Historic Shankle Ranch

The Historic Shankle Ranch, originally established in 1930 by Dutch and Joan Shankle, renowned aviators honored in the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame and the Pima Air & Space Museum, boasted an airstrip and hangar for their Stearman J-5 and Lockheed Sirus aircraft. While the airstrip, hangar, and planes have since vanished, what endures is an enchanting, gated historic ranch house offering stunning vistas of Mt. Wrightston. It provides opportunities for hiking and bird-watching along the Santa Cruz River and is just moments away from spas, golf courses, tennis courts, pickleball facilities, art galleries, charming boutiques, historical parks, museums, and the historic village of Tubac, Arizona, known as "Where Art and History Meet".

The beautifully decorated 7-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom ranch house, that can sleep up to 16 adults, has plenty of room to accommodate a family reunion or host a quiet retreat. 


The Historic Shankle Ranch's pool and courtyard is the perfect, tranquil place to rejuvenate and take in the sunrise and sunset views against Mt. Wrightston. 


The ranch offers several places to curl up with your favorite book by one of our 4 fireplaces, or enjoy the company of family and friends in the large living room, Arizona room, downstairs family room, or at any of the patios and outdoor spaces that surround the ranch house.
