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

We are almost reluctant to write a review for fear that we will not be able to secure a reservation when we return, as we undoubtedly will. There are only 3 or 4 cottages available and, of these, only one or two that are ideal for a couple. (We say one OR two because the owners, Gary and Ming, will... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cowboy Log Cabin for two nights, and it was a mistake -- we should have stayed at least a week! When we made our reservations, we thought of Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch as a good base for exploring Mesa Verde. It was perfect for this purpose -- but I wish we... More

Canyon of the ancients is about 17 miles away from Cortez, but worth the extra miles and definitely nicer than staying in the Cortez.We used this as our base for a visit to Mesa Verde. We stayed in the Cowboy Log Cabin which was perfect for a couple. Ming left some beef and eggs in our fridge for us, both... More

We stayed at the Pioneer House for 2 nights while visiting the area in late April. The accommodations are impeccable. We were with our 2 kids (6 and 3 years old) who loved the outdoors but especially the bunk beds! Garry and Ming (the owners of the ranch) are the most welcoming, cosmopolitan, earthy and all round good people. The... More

This place was the highlight of our 3 week trip to USA from Australia.. Ming and Garry are the most welcoming and hospitable hosts who we now would call friends. They could not do enough for us and the cowboy cabin was such a unique gorgeous place to stay in. Loved being part of the farm ranch and being able... More

We were here the last week of September 2013. We each thought the other had written a review so that is the reason this is a little late getting posted. Cannot say enough good, wonderful things about the Ranch, Garry and Ming. They really worked with us to make our time there a relaxing experience. We were late arrivals on... More
