New Mexico is a haven for the unexpected. A place for those who seek to follow their own path. It’s an attitude. A way of life. It’s adventure in its truest form. And, it's waiting for you!
Welcome to Double E Ranch Vacation Cabin Rentals! We are situated along the southwestern edge of the legendary Gila National Forest, just 30 miles from historic
Silver City, New Mexico.
Double E Ranch Vacation Cabin Rentals was inspired by our family history of cowboys, western lifestyle, and our love for ranching in southwestern New Mexico. We believe in cowboy values and preserving the western way of life alive.
For 18 years, Double E Ranch was a working cattle, horse and guest ranch. The specialty at Double E Ranch was providing our guests with the unique opportunity to experience the undiluted, real sensations of southwestern New Mexico ranch life.
Now retired, they have decided to enjoy a slower pace, but continue to offer you a unique opportunity to experience just a taste of life on a southwestern New Mexico ranch. Your own cabin, your own time schedule, meals when you want to cook them. With the sun just beginning to peek over the mountain, begin by enjoying that first cup of coffee or tea, absorbing the sights and sounds of what "peaceful" really mean. Just about sunset, from your rocker on the deck, put your feet up, watch the mountains change from rocky rust, to stunning, vibrant reds, oranges, yellows while saying 'adios' to another healing day. Take advantage of this incredible location, experience the magical enchantment of southwestern New Mexico by using our vacation cabins as your "home away from home" while exploring the southwest.
Breath! You'll easily be able to disconnect from the frenetic race of urban lifestyles. Our fully furnished, self catered cabins contain everything needed to make your experience relaxing, convenient and restful.
Our weather in every season is mild by in comparison to most other regions of the country. We have nearly 330 days of sunshine with very low humidity. The area offers diverse activities, events and places in the area to keep you interested and entertained.
In southwestern New Mexico, there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy during any season. Bring your horse! We've got self-care pens (call us for rates), 300x250 arena with excellent footing, a roping chute, and calves. If you have always wanted to try Cowboy Mounted Shooting, this is the place to begin.
