~THE OLD WEST, A NEW VISION~ This land- our family’s dream in the becoming; our lifeblood is our commitment to a legacy of stewardship for over 100 hundred years. In a world that is day by day more virtual, this is the real deal. It is our desire to carefully share some of its wonder, its magic and the healing that no modern medicine can offer. Historic, clean, comfortable carefully renovated accommodations. Peace and serenity at our medicine wheel, recenter/rejuvenate. Guided tours to incredible canyon views, hiking trails, wildlife and ranch animals. (Previously listed- Largo Rim Ranch until we noticed the outline of the canyon rim was in the shape a hawk with outstretched wings. ) 🎯Check out EXTRAS! A sweat equity offer as a Stewardship Partner to participate in helping to address certain erosion issues occurring within the Hawk. We ourselves have found that in this work, we have gained a measure of our own healing. Come and join us, prepared with work gloves, sturdy boots, plenty of water and a will to make a difference one rock at a time! How this works: Book 1 night thru Hipcamp as a guest(s), then include each Stewardship Partner in the EXTRAS offer for 2 more nights without charge.BIRD’S EYE VIEW (from this vantage point, you can see for miles around) Originally the Maestas School, it served as education and community center from 1938- 1972. This is one stout building, that has withstood the wear and tear of its purpose, then years of neglect and even a tornado, devastating everything in its path but the school house!   Ever since we started working on renovating it, we have experienced its magical protection, and have a dream to share it. So here she is- weathered and worn, but wise and wonderful with age❣️                                                              PERFECT FOR SMALL GROUPS:  FAMILY /FRIENDS GET TOGETHERS,  NURTURE and NATURE WORKSHOPS, STAR GAZING PARTIES, ARTIST and WRITERS OPPORTUNITIES  -Actually, any occasion where you want a SPECIAL location!

HEART'S HAVEN at Hawk Rim Ranch
Unforgettable Experience
Not only was Lillian’s cabin charming and rustic, but it gave a feeling of peace and quiet that few other places I’ve been have. Our host was accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure we knew the lay of the land and felt at home. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to truly get off the grid and experience life as it was in the old west.

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.
