    If you are looking for a place to rest your hearts and souls, our Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch & Vacation Rental will be the very right place for you. It is not a Bed & Breakfast, but a private home that we want to share our passion for history, archeology and the beauty of Southwestern Colorado.
    Our place is located at the peaceful and quaint McElmo Canyon. The road leads to the Ranch was called “Mormon Road” where the early Mormons migrated to Utah through the Canyon. It is also nicknamed “Robber’s Path”. People said that Butch Cassidy had hid his fortune in the Canyon, and old timers here knew that someone had discovered a bag of gold in the 40s.

    Over 200,000 documented archeological sites in this beautiful area waiting for you to explore. The Canyon of the Anci...

We only had 1 issue (with the roosters crowing) but once we complained, the problem was solved and we had 5 wonderful nights. Garry and Ming were very gracious hosts. They gave us suggestions for where...

We had such a good stay- we turned around and bought a week between Christmas and New Years. The second you get on the ranch, you can just feel how unique and cool your stay is going to be. We came because we wanted a base to travel to Mesa Verde, Hoevenweep and Chaco Canyon. We had almost more fun... more
