You might think the scenery of Northern New Mexico is spectacular enough, but if you enjoy art, then treat yourself to the Landscape Tour at Ghost Ranch. As the guide holds up Georgia O'Keefe prints in front of the many places the artist loved and painted, you will become even more amazed with nature, and maybe even fancy yourself an... More

Just returned after a week (July 14-20) at Ghost Ranch. It was the second visit for one adult in our group, the third for two adults and the fifth for the final adult. This was the first visit for the two kids, ages 5 and 9. I will address this review in several sections: Activities, Food, Lodging, Tips and Overall... More

Ghost Ranch is always extraordinary. I must have been here a dozen times for workshops and professional conferences. I have day hiked and stayed on the mesa with my family and even did a short campout in the campground many years ago, but this was our first week long summer conference and campout. The experience did not disappoint! Let me... More

We have been traveling to Ghost Ranch for years and meet people that have been coming for decades . The spirit of of the ranch is captured in Georgia O'Keef's paintings of the spectacular landscapes. The land is owned by the Presbyterian Church and shared with public . A hike in the early morning and late evening is a special... More

Stayed in the campground here (tent) for two nights. A bit noisy due to groups during the week, but very quiet on the weekend. Only one bathhouse/restroom, which required a 5 minute stroll. Ghost Ranch itself is an amazing place; steeped in history, great hikes, and beautiful views. I can't wait to go back for a class or two. Friendly,... More

Ghost Ranch is a place that Georgia O'Keefe hung out and a place of great history. It is also a beautiful place of peace. But, it is owned by the Presbyterians, and requires reservations. It is not too expensive, but you do need to do some planning if you are in this area for food/lodging as the area is remote.... More

This was our first stay at the ranch. We just stayed overnight, but were amazed at the amount of people staying here! Many of them had been a part of various art classes during the week and we were treated to an art show of their work. The grounds are lovely, sprawling with wonderful open spaces and large shady trees.... More

If you're fan of Georgia O'Keefe, or simply enjoy her artwork, I highly recommend a visit to her homes at Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu (about an hour or so from Santa Fe or Taos). To visit her home in Abiquiu you'll need to make a reservation in advance of your visit (highly recommended as it's very popular and gets booked... More

The landscape is amazing. A must see for anyone fascinated by geology or the high desert. There also are activities like horseback riding, hiking, and camping. I stayed there for 6 nights, and while I enjoyed the class I took there, and photographing the landscape in my spare time - I do not recommend the lodging. It's way overpriced for... More

Our 3 night stay at Ghost Ranch was a wonderful experience. For us, the wonder is with the surrounding environment. Northern New Mexico has great variety in its landscape. The trails on or near Ghost Ranch are great, with several levels of difficulty. We often felt that we were within a Georgia O'Keefe painting, as she painted Ghost Ranch scenes... More
