Set on 250 eucalyptus-shaded acres near the Mexican border and Buenos Aires preserve, this tranquil late 19th-century ranch with adobe buildings offers guests activities such as cooking lessons, hiking, and guided history walks. The comfortable rooms have modern plumbing and fixtures, wood-burning fireplaces, and porches with Adirondack chairs. Bread baked on the premises, salads made with ingredients grown in the garden, and water drawn from the well all contribute to
the back-to-basics serenity. Rates include breakfast and dinner; horseback riding can be added for an additional fee.
