Come and enjoy some peace and quiet away from the lights and noise of town in this old Bunkhouse located 20 miles south of Tucumcari on a cattle ranch. 2.5 miles of dirt road after pavement. Please: no booking requests more than 3 weeks out!

Le logement

Welcome to JX Ranch Bunkhouse - a short 30 minute (20 miles highway plus 2.5 miles unimproved ranch road) drive from Interstate 40 and old Route 66 at Tucumcari, New Mexico. Travelers with horses are welcome! Pets are also welcome - do let us know if you are bringing a pet and read the pet rules please. Note - We ask you to please not request a reservation more than 3 weeks before you want to come - we simply cannot be sure that we can accommodate you any earlier than that and would have to decline the request. Thank you for your understanding.
Note: if you are allergic to wasps know that at times we seem to have them around. Contact us if concerned.

Located on this 7,000-acre cattle ranch, two miles off the pavement, you are assured privacy, peace and quiet away from the noise and lights of town. Here you can enjoy nature from the shade of the JX Ranch Bunkhouse, built by early settlers and was the original Homestead. While we have done some remodeling, we have strived to leave it as authentic as possible; it is not fancy, but very rustic and cozy! Bring slippers; the old wood-floors are cold in the winter-time, hard year-round.

The Bunkhouse consists of two separate rooms, each with its own kitchen, bath and private entrance. Each room can be rented separately from the other, with its own entrance kitchen and bath. If you search for airbnb listings in "Tucumcari, NM" or go to our Profile, all three will show up (Longhorn Room, Cow Camp and Whole Bunkhouse).

The Longhorn Room is the larger of the two - It features the original rock fire-place, three twin beds, an antique wagon-wheel sofa and rocker, a TV, small kitchen area with your basics, and a bathroom with a claw-foot tub used as a shower. There is a connecting door (lockable) to the smaller Cow Camp for easy access when you rent the whole Bunkhouse.

The Cow Camp has two twin beds, a wagon-wheel sofa and TV, and a kitchen and bathroom. The entire Bunkhouse, which comfortably accommodates 5 people (7 if using the sofas), rents for $149/night (no housekeeping).

In the evening, you can watch the wild turkey as they prepare to roost in the hackberry trees down- canyon below the Bunkhouse. You may see a doe with her fawn on their way to water, or a busy roadrunner scooting by with the day's catch in his mouth. The sight of our colorful Longhorn cattle (if they are nearby) will take you back to the time of the trail drives, one of which - the famous Goodnight-Loving Trail - went through the ranch and right past where the Bunkhouse is located. The old trail is perfect for an evening or early-morning hike. At dusk, coyotes call to each other across the canyons and ridges. On a cloudless night, the star-filled sky will take your breath away!

We offer a continental breakfast – your kitchen is stocked with cinnamon rolls, (frozen, as I only get to town every 10 - 14 days), farm-fresh eggs , orange juice, coffee, tea, sugar and creamer. In addition, we provide flour, salt & pepper, cooking spray and vegetable oil for your other cooking needs. You are welcome to bring food staples and prepare your own meals - the kitchen is equipped with a two-burner electric cook-top, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, small refrigerator and a mini-grill. You will find basic cooking utensils - pots and pans, dishes, plates etc. Chairs and table are outside the Bunkhouse where you can sit and eat while watching the sun rise over the Caprock.

We provide a charcoal grill and sitting area outside the Bunkhouse for your enjoyment. We raise and sell all-natural grass-fed beef (no hormones or antibiotics) and usually have steaks or hamburger meat available for purchase. Let us know ahead of time if you want some for your dinner so we can have them thawed out for your arrival. If you want to purchase our beef to take with you, make sure to bring a cooler.

Pets are welcome but are to be kept on a leash when outside, and kept off the furniture when inside as a courtesy to other guests. We appreciate you cleaning up after them around the Bunkhouse. We provide a cat litter box with sand and food bowls and a dog-waste disposal can.

Tucumcari, in its wildest days, was named “Six Shooter Siding”; you will find many restaurants and famous Route 66 Icons and murals. Lowes is the one grocery store - go north on Exit 332 to light, turn left and Lowes is two blocks down on your right. Come back same way and stay on 209.

The small town offers two museums - the Historical Museum and the Dinosaur Museum. Two lakes are within an hour's drive of the ranch; Ute Lake (45 minutes) and Conchas Lake (1 hour) offer boating and fishing. The Billy the Kid Museum in Fort Sumner is an hour's drive, and Palo Duro Canyon with the wonderfully entertaining Texas Play in the summer, is two hours away.

Tucumcari is located on I-40, approximately 180 miles east of Albuquerque, NM and 110 miles west of Amarillo, TX. We are 20 miles south of Tucumcari on State Highway 209, and 2 miles off the highway. See directions.

Accès des voyageurs

Guests are welcome to go for walks or hiking on the ranch (at your own risk). Beware of rattlesnakes in the summer months and stay away from thick brush. Gorgeous views, great hikes, nice evening walks. NO smoking!

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Minimal interaction, we meet and greet, visit a little, answer any questions, and may run into each other in the morning. Guests are assured peace and quiet and privacy.

Autres remarques

If you get here after dark, keep in mind that out in the country we have bugs, and I would highly suggest you keep the light off in the room while unloading your car, so you don't attract flying insects into the room as they are attracted to light.

Règlement intérieur
Départ avant 10:00

Please read our "Welcome to the JX Ranch Cabin" when you arrive. It contains suggestions and "house rules" to make your stay enjoyable.

When conditions are dry, due to extreme wild-fire danger, smoking is not allowed inside or outside, except inside your vehicle and using your ash tray. No open fire or grilling outside when conditions are dry/windy. Check with us first. Water is a scarce and precious commodity in this area: we ask that you keep this in mind when using water.

When using the Charcoal grill (only if it's not too windy...), please keep it on the table outside and do not leave it unattended. Empty ashes into the provided ash bucket, and brush/clean the grill for the next guests (tools are provided).

Pets are allowed, but must be kept on a leash when outside. We appreciate you keeping them off the furniture as a courtesy to later guests who may be allergic to pet hair. Please pick up any waste around the Bunkhouse; a "Pet Waste" basket is provided as well as baggies for the cat litter box.

Mimi is a wonderful host and very interesting person to get to know. Her life story is fascinating. We met Tom the last day of our stay and he is equally as friendly. We loved our hike up to the cap rock and the stargazing at night was incredible! We enjoyed the delicious steaks from the ranch cows. The whole experience was great! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing stay.

Mimi and Tom are graciously sharing their piece of heaven on earth. We found the views to be stunning, the summers night to be cool, and the solitude to be rejuvenating. The bunkhouse is authentic and rustic, yet surprisingly comfortable and cozy. All the needs for making ourselves at home were met, far surpassing our preconceived expectations. Our brief visit with Mimi was delightful; we are still talking about her authenticity and amazing story. Communication with Mimi before the visit was quick, informative and accurate. If you eat beef, don't miss the opportunity to try Mimi and Tom's grass-fed steaks. Thankfully the evening breeze was light that we were able to charcoal the steaks on a small grill that was provided. It is no exaggeration to say that these were the best steaks we've ever had. We plan to visit again, but we will do one thing differently... stay longer!

First, I'll add something new that may help others: T-Mobile LTE works perfectly here. If you want to go off-the-grid-but-not-really, you can do it here. Lastly, this place rocks. The room has everything you need and nothing you don't. The views are inspiring, and of course you're finally away from the city so at night you can lay down a blanket and watch the stars. Mimi and Tom were great hosts, and we learned a few interesting things about ranching while we were there.

If you want an adventure, to reconnect with nature and create memories of a lifetime, this is the place for you! The Longhorn Bunkhouse is a gem where you can relax, unwind, take a beautiful hike, see wildlife and find out just how many stars light up the night sky! Mimi could not have been a better host. Everything was perfect and the grass fed steaks and hamburger were melt-in-your-mouth delicious! We can't wait to come back!
