At Concho Hills Guest Ranch, there is nothing new under the sun…

And that’s the way we like it!

Ranching isn’t just an occupation, it is a heritage.  A way of life based on tradition. An institute where change is carefully examined, and its value tested, before it is accepted.  As eloquently sung by Don Edwards, in the song For Those that Lean to Lonesome: “ It’s all about horses, the cattle, and men, about the country, the work, and the pride…” At our dude ranch you can visit and experience this heritage with us!

Concho Hills is nestled in the foothills of New Mexico’s San Mateo Mountains. This location provides moderate temperatures allowing operation ALL YEAR!  Our dude ranch offers you a true west vacation including: horseback riding, ranching activities, historical tours and a whole lot more!

Our dude ranch accommodations are attractive and very comfortable.  The main, hacienda style, adobe ranch house is always open and where we gather to visit, eat, and relax.  The private guest rooms are a stone’s throw away.  They have modern conveniences: queen or twin beds, tiled bathrooms and independent climate control.  You won’t get lost in the crowd at Concho Hills.  We limited our guest rooms to seven with a maximum occupancy of 14 people.  Take a look on our Lodging page for accommodation details!

Your activities at our dude ranch will depend upon your desires and experience.  Our guests vary from those who wish to participate and learn about all aspects of ranching, animal husbandry, and land stewardship to those who just want to relax.  Our dude ranch offers activities both in and out of the saddle. We wish to ensure everyone has a fun, entertaining, and rewarding stay.  We help our neighbors with their cattle work and they may just drop in to visit with us and talk about what’s going on.  Visit the Activities page to see what you will enjoy!

Fantastic Food!  Meals are served ranch family style around our large dining tables.  Our guests have raved about our delicious food.  Our varied menus focus on traditions foods of the area, from grilled steaks to New Mexico fare.  Visit our Meals page and let your mouth water…


Our rates are reasonable and all-inclusive for most all activities, so you can enjoy your vacation and worry about accounting or how much fun your going to have.  See our Rates page for details.  Also look at our Specials page for special events and celebrations, sometimes including reduced rates.

Enjoy ranching, horseback riding, exploring, and hiking that will allow you to view and photograph the grandeur, beauty, and wildlife of the great Southwest.

We’re open all year, so come anytime, meet new friends, and enjoy Western Living at it’s best and finest.
