In the late seventeenth century, the
fertile Altar valley was settled by Spanish Jesuits. Father Eusebio
Francisco Kino and his followers, built a mission outpost on the
Ranch. Still standing, this rare historic adobe structure is reputed
to be the second oldest building in Arizona. Today it serves as a
peaceful gathering place for our guests to mingle and relax.
Rancho de la Osa, or Ranch of the
"She Bear," is one of the last great Spanish Haciendas still
standing in America. During the Mexican Revolution, Pancho Villa was
said to have fired shots at the Hacienda. When you stay with us, you
can hold a Mexican cannonball found in the stucco walls of the
Hacienda dining room.
the sun shines more than 300 days a year. At night, in our Zocalo, the
stars twinkle and shine with unmatched clarity from a coal black sky.
Located in the high Sonoran Desert along the Mexican border, we are
one hour from Tucson. We border the Buenos Aires National Wildlife
refuge, where you can watch deer and antelope still roaming in herds.
Nestled among huge eucalyptus trees,
the gracious lifestyle of the Old Southwest is captured and treasured
in the 1800's Hacienda. This elegant building welcomes each guest with
a warm and inviting ambience. Furnished with Mexican antiques the
Hacienda is a gentle reminder of the fascinating history of this
magnificent old Spanish land grant.
