Although this was our fifth visit to Circle Z, I was a little apprehensive since it was under new management and wondered if there were going to be many changes to the ranch we love. I should not have worried! Yes, there are some minor changes but they are all for the good. The additional amenities in the rooms are... More

My wife and I had our first ranching experience and it could not have been better. George and Jenny made us feel welcome and they were very accomodating. Their wranglers taught us so much that by the end of our trip we felt like old hands on the horses. The food was amazing and our housekeeping staff were wonderful and... More

I travelled alone to Circle Z but had arranged to meet up with five friends from various countries. This ranch was ideal for us as we had six of the eight rooms in the Casa Rosa adobe building and some of the rooms were adjoining. I was very impressed with my accommodation – not only was there the bedroom and... More

The ranch is an excellent vacation spot for riders- being my first time to a dude ranch, I was not disappointed! Staff was very accommodating. George knows his horses, and is good at matching up rider with horse. The wranglers were knowledgable and happy to make the ride what u wanted. Some of the trails were very challenging. The views...

The accommodations, the food, the staff, the scenery and, not to forget, the horseback riding. I have been going to Circle Z for the last 4 years, always right after Thanksgiving, and I simply have to go back again this year. It is so peaceful and beautiful. With no TV or WI-Fi in your room it is truly a place... More

We had the pleasure of spending 4 days at this gem of a place! The staff is very warm and welcoming. The food is perfection (thanks to Heather & her crew)- with guests' dietary needs given very special attention. The mantra I heard over and over from the staff was "you're on vacation - we'll take care of you" and... More

My family and I have been visiting this extraordinary guest ranch for years. Located in the gorgeous mountains of Southern Arizona it boasts quiet, big skies, beautiful views, and peacefulness. Its main focus is horseback riding and the the riding is just exquisite. The wranglers are unbelievable, the trails and views breath-taking and the horses are great. Pam and Jock,... More

Circle Z Ranch in Patagonia has great horses, wonderful riding, lovely accommodations, delicious food, and terrific staff. That, by itself, would be enough to recommend it. But what is really the best part is that no matter who you are, you will have a wonderful time. The mix of people who was there the week I went ranged from retired... More
