Smoke Tree Ranch Hotel Review: You will feel as if you've stepped back in time at the historic Smoke Tree Ranch, a collection of 57 distinctive, cozy guest cottages with beamed cathedral ceilings. With 375 acres of natural desert, a pool, three holes of golf, horseshoes, tennis, lawn bowling and ruins of indeterminate origin, this place is an oasis unto itself. Each cottage is unique and comfortably furnished, with even the smallest units offering dressing areas, wet bars and fridges. Holidays find the property busy with vacationing families, and there is often a golf club atmosphere, with many golf enthusiasts making Smoke Tree Ranch their regular getaway. An American plan rate includes three hearty meals. And although men must wear jackets at dinner, guests serve themselves from a cafeteria line in the kitchen, a throwback to WWII days. The full-service spa offers a wonderful menu of services.
