A Genuine Ranch


Leave city life behind at one of the most beautiful countryside properties in the Canelo Foothills. At this historic ranch, you don’t merely check into a room. Instead, you have the luxury of having a private house of your own, a much more rewarding stay than a hotel. The guest houses at Open Cross Ranch speak artistry and 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 – hiking, biking, birding, horseback riding and more. At 5,100 feet, this Madera oak woodland is rich with wildlife and changing seasonal landscapes. The stunning nighttime skies are meant for serious stargazing, and the picturesque views are a dream for artists and photographers. This tranquil retreat is in the  heart of Arizona’s Wine Country, with vineyards & wineries offering tastings and tours of award-winning wines. The area also features a popular distillery and microbrewery.


This area is prime country for horseback riding. Schedule permitting, private rides are sometimes available with owner, Mac. It’s a great way to see some of the other areas of the Ranch. If you have your own horse, inquire with Open Cross Ranch about boarding opportunities during your stay.


Area lakes, Parker Canyon and Patagonia are great for fishing, water sports, or a relaxing day by the water. Sonoita, Patagonia and other adjacent towns offer a wonderful selection 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.
