Photos and Description of the Sierra Vista Southeast vacation cottage rental

1 bedroom guest cottage...30-acre horse-property with mountain views and jacuzzi

River Ridge Guest Ranch is located in Palominas, AZ just 90 miles southeast of Tucson nestled in the scenic San Pedro River Valley. The 30-acre property was purchased in 1996 and the main house was built from our own design with an emphasis on bringing the outdoors in. We incorporated the same design aesthetics when we built the guest cottage in 2004. And the ranch’s location with an elevation of 4200' makes for a moderate and pleasant climate all year 'round.

The handicapped-accessible, 1-bedroom custom, ranch-style guest cottage can accommodate virtually any sized group, in a non-smoking environment. You don’t even have to worry about the silverware or pots and pans, we’ve got you covered! The cottage features a fully equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and gas range….along with a well-stocked storage pantry. The great room features a cozy wood-burning stove for your enjoyment. The spacious bedroom offers southwest decor and a Queen-sized bed…. and a full-sized sleeper sofa is ready for your tag-a-longs. The bathroom has a wheel-chair accessible shower, and full laundry facilities are available for your use. For your convenience we provide you with laundry detergent, iron and board, a hair dryer and small personal items i.e. shampoos, lotions, toothbrushes, razors and sunscreen.

RRGR is on 30 acres and is set up for you to bring your horses...plenty of maneuvering room for oversized rigs. Whether you are just passing through and need an over-night spot to turn your critters out, or want an extended stay to get away from the heat or the cold, this is the place for you. The barn has two stalls with 30'X50' exterior attached pens and a 20-acre pasture for a round pen. Ride on the National Riparian Area just out 'the backdoor' of the cottage or trailer a short distance to the Huachuca Mountains and explore miles of trails. The guest ranch is adjacent to the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area which is home to hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles and butterflies. Within walking distance is the Lehner's Prehistoric Mammoth Kill Site.

Your cozy getaway is also near Ramsey Canyon Preserve (the hummingbird capital of the west), the old mining town of Bisbee, and Tombstone, the “town too tough to die”. We are near Fort Huachuca with its Historical Museum, Kartchner Caverns, and the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson. Tom is a docent at the Air Museum and can take you on a guided walking tour.

Outside, relax in the jacuzzi with a glass of wine or iced tea while you take in the unobstructed view of the valley and the emerald green cottonwood trees lining the river. You will enjoy the entertaining antics of the hummers at their feeders. Follow along with our numerous local and visiting avian friends stopping by for a snack, along with numerous members of the mammal and reptilian families. Also, you’ll appreciate the carport and the covered, wrap-around porch. The bunkhouse (camper/trailer) is also available for additional family/guests. And, there is ample room for any size RV….electric and water hookups are available...... (free dump stations in Sierra Vista). Marvel at our authentic, 1890's sheepherder's wagon which sleeps 2 on a full-sized bed...nestled near the campfire area. Or slumber away atop cots on the porch, or try sleeping under the starry western sky around the campfire.

A petting zoo is available for your family's enjoyment. Cuddle with the bunnies and romp with our two dwarf goats, Wilbur and Orville Wright (the WOW brothers!). Chickens, dogs, horses and turtles await your attentive faces. Enjoy a hayride or take a little excursion on the 1952 Ford 8N farm tractor. Walk, jog, bike or ride the golf cart on the .7 mile groomed track around the pasture. Like to try kayaking? We will gladly tote you up to Parker Lake in the Huachuca Mountains where you can also hike, fish, paddle boat, picnic, birdwatch....or to Patagonia Lake where in addition you can waterski and jetski.......leased pets are welcome.

Old western history abounds around your guest cottage in Cochise County....Apache Territory, home to Cochise and Geronimo. Come on by.....stay awhile.

What we offer is a little different from most vacation rentals. While privacy and solitude are part of your retreat, you have the peace of mind knowing that we are just a stone’s throw away. On your first day we will provide lots of starters—fresh quiche, fresh fruit, fresh free-range eggs and an array of pantry items. Pick your own produce from the organic garden planted in a raised bed made from an antique cattle feeder. For the rest of your stay, you can enjoy a visit to our local grocery stores and farmers’ markets. In essence, this is a place you can make your own—a private, quiet and relaxing getaway just for you and your guests.
