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

We spent three nights here between Christmas and New Year's as part of our vacation to the four corners area. I had read about it here on TripAdvisor and contacted Ming Adams, one of the owners to make arrangements for a stay. She recommended the Elden Stone House for our family (two adults and two sons, 11 and 12.) When... More

My wife and I decided to spend our anniversary at the Canyon of the Ancients guest ranch. Garry and Ming Adams are the owners and they were so very nice to us. The facilities are all first rate, clean, and well designed and decorated. Garry shared many recommendations with us on local sites and they really helped us get the... More

Come here. Meet Gary and Ming. Meet Yuma and Elmo and Henry (one of several cats). Look at the amazing sky and mountains. Feel the presence of the ancient peoples. Hike. Be in awe of ancient artifacts and art, Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, the San Juan Skyway. Or sit on the porch of the peaceful, cozy Cowboy Cabin and listen to... More

Our visit to the ranch was perhaps the highlight to our recent tour of New Mexico and southern Colorado. We wanted to stay in the Cortez area so that we could see Mesa Verde (40 minutes drive from the ranch), which we enjoyed. But the ranch turned out to be a wonderful experience in its own right: both comfortable and... More

Our family of four (two college age sons) needed a place to stay while exploring the Four Corners area...how lucky we are that we found Garry and Ming and their lovely guest ranch. We stayed in the Elden Stone House which was beautiful. How often do you find yourself taking pictures of the lodging itself? I already miss the fresh... More

This is the perfect spot from which to launch a series of 4 Corners explorations. Well-situated and super close to Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, and Gooseneck, with Durango and Telluride just a bit further away. I took so many photos that I had to empty my camera and now want to take a photography class and go back. The cabins are... More

This is wonderful place to stay, with wonderful and friendly hosts who go far out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. It's especially good if you have an interest in archaeology, since your hosts will share it and pull out all the stops to make sure you get the most out of the area. The... More

We have stayed at Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch in McElmo Canyon twice and immensely enjoyed our stay both times. From the time we arrived until we reluctantly headed home, Garry and Ming, our warm, generous and enthusiastic hosts, made us feel welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the Cowboy Cabin, which is perfect for a couple. We enjoyed... More
