Property Details

Updated: Jan 19, 2015
House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Come rest, recharge and rejuvenate at recently renovated historical Sabino Ranch a close drive to amenities but a world apart. Sabino Ranch is located just south of Sabino Canyon, ¼ mile as the crow flies from Canyon Ranch and 3 miles from Ventana Resort. It sits on its own very private 6 acres just a stones throw from Sabino Creek, the only perennial creek in the Tucson basin. Though there are many mountain views from the property there is also mesquite trees. There is an abundance of desert wild life to watch: roadrunners, coyotes, rabbits and javelina to mention a few. The ranch has its own horse facility and riding ring. It is conveniently located near restaurants, golf courses, shopping and other amenities.

The main house is 2800 square feet and has a beautiful master bedroom with a king four post bed with pillow top mattress and private sitting area. The other two guest bedrooms have beautiful queen beds with pillow top mattresses as well. All beds are dressed in hotel collection bedding. Each guest room has its own bathroom. There are also multiple gathering areas in the house as well: A library for quiet conversation in the evening, a bar for afternoon cocktails, a family room for watching TV, having breakfast and just enjoying the mountain views. In addition, there is a formal dining room for intimate dinners, an office with high speed internet and printer/FAX machine, if work must be done, and a country kitchen to cook or just hang out in.

The guesthouse has two bedrooms with queen slay beds and hotel collection bedding and pillow top mattresses as well. There is a charming bathroom, a sitting room with an efficiency kitchen and dining area. There is a TV in the guesthouse as well. All the rooms appointed in a hacienda style décor and most of the home and the guesthouse are built of adobe around 1917.

The outside has a patio for sitting and watching the mountains or the stars at night, a beautiful lawn for playing or watching the rabbits play. There is a heated pool and hot tub separate from the house with a full bath.

Historical Sabino Ranch with Heated Pool
Tucson Arizona

elegant, authenically southwestern accommodations

  • 5 of 5
When my dispersed family decided to spend Christmas week together in the Tucson area, I hunted for a suitable place meeting our specifications: five bedrooms, several baths, lots of space for both indoor and outdoor gatherings, well-equipped kitchen, heated pool, a property affording quiet privacy but not too distant from the city, and near places for both short and long hikes. It seemed an impossibly tall order.

I chose Sabino Ranch from its online description and pictures, but choosing a place from what’s available on a website can lead to disappointment. The choice turned out to be perfect for us and met or exceeded all of our needs. It is an historic ranch property with a main house and separate guest cottage on a large parcel from which, remarkably, no other houses are visible. Yet it is within a couple of miles of stores, cafés and restaurants, and within a half hour or so of most of the places one might want to visit in the Tucson area. And, it is just down the road from Sabino Canyon, a National Recreation Area where one can enjoy a landscape of desert, mountains and canyons in an easy stroll or an all-day hike into the nearby wilderness.

While Sabino Ranch is quietly elegant and comfortable, it is not for those looking for a luxury resort lifestyle. That said, for people seeking spacious, peaceful and authentically southwestern accommodations close to world-class natural areas and hiking and not far from Tucson’s urban amenities, I don’t know how you could do better.

Family Reunion/ Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family, 2 from Chicago, 5 from Florida, plus my wife and I met for a family reunion at the Sabino Canyon Ranch and every one agreed how much they enjoyed their stay there. It was quiet and tranquil except for when the grand kids filled their Funtime at the beautifully well maintained pool. Restaurants and food stores very convienent to reach. Very short trips to various sights/ attractions. Topped our last day there with a trip to Mt. Lemon where the sights were fantastic. Must not forget to praise how wonderful and helpful the Ranch Manager was. Very knowledgeable of the area wildlife. Highly recommended.

A wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful experience. We were in the country (chickens crowing each morning) and yet so close to the amenities. It is close (within 20 minutes) to Sabino Canyon, medical facilities, shopping, restaurants, and scenic drives.
The owner has done a wonderful job in restoring this old ranch and we were privileged to enjoy it. The photos are as accurate as you can get without actually being there.Plenty of space for our group of 10. Early morning coffee at an outside shaded table. The pool was refreshing. The views of the mountains were ever changing and always beautiful. This quaint yet modern ranch was a wonderful setting.
If you want a pleasant, calm, and beautiful setting, this is it. March was a great time to be there and we shall return.

Thank You to the owner and the caretaker for making this a special vacation spot for our family.

Excellent getaway, incredible accommodations

  • 5 of 5
Sabino Ranch is a cozy and quiet retreat near Sabino Canyon with easy access to a lot of outdoor recreation, including hiking and golf. We stayed for over a week in October, 2010, using the property as a base for doing ecological field work in the Sonoran Desert. Deb was incredibly gracious to let us be flexible on the dates of our stay and in her more-than-reasonable accommodations of our travel budget.

Sabino Ranch was home away from home. We were extremely pleased that at the end of each exhausting field day, we got to retreat to Sabino Ranch to enjoy the serenity and the maximum level of comfort in the main house. We were able to find everything we needed – excellent kitchen, dining, swimming, sleeping, and entertainment accommodations. We would recommend Sabino Ranch to anyone.
