Because the Village of Gila does not have a convenient grocery store nearby, we recommend guests bring all preferred and essential food items for meals. We provide bbq grill, charcoal, lighter fluid, coffee, tea, sugar, gourmet spices, condiments. Toilet paper, paper towels, some cleaning supplies are also provided for short stay guests. The cabin is cozy and comfortable with all the amenities necessary for uninterrupted peace. Perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. We welcome pets, but please check with Debbie. The creek is a short walk from your cabin, you can see the cottonwood trees from your deck. Enjoy the walk through our privately protected riparian area where you'll see hundreds of native and migratory birds, plenty of wildlife such as deer and wild turkey. Also, deer, brown bear, and Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep will often be seen. At night you'll see the Milky Way spread across a clear, dark New Mexico sky! Debbie or Alan encourage "self check in". Because we may be away from the office or traveling when you arrive, there are signs directing you to your cabin. However, prior to your visit we provide you with specific directions to the ranch, the door will be unlocked, a light outside and inside will be left on, the key and general information will be on the dining table, and will include telephone numbers for us and our son Christopher who is nearby should you have any immediate problems that cannot wait. It is likely you will see Alan working one of the many horses at the ranch. His passion is training well bred quarter horses for such disciplines as cattle work, reined cow horse and cowboy mounted shooting. As an expert horseman, he has a wealth of information, tips and techniques and he is always willing to answer questions. We are rebuilding corrals with the traditional use of Juniper “pickets” (fence posts) which can last for hundreds of years. We are refurbishing/remodeling several ranch houses that have been in constant use for over 130 years! We're making every effort to stay true to the historic 'feel' of a southwestern New Mexico ranch and hope to open these houses to guests, shortly. Occasionally, there may be noise from a tractor, the feed wagon and sometimes you'll hear Alan fine tuning a horse in training for Cowboy Mounted Shooting. No worries - no live ammo is used. The Village of Gila and the nearby town of Cliff are still very rural and were settled in 1884.
