How to Get There
Beautiful ranch that offers seclusion and stunning views of the Colorado River and red rock formations. The River Grill has wonderful top of the line food and wine. You will not be disappointed! Sorrel offers horseback riding, yoga, morning hikes, mountain biking, etc.
In years past we have stayed in Castle Valley on our visits to the area parks, so we passed this property twice a day. It is in a gorgeous setting. Our views were amazing and we enjoyed our family suite very much, spacious and comfortable for relaxing.
The dining experience was unsatisfactory. The first night of our visit we ate in the restaurant on site and I almost choked at the prices, but hoped the meal would be special. It was fine, but not worth the cost. We were in Moab for every other meal. I felt a bit bad for them, noticing how few guests used the restaurant, but the prices were wildly out of sync with the food and the 18% gratuity on overpriced food sealed our decision to eat elsewhere.
I have wanted to stay at this resort since I first saw it so have thought a lot about our experience during our five night stay. I think it is an expensive operation and there appear to be far too few rooms for them to stay open if they charged less. Nevertheless, we stay in lovely hotels all over the world and this was quite a bit pricier than Le Trois Roi on the Rhine in Basel, Switzerland, or the Hotel Sacher in Vienna. With that perspective, I’m not sure how they stay in operation here. However, looking at the other options for lodging in the area, the choices are meager. We wanted a nice experience and we got it, but boy did we ever pay for it. My attitude and review would be far more positive if we had paid $300 per night. Sadly, as much as I loved it, the out of proportion expense spoiled our experience. We will be back to our nice B&B in Castle Valley for our next visit, but at least we gave it a try.
From the scenery to the ranch itself there is nothing to fault. the scenery is breathtaking and the service and standard of food is first rate. A hidden gem in utah for the discerning traveller. The fire pit at night was a real winner with our family
After a 6 hour road trip and anticipating our first visit to Moab area, we pulled into the Sorrel River Ranch and could not wait for daylight! We were amazed at the beautiful views of the red rock palisades, the Colorado River at our front door, the full moon dropping as the sun rose. The room was LARGE, and rustic and gorgeous, the bed linens and pillows and beach d itself SO comfortable! Exploring the ranch was fun...teepees and petting zoo and beautiful horses and gardens, pool and hot tub and fire pit and s’mores! Delicious coffee in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. We took a sunset trail ride with Mikela, our guide who lead us on a spectacular ride through the desert. And to top it off, a first class meal at the restaurant that evening. The Ranch is certainly a destination vacation and getaway, and close to the Arches National Park and Moab. We loved it here! Arlene, Thr Villages, FL
Arriving at the ranch, the scenery that greeted us was breathtaking. Our rooms in
individual cabins were very comfortable with a feel of western ranch living. From them we had views of the Colorado River with a backdrop of red canyon walls. It was peaceful and invigorating. Dinners of Elk, duck breast and salmon were flawless with farm to table goodness. The second day of our stay we went horseback riding with a wonderful guide. She was knowledgeable of horses and of the desert where we rode through areas with national park-like beauty. Great property, staff and food. A special place. Highly recommend a stay.
