Leave city life behind at one of the most beautiful countryside properties in the Canelo Hills. At this cattle ranch, you don’t merely check into a room. Rather, you inherit a private house of your own–a much more interesting stay than a hotel. The guest houses at Open Cross Ranch are creatively 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 – hiking, biking, horseback riding. 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.
This region provides wonderful country for horseback riding. Schedule permitting, private rides are sometimes available with the owner. It’s a great way to see some of the other areas 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.
