White Stallion Ranch
White Stallion Ranch is an all-inclusive dude ranch that mixes an Old West adventure with modern creature comforts. Originally dating back to 1900 as a squatter’s cattle ranch, it was officially homesteaded in 1936 and became a dude ranch in the early 1940s. Allen and Cynthia True purchased the property in 1965, when it was one of 26 dude ranches in the Tucson area. Today it is only one of two dude ranches remaining, and this third generation family business recently celebrated its 50th year anniversary.
The incomparable and extensive horse riding program at White Stallion provides a rich and authentic frontier experience for all age groups. The ranch owns one of the largest private herds of horses in Arizona, with over 165 horses on property at any one time. Other activities available on the ranch include hiking, rock climbing, tennis, basketball, and plenty of children’s activities and entertainment.
Many of the ranch buildings were built between 1900 and 1940 with newer facilities added throughout the years, such as a heated outdoor pool, sunken tennis courts, and 24-hour fitness center. The recently renovated guestrooms feature charming, rustic Southwestern décor coupled with comfortable and convenient amenities, featuring beautiful travertine tile, granite counter tops, pillow-top mattresses, air-conditioning, iHome, and WiFi. In an effort to help guests reconnect with nature, guestsrooms are not equipped with televisions.
The dedicated staff at White Stallion provides personal and outstanding Tucson hospitality, creating a memorable vacation for all. The ranch has welcomed and entertained numerous guests throughout the years, attracting celebrities like George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Charlton Heston, James Garner, and Lindsay Wagner - who even gifted the ranch a horse! The ranch is rated the number one hotel in Tucson on TripAdvisor for the past five consecutive years, and achieved 19th in the country for customer service in 2014.
Reconnect with nature, family, friends, and serenity at White Stallion Ranch. Ride through unspoiled desert, past rugged mountains and cactus, and discover why Hollywood has been drawn to this ranch for over 70 years.
George Clooney filmed and stayed at the White Stallion Ranch for his feature film directorial debut, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
