The Magical Spirit of a Legendary Ranch

Historic Rex Ranch, just south of Tucson, Arizona, was built before the Gadsden Purchase of 1848, in the style unique to this area. Thick, natural adobe walls—some over 170 years old—form both the natural insulation and the spiritual core of this storied property. The ranch takes its name from Rex Hammier, a Texan who bought it in the 1930s and developed the 50-acre ranch into a gracious, hacienda-style compound with courtyards and fountains.

And although the history and architecture of the ranch are unique, we love its spiritual energy. We bought it in 2017 to reimagine it as a wellness-focused petite resort. Sitting at the edge of the Coronado National Forest in the foothills of the Santa Rita Mountains, surrounded by mesquite trees on this magical piece of history, there's no better place to connect with the land and your own spirit.

We're renewing and reimagining Rex Ranch, and look forward to welcoming you in 2022.
