Rancho De La Osa is one of the last great Spanish haciendas in America. This piece of history entertains nine buildings, two houses, two dining rooms, an infamous cantina, 33 fireplaces, and 19 guest rooms that have hosted several celebrities such as John Wayne and President Lyndon B. Johnson. The guest ranch also provides tranquil activities such as horseback riding, guided hikes, nature walks and bird watching.

“There are only a few signature properties in the entire state of Arizona and given its history and immaculate preservation, the Rancho De La Osa is one to be cherished,” said Gary Brasher, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Reality listing agent. “It is our hope to find another steward of this precious asset of our state so the Rancho De La Osa can be preserved for generations to come.”

Among the unique features of Rancho De La Osa, the guest ranch also radiates history. Originally built by Jesuit priests to continue missionary work for Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, the building was used for more than a century as an outpost to trade with local Indians and Mexicans.  The guest ranch was fired on by Pancho Villa during the Mexican Revolution, and his indent on the walls were implanted into the main house décor. Rancho De La Osa first opened as a guest ranch in 1924, and still continues its spirit and tradition today, 90 years later.
