Authentically rustic and perfectly complemented by modern conveniences, it is the ideal destination for a variety of outdoor activities, or the perfect opportunity to just relax and take in the natural beauty of the area. A stay at Cherry Creek Lodge is so much more than a vacation at a common Country Inn or an Arizona Dude Ranch vacation. It is an authentic American Cowboy Ranch experience with modern comforts. Come as a guest and leave as friends. Rates include breakfast, lunch, dinner and one activity.
The story of Cherry Creek Lodge is the stuff of cowboy legends, which has been detailed in several books and the source of many movie plots. In fact, one of the gunfights during the Pleasant Valley War, an infamous range war that started with a dispute between the Graham and Tewksbury families, actually took place right on the ranch. We encourage you to visit our history page to learn more.
