Great stay in the Four Corners Region. Gary and Ming are gracious hosts. The Pioneer House is beautifully decorated and is conveniently located near all major sites in the Region. Don't miss the stars at night and the animals during the day. Beautiful property. Nature lovers will adore it.

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary this is the place. Or actually this place is worth a journey ! Close to nature, animals and beautiful rooms - also a winery close by !!!. If you are a family we can not promote this place enough. When we were there the baby chickens just arrived - what... More

We had a great 3 day stay in the cabin. The owners, Garry and Ming are very friendly and helpful. On their recommendation we visited Hovenweep for a fantastic hike and Sutcliffe Winery for wine tasting. Made great friends with Elmo the ranch dog. Beautiful drive from Cortez and Mesa Verde. Loved our time at Canyon of the Ancients Ranch.... More

Boy was this a great place. You are on a real working ranch. We stayed in the Elden Stone House. Roomy, two bedroom house with a third room with a day bed and the sofa in the living room is very sleepable. There is only one bathroom. They provide fresh eggs for you. We were able to by fresh hamburger... More

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
