About this listing
The Stable Rooms at the Oak Bar Ranch provide a wonderful get away in the rolling hills of Arizona’s Mountain Empire
The Oak Bar Ranch was constructed in the 1930s and is an oasis located in a private valley just outside of Patagonia Arizona. Our 640 acres offer miles of on-site hiking trails, world class birding, and available guided horseback tours in the adjoining Coronado National Forest.
“The Lodge Room”
Old West luxury in a large one room suite, offering a king sized bed and beautiful stone fireplace surrounded by vintage leather furniture.
Originally intended to be the Cowboy’s day room, this room was constructed along with the stables in 1936 and played host to Gregory Peck during the filming of “David and Bathsheba” in 1951.
The room has been completely redone and features a Dutch door that opens on to a semi-private patio with amazing mountain views.
“The Cowboy Kitchen”
Just down a cover stone walkway from the room is a vintage 1950’s kitchen that is communally available to all guests. It is appointed with basic kitchen tools, cookware, stove, oven and refrigerator.
You will find farm fresh eggs, home baked bread and cupboards stocked with basic sundries (flour, sugar, coffee, tea and spices etc.) for your use.
Interaction with guests
My wife and I live just down the way from the Stable Rooms and are available with any local info or help that you might need.
Additionally, Annie and Odessa are the dog ambassadors of the Oak Bar and if you'd like they will be happy to be adopted by you for your stay.
Other things to note
All lodging includes a continental breakfast served daily in the “Cowboy Kitchen” between 6am and 9am. This breakfast always includes fresh fruit & yogurt, and features a rotating selection of homemade breads, biscuits and other baked goods.
The 640 acres of the Oak Bar offers 3 miles of hiking trails. If you need more than 3 miles, one of our trails leads directly to a gate that will take you out to the Coronado National Forest.
Patagonia and Sonoita Creek are world renowned birding spots and with the Oak Bars close proximity to those two spots we attract an amazing array of migratory birds right to our own trees and canyons.
However if you would like to get away for a guided bird watching hike we are happy to make arrangements for you with a local guide. (fee)
Guided horseback rides are available here at the ranch, out to the National Forest or even in the San Raphael Valley.
Lead by Arizona Trails, a company with over 20 years of trail riding experience here in Santa Cruz County, this is the perfect way to see the rolling canyons that make up the foothills of the Patagonia Mountains. (fee)
