Property description

If a relaxing getaway among quiet, natural beauty is what you crave, Two Ponyz Ranch has the 'food for your soul'.

Our luxurious Guest Casita is located on 40 sprawling acres, dotted with pinion and juniper. Just 75 minutes southeast of Albuquerque, Two Ponyz Ranch offers easy access to the impressive Salinas Mission Ruins, the Cibola National Forest, and the quaint town of Mountainair. The brilliant blue skies, fragrant air, and stunning 360 degree views clearly showcase the best of New Mexico.

Whether you seek a peaceful retreat, a horseback riding adventure, a stopping point during your travels, or a tranquil place to hang your hat while your new home is being constructed, Two Ponyz Ranch can accommodate you.


Guesthouse Details: This non-smoking one bedroom unit can accommodate up to four guests. The casita is decorated in an eclectic southwestern style and has such luxurious touches as a jetted tub, kiva fireplace, heated travertine floors, hand carved wood vigas and doors that add New Mexican flavor. A full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances make the idea of staying a weekend even a month a tempting option.
