Lodge at Ventana Canyon
A focus on golf with exceptional mountain and canyon views.
Nestled near the base of the Catalina Mountains, this all-suites resort is surrounded by acclaimed golf links and a residential gated community. The secluded country club atmosphere is Kennebunkport West---low-key and understated---by way of the desert southwest. Its preppy, conservative social milieu attracts a clientele of avid golfers and their wives, along with many retirees. Surrounded by a saguaro studded landscape, two 18-hole, Tom Fazio-designed courses have been planted in an unforgettable canyon and mountain setting near the entrance to Ventana Canyon. Aside from a handful of Native American paintings and subtle regional appointments in the guest rooms, there is little evidence of the southwest infusion so prevalent in this area. Views of the Catalina Mountains from the lodge dining area are breathtaking.
