Aravaipa Farms Orchard and Inn
A MAGICAL, NATURE-LOVER’S HIDEAWAY IN THE UNSPOILED SONORAN DESERT
Treat yourself to an experience of a lifetime in the riparian wilderness of Aravaipa Canyon in Southern Arizona’s fertile San Pedro River Valley. We’re an easy drive from Tucson or Phoenix, yet a million miles away from it all. Whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway or relaxation in the great outdoors, you’ll be delighted you came.
Due to our intimate size, you’ll do best to plan ahead.
Full of color, charm, and warmth, every nook of this quaint country inn has been handcrafted using local timber, stone, adobe, flagstone, tin, and mosaic tile. Every room features an eclectic blend of furnishings, textiles, and artwork collected from near and far by Carol Steele and the new owners, Jill and Kevin Madden. All private accommodations come with coffee bar, refrigerator, fresh linens, and the ability to work in advance with our staff on menu selections.
For amateur and serious “birders” alike, Aravaipa is a birdwatchers’ paradise, earning the designation by the American Bird conservancy as the best birding in the country. You don’t even need to leave the comfort of your patio to observe a great variety of birds. Some local birders feel our farm and orchard has some of the best birding habitat in the canyon.
All private accommodations come with coffee bar, refrigerator, fresh linens and the ability to work in advance with our staff on menu selections. Families and groups have been enjoying coming to Aravaipa Farms for more than 20 years. We hope yours will, too.
