Leave city life behind at one of the most beautiful countryside properties in the Canelo Hills. At this 20,000 acre ranch, you don’t merely check into a room. You inherit a private house of your own; a smart alternative to a hotel. The guest houses at Open Cross Ranch are finely furnished, with just the right touch of rustic charm. Each house has a kitchen and laundry room, and is stocked with the conveniences of home such as dishes and linens. Enjoy the great outdoors on the Ranch’s private trails for hiking, biking, or horseback riding if you bring your own horse. At about 5,100 feet, this Madera oak woodland is rich with wildlife and changing seasonal landscapes. The stunning nighttime skies are a stargazing paradise, and the picturesque views are favored by artists and photographers. This tranquil retreat is in the very heart of Arizona Wine Country, with almost a dozen vineyards & wineries offering tastings and tours of award-winning wines.
Thousands of acres to horseback ride, on-site and in the surrounding areas, beckon a getaway with your own horse. Schedule permitting, private trail rides are sometimes available with the owner; a great way to see the working side of the Ranch.
For fishing, water sports, or just a relaxing day by the water, Parker Canyon and Patagonia lakes are close-by. Sonoita, Patagonia and other adjacent towns offer an array of restaurants, shopping, historic attractions, museums, Farmers’ Markets, organic produce, and sporting activities. Key events are held throughout the year, such as the Sonoita Rodeo, horse races, food events, wine festivals, county fairs and more.
