We had a nice relaxing time at Kohl's Ranch. The cabin we rented was "quaint". Bedrooms and kitchen were very small. Everything was very clean! The cabin was dark though, small windows didn't let in a lot of natural light. I was vacationing from Indiana and was looking forward to lots of sun! Pools and other amenities were great for...

I have to tell a family story. My dad was a builder and he discovered Kohl' s Ranch when he built a cabin above the rim back in the 1980' s. He brought the whole family and we fell in love with Kohl's Ranch. It became one of the few places he could truly relax. Daddy passed away this January....

Tough property to find if you're driving at night from the east as the signage is very small. We zipped right past, ended up in Payson and had to call the lodge. Signs are much better heading west - look for mile marker 69. Once we got there we were pleasantly surprised at how nice this property is. The grounds...

At Kohl's you pay a $10 resort access fee that covers your internet access fee along with other facilities. Our experience was that it was so poor you could hardly do anything with it. So, you are really paying for something you don't really get much of ... I wish I had known as I needed to do some business...

This is truly a gem! If you love the woods & camping but want the convenience of a Studio Apt this is a great place! Right next to the creek! If you ask for creekside you can hear the creek from your patio doorway! Everyone is so nice & helpful! On site restaurant & bar, pool, hot tub, even gas...

Stayed two days at this rustic lodge. Pleasant, accomodating staff. Clean, crisp mountain air. Hiking and horseback trails nearby. Food on premises was excellent as was the service! Also close to a casino if you like to play the penny slots before spending some time in a hot tub under the stars:-)

Out oF winter and into the high desert spring is always a good idea. After 13 years absence we return to a very traditional ranch setting for a winter break and it was perfect for this deep cold winter! Kohl's Ranch is our perfect vet away location. As much wild country or snow country as a person could want.

Perfect location for a laid back vacation. New restaurant management has really made a difference - don't miss the opportunity even though you have cooking facilities in your unit. Staff are very accommodating and efficient.

This was a great stay at a resort that I didn't realize had so much history. The staff was great and Gail at the front desk was super at check in with accommodating my handicap in laws with a room. We will be back to check in at an earlier time to really enjoy everything this resort has to offer....

Great place to stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very nice. The area is great too. The gentleman that works there was very courteous and would always ask us if we needed anything, He always kept the fireplace going and was very courteous.

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
