Historic Shankle Ranch

The Historic Shankle Ranch, including an airstrip and hanger for their Stearman J-5 and Lockheed Sirus, was built in 1930 by Dutch and Joan Shankle, both prominent national aviators who are recognized in the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame and at the Pima Air & Space Museum. While the airstrip, hanger, and planes are gone, what remains is a serene, beautiful, gated historic ranch home, with gorgeous views of Mt. Wrightston, hiking and birding along the Santa Cruz River, minutes from spas, golf, tennis, pickleball, art galleries, quaint shops, historical parks and museums, and the Historic Village of Tubac, Arizona "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, host a small event, or a quiet retreat. 


The Historic Shankle Ranch's pool and courtyard is the perfect, tranquil place to rejuvenate and take in the 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.
