 The Evening “Ranch Rendezvous”

Book Online


The evening “Ranch Rendezvous” starts with a 1 hour trail ride for ages 7 and up, and then a wagon ride pulled by our Percheron draft horse team, Ben and Junior, to “The Sedona Lookout”, our all-weather cookout site with spectacular 360 degree views of Sedona, the Verde Valley and the Mogollon Rim. You can see the lights of Jerome “floating in the sky” and enjoy our fabulous and famous dark starry skies. 
For those people in your party who aren’t going to go on the horseback ride (kids under 7, grandparents, and others) we offer a Dinner Only Option. See the details below. 
At the cookout, you’ll sing along with Alvie Self, a member of  both the Western Swing and the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, and his acoustic guitar and fiddle. He’ll sing you some cowboy songs and play your requests.  Alvie has been playing and singing at our evening cookouts for 10 years, and people love him (so do we!).
You’ll spend a total of about 3  hours as our guest for the ride and Cookout, enjoying delicious food in a casual atmosphere with room for your kids to roam. We normally offer our evening cookouts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but if you have a group of 6 or more, we can accommodate you on other days.  In March and April, we offer the evening ride and cookout Mondays through Saturdays to accommodate Spring Break visitors.

 Cowboy Lunch

Cowboy Lunch is a 2 1/2 hour adventure that includes a  1 1/2  hour trail ride, and lunch at our “Sedona Lookout” cookout site with views of the whole Verde Valley.  In the winter, we have heaters to keep you toasty while you enjoy a delicious Arizona Dutch Oven lunch of Cowboy Stew, cornbread, homemade chocolate chip cookies, and lemonade.

During Spring and Summer, the menu changes a little because of the heat. Cowboy Lunch starts with a 1 1/2 hour trail ride and concludes with lunch at our nicely shaded “Sedona Lookout” cookout site with views of the whole Verde Valley.  The menu also changes to summer cookout fare: grilled hamburgers (beef or veggie) with all the fixings, potato salad with juice bars and watermelon for dessert.
