“Real AZ history revisitied”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Five years out of the past seven, we have celebrated our anniversary here. Only uncontrollable circumstances kept us away the other two years. If you yearn for the old west, where cattle were king and horses worked for their feed every day, this place is where you want to be. John Wayne roamed the halls of this ranch, when the film "Red River" was in production. But that was then, and today, Wendy Stover offers all of the history of the region along with the gracious hospitality that results in the "5-star" ratings given by virtually every guest who has bothered to write a review. Trip Advisor calls the Hacienda Corona de Guevavi "number 1 of 3 B&Bs in Nogales." What it actually is: the most authentic taste you could hope for of the authentic old west not long from when the Gadsden Purchase added this land to the United States in 1856. Don't miss it!

Room Tip: The "John Wayne Suite" is a hoot, but all the rooms are lovely and comfortable.

I can't say enough good things about this place. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights celebrating our wedding anniversary. We have stayed at many B&B's this place is far and above any of them. The owner and hostess Wendy is wonderful and gracious. We stayed in the La Patrona suite it has a comfy king bed and large fireplace. The bathroom was my favorite, it is huge and beautiful. We had a lovely patio right outside our suite. This suite is for romance! The property is gorgeous with spectacular views. Wendy served amazing breakfasts but I think our favorite was a little get together with her at 5:30 pm each night she served appetizers and wine, it was lovely, just like her. We will be back, it was a little cool last week so didn't get to enjoy the pool. When we come back it will be in July or August. We also went into town of Nogales AZ and walked across the bordor into Nogales Mexico and had a great time. Very fun; we had lunch downtown and had the best enchiladas and margaritas. If you go please don't hesitate to walk across the border into Mexico we felt very safe and the Mexican people were very warm and welcoming. I'm also included in some pics and I will try to post a video.

Staying here is like being the welcome guest of a wealthy rancher in Old Arizona. The sprawling ranch house and out buildings are furnished with taste and character. The hostess is gracious and generous. I stayed with my mother in the Duke room, which has a separate sleeping area with fold-out couch. But we hardly spent any time in the room. Instead, we relaxed in front of a fire in the living room while sipping wine and chatting with our hostess. The ranch is an ideal location for a retreat, destination wedding or other event. There are wonderful things to do in the area - if you can tear yourself away from the ranch.

Room Tip: La Patrona is an incredibly elegant and romantic room for a couple. But every room is nice and gues...

Loved it. Will definitely go back. We were charmed from the second we arrived. Wild duck pond to greet us, slow winding hill, sweeping vistas. This B&B is the quietest place I have been in and is decorated to perfection. Each room individually styled and proportioned. Large homey farm type kitchen and verandas everywhere. We felt at home in 5 minutes

When we visited Hacienda Corona for the first time, it was late at night. After driving a mile off the main road down a dirt, washboard trail, my wife and I had our doubts. Then we arrived at the main house, entered the courtyard, and we were transported into another time and place -- the old West. We have since gone back nearly half-a-dozen times and each time is better than the last. This place should be designated an historic landmark. Original murals by Mexican artist and bullfighter Corona decorated the interior walls. This hacienda has four rooms to rent -- we have rented them all except for "The Duke" - John Wayne's favorite bedroom when he was a frequent visitor there. (He first visited when he was filming a John Ford western nearby.) The Stovers are wonderful owners and make you feel like you are more family than guests. It's conveniently located, Mexico for lunch is a 20 minute drive. There's horseback trips thru the Santa Cruz Valley and into the mountains surrounding it, sunning by the swimming pool, and incredible Mexican/Arizona style breakfasts. I have found old (meaning 300-500 yrs old) indian pottery around this Hacienda left by the Hohokum Indians who camped out exactly where the hacienda now stands. I highly recommend spending at least a few nights at this authentic, unique hacienda.

Room Tip: Book early since it's generally sold out. While there, check out Tubac, Tumacocori and Patagoni...

I stayed here on a long road trip, and totally loved the experience. The property is magical, and the host (Wendy) went out of her way to make sure my visit was enjoyable, even accomodating a special dietary request for breakfast.

I loved wandering the property, and waking up in the morning to the sound of so many kinds of birds was amazing. I wish I could have spent longer here; it is such a restful place, and there are all kinds of corners in which to park with a book, or take a nap, or just sit and enjoy the desert.

I'll be back when I'm in the area

We did not know much about the Hacienda when we arrived. We had received a gift certificate to go there and did not have much information about the ranch. Boy were we in for a surprise! The accommodations were outstanding. My husband and I slept so well in the La Patrona room. Wendy Stover, the owner, was so hospitable and friendly- we felt right at home. And the next morning, we had a delicious breakfast that would put any other hotel's breakfast bar to shame! We are telling all our friends and family about this wonderful place.

We will surely visit again!
