Thank you Charley and Mary and the entire crew at Elkhorn for an absolutely wonderful week over spring break. The food, the wranglers, the rides, the hikes, and everything else was fantastic. For anyone (family or singles or couples) wanting to get away from the rat race, getting "off grid" at Elkhorn and enjoying the beauty of the desert and... More

Tucked in between two mountains, just off a high plaine, in the beautiful Southwest Arizona country-side is Elkhorn Ranch. Elkhorn is family run and hosts a limited number of guests; accordingly, staff attention is friendly and superb. The guests also get to know each other and many are repeaters. The ranch property is PEACEFUL and the stars at night amazing.... More

What could be more fun than music week at Elkhorn? We just returned from Elkhorn Ranch’s early January music week, where fiddler Sandol Astrausky, guitar/banjo/uke player Rory MacLeod, and mando/banjo player Bill Burke led old-time string jams every evening and entertained guests with rollicking cowboy songs. This to top off a perfect dude-ranch day: a hearty breakfast in the long... More

What a splendid guest ranch this is! We visited during the week when the ranch offers (in addition to everything else) music lessons for aspiring old-timey musicians. In addition to the horseback riding, hiking, gorgeous scenery, star-gazing, comfy cabins, and exceptionally good vittles, there was excellent old-time music each evening with a group of players on banjo, guitar, fiddle, and...

My wife and I have been taking dude ranch vacations annually for more than 20 years. We've got some favorites that we've visited multiple times. After our first visit to Elkhorn this month we know it is joining that short list of places we'll be going back to. Everything about this ranch is wonderful. The setting is beautiful; the cabins...

I called this the perfect family vacation because it was for us. But it was equally perfect for the couples and singles who were there at the same time. Every person - each owner, staff person and guest- was friendly, welcoming and inclusive. It is a very happy place! It is informal and honestly rustic in the best sense of... More

My wife and I discovered the Elkhorn purely by happy accident on a driving holiday nine years ago. We always talked about returning and were finally able to do so last January when we once again found the same very high standards of eating, accommodation and horse riding. We are booked to return a third time this January 2015 and... More

My 13 year old grandson and I just returned from a four night stay. I have stayed at two other Arizona dude ranches in the past which were fine. The Elkhorn Ranch in Tucson, however, is exceptional, and I look forward to returning again and again. When you are among guests who have been coming for five years to over... More

We just had the most fantastic family vacation at Elkhorn Ranch. We loved everything about it. The Millers and all their staff are so friendly and professional, the horses are very well-trained and skillful, the food is great, the accommodations are charming and comfortable. You can tell that there is a lot of care given to every aspect from horse-training... More

I've been to Elkhorn Ranch four times now, most recently in April 2014. I feel at home as soon as I arrive and the Millers and their wonderful staff make everything just right. I visit as a single, but it's always easy to meet other people and discover new friends while also renewing friendships from previous visits. The accommodations are... More
