My friend and I stayed in cabin 10. We had a beautiful view of the creek from a large picture window that ran through the kitchen to the bedroom. The kitchen had a table and chairs, microwave, fridge, hot plate, cutlery, plates, glasses etc and a grill on the outdoor patio. The deck had a couple of picnic tables to...

Santa Rita Lodge has quaint character - not a typical motel. One goes there for the quiet and splendid views of nature and birds. Best night's sleep of the trip! We were in room #16 with a wonderful view into the woods. A small kitchen is provided. You have to bring your own food.

I took a trip to Madera Canyon to get a break away from winter in Chicago in late February. It was 60F in CHicago and there was a winter storm warning for driving in the canyon posted 2 days before I arrived. Hilarious. Created some pretty views of Old Baldy! I was a guest for 3 nights, 3 cold nights....

My friend and I stayed in cabin number 1. There is a kitchen, kitchen table and chairs, front and back decks, king bed, windows all around. We could see the deer and later the wild turkeys grazing all around. No internet connection. There is a plentiful supply of DVDs for use (free) up at the little office/store there on property....

We were pleasantly surprised with the cabins at Santa Rita. We had cabin #1 right next to the feeding station. After checking in , the cabin was opened up and the heat put on before we got to it. It was roomy and had everything you needed. The bed was okay, not exactly your plush bedding, but certainly adequate. The...

Very nice little cabins, clean, furnished with everything you need, in the middle of the woods with the river down at the back window. The mini kitchen has everything (except an oven), even a toaster! Mini front porch, very pleasant and quiet.

Stayed one night in a casita. Since there are no restaurants at the lodge the casita is equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals. The birds were very abundant at the bird feeding area which is close to the casitas and cabins. The gift shop has many great souvenirs.

I've been coming here for 30 years when I visit Tucson. Enough said about loving the place. I would be happy if it never changes! I come to hike and bird and there is plenty of both for many days, and it is so peaceful and quiet, even on New Years Eve! Comments here are so other visitors don't get...

My friends and I were really looking forward to finally hiking Mt Wrightson. Except the bear was still roaming the trails which were still closed, so we missed out on that. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay at the lodge. There were three of us and we stayed in cabin 7, which was the only one still available for our weekend...

Cabin was okay and had a comfortable feel. Air was fresh with lots of birds around. Nice place to relax until the next morning. We were told "do we know that dogs were not allowed." I said that when I booked that we had a service dog in training. " No problem." I am disabled and have a small dog...
