We're an Equestrian EcoRanch, committed to sustainability - reduce, reuse, recycle, repurpose! Learn more about this land: LUX Magazine awarded us the "Most Serene Desert Accommodations and Horse Boarding Facility Southwest USA" in 2020 and 2023. Million Mile Magazine named Rio Rancho Verde as one of the top 10 locations to celebrate the top short term rental platform's 10th Anniversary.  We were also selected by the other top short term rental platform (one of 5 out of 3500 vacation rentals in Scottsdale) for a social media presentation and a cooking series was filmed at our outdoor kitchen.  This 62 acre exclusive equestrian eco-ranch is located on the border of the Tonto National Forest, and is 3/4 mile from the Scottsdale Sonoran Preserve, yet only 20 minutes from North Scottsdale. We offer boarding for your horse and packages include either a hookup for your trailer, a luxury 2 bedroom suite with pool and outdoor kitchen, a brand new 36' travel trailer with 3 slide outs, fireplace, queen size bed, full kitchen and big screen TV, or a Western chic casita/bunkhouse that has been interior decorated with Southwestern and Western accents, complete with a private courtyard.   There's plenty of wide open spaces to ride your horse, bike or hike on the many trails right outside our gate. Or, simply stroll down to the barn and enjoy your morning coffee while the horses finish their breakfast. We're big on sustainability, so we reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose. We have an organic garden on site and you're free to help yourself to seasonal veggies. There's something for everyone at Rio Rancho Verde.  SORRY, WE DO NOT ALLOW TENT OR RV CAMPING UNLESS YOU ARE BOARDING YOUR HORSE(S) WITH US.
