Ghost Ranch is one of our favorite places in Northern New Mexico. It is in a drop-dead gorgeous natural setting, where Georgia O'Keeffe lived and painted, and where little seems to have changed since that era early in the 20th century. The red cliffs, grassy fields and cottonwoods, combined with the impossibly blue skies make it an artist's paradise. It... More

Ghost Ranch is a huge place that has many many themes. One is that it is quiet and peaceful in all its property. The valley is full of wonderful sites and views. As a neighbor, I am also blessed as are those that come for rest and relaxation, classes on many subjects including working with your hands - craving, metal... More

I just returned home to Georgia after more than a week in New Mexico. I am still enchanted by "the Land of Enchantment". Ghost Ranch is my favorite place on the planet. It is absolutely stunning. The lodging is comfortable. The staff is friendly and they do all they can to make you comfortable. I enjoyed the food. I can... More

Ghost Ranch has two museums that are well worth the $4/person donation - see the history of the ranch and area, native American populations and paleontology. Also have some wonderful weaved items available for purchase - all made by local people. Next time we're back there I hope to hike some of the trails on the property.

We went for the first time to Ghost Ranch for a week-long retreat. We were overtaken by the beauty of the surroundings. We hiked all the trails on the grounds, which were breathtaking. Food was above average for "camp food" and lodging was acceptable as well. We found it to be a wonderful retreat from our "real lives."

I made my first trip to Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch last month. It's about an hours drive northwest of Santa Fe, and well worth the drive. Beautiful colored hills and mountains make for a scenic drive just getting there. Once on the Ghost Ranch, we took the 'Landscape Tour' of the property. It was a fun adventure on a bumpy... More

Lovely landscape tour led by Kate, a personable and informative guide. Grounds are fun to explore, especially the paleontology museum and original buildings.

My family including my 20 year old son and college student and 16 year daughter all thoroughly enjoyed this overview of Georgia O'Keeffe and her life at Ghost Ranch. Our guide was passionate and knowledgable and the scenery breath taking. I highly recommend you take the time to visit and I hope to return someday for a weekend retreat.

Yes, stop and take photos of the landscape and appreciate the serenity of the land where Georgia O'Keefe painted and lived. The actual property name Ghost Ranch is poorly maintained and does not reveal any information about the painter or her life. There is a dinosaur museum, which is really a large room in cabin at the head of the... More

If you love the beautiful mountain scenery north of Santa Fe, New Mexico, or if you enjoy the art of Georgia O'Keeffe, this two hour driving tour is spectacular. At each stop along the way, you actually view the specific places where Georgia O'Keeffe painted and hear about the history, the geology and the landscape. The guides are very knowledgeable... More
