|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Enjoy a place to stay while visiting the beautiful Chiricahua Mountains. A room for rent on a working cattle ranch near the Chiricahua National Monument and Pinery Canyon of the Coronado National Forest both noted for their excellent birding, wildlife and hiking opportunities--a photographers paradise.
Relax with our majestic sunsets, dark nights and our peaceful, quiet country atmosphere from the comfort of our accommodations where day trips to Ft. Bowie National Monument, Bisbee, Douglas, Tombstone, Portal and Willcox are easily accessible. The Willcox area is also becoming a winery destination with 13 tasting rooms in the vicinity.
Available for your comfort: 2 queen beds, pull out couch, central air and heat, wifi, kitchenette. However, there is no TV and only emergency phone service available via the neighboring house. Cell phone service is very limited.
** This is a working ranch and the studio is connected to a shop area. We will do everything to keep our noise down during your stay.
Janna and her husband have been working on this ranch for over forty years and it has been in the family since 1879.
The property has been in the family for several generations. The studio apartment was built originally as a salt house, but it was later decided to be used as a guest house or 'Little House' as we call it. We want to continue that tradition and give travelers an inside look into the lifestyle.
The views from the porch are breathtaking. The abundant wildlife and birds give you a unique opportunity to enjoy nature. The dark nights provide an excellent opportunity to view the night skies. The hiking and biking possibilities are endless.
Our stay at the Crossed J Ranch was truly an outstanding and unique experience. We felt right at home on this working ranch and very comfortable with our family of 5 (three small children). Lots of room for the kids to play. Just the right amount of space inside. Of course, the property backing up to the mountains and in such close proximity to the park entrance added a unique element of serenity and adventure. The hosts were incredible, gracious, and accommodating. We highly recommend this site to anyone looking to spend time in Chiricahua or SE Arizona.
We had a great two night stay - highly recommend!! The cabin was clean, well appointed and very comfortable with some wonderful personal touches like specialty local sundries and snacks. Also, the beds were super comfy with great sheets/bedding - even the fold out couch got high marks from my daughter who is usually picky about such things. Jim and Janna (the owners) were very friendly and helpful and we loved interacting with their friendly dogs and chickens as we came and went! Great proximity to Chiricahua National Monument - highly recommend the Echo Canyon Trail - such amazing rock formations!
What a wonderful little gem tucked at the base of the mountains. Cows and chickens awaited us and our kids couldn't have been more thrilled! Then when they saw a playset and learned that three young kids lived in the neighboring ranch, they were over the moon! I highly recommend making the trip to see this beautiful setting. You're just a short trip to Tombstone, or to Apple Annie's Orchards for a fun family day! The owners were so hospitable and even shared the farm fresh eggs from their chickens! We will be back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the little studio on the Crossed J Ranch! Our accommodation was beyond expectation and we immediately began talking about our next trip to stay there. Plenty of storage space (the many closet hooks were much appreciated), everything neatly labeled so you don't have to open every cabinet door or drawer to find a specific item, and plenty of seating. The bed was super comfortable too.
The views outside the studio made us want to get out and explore. We did a hike and some sightseeing in nearby Chiricahua National Monument. We didn't have a ton of time to sit and enjoy the patio, but hope to in our future trip!
What made this getaway even more special was the hospitality of the Riggs family and the remote, yet comfortable location. It's nice to spend a few days away from the mundane aspects of our life and experience something new.
A warm welcome from the family and their two sweet docile dogs upon our very late arrival. Lovely, clean studio. Quirky & quaint. Felt like home. Easy parking. Books, snacks, soaps...so thoughtful! Kitchen too cute for words. Pots, pans, cups, etc...all you need. Hilarious bathroom wallpaper. Soooooo close to Chiricahua, a Nat'l Park well worth visiting! Amazing hikes! Fill your gas tank & stock up on groceries before you head out, though, because this place is very remote. Thank you very much for letting us stay in your studio! My family will never forget the wonderful experience!
One of the best VRBO experiences we have had. Our family usually stays in VRBOs as we travel the regions in search of all the National Park Service sites. This location naturally fit that bill, situated less than 2 miles from the Chiricahua NM and less than 20 miles from Fort Bowie NHS.
The Ranch was super remote yet super available. We spoke with all the family members, who were more than willing to help with anything we needed. They offered advice on our trip, spoke to us about the area, and made sure we were welcomed to our home to the weekend.
I won't speak much about the room other than this: why would you stay in a hotel when places like this exist? Very well stocked, super clean, A/C and Heat (45 degrees in the morning, 85 in the day), and fast internet. It was really like being home in the middle of nowhere.
Places like this make visiting our National Park Sites possible. If we ever come back to SE Arizona, we will be back here for sure, I would come out of my way to stay here again.
Thanks for the experience,
Paul and Lauren
