Travel Flashback: Arizona’s Hidden Meadow Ranch
Tucked away in a remote setting in Arizona’s White Mountains, amidst towering whispering pines and rambling herds of elk, lies a unique blend of luxury and ruggedness: Hidden Meadow Ranch.
When we made our reservations to stay at Hidden Meadow Ranch, we had no idea that we would be visiting a ranch that even the most discriminate of luxury baby boomer travelers would enjoy.
The original property that became Hidden Meadow Ranch was homesteaded by frontiersman John Chellis Hall and his family in 1916.
Notice: Hidden Meadow Ranch has ceased operating as a destination resort and is now in the business of selling luxury homesites.
Since that time, the property has served as everything from a homestead ranch to a church youth camp until the property was purchased by successful Scottsdale developers Tim and Casey Bolinger, and Gary and Jeanne Herberger
The two couples turned their attention to this unique property making the transformation from church youth camp to luxurious mountain destination an outgrowth of the owners’ friendship, love of Arizona, and interests in horseback riding, snow skiing, and fly fishing. The couples set out to create a luxury lodging experience that complements the naturally beautiful, secluded setting, while providing a high level of service and comfort. By providing the highest quality staff, facilities, and services, the couples have done just that.
We think they scored a home run, and this is backed up by the fact that they have won Most Excellent Ranch in USA & Canada – Condé Nast Johansen’s Luxury Travel Guide for the last two years running.
If you are an Arizona resident looking for a wonderful place to get out of the summer heat, play in winter’s snow, or a baby boomer luxury traveler looking for a very unique mountain ranch experience, we highly recommend great consideration be given to Hidden Meadow Ranch.
It has worked its way into our hearts, and we look forward to a return visit for a much longer stay.
