La Hacienda de Sonoita
Ranked #2 of 4 Sonoita B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Tom & Cheryl are very accommodating and friendly hosts. My wife has a serious food allergy that they were sensitive to. We very much appreciated that. Property is perfectly situated for a weekend of wine tasting in the Sonoita area. Property is well maintained, comfortable and quiet. After 2 nights we felt like we had been on vacation for a week. We look forward to visiting you again soon! (James & Patricia)

We stayed here for a trip through Arizona wine country and it was a true delight. With all of the wineries a short distance away, the location is perfect. We even walked to AZ Wines and Hops! Tom and Cheryl make you feel like family. The breakfasts were outstanding. Be sure to check out some of Cheryl's art while you're there. Highly recommended!

A really neat place to stay! The grounds are close to wineries and remote enough to provide privacy. I recommend it ! Every detail was considered and addressed. The breakfast presentation includes Blakely glasses and dishes. Those of us who can recall the Blakely gas station give-aways caan appreciate the history. And, the food is superb. Tom and Cheryl attended to our every need. Our room was authentic Arizona cowboy decor. There were numerous longhorn cows nearby, which added to the rural ambience. The group breakfast was a special time because Tom and Cheryl and the other guests were wonderful conversationalists, who were knowledgeable on many interesting topics.

This was such a fun, fun trip! There were 5 of us gals who came for fun, wine and relaxation and had the best time! Tom and Cheryl were great hosts. The rooms were private, each opened onto a courtyard with their own private bath. The beds were comfortable, I slept great and that is saying alot! The breakfast was wonderful. We spent the evening playing cards and catching up with each other after a day spent visiting the wineries. We splurged and took a limo tour and I am so glad that we did since I am usually the driver. The views cant be beat and the house has been decorated beautifully in a western theme. I cant wait to come back and I am already planning additional trips with other friends.

Spent two nights in AZ wine country at La Hacienda and couldn't be happier. As you can read in other reviews, Tom and Cheryl are terrific hosts. First, both of them are very knowledgeable about the history and current state of just about everything in the area. So they have great insights into what to see / do / stay away from, etc. Second, this is the only B&B in the area that actually is a B&B: they serve a home-cooked breakfast daily, and it isn't a slouch continental breakfast affair or ordered out as others do in the area. I think Tom is the primary cook and over two days dished out breakfast burritos, blueberry pancakes, chicken sausage, fresh fruit with yogurt, granola, and honey, OJ, coffee, and probably a couple of things I forgot about. Tom and Cheryl joined us both days for breakfast with the rest of the guests and it's a great and lively venue to get to know and share your experiences with the other guests as well as with your hosts. Remember to ask Tom about Michigan's record versus Ohio State the past 12 years....

OK, how about the rooms? Spotlessly clean and comfortable and what you would expect at a B&B. Very homey and folksy decor, with separate roomy baths in each room. Only gripes are: no TV in the rooms or common area (I know, it's supposed to be a getaway...) and also no wi-fi (ditto on the getaway...). I can live without one or the other, but not both! Overall though this is a small thing and not something that would change my overall opinion of the place.

The common area and grounds are kept up nicely, they have a nice courtyard with a fountain, outdoor fireplace, grill, seating etc. that would be nice to use once the nights warm up a bit. They are located off a small dirt road that is easily navigable (at least from the south) so be prepared for that. They utilize a manual car gate to allow guests access, so you'll have to jump in and out of your auto to latch and unlatch the gate when you leave and return to the property.

Bottom line: If you're looking for a central location to stay in AZ wine country, you can't go wrong here. Very convenient to all the local wineries as well as Tombstone and Bisbee. Add the wonderful hospitality of Tom and Cheryl, a hearty breakfast, and clean and comfortable rooms and why would you stay anywhere else?

Room Tip: We stayed in the Ranch Room which was a decent size, with a comfortable bath with a large shower (no...

What a lovely "jewel in the desert"!

We took friends from Ireland to see the Southern Arizona sights, and stayed with Tom and Cheryl in Sonoita for one night. The house was decorated beautifully for Christmas, and even though it was cold outside the warm atmosphere and hospitality more than compensated! Tom met us out on the front sidewalk as we arrived!

Our rooms were cozy and clean - and wonderfully appointed. We loved the "hacienda" look of the place. They have done a great job of incorporating local culture into the ambience. Breakfast was fabulous (croissant cinnamon toast - how cool is that???) - and we were joined at the table by our hosts for lively and interesting conversation...

Thanks Tom and Cheryl, for helping us entertain our guests - we'll be back!
