  • The place is superb, amazing view and amazingly well stocked library (O'Keefe yes, but also Ansel Adams and many books on other artists as well as people of the region). Horse wrangler Emma leads a great ride and tells fantastic stories. Lodging and food as you'd expect from a ranch, though fresh berries for breakfast was a nice touch.
  • We went really far out of our way to get here for some good trails and didn't find it to be worth our trip. The scenery on the ride was nicer than what we saw on the hike. It's a pretty strange place.
  • I spent a week here on a photo retreat. We stayed at the Casa del Sol which is on the Ranch but about 2 miles away from the main complex. It was beautiful and very secluded. It was an easy drive to all the little towns in the area, and we enjoyed exploring the Ranch itself. I especially loved a tree that Georgia O'Keefee was known to have painted.
  • This is a really special place for connecting with your spirituality. The grounds are vast and clean and there are about 6 different hikes you can enjoy directly inside of the ranch. The service was really nice although I waited in line to pay my admission for about 15 minutes. I understand that folks want a thorough breakdown of what to expect when visiting, but I just wanted to pay and go on my merry way. The food was pretty expensive for not being so exceptionally tasty- the chicken was rather dry and the corn not very flavorful. You can tell, though, that the staff take great effort to do the best they can. My husband and I had a wonderful excursion of chimney rock trailhead and I highly recommend for the golden hour and blue hour. The hike back down is short enough so that you aren't chancing with the light. I recommend this place for a simple day trip.
  • Ghost Ranch is beautiful. I took the Chimney Rock Trail. It was moderate in difficulty with beautiful views. The highpoint was the Landscape Tour by Kate Coleman,;she is fun, enthusiastic and informative. The landscape was utterly breathtaking , and we were shown a comparison between Georgia O'Keefe's paintings and the actual physical sites. I agree with other reviewers about how place is run. We called several times about reservations and were told, "not needed". When we got to the visitor center, we were told "booked up".i don't know what to say....
