Cozy cabin in kaibab national fores
Barbara and her husband were spectacular hosts! I messaged Barbara about the rental with a few questions and she responded right away making it very easy for us as we had to book for a last minute trip. They met us at our arrival after we spent the day at the Grand Canyon. (They are just about an hour away from the park!) we were even greeted with a nice and toasty bonfire to sit out and star gaze. The cabin was heated, neat, so comfortable and cute! We told Barbara that we wanted to make the most of the the next day and she offered to have coffee ready for us bright and early in the morning (which she did!) their property is located in Kaibab National Forest. There is plenty to do in and around the property. They took us for an off-road ride on the mountain and lent us a sled. They also have horses, chickens and dogs on the property. We had a chance to pet the horses and play with the dogs. Barbara and her husband also gave us many recommendations on what to see and do in the area. Only wish we had more time to see them all! We had such a fun time staying with them and will certainly be back! Highly recommend booking this space!
Temple ranch is a must stay!
Temple Ranch was a 5 star stay! Barbara and her husband were incredibly gracious and kind hosts. My friend and I stayed in the larger space they have on the property and it was beyond cozy. With a kitchen, cute bathroom and super comfy bed, it was the best place to stay after a long day at the Grand Canyon. We also hung out by the fire pit they have outside.
The next morning we were offered coffee and a tour of the Ranch. We got to meet their three adorable dogs, several chickens and 6 gorgeous horses. They took our experience up a notch by inviting us to drive their Can-Am jeep along a path in the forest. Their property backs up onto the Kaibab National Forest. This was such a trip.
If you are ever in the area, check out the Ranch for an unexpected adventure!
The Temple Ranch Hunting lodge was such a fun place to stay! Barbara was incredibly accommodating to our schedule and I can't thank her enough for allowing us to stay! The lodge has everything you would need, two super cozy beds and a basin of water for washing your hands. Theres patio furniture to sit outside, a fire pit, and a super cute outhouse! My favorite part of the property was how many animals there are! The hosts have chickens, horses, dogs, and Barbara was kind enough to bring out Coco the horse to meet us! Their property also backs up right into national forest property so there are endless opportunities for recreating in the area. You can bring your mountain bikes, side by sides, or even hunt in the area; there are so many trails you can take around. The property was lovely and one of those places where you have everything you need right there.
- Barbara and her husband greeted us and had a fire roaring for us in front of our lodging upon our arrival (9:30pm).
- Barbara was very accommodating and allowed us access to the shower in the retro camper after a morning run (it wasn't being occupied by other visitors, so do not expect this if it is occupied - Barbara was simply very generous to allow this, so I wanted to thank her publicly!)
- Barbara prepared coffee and brought it out to us in the morning.
- The lodge is well-heated and well-insulated (we stayed in the smaller lodge with two twin beds – there is another lodge which has a larger full or queen-size bed I believe).
- Barbara's property and the scenery are beautiful – definitely take advantage of a hike/run out and about the National Forest just right out the back fence of their property!
- Located just an hour and 20 minutes south of the Grand Canyon, this is a fun, care-free, comfortable place to stay if you have plans at the Grand Canyon (ask about accessing a shower though since the small lodge does not have shower access).
This place is so amazing!!!! We really felt home. It is quaint and so peaceful. My only regret is not staying longer!! The hosts were pleasant, quickly responsive, and even went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable for our stay. They even had snacks and water waiting for us on our arrival. I would definitely stay again!
Barbara and her husband were great hosts. A friend and I were staying at Temple Ranch during our trip to the Grand Canyon. We arrived late in the evening and directions were clear so we easily found the lodge. Coffee was brought to us both mornings and we even had the chance to ride the horses. Downtown Williams, Arizona is easy accessible too!
Our new happy place
My family had the most memorable time staying with Dave and Barb at their beautiful Temple Ranch! We stopped by here to end my dads “bucket list” road trip and we’re so glad we did. I can’t list everything that we fell in love with because it is too much.. but here’s a few:
From the pine forest and meadows surrounding the property with wild elk and deer, to the trains passing by and choo-ing in the distance, to their 3 playful Australian shepherds that greeted us every morning, we felt right at home and never wanted to leave! Our hosts feel more like friends after hanging out and getting to know them. Dave and Barb are some of the most creative, friendly people you will ever meet. They have their own wood shop and filled their property with gorgeous pieces of handmade art. They will inspire you to create. These guys are the real deal.
The property is right next to Williams town which is very historic and give you a straight shot to the Grand Canyon and a treasure trove of Native American jewelry.
The bottom line is this place will take your heart if you have a sense of adventure and appreciate good people and Mother Nature.
This place is AMAZING! It is near Bearizona, a Deer Farm, and Williams (with little shops and restaurants). Take your mountain bike for an easy/hard ride on the trails right behind the property. The owners have really outdone themselves with all the little whimsical details. There is a charcoal grill and campfire ring, making it easy to cook outdoors. The outhouse is also a nice, added touch!
