You cannot visit Georgia O'Keeffe's house but there are two small (archeology/paleontology) museums, a gift shop, and a lot of hiking trails . . . oh, and mosquitoes.

Tour was really interesting and the scenery very beautiful, learned a lot about the ranch and owners... I didn't know that Okeefe didn't own the ranch ... Lack of knowledge on my part! A lot of original Adobe structures...a lot of films have been shot here...in fact one was being made there when we were there

The reason we looked up Ghost Ranch was because when we saw Cowboys and Aliens we marveled over the landscape. Where watching the credits we saw where it was filmed and then our curiosity got the best of us and we had to explore further! Ghost ranch offers so much, but our time was limited and we chose a sunset... More

We stayed at Ghost Ranch for 2 nights. We did the horseback trail ride which was lots of fun. It was 1 1/2 hrs and gives you a good view of the area. The guides are well trained and friendly. We also hiked the Chimney Rock trail. Great trail. Make sure you take lots of water and a snack and... More

I love Ghost Ranch. Georgia O'Keefe is my favorite female artist. It is fascinating to see where she painted her mountain at. This is so interesting about the history of the buildings and the views are extordinary. There are retreats and some activities are always happening. It was hot in the summer. I will go again in cooler weather and... More

We went with our 9-year old son and we were worried that he would be bored as there were not many children here, but he did pretty well. He enjoyed the palaeontology museum and the two fantastic pools was a real treat and surprise as we didn't know that there was one. We stayed on the campground which has hot... More

My friend and I pulled into the ranch just to check out the scene. While neither of us are huge Georgia O'Keefe fans, it is easy to see why she stayed here. Beautiful scenery, changing colors in the landscape and an abundance of inspiration. At the time we were there, there was a bus tour being offered for $35 to... More

I often spend an afternoon on horseback while vacationing and Ghost Ranch was the best experience I have ever had doing this. In terms of the brief training and handling of the horses, our guide was very professional and diligent in making us and the horses comfortable, which I greatly appreciated. He happened also to be a wonderful tour guide,... More

Stopped by for a visit after failed attempt to drive to Monastery of Christ in the Desert (dangerous road washout!)... a peaceful spot in 'O'Keefe Country' w/hiking, horseback riding & family activities for day visitors...also o'night rooms if booked. Nice!
