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.
Best part of our trip!!
Lillian and her land are magic! We feel so lucky to have discovered her beautiful land, rich history, shining personality, loving animals and fun adventures. She was so incredible with my three kids and our stay at her ranch was one of the highlights of our travels! She is so generous with her home and land. What an experience. We can’t wait to go back!!!! Thank you Lillian for having us, we miss you guys!!
Recommended if you know what to expect! Gorgeous land, gorgeous views and sunsets, was magical with the horses! Just know what a compost toilet is, and don't expect electricity but one probably doesn't expect these things when searching on HipCamp. Mattress provided, no bunks, need to bring own bedding. Overall very beautiful, enjoyed the fire pit, and the quiet: ) Lillian is a great and responsive host.
Lilian's property is one reason to visit but Lilian herself is the other! In the short time that I stayed she gave me a wonderful and unforgettable experience! If you really want to be far into an unadulterated experience of the land then go.
Largo Ranch is amazing. My bf and I stayed two nights and it was magical. Lillian is an exceptional host who took us out to the rim and a hike through caves. The cabin has everything you need and nothing you don’t, and it’s absolutely gorgeous with lots of personal touches. The house’s cat, Zephyr, will *steal your heart*. We were treated to a rare rain shower and a full rainbow one evening, immediately followed by a phenomenal night sky. Truly magical.
It is a drive to get out there, but worth it. We set our odometer and it was closer to a 23.5mi drive down the dirt/gravel road than 25. Just have your eyes peeled between 23 and 25, it’ll be on your left kind of tucked back a bit. Again, sooo worth it!
This is the best crowd share site I’ve ever stayed at!
Lillian is a tremendous host. She waited for us (we got lost and were about an hour behind), drove us out to the rim at sunset, and even hiked up to the caves with us to see the petroglyphs the next morning. She is a fountain of historical knowledge- absolutely a pleasure to talk with. There are tons of artifacts on the ranch- it’s really, really cool.
The house is lovely. Everything you need, nothing you don’t. The breeze coming through kept us cool in the middle of July, and we were even treated to a summer rainstorm with a beautiful whole rainbow in the pasture. There’s a cat who lives in/around the house- Zephyr- and he’s possibly the most loving and adventurous cat you’ll meet!
The ranch is so quiet and serene. The horses and cows are nearby, and we also saw a horned toad and tons of interesting dragonflies. I wouldn’t change a thing about this place- it’s really spiritual experience.
If your looking for a place to unplug and get back to nature I highly recommend Largo Rim Ranch. This beautiful and expansive property is off the beaten trail but well worth the trip. Anyone lucky enough to experience this location is in for a life changing experience. Coming from Vermont I am used to breath taking landscapes but this area is vastly different from anything I have ever seen. Big sky's and endless fields give way to an unimaginable canyon rich with wildlife and Native American history. Lillian is a friendly and inspirational host. Her knowledge of the land helps you understand landmarks that would otherwise go unnoticed. This area is only meant for those that are willing to appreciate natural beauty. The land should be respected and left the way that its found. I hope to return to this spot with my children one day and share my experience with others.
