This past holiday season we noticed a lot of discussion around people gifting experiences instead of “stuff”. Nowadays, it seems like people want to invest their money in truly memorable experiences they will cherish for a lifetime (we particularly noticed this trend with Grandparents and Grandchildren last season). So how about a New Mexico dude ranch experience? Dude ranching was one of the first industries to realize that people wanted to immerse themselves in their vacation and experience, not just observe.
The safe and careful hospitality we offer at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch allows you to escape, explore, and experience. You will ride horses, explore ancient cultures, and observe untamed wilderness. We invite you to be a part of something bigger than yourself and experience a change of pace from everyday life. By gifting yourself or loved ones with a New Mexico dude ranch experience, you are truly bestowing the gift that keeps on giving.
The Gift of A New Mexico Dude Ranch Experience
Here’s what you can expect to get out of a New Mexico dude ranch experience at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch:
The gift of friendship
The ranch is the year-round home of Meris and Seth Stout. When you visit, you are considered friends of the family and are treated with genuine hospitality. As owners and managers, we share our meals with you and we educate you about the horses and the forest we call our home. We love sharing stories around the campfire and truly connecting with our guests. Our guests come from a variety of states, countries, and cultures but all share a passion for horses, history, and the great outdoors.
The gift of wide open spaces
The ranch is located in the Gila National Forest of New Mexico. 3.3 million acres are readily accessible, right outside the gates of the ranch. The open meadows and clear areas beneath the Ponderosa pines invite exploration in any direction. We take you on rides through deep canyons, across crystal clear streams and to mountain overlooks. Not only is the scenery breathtaking, but we also observe a variety of wildlife including elk, deer, javelina, coyote, heron, hawks, eagles, and more.
The gift of quiet
Situated west of the Continental Divide in the mountains of southwest New Mexico, Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is located in a truly unspoiled setting, secluded and serene. We are off the power grid; electricity comes from solar arrays supplemented by generators as necessary. 85 miles from the nearest stoplight, evidence of the intrusion of modern man is virtually absent. Cell phone coverage stops 70 miles away; your stay will be undisturbed.
The gift of family bonding
If your family is looking for a life changing vacation, then a New Mexico dude ranch experience is for you. At Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch you will ride together as a family. By sharing new experiences together, you will build long lasting and interesting memories. You won’t find a better spot for family bonding than around our dining room table. Your family will take all your meals around one big table where everyone can share and relive the daily adventures.
The gift of stress free vacation planning
The ranch is all inclusive. Rates include all meals, accommodations, horseback riding, hiking, activities and entertainment. We offer an authentic, personalized New Mexico dude ranch experience by limiting the number of guests to a maximum of 16. This ensures your vacation is tailored to you.
