It's OK, but currently closed to visitors.

You can see the ponderosa pine tree that Georgia OKeefe used as her muse for one of her paintings. Be warned, the Ranch has been closed to visitors since about 2010, so it's only... read more

We had been trying to visit this historic place but with no luck. The phone number listed was disconnected and the Taos visitor center did not know when it was open. One day we were heading north out of Taos on our way to Questa. At mile marker 10 there was a state historical marker about the DH Lawrence ranch... More

All literary fans visiting Northern New Mexico should include a visit to the DH Lawrence Ranch during their trip. Now open 3 days a week (managed by the University of New Mexico), the location alone of this gem makes for an enjoyable side trip. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

You are likely to be disappointed if you try and find this - it's been closed for years and only a security guard remains on site. Many of the new local maps still mark it as accessible, however, and there is no indication that it's shut on the road up to it, so the information in local brochures is often... More

We picked up a map of Taos which had the ranch and shrine marked on it. It was a 2014 map so there was no excuse not to make it clear that there was no access. So we went in search of it and were surprised that the Historical Marker was covered (but surely that info is independent of the... More

You can see the ponderosa pine tree that Georgia OKeefe used as her muse for one of her paintings. Be warned, the Ranch has been closed to visitors since about 2010, so it's only open by special requests and an annual Friends of the Ranch event. There's not really much to see anyway, so you're better off with the Enchanted... More

Yep, seems to be very much closed We headed off from Taos to try and find it. There were no road signs, seems they are covered/ taken down. We ended up at Questa asking for direction and were told it was closed. So all in all a wasted 50 mile round trip, hey ho, I should have checked here first.

The signs leading to this have been removed in recent months. Was not worth the trip before. Old site, rat infested grave site that gave us the chills. Unhealthy to be there. A shame they can't keep it open and clean.

All signs for this place have been covered up with boards. I happened to have some directions printed from a while back so was able to figure out where to go. The road is in terrible shape.
