Young, Arizona rests within the fifth largest forest in the United States, along the Mogollon (moh- guh-yohn) Rim. The landscape is comprised of rolling Ponderosa pine hills, Sonoran scrub valleys and rocky wash basins. A variety of wildlife including 11 different game species such as elk, mule deer, Coues white tail deer, black bear, mountain lion, javalina, turkey, and quail call Pleasant Valley their home. We are favored with roughly temperate weather for a greater part of the year.
For a brief but spectacular three weeks in September, the foliage undergoes a magical change around the Valley. Brilliant reds, oranges and yellows cover the deciduous trees.
December through late February the lodge receives a dusting of snow and the occasional winter wonderland storm as seen in the picture gallery. Temperatures reach below freezing at night, so be sure to pack plenty of warm winter clothing and cozy up by the fire.
Spring and fall temperatures are very temperate with an average between the low 70s to mid 90s. It’s the perfect escape from the still blazing heat in Phoenix. July and August are the hottest months of the year, while August and September receive the most rain fall of the year.
However, no matter what time of the year you visit Cherry Creek Lodge we guarantee you will enjoy your stay! Find your perfect reservation today.
