The silhouettes of cactuses and air-dried adobe houses as the sun sets over the desert, the twang of country music piercing the slatted doors of a saloon—there's something cinematic about Southern Arizona.

Set the scene for your own atmospheric getaway on a two-night stay for up to four guests in a two-bedroom villa, Sundays through Thursdays ($285) or Fridays and Saturdays ($325) at Rancho Mañana Resort, a sprawling and secluded retreat tucked away in the high-desert foothills of Cave Creek, Arizona.

Villas are appointed with elegant, Western-inspired décor—think king-size beds, fully equipped kitchens, whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, and private balconies or patios. Take in views of the Arizona landscape while sipping a glass of vino from your included bottle of wine.

After a dip in the hotel's palm-lined pool, soak in both the past and present with a visit to the curious streets of Cave Creek.

"This town tucked in the mountains of the northern Sonoran Desert is awash in incongruities," says The New York Times. "Cowboys in dusty chaps hitch their horses in front of saloons along the main drag and duck inside for a beer or bourbon. Nearby, tanned and stylishly dressed couples park their Porsches outside upscale galleries and head inside to haggle with owners over works by local artists like Sergio Ladron de Guevara."

Explore the town's vibrant collection of eclectic shops and art galleries, all while admiring the mauve backdrop of the Sonoran Desert. Later, grab a bite or tackle the bull at the Buffalo Chip Saloon & Steakhouse, featuring live boot-scootin' music and dancing every night of the week, real bull riding outside, and pecan-smoked baby-back ribs, among other real-deal barbecue platters.

Finish your day of discovery with a Southwestern-inspired cocktail and a late-night snack from Mañana's Tonto Bar and Grill, an area mainstay that prepares its dishes with desert-harvested ingredients. It's the perfect end to a perfectly Southwestern Escape.

  • "Staying at this desert resort gives us the opportunity to appreciate nature not only in the conservation areas, but also while driving in town and thru neighborhoods and right out our windows of the villa. The whole area is natural landscape."
