This fantastic private ranch is over 100 years old, and is located on the most pristine section of the Cimarron River where the fly fishing is so fabulous that it's known simply as 'The Holy Water'!

Just a few minutes to Angel Fire and Red River ski areas and vacation mountain towns. All amenities, private, great for groups and families. Two-night minimum except holidays. 3 night minimum for holidays. Please email or call for Christmas and New Year's plans- special considerations for this week.

Why The Owner chose Eagle Nest

This property offers the finest fly fishing on one of the best streams in the southwest. The historic Ranch House that overlooks this fabulous property is the perfect compliment to this 'private', pristine fish and wildlife area. The property reeks of western heritage and history and is so special that we call it the 'Holy Waters'.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This is the only private property in the Cimarron River Canyon that has a beautiful, historic house and over 1/2 mile of the best fly fishing on the entire river. It is so special and the water is so rich that we call it the 'Holy Water'. You can view fish and wildlife from various viewing locations in the house and hiking, biking, photography, hunting and fishing abound right outside your door!

Relaxing Getaway That Revitalizes

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of 12 friends had a great time staying here. All of us enjoyed the scenery in the back watching birds, deer, ducks, and fish in the river. The hot tub has a great view while sipping on your favorite drink. We had many laughs playing games in the central hallway next to the wood burning stove. The ranch house was clean. We used the kitchen to cook meals for 13 people. The beds were comfortable. We even used the washer and dryer.

We will definitely be visiting again. We are leaning towards making a visit to the ranch house every year.

You should stay there!

  • 5 of 5

It is quiet, peaceful, full of wildlife, a great walk along the river. We are not fishermen, but if you brought a bunch of those types, they would be in heaven. Great kitchen, laundry, lots of beds. I think it can sleep 11-12, with two master bedrooms. I should not tell you all this because it may become too popular and I won't get in next time! Enjoy!

Low flow fishing

  • 3 of 5

We came to fish the Holy Water which was unfishable due to low flow. The VRBO could use some upgrading: Keurig coffee maker, another bathroom downstairs, and Kleenex in the bathrooms. It's a beautiful setting, however.
