This was one of the best vacation destinations in which we have ever stayed! WOW! The genuine hospitality of Mary Ann and Lawrence is a gateway to the historic Valle Vidal and the unique Rio Costilla Park. We'll be back!

Mary Ann and Lawrence are the ideal B&B Innkeepers, friendly from the moment you meet them, interested and interesting. Lawrence can tell some great stories. The breakfast and available dinner is not only prepared by them but shared with them which makes the stay special. The Inn is their home and every detail is wonderful. The location is gorgeous with... More

Our hosts at MW Bar Ranch have deep life experience with New Mexico city life as well as hunting and fishing in the Valle Vidal Unit, formerly a private Pennzoil preserve, and now Carson National Forest. We stayed in the large main log cabin style house, upstairs, with large bedroom and private tub/shower bath. Our hosts served two excellent breakfasts... More

The best accommodations, the best food, the best scenery, the best hospitality, and absolutely the best and nicest people you would ever want to meet. Lawrence and Mary Ann treat you like family and will make you feel more at home than you do in your own home. Simply the best place you could possibly stay. Anywhere. Joe Billingsley Fort... More

What a wonderful setting, comfortable accommodations and gracious hosts! We enjoyed a late fall weekend stay with Mary Ann and Lawrence in their spacious cabin set at the edge of the Rio Costilla and the Valle Vidal wilderness areas. The crisp fall air, vibrant changing colors of the trees, and the cozy cabin with its wood-burning stove provided a romantic... More

After hiking most of the state, we got to explore the area around Amalia this fall thanks to the delightful (and hugely informative) Lawrence and Mary Ann. The cabin, ranch, breakfast, company, and overall environment were just perfect. When I expect to cook somewhere I usually bring things from my own kitchen, as they will not be present in the...

When we arrived, MW Bar Ranch was bathed in the golden sunlight of a late New Mexico summer afternoon. This initial vision of the picturesque sprawling ranch aptly reflects our stay there in mid-August. It was our third visit in the past few years and each time I treasure more the peace and quiet, the many homey comforts, the thoughtfulness... More

This was our first trip to the Valle Vidal area for fishing and relaxation and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay at. The accomodations were very nice and cozy. We stayed in the cabin and it was very comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy a nice BBQ dinner. Our hosts Lawrence and MaryAnn are very... More

We go up to the Valle Vidal each summer and have always stayed quite far away....in Red River or Questa. From now on, we will stay at the MW Bar Ranch. Mary Ann and Lawrence are excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful but not too talkative or involved as some B & B hosts we have experienced. The house is... More

Great accommodations, great scenery, great food & two finer hostess & host you will never meet !! Just a few miles to the water you want to fish. Couldn't ask for a better setup! Can't wait to get back! Dale S
