“This is the place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2011

We rented the Juanita Casita for a family reunion and for my daughters graduation from ASU. The house was perfect for our family, setup with a kitchen and plenty of room for our family of six. The house was very clean as was the grounds around the property. The aura of peace and quietness is worth visiting for a few days or longer!! It is pet friendly for those of us who travel with our pets. I would definately recommend this to all my friends and family.

Really amazing place at a great price. Folksy but first class, Rancho Sonora is a marriage of the rustic and the elegant. They include a nice little breakfast with good coffee too. It's like being in one of the better places in Santa Fe or Sedona - at a fraction of the cost. The place is all good taste: nothing is obvious but the quality.

The purpose of my stay was to escape the cold temperatures and dreary skies of the Midwest, I was fortunate that the sun did shine during my visit. My room open to a magical courtyard filled with an assortment of plants that had the most beautiful smells....it is quiet ,peaceful with comfortable beds..the decor is so pretty. I toured the Greek Orthodox Monestery, which is another breathtaking spot in the middle of the desert..Highly recommend this little Inn to any weary traveller, as they will be quite surprised by this little gem...the staff is super friendly and go beyond expectations for anything you may need..

We stayed here on 12/5-6, for the 3rd time .. this visit we were in the Fernando/Evangeline suite, mainly because we wanted the full kitchen to do our own cooking .. all, as usual was wonderful. Linda is the perfect hostess, and does an outstanding job in making your stay so very comfortable ... went to the Greek Monastery down the road again, and it was a beautiful visit also .. thanks, Linda !!

Set among a lovely garden of cacti and waterfountains the courtyard is very peaceful with a romantic feel. We were very comfortable for our one night stay. The only down side for us was after a long journey to Rancho Sonora we then had to go back to Florence about 7 miles to find something to eat. we decided on a picnic in the courtyard which was lovely but we were rather to tired to enjoy it fully. we were entertained by the large toads catching bugs. Other residence told us that they were poisionous, the owner hadnt mentioned it which we thought she might. We had a basic self service breakfast.

We spent 3 days at the Rancho Sonora while visiting family in the area. This is a beautiful, peaceful, very comfortable place to stay. We will definately be back; hopefully for a longer stay next time.

I can't say enough about Rancho Sonora! We had my dad's 80th birthday party there last weekend. I started making plans sight unseen over the internet way back in Sept. Linda was so helpful and so patient with all my emails and questions and changing how many rooms we needed etc.. etc.. She was great! When we got there late Friday night we weren't sure what we would find. We were so pleasantly surprised when we saw the rooms and the litlle Casita we rented. We could not have asked for a better place. Wonderful beds, the place so clean the tiles sparkeled, everything we needed in the kitchen, perfect. Then we had reserved the clubhouse for our party for the next day. wow, again, it could not have been better. The camp hosts had the tables set up for us, the place spotlessly cleaned and they hung out there in case we needed anything the whole time. We were so pleased and everything worked out so well. The pool was great for those who wanted to swim, hot tub was enjoyed also. The courtyard is so cute and the whole place gives off such a "homey" feel. Again, I can't say enough about how great it all was for us. I would highly recommend this place for a family gathering, family reunion, party or just a stay anytime!
