What other guests are saying:

​​​The Lodge and the hosts are nothing but absolutely amazing! The house is beautiful and welcoming. It has a sophisticated elegance about it while still being very family friendly. The owner, Mark, was super friendly and accommodating. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the house and property made it the best trip ever. Calley C.  (July 2016)

Thunderhorse Ranch is a unique get away experience that can accommodate small to large groups.  The accommodations offer a wide range of options to  corporate, non-profit or family gatherings.  If your group is seeking the wonderful comfort of a five star type resort or a more simple and rustic group camping experience, Thunderhorse Ranch is the place.

Mark H. (June  2016)

Thunderhorse Ranch is located in the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona, with a 4 season climate, snow in the winter and pleasant temps in the summer. The lodge and the cabins are a perfect getaway from the summer heat of southern Arizona locations for family fun seekers as well as a great fall/winter destination for skiers and hunters. The Ranch is an ideal setting for families, retreats, corporate getaways or other groups.  Activities at the Ranch and surroundings are endless.  You can ride horses on the ranch, fish or kayak at the nearby lake, mountain bike or go on a nature hike.  Or you can just relax on the veranda and listen to the cool wind blowing through the pines and watch elk and deer graze.   For equestrians, you can trailer your horses up to the ranch (with your own private corral) and both you and your horses can have a wonderful vacation.  Ride on the ranch or in the nearby national forest.  When it’s time to take a break indoors, break out a board game, play indoor shuffleboard or basketball or read a book from our Great Books Classics library.
Thunderhorse Ranch is located in Lakeside, near Show Low and Pinetop.  Within a short drive there are nice restaurants, golfing, fishing, bowling, a family fun center, community aquatic center, indoor gun range and movie theaters.  There is a quaint farmers market just down the road open on Saturdays all summer long.  Sunrise Ski Resort (great skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer!) is less than an hour's drive away.

Thunderhorse Ranch is the perfect destination to escape the Arizona summer heat & an ideal place for your summer, fall or winter ski excursion or hunting trip.
