Walnut Grove Ranch
We had a wonderful "back-in-time " weekend. It was like visiting Knott's Berry Farm again. The level of historic detail was amazing. The owner treated us like family. Can't wait to return.
Quiet Getaway in the Mountains
We enjoyed our stay. Our younger family members had fun exploring, seeing all the animals & playing in the beautiful backyard. The adults enjoyed the cool mountain air of the mornings & coffee on the patio. A great weekend to "unplug" & spend time with family!!
Property was amazing! Kids loved feeding the animals, playing and hiking!
Becca was more than accommodating and easy to work with when we had questions! Our experience was great with 4 families sharing the house! We definitely plan on staying here again!
Thank you for choosing Walnut Grove! It is a special place! We look forward to having you here again!
Wonderful & unique house
We had a wonderful family vacation. The house was large enough for everyone to have their own space when needed. Had some snow which we all enjoyed. Kids loved the poker table & we enjoyed wildlife. Easy access to Lincoln & Ruidoso. Owners left autographed books that were written by family members. Would highly recommend this for a large family 😊
Loved everything about it!!! Very homey!! Scenery is amazing!! Very relaxing!!! Management is very helpful and was there for whatever we needed!! In a secluded location which we liked! Interesting history to the house! Everything we needed was provided! Will definitely be back! Thank you!!!
The town of Lincoln is actually a State Monument. Most of it is preserved and you will learn about The Lincoln County War, Billy the Kid, Sheriff Brady and Pat Garrett. Old Lincoln Days features Billy The Kid Pageant in August. While there enjoy lunch at the Dolan House or a fresh brewed beer at Bonito Valley Brewery.
