Away from it all
Aravaipa Farms Orchard and Inn
A MAGICAL, NATURE-LOVER’S HIDEAWAY IN THE UNSPOILED SONORAN DESERT
Due to COVID-19, we are taking reservations for the inn on a limited basis but we are not currently serving food. Our casitas naturally allow social distancing while staying in touch with nature.
We are blocking at least 3 days in between each reservation to allow for safe and adequate cleaning. We have removed all decorative pillows and are paying extra attention to disinfect high-touch areas such as door handles, appliances, etc. Our cleaning protocols have always been held to a high standard, including cleaning all bedding, linens and surfaces.
We are planning to begin serving food again soon. We are working through the details to ensure we are fully prepared for a new way of serving. For the time being, all guests should plan to bring their own food and cook for themselves in their casita. Each casita is equipped with a kitchenette. The Farmhouse, Treehouse Casita and Airstream all have a full kitchen.
We are happy to address any concerns about visiting us this summer. Please call us to talk through any questions.
