Southwestern Lodge with Onsite Fishing and Horseback Riding

Central Arizona’s seemingly endless stretches of rugged terrain sparked creativity in writer Zane Grey. The scenery served as his inspiration for 64 novels and more than 300 short stories, culminating in the Western classic Riders of the Purple Sage. To immerse himself in the landscape he loved, Grey lived near Payson, Arizona. Kohl’s Ranch Lodge sits amid the same picturesque vistas that served as the backdrop for so much of his classic Western fiction.

There’s a rugged cowboy feel to the log-cabin-style property—it’s filled with wagon wheels and southwestern blankets. With this Getaway’s $25 dining credit, you can enjoy breakfast (on Saturday or Sunday), lunch, or dinner at Zane Grey Country BBQ.

Horseback riding, fishing, and hiking are all available nearby. You can take a break on one of the many lounge chairs surrounding the heated outdoor pool, which reflects the towering trees lining the property’s perimeter.

Payson, Arizona: Historical Western Culture on Rugged Mogollon Rim

Pine trees and saguaro cacti cover the nearly 3-million-acre Tonto National Forest, which surrounds the town of Payson in central Arizona. About 35 miles from Payson is one of the state’s most popular outdoor destinations: the Mogollon Rim, a towering cliff about 2,000 feet high that stretches for roughly 200 miles. Hundreds of miles of roads provide access to the rim’s awe-inspiring scenery, passing campsites, hiking trails, and lakes good for fishing. Black bears, bobcats, and white-tailed deer have all been spotted in the forested hills.
