Welcome to Double E Ranch


Debbie and Alan


In 1996 Debbie and Alan established the Double E Ranch in Gila, NM. For 18 years they shared this spectacular New Mexico ranching lifestyle with more than 400 folks a year from all over the world.

Now retired, they have decided to enjoy a slower pace, but will continue offering you the 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. Put your feet up on the deck and begin to enjoy that first cup of coffee or tea. Experience the sights and sounds of what peaceful really mean.

We area family operated and run. You'll likely meet our kids and grandkids during your visit. No doubt, you'll begin your visit as guests. We hope you'll end your visit as friends!

Chris Eggleston




After a successful 22 year career in the Navy, Chris Eggleston (our oldest son) joined the Crew at Double E Ranch.

Chris grew up with horses, cowboys and like his dad, shares a deep love of the Old West. He's happy to offer assistance, answer questions.


Kevin Eggleston




Quiet, patient and easy going, our son Kevin somehow managed to finish his teaching degree, and is now the upper level Math Teacher for Cliff School. There isn't anything Kevin can't fix!

Our daughter in law Lori, is amazing! She works full time yet artfully manages all the activities that four children could possibly have. She and our 4 grandsons (Logan not in picture) participate in Ballet Folklorica de Gila.

Logan and Jacob (left) are both 'A' students, involved in scholl spirts, national honor society and FFA. They also help mom by watching Andrew and Zachary, when necessary.

Zachary and Andrew just happen to be the exact same age (twins)! Nearly 8, they are incredibly bright, energetic and always entertaining.

Logan Eggleston




Quiet, patient and easy going like his dad, our grandson Logan is also an "A" student. An expert horseman (he learned that from his Grandpa Alan), he is an important part of the Double E Crew. Whether helping to start colts, running the tractor, sharing guest duties or feeding livestock you can count on Logan to willingly lend a hand.

With excellence in all his scholarly endeavors, Logan earned a full scholarship to New Mexic State University, Las Cruces and will begin studying for a career in Chemical Engineering.
