“A True Find...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We recently stayed at Sunglow Ranch for two nights. We initially stumbled across it looking for a place to stay near the Chiricahua Mountains. We thought, "Well, this should do." Well, it more than "did" for us. Although a bit of a drive from Tucson, the ranch is really a lovely destination in itself. It is set at the base of the mountains and if you book one of the outside rooms (we stayed in Casa Grande) you have a lovely view of the surrounding grounds and mountains. The room was large but cozily decorated with a mix of antiques and traditional furnishings and even a fireplace. The bed was very comfortable with extra blankets and pillows as needed. L'Occitane amenities and a stocked mini-bar provided all we needed. The café on-site provided great breakfasts, packed picnic lunches, and multi-course dinners. Breakfast (try the huevos rancheros) and lunch (I liked the veggie wrap and ordered it twice) were fantastic. We even got homemade cookies. Dinner could have been a bit more inventive, but overall the food was good and they had local wines available for order. We traveled here to visit the Chiricahua Mountains, which are definitely spectacular, but the ranch with its "guard geese", 3 mile walking trail, firepit, and pool/Jacuzzi is also worth a visit in itself. Our highlight was horseback riding with Bucky (the wrangler) and Susan (our hostess). We went "off-trail" and got to feel like real cowboys. We are already fantasizing about our return trip.

Room Tip: We stayed in Casa Grande, but any of the rooms on that side of the resort offer spectacular views.

Our family spent a week at Sunglow, and would have been thrilled to stay longer. This is the perfect place to unwind and recharge - just stepping on the property I felt the stress melt away. Gorgeous, peaceful setting; lovely, extremely accommodating, yet laid-back staff; delicious meals with plenty of choices; very comfortable rooms; and lots to do. Our kids (8 & 6) were in love with Sunglow (“Mommy, I want to live here!”). There was horseback riding (the best way to see the ranch), hiking, bocce ball, horse shoes, tree swings, pool and hot tub, evening campfires (with s’mores!), all kinds of wildlife to watch, and when they needed a break from the sun, a game room with movies, books and board games. Mostly they loved exploring, and with the open setting they could roam free while we looked on from the comfort of one of Sunglow’s many outdoor sitting areas. We took several day trips (Bisbee, Tombstone, hiking the Chiricahuas), but honestly, I would have been just as happy to chill out at Sunglow the entire time.

We had a family reunion with ages ranging from 6-80 and there was something for everyone: hiking, swimming, horse back riding, bird watching, stargazing, games, great food and so much more. The service was phenomenal. The staff was friendly and went over and above to make sure we were all happy. We can't say enough how beautiful the setting is - placed right at the foothills of the Chiricahua Mountains. The casitas are well decorated and welcoming. It was wonderful to light a fire in our room on a chilly night. We also enjoyed s'mores by the outside fire pit. The location is a great place to use as a home base to explore not only the Chiricahuas, but also Tombstone, Bisbee, Cochise Stronghold, ghost towns and the Amerind Museum among others. This is a secret jewel you shouldn't miss.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Casitas that faced the mountains. They had the best views by far. I would recommen...

Great views of the mountains, exceptional service, good food, and a relaxing atmosphere made a perfect weekend. Even though this is off the "beaten path", it is well worth the time and drive. Highly recommended....

Beautiful setting. Casitas are OK but not great. Good location if you want to hike the Chiricauas. They offer horseback riding.Big breakfast so we didn't even need lunch. Pool and hot tub.Nice for families. A good place to simply relax.

A lovely southwestern casita with every amenity, views of the Chiricahuas and fascinating geology and history; excellent birding while sipping a martini in the shade of a twinkling ramada; the opportunity to ride my own horse where the deer, cattle and sand hill crane were roaming, a spacious equine room with views and luxurious bedding with a view. A 60th birthday effortless to arrange; a personalized menu with all my favorites ... from ceviche to pistachio encrusted salmon to gluten free rolls to melt in your mouth chococolate cake . Managers Brooks and Susan made my 60th birthday a fun and fabulous event.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

Dear J and J,
It was a joy to help you and your friends celebrate such an important milestone! So glad you had fun. Thank you for allowing our team the privilege of hosting this "momentous" occasion for you.

You've described Sunglow Ranch in such a lovely way--I can only imagine that more people will want to visit this remote sanctuary (in an ancient caldera!) along the road less travelled.

May it be a very special year for you both!

Warm regards and grateful thanks from Sunglow Ranch,

Brooks
