If a relaxing getaway among quiet, natural beauty is what you crave, Two Ponyz Ranch has the 'food for your soul'.
Our luxurious Guest Casita is located on 40 sprawling acres, dotted with pinion and juniper. Just 75 minutes southeast of Albuquerque, Two Ponyz Ranch offers easy access to the impressive Salinas Mission Ruins, the Cibola National Forest, and the quaint town of Mountainair. The brilliant blue skies, fragrant air, and stunning 360 degree views clearly showcase the best of New Mexico.
Whether you seek a peaceful retreat, a horseback riding adventure, a stopping point during your travels, or a tranquil place to hang your hat while your new home is being constructed, Two Ponyz Ranch can accommodate you.
Guesthouse Details: This non-smoking one bedroom unit can accommodate up to four guests. The casita is decorated in an eclectic southwestern style and has such luxurious touches as a jetted tub, kiva fireplace, heated travertine floors, hand carved wood vigas and doors that add New Mexican flavor. A full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances make the idea of staying a weekend even a month a tempting option.

Stunning mountain and mesa views that to this day never cease to amaze me. Quiet, natural setting that adjacent to the Cibola National Forest which protects Two Ponyz Ranch from over development.
Was able to build from the ground-up building that reduced the carbon footprint through on-demand heating, radiant-heated floors, and grid-tie solar electric.
I took my wife and two kids to 2Ponyz Ranch to enjoy a nice weekend away from town. It is an easy drive from the Albuquerque area which made for a good weekend trip. The Casita is very clean, quiet, well maintained, and equipped for all cooking needs. My wife and daughter both LOVED the jetted tub. On Saturday morning we decided to go on a hike to the National Forest which is an easy ¼ mile from the casita. We didn’t see another person while on our hike, so it was very peaceful. Also, the terrain is very easy and the ground was soft in most places (It reminded me of walking on a beach). We live in the Albuquerque area and are not used to seeing so many stars at night, so one night the four of us laid down outside to enjoy the nights sky. This is a great place to stay to get away and I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks Karen we will be returning soon.
Wonderful casita to spend a quiet weekend in Mountainair. Perfect location for birdwatching and star-gazing.
The Ranch was so nice and confortable. A greate Location in a awesome Landscape. I will gladly return. Karen was a very friendly Host. Greetings from Germany.
My husband and I had a wonderful time! This casita is in such a beautiful, peaceful area. The drive in off the highway was fun, and allowed us to see a small herd of pronghorn and fawns. Once at the casita we were greeted by Karen, who showed us around and made us feel right at home. The place is decorated very native to the area, and we loved it! Karen has not left anything out when it comes to amenities. We were pleasantly surprised by how well the kitchen and bathroom were stocked with necessities, and even some non essential extras. We enjoyed relaxing on both porches, depending on the time of day, and loved watching the horses, jack rabbits, hummingbirds, and even a coyote. The nighttime star gazing was amazing, and we made sure to enjoy it each night. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to enjoy a longer stay! Thank you, Karen. We will be back!
I have stayed at Two Ponyz a number of times over the years and it feels like I'm coming home every time I arrive. Karen, the owner, is the consumer inn keeper. The casita is immaculate. Her eye for detail leaves nothing to chance. If you are looking for value, look no further. Two Ponyz has it all.
This was the second year that my wife and I have spent a weekend at 2Ponyz. We spent our time reading, cooking, eating, listening to music, sleeping, napping, lounging, watching the weather change... This is an ideal place to rest, relax, and re-create. I spent most of my time stratigically positioned on the patio to take hundreds of photos of the birds. Last year we counted around a dozen species, this year a little less - yes some of those birds were photographed at least a hundred times... The interior is exquisite and extremely comfortable. I enjoy cooking so I loved the kitchen. The hospitality is very welcoming. The road from the hiway might be intimidating for city folk, but relax, you really can't go wrong. If its the first time you had to open and drive through a gate, you really shouldn't have waited this long. And it just might give you the reason you've been searching for to buy that 4 wheel drive. We're going back...oh yeah!
