From check in to check out every employee we met was exceptional. We requested a Creek view cabin and they made it happen. The resort is very clean. Our room was very quiet. Bed was comfortable. Sheets were nice and soft. The kitchenette had everything you could ever want. The pots and pans were high quality. I was very impressed...

We were caught up in a 100mile traffic jam on labor day, rather than doing a 7 hour drive to phx that is usually 2 we dove into the Lodge. Great room price, wonderful room!

We stayed here in March. Weather allowed us to enjoy the outdoor amenities. There were a lot of things for kids to do.... huge chess/checkers games, pool, swing-sets, golf, badminton, bocce ball and more. The wifi was terrible, its free but doesn't work well at all. We read that they had a no pet policy except service pets, however we...

It was a SMALL room and you won't want to hang out there...but...

Could use some updating but overall this is a nice place to stay and in a great setting if you like the mountains. It is far away from any commerce so don't plan on eating out and being entertained. This is for someone who likes to picnic, bring own food along, and hike.

Located in the Tonto forest, this secluded little gem was a great way for us to finish our trip. The setting is beautiful, set back off the highway, quiet, secluded. lots of trees. The hotel lobby is huge and has a great lodge feeling. The rooms are nicely decorated, good size and have patios that go out into the pool/garden...

Took trip to see sights in Payson with extended family in April, and loved our overnight stay at Kohl's Ranch! Peaceful and quiet for the adults, being in the woods next to the creek, and also great for kids as the property was full of families. There was a game room where the kids played ping-pong together as well as...

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
