About NAN Ranch Cattle Company, LLC
The Y-Bar NAN Ranch's owners are the Burford and Lang families, descendants of Bill and Clara Hinton, who operated the ranch from 1949 until their passing in the 1980s. Though we were raised away from the ranch and have worked "city" jobs, we call the ranch home, and want to share its wonders with our guests. Family members are on hand to welcome and show you around, to answer your questions, and to make sure you have what you need in this wonderful house.

Why NAN Ranch Cattle Company, LLC chose Faywood
No place rivals the Mimbres River Valley for light, atmosphere, a sense of peace, a thrill of adventure, a chance to challenge and discover oneself. In the special verdant spot where the NAN's homes and facilities lie, there is a comforting awareness of the blending of prehistory and history, of communities and individuals accustomed to both hard work and reliance on nature's abundance. The NAN Ranch's quiet, remote beauty is regenerative.
What makes this Apartment unique
Whether you want quiet and solitude, a leisurely visit with nature, or rigorous hiking, trail running, or bicycling, your time at the Y-Bar NAN Ranch will be fulfilling. We can confidently say that there is no comparable property, anywhere, that is so open to guests' personal visions for a fulfilling holiday from the outside world. Public parks and preserves are full of other adventurers, but the NAN is yours to share with only a handful of others, and there's so much space and variety you need never see another guest unless you wish to. Just as important to most of our guests is that this historical working ranch is neither resort nor "dude ranch": we don't "entertain" you, schedule you, or crowd you. You design your experience. Though you're in one version of heaven just staying at the NAN Ranch, you're also close enough to make day trips to the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, Gila National Forest, City of Rocks State Park, Silver City for fine dining and fine art shopping, La Esperanza Vineyard just up the road for wine and sunsets, and other interesting and sometimes quirky corners of our neighborhood. The Y-Bar NAN Ranch offers a variety of rentals for a almost any kind and size of group. Here, we have priced The Rancher's House only. See our other rental listings or for information on other options.

Beyond the NAN, easy outings abound, from scenic driving into and through the Gila National Forest, to visiting the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, to picnicking at the City of Rocks State Park. Plus, Silver City's casual, welcoming attitude, art galleries and museums (including WNMU's museum featuring the NAN Ranch Collection of archaeological artifacts and prehistoric art), as well as it's quaint/funky mining-town-turned-retreat vibe make a visit to town an unexpected treat.
But we think your activities ON the NAN property's nearly 50,000 acres of river valley, pasture, canyons, and grassland will be the highlight of your trip. Hundreds of miles of dirt and rock roads await your hike, bicycle outing, or hacking venture. The quiet serenity of our sprawling lawns and gardens or a swim and sunning by the pool round out a day on the ranch. You have the luxury of planning your days -- or not. No "activities director" or itinerary interferes with your holiday.
NAN Ranch's historic adobe homes, barns, and corrals – nestled in the same level green alcove of the valley that resisted, then nurtured, then defeated a native people before there was America; that resisted, then nurtured, now again resists the modern challenger – bring its visitors back to the near edge of human experience. Here is visual, tactile, philosophical, and even spiritual substance that fosters a confrontation of our dominance of the landscape, yet proves its necessity. Without repression of nature, without the destruction that came before and the technology that stands outside, could we contemplate our questions, examine our remorse, consider reparation? At the NAN, we can – and we can even do it around a campfire, under the Milky Way.
