The Ranch at Death Valley

Death Valley, Kings Canyon and Death Valley

The hotel

Adjacent to the National Park Visitors' Centre, the ranch is actually located inside Death Valley National Park. In the 1800s it was a working ranch. Today it maintains its Western-style theme and even has a Borax Mining Museum on site with antique stage coaches! The spring-fed swimming pool is perfect for cooling down, or head to the Corkscrew Saloon for a refreshing drink. As well as tennis courts, Furnace Creek boasts the lowest golf course on Earth and in the Wrangler Buffet, a substantial Western meal will satisfy even the largest of appetites.

I should start with what worked: the bed was comfortable and the area was quiet enough for me to sleep a full night.

The other restaurant was more formal and that is where we ate. Gary, our waiter was excellent- he helped us decide what to order and he was right! The food was delicious! Michael, was very nice too and talked to us about places to stay there and nearby. Were would love to stay there again.We had a wonderful time! Read less

After driving many miles through desert wasteland we came upon this ranch in the middle of nowhere, You have to wonder how and why this place came to be. Everything is extremely well kept and maintained, I would recommend staying here if you have time. There is so much to see in this National Park, take your time and enjoy.

The accommodations at the Ranch At Death Valley are simple but comfortable in the stark environs of Death Valley. It is nice to be able to retire to the controlled temperature of your room and comfort of your bed after a hot day of sight seeing. The facility has a couple of places to eat and a small convenience store. The Saloon is a particularly interesting spot to dine at. Do prepare yourself for a potentially long wait at the front desk during peak check-in/check-out times Read less
