Red Cliffs Adventure Lodge Review

Discovered in the late 1940s by director John Ford, this former ranch was the setting for several old Westerns in the 1950s. Here the Colorado River rolls by right outside your door, and canyon walls reach for the sky in all their red glory; you can gaze at it all from your private riverfront patio. Rooms are Western in flavor, with log furniture, lots of wood, and Saltillo tile. Added attractions include an on-site winery, a movie memorabilia museum, as well as guided rafting, hiking, biking, and horseback-riding adventures into the desert. Its Cowboy Grill ($$–$$$) serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The setting is fabulous, but note that you're 14 mi from town.
