We stayed at the Cave Creek Ranch when we were in Portal Arizona for a birding trip. There are several buildings each having several rooms and one stand-alone cabin. We stayed in an end unit by the creek; not luxurious but very comfortable. Very relaxing stay and you can watch the birds when Reed Peters, the owner and manager, puts out bird seed early in the morning. There is no restaurant at the ranch so you either cook your own meals or go to a nearby general store and cafe. If you go into the birding areas, some of the roads are not paved, and it is very dusty.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cave Creek Ranch is a peaceful retreat from the modern world. Surrounded by spectacular scenery, the simple rooms and cottages are clean and neat. While there is Wi-Fi on our front porch, the rooms are free of modern noise and distractions -- no cell service, TVs, or radios. We do have a small library in every room, and more books on natural history available to borrow from the office. Guests tell us they haven't slept so well in years; we think it's because they can relax and get away from the news. Cell service is available a mile away in downtown Portal. ... more less
