airbnb Mayer AZ

| 4 min read

Mayer is smack in the middle of Arizona. There is plenty to see and do here - the town is near Prescott, the late architect Paolo Soleri’s experimental desert community, Arcosanti, and the Bradshaw mountains. Harts of the West, which depicts ranching life in the Old West was filmed here and this is Mayer’s claim to fame. And, indeed it is here you can experience ranching life, albeit in an upscale fashion.

Try Mayer’s delicious food, with country favourites, such as chicken-fried steak or homemade strawberry jam. Or, take a hike or horseback ride into Big Bug Mesa’s Grapevine Canyon, near Mayer. The trailhead can be reached from a dirt road and you may also see waterfalls if you go in the autumn or spring seasons. Want a taste of the wild, wild west? Check out our list of Airbnb vacation rentals here, to start.
