The space
COVID VACCINATIONS NOW REQUIRED!! The Corona Virus is a huge concern for us. Our health and the health of our guests is at risk. We have suspended the instant booking feature on Airbnb. We have had our vaccinations and now expect our guests to be vaccinated too. The pool is open for the season and we have just fired up the Hot Tub a couple of times. The Mimbres design Hot Tub is wood fired and takes all day to heat up. It is available on request. We have resumed tours of the Main House, with masks and social distancing. You are welcome to hang out in the Saloon, play pool or music. We will not accept bookings from people coming from areas with large CV-19 hot spots. We also allow a minimum of 48 hours vacancy between guests. As we are social distancing, we will have little contact with guests. If you want to escape the big city, hide out and relax in secluded rural New Mexico, the L.C. Ranch is here for you. DOG FRIENDLY!! $10 per dog/per night Pet Fee! We love dogs, no cats please. Dogs left unattended MUST be crated or kenneled. We have a 6' kennel on site. We have two very large Newfoundlands that love company. Life in the country, shop in nearby Silver City for groceries, full kitchen, nothing nearby, only a gas station with very basic necessities. Dog Friendly! $10 per dog/per night Pet Fee. No Cats!

The "Gate House" is a newly renovated, well appointed accommodation perfect for a couple, or couple "plus one", with King Size four-post bed, AIR CONDITIONED, full kitchen, 2-flat screen Satellite TVs, private marble bathroom with Jacuzzi. (The "Bunkhouse" is a much larger, only partially renovated and more rustic accommodation for up to seven people. Click on our host link to get you to the Bunkhouse listing) . Once you're settled in, time to check out the Ranch. A New Mexico Historic Site, and on the National Registry of Historic Places, The National Park Service, in their publication "The Cattleman's Empire" described the million acre L & C as "Overshadowing all other ranching operations in the Southwest", and “The L.C. remains as one of the last surviving Great Ranch Houses of the Old West”. The Lyons and Campbell Ranch Headquarters is a 60 room, 8 acre, Adobe compound that today includes a 27 room adobe Mansion, Saloon, Jail, Chapel, Theatre, Gallery, Bunkhouse, Bath house with large wood-fired Mimbres design communal Hot Tub, Swimming Pool and Lanai with wood burning brick pizza oven and BBQ. (Bath house, Hot Tub, Swimming Pool and pizza oven are seasonal, and not available in the winter months.)
The cattle, cowboys and million acres are long gone. Cattle Baron Tom Lyons' 27 room adobe mansion, lavishly refurnished, remains along with all the outbuildings of the L C Ranch Headquarters. A 501(c)3, your stay will help fund ongoing restoration projects. Donations are tax-deductible.

Where you’ll be

Gila, New Mexico, United States

Although the LC is a destination in itself, the surrounding area has lots to offer from hiking and bird watching to off-road adventures in the nearby Burro mountains and scenic on-road driving adventures, with very little traffic, suitable for family outings or spirited forays through picturesque landscapes in your sports car or motorcycle. The GILA is a beautiful river valley at the base of the Mogollon Mountains and the Gila Wilderness. A true Oasis in the desert Southwest. It is remote and secluded, with 5 seasons, including the delightful late summer monsoons. There is a post office, public library, medical clinic and 3 churches. And 3 miles away in the nearby village of CLIFF there is a gas station with a few very basic groceries. There is one new restaurant, but no grocery, or Liquor stores here! You will need to do your shopping in Silver City, 30 miles before you get here. Wal-Mart and Albertson's, right on U.S. 180 in Silver City, are your best bets. With advance notice, and a fee, Weekend guests can request a BBQ ($100), or Wood Fired Pizza party by the pool, $50 for up to 4 persons. Or do your own BBQ n/c. Your apartment has its own BBQ, or you can use the one at the pool. Your cell phone probably won't work either. If you have Verizon, and stand down by the jail, on one foot, and jump up and down, wave your arm, you might get a signal.....I am not joking, well, maybe a little...

"If we can make it here, we can make it anywhere" . Our family found this historic adobe compound in 1961, abandoned, and falling down. We were instantly enchanted with the authentic Spanish southwest architecture, (dating from 1810, one the oldest houses in the southwest) the vigas in the ceilings, and overwhelmed by the enormity of the compound and the amount of work needed. We have been in love with this place ever since. The projects continue, though the vision of where we are going with it, and what comes next are blurred by the reality of the remoteness. Our life experiences, where we have lived, what we have done, who we have met, and where we have traveled all affect our perspective. The L.C. Ranch refects us as much as it does the rich history of this amazing place. Come visit, we'd like to show you around. Alex & Robin Ocheltree

During your stay

The L.C. is a big property. At first you will need help just finding your way around. It is all very old, but very fun. We ask everyone to respect the age and condition of the ranch and things that are here. The oldest parts of the ranch date from 1810. The Jail looks like it, from the original adobe mud plaster to the vigas in the ceiling. Some of the activities here on the LC will require assistance from us, like music in the Saloon, or firing up the wood-fired Hot Tub in the Bathhouse (seasonal). If you are looking for peace and quiet, that's easy. If you want to party, you will have to wait until after the pandemic is over.
