Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals offers an atmosphere that includes a very rare commodity: PRIVACY ... freedom from being observed or disturbed by other people. No street lights, just star filled nights. No traffic noise, just the sounds of quiet country, the breeze rustling the leaves of cottonwood and sycamore trees. No concrete buildings, just open spaces filled with natural beauty and wildlife at every turn. No rushing elbow-to-elbow crowds everywhere you look. Just the people and animals that live here. No glitz, glitter, or high-toned life style. No big-city worries filled with people you don't trust. Just an old fashioned ranching environment kept nearly as it was 100 years ago. At Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals what you get is folks who still have no reason to lock doors, who trust and respect their neighbors and offer help without being asked. Our facilities are best enjoyed by independent travelers who don't expect to be entertained, who are self sufficient, resourceful folks wanting to experience a simpler, grounding lifestyle. Welcome to Double E Ranch Vacation Cabin Rentals! Double E Ranch Vacation Cabins are located outside the tiny Village of Gila, New Mexico about 35 miles northwest of the historic town of Silver City, home of Billy the Kid. The Village of Gila and the nearby town of Cliff are divided by the Gila River and were settled in 1884. The communities are still very rural with ranching and farming a large part of the local economy. Services in Gila and Cliff include: 2 post offices, a library, an amazing Art Gallery, EMT/Volunteer Fire Department, medical clinic, community center, senior center, K-12 School, "Chucks" gas station, several churches, seasonal fruit and vegetable stands, and several quaint dining experiences. Our average population ranges between 350 – 500 residents. Because the Village of Gila does not have a convenient grocery store nearby, we encourage guests to bring some or all food items with you, especially for shorter stays. The nearest grocery store is located 35 miles away in Silver City. The hotel quality queen bed beckons you to sleep in just a little longer than usual, all snuggled-up in the luxurious Egyptian cotton linens. When you do finally get up, the radiant, in-floor heating will keep your toes nice and warm on chilly mornings and, if you are here during the warmer months, you can count on the AC to keep you cool! Bathroom is complete with full bath tub and shower, plenty of thick towels, and face cloths. Short term guests need only to bring food, drinks, personal items such as face soaps, lotions, etc. Your cabin is provided with complimentary facial tissue, several rolls of toilet paper and paper towels. Double E Ranch Vacation Cabin Rentals was inspired by our desire to share the exceptionally beautiful hidden valley location along Bear Creek, literally 'at the end of the road'. We are adjacent to a 6500 acre wildlife preserve and are a short 20 minute drive to the edge of 3 million acres of the Gila National Forest. The southwestern lifestyle and our love for ranching in New Mexico is our reason for being here. For 18 years, Double E Ranch was a working cattle, horse and guest ranch. The specialty at Double E Ranch was providing our guests with the unique opportunity to experience the undiluted, real sensations of southwestern New Mexico ranch life. The original 'bunk house' and 100 year old ranch house have been lovingly updated and continue to be used for guests from all around the world. Now retired, Debbie and Alan continue to offer you a unique opportunity to experience a taste of life on a southwestern New Mexico ranch, explore a diverse ecological region, meet the recent and ancient past up close. Over 1,000 years ago the Mimbres Indians lived along Bear Creek and the Gila River. Pottery pieces, ancient tools, pictographs and remnants of stone dwellings can be readily found. More recently, legendary characters including Billy the Kid, Geronimo, and Ben Lily roamed the hills, mountains and towns in this area. A more relaxed environment with plenty of privacy... your own cabin, your own time schedule, meals when you want to cook them. With the sun just beginning to peek over the mountain, begin by enjoying that first cup of coffee or tea, absorbing the sights and sounds of what 'peaceful' really feels like. Just about sunset, from your rocker on the deck, put your feet up, watch the mountains change from rocky rust, to stunning, vibrant reds, oranges, yellows while saying 'adios' to another healing day. Take advantage of this incredible location, experience the magic of southwestern New Mexico by using our vacation cabins as your "home away from home" while exploring the entire southwest. Short day trips to the Gila Cliff Dwellings or City of Rocks or overnight in Santa Fe, Old Tombstone, historic Las Cruces or famous El Paso. Breath! You'll easily be able to disconnect from the frenetic race of urban lifestyles. Our fully furnished, self catered cabins contain everything needed to make your experience relaxing, convenient and restful. Our weather in every season is mild compared to most other regions of the country. For guests coming from our northern states, Double E Ranch is a fantastic haven for escaping the bitter cold and snow of winter! The area offers diverse activities, events and places to keep you interested and entertained, year round: Tour de Gila Bike Race, Silver City Blues Festival, art galleries, museums. With lower humidity levels, being outdoors is comfortable nearly every day and the sun shines an average of 330 days a year! There are plenty of activities for you to enjoy on the ranch. Bring your own horse! We've got self-care pens (call us for rates) and a 300x250 enclosed arena with excellent footing. Just outside your cabin door, you have some of the best, most secluded hiking opportunities in the southwest, birding along our privately protected riparian area which is home to more than 250 species of indigenous and migratory birds, amazing star gazing, and exciting mountain biking. In a short 20 minute drive you will have unlimited access to nearly 3 million acres of Gila National Forest making activities such as hunting, rock hounding, exploring Native ruins, and spectacular, exciting horseback riding easily accessible, never running out of new trails to travel!
