Tubac lodge description
This historic property is nestled between 2 mountain ranges and surrounded by 130,000 acres of Wildlife Refuge. First settled by Papago indians, the Spanish Jesuit priests had a mission outpost built on the property in the late 1600's. It still stands today and is the oldest building in continuous use in the State of Arizona. It can be used by you as a game room, bar, for internet access and satellite television. The Hacienda, which is the main lodge, was built in the late 1800's. This property opened as a Guest Ranch in 1924. Wildlife abounds on this Southern Arizona ranch. Pancho Villa tried to capture this ranch during the Mexican Revolution. Horseback riding is available with a guide by reservation at an additional cost. Movie directors and actors have stayed here. American Presidents and a British Prime Minister have also stayed here. The ranch has also hosted famous authors, including Margaret Mitchell who wrote 'Gone with the Wind'. This a great vacation for history buffs and people who love nature in a quiet, serene setting. You can hike, bike or swim to your heart's content.

Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: Retired lawyers, we bought this historic property in 1996 and have lovingly restored it and documented its history beginning in the late 1600's. It is a beautiful place to listen to the silence, rejuvenate the spirit and invigorate the soul!
Why the Owner Chose Tubac:
We bought the property because of its fascinating history and 'Spiritual Nature'. Settled by Jesuits in the late 1600's, the history lives on in the adobe buildings that served as a mission outpost, then home to a cattle baron, Navajo historian, and guest ranch since 1924.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Privacy and peace surround you on 600 hundred acres of rolling grassland in the high Sonoran Desert. The sky is so clear at night, you can see the Milky Way. The ranch borders 130,000 acres of a National Wildlife Refuge, with endless trails to hike, cycle and view the abundant birds and wildlife.
