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 keeping 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 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. Being outdoors is comfortable and sunny an average of 300 days a year!
There are plenty of activities for you to enjoy. 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. Alan has taught the basics of Mounted Shooting to hundreds of folks over the years along with critical techniques for improving your results, as well. Just outside your cabin door, you have hiking, birding, star gazing and mountain biking. Sometime in the near future, you will have unlimited access to nearly 3 million acres of public lands (New Mexico State Land, Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service) making activities such as hunting, rock hounding, exploring Native ruins, and horseback riding easily accessible! All this and you don't even have to leave the Ranch!
No fences for our chicks and ducks! At Double E Ranch, they really do rule the roost! You'll see them in the horse pastures to alfalfa field, providing us with just about 2 dozen eggs a week. As our way of welcoming you, we'll put a dozen eggs and some grass fed Double E Ranch beef in your refrigerator!
