I just returned from the Wisdom Sharing Workshop and Retreat. The staff is outstanding and much effort was put into this opportunity. The cabins are basic, they meet your needs and so much time is spent with the classes, hikes, lectures, and dining that very little time is spent in the room. A new chef was hired 2 months ago...

After many well-intentioned drive-bys on the way to Chama RR, finally visited for a pre-ticketed landscape tour. Wonderful and inspirational experience for grandparents and grandkids, alike. Stunning views, changing as the sun/clouds change. Young and young understood why O'Keeffe was so rooted to this area. Every one of us vowed to return. An easy 65-minute drive north of Santa Fe.

The Ghost Ranch is a beautiful setting. However, when I arrived and walked into my very shabby cabin I found it very dirty. The floor had dust even dust balls on it. The bathroom sink was so filty I did not want to use it. Toilet and bathroom just as bad. Also, while waiting to talk with office staff there... More

The tour of the property of the Ghost Ranch was fabulous. The guide brought Georgia O'Keeffe to life. I better understand her art and appreciate it more.

After you have done all the museums in Santa Fe, do yourself a favor and get out into the country and experience what the artists are really looking at. The O’Keeffe Landscape Tour just happens to be the best tour of them all.

We had a private trail ride with views of the mesas and mountains that inspired Georgia O'Keefe that were absolutely breathtaking! Well worth it!

We drove up here after visiting Georgia O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu (highly recommended!!!!!). Although she also had a home at Ghost Ranch, it isn't available for visitors. There is a "Georgia O'Keeffe Scenery" tour, however, which is recommended. There is such beautiful scenery everywhere you look!

We just got back from Santa Fe and we spent a great day at Ghost Ranch. We hiked to Chimney Rock in the morning which was a beautiful hike up into the rocks with a great view. In the afternoon, after a box lunch, we went horseback riding out on the trail. Our ride was led by Daniel who was... More

Just happened on the Ghost Ranch when i was exploring northern New Mexico. This is such a amazing area that is stunningly beautiful. Hiking, bird watching and outdoor activities are wonderful, but the Ghost Ranch also has an some of the best arts, crafts, pottery and metal working classes. Just love it here

We stopped by the Ghost Ranch on our way to Santa Fe to hike the chimney rock trail. A nice hike with great scenery. Plan for about 2 hours. This will give you enough time to spend at the top of the Mesa and take lots of pictures. Stop on a clear day and you won't be disappointed. There is... More
