Visit our historical ranch, built in 1896, and stay in the original adobe cowboy bunkhouse in the Sulphur Springs Valley in southeast Arizona. Enjoy our paintings and western artifacts that we hope will create an atmosphere of days of old.
We are surrounded by the American West, mountain views in all directions and incredible sunsets.
During the day enjoy the desert colors and views of the Chiricahua, Dos Cabasas, and Dragoon mountains. Relax and watch the birds and wild life that are abundant in the area, bobcats, coyotes, ringtail cats, deer, javelina, quail, rabbits, doves, hawks, owls, and our local roadrunner and his sometime female guest. In the winter you will see thousands of Sandhill Cranes that winter in the nearby Sulfur Springs Valley. In the evenings enjoy our spectacular sunsets and amazing stargazing with clear desert skies.
Mi Ranchito is located in the heart of western history. A 50 Minute drive will take you to the Town of Tombstone “The Town too Tough to Die” with its famous Boot Hill Cemetery and loads of history or to Bisbee which was once a thriving silver and copper mining town and its famous “purple pit” which proved to be one of the richest mining sites in the world. There are several smaller ghost towns in the vicinity which were known for mining. It is worth a drive to visit Pearce where you will find the old Pearce jail and an antique and pottery shop run by a wonderful lady named Patty. Right around the corner is Marcia’s Garden Handcrafted Goat Milk Soaps and Lotions and a barnyard of fun goats that you can pet. Do stop by and enjoy some local color. Not much remains of the ghost towns of Gleason and Courtland but there is plenty of hiking and just reflecting on days gone by.
A must to see is Cochise Stronghold Canyon, a short drive from the ranch through picturesque pistachio and almond orchards. This was the final refuge for Cochise, the great Chiricahua Apache Chief. This was home to Cochise and his people for many years. The Canyon offers a wide variety of plant life, wildlife and rugged cliffs with many springs and streams, plenty of bird watching, and hiking. Explore the unique ecology and geology of this historical area.
Want to go horseback riding? Visit the Triangle T Ranch that has a wonderful restaurant and saloon with entertainment located 10 miles from Mi Ranchito. Enjoy riding in the incredible Texas Canyon with it’s breath taking rock formations and scenic views. Cowboy celebrities such as John Wayne, Will Rodgers and Steve McQueen once walked the grounds of the ranch.
Bring your own horses to MI Ranchito. We have complete horse facilities which include 2 corrals an arena and fenced property. Or ride trails off property in all directions.
There is so much to do besides just relaxing such as: Visit Fort Bowie National Historic Site and learn about the history of the Southwest –Kartchner Caves State Park, the largest wet cavern in the United States and just recently discovered. (highly recommended) –At least a dozen local wineries- The Amerind Foundation Museum – and the Gadson Hotel in Douglas (wonderful restaurant) - Faraway Ranch, one of the oldest ranches in southern Arizona, dates back to pre-Civil War. There is much more but, we will leave this up to your imagination and fortitude.
