Fodor's Expert Review X Diamond Ranch

S. Fork Rd., Springerville, Arizona, 85927, USA

This magnificent ranch has log cabins complete with porches, fireplaces, and full kitchens, and a slew of activities—fly-fishing, horseback riding, and tours of Little Bear archaeological site among them. Most sleep two to six, but the Butler House and the Beaver Lodge sleep eight. Most cabins include hot tubs or Jacuzzis, and all have high-definition TVs. In June you can even take part in the excavation on the ranch land. Nonguests are welcome to participate in activities, as well as visit the on-site Little House Museum.
