About Elkhorn Ranch - AZ

Fifty-one miles southwest of Tucson, in its own valley where mountains and desert meet, lies the Elkhorn Ranch. Here, since 1945, three generations of the Miller family have owned and operated the ranch, offering exceptional riding and comfortable living for thirty-two guests. Riding is the main interest with gentle or loping rides through the desert and more vigorous trips along the many mountain trails. There are seventy head of horses and the right horse can remain with each guest throughout the visit. Enjoy the sunshine, wintering birds, tennis and swimming. Roomy accommodations and good food.

Dining Ranch Dining: Hearty meals & fresh baked goods. Breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, morning pastries, steel cut oats or homemade granola & hot breakfast to order. Seasonal lunch entrees with fresh fruit and vegies and bountiful cookie platter. Lunch on the trail several days a week if you choose. Enjoy supper in the dining room, warmed by friendship and fireplaces. Mesquite BBQ twice weekly. Guests enjoy cocktails in their cabins before supper or BYO in a glass. Happy to accommodate special needs.
Activities Ranch Activities: Enjoy horseback riding in the scenic Baboquivari Mts and open desert country. Small guided rides are organized daily according to suit riders' interests and abilities. Take a relaxed walks or a vigorous hike. Play at the tennis court or 50" heated pool or enjoy shuffleboard, ping pong or horseshoes, or the well-stocked library.
