I rented this cabin for 2 of my adult daughters and some grandchildren to stay in while other family members were camping nearby.
They were just looking for clean sheets, warm showers and locking doors etc. after visiting the campsite. However, Kohl's Ranch cabins FAR exceeded their expectations. They came back raving about how wonderful their stay was here and they want to have our next family reunion here. It was the perfect setting, the kids loved the creek, the playground, and being able to hike around in the outdoors. The grownups loved the beautiful, well appointed cabin, it had everything needed for a fabulous family vacation!
My family and I really had a wonderful expirience.
This is the 3rd time staying at Kohls Ranch.
And each Time has been just as satisfying as last.
This is perfect for me. While my husband and sons would still like to enjoy the camping expirience I personally find this much more comfortable and less packing and planning.
We had almost everything we needed here. Except for clothes and food.
We will be back God willing next year.
Oh ! Try laying on a picnic table during the night in the dark and watch the stars you might see a few falling stars .
My husband and I enjoyed that.
We had a great time and enjoyed our weekend. The staff was so pleasant and accommodating.
The 2 bedroom 2 bathroom cabin (with full stocked kitchen) was great for our family of 4. MUCH more room then we were expecting, when we come back we will try and order deluxe cabins again. Cabin opens right onto a big grassy area with steps down to the creek - perfect for running and playing. Each is free standing with it's own small porch. Each entrance is on the "same side" of the property so you aren't seeing your neighbors come and go (this is great if you don't know your neighbors, we had 4 kids in our traveling group and were wishing we could sit on our porches and still see everyone). Kitchen, full refrigerator, huge dining table make this cabin easy to stay in for extended periods of time. We were only there for one night. Our next visit will hopefully be longer. Our cabin had 2 sitting chairs in the living room, a couch would have been better for our family and comfort. We had a leak in master bathroom and non-working fireplace, not deal-breakers but at 30 degrees a fireplace would have been enjoyed. Very close to Kohl's Ranch lobby and Zane Grey restaurant which was convenient for us to eat. Knowing size and functionality of the kitchen I would cook in the cabins for future visits. Wifi available, but very slow with poor connection.
Our stay here was perfect. We have four children, and they absolutely loved it. The kitchen was fully stocked minus condiments. Has all the utensils for bbqing too. The back deck overlooked the creek and had a really nice hot tub, which we enjoyed very much. In the resort area, the kids were able to make smores in the evening. Will definitely come back!
Only here for one night the Day of the ASU scrimmage at Camp Tontozona (less than 5 minute drive away). We wish we could've stayed longer. Tucked away in a beautiful spot. We caught trout in the little stream that runs along side the property. Cabin was fully stocked and had everything we needed to make meals. Entire family wants to return.
