The Ranch at Death Valley

An oasis in the desert

The Ranch at Death Valley is a veritable oasis set in the blazing heat of Death Valley. Dating from 1933, guests can enjoy a diverse range of activities at this historic resort and look forward stylish accommodation options for a great night’s sleep. Why not try the Golf Course which is one of the world’s toughest golf courses and is also the lowest course in the world at more than 200 feet below sea level! Try authentic and high-quality food and drink at four different venues and venture to the two spring-fed swimming pools for a beautifully natural way to cool off.  Outside of the ranch, why not explore the Death valley National Park? Hit rock bottom at Badwater bay – the lowest spot on the Western Hemisphere or visit Scotty’s Castle at the far edge of the resort complex.

Great location for hiking north and south

Denver, Colorado

. We stayed here 4 nights with a hiking tour in the park. There was never more than 30 min to 40 min drive everyday to get to the hikes. The rooms were very comfortable but basic. They did have a tv and hair dryer. There is a buffet for lunch breakfast and dinner. $17 for breakfast so you could bring in your own groceries for lunch and breakfast. In room fridge and coffee. There is also a sit down restaurant walking distance and cafe at the golf club as well. The pool is lovely spring fed warm. Sometimes it was uncrowded and you could do laps. There is basketball shuffleboard and tennis court. ( bring your own balls and racquet) there is a golf course several in our group enjoyed. There is a nIce general store with t shirts camping supplies and a few food items. They had a coffee and ice cream shop near the store. The food was OK at the buffet. They did have a few gluten Free items. The breakfast was best. Oatmeal , eggs and bacon. We had the box lunch one day and it was very good with butter lettuce instead of bread with my sandwich. There is no Lounging area near our rooms. Outside there is lots of chairs but gets really cold at night-bring a puffer coat. They have some nice fires going on the patio outside the sit down restaurant and one fire among the guest rooms. They have jeeps here you can rent for the day for about $300. You can get to the rougher trailheads. Beds were a bit soft but fine. Apparently the rooms were recently renovated. Lots of construction going on. We had men working outside our patio door putting in sod. There were two rocking chairs on our outside patio. Nice in the afternoon before it gets too cold. Best place to stay if you are coming to visit. I felt 4 days was a good amount of time to see a good part of the park. Internet was a hassle we had to call 800 number. Everyone had same problem.

Nice breakfast buffet

Dublin, Ireland

We stayed the night in Stovepipe Wells and decided to go to Furnace Ceeek for breakfast. Pleasantly surprised to come across this breakfast buffet. $15 pp and well worth it. Pleasant, clean, and tasty
