Price Canyon Ranch, Arizona

Located in the foothills of the Chiricahua Mountains deep in the middle of unpopulated part of Arizona is Price Canyon Ranch. It is a secret hideaway that offers perfect escape from hassled life of a big city. Price Canyon Ranch is so desolate, you can take your mind away from all troubles of the world and enjoy beautiful scenery of the Chiricahua unbothered.

A True Cowboy Ranch

Price Canyon Ranch is an actual ranch, not a tourist resort. It’s got the real feel of an unspoiled western life with nothing to distract you from it. The town of Tucson, Arizona, which is the largest big city and closest airport is almost three hours away. The town of Douglas is the nearest town and is about 45 minutes from the ranch. Gasoline is available there.

What all that would mean to you is that as a guest to the Price Canyon Ranch you can throw yourself out on the porch in the evening after a whole day of horse riding and enjoy your cigar in complete silence, with nothing but distant howl of a lonely coyote. No busy traffic, no noisy drunk punks screaming at each other just outside your window, no police sirens, no irritating garbage truck beeps as they’re backing in to pick up the trash. In Price Canyon Ranch, you’re safely away from it all. You’ll be entirely embalmed by the soothing sounds of nature.

Price Canyon Ranch Guest Rooms

Ten guest rooms of the Price Canyon Ranch are nicely decorated to resemble western style of life. They are cozy and elegant without being needlessly poshy. Which is a good thing. After all, as mentioned above, Price Canyon Ranch is an actual ranch, not a tourist resort. If you’re looking for spa treatment, yoga classes and Hawaiian themed parties by a large sparkling pool and skimpy dressed girls serving martinis, this would not be the place (Price Canyon Ranch does have an outdoor pool available for their guests, though so you can throw yourself in nice fresh water after a whole day of horse riding).

Price Canyon Ranch Lounge

The old barn next to the main building has been remodeled into a hang out lounge. It’s got nice stone fireplace and large bookshelf with western books. Comfortable leather couches make for a very relaxed seating. But the best part is the cooking of chef Fred Tullis. Being an artist (painter), Fred’s culinary art is, well… an art. The meals are generous, extremely delicious and true country like.

There is a TV and a telephone in the lodge – for those who absolutely need to keep up with what’s going on. Wi-Fi is also available for a guest who can’t afford to get out of touch.

Horse Riding at Price Canyon

Horse riding is what people of Price Canyon do as part of their every day life. As true westerners, they hop on a horse when managing cattle, when checking the fence, or just for that freeing feeling of riding in an unspoiled countryside.

As a visitor to the Price Canyon Ranch you should definitely go for a ride take it to the Ancient Apache caves. They are located deep in the canyons of the Chiricahua and are truly enchanting to visit.
