The Barn

at Tanque Verde Ranch is Now Open!

Here at Cote Family Destinations, we have made the tough decision that we are temporarily ceasing most of our operations at both of our resort properties—Grand View Lodge and Tanque Verde Ranch—beginning March, 24 2020.

We feel that a brief hiatus is in the best interest of our community and associates in order to keep everyone healthy and safe in these uncertain times and follow the guidance and requests we’ve received from our government officials.

Rest assured this is temporary. We hope to welcome guests back to both resorts soon—just in time to kick-off golf season up at Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, MN and the Arizona desert in full bloom at Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson.

We will continue to provide updates regarding the resumption of full service when we can. We look forward to welcoming you back to Grand View Lodge and Tanque Verde Ranch soon.
