Rancho de la Osa

Rancho de la Osa
Arizona USA

Rancho de la Osa is located in Sasabe, Arizona, about an hour and a half southwest of Tucson. We are situated on just under 600 acres of high desert grassland and surrounded by nearly 120,000 acres of the Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge.

Rancho de la Osa is the most historic ranch in Arizona. A visit with us will allow you to ride trails frequented by U.S. Presidents and legendary figures like Pancho Villa; relax in the same rooms where notables like John Wayne and Gone with the Wind author Margaret Mitchell once stayed; and enjoy a cool drink in the Cantina—the oldest continually occupied building in the state of Arizona. Our ranch offers an unparalleled experience with exceptional food and wine and unmatched hospitality from our staff.

In addition to horseback riding, we offer guided off-road tours, guided fat tire electric bike tours, sport shooting and archery. We also have a sparkling pool for your enjoyment and plenty of quiet, scenic locations for relaxing. Because we are surrounded by the Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge, Rancho de la Osa is a prime location for bird watching.
Nestled among huge eucalyptus trees, the lifestyle of the Old Southwest is captured in the 1800’s Hacienda. This elegant building welcomes each guest with a warm and inviting ambience. Furnished with Mexican antiques the Hacienda is a gentle reminder of the fascinating history of Rancho de la Osa.
The territorial-style guest rooms are serene and welcoming, furnished with antiques and vintage furniture. Each of our guest rooms is incredibly unique, both in layout and Southwestern design. All are named after the historical figures that have enhanced the ranch’s colorful history.

Be a part of the history and join us for a truly unique and extraordinary experience.
Single travelers: Love to travel, but enjoy having someone to talk with during meals? Rancho de la Osa is the perfect getaway to relax and rejuvenate while meeting people from around the world. The Ranch is very private and peaceful, which lends itself to rejuvenating your mind and spirit. It is a wonderful place to spend your holidays and never be lonely.

Serving as a Guest Ranch since the 1920’s, Rancho de la Osa became a secluded gathering place for many well-known figures. Past guests include: President Lyndon B. Johnson, Adlai Stevenson, U.S. Supreme Court Justice William 0. Douglas, Hollywood Cowboy, Tom Mix and Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With the Wind.
