Nice quiet place well out of town in the AZ mountains. Pretty cold off season but we enjoyed our stay. Pleasant room with lots of outdoor games/activities (in season) for all ages. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Strange internet service, very slow, sometimes absent, sometimes blocking commonly visited sites with strange "security certificate' errors. While the on site staff were...

The lodge was cozy and the staff friendly. The bed was very comfortable, which I really appreciate when staying away from home. Because it was the off season, it was not crowded at all. The lodge isn't huge, so I'm not sure how I would have enjoyed staying off of the pool in the busy summer months. For a quiet...

This is a beautiful resort. Cabins are very cute. Unfortunately it rained majority of the time which was a bummer so kids couldn't enjoy pool or activities. Love that they had a kennel so could bring my dogs & great rate. Loved that they had a restraunt so didn't have to go far for dinner or breakfast. Will come back...

We were given false information about our reservation and the staff were not willing to help us. The room descriptions need to be revised. The location is far from town and we couldnt cancel our reservation, so we had to stay here.

We had two 2-bedroom cabins for our group's visit to Payson during Christmas. The rooms were okay except for the mice that visited one of our cabins (and our neighbor's cabin as well). The wifi was painfully slow and unreliable and there is no cell signal. So, this is a perfect place if you like to get away from all....

My husband and I stayed for 3 days. First they are very accommodating if you need to bring your pet. The studios are nice and comfortable. Would have preferred a cabin but none were available right before Christmas. All employees very nice and friendly.

The cabins are very nice, comfortable and well equipped. There is a stable for horseback riding in walking distance. The restaurant on the property serves great pizza, soups, and now my favorite Macaroni and Cheese! I look forward to my next get away there. It is perfect for couples and families with children. There are barbeques by the cabins and...

If you don't mind having mice running around in your unit then this would be ok. We caught 3 mice and there were still more in the unit when we left. We have never stayed in a resort or hotel room that had mice in it. This is uncalled for. Beware if you are not an owner because then I...

Our visit/stay at Kohl's Ranch exceeded our expectations. This is a quaint and quiet property next to Tonto Creek and close to Rim Country fishing lakes. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They made you feel right at home. Our room was clean and comfortable. There are cabins on the property and another guest told me the cabins are very...

Nice room, but service was atrocious. Bartender wouldn't provide the wifi password. Couldn't get me into my room until 5 PM--even though I checked in at 2:30. Air conditioner cycled on and off continually all night, which was disruptive. Put me next to the ice machine, which was also noisy. Also overheard a complaint about the food at the restaurant,...

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.

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.
