We have just had 2 nights at the ranch after travelling through America for the last two weeks , John and his team were amazing, a great welcome and nothing too much trouble and a fantastic location Really enjoyed the kayaking and horse riding
Beautiful property, from the rocks rising straight out of the river, to the hikeable mountains with saguaro cacti, the dam / lake, and wild horses! ... so great. The staff was amazingly accommodating. We (family of 4) went horseback riding back-to-back days and the guide was great as well. I recommend a Saguaro Lake Ranch vacation for a peaceful reset, great for kids or without.
Our family had a great visit. Swimming in the pool, kayaking, horseback riding, enjoying the sunsets and the stars and just relaxing. Beautiful grounds, staff friendly and accommodating. Breakfasts were great so I can only imagine how good the dinners would be (unfortunately weren’t offered during our visit). Looking forward to returning someday.
We absolutely adored our stay at the Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch this past February. I really can't wait to go back and explore more of this hidden gem. Traveling with our three teens sons can be a challenge; one of our son's has Autism and we have to ensure that the resort/hotel we choose are not going to overload his senses and can accommodate certain requests. The Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch has been through an Autism training to obtain their certification, so we know their level of understanding and accommodations will be in place when we arrive. The remote location of the ranch along the Salt River allows us to disconnect for a few days and enjoy the kids and the activities in nature. We hiked the trails around the ranch looking for petroglyphs, went kayaking on the Saguaro Lake, and I took a beautiful horseback riding trek around the hills. The ranch is also close enough to places like the Superstition Mountain Museum, Goldfield's Ghost and Mining Town, and Adventures Out West Segway tours. We also treated ourselves to the Cowboy Dinner and the Brisket and Burgers BBQ while there. OMG, amazing food. And they were able to accommodate our request for alternate menu choices for my son with Autism who doesn't eat many of the side dishes that were offered. From start to finish, our stay at the Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch was a dream come true. We had planned to come two years ago, but then the pandemic hit. We waited until it was relatively safe to travel again and was so excited to bring our family to stay at this amazing autism-certified ranch.…
this was everything we were looking for and more- my mom and I spent two nights in feb and the weather was perfect. We did kayaking and horseback riding which were wonderful. Everyone was lovely and the breakfast/main lodge was cozy. The views and property are beautiful. Rooms are comfortable- we drove offsite one night for dinner and the other night had the burgers and bbq at the ranch. Will be recommending this place for sure!
My Partner and I spent Thanksgiving at the Guest Ranch.We received a warm welcome and went to our Cabin.The Cabin was very cozy. Thanksgiving dinner was fabulous. We ate outdoors and the Meal was fantastic. The Chef outdid himself and the staff did a wonderful job. The Managers are wonderful people. We will be going back in t h e future.
My review could go on and on about our wonderful two night experience at Saguaro Lake Ranch. I could even post our photos of our beautiful surroundings there. I would rather you wonder and experience the ranch as we did. Let me add this about the associates ~ “When a team feels like family to their guest. They will go all out to love and serve one another.”
It was a great birthday weekend celebration. We had a solo cabin and it was great. There was a huge front porch to sit on and enjoy the view and the fresh air. Everything you needed was in the room. The staff was great and very helpful. The Sunday hot breakfast was good. The only thing missing from this great spot is a meal option on the property for all three meal times.
Peaceful trip down the river. The kayaking was easy for beginners. Some spots had no current, which is fine. We did see about 8 wild horses in last half of the trip. We took the ‘left’ fork a few times- it wasn’t much different than the right forks. Overall- thought it was a great activity and a great way to see Arizona!!
We rented some kayaks and went on a 2 hour excursion down the Salt river. First half was very quiet and felt close to nature. Second half went through public access area and became more crowded. Life jackets and a lesson provided. $50 per person on Labor Day weekend… really not bad.
