IMG_5114 (2)The All Seasons Lodge -The main location for everyone to meet.  The lodge is huge!  Although all of the rooms except for one are upstairs, the bottom level is accessible and has a large dining area, living room, game room with TV, games and movies, kitchen and two large accessible bathrooms.  There is also a wrap around patio that is accessible that has a fire pit, fireplace, BBQ, chairs and table.  There is a lawn area for games.  "Click here" to view Lodge.


The All Seasons Lodge is rented by We’re MOVING FORWARD! and has only 5 rooms available.  They all have their own separate costs associated with them. 


As of 1/4/18 all rooms at the All Seasons Lodge have already been rented.  See below for other rentals in the area.  We recommend that you plan as far in advance as possible and reserve your rental.


Those not staying at the Lodge will need to rent their own cabin, timeshare or condo within the Bison Ranch Community.  Bison Ranch is a western themed area with an old fashioned town and cabins throughout the property.  Depending on where you rent, basically everything is within walking or rolling distance.  The roads are flat paved surfaces.  No hills.


Meals – your own cost


Transportation – your responsibility and your cost


It is up to you if you want to come up for the entire time, or if you can only stay Friday or Saturday night.  You can also determine how much you want to do.  We do make available the following, and will need to know if you plan on attending any of these:


IMG_5096Check-In at the Lodge – 2:00 pm.  If you are staying at the Lodge - we will have someone there to get the key and open everything up at 2:00.  Feel free to arrive as you are able.  You do not have to be there right at 2:00.

IMG_2464aSaturday Willow Springs Lake – We typically meet at the Lodge and then head to the lake right at 7:30 am for kayaking and fishing.  Even if you don’t want to kayak or fish, the lake is beautiful to sit and enjoy.  Those attending need to pack their own lunch, snacks and drinks.  If 7:30 is too early for you – join us as you are able, but we usually only stay until about 1:00 or 2:00.




Confirmed for Saturday! 

IMG_5314 (2)The Buhr Family will have their pontoon boat on the lake again this year to individuals that would like to fish or go for a boat ride.  This was a fun addition to our event last year and we are very happy that the Buhr's will be joining us again and providing this wonderful resource.

VRBO has rentals - make sure to look at the ones in Bison Ranch/Heber-Overgaard.  There are individually owned cabins and condos that people rent out.  Make sure to ask about accessibility if needed.


Wyndham Extra Holidays:   This is a timeshare that now has some rooms they rent to the public.  They said there are (2) special needs rooms and (10) lower level rooms that are not designated special needs but will still fit a wheelchair.

After you reserve - THEN YOU MUST CALL:  1-928-535-3010 which is the direct number for the resort condos there at Bison Ranch.  Tell them you just booked through “Extra Holidays” and they will “try” to reserve a special needs room OR a lower level room for you so it will be available for you when you get there.
