Overview

About the property

Unique handbuilt log cabin on the Gila River

The Pond Cabin at Bearpaw Ranch is perfect for a small family or 2 couples. It is a beautifully crafted log cabin with two bedroom. Our guests like to just sit on the porch in the shade and soak in the serenity. It sits on a gentle creek which feeds one of our 4 ponds, with the Gila River just beyond that. It has an antique wood stove for chilly winter nights. The kitchen is all decked out in antique style and you can learn to do some creative baking with the 1927 gas range. It does have a modern apartment size frig, and we've managed to provide modern conveniences such as toaster, microwave, coffeemaker, etc in the small kitchen without sacrificing its rustic charm.

The two full-size beds don fluffy white sheets on excellent quality mattresses.

This cabin is situated at the end of the road...the last cabin on the ranch. The serenity and solace is the most mentioned quality that our guests refer to. Imagine having a tree-filled park with a pond just outside your front door. The pond has an island where you can lounge the day away on the hammock. Hundreds of species of birds are spotted there and along the river just beyond the pond. Or row around the pond on the boat, throw in a line, and see if you can catch a bass or catfish.

When you want to wander a bit you will find that the ranch is great middle point in which to explore everything that the Gila Wilderness has to offer. We are just a short drive down from the Turkey Creek entrance to the wilderness, and the Mogollon/Glenwood area is just 20 miles up Hwy 180. Silver City is a beautiful 35 minute drive away where you will find numerous museums, coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, and shops.

Ideal for hiking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing, Bearpaw Ranch is also close to Bill Evans fishing lake and a short drive up to the Gila wilderness. Our property lies on the Gila River and so you will have complete access. If you want to raft or tube, you can put in here and we'll pick you up down at the bridge.

We have a large barn and fenced field if you are bringing your horses. Ideal for hunting in the fall and winter. The wilderness begins a few miles up the road. Perfect for hiking and climbing, and bird-watching. There is a wild-bird preserve just a few miles south of us. Of course the bosque here on the property affords great access to spotting numerous bird species.

We are located just a few miles from the Gila Wilderness. Our property straddles the Gila River and the bosque is delightful for bird-watching. You will enjoy walking about the property and watching the wildlife on and around our 4 ponds. You will have complete access to the river and you can enjoy the hiking, rafting and bird-watching that the river and its habitat provide.

In addition, ours is a premier location for star-gazing. New Mexico is the only state in the union with night light legislation and Gila is one of the darkest places in the country. The property has a large flat hill that is a premium spot for night sky observation and we have hosted several amateur astronomers over the years.

Bearpaw Ranch also has barns and fenced fields for horses and is an excellent place to stay with your horses. We also offer horseback riding and mule-driven buggy rides.

Silver City is 30 miles to the south and has many art galleries and restaurants. Bearpaw Ranch is a great place to stay during the Blues Festival, Fiddlefest, the World Class bicycle races, or the Wild West Rodeo. The hotels in Silver City fill up, but you can take the short drive out to the Gila and rest in the quiet and peace, refueling for another fun time enjoying Silver City's great events.

In the mountains north of Silver City you can visit the old western town of Pinos Altos, and continue up to the Gila Cliff Dwellings. A visit to the copper mines is also a must, with a stop at Lake Roberts on the way!

To the northwest of us is historic Mogollon with its art gallery, antique shop, and museum. Near Mogollon is the little village of Glenwood, with the state fish hatchery and the famous Catwalk. The Catwalk is a favorite hiking spot with a lovely picnic area.

There is plenty to do in the area, but many folks find that they are content to walk around the property, visit our horses, watch our ducks swim around in the pond, or just sit and listen to the quiet. This is a perfect retreat if you just want to get away...far away from the rat race. This is real out-west country living.

Bearpaw Ranch is perfectly situated for exploring the area. A short drive up Turkey Creek Road and you are in unspoiled wilderness. 30 miles north is Glenwood and Mogollon, both great destinations for exploring small town and ghost towns of the desert southwest. 30 miles south and east is the popular Silver City with her museums, galleries, and excellent eateries. Beyond Silver City is the Gila Cliff Dwellings (a MUST SEE), along with the old mining town Pinos Altos and Lake Roberts. Most of the nearby day trips are an easy 30 minutes from Bearpaw Ranch. Then you come home to your cabin to peace and quiet where you can stroll around the property and unwind. Or just sit on the porch and listen to the country sounds.
