Other Amenities

  • This is a ranch type guest house gracefully built and appointed but on a dirt road and near a barn with horses. I recommend a truck or SUV because a small sedan may have some difficulty on the dirt road, especially during the rainy season. The barn is immaculately kept and not a nuisance, although individuals with allergies might have issues with the dust from the dirt road and barn area. I will consider taking guests out horseback riding if I am confident of their abilities and they sign a waiver. I can provide bird feeders and most anything to make your stay enjoyable....moreless

Car: Necessary

Located in the quaint old western mining town of Patagonia, Arizona (pop. almost 1,000!), now home to artists, bird watchers, mountain bikers, trail riders, and all types of nature lovers. One of the premier bird watching areas in the United States with its unique 'sky island' habitats, over 300 species have been slighted here.

Ask anyone who now lives here what brought them to the area and you will hear many different answers but with one common thread -- the beauty of the wide open spaces and the amazing wildlife and recreational opportunities available. I came to explore the West on horseback, others for mountain biking, hiking, meditation or just the great year around climate at our 4000-5000' elevation.

Tour the nearby wineries of Arizona's wine country in Elgin, visit Spanish missions and ghost towns, go horseback riding, hiking, biking or bird watching or even go to Nogales, Sonora for a great mariachi brunch and shopping.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: OWNER/AGENT After living all over the world as an Air Force brat, I settled in Southern California. At the age of 42, I decided to take up horseback riding which brought me to the Circle Z Ranch outside of Patagonia. When I retired from my job as a senior Department Store Executive, my husband and I bought land and built our dream 'Fallen Oak Ranch' where I enjoy the sheer beauty of the land, my horses, and dogs. I am also co-owner of Long Realty Sonoita-Patagonia.

Why the Owner Chose Patagonia:
If you like to be a little remote, down a mile and a half of dirt road, up on a ridge with jaw-dropping views, near horses, birds, cattle and other wild life, you'll love this place. A SUV is recommended because the dirt road is tough on small sedans. You can hike right out from the house to incredibly beautiful canyons and ridges. The Coronado National Forest is just one property away.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
World class bird watching, the ability to ride a horse directly out into the Forest without trailering, watching my dogs run off leash, stopping the car to let the cattle pass, seeing the incredible stars at night and spectacular sunsets are all a part of living where I do.
