    he original brochure for the ranch started out by saying, “Who has not had the urge to visit a ranch in the old West where one can enjoy western life to his heart’s content; where the glorious beauty of the wilderness will bring health, happiness and peace; where fascinating desert scenes, the tang of the mountain air, the smell of the pines, and the spell of the starlit skies mean forgetfulness and freedom from the mad pace of modern life! El Rancho Robles, a glorified ranch in the most beautiful section of Arizona, will make these dreams come true for you.” – El Rancho Robles pamphlet, circa 1930
    Oracle Inn Steak House
    Made of adobe blocks, the Oracle Inn was built in 1938 by Boyd Wilson. It was used as an Inn for guests of the Rancho Linda Vista Dude Ranch. The core restaurant evolved over the years and at one time included a small golf course, roping arena and even a baseball diamond. Original parking is still available off of American Ave. A horse tie is located not far from where the original ones, once stood.

    In the 1990’s the town of Oracle, whose economy was largely driven from nearby mineral stakes took a severe hit, as many mining companies shut down. Many workers moved away to provide for their families and with far fewer hats to hang the Oracle Inn was shut down.

    The Darimont Family didn’t specialize in restaurants, but instantly fell in love with the buildings charm and took on the responsibilities of running the town of Oracle’s favorite food, drink and catering destination. Sitting unused for many years the décor has been largely preserved in it’s dormant state and still includes a great variety of art, mining artifacts, historic photos, Wild West memorabilia and a vast collection of beer steins.

    Operations have been passed down from Kari, Justin and Stephanie Darimont to younger brother Nick, who with his team of chefs grill masters, bar tenders and service staff, have established the Oracle Inn as the local watering hole of choice for steak lovers, German food fanatics and fans of all things spicy.

    A word from Kari, “We take pride in what we bring to the community and it shows in our in house smoked meats, hand cut steaks, south west style entrees, and family German recipes. Enjoy a variety of Jack Daniels themed cocktails in the adjoining JD’s sports bar and grill, catch a breeze or a sunset on the patio and know that you are part of classic Arizonian and American history.”

    Rammed Earth Solar Homes
    Rammed Earth Solar Homes Inc. is the true way to live....homes that keep themselves cool in the summer and warm in the winter. AZ Lic #064669
    ,br>Holistic Living ...sustainable building from the ground up "A WHOLISTIC BUILDER, that is what Quentin is!" said a recent attendee of one of the periodic Rammit Yourself workshops. And he is right.

    Thirty years ago as he was developing his technique for building with earth, Quentin earned his living as an organic farmer and a physics teacher. These three areas of expertise dovetail perfectly to make him the best source of advice for constructing, literally, from the ground up.

    If you visit the website you will see a series of pictures and information on the step by step process that Quentin is using as he builds his retirement home in Oracle Arizona. Starting with a half acre lot, he has already graded the land and built catchments for water collection. Water which is already in use through the use of a solar pumping system, to irrigate the newly planted orchard and vegetable garden.

    About Quentin
    Thirty years ago, with my 9-year-old son working by my side, I built my first direct gain, passive solar, rammed earth home. This is the primary and purist way to use rammed earth - simple, sturdy, environmentally sound and affordable. It remains my favorite, and out of this comes my desire to teach rammed earth construction to romantic do-it-yourselfers, and to build simple homes for those with affordability in mind.

    Over the years, I have also come to admire the use of rammed earth as an emerging art medium, filled with sculptural potential.

    The expanding expertise and professionalism of my crew members has allowed us to produce a wide variety of sculptural architecture, such as the massive Univision TV network complex in Phoenix, custom homes throughout the Southwest, zoo walls, churches and public art projects.

    These are often daring statements that introduce unique engineering challenges.
    With each job, I realize that the design and building capacity of rammed earth is apparently unlimited.
    It is always a pleasure to review architectural drawings to consult and ensure that they translate into beautiful, strong, rammed earth structures.

    Triangle L Ranch
    Enchanting 1880s Arizona Guest Ranch The Triangle L Guest Ranch is a magical property nestled among giant oaks and boulders in the high desert foothills of the Catalina Mountains. Set on fifty secluded acres, with lovely whitewashed adobe buildings dating from the 1880s, Triangle L Ranch offers comfortable accommodations, privacy, easygoing hospitality, and the charm of a historic ranch setting. Our abundant birds and wildlife, our cloudless, temperate days and star-filled night skies, make the Triangle L a carefree environment to relax, slow down, watch birds, walk the sculpture park trails or simply enjoy a peaceful retreat for individuals, couples, families, and friends. (Painting of the Triangle L Ranch circa 1932)

    Triangle L Ranch is a fascinating and enduring part of early Arizona history. Once inhabited by Apaches, in the 1880s the land was homesteaded as the “Boot Ranch,” named for its leather-making activities. The property was later purchased by the Ladd family of Boston and transformed into a cattle ranch. Among its early frequent visitors was Wild West showman “Buffalo Bill” Cody.

    The houses of the Triangle L Ranch have served as homestead, workers' quarters, and visitors’ accommodations for over a hundred years. Now carefully restored, these same cottages offer today’s guests the pleasures of desert living, along with privacy, quiet, and the ambiance of a simpler time in Arizona’s history. Each unique cottage is furnished with comfortable farmhouse antiques.

    Rates are for two people, with breakfast included.

    GLOW--Triangle L Ranch comes alive with glowing light during this multimedia art event coinciding with the full moon. GLOW celebrates the work of dozens of visual and performance artists. This much-anticipated regional event is held each fall.

    SCULPTURE PATH-- Winding through a portion of Ranch property is the Sculpture Path, an outdoor gallery displaying work by some of Southern Arizona's most prominent sculptors. Here in the high desert, these site-specific installations are a collaboration between art and nature.
