Your Horse Wants to Stay HERE!

Ultimate Arizona mountain horse lovers experience awaits you in the quiet, cool pines of Payson, Arizona. DIAMOND SPIRIT RANCH GUESTHOUSE is a 90 minute drive from the East Valley which includes Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Gilbert, phoenix and more. Bring your horses! There are 2 stalls with mats and fans, a lighted riding arena, a wash rack, paddocks and everything else you need for you and your horses to experience a comfortable escape to the mountains.

**TONTO NATIONAL FOREST WILL CLOSE ON JUNE 25, 2021 due to extreme drought and wildfires. We do not know when it will reopen.

Adjacent to the property is the Tonto National Forest with spectacular trails to ride and remarkable scenery to enjoy while you ride. Access is for horses, hikers and bikers; motorized vehicles are not permitted. Our property is a one minute walk to a 30 acre professional riding facility with events, arenas, instruction and clinics.

The appeal of our guesthouse is not limited to equestrians. Setting is lovely for nature lovers who enjoy hiking, biking and wildlife viewing or just a retreat to the mountains to restore their inner peace. It is not an appropriate rental for anyone interested in hunting.

Payson is a 15 minute drive from our home and offers lakes for fishing, wildlife viewing to include water fowl and elk, golf, shopping and quaint dining experiences. Mogollon Rim is approximately 30 miles from Payson and offers breathtaking scenery as well as horseback and hiking/biking trails, lakes for boating and fishing, and back country skiing during the winter months. Binoculars and cameras are a must!

Horse care is self care or for a modest fee we will clean stalls and feed what horse's owner provides. Water tanks, ground hay bins and hanging grain feeders are supplied and sanitized between each guest horse. Stalls are packed decomposed granite; pine shavings are available for purchase.

-Horse stall is $30/night with self care.
-Horse turnout is $20/night with self care.
-RV parking $30/night includes water, septic, electric and Internet.

To reach our guesthouse you will need to cross a creek which is usually shallow but during or after rain storms requires extreme caution and especially for those traveling in a car.

For your convenience, home's owner resides in main house. She has over 40 years experience with horse care and will gladly answer your horse-related questions. BEFORE booking your unique mountain experience, we highly recommend you contact the owner directly to review all amenities and details.

We do not have horses for hire. If you are interested in riding lessons please contact Judy at 303-358-6118. She teaches at the ranch across the road, Patterson Training.

The space
The ground level guesthouse is a separate domicile across from the main house with 2 brand new queen beds, a Smart TV for streaming, a full bath and completely stocked kitchen with microwave, drip and Keurig coffee makers, below counter fridge/freezer and sink. Extended range high speed Internet is provided. Soap and a hair dryer are also provided.

Pricing is based on double occupancy. Each additional person is $45/person per night.

Our comfortable and cozy guesthouse adjoins the barn which has two 12 X 15 foot matted stalls with fans and gated access to a turn out area. Other amenities include a grooming area, wash rail with mat, a private, well appointed, climate-controlled tack room and two large turn out areas. All areas are well lit to maximize safety and facilitate horse care.

Outside of the guesthouse is a covered, built-in kitchen with gas grills, fridge, sink with running cold water and newly added TV. The outdoor kitchen is surrounded by a large gathering area with a picnic table, recliners, swing and other comfortable seating choices. A wood burning fire pit will warm you when the evenings are cool (and no fire restrictions are in place). Relax and sooth sore muscles in our toasty hot tub. Our neighbors occasionally use the gathering area for small group get-togethers and informative meetings that are quiet and friendly. Guests are welcome to join the fun!

There is ample parking for vehicles and horse trailers. There is also parking for an RV with hook-ups for water and septic pump out plus 2 electric connections. RV parking at $30/night includes water, septic, electricity and Internet.

This is a working ranch in a rural location. Common sounds you may hear are tractors or other farm equipment, neighborhood dogs, chickens, horses, elk bugling, coyotes howling and a host of other noises associated with nature and life on a mountain ranch.

Early check-in and late check-out may be options. Highchairs and Pack N Plays are available to rent.
