this was our second visit to Kohl's Ranch, love the food and drinks in the bar, staff is very friendly, we were able to get the same room and loved our view of nature outside our patio. Weather was great and able to walk around.

Should I start with the amazing staff? How about the awesome property? We decided to get away from Phoenix for Mother's Day. Eighty minutes later I was sitting by a babbling creek, sipping wine, watching my kids play horseshoes, tennis, ping pong, disc golf, basketball, shuffleboard, and pool. What an oasis in Payson. We will 100% be coming back. Next...

Very clean. Very cowboy themed. Very picturesque. Priced right. But this is no Hyatt. It's not a Fairmont. Dint think luxury here, it's not but it is nice. The room had a cozy feel with cowboy pictures and fixtures. Everything is nice and clean and comfortable .... not elegant. I liked having refrigerator, sink, stove, and plates. I liked the...

Stayed here with my husband and two teenage girls. Read some of the mixed reviews on-line and was a little worried. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and spacious. The two bedroom cabin on the creek was very serene and comfortable. We did a lot of hiking and some horseback riding as well as relaxing by the pool and playing horse...

My wife & I came up here for 3 days, and we will definitely come again! We only stayed in a Studio Efficiency (this is different from a regular studio in that it doesn’t have the full kitchen, but it did still have a microwave & mini fridge). The studios & 2-bedroom units (the 2-bedroom units, as opposed to the...

Stayed here at the spur of the moment. Room was a studio king.

We wanted to experience the Mogollon Rim in a more comfortable way and decided to try Kohl's Ranch. The friendly staff, from front desk to bartenders to maintenance personal, were welcoming and accommodating. The history of the surrounding property and lodge makes the ambience seem even more fitting. The use of the kitchenette in our efficient studio made the stay...

We just discovered this location down the highway from Payson. Nice rustic look and friendly staff, overall very relaxing. The only downfall is the distance from town, but that might be a benefit if you want to get away with it all!

We love the remote location of Kohl's ranch. The grounds are beautiful, the nature and wildlife are abundant. This was our second trip. My husband and I stayed for our anniversary. The only 2 things that are a down fall is that the menu is very limited and a little expensive for what they offer, although the pizza is good....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When you first arrive at Kohl's Ranch Lodge in Payson, Arizona you will be sure you have truly cornered a little piece of paradise. The location is what creates this setting, which borders on perfection. Kohl's Ranch Lodge is at the base of the Mogollon Rim and on the banks of Tonto Creek. All of this comes together in the largest Ponderosa Pine Forest in the world. This stunning, off the beaten path section of Arizona's back country was made most famous by author Zane Grey, who stirred up vivid imagery of a striking land throughout his tales of the Old West. Not to mention, the people here are known for their historically famous, western hospitality. You will revel in the casual and friendly atmosphere that makes each stay here an inviting experience that leaves visitors wanting to come back for more. ... more   less
