El Paso lodge description

Imagine a magnificient 6,500 square foot Adobe Hacienda on top of the Heuco Mountains overlooking El Paso, Texas. Nestled within a 10,000 acre ranch (16 square miles) with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, two Spanish courtyards one with an adobe fireplace the other with a Margarita bar, a fabulous deck, a commercial kitchen and spacious dining room with large dining table for twelve. Three lounge areas with fireplaces provide comfortable conversation areas. Saltillo tiled floors and Navajo rugs add charm and warmth throughout the whole home. Recently remodeled and decorated in a western motif it's completely private with stunning views from virtually every room.

Easily accessible, Mile High Hacienda is close to all of the El Paso & Juarez Metroplex. With national parks, hiking, shopping, and historical areas nearby, Mile High is a perfect setting for your visit to the El Paso area. Only 25 minutes from the El Paso Airport and downtown area, however you'll feel like you're a million miles away. Serenity and privacy are the comments we hear the most from our previous guests.

Horseback riding with a professional guide and/or ATV rentals can be arranged in advance for those who want to have a true western experience. After all, a ten thousand acre (16 square miles) ranch is yours to explore and enjoy. Imagine the thrill of seeing Mule Deer, cattle, roadrunners, and other birds of West Texas in their natural habitat.

                      Atop the Hueco Mountains at almost 5,700 feet, Mile High Hacienda, is the highest house in Texas. With a 360 degree view encompassing two countries and three states, you'll experience legendary southwest sunsets, and a breathtaking nighttime view of the lights of the El Paso-Juarez metroplex and evening skies and stars.

                      Mile High Hacienda is only a 25-minute drive from El Paso International Airport. The Hacienda itself is a sprawling 6,500 square foot rustic ranch style adobe located within a 10,000 acre ranch (17 square miles). This makes Mile High a very private home that is also easily accessible to the city of El Paso. El Paso is the 17th largest city in the USA and the safest city over a half million.

                      It's five bedrooms range from king size to twin and an additional Stone Cottage for two is available. A spacious dining room served by a commercial kitchen creates a pleasant and comfortable environment for business meetings or dining. For socializing and entertaining we have a large bar room, a margarita patio bar, adobe walled courtyard with exterior fireplace as well as a deck built out over the cliff with an incredible view of the mountains and valley below.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About: Greetings! I'm CJ Johns, a rancher, running cattle in some of the toughest country in the USA, and I wouldn't have it any other way. If you are here visiting I'd love to have you experience this wondrous country of mine. Some of my personal western collection is displayed in this home for your enjoyment. Mile High Hacienda was designed to give you the unique flavor and experience of this part of the Southwest. I hope you'll love it as much as we do.

                      Why El Paso:
                      This was originally a large ranch adobe home that sat next to a 10,000 acre operation that I had previously bought. Rather than see it be bought and built into something uncharacteristic of the area, I purchased it. After completely rebuilding, restoring and remodeling Mile High Hacienda, it is now available for you to enjoy. With the ambience and solitude of the high mountain desert and the convenience of a city, Mile High Hacienda is truly a one of a kind find.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                      Views, views, views. 360 degrees of views from the top of the high mountain where Mile High is located. The stunning sunsets from the deck or the colorful Margarita bar, are argumentatively the best in the Southwest. When the mule deer come in to water in the late afternoon it is a truly breathtaking event. Guided horseback rides are offered with advance notice as well as ATV rentals nearby. If you like hiking the Hueco Tanks State Park is only 6 miles away. The Guadalupe Nat'l Park and Carlsbad Caverns are down the road. Spanish missions are in the Rio Grande Valley.
