This is a member resort as well as a hotel, so the conditions are somewhat different than when reviewing a standard hotel. The staff were very helpful, but were often also very busy - they probably need more front desk staff. The room itself was presentable and reasonably well stocked with towels and toiletries. However, as with a lower-priced motel, heating and cooling were provided by a through-the-wall unit that was very noisy, requiring us to wear ear-plugs while sleeping. Otherwise, the room itself was in a very quiet location within the main building. Considering there is no convenience store or supermarket within 15 minutes drive of the resort, it was surprising that there was no on-site store. The small 'sundries' display and ice cream cabinets in the foyer were sparesly stocked, as was the vending machine in the hallway. As a result of their isolated location, the hotel restaurant is able to charge premium prices for rather mundane food. $19 for a basic burger and fries was too high. Clearly we should have been more prepared ourselves - much of the resort consists of cabins and rooms that provide for self-catering. However, we were unaware when booking this stay, so we did not bring food or drink with us. A small gym was a welcome addition to our stay. Another nice addition was a free EV charger in the parking lot. Unfortunately, it can only be turned on by a maintenance person on request, and they only work during the day. The front desk staff do not have access

Kaylee was very friendly and helpful during our check-in! She confirmed the hot tub was open until 10 pm. I was very much looking forward to a nice hot soak after three long days of driving. Unfortunately, the hot tub was NOT hot - it was barely warm 😞 Sooooo disappointing, especially since we paid the 'resort fee' of $20 per night. We were also disappointed the restaurant was not open, as it's a 20 minute drive back to Payson. Potential guests should be sure to check that before booking. The property is beautiful and our room had everything we needed. I liked the rustic style :) I look forward to staying here again for a longer stay.

Terrific little gem outside of Payson. We were there in off season so restaurant not open which left little dining options so plan ahead. Price was terrific compared to Payson. Staff is terrific and built us a fire. Property needs to dump the "resort fee" and just raise their rates if they feel they need to cover the expenses of WIFI, gardens etc. In the winter with limited "resort" amenities, makes this fee seem ridiculous.

This place is beautiful! Staff very friendly (Morgan was very welcoming at check in, and made us feel as if we were home). Very clean, and bed was very comfortable. You can walk out side and enjoy a beautiful mountain scenery, and walk down to a small creek flowing along the side of the ranch. Just amazing! Will definitely come back! Overall a wonderful experience!!

We booked our stay on short notice. Our overall impression was pleasing! We weren't able to dine there as stated through Expedia, but the Front Desk recommended a bar and grill only three miles from the lodge. Food and patrons were great!
