The Guest Ranch is off the beaten path (but not to far from town) and offers a perfect opportunity to kick back and relax, go for a hike or visit nearby ruins. Every time we visit---we begin to plan our return trip.

My husband, 4 children and I stayed here for 1 night and wish it had been more! I didn't know what to expect as we drove farther and farther down a pretty desolate road. We finally arrived at the ranch and it was the perfect change of pace from Crested Butte where we were staying. The Pioneer House could not... More

My husband, Steve and I spent 5 days at Canyons Of The Ancients Ranch. There are so many great things to say about our stay, I'll need to trim the list! Gary and Ming were so gracious and helpful and invited us up to their home to watch the sunset. We had fresh eggs every day during our stay. We... More

While planning a two-week vacation to the Four Corners region, we stumbled upon a link to the Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch. Timing is everything, as this turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! From our initial contact with Ming Adams, owner, we knew this would be a wonderful experience. Ming and Gary were the... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in June at this working ranch with a few guest cabins which is located 17 miles west of Cortez. We could not have picked a better place for this occasion. The hosts -- Garry and Ming Adams were just wonderful. Garry welcomed us soon after we arrived and we soon found he... More

The ‘Ranch’ is a unique experience. Set in a canyon 17 miles from the highway, it is easy to quickly forget the ‘busyness’ of everyday life. The lodging is upscale rustic. Chickens and sheep abound, a reminder that this is ‘country’ at its best. We (2 couples) stayed in the Eldon Stone House. Two very comfy queen beds and a... More

From the very moment we arrived at the ranch, things felt magical. Driving down the long driveway to our cabin we were greeted by about 100 sheep and goats... even some babies. Then we passed the chickens that were out wondering around along with some friendly cats. Because the ranch was so remote, I warned my kids that internet may... More

This stay in a log cabin was truly memorable. It's on a working farm so there's plenty of activity and animals around. The cabin is comfortable, well furnished and eclectically decorated. The shower is also great and comfortable to use. We had a lovely breakfast prepared specially for us with farm produce. Service was also great with the owner, Ming,... More

On my very first call to Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch, Gary was so helpful, words can hardly describe. We had never visited that area of Colorado and I must had asked Gary a dozen questions or more to assist with our car trip itinerary as well as how to optimize our time nearby and while staying at his...

My first visit to the Ranch was back in July of 2013. I’ve been returning about twice a year since then. Nestled against Sleeping Ute Mountain beside McElmo Creek, the Ranch sits in a perfect place to see and do so much. And you can see and do it while getting to know two of the nicest people on the...
