Our Story ~
The Crown King Cabins, Suites, and Bunkhouse, (formerly Bradshaw Mountain Guest Ranch) is the vision of The Woodward and Paccioni Families. My father, the late Pastor Dan Woodward of the Chapel of the Crowned King, began venturing to Crown King in the early 1970’s in our vintage jeep up the “back roads from Lake Pleasant” when the remains of the Orabelle and Tiger Mines were still evident. We were called “Jeeper’s”. My family loved the Southern Bradshaw’s and the majestic pines so much they bought and built a cabin in the “Acres” and we upgraded to “Sloper’s”, ( a term Crown King locals use to describe “Summer Cabin Owners”). We spent every weekend here and eventually my parents bought the Crown King General Store.
I married my husband here and began our family. Three of my 5 children were born here in Crown King, including Dimitri Dante, who now lives here and continues to create a “new vision” for the Historic Town of Crown King commonly known as “a little town with a heart of gold”. We continue, as a family, to develop on our vision everyday, towards what we want to be the most premier property in Crown King in the Southern Bradshaw’s for our most loyal visitors.
We continue to work daily on site, and we are now developing and improving the Crown King Event Center for future visitors, tourists, and guests to enjoy. The Event Center offers a “park-like setting”, with lush lawns and gardens, an outdoor rock stage, 5 new regulation horseshoe pits, an outdoor fireplace, picnic tables, a massive gazebo, playground and so much more is in the works. The most beautiful backdrop for your special day. The Event Center is the perfect place and venue for Wedding Receptions, Family Reunions and Picnics, Fundraising Events, Horseshoe Tournaments, Corporate and Religious Retreats, and so much more. We have plenty of parking, restroom and shower facilities, and plenty of majestic pines and natural beauty to go around.
At this time, The Crown King Event Center and Crown King Cabins, Suites, and Bunkhouse is the Southern Bradshaw’s most premier, one of a kind event venue and wedding venue. While we host unbelievable rustic weddings we can also host amazing receptions, parties and business luncheons and events, etc.
