Come See What a Multi-Million Dollar Renovation Can Do

Return to The Ranch - The Heart of Our True American Oasis

The Ranch at Death Valley, the energetic center of activity in Death Valley with its towering palm trees and true oasis atmosphere that you remember so well, has witnessed a $100 million renaissance and evolution of the public space that dates to the 1950s. The vision of a more user-friendly “town square” in Spanish Colonial Revival style to be more sensitive to the environment, reduce traffic flow and provide better access to restaurants and the general store, has been completed. In addition to all that is new, The Ranch continues to offer the following amenities and activities to look forward to:

  • Located adjacent to the National Park Visitor Center
  • A spring-fed pool that is consistently 87 degrees
  • Communal fire pits
  • Tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts
  • Horseshoe pits
  • Playground for the kids

We look forward to hosting you again soon and cannot wait for you to witness the changes to this incredible property and experience the national park we call home.

The New Town Square

Built in Spanish Colonial Revival style and designed to be the heartbeat of The Ranch at Death Valley, the brand new Town Square fulfills all of your dining and shopping needs. Featuring a new registration building, grassy quadrangle with a fountain in the middle surrounded with palm trees, the redesigned General Store, and reimagined dining experiences at the 1849 Buffet and The Last Kind Words Saloon – straight out of a western movie – the Town Square is the lifeblood of The Ranch at Death Valley.

For information, call (877) 444-6777.

The Last Kind Words Saloon

One of the crown jewels of the 2018 revitalization efforts, The Last Kind Words Saloon brings the West of old to Death Valley. Featuring relics of the past such as movie posters, “Wanted!” fliers touting the misdeeds of outlaws, antique firearms, and taxidermied game animals, The Last Kind Words Saloon is a testimony to the days of a bygone era.

Not to be upstaged by the decor, the menu ensures that guests leave touting the delicious steaks as much as the surroundings their meals were enjoyed in. A menu rich in options, The Last Kind Words Saloon has everything from a 36 oz. tomahawk ribeye, to wild Alaskan salmon, to featured game of the day, all of which can be enjoyed alongside local draught beers or our selection of wines and whiskeys.

The Inn at Death Valley – The Jewel of Death Valley

When something is good, really good, it can be hard to imagine better. After an extensive, multi-million dollar renaissance, The Inn at Death Valley is now better than ever. Offering guests unprecedented service and luxury at our natural oasis in the middle of Death Valley National Park has always been our calling card, but our extensive changes have elevated the experience to new heights. Once the exclusive desert escape for such Hollywood elites as Marlon Brando, Clark Gable, and Carole Lombard, The Inn is bringing the elegance of Old Hollywood back after its $100 million renaissance.
