Our 62 acre Ecoranch is located on the edge of the Tonto National Forest, in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, a mere 20 minutes from North Scottsdale. The spectacular views of the Four Peaks Wilderness set the scene for Western, Southwestern or Native American film production as the ranch is located in a rural and remote setting surrounded by majestic Saguaros, mountain views and dramatic vistas. We're committed to supporting a sustainable lifestyle and encourage "reduce, reuse and recycle" practices. From rainwater recapturing to composting in the garden, the ranch promotes a balanced and environmentally friendly environment. Our horse boarding facility includes 3 barns, an arena, turn-out, round pen and an 800 sq ft organic garden. We also offer a two-bedroom suite with a private pool, a bunkhouse and a luxury travel trailer, all of which are available separately. We have been recognized by MillionMile Magazine as one of the top 10 "Unbelievable Places to celebrate Airbnb's 10th Anniversary" and VRBO selected our ranch (one of 6 out of 3700 vacation rentals in Scottsdale) to film an upcoming social media promotion on YouTube. A documentary on indigenous foods and a Western TV series have also utilized the ranch for filming. Please note, price includes outdoor filming only, (62 acres with garden, barns, round pen, turnout and arena), all indoor spaces are additional.

Mitch C. booked a photoshoot for 3 people
We had an absolutely fantastic experience at Carmela's space. The ranch is only about an hour from downtown Phoenix, but feels like it's in the middle of nowhere (but I still had cell service!). The ranch had a variety of locations to shoot with everything from saguaros and desert landscapes to horses and old wagon wheels. Carmela and Joe could not have been more helpful and dedicated to making sure our photoshoot was successful. Overall this location made our shoot easy and beautiful. Would absolutely love to shoot here again! Thanks so much Carmela and Joe!
Angela S. booked a fashion photo shoot for 11 people
AMAZING! Carmela was a joy to work with, professional, timely and communicative. The property was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. As a producer in this business for many years, you do not get any better! Thank you Carmela and we will definitely be seeing you again!
Torin D. booked a music video shoot for 3 people
Carmela was an amazing host! She was so communicative and accomodating! Her property is SO BEAUTIFUL. Incredible views at all angles and there is so much land to shoot on! We picked two specific spots to do our music video and they were PERFECT. The property is a decent distance from any urban area and gave us the privacy that we wanted. I would definitely book this spot again if we needed any desert or ranch location.
