Dreamers could satisfy their cowboy fantasies and get a generous taste of Arizona hospitality at El Rancho Robles. The warm weather and year-round sunshine contributed greatly to El Rancho Robles’ popularity with travelers from around the world, as well as the eastern US. Adding to its appeal was the fact that El Rancho Robles emphasized true relaxation rather than the vigorous cowboy-oriented activities advertised by the more remote ranches of Wyoming and Montana.

The original brochure for the ranch started out by saying, “Who has not had the urge to visit a ranch in the old West where one can enjoy western life to his heart’s content; where the glorious beauty of the wilderness will bring health, happiness and peace; where fascinating desert scenes, the tang of the mountain air, the smell of the pines, and the spell of the starlit skies mean forgetfulness and freedom from the mad pace of modern life! El Rancho Robles, a glorified ranch in the most beautiful section of Arizona, will make these dreams come true for you.” (Original El Rancho Robles guest pamphlet, circa 1930)
Later in the century, the property was converted to a multitude of long-term rental units. El Rancho Robles remained a rental property until 2012, when it was discovered as a diamond in the rough by a New Yorker with experience in restoring historical properties to their former glory. Reopened as a guest ranch and retreat center in October of 2012, the property continues to create a magical experience for guests by providing a true guest ranch experience in a glorious setting as was intended by the original founders of El Rancho Robles.
