FAQs about Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals




NEW! Bring Your Friends Rent the Entire Ranch for a Week!



Yes! You can now Rent the Ranch for a week at Double E Ranch.


What time is check-in and check-out?


Check-in is after 2:00 p.m. Check-out is before 11:00 a.m. Exceptions can often be made as long as you let us know at least 24 hours in advance.


New Mexico Cabin Rentals are set-up for "self check-in” because Debbie and Alan are often away from the office traveling or working the ranch when you arrive. Don’t worry, there will be signs directing you to your cabin, and prior to your visit we’ll provide you with specific directions to the ranch. Your Cabin door will be unlocked, a light outside as well as inside for your arrival convenience. The key and General Information Booklet will be on the dining table, and will include home, office and mobile phone numbers for us should you have any questions or needs that just can’t wait.


What do I need to bring?


All of our kitchens are stocked with plates, glasses, cups, bowls, silverware and most of the other necessities for cooking, including pots and pans, utensils, gourmet spices, and even condiments. Prefer to cook al fresco? Not to worry, we also provide BBQ grill, basic grilling utensils, charcoal (for short stays of a week or less), and lighter fluid. Guests staying longer will need to replace their charcoal and laundry detergent, etc. All but one cabin have full kitchens. The Piñon Log Cabin has a 4 burner stove top, no oven. See specific cabin descriptions for details. We also provide towels and luxurious bed linens in each cabin, but that’s about where it ends.


To completely enjoy your stay, the things you’ll need to bring personal toiletries (don’t forget sunscreen!), food and beverages – including your favorite ground coffee. Be sure to get your sundries on your way here because the nearest grocery is in Silver.


Is Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals a good place to bring the kids?

Some of our larger cabins can certainly accommodate children, ages 6 and up. "The Old Ranch House" is a comfortably furnished large 2 bedroom/2 bathroom house with large screened veranda porch which is very convenient for small families. None of the cabins or the anything else on the Ranch are 100% “child-proof,” and because this is still a working ranch with a variety of large animals on the property, children of all ages require close parental supervision. If you have children and are interested in staying at Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals, please contact us to help you decide which of our cabins would be most appropriate. Typically, our guests are individuals or couples traveling without children.


Can I bring my pet?

Pets of almost any kind are welcome, with the caveat that you discuss it with us first. Because Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals is a working ranch, we have horses, cattle, and our own dogs. Our ranch animals understand appropriate behavior and we need to be assured your pets understand that, as well. If we can work it out, and you do bring your pet, they need to be on leash when outside and never allowed on the furniture in the guest houses. We don’t ask for a 'damage deposit', but we respectfully ask to be compensated for any damage done by your pets, including the cost for removing pet hair torn leather on the sofa. It is recommended you bring your own pet bed or crate.


If you’d like to bring your own horse, we have self-care paddocks available. We don’t offer guided-trail rides. If you are going to bring your own horse, here are some things to keep in mind:


·       We have a 300’ x 250’ enclosed arena with excellent footing. The terrain here is rough, so if you plan on riding out, your hose should be shod if (s)he is not accustomed to this type of terrain.

·       You’ll need proof of a negative coggins. If you are coming from outside of New Mexico, you’ll need a health certificate, too. Be sure to check your state’s guidelines for brining horses home from New Mexico.


What about smoking?


Sorry, no smoking inside your cabin. If you must smoke, past guests tell us that sitting outside in a rocker to indulge is very pleasant. Remember, this is a desert, so please be sure to use an ashtray.


What is the closest town?


We are located in Gila with Cliff just across the river. Services in Gila and Cliff include: 2 post offices, library, EMT/Volunteer Fire Department, medical clinic, community center, senior center, library, Art Gallery, K-12 School, Chuck’s gas station, and several churches.  Just across the river in the town of Cliff, Tammy's Cafe is open 6 days/week, service an excellent variety of home cooked meals.


For all major shopping needs you must to travel 35 miles into the Town of Silver City, where you'll find Albertsons Grocery Store, Silver City Food Coop and Health Food Store, Walmart Super Center, Food For Less and plenty of unique restaurants, museums, antique shops, art galleries, and other shopping.


Cancellation Policy:

Short Term Renters Cancellation Policy (30-60 day stays):

~ Cancellations made 30 days prior to your arrival allows for an 90% deposit. Unfortunately, with less than 30 days notice, we are not able to offer a refund. We are happy to reschedule your visit without penalty, based on availability.


Long Term Renters Cancellation Policy (60+ days):


~ We are a small family owned and family/veteran operated business. We understand that more and more people are planning their vacations well in advance. We welcome Long Term Renters. And, we realize life happens and plans can change. However, the further out you book, the longer that particular cabin is "unavailable" to other renters and cannot be booked.


We hope you will understand our Cancellation Policy for bookings made more than 3 months in advance for stays greater than 60 days in length must be slightly differerent. Please contact Debbie at 575-535-2047 to discuss your options



Anything else I need to know?


There are some cleaning supplies in the cabinet under your kitchen sink or kitchen counter. A washer and dryer are conveniently located a short distance from your cabin. Please be considerate by not leaving your laundry in the machines so that others cannot use. Guests are expected to bring their own detergent, bleach and fabric softener.


This is still a working ranch, and, as with all ranches, you are expected to follow this golden rule: if you open a gate, close that gate.


Even though it may feel like it, you probably aren’t the only guest here. Before you enter the headquarters, a bathroom, or a cabin, please knock.


We make it our policy to respect your privacy. We hope you will reciprocate.
