    Open Now for Stays of 1 Week & Longer!

    To experience the wild wonder of Northern New Mexico you have to get out in the country. For many, that means a morning hike, or a day trip into forests and canyons. Few find a way to linger longer at the edge of wilderness. Until now. We’ve opened the heart of our family-owned ranch as an invitation to you: Come experience this extraordinary corner of the Southwest, and stay a while. (Note: For the first time it’s now possible to come with your dog. For full details read up on our revised policies.)

    Give yourself the gift of time on the land. After the year we’ve had, it can only be good. Our hills, river and valley, surrounded by public lands, are yours to explore. Drink in the long desert views. Float in timeless waters. Follow the trails of deer and elk. Slow down. At the end of a perfect day, your casita is a cool haven of comfort and serenity. Welcome to your private New Mexico. Let the adventure be yours.
