ESCAPE to the L.C. Ranch , Gila NM

7 sites · RVs8 acres · Gila, NM
The Historic L.C. Ranch can accommodate up to 5 RVs with full hookups & WiFi, including 3 sites with 50 amp electrical service, We are not accepting tent or car campers at this time of year. The L.C. Ranch was the second largest Cattle Ranch in American history. In its heyday around 1900 it was over one million acres. Today the cows are gone, along with the vast tracts of land and the cowboys that managed the herds. The Lyons and Campbell Ranch Headquarters remains as a time capsule of an era past. The extensive adobe compound includes the 27 room adobe mansion of Cattle Baron Tom Lyons and his wife Ida Campbell, along with the fabulous Old West Saloon, Jail, post office, bunkhouses, Theater and Chapel. In the summer months enjoy the great swimming pool, and in the spring and fall enjoy the Mimbres design hot tub. Our RV sites are closed in the winter, but our Airbnb apartments are closed in January only. The Theater has just added a video cinema system to its live performance capabilities. Think "movie night". There is a lot of history here, and for just $10/person you can take the 2 hour tour of the historic grounds. The L.C. Ranch is located in the tiny village of Gila, just 30 minutes from Silver City, right off U.S. 180 on NM Hwy 211.

Behr Art

6 sites · Lodging2 acres · Glenwood, NM
I am a working artist of many mediums; ceramics, copper, painting, collage, et al and proprietor of Behr Art Gallery & Gifts. Alongside this work, I  design spaces and events,  host workshops, markets, annual festivals, officiate weddings, and make my ever-morphing property available for others to share and enjoy. To that, I've spent nearly every day designing, decorating, reconstructing, reconfiguring and reworking this historic property, farm and gardens. The structures I've built and designed that are available for your retreat include the CABIN, the LOTUS, the  POND HUT and the TREE HOUSE.The Cabin  was  once a bunkhouse. The previous owners moved it (rolled it on logs) to its present location.  In doing so, the floor joists needed to be reattached and a foundation was constructed to stabilize the building. My brother and I cut, fitted, mudded, tied, nailed, plumbed, electrified  and created a marvelous space.  This is otherwise a working art studio,  organic farm and orchard, with ponds, shade trees, peace, quiet and some of the darkest skies for star gazing in the nation.My backstory:A Connecticut native, I moved to Silver City/Pinos Altos New Mexico in 1970 and then  to Glenwood in 1982. For twenty-two of those years, I lived on a ranch with a herd of horses and two donkeys, and my passion was endurance riding. After thousands of training hours, competitive miles, and sponsoring the Scorpion Sting Endurance Ride, I  gave it up for the life I now live on this land.

Little Walnut Haven

1 site · RV6 acres · Silver City, NM
Ten minutes from Silver's historic downtown, fifteen minutes to Walmart, and once you get here you're in a world of your own.. Your off-the-beaten-track concrete pad (18' x 23', so best for vans and class B RVs) is on a dead end off a dead end, and far enough from me to give you complete privacy. (It's a short distance from the house front, but as I use a second driveway that goes to the back you won't see very much of me.) I'm on six acres of land with trees all around the pad, and you're five minutes away from the Gila National Forest, with Gomez Peak visible from your secluded one space, one vehicle site. It's dark and quiet at night, with just enough dogs barking to remind you you're in New Mexico. I have earplugs if you don't. That's about it. This is a new venture for me and I'm happy to listen to any suggestions you might have that would make your stay even more enjoyable. Welcome! And a P.S. I hope I can take away soon: There's a road construction project underway on Little Walnut Road, the way to the house. You may experience a brief delay or a short detour as you go up or down.
