Upscale retreats with laid back luxury. After working hard all year, you deserve a vacation.  

From horseback riding and horse-drawn wagon excursions to hiking, fishing, archery, shooting and so much more, there is no end to the memorable experiences at Cherry Creek Lodge. Buried deep within the Tonto National Forest, guests can experience the full natural beauty of the Arizona highlands right outside our doors.

A stay at Cherry Creek Lodge is an authentic American Cowboy Ranch experience. Visit, interact, pet, and feed our friendly horses, goats, and chickens. Help collect fresh eggs daily from our chickens. Pick vegetables from our garden. Enjoy Lake Sharon, our private three-acre lake. Play on the tire swing at Lake Sharon. Walk and meditate in our Labyrinth. Enjoy stargazing most every night from anywhere on the ranch. Enjoy bird watching over Lake Sharon and see all the various species of birds that live on Lake Sharon. Children love to catch and release our HUGE Bullfrogs and toads, they love to catch crayfish and help turn them into a delicious meal. Nature walks on the seamlessly never-ending grounds of Cherry Creek Lodge to refresh the soul. A great place to bring your mountain bikes, ATVs, Razors, Rangers, dirt bikes, and all your riding toys.

Of course, some people like to relax, enjoying the scenery from the wrap-around deck, or the fire-pit on the patio. We highly encourage all our guests to enjoy every amenity Cherry Creek Lodge experience offers.
