We met up at
the Triangle T Ranch with some good friends for 2 nights. We had a Great
time, horse back riding during the day, sitting by the fire at night. The
rooms were very clean. experience taking a shower in the round tub with the
circular shower curtain, walk across the rustic hardwood floors, this was
fun - a feel of the old west!! We had stayed during the week when the saloon
was closed, but Don opened up the saloon to serve us dinner and let us
experience the saloon of the swinging doors ( which we each made our special
entrance and had Don the owner laughing at us). The saloon is called the
rock / the saloon was made around this rock. There is a small ledge in the
rock. If you can put a quarter in that ledge you receive a Free drink. Yes I
was the only one out of 4 of us to do this !!!' Come and stay at the
Triangle T Ranch - if you are not getting what you want to experience - ASK
they are willing to accommodate !
We look forward to our stay next year. - Jodee - Colorado
We had two of the best nights and days at the Triangle T Ranch that one could ever hope for. The weather was fantastic and the staff from the owners Don and Linda to the resident cowboy Tommy, chef Daniel were unbelievable! I am already dreaming of our next visit to the Triangle T and the wonderful people who make it a special place. Dwight S. - Kirkland Wash.
Our room was
fun with its Western designs. The horseback riding was exciting -- highly
recommend two one hour trips...that was the perfect amount of time for a
beginner. The landscape is beautiful, the staff is friendly, I'm happy to
recommend this ranch. Bon Fire at night outside our room was relaxing and
warm. This is a great base to go see the sites around South East AZ too. The
history of the ranch is interesting too. We were made to feel like the most
important guests they ever had. I look forward to returning.

I just wanted to say thank you to you and all the staff at theTriangle T for taking such good care of our wedding guests this past weekend. Everyone had a fantastic time, and many folks told me how much they loved the Triangle T. You will likely get some repeat customers out of it! So, muchas gracias for a job well done! Ruth & Randy
We did a quick get
away to the Triangle T Guest ranch with another couple. What a delight!
Rooms are no frills but comfortable and had everything we needed. We were glad there were no TVs! We had a small kitchen area which came in handy.For dinner: beer and burgers at the Saloon and the music of a country western singer with an extensive repertoire of songs.
The next day we enjoyed a hearty complementary breakfast and my husband was thrilled that he was sitting at the same table John Wayne had eaten at many years before! The movie set from the original 310 to Yuma added a bit of excitement to our stay. We enjoyed a hike after breakfast in Texas Canyon where we came across a pack of javelina who meandered on their way.
Before leaving we took a path that led to the Amerind Museum - an unexpected treat to have a world class museum within walking distance of the ranch.
If you're looking for the comforts of a Hyatt this isn't for you. But if you enjoy history, the outdoors, a campfire at night, and a glimpse of a simpler time then you'll have a wonderful time. Phoenix, AZ
We spent a weekend here and thought the room was fantastic. The food at the Saloon was excellent and the poblano pepper soup was unreal. Went out horseback riding twice and the scenery was also pretty spectacular. We'll be back again! Don, Nelson, BC Canada
All in all, I would say if you want fine lodging you should go to a Raddison. If you want a relaxing ranch setting with folks that knock themselves out to make your stay pleasant, this is a great place to stay. If anything is not just right and you speak up about it, they make it right immediately. My husband went to the dining room early during the week to see if we could have a drink before dinner. The owners daughter showed up at our room soon after with a pitcher of beer and two cold glasses. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. This was our first stay at the Triangle T but there will be more in the future for sure. Deborah, Skowhegan, Maine
Ranch Offers Unique Experience” - My
cousin (from Alabama) and I (from Tucson) are so glad we found this very
special place. The room was fine and comfortable, and we both appreciated
that it had no tv and no phone. The surprise was the food--the chef looks
like a ranch hand, and we thought we'd get a ho-hum dinner. Wrong! He is a
classically trained chef, as we found out as soon as he brought the very
tender flank steak with chipotle raspberry glaze. Mixed veggies were
perfectly cooked, in a subtle sauce, and the best I've ever had--and so went
the entire meal. It was fun to learn of his fascinating background--and to
anticipate next morning's breakfast, which did not disappoint.
Even more than room and food, we loved walking around the ranch and along the trails among the great boulders. We'd watched the 1956 movie, Broken Arrow, about the Apache chief Cochise before we came, and that made the ranch history and the Dragoon area mean even more. Cochise wintered on the very place where the ranch was built 92 years ago; Jimmy Stewart and a host of movie stars stayed at the ranch in earlier years. Sharon at the front desk was most helpful in giving us ideas of where to go and how to get there. One ranch trail leads to the back of the Amerind Museum, a must-see for anyone interested in American Indians and especially the Apaches.
I'll be back at another time when a group of us will trailer horses in for a weekend of riding across this wonderful land. We both left feeling relaxed and peaceful and so very glad for the experience--and glad that the Triangle T Ranch was where we stayed. Kitty from Tucson.
“What a find! Old Arizona!” - What a happy accident it was running into the Triangle T. It's a lovely, historic place. Fantastic scenery. Fun, laid-back Cowboy atmosphere. Authentic old Arizona. Recently renovated, the rooms were very nice. Rustic yet comfortable. Service was great. We'll be back again and again! David P - Phoenix
"Beautiful" - My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014 and had a great time. Relaxing, beautiful scenery we took a horse ride with one of the owners (our first time on horses!) and Donny was great. The food in the saloon is excellent, and the live music on a Saturday night is so much fun! We were even given wood to make a campfire, which we promptly did. The rooms are very nice also, spacious but quaint, and clean. - Leah, London England
“Step out of the fast pace and go back in time” - This quaint little spot is just off I-10 between Tucson and Wilcox Arizona. Linda and Don, the proprietors, really know how to make you feel welcome. The guest rooms are accommodating and the food and service was excellent. A great place to relax and unwind. Check out the Saloon. Great Bloody Marys. Greg W.
“Scenic Ranch Setting with Great Service.” - We recently spent 3 days at the Triangle T Ranch and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. We stayed in Casita 1 (The Dorothy Mackaill), it was decorated in a western style, very clean and comfortable. Their claw legged deep bathtubs are great for bubble baths but are set up for showers as well. Their saloon is open on the weekends and provides you with a bit of adventure and western culture. Because they have a highly trained chef on staff, expertly prepared meals are served in their dining room every night with the freshest of ingredients. My husband and I took a 2 hour horse ride on very tame horses with what seemed an authentic cowboy that was glad to share the history of the ranch as we rode. Many famous people stayed at this ranch as well as the shooting of the movie, "3:10 to Yuma". Deborah D.P.
“Fantastic Stay at Triangle T & Mystical
Dragoon Mtns.” - Another couple and my husband and I decided to take a trip
to the Dragoon Mountains over the long weekend. We had read about the
Triangle T Ranch in Arizona Highways and decided to give it a try. We were
all pleasantly surprised. We were warmly greeted and check-in and provided
with information on the ranch and the surrounding area. We stayed in casita
#7 and found it thoroughly charming. We were also pleased to have a full
kitchen! While the ranch is historic and in the middle of the desert, the
casita had all the updated amenities we needed for a relaxing get-away from
the noise and distractions of the city. It is important to understand that
this is not a fancy "resort" in the usual sense (spas, tv, dust-free). It is
a truly an old Western historic, rustic working ranch. As such, you are
forced to be drawn into the beautiful scenery of Texas Canyon, the
surrounding Dragoon Mountains and a quiet relaxed atmosphere.
Saturday night we ate at the Saloon. The food was good and reasonably priced, but the entertainment was phenomenal. The singer that night played a wide variety of songs and had a beautiful singing voice. The drinks were reasonably priced too.
The breakfast the next morning was tasty and hearty. It was a great way to start our day of visiting the Amerind Museum (which is located a short walk from the ranch and worth visiting) and then hiking the Dragoons. After breakfast, the owners sat with us and gave us a complete, interesting history of the ranch and all of the people who have visited in the past. It made our experience complete.
The Dragoon Mountains are not to be missed. The mountains offer huge rock formations, cliffs,a variety of vegetation, amazing vistas, vast prairies and considered the home base for the Chiricahua Apache Chief, Cochise . We hiked the Cochise Trail and saw wonderful views and only passed a handful of people the entire time.
We will definitely be back for another visit to the area and a stay at the Triangle T Ranch. Violet, Phoenix Arizona
