The Smoke Tree Ranch on the southern edge of Palm Springs dates back to the 1930s when it was a real, working ranch. By the 1940s and '50s, Walt Disney, among others started building vacation homes. But unlike the mid-century movie star homes in Palm Springs, the Smoke Tree Ranch colony remained true to its western heritage. All of the...

My husband and his family spent many memorable visits to the Smoke Tree Ranch and has mentioned it to me for years. So a couple weeks ago we went and I was as thrilled as he was. The staff is wonderful, food terrific -- and I'm a very picky eater -- and you just can't believe the desert views all...

Did the hour long ride. Got a nice desert expedition with interesting factoids along the route. We were all novice riders and they explained well how to steer the horses. Very friendly and they offered to take a picture of us with our camera. It does get really hot outside so if you can go to a morning session, that'd...

The room was comfortable and clean.The food was always very good, breakfast,lunch and dinner.If horse riding is your passion there are better places to go as the stables are a separate entity .The countryside is nice particularly if like me you like a desert environment .

I love it! No glitz!! Old lovely desert! Most wonderful food ever!! Rustic cottages with wood burning fireplaces. American plan includes all of your food and it's the best food you could ever imagine. I've been going my whole life and it's exactly the same as it's always been! Warm and convivial!

My son Mac and I went out to Smoke Tree Stables for a ride in the morning, we had a fantastic time. We were welcomed by friendly staff and felt like we were in a very rural ranch setting. The horses in the corral were healthy, and well cared for, and in talking to ranch staff we knew we were...

A fabulous trail ride through the desert! Wonderful horses, great guide and amazing views! We trailered into Indian Canyons and rode for about an hour and a half. Our guide Deb was entertaining and informative. Very patient with beginners!

“All cottages are in walking distance to the Ranch House and they offer golf cart rides if needed.”

“This is not open to the general public, so don't be offended if you are not given access. There are several styles of cottages from which to choose, which can accommodate varying numbers of guests. However, ask how the bathrooms are arranged!”
JR125, 10 Dec 2014 | Read review
“There are not a lot of cabins/rooms, as it's a small facility. However, for something special, ask for one of the Disney rooms. They have great photographs on the walls!”

“Closer to the "ranch House" is better for access. The updated rooms cost more but may be worth the upgrade?”
