This place is fabulous. I have stayed here twice and both times have been wonderful. The staff is great, the amenities are wonderful, and the location is superb. They are so hospitable and I love that they provide games to play. It is such a wonderful, relaxing getaway. Dogs are always welcome!

If you want a fancy hotel then this is not the place for you but......if you want a nice place in the pines with a fireplace, dishes & stove to cook with or just down the road from a restaurant - this is ABSOLUTELY awesome. Staff is very nice and other guests were friendly & respectful. Like I said, we...

This is my families first time coming here after being referred to this place (repeatedly) by friends of our that are "regulars". Absolutely adored our little cabin in the woods.

We had a great stay at Pioneer Cabin 3 at Christopher Creek Lodge. Very rustic and a perfect getaway from Phoenix. We enjoyed the cool weather and the change of seasons (something we miss here in Phoenix). Our cabin was right on the creek but just on the other side of the creek was the main road. A little noisy...

I'm not a tent and sleeping bag kind of guy and this was perfect! I stayed in the Pony Express motel area, a rustic room with a very nice bed with a loft with more sleeping accommodations. The area is thick with pine trees, oak trees and squirrels, which are so entertaining to watch. Good mountain biking trails close by...

Hi Joe. Thank you for choosing Christopher Creek Lodge for your outdoor getaway without the camping!
