If you are looking for something that goes beyond a mere hotel stay on your next visit to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, then look no further than the Rancho Sonora Inn.  Year round, Rancho Sonora’s doors are open to a limited number of lucky guests.  With only four charming guest rooms, a gracious Southwestern suite and three full-sized casitas (small cottages), Ranch Sonora retains the feel of an exclusive private hideaway, which is exactly what it was created to be nearly a century ago.  There is nothing of the cookie cutter hotel found here.  As Arizona Highway’s feature video so eloquently states, “introduces rustic to refinement…an eclectic mix of furnishings, fine bedding and modern amenities”.

One of Florence’s original hacienda land sites, Rancho Sonora is a refreshing oasis found in the Sonoran Arizona desert.  Though Rancho Sonora’s history reaches back as far as the 1930’s, it is anything but an old relic.  It has undergone careful and thoughtful multi- year restoration through the watchful eye of Linda Freeman, the Inn’s owner.  She has brought to life again the rustic but gracious Southwestern living this part of the country is so famous for.

The amenities are plentiful and full of charm for any discriminating traveler.  Each of our uniquely designed and decorated guest rooms feature fine linens, plush towels, satellite televisions, DVD players, coffee makers, clock radios, high-speed internet access, refrigerators and individual room climate control.  Those are the standard amenities, but then there are many unique surprises too.  The guest rooms rooms have been carefully and thoughtfully arranged to be a private respite from your busy life.

For those wishing a more spacious or family environment, a home way from home, the quanit casitas are the perfect answer.  They offer all the conveniences of home but without all the hustle and bustle.  You can relax in the roomy casitas in simply elegant, comfortable style or enjoy a swing on the porch or have a little lunch on the private terrace. All the guest roooms and casitas have been decorated and appointed with only your comfort and pleasure in mind.

And if you can tear yourself away from your own personal hideaway long enough, you will discover a delightful pool and hot tub where you can enjoy a little dip before dinner or cool off from the afternoon sun.  If you are keen on barbequing, stoke up the coals at the barbeque areas and delight in a tasty grilled dinner.  This is a wonderful way to finish up the day and take in the colorful and utterly spectacular Arizona sunsets.

While staying at the Rancho Sonora Inn, you’ll feel like you’re a world away from all the stresses and concerns of the daily life.  Come and relax – let Rancho Sonora Inn be your own private retreat.
