Ghost Ranch is absolutely breathtaking. We loved our weekend as part of the Valentine's event. The staff and teachers are wonderful and kind. We especially enjoyed our reflexology class and our guided hike. My personal favorite is the 24hour library-heaven! From the gorgeous sunrises to the lovely sunsets to the night sky filled with a myriad of stars-Ghost Ranch is... More

My husband and I just spend a wonderful week at this very special place. We found the staff friendly and welcoming. The staff and volunteers are very knowledgable about the local cultures, history, archaeology, and paleontology of the area. Just stand in one spot and do a 360 degree turn, and you will see spectacular beauty with every turn. The... More

Range from the VERY affordable to the very luxurious and the prices now are DISCOUNTED 20% until Jan term. Makes for a very peaceful and affordable getaway at this time of year to escape the hecticness of the season and get back to a more spiritual place.

My family and I have been going here since 1998. We LOVE Ghost Ranch! This is not a resort, it is like going to camp, you stay in Cabins. It is a little rustic, so dont expect cable TV. Plan to Retreat from the rush rush of every day life, pick a class you are interested in and come to... More

We stayed at Ghost Ranch for 3 days, having previously visted on day trips. We were not sure what to expect for accommodation as there are lots of different kinds of rooms to rent. Ours was great - we were in Tumbleweed which had a bedroom & sitting room located high above the ranch with uninterrupted views of the magnificent... More

Our group of 4 ladies stayed at G.R. three nights & had a memorable stay! Highly recommend this!! STAY , don't just day-visit! Great for artists, etc. Abundant healthy food, hiking, tours. Our 'casita' was mid- level in available housing, I would look into the more upscale housing next time-ask about the different choices. Staff was overall friendly, a few... More

I spent 3 wonderful days at Ghost Ranch on a personal retreat. Here's a link to my travel blog: http://perfectoutings.com/journey-ghost-ranch-new-mexico/ The scenery was beyond stunning, and being there mid-week in the fall meant having the place practically to myself. On all my hikes, I encountered just 1 or 2 people (I suppose other folks were either in their workshops or... More

What a magical and beautiful place. The accommodations range from rustic to comfortable, but the atmosphere is unbeatable. I went for the Wisdom Sharing Workshop which was wonderful. The staff was great, and the participants amazing. If you like to hike there are 3 fabulous hikes that begin right at the parking lot, if you enjoy art or photography you... More

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. This was a dude ranch, not a 5... More

Unless you are participating in a workshop, the best (perhaps only) reason to stay at Ghost Ranch is to be able to go on early morning and twilight hikes amidst some of the most spectacular high desert scenery in the world. As with many retreat centers, the accommodations are simple -- it's not "Ghost Ranch Spa and Resort" after all.... More
