Wickenburg house description

The Bunkhouse at Liberty Haven Ranch is a private, quiet, desert hideout with all the modern comforts. Not quite a bed and breakfast, not quite a guest ranch, but a place you can decompress, unwind, and enjoy our fantastic Arizona climate and wide-open spaces.

Take a nature hike; lounge in our heated pool; learn to handle and shoot rifles and pistols properly; see the constellations as clearly as our local gold prospectors did 120 years ago. Our private estate adjoins tens of thousands of acres of undeveloped hunting lands, precious metal claims, and riding trails. You are our sole houseguests in a modern two-bedroom, two bathroom home, fully-equipped and furnished with everything but your own groceries and wardrobe.

Beautiful climate; friendly animals; sunny days; quiet, private nights. And our prices are unbeatable! See our website link for a photo tour and full details of our offerings and our scheduled local activities.









* ADDITIONAL RENTAL INFORMATION:

* Weekend and 'long weekend' rates are also available (see website).
* Quoted rates already include all taxes and are rounded to the dollar here.
* Significant discounts are available for last-minute reservations of open high-season dates -- call us!

                        Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing stay at your beautiful home. Not only were tha accommodations great but so was the view. You are a lovely family and I enjoyed your company and conversation as well. The trail ride through the desert was a peaceful, beautiful time. I hope we will be able to stay again in September. Thank you for all you did to make the stay so lovely and God bless!! Kathy, Kory and June

                        Many thanks for a wonderful stay -- you live in a great location with lots to see. We especially enjoyed the nighttime wildlife expedition [hunting scorpions in the desert with a UV light]! Thanks again for your hospitality.

                        Thanks for the use of your Bunkhouse. This was our first VRBO and we will definitely rent again. It was great to have a larger living area than a hotel and being able to cook our own meals was definitely a plus! The stars at night were unbelievable. Wished we had of brought our telescope. We loved the peace and quiet. Thanks for the use of your store discounts on the keychain. Thanks again for the hospitality, we felt at home. Getting to be with your well behaved dogs made us not miss ours quite so much. We will use you again when we are in the area! Thanks,

                        We found the Bunkhouse at Liberty Haven Ranch fit our needs perfectly. It was spacious, had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, living and dining rooms. It was clean and quiet. The setting was in the middle of native plants and flowers. It was perfect! The hosts were friendly and helpful. Our trip went great, and we're already talking about going back next year.

                        I just wanted to say a little thank you for your hospitality during our stay. We stayed as a large group May 13-16. This was the first visit to Arizona for us. We really enjoyed the stay. and we loved all the dogs… Fergus, Luke, Honey Bear, Heidi, and Sandy! And we wished that we had the chance to ride the horses too, but it was nice to just spend a little time with them. Our visit to Arizona made me want to move there. I think that the ranch would be a great place to live! I just loved our stay so much that I truly did not want to leave. I would love to be able to come back some time and be able to spend some real time at the ranch. Our kids liked it there and were kind of sad that we didn't get to spend much time there (too many errands and plans, that kept us away from the ranch) but you have such a lovely place. We really did love being there! I just want to thank you again for the stay... we loved it!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: CD and Jeanne developed a love of the desert southwest as newlyweds. There is nowhere else they would rather be, and they enjoy offering guests a personal opportunity to develop the same sort of connection. Jeanne is a consummate desert naturalist, with a wide lore of regional plants and animals, and enjoys practicing old-fashioned homesteading skills on the Ranch. CD is a computer and communications engineer, and an NRA certified instructor in pistol and rifle disciplines. They breed and sell mixed retriever puppies to adoptive families all across the US and Canada.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wickenburg:
                      We love big sky, wide-open spaces, loyal and happy animal companions, an independent lifestyle, and a dark night sky full of bright stars. Our 150+ acre ranch, surrounded by open-range leaseholds, lets us live our dream every day. Wickenburg—a town widely rumored to have more horses than sedans—is the ideal location for lovers of the honest old-fashioned western country life. When we found our dream ranch, we were pleased to discover it included the Bunkhouse, allowing us to share our quiet, private retreat with dozens of old and new friends every year.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our Ranch is secluded and private, yet immediately accessible on a major highway. It's a great place for relaxation, recharging, contemplation, or (for family visitors of Wickenburg's world-class therapy centers) even rehabilitation. Petting all our friendly animals is great for your blood pressure! Or, if you're more the action type, the Bunkhouse is the perfect central location for you to plan your extreme assaults on any of dozens of Arizona attractions from the Grand Canyon to the Yuma sand dunes, including the Rangers and Royals spring training games, the Prescott Rodeo, the Arizona State Fair, Salt River tubing, cowboy mounted shooting events at Ben Avery, and many more warm-country attractions!
