Since 1945, when the Miller family ventured south from Montana to establish a winter dude ranch, guests of all ages have enjoyed the perfect winter climate of southern Arizona where the sun seeps into the very marrow of your bones. Charley and Mary Miller and Tom and Anne Miller, the third generation of the Miller family, live and work at Elkhorn year round and enjoy the friendship of many returning guests and crew. Charley and Mary’s daughter Clara works full time at the barn guiding and Alicia helps out during college school holidays. Together with the ranch crew, they provide the care you need to enjoy rest, quiet and stimulating activity and adventure around the ranch and on miles of mountain and desert trails. You will find a friendly welcome at Elkhorn Ranch. Abundant wildlife and curious Sonoran desert vegetation will greet you each day.

The Millers carry on the old-time dude ranch tradition of welcoming friends to their home every winter and spring.
