FULL DESCRIPTION OF LISTING
Situated in one of the most beautiful areas of northwestern Arizona, we offer 2 horseback rides for each full day you are at the ranch(no riding on Sundays). Our riding program is exceptional, as we cater all of rides to our guests’ abilities. And yes, you can ride the afternoon of your arrival and the morning of your departure! Our wranglers are friendly, knowledgeable and are careful to match horses to riders. Our well-trained horses are trail safe and excellent for all riders. We even have some gaited ones for a really smooth ride! We offer a variety of rides, including slow walking, intermediate trotting and fast, loping rides. We also offer challenging mountain rides(seasonal). Take our popular “Saguaro Cactus” ride where the views are spectacular at the top. Be sure to bring your camera! Or choose our ½ day rides into the Mohave Mountains (October 15-May 1 only) where you will enjoy breathtaking views, authentic Indian petroglyphs and a 60 ft saguaro (Must stay for 4 nights or more to go on these types of rides). Our outdoor swimming pool (heated seasonally) is always a favorite, especially during the hotter summer months. Our hot tub is enjoyed all year long by everyone, especially those wanting to “ease their saddle sores”. Located just 45 minutes from the ranch is Lake Havasu City, where guests can enjoy the Historic London Bridge as well as numerous water sport activities, including jet skis, powerboats, pontoon boats, canoes and kayaks. The famous Grand Canyon is a favorite place for our guests to visit. The west rim (which boasts the widest point of the canyon) is only 2 ½ hours away and the more popular south rim is 3 ½ hours from the ranch. At the west rim, whitewater rafting and spectacular scenic floats can be arranged on the Colorado River as well as helicopter rides into the canyon. The Hualapai Mountains are only an hour’s drive where you can enjoy beautiful pine trees and elk roaming the mountains. (A big change from the desert scenery at the ranch!) There is something for everyone here, whether it is on or off the ranch. You can relax, read a book, or enjoy the many activities offered at Stagecoach Trails. Do a lot, do nothing. We leave that up to you, because after all this is your vacation. In the hotter summer months, our riding times are altered to avoid the heat of the day. We do not offer 1/2 day or all day rides during the summer.
Situated between 3 mountain ranges and only 140 miles from Las Vegas, NV - 220 miles from The Grand Canyon and Phoenix, AZ - 60 miles from Laughlin, NV and Oatman Ghost Town - 45 miles from Lake Havasu City and Kingman, AZ.
Stagecoach Trails was built in 2000 with spacious, tastefully decorated accommodations. We have carefully designed the ranch so that the “old west blends with the new” for a wonderfully unique western experience. Since the ranch is barrier free, all of the public rooms, guest rooms and bathrooms are accessible. (If you don’t need the accessible features, you just get nice big guest rooms and bathrooms!). The western style Frontier Lodge is our gathering place and consists of a huge stone fireplace, comfortable couches, saloon bar (BYOB), Bison room with satellite TV where you can watch movies or your favorite shows, billiards table and a game table. We have a spacious courtyard area that is perfect for sunset viewing, star gazing at night, enjoying our cowboy singers or just relaxing by the fire.
Our family homes, which have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room with a fireplace, can accommodate groups or families of four to eight. Our guest rooms have either one queen bed, one queen bed with a full-size sleeper futon or two double beds. (We also provide rollaway beds when needed.) All rooms have private baths with large verandas that are perfect for enjoying the sunsets, mountains and stars or visiting with new friends. The rooms are large, tastefully decorated either western or southwestern and comfortable. Each morning you will awake to the smell of wonderful home-cooked food and a dinner bell to tell you it’s time to eat.
Many friendships have begun around the tables in the Hualapai Dining Room at Stagecoach Trails. The relaxed, friendly atmosphere and incredible mountain views create a feeling of family, laughter and good conversation. It feels like you are at home, without any of the work! Every meal is anticipated by our guests and served with a smile. Three delicious meals are prepared every day at Stagecoach Trails along with complimentary coffee, tea and other refreshing beverages. Everything is served buffet style so you can eat as little or as much as you want! All of our food is homemade and our desserts are already becoming legendary, so save room for them! You will never be hungry at Stagecoach Trails! Although we have a saloon bar in the Frontier Lodge, we do not have a liquor license. Guests are welcome to BYOB and we will be happy to store it for you in our community refrigerator in the lodge. Our bar is a popular gathering place for guests to get to know each other while enjoying an evening beer, glass of wine or a cocktail. (We do have a variety of sodas and bottled water for purchase in the lodge at all times.)
Every guest's itinerary varies because of the many choices of activities on and off the ranch. Most choose to ride and relax. Others like to participate in the many activities offered or just enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub. Many look forward to evenings in the lodge where they can get to know other guests or participate in activities that are offered such as game night, line dancing, campfires and more. We leave that up to our guests to choose how much or how little they want to be involved. After all it is their vacation!
