About Janna

Janna and her husband have been working on this ranch for over forty years and it has been in the family since 1879.

Why Janna chose Arizona

The property has been in the family for several generations. The studio apartment was built originally as a salt house, but it was later decided to be used as a guest house or 'Little House' as we call it. We want to continue that tradition and give travelers an inside look into the lifestyle.

What makes this studio unique

The views from the porch are breathtaking. The abundant wildlife and birds give you a unique opportunity to enjoy nature. The dark nights provide an excellent opportunity to view the night skies. The hiking and biking possibilities are endless.

Very nice stay!!

Cozy, comfortable and convenient to the Chiricahuas

  • 5 of 5

Small guesthouse has everything you need to escape from the busyness of everyday. Close to the Chiricahua National Monument so after hiking all day you can sit on the porch and watch the sunset, bird watch, rock and enjoy a book. Beds are comfortable, kitchen well stocked with pots and pans, and hosts are friendly and helpful. This is our second visit and we plan to go back soon.

Cozy place, friendly family

  • 5 of 5

My best friend, sister, and I spent three nights here, hiking in the Chirichaua Mouintains, right next door, during the day. Three generations of family share this place, and they were all so warm, welcoming and helpful. The studio itself is very nice, with comfy beds, and a very nice kitchen and bath, all clean and well appointed. The fresh farm eggs were an extra treat. And the birds! So many varieties of birds, including very colorful ones. I highly recommend this property to birders, and anyone who wants to spend time exploring the Chirichaua's.

Beautiful and perfect place for anyone

  • 5 of 5

Janna and Jim made us feel at home and shared their knowledge of the area freely. This hacienda was perfectly clean and completely stocked with everything we needed. Try it out. I promise you will love it

This studio guesthouse is a treasure. It is organized and stocked with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Living on the ranch in this cozy and spotlessly clean guesthouse was an adventure from start to finish. Jim and Janna are the perfect hosts, greeting us with fresh eggs from the nearby henhouse and flowers from the garden. The ranch is located about a mile from the incredibly beautiful Chiricahua National Monument, but you can have an enjoyable time watching the Vermillion Flycatcher, Acorn Woodpeckers, Red tail Hawks, Gambel's Quail, and many other birds from the front porch, or exploring the beautiful ranch land near the house. Jim and Janna and their children and grandchildren will share their ranch life and history of the area with you if you're interested. We learned so much about this area while staying here.

I can't say enough about this peaceful retreat. We will certainly choose to stay here when next we venture west!

Lovely ranch next to national monument

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic time staying at this place. The guest home is very comfortable and goes beyond the usual trappings and furnishings (books, cheese grater, sewing kit). The beds are comfortable and the grounds are quiet. There is unparalleled nature to explore on the property (a rambling ranch with cows, chickens, and bats) and just next door in the Chiricahua National Monument. The owners are very nice and have lots of stories to tell about settling the area in the late 1800s. You will not regret staying here. We can't wait to get back!
