I love this place. The New Mexico sky is at its finest. Great place to star gaze. Had a wonderful walk in the creek. You can hear the birds. Inkeepers are friendly. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Rooms cute and comfortable.

Thank you so much. So far it's been a beautiful spring here in the foothills of the Gila National Forest. Thanks for visiting! More

We had no cel phone coverage - we just had to show up to find out if there was availability - there was. I asked where to go for dinner or a grocery store - I was told there aren't any nearby, but they were having a potluck dinner and were inviting us to share in it... It was wonderful... More

I'm so glad you have fond memories of your experience at the Lodge. Yes, cell service is spotty in the Gila region, though there is a hot spot here in Kingston. Also, we now offer guests free phone calls anywhere in the USA. We also make our kitchen available to guests, since cafes are few and far between. In any... More

This place is super amazing and the staff is even better. Nestled in an amazing canyon valley just above a creek. Several decks or just open the windows to listen to the water. On one side you have this huge lodge with an outstanding kitchen. The homemade organic bread OMG. So many items to look at inside. On the other... More

I stopped at the Black Range during a bike trip and due to the snow fallen just after my arrival I was forced to stay there three nights. What a blessing! The Black Range is a unique place. It is an historical building with a beautiful setting. The managers themselves are great people and they add great charm to the... More

Excellent handicap accessibility. Hosts are gracious and helpful. Lots of space to explore. Meals were plentiful and healthy! Lots of care but not smothering by hosts. if you let host know your needs I am sure you will be well taken care of then,

We go to Hatch every year for the chili festival and decided to go a different route, this is how we came to stay at the Black Range Lodge for 2 nights. The drive from Silver City is absolutely spectacular. The lodge is quite inviting along with the owner Catherine and staff. It is surprisingly quiet and the air is... More

My husband and I spent the 4th of July at this gorgeous lodge and it was by far the best choice I've made in lodging. Catherine and Gary were so welcoming and made the stay fantastic. The area, at the edge of the Gila National Forest, is beautiful; the cool temperature was a welcome break from the heat in our... More

The hostess is great and more than helpful, that goes for all the staff too. Met wonderful people at the Lodge. The meaks were super, the beds great and we slept like a log . The suggested trip to the pss provided super views of the area, especially looking down on the town of Kingston. The weathe was a little... More

Although we did not bring our dog, we could have. My husband, mother and I had Room 7 for one night. It was comfortable and nice to sit on the balcony (accessible from our room) and visit and look at the stars. Everyone associated with the lodge was friendly and helpful. Wish we had more time to look around the... More

We stayed at the Black Range Lodge for 2 nights, and wished we could have stayed longer! Katherine was so welcoming, and filled us in on the history including the forest fire several years back. This gave us context for what we saw on the drive over the mountains to Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument and Silver City. Incredible drive.... More

Thanks for your kind words, and thanks for visiting us! We particularly enjoyed all the laughs at the dinner table, and your coincidentally meeting up with neighbors from Tacoma Park. I'm pleased that you found the Geronimo Springs Museum in Truth or Consequences worth the visit. (It has everything from the stone age (dinosaur bones) to the space age (Spaceport... More
