Fodor's Review

Rimmed by giant sycamore, ash, and cottonwood trees and surrounded by the Patagonia–Sonoita Creek Preserve, this seasonal guest ranch with plenty of activities served as a setting in the movie Red River and in several episodes of Gunsmoke. Rooms in the adobe-style buildings have hardwood floors, area rugs, and antique Monterey pine chests. Riders from beginner through advanced can be accommodated on adventurous, scenic trails. All meals, riding, and amenities are included (rates are lowered if you opt not to ride).
