Do you need to get out of town and get-away from it all (job, phones, noise, traffic, people), but camping just isn't your thing? Our newly constructed 600 square foot casita is just an hour southwest of Roswell, New Mexico. We can promise you little to no traffic (maybe 4 or 5 cars a day…if you're lucky), no cell phone service (unless you walk up to the top of the hill), and no TV with depressing news (there is a DVD and CD player if you want to bring your own music or some movies). There is an abundance of wide open spaces to hike or bicycle (horseback riding is available at $35.00 an hour/per person with a 2 hour minimum, by appointment only with Kim), loads of peace and quiet, and an occasional visit from the local wild life. Feast your eyes on the cattle and sheep grazing on the distant hillsides and savor the beautiful New Mexico skies that spread like a canopy over it all. The nights are spectacular as a blanket of stars unfolds, unhindered by intruding lights. The warm and welcoming casita has a fully equipped kitchen plus a barbecue grill (charcoal or gas). Feeling adventurous? There's a campfire cooking area where you can grill a cowboy sized steak or toast a marshmallow! Just don't forget your food…it's a long drive to the grocery store (steaks or other available cuts of 'Chesser natural' beef or lamb are available for purchase)!
After a long day, the comfy queen-sized bed beckons and promises a restful nights sleep. The loft area has two twin beds, and the sofa turns into a queen sized bed to accommodate more guests. The casita has a full bath and a washer and dryer to meet your needs. Relax on the covered porch and enjoy the outdoor picnic table.
Biscuit and Gravy, our border collie and corgie will be here to greet you and will be happy to keep you company in case you get lonesome.
Chesser Ranch's Casita Retreat is the perfect couples or family retreat. Give us a call and reserve the casita for some well deserved time away!
Dogs are welcome at an additional fee of $13.00 per dog/per night fee and must be tied or kenneled at night, kept off the furniture and always under your control. Cannot be allowed to run free, this is a sheep ranch....moreless

About the owner: Kim, is a lifelong cowboy from a long, family ranching tradition. He was born and raised on this ranch and not only has a love of this way of life but a greater love of people. His wife, Patricia, is also a native of New Mexico and has used her decorating talents and gifts making the casita a true haven of retreat.
Why the Owner Chose Roswell: Kim has lived on this ranch his entire life and Patricia their entire marriage, since 1978. After diversifying the ranch in 2003 to a working guest ranch, there were many calls wanting to rent the guest house (people not wanting to stay in town or in a hotel. In 2010 they decided to build the 'casita' with a full kitchen for overnight, weeklong or monthly guests. Their first rental was a snowbird from Minnesota the entire month of January. She had beautiful 70 degree weather while she was here!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The simple, peaceful country life is what we live and enjoy and desire to share with others. Our beautiful New Mexico skies are the topic of conversations the world over. No intrusion of city lights, traffic, sirens, telephones, etc. just pure peacefulness. You will hear an occasional bawl of a cow and calf or ewe and lamb, birds singing and other nature sounds.
