We had a fabulous time, and the hospitality at Xanadu Ranch was terrific. I truly felt at home and like one of the family! I can't wait to go back, and next time-we are staying longer!!!

My husband and I stayed at Xanadu with a couple friends for one night. We did a bike tour of the Sonoita/Elgin wineries - a blast! Xanadu was the perfect resting place after our long ride. We stayed in room #2, which had everything we needed including a small fridge, microwave, dishes, etc. We brought food along and had a picnic dinner on the patio next to the koi pond. The views of the surrounding mountains were great and, later at night, the stars were absolutely amazing. I've never seen so many! Karen and Bernie were extremely friendly and helpful in every step of the way - from making the reservation, getting winery information, offering suggestions for restaurants and hiking trails, and even giving us their phone # and offering to pick us up if we got too tired during our wine ride! Our friends brought their 3 dogs along to the ranch and it worked out great for them. This getaway was simple, but one of our favorites. I would definitely reccomend to others and plan on returning.

The Xanadu Guest Ranch is located in gorgeous high Sonoran Desert country, surrounded by ranches and hills and distant mountains. The ranch itself, originally built in 1911, is comprised of a main house and guests quarters on horse friendly property. Bernie and Karen are warm and friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have as relaxing a stay as possible. There is a gurgling koi stocked fishpool to stretch out next to in deck chairs, or you can swing in the hammock, listening to the wind in the trees. The rooms are tidy and spacious and outfitted with everything you'll need. There is a snack shack in the main building stocking cereal, yogurt, fruit, and also delicious mangosteen juice among other things for purchase. Near the inn, in Sonoita, is the Stakeout, a fine western style restaurant where you'll get one of the best margaritas in the region!

At night, walk out under a panoply of dazzling stars and listen to coyotes singing.

Also don't miss the Sonoita Vineyard, a 20 minute drive away from Xanadu, where you can taste and purchase fine table wines. .
We had a truly wonderful stay and can't wait to go back!

The Xanadu Ranch is located on a beautiful, rolling-grassland ranch around a mile south of the crossroads of Sonoita. It is smack in the middle of Arizona wine country and practically within a stone throw of the fairgrounds, some small shops, and a few good restaurants. It’s a perfect place to relax and unwind while enjoying life’s simple pleasures.

Karen and Bernie are the perfect hosts. They are friendly and their ability to make you feel comfortable appear effortless; they seem to really enjoy what they do. They offer a hybrid B and B experience; you have the choice to order a continental breakfast basket to enjoy in your room or in one of their outdoor sitting areas (which include a patio with a table, hammock, and beautiful views of the mountains, or an area with a soothing Koi pond and equally beautiful vistas).

We stayed in the casita which was extremely cozy and also had great views (especially out the large kitchen window). The bed was comfy and the kitchen was appointed with a small refrigerator, a microwave, and a coffee maker. We enjoyed getting up in the morning, making a pot of coffee, and enjoying it in both our room and out on the patio while chatting with Karen, or Bernie, or other guests, or just vegging out by ourselves while spotting gigantic jackrabbits and other wildlife.

This was the first trip in a long time where my husband and I actually felt relaxed. Aside from attending horse races one day at the fairgrounds and having a couple nice suppers at two of the local restaurants, we decided not to do a most of things on our hypothetical activities list (like wine tasting or fishing in one of the nearby lakes) and simply enjoyed the peace and quiet. We didn’t want to leave. We will definitely stay at the Xanadu Ranch again (we’re just looking for a reason now). Thanks Karen and Bernie!
