The whole family spent 4 days at the Burnt Well Guest Ranch in March for Spring Break. We loved it because 1. The rides were longer and more exciting than we'd previously experienced at a resort type ranch. 2. We really enjoyed interacting with Kim and Patricia and the rest of their family as well as the other guests. We... More

Spent a week there last fall, probably off-season a bit but enjoyed the great hospitality and easy paced ranch work and cattle driving. The ranch house is very comfortable and the horses are all good ranch workers. The spectacular rolling vistas are endless. This is a wonderful remote place that I found very restorative.

I traveled to Burnt Well with a group of (city) high school students. I won't repeat previous comments about accommodations, meals, etc. All outstanding. What really impressed me was the way hosts Kim and Patricia and Tye made us feel welcome and took a genuine interest in our diverse group of kids, most of whom had little or no experience... More

Fantastic vacation, a genuine working ranch, lots of horse riding at different locations, including up in the mountains and around Fort Stanton. The cattle work was so much fun. The food was excellent and plenty. Great company. The accommodation has a feel of the old west but with all modern conveniences and spotlessly clean. The day out to Carlsbad caverns... More

Burnt Well Ranch is a real working ranch. They raise cattle and lambs and started taking guests just about a decade ago to supplement income. The ranch is family run by Kim, his wife Patricia and their son and daughter-in-law. There were only 3 other guests when I was there for the week and they were all returnees. We had... More

Thank you Chessers! We had the most amazing stay and really felt like we had the experience of a lifetime. Coming from a similar ranch in Australia we loved comparing notes and giggling about funny differences! Your hospitality was incomparable, food was delicious and thoughtful and accommodation was authentic and comfortable. Your horses are a credit to you with the... More

You haven't lived till you try this awesome ranch experience and the chessers hospitality. We stayed there for a week. We drove cattle to various fields and slept under the stars and later in the week drove... More

This could not have been any better. Really the best facilities, horses, food and, best of all, family. We really wanted an *authentic* cattle drive experience. This was it! We were allowed to genuinely help, not just watch. And our hosts really empower you to learn and DO without making you feel ignorant (which I really was going into this!).... More

Brilliant experience. Every horse rider should try it. It's the real thing!! We found it on the internet and it couldn't have been better. I was apprehensive as was travelling along but need not have worried. The horse riding was awesome, the food was too...I would recommend anyone to go there at least once!! The whole package gets a 10/10... More

Burntwell guest ranch is an experience i recommend that everyone should experience whether young or old. For a start Kim and Patricia, Tye our hosts are as friendly as they come and Pats cooking is lovely. The western style horse riding and cattle herding was what the liitle kid (cowboy) inside all of us had wished for all along. The... More
