“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

Not to be missed. Very unique. Variety of accommodations, some very nice, some rustic. Allow time to hike and visit museums. A great place for families, couples, family reunions, and personal retreats.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

Been visiting Ghost Ranch for many years. Accommodations range from rustic to very comfortable and the scenery must be seen to appreciate fully. Hiking trails abound and a plethora of educational opportunities make the place a must if visiting the Southwest.

The rooms are rustic, some more than others. The food is institutional. The ambiance is worth it. The landscape will take you to a peaceful place that you may not want to leave. The staff is very helpful. A great place to get away by yourself, with a friend, or family. Check the catalogue for classes to suit everyone.

Room Tip: The fitness center is the great outdoors. There is no room service.

The artist, Georgia O'Keeffe, lived here for 40 years because she believed it to be the most beautiful place in the world. I agree! Great hiking trails for those who want to move; great Adirondack chairs for those who prefer to just sit and soak up the awesome scenery surronging them. Lodging and meals are simple but not for those who need 4 or 5 stars. Incredible educational opportunities! Check out ghostranch.org.

Room Tip: Best views on the mesa!

Ghost Ranch is a spectacular location, with incredible natural beauty and rustic accommodations that range greatly for price and amenities. There are private bath rooms with standard amenities, but no TVs, where we most recently stayed, and there are lower cost shared bath or camping options. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the quality of service is good. The available options on the ranch for rest, and relaxation include a seasonal swimming pool, seasonal lake front kayak rentals, a 24 hour library, horseback rides, guided tours and miles of trails. Near the Ranch are many more options for exploration including the Monastery of Christ in the Desert, Echo Amphitheater, the Continental Divide trail, Abiquiu Lake and the Chama River. My kids loved the Ranch and can't wait until we can come back.

Wow, what an incredible place! Simple yet clean accommodations, but don’t spend much time in your room, get out and see the breathtaking scenery and landscapes. My son enjoyed the dinosaur museum, my daughter loved the high ropes course and my wife enjoyed a massage in their body works program. We definitely plan to bring our friends and family back to this place!

Went to the Ghost Ranch for a conference. Although the scenery was amazing, the overall summer camp feel was not a vibe that I really enjoy. That being said, if you aren't really concerned about accommodations and like cafeteria style food, the ranch will be perfect.
