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!
