Plan your hiking or bird watching vacation from our newly renovated New Mexico Heritage Ranch Headquarters at New Mexico Cabin Rentals! We have just added a master piece of old west ranch history to our list of New Mexico Cabin Rentals vacation properties. Adjacent to the Gila National Forest with additional private access to 6500 acres of public lands, you will find unlimited hiking, bird watching, dark skies, wildlife, nature. Our vacation cabin rental was built in the early 1900's and used as the original ranch headquarters "home place" near the Gila National Forest and Gila River Riparian area, this 2 bedroom guesthouse has been completely, lovingly refurbished, upgraded and (just slightly) and remodeled, while continuing to reflect the charm and character of early ranch living in southwest 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 heritage 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. It is the perfect location if you want to experience vintage ranch life in southwest New Mexico.
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 if your cell phone is wi-fi compatible. 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 magnificently hand crafted headboard, a 1930's double door oak armoire imported from England, vintage, hand painted porcelain table lamps. The 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 glass double French doors for curtained 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 plenty of plenty of hot water to soak in 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'll find 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 your 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 offers comfortable chairs, a vintage repurposed baby buggy side table and oil lantern...a perfect way to begin (or end!) your day.

Just What We Needed!
This was the perfect place for us to unwind, disconnect and enjoy each other's company. The scenery was amazing and the Ranch House was the coolest for our after Christmas get away. Seeing and hearing the horses and the wide variety of birds was an added delight to our days. All of the staff/hosts were exceptional! We will be back!
Peaceful and quiet. A great place to relax. Lots of great day trip options. Comfortable. Great screened porch where you can sit and watch the horses.”“This was the highlight of our vacation. We didn't want to leave. I hope we have the opportunity to return someday. First class place. Thanks for letting us stay.”
This Place is Amazing!
This place is amazing - the hosts are gracious, kind, and have set up a special place to unwind! I could totally seeing myself bringing a pile of books a mile high, my hiking boots, some great wine and escaping by here for a month! we feel the slow pace helped us live more life during each of our days here...
We had a wonderful time! Thank you for everything!
It was sincerely our pleasure hosting you and your family over the holiday weekend!

Rustic and Tranquil
Debbie and her family went out of their way to accommodate the needs of our family, including our dog. Loved the quiet and tranquility of this remote setting. Our dog loved his walks around the ranch (and so did we). The ranch house is both rustic and comfortable. Thanks for everything! We had a wonderful stay at the ranch house. Loved the tranquility and beauty of the Double E Ranch. Thank you for accommodating our family's needs.
We Loved It!
Hi Debbie,Carla and I would like to thank you for steering us into the old ranch house for our stay there, and for giving us such a good rate.The house was great, better than expected. Carla wants me to especially thank you for having a comforter for the bed. The bathroom is really nice and Carla enjoyed the tub. The kitchen was perfect; we had everything we needed except ice trays.We really enjoyed the screened porch and simply relaxing and viewing the horses and mountains. The best part of all is that we were able to have our beloved dog Bugsy with us. The road between headquarters and Turtleback was beautiful, and we walked it and explored at least twice everyday. You really have a wonderful property and we are so glad that we were privileged to experience it for a few days.We would love to visit again, although my work schedule will severely limit our ability to do so.Thank you again for this visit.Sincerely,Fritz and Carla
Hi Fritz and Carla, It was our pleasure hosting you both and Bugsy. I sincerely appreciate your willingness to be so flexible and hope we see you all again, one day. Best regards, Debbie
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.
