We spent the weekend at the ranch for our son's wedding. It was the perfect spot for our small family gathering, with both inside and outside places to mingle, and a spectacular setting for the wedding itself. The ambiance is quirky and rustic, but comfortable. Excellent food, and lots of it. Staff is very attentive to guests.

I've been here twice for work retreats, and had a wonderful time both times. The cabins are cozy, beds are comfortable, area has lots of trails and interesting things to explore (Biosphere 2 anyone??), and most of all the food was very tasty and the staff was excellent. The COD ranch is close enough to Phoenix that the drive isn't... More

I stayed in the old bunkhouse from the late 1800s which has been lovingly restored. It was magic with thick adobe walls and a large front porch with great views. it also had a huge kitchen which made me feel right at home. My stay was fantastic. I found so much peace being there. Something about the place and the... More

The views are magnificent, the accommodations very comfortable. The kitchen staff works very hard to make meals for different types of needs (I am gluten free). Eric and Steve are very welcoming and I highly recommend this for any type of retreat!

This is the second time that our group has met here for 4-day retreats. It is a beautiful natural setting with glorious views and lots of peace and quiet. The lack of distractions allowed the group to bond well. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. The food is served buffet style, is plentiful and those who are gluten intolerant... More

I highly recommend C.O.D. Ranch! The vistas are beautiful, the staff is very friendly and hard-working. The food is great too! I would go again in a heartbeat. (I was there for a yoga retreat -- Joyful Hearts Yoga of Tucson is also highly recommended!)

Our church from Show Low, AZ just had our women's retreat at this ranch. I have only good things to say about it, the staff and the food. True, some of the rooms are older - "historic" should give you a clue. But they are freshly painted and clean. We had clean, made up beds and our rooms were decorated.... More

“All the rooms are good. It really depends on the size of your group and personal preferences. Do you want to be closer to the main kitchen? Do you want to be a little further from the center of the Retreat? Ask the proprietors. They are very accommodating.”
