The Ranch House sits on a beautiful bluff overlooking the small quaint town of Cottonwood. You can hike right from the The Ranch House into the National Forest. The Ranch House is only a 20 minute drive to Sedona, offering great views, hiking, and site-seeing too. Enjoy beautiful quiet sunsets with a glass of local wine.
The Ranch House, built in 1962, is part of The Ranch at Trails End, LLC. The original owners were part of the Zalesky family that were prominent ranchers in the Verde Valley. Today the Ranch House is still a working horse ranch, we have workshops, retreats and a fabulous space to stay and relax.
Guests have assess to the Ranch House and grounds. Guest parking is located on the property. Coming up the driveway, after you have passed the mailboxes, stay to the left and follow the road around, park by the door and not the RVs that are on-site. These folks care-take the property and the horses. Everyone is can visit the horses, however, you must sign a waiver because we are a working ranch.
