Guest House

M Diamond Ranch’s “Little Gem Guest House”
A Private Ranch Experience for your Family or Group

This is a truly unique western ranch style lodging experience for families or groups from 2 to 10 people. You’ll be the only guests on the Sedona area’s only working cattle ranch that hosts guests, because we reserve exclusively one party at a time.


It’s rural, but not remote. The M Diamond Ranch is 15 minutes outside the Village of Oak Creek and 30 minutes outside Sedona, completely surrounded by the Coconino National Forest, within 5 miles of two wilderness areas, West Clear Creek and Wet Beaver Creek, and a number of major archaeological sites including the V Bar V Heritage site, Sacred Mountain, and Red Tank Draw.


The accommodations are very comfortable and modern, but not 5-star luxurious. It’s a working ranch, after all! The guest house is actually an extension of the owner’s historic 1930s stone ranch home, fully updated and modern. It is fully air conditioned and stocked with linens, but not with food, and features
