Sunglow Ranch was the perfect place to escape for a quiet, solo trip. Meals (more about the meals at the end) were served in a comfortable, cozy communal dining room, where I was able to chat pleasantly with Brooks, the manager, and the other guests, but I was free to enjoy solitude on a solo hike around the property, in the hot tub where I could gaze at the mountains and breathe in the serenity, without feeling like I was out in the wild by myself. The perfect mixture of solitude and safety. I always felt welcome to join in with the other guests, but I never felt pressured to leave my much needed quiet respite. Miles away from a big city, but with all of the luxuries of a resort, with lovely little details everywhere you look. (I loved the soaps and lotions!) Because Sunglow Ranch is nestled between the mountains and the desert, it was exquisitely quiet and refreshing. The stars were absolutely breathtaking! The views were outstanding, and the sightseeing in the area was wonderful. A short drive to Tombstone for the afternoon was a refreshing complement to my time of rest. At dusk, all of the beautiful little path lights are on, and it just looks like a little gem, really. But the most amazing thing was the food. Even though they don't offer a complimentary lunch, the food was so incredible, and so amply portioned, that I don't know how I could even have eaten lunch! The servers were friendly, and the table settings were lovely, but the food...it was as if you could taste the care and effort put into its preparation. The eggs were perfect (I don't usually like scrambled eggs) and the gluten free selections were outstanding. The combination of flavors that were put together was what I imagine a painting by Monet would taste like were it food, yet even more substantial and down to earth. Adventurous enough for gourmet, yet familiar enough for comfort. If I lived close by, I might visit again, if only for the amazing breakfast and dinner! I highly recommend this place for people who like the idea of camping out in the middle of the desert or mountains, but want the safety and comfort of a low key, yet understatedly luxurious resort.
