We (3 adults , 2 kids - 4 and 6 years of age) stayed for 3 days in Pioneer House on Ming and Gary's ranch. What I liked most was how beautiful the landscape was and the animals ( cows, sheep, chickens) freely roamed the grounds. The kids absolutely loved the ranch. My son ate a dozen carrots right out...

As you can see the reviews are all positive. Ming and Gary are a wonderful, hard working couple. They made sure to make our stay a memorable one. We stayed in the "Cowboy Cabin" for 6 days.(Smart move on our part) Our stay was everything that was advertised. Even with their busy daily chores their took time to share their... More

It is rare that we return to remote locations that we have visited; there are so many wonderful new places to see. We rarely stay at the same place twice; there are so many wonderful places in which to stay. And yet because we would be just an 8 hour (500 mile) drive away, we knew that we had to... More

Staying at Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch was the highlight of our tour of the Southwest. We stayed for two nights in the Pioneer House. The accommodations were clean and attractive, just as they appear in pictures at canyonoftheancients.com. We enjoyed meeting Ming and Garry. Upon arrival, Garry gave us a tour of the Pioneer House and the ranch.... More

We traveled for three weeks in the Four Corners and our four days here were an absolute highlight of our trip. Ming and Gary are terrific hosts on this beautiful ranch in the McElmo Creek Canyon in Cortez. We shared the ranch with their chickens, sheep, horses and cows which was such fun. Ming stocked fresh eggs from the chickens... More

A little treasure in the middle of a breathtaking area. Me and my husband went there for a couple days and it was our best stay so far. Gary and Ming are amazing hosts. They are very kind, friendly and helpful. Their knowledge about the area is amazing. They gave us so many tips to go and see, but we... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch July 2014. It was by far one of the most memorable vacations that we have ever had. The ranch is beautiful in itself and the accommodations are top notch. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well appointed and the house is beautifully decorated. More importantly, the owners...

The Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch was a highlight of our 3 week trip across the USA! Even though we only stayed one night (we wished it could have been at least 2 nights!), we felt it was a respite from the usual hotel fare while taking a long trip. We instantly felt welcomed! We stayed in the Pioneer... More

I think we would all live here if we could. This was our second visit. We adore Garry and Ming. All of the animals, the ranch, the farm to table options, their generosity and kindness are all just little bits of the overall wonderful-ness of this vacation rental. We love Eldon House. It’s perfect for our family of four. The... More

As I planned our three week road trip to the Southwest, my goal was to experience and immerse myself in the lifestyle of the people who currently live in the canyon of the ancients as well as those who had come before. I was not disappointed. Now this is a bit remote,17 miles into the canyon of the ancients! But... More
