Circle Z Guest Ranch is located in the center of the sunshine district of America, and the beauty of the ranch setting is unsurpassed. The delightful winter climate of southern Arizona makes for the utmost enjoyment of outdoor rest or activities. In addition to attractive and convenient accommodations, many outdoor activities such as riding, swimming, tennis, target shooting, croquet, etc., are available to our guests.
Every effort has been made to continue the atmosphere of simplicity and still give our guests the comforts which make for pleasant living in the country. One of the greatest charms of the ranch is its informality.
We have entertained guests at our ranch every winter since 1926. Celebrating nearly 90 years of excellence, the Circle Z Ranch is situated on 6,500 acres at 4,000 feet altitude. Guests ride ranch-bred horses through the foothills of the historic Santa Rita Mountains and under huge cottonwood trees along the ever-flowing Sonoita Creek. As a quiet, family oriented ranch, we put emphasis on riding and down-home hospitality.
We are known for our excellent horses and great variety of trails. We are also recognized worldwide for bird watching throughout the ranch and on the adjacent Patagonia Nature Preserve.
There are accommodations for singles and families in adobe cottages furnished in colorful southwestern decor, with no distraction of televisions and in-room phones. During your stay enjoy riding, the heated pool, tennis court, Adult Cantina, game room and cook-outs. Three bountiful meals daily are served buffet style in the main lodge’s dining room.
