From surf bum to ski bums in a week.
Yahoo, we made it just in time and hit the resort in the afternoon.
There was great snow and with much excitement my little farm boys who'd
never really been in snow before bounced out of the truck in their
shorts, t shirts and flip flops. Two minutes later now donned in
long trousers, …
I enjoyed the scenery as we drove Highway 60 from Phoenix and Springerville. With our 60 ft. in length truck & RV. The highway goes through some mountains with great switchbacks. We had checked out the road on Google maps street level before deciding on the route. We had to make sure the curves weren't too tight & that Chuck could maneuver our rig around them.
There was one section of road, see picture, that ...
We left Santa Fe in the morning and headed towards the
Petrified Forest National Park. Went
along some of the old Route 66 where it was still in existence and passed
through some of the small towns that had been bypassed. Unfortunately there are no camping ...

Abi & Oli took one last opportunity to do archery and BB guns whilst Charles and I packed the car then took a carriage ride around the ranch with Bonnie and Tom (a very large horse but not quite as big as a shire horse).
At 1pm we all had a BBQ lunch before ...

After removing the boots that are just not made for walking we made our way to the tack shop to have a go at leatherwork. We all took on the largest project, of course, of decorating a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Greer Lodge Resort & Cabins
The wife and I had some unexpected time off at Spring Break this year so we decided to add a night at Greer in the Greer Lodge to the end of a long weekend in Tombstone and riding to the Chiricahua mountains. Had a great ride up highway 191 (the road was virtually empty) and the 60 miles of curves from Morenci to Alpine was amazing with the light traffic load.
After spending many months researching the best place to bring in the New Year for a group of 4 families, we decided on Greer Lodge and Spa. Beautiful pictures and descriptions of a family friendly New Year's Eve sold us on the place. Unfortunately, the true picture wasn't place on their website.
We were looking forward to a quiet, back to nature getaway in luxury surroundings, based on talking with the reservations staff in advance prior to our arrival. And the pictures on the web site looked fantastic, so it had to be true, right???
Historic Lodge Just So So
We stayed in one of the brand new units. Spacious but not remarkable. The area has trout fishing and hiking but beware of mosquitoes. We did not like the restaurant food; it was average at best.
Awsome lodge-great people
My wife and I stayed there last Christmas time and the lodge was absoutly stunning. The decorations in the loby were wonderful. We ate breadfast and dinner and the food was excellant along with the service. We had a room on the lower level that had a 2 person spa, great bed and plenty of room. No phone, TV but a great little Bose stero and nice selection of CDs. We are going back in July to escape the summer Phoenix heat and can't wait. Thanks to the staff for a great time.
Oh my Gosh!!
What a beautiful place! It was like Heaven on Earth!! We stayed in the Mountain Desire room and wanted to take it home with us. The staff was very, very friendly and extremely helpful with information about the area. The restuarant was awesome. We had the bacon wrapped filet and it just melted in our mouths. If you want to get away, you have to go to this place!! Plus they had live music which was great. The only negative was our third floor room didn't have a hydro tub like the first floor rooms.
Wife and I stayed there last weekend - the hotel and the furnishing are beautiful as is the scenery. We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor - "Mountain Delight' I believe it was and the room was very tastefully decorated and very roomy - we fell in love with the 'Heavenly Bed' and are planning on buying one. The staff is wonderful - Megan was a delight. We had massages at the spa and they were well worth the money. The resturant was excellent, breakfast was scrumptous and dinner was super! Absolutely no complaints - we even brought our own shampoo. From talking to Hauk (I know I'm not spelling his name right and I apologize) he mentioned he and Doug (the owner) were looking at arranging a deal with Sunrise to offer room / ski packages this winter. Regardless, the wife and I will be back - anytime of the year, it's well worth the 3.5 hour drive from Phoenix to this wonderful hotel.
Nice but some issues
Greer Lodge is newly renovated and gorgeous. The scenery is amazing. The lodge rooms have wonderful beds and some nice amenities like a couch and recliner. No TV (great), no phones in the rooms, no coffee maker, iron/ironing boards, no closets. We got great shower gel but no shampoo. It's an old lodge and not soundproof. People above us paced all night long for two nights so sleep was not good. Service was wonderful - staff helpful and friendly. Nice restaurant - food decent (avoid the pizza) and the music was great. Will go back to Greer and rent a cabin. Beautiful country. Make sure to see Hawley Lake.
After attending a wedding in Arizona, my wife and I had a FAN! TAS! TIC! time at Greer Lodge in Greer. The scenery was beautiful! This is something you will not find any where else.
A wonderful place to stay!
We had a wonderful time at The Greer Lodge this past weekend. We stayed in the Pony Ridge! The accommodations were the most comfortable we have ever experienced. The staff were all very nice. When we were escorted to our room after arriving from a long drive from Glendale, AZ, we were so surprised to have such a warm welcome and discover the amenities that were in our room. A beautiful bed ensemble with gorgeous pillows, and what comfort that bed was! I never slept in a bed that comfortable with lots of plump lush pillows, a Bose Stereo with CD's to listen to. The bathroom was clean, and the fixtures were beautiful as well. Thanks again for a great time!
