Original Ranch Headquarters Built in 1920
Gila, New Mexico, United States 88038
New Mexico Cabin Rentals has just added a master piece of old west history to our list of properties. Built in the very early 1900's and used as the original ranch headquarters "home place", The Old Ranch House has been completely, lovingly refurbished, upgraded and (just slightly) remodeled, while continuing to reflect the charm and character of early ranch living in New Mexico. Including the 16'x24' screened Veranda Porch, you'll have nearly 1400 square feet of living space to call 'home'.
New Mexica Cabin Rentals chose the historic old ranch headquarters as representation of authentic period Territorial style ranch homes. Its high ceilings in the living room/dining/bedrooms enhance your sense of natural light filled spaces, with turn a "turn of the century" atmosphere. Serve up your meals seated at a vintage oak dining table with seating for four. A 1940's era sideboard buffet with hand crochet lace edging provides extra storage as well as a large DVD Library.
An intimate living room area includes vintage wagon wheel sofa and matching rocker as well as a 4 foot tall "cowboy" floor lamp to welcome you home! Ok, he's not John Wayne, but he surely does light up a room! A 60" large flat screened HD TV, dvd player and large dvd library, Wi-Fi internet and voip telephone allow long distance calls at no charge. Cell service is not available, however you have a strong signal at the top of driveway near ranch sign. Please, remember you are visiting a very rural area where ranching, farming and a slower paced life is blissfully still found.
The large master bedroom has a gas fireplace, queen sized bed crowned with a magnificent hand carved headboard, a 1930's double door oak armoire imported from England, vintage, hand painted porcelain table lamps, refinished and well used original wood floors will take you back to a gentler time. Two well used antique oak sewing machines with delicate wood carved trim serve as night tables.
Separated from the living/dining room by curtained, double glass French doors for privacy, bedroom number two is a bit smaller with queen bed, rustic headboard, antique dresser and silvered mirror, private toilet with shower. Hanging on the wall you'll find some of the tools of the Cowboy...hand made leather chaps and silver spurs.
In your master bath, you will enjoy the luxury of a cast iron, claw foot bath tub, a beautifully hand crafted stained glass window, pedestal sink and 1940's hoosier cabinet as the center of focus. You will enjoy an oversized stall shower with a "rain water" shower head. Lots of natural light reflecting off the Italian stone flooring filling the room with soothing shades of beige. The vintage Hoosier cabinet with etched glass doors provides loads of space for toiletries, thick towels and more.
An oversized, leaded glass window placed in front of the kitchen sink offers a panoramic view of horse pastures along with magnificent sunset colors on Turtle Rock. Vintage cabinetry, custom shelving, large refrigerator/freezer, gas range, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker make it easy for you to feel right at home.
The Veranda, comfortable chairs, a vintage repurposed baby buggy side table...a perfect way to begin (and end!) your day.

We enjoyed our stay!
We enjoyed our stay in the Ranch house! It was especially nice to be able to see the horses right out the kitchen window and to be able to out and love them. Thanks for making accommodations for us this week.
We had a wonderful time! Thank you for everything!
