Vacation at a Ranch Formerly Owned by Val Kilmer’s Family

The ranch offers an authentic experience for those seeking a true cowboy vacation with its strong Western flavour. Val Kilmer’s family formerly owned this now-famous ranch from 1967 to 1971 before being sold to new owners.

When Val Kilmer’s family-owned Kay El Bar Ranch, he lived in Casa Monterey which is currently the office building. He was 14 years old when his family purchased the guest ranch.

Where Did Val Kilmer Live at Kay El Bar Guest Ranch?

The Kay El Bar Guest Ranch is one of the oldest in the state of Arizona, built in the early 1900s and listed on both the Arizona and National Registers of Historic Places.

What Does Kay El Bar Guest Ranch Offer?

It opened full-time as a guest ranch in 1926. Arizona offers fabulous winter weather, and the ranch’s intimate size (about 25 guests max) makes for a welcoming and relaxing vacation experience.

Specifically in Arizona, the ranch’s proximity to the Hassayampa River in Wickenburg makes for some spectacular riding. The Hassayampa is intermittent, meaning it doesn’t always flow at the surface but rather underground in stretches.

“We hear so often that guests love how friendly our staff members are and how warm, welcoming and beautiful the ranch is” states Bridget Grobosky, Marketing Manager for True Ranch Collection.
