Friendly, welcoming and attentive, Nancy is a wonderful host. Breakfasts were very tasty with generous portions. The room was as advertised, a smaller but very comfortable room. The facility overall is lovely, a large rambling house with large common areas, a full kitchen, common deck upstairs and down and a swimming pool. All well tended. 10 acres of desert ranch in an area with unusually populous cactus. Lots of paths on the property and easy to take a mile walk around the neighborhood in several directions and Saguaro National Park is practically next door.
Nancy and her ranch were a perfect getaway.
This haven is a treasure: ten acres of Sonoran desert at the base of the Tucson mountains, end of the road privacy, and a unique rambling house with many places to relax in privacy. Nancy's breakfasts are gourmet, plus the portions were so generous, we skipped lunch 2 of our 3 days. We could stay a week just to look over her many collectibles, photos, and paintings from her travels. Nancy and Deb are busy with their horses and ranch projects, so we often had the roam of the place all to ourselves. And Deb is a massage therapist for any needing back or neck work. We also enjoyed watching them wash their 4 horses. Then there are the birds they feed, cute dogs, baby chicks in a rolling tub--even a Gila monster out in the prickly pear. Overall, our favorite memories of our Tucson visit were mornings and afternoons lazing about her wonderful ranch. Thank you, Nancy and Deb. We hope to see you again next year.
Hi Bill and Cam...
How wonderful is that review.. thank you dear friends...! the birds are now in the coop.. still more to do but they are some happy campers with scratching all the worms up in my compost!
Have to do more shade for the horses... it is getting real hot here! We did use the pool yesterday to refresh after working on the coop... seems to take so much time!
Well friends.. hope you are well and everything going smoothly.. by next year we will have so much more done so it is easier for me .. i feel sometimes like a crazy paper hanger...
All will work out so it will be smooth. We took our horse on the trail .. first time Sat morning... BLISSFUL.. so gorgeous! They did awesome! Will have all 4 up and running soon. Have to get some shoes for the girls...
Ok.. thanks again.. and maybe next year.. you will spend a bit more time with us...
I will make my Aunt Sonia's marble cake... It is wonderful! I was going to bake for you but time got away from me... You guys are so delightful!
All babies are good but I think Zena misses Milo! Big hugs.. N&D&Z&Z&R
What a wonderful place Nancy has! It was so peaceful and relaxing. I just wish we had more time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Nancy is such a great hostess. And the breakfasts are THE BEST. I especially loved the maple flavored sausages. Thank you, Nancy.
The views were stunning, room & grounds extremely comfortable, the company always interesting, and Nancy went out of her way to accommodate our preferences while making us feel very at home. It is the only place I'd want to stay around Tucson! Thank you so much, Nancy, for sharing your corner of paradise with us.
Nancy is fabulous! Love her... Grounds of ranch are sooo gorgeous. She has put her heart & soul into this beautiful place. It was so restful & soul fulfilling. Nancy & her friends go to great lengths to make sure you have a wonderful breakfast, shared with loads of coffee on the veranda. I am still missing it!
Words can not express the incredibly wonderful experience my husband, our dog and I had at Nancy's ranch retreat. Such a special place, lovely warm home and comfortable rooms...all surrounded by the true beauty of the Arizona dessert. Nancy went above and beyond to make us feel at home and was the best host ever! She took such great care of us and even offered to take care of our doggie while we were gone to a friend's wedding!! She is an amazing human being and we look forward to visiting again and relaxing in her retreat ranch. Thanks Nancy!!
Nancy was an amazing host. She was very welcoming and my sister and I immediately felt at home. A stay with her is truly a way to rest and unwind. Her breakfasts were amazing is well! We plan on visiting her again soon.
I had a most wonderful time. Both the host and the property are amazing. Staying an Nancy's is like staying in a very special resort, highly recommanded.
