Description

Perfect for long or short term vacation, with excellent bird watching, hiking, and star gazing opportunities - or, bring your own horse and ride! Consider spending a weekend or a week in a true New Mexico ranch bunkhouse Cottage. Near the Gila National Forest, Wilderness Area and Gila River the "Rio Lobo" Cottage is a gently upgraded vintage 1940's cowboy bunkhouse making it easy for you to explore all that southwest New Mexico has to offer from the comfort of this fully furnished, original ranch bunkhouse. This historic cabin is situated at the headquarters of the Double E Ranch in a surprising hidden valley just a few miles from the Village of Gila NM. Adjacent to nearly 3 million acres of public lands, you are invited to take a peak at what early ranching life was like in the rural southwest, Grant County New Mexico. Comfortably furnished and complete with its own full sized washer/dryer, you'll have all the comforts of home.

The Rio Lobo Cottage is the original bunkhouse used by those cowboys who worked this 130 year old historic southwestern ranch. At nearly 5,000 feet elevation, this lovingly restored, cozy, 1-bedroom "Rio Lobo" Cottage offers milder weather in every season, 300 days of New Mexico sunshine and clear, dark New Mexico skies made for star gazing.

Centrally located at New Mexico Cabin Rentals, the Rio Lobo Cottage is a 950 square foot rental with plenty of 'old west' feel. Perfect for savoring your first cup of coffee in the morning, reading a book while enjoying the afternoon breeze, or relaxing with a refreshing beverage after a day of exploring.

If you listen carefully, you may still hear the "ca-chink, ca-chink" of well-used spurs and boots that once walked these same hardwood floors. The Rio Lobo Cottage offers lots of living space so it really lends itself to an extended vacation. The kitchen features full-sized appliances, including a dishwasher, and an adjacent dining area, so you can cook-in as much as you’d like, saving you the hassle and expense of dining out. The completely remodeled bathroom comes with large bathtub/shower, and a conveniently located private washer/dryer. Pack as light as you want – you won’t run out of clean clothes!

Decorated with vintage Western Cowboy art and framed Western romance paperbacks from 1920 through 1950s, including those of Louis L’Amour and Max Brand. Meticulously handcrafted 70 year old maple hutch, coffee and tables, the spacious living room is reminiscent of times gone-by. But don’t let the nostalgia fool you; when you aren’t exploring New Mexico Cabin Rentals’ 360 acres of unspoiled nature, or expanding your day trips to include Silver City or beyond, you will still find time to relax, decompress and feel the quiet.

The "Rio Lobo" Cottage bedroom is furnished with handcrafted, maple dresser and headboard. Whether you’ve spent the day hiking, birding, reading, or riding, you’ll find sleep comes easily as you are lulled by the quiet sounds of the high desert nights, snuggled beneath luxurious cotton sheets on your queen sized bed.

The "Rio Lobo" Cottage is ideal for all seasons, with air conditioning and gas heat fireplace. FYI, because of our remote location, you may not have cell service at your cabin. If your cell carrier is Verizon, and your phone wi-fi capable, you will be able to make cell phone calls using wi-fi.

The Rio Lobo is the original old bunkhouse and is located near the paddocks of the Double E Ranch so you’ll often find horses grazing and playing in your backyard. The cowboys who once made Rio Lobo their home didn't have far to walk to lasso their horses for the days' ride. If you venture out a little further, you’ll be amazed by the scenery and the wildlife. Jackrabbits, havelinas, roadrunners and hundreds of native and migratory birds are pretty common fare within the compound but once you cross Bear Creek, it wouldn’t be uncommon to spot Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep, wild turkey, black hawks, golden eagles or even the occasional bear off in the distance.

At New Mexico Cabin Rentals, you can participate in a wide-variety of free-flowing activities , including hiking, birding, rock hounding, photography, stargazing, archaeology and maybe some mountain biking. Explore the hill sides along Bear Creek for the remnants of the Ancient Ones - the Mimbres Indians whose famous red/ black pottery shards can still be found, as well as arrow heads and or other hand made tools. The trail riding is spectacular. The horse is the original 4x4. And, if you’d like to consider bringing your own horse, we’ve got self-care pens and a 300’ x 250’ enclosed arena. Or you can arrange for an equine rental if you let us know in advance. Call for more information about the horseback riding experiences that are available and the associated pricing.

If you want to experience more of what the Land of Enchantment has to offer, you can hike the Double E Ranch Trail, our direct private access to nearly 3 million acres of public lands (New Mexico State Land, Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service) where you can rock hound and explore Native ruins or just enjoy the spectacular vistas in every direction, for miles and miles - seeing all the way to the Arizona Border!!

Information on some of our best local attractions, art galleries, museums, restaurants, and annual events and activities such as Tour de Gila Bike Race, the Wild, Wild West Pro-Rodeo and Silver City Blues Festival are included in your cabin Information Booklet and can also be found on the ‘Area Attractions’ page of our website.
