~THE OLD WEST, A NEW VISION~ Welcome to a 1938 WPA adobe school house in renovation mode. Spacious, clean and comfortable, modern solar lighting, furnished with cool old stuff, even the original school table and benches. Whether solo, two or a small group, this place is meant to make you feel welcome! Guided tours to incredible views, hiking trails, wildlife, and ranch animals. Peace and serenity at our medicine wheel - recenter/rejuvenate. A photographers paradise, all of you out there who are looking for those unique pictures! (Previously listed- Largo Rim Ranch until we noticed the outline of the canyon rim was in the shape a hawk with outstretched wings. )AKA as Largo Rim Ranch, but we noticed on our map of the canyon the outline of a Hawk, so we amended. As for the cabin- while deciding on a name, a patch of native flowers came up in the front yard in the shape of heart, which confirmed our desire for its purpose. This Homestead was built late 1800's from nearly all natural, nearby materials and lovingly renovated with the same. No running water but a well close by, outhouse, and solar lighting, wood and gas stove and a fire pit, wood provided. Bring your own linens or sleeping bags Its sweet, solid and enduring like a good relationship. It is private, yet accessible for low carriage vehicles. There are great views all around, with 200+ acres you can explore at your leisure (map provided). This is both wooded and open terrain with lovely, shaded picnic spots, amazing rock formations, ponds with water fowl and open grass lands where livestock and Elk graze. Guided tours ($10 per person) of the rest of the ranch are offered on request. This is the Canyon country with incredible panoramic views overlooking the SABINOSO WILDERNESS, fresh water springs, Ancient's caves, petroglyphs and artifacts, Deer, Bear, Mountain Lion, of course the Hawk and many more wild animals (check out The Birds Eye View for canyon Picts and reviews). This is a visit to a bygone Era, with limited amenities but unlimited peace for mind, body, spirit and soul.

HEART'S HAVEN at Hawk Rim Ranch
Go back in time.
This property is way off the grid. It was absolutely amazing. The house has a guardian cat that will talk to you. Lillian was an amazing hostess that took me around her ranch and showed me so many amazing things. Definitely need to know there is a long dirt road to get there. There is an outhouse. There is no running water, electricity or cell/internet service. There are stars for miles, amazing sunsets and sunrises, there is quiet and stillness that brings an amazing peace. You want to just disconnect completely and enjoy your surroundings.

HEART'S HAVEN at Hawk Rim Ranch
Roughing it on the High Plains
I thought Hearts Haven was a delight. It’s not for everyone. It’s 20 miles of dirt road off the beaten path up in the high plains. The road was rough at time but the scenery makes up for it. We saw many wild antelope with their fawns. The rustic experience was a great teaching tool for our eight year old grandson so that he could get a taste of life before video games and even electrify or running water. I would recommend that you bring a few gallons of extra water. The sleeping arrangement wasn’t ideal since it was three single beds however we did ok. Lillian was lovely and we enjoyed the houses resident house cat

HEART'S HAVEN at Hawk Rim Ranch
This was exactly what I was looking for. 23 miles down a dirt road out in the middle of nowhere. Lillian was very helpful; showed me all the ins and outs - where everything was and how things worked. The wood fired oven was plenty warm. I had to get up in the night to refill the burn box, but I expected that. No electricity. Solar panels charge a battery that's just strong enough to keep the LED lights shining until about bed time. After that there is an oil lamp on the table if you need it. No plumbing. If you need water to wash your hands/face there's a windmill pump and water tank nearby, or bring your own. A nice outhouse is about 100 feet away for when nature calls. If you want to cook a meal, you have two options. Try your hand with the wood fired oven or use the propane fired 4-burner oven. The two twin size beds were comfortable, clean, with plenty of blankets. It was absolutely quiet - 100%, except for a faint morning moo from a cow in the distance. Cabin is adobe with wooden ceiling and tin roof.

A Step Back Into History
Lillian is a wonderful host, and we thank her for sharing the history of both her family and the land. The schoolhouse is a special place to stay. It's easy to imagine children writing on the blackboard or sitting on the front steps. The ranch offers endless hikes and beautiful vistas of Canon Largo and the Canadian River. We are sure to return.
