The Black Range Lodge is an eco-friendly Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center in Kingston, New Mexico, on the eastern slope of the Continental Divide about 45 minutes southwest of Truth or Consequences. Nestled in the foothills of the Gila National Forest, the Lodge offers easy access to its wild, natural beauty. From our door, a short walk in the clean air takes you along a creek, into the shade of tall Ponderosa pines. A short drive to Emory Pass takes you to a spectacular vista. Bring your mountain bike, and/or binoculars for bird watching. Centrally located in southwestern New Mexico, Kingston is an easy day trip to Spaceport America, Elephant Butte and Caballo Lakes, the hot springs of Truth or Consequences, White Sands, Las Cruces and old Mesilla. To the west, a spectacular drive through the Gila Wilderness takes you to the Gila Cliff Dwellings, the City of Rocks, Silver City, historic Pinos Altos, Faywood hot springs, Rockhound State Park, and Deming wineries.

The owners of this Lodge are hypocrites! They advertise the beautiful forest scenery and wildlife and then TRAP and KILL Bobcats! They left the animal in the leg hold trap for two days before killing it! Don’t stay there! You will support murdering innocent animals.

We found the Black Range Lodge on Tripadvisor and called immediately to book the place, we are so glad that we did! Gary and Katherine were wonderful hosts, and Gary cooked breakfast both mornings and included his homemade bread... to die for! We enjoyed our room as the entire place was authentic, warm and inviting! What a wonderful experience! Thank you Gary and Katherine!

Great place. Gary and Katherine are wonderful hosts. We stayed for two days and had homemade bread with breakfast both mornings. Good hiking close by. We drove to Hillsboro one day and had lunch at the Hillsboro General Store and then stopped by the Black Range Winery store for tasting and wine purchase. Both excellent. No restaurant close for dinner so we got groceries in Hatch before came to the Lodge and fixed our dinners in the spacious kitchen.

We stayed in Room 6 that had a lovely balcony with table and two chairs and nice view. The bathroom for this room is right outside the door but labeled as "our" bathroom so we had privacy. Shower and gigantic old tub for those who need bubble baths. You should probably ask if the bathroom is ensuite. The whole lodge is right out of the old wild west - not touristy but authentic. There is a 3-prong outlet in the bathroom but not any extra outlets (that I could find) in the bedroom. Rustic bedroom but extremely comfortable bed. No TV but this is a getaway place. Wifi is sufficient for texts but you have to have wifi calling to make phone calls. Rooster and chickens abound in their fenced area and Rooster crows quite frequently! Breakfast was delicious - eggs, bacon, oatmeal, and Catherine's Amazing Bread with lots of homemade spreads. We opted to have a dinner one night (extra charge) because the only cafe is 9 miles away and has limited opening times. Dinner was great! Greek Chicken with Beans and Rice plus Catherine's Amazing Bread. If you are active, lots of hiking and sights, but we are car sightseers and plenty of old history and sights to look at. The big town of TorC is less than an hour away and has a Walmart. Where the Hillsboro road mets the interstate, there is an RV Grocery store for immediate needs. The hotel kitchen is 1850s meets 1950s meets the 21st Century. An attraction in itself. Since the owners were away, we didn't get a massage but they recommended the one next door (Sherry) who offers a mind meeting body massage which we liked. Hillsboro has plenty of local crafts for sale (we got the Honey) and a beautiful horse picture from the Museum. I am so sorry I didn't get to the Vineyard Wine tasting Room - heard so many positive comments about them. BIG THANKS to Rachel and Mike who were so kind, considerate, and helpful to us old folks. They are the types of young people who have manners and are respectful. Since our visit was great, they made it super-great. If you are a guitar player - you have a surprise waiting for you (bring your guitar!).

My wife and I recently booked 3 nights at the Black Range Lodge for some R&R. Initially, we discovered it on AirBnB, but found it a much better option to book directly through their website and avoid all those extra fees. We visited in early July, which is when you'll find the monsoons. We had mid 60s all week with intermittent rains. The climate was perfect for us. We came by way of Silver City (which happens to be a fun place to visit!) and therefore had to travel through Gila National Forest. The drive was incredibly beautiful. We live in the desert, so this was a refreshing change. The lodge was great. It's a rustic old home with room for about 10 guests (my best guess). The floors are creaky, but that adds to the charm. There's a fun game room and the highlight for us was just spending time chatting with other guests. They get a regular mix of really interesting people which made for many an enjoyable conversation. Breakfast is provided (eggs, bacon, and toast). They have some chickens (and rooster!) which though a bit loud at times, also adds to the charm. Gary makes the bread fresh nightly. The area is pretty secluded. There are no stores or restaurants in Kingston. That was just fine for us. We did have a lot of options for hikes which were spectacular. This is a friendly community. Truth or Consequences is about an hour away and Elephant Butte has a nice lake which is popular - $5 for the day with great amenities. I could not recommend the Lodge highly enough. The hosts are incredibly kind. And that mulberry tree!

This is located in the middle of no where but had relaxing qualities and lots of wild west charm. The host and hostess were the most friendly and treated you as family versus a customer. Little disappointed in the type of breakfast that was served for a place called a B&B. Great location to be in when heading to the Gila National Forest.

A group of us on a motorcycle ride stopped here for the night. There is no food services in town but the owners cooked dinner and even went and brought in beer and wine for us during out one night stay. They did an excellent job taking care of us.

Been here twice for music camps. Always have a great time and get a good rest. Food's great if a little fancy for me, but there's lots of choices so you'll be just fine. Lots of wildlife in the area- saw my first javelina here.

This is a great getaway from the noise, hustle and bustle of the 21st century. The hosts, Gary and Catherine, are extremely nice and hospitable and very accommodating. Our room was in the corner with it's own balcony surrounded by greenery, bamboo and cedar looking out towards the mountains and the back window overlooked the greenhouse. The room is located in the original 1880s portion. The only sounds were chickens cackling, roosters crowing and occasionally the wind stroking the very large wind chimes that would emit a low, vibrating bong. Truly wonderful! The Lodge is located only 9 miles from Hillsboro which sports a little winery where you can sample and buy wine and enjoy a nice repast of cheese, crackers, bread or what have you.Across the street is a wonderful antiques store with a gregarious owner who if you stay and chat will regale you with interesting history of the area. The Black Range Museum is currently closed undergoing some restoration but will re-open again soon. We visited it a year ago and found it truly fascinating. If you want to explore further, you are only a few miles from Lake Valley, another "real" ghost town where many of the original residents of Hillsboro and Kingston came from following the silver. The school house in Lake Valley is a blast from the past as is the Kingston school house. Back in Kingston, there's the Kingston Clay works where potter Eric Brown will invite you to have some coffee or cocoa and set a spell on the porch. His work is very good. I purchased one of his mugs that have an artistic rendition of the mountains surrounding Kingston which I love. If you want a full dinner, you can either travel 80 miles round trip to Truth or Consequences or just bring your own fixings and use the Lodge Kitchen.They have microwaves and a fridge where you can keep your food. Since my husband and I are small eaters, we did the cheese and meat boards at the Winery which was fine for us. Breakfast at the Lodge was yummy with bacon, fresh bread made from flour ground in an old flour grinder in the kitchen, fresh oat meal, eggs from the chickens mentioned earlier and other goodies. A truly lovely place - quiet, restful, and just plain country.

What a lovely place to stay in the NM foothills. The motorcycle ride on 152 from Silver City is beautiful and the road is really fun to ride. The lodge has so much history and the hospitality is top of the line. Love the landscape with the chickens and two large friendly cats about too! This was the first time we stayed at a B&B and we will for sure throw this type of stay into our future adventures!
