Open October 26 - May 3 2015
At Circle Z Ranch, we welcome guests to the traditions and beauty of our historic property. We create unique, all- inclusive dude ranch vacations for guests of all ages and horseback riding abilities. Nestled in the heart of Southern Arizona’s Sky Islands, we have thousands of acres of the most scenic horseback riding trails in Arizona. Guided by expert wranglers, you will experience unspoiled landscapes rich in scenery of grasslands, canyons, and mountain ranges rising suddenly and dramatically out of the desert lowlands. Distinct to our ranch is the ever-flowing Sonoita Creek, creating a lush riparian oasis. Our diverse landscape has been the setting for many Western Movies.
Sitting on over 5000 acres, our main ranch property is home to our historic cottages, our main lodge, lush lawns, tennis courts, a heated outdoor pool, shuffle board, game room, basketball court, and a campfire site. At our Creek Ranch property, 30 minutes by horse from the main ranch, we have facilities for team penning, barrel racing, pole-bending, plus our setting for cookouts.
Served buffet style, our three meals a day are healthy and delicious, light and fresh, and always abundant. Our chefs are masters of Mexican dishes, and our menus often feature international cuisine. Aromas of fresh baked breads, pastries, and cookies will greet you each day of your stay. Appetizers are served in our cantina for social hour, where you can enjoy your BYOB drinks and forge new friendships.
At the end of the day, you will relax in one of our seven adobe cottages, meticulously detailed for your stay. We have accommodations for singles, couples and families, all furnished in colorful southwestern decor. All have outdoor patios for taking in the Arizona sunrises and sunsets.
The Circle Z Ranch has been owned by the Nash family since 1976, and our down to earth style is reflected in our friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We have hosted families for reunions and anniversaries, couples seeking a new adventure, and singles exploring the beauty of the desert. The social fabric of our ranch runs deep, with generations of guests visiting from around the world. Whether alone or with family and friends, you will quickly be part of our Circle Z family.
