The 140-acre ranch is located at the southernmost point of the Rocky Mountains, 40 minutes east of Albuquerque and an hour south of Santa Fe. The two-story guest house is nestled on a juniper and pine tree ridge overlooking the valley below. Decorated in a rustic and eclectic southwest style, the guesthouse offers three bedrooms, two and a quarter bath, a shared kitchen, and a common room filled with books and games.

The guesthouse is environmentally conscious, designed with composting toilets, greywater systems, and re-purposed furnishings. Free Wi-Fi and access to laundry service are offered. The ranch is landscaped for relaxation. Wooded paths lead to reading nooks, hammocks for naps, meditation alcoves, and quiet spaces for yoga. The hot tub is available year-round and the pool is open during the summer. The property is teeming with vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and berry bushes just ripe for the picking. Bicycles are available for further exploration.
