“The prettiest and quietest spot the desert has to offer”
Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

People asked me why we stayed at a horse ranch for a month. I tell them that Rancho Rio Verde is a horse ranch but is also a place where years of planning and construction have made it a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the fruits of Joe and Carmella's work. The landscaping on the 62 acres is picture perfect, the rooms and bunkhouse are designed to blend in and offer first class lodging. For a horse person and his/her horse this place is really the finest place I have seen where both can live in harmony for the winter months. The owners are always available to tend to any needs and the impromptu cocktail hours are more fun than the daytime events at most resorts! When you stay here you really want to thank Joe and Carmella for sharing their part of heaven with you.
