Description from owner

Come relax and enjoy the serenity and adventure that awaits you on the edge of the Sonoran Desert in the Tonto National Forest. Sits on 2 1/2 acres of pristine desert and takes advantage of 360 degree mountain views. Wake up with the desert and mountain views and experience beautiful sunrises from Master Bedroom or Living Room. Relax at the end of the day in front of a large flat screen HD TV in either Living Room or Master Bedroom.

Head into "town" and spend the afternoons shopping and dining in historical downtown Cave Creek, or if you prefer, relax poolside with your favorite book and a fresh brewed ice tea. Brilliant sunsets usher in serene beauty, the excitement of the desert wildlife, and the crackle of a cowboy campfire just waiting for stories and tall tales. We Will Be Waiting For Ya

Enjoy rustic shops and restaurants with an authentic old western theme. Hay rides, western cookouts, horseback riding or hiking are just a few of the many attractions offered here. Minutes away are the upscale towns of Carefree and Scottsdale which also boast some of the finest World Class Golf Courses.

“Relaxing charm”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2016

My husband and I stayed 4 days. The house was clean, comfortable and the pool was a nice added bonus in the Arizona heat. You'll need to provide your own condiments and extra toilet paper but bedding and bath towels were ample. The home is beautifully decorated and the lovely Sonoran desert surrounds you with deer, quail, Javelina and much more. It is quiet and peaceful but if you're looking for something to do it is 5 minutes into town for restaurants and shopping and half an hour from Bartlett Lake. I definitely recommend this property and would stay there again.

“Absolutely Serene/Beautiful”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2012

This property was perfect for my family. We enjoyed the privacy, serenity,location and especially the pool. The property is located far enough away from town, but yet close to a quaint cowboy town with lots of amenities. My family will be visiting again, and maybe more than once a year. This property is the perfect place for family vacations.

Owner's reply: Thank you Tyra, happy you enjoyed it. Your security deposit should reach you by Monday. Regards, Ken Arrick

What a lovely lovely home. Perfectly suited for my get a way needs. Private, well appointed and comfortable- a true gem that delivered a blissful 2 week stay. And having a pool available for those 100 plus degree days was very welcome!

Cave Creek is such a beautiful, scenic and western area; and, this property fits right into the atmosphere. We just completed our third year renting and plan on next year. The home is very comfortable and the owners are friendly and accommodating. Lots of privacy and tremendous desert views from the pool and patio area. You are within a good walk of many shops and restaurants.

Thanks for going out of your way to make our stay at Ridgeway Ranch so enjoyable. We felt that we experienced the "Real Arizona" in the heart of the Sonoran Desert living among the locals with their horses and corrals, lots of open space, so many varieties of cacti, watching the mountains turn red at sunset, watching jack rabbits, deer and coyotes (and hearing the coyotes and owls at night). Being so close to town was very convenient to the art and jewelry shows and great local eateries. Mike especially enjoyed YMCA exercise facility. The accommodations-modest looking from the outside-were fabulously renovated on the inside. There was every modern convenience and we were very comfortable. Joyce and Mike R-Maryland
