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 and relax in the same rooms where notables like John Wayne and Gone with the Wind author Margaret Mitchell once stayed. Our ranch offers an unparalleled experience with exceptional food and wine and unmatched hospitality from our staff.

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. Three room types are available:
1. Deluxe: a queen bed or two to three twin beds
2. Premium: a king bed
3. Suite: two adjoining rooms, one with a queen or king and the second with two twins
Meal times are focused around quality food and wine. Our primarily southwestern cuisine, encompasses a blend of Spanish, Mexican and Native American ingredients, and is served our historic hacienda dining room. Special dietary requirements can be accommodated with advance notice.
Whether you’re an experienced rider or have never ridden before, we have a horse for you. Our wranglers will match you with a horse appropriate to your experience level and lead you on scenic rides through sandy washes, over rocky terrain, past incredible rock formations and across lush desert grasslands.
In addition to riding, we offer guided off-road tours to explore the U.S.-Mexico border and a nearby ghost town, guided fat tire electric bike tours, guided hikes, sports 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.
Although we do not have organized children’s programs, we invite families to join in the ranch activities and encourage children to mix and make friends with other youngsters at the ranch. Our minimum age to ride is five. Children 12 years and older can participate in guided fat tire bike tours and shooting, though some firearms are restricted to children 16 and older.
