !!! I cannot begin to tell you have special this place has been to us... our most favorite place EVER!!!

Thank you for your comments! Thank you for coming back to the ranch for all these years. Tom has been a "constant" part of the TVR family over many years. He is loved by all! Happy that some of your cherished family memories are of the ranch!

My family (husband, 12 year-old and 10 year-old) stayed at the ranch last July and I am FINALLY getting around to writing a review. We just got back from a beach vacation (Hilton Head Island, SC) and my kids said that they wished we would have gone to the ranch again instead! My kids thoroughly enjoyed the riding program and all of the activities that were geared towards them. It was very nice for my husband and I to enjoy our vacation by ourselves at times as well. We all enjoyed the dinners (especially the cowboy cookout) and afternoons by the pool. The gentleman who did the evening program, Tales of the Tanque Verde, is an excellent storyteller. So good that he managed to freak my kids out and they spent the night in bed with us, lol! I love riding my bike and really enjoyed the bike tours through the desert - the bike guy is very good. Since we were there in July, it was HOT but manageable.

The rooms are definitely on the rustic side and we did find a toad in the bathroom at one point. My husband and I had stayed at the ranch about 17 years ago though, so we knew what to expect and managed our expectations accordingly. It is a ranch and not the Four Seasons. The desert setting is beautiful!

We didn't have a lot of encounters with the staff, but when we did, everyone was personable and helpful. The ranch is extremely quiet at night, so we wish there would have been night-time events or activities, especially considering the fact that there aren't TVs in the rooms.

Overall, it was a great stay and it was nice to "unplug" and unwind from our busy lives back at home.

Stayed: August 2016

My family and I truly enjoyed our 4-night stay at TVR. While there was a little difficulty at check-in (they had no record of our reservation and payment) they said there was some difficulty with their new system and assigned us a room anyway. The room could have been a little cleaner. There were quite a few cobwebs in the windows and a bit of an odd smell that went away after some a/c and deodorant spraying. The beds were comfortable and the view was awesome. Maybe they prep the rooms better if they expect the guests? This was a slow period because of the heat.
Horseback riding was the real reason we stayed and the Ranch offered great instructors and lots of different trails and levels to choose from. The heat caused afternoon rides to be canceled and the kids were only able to take advantage of 1 of 3 rides a day as they cancelled the kids rides after the temperatures reached 95.
Meals were fantastic and the restaurant staff were great. The breakfast ride was a fun experience and the BBQ night was delicious.
Will consider returning during a cooler time of year to allow better use of the facilities.

Thank you for your comments. We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. The summer heat is a hard one to deal with especially this summer with the extreme heat. We hope that you comeback and visit up again in the future!

The ranch is close to Tucson. Shuttle picked us up on time and check in was easy. The staff at the ranch are friendly and helpful. The food alone was worth the trip. We rode horseback every morning. We loved the views, gentle horses & the wranglers. Dog House Saloon is a bonus.
