Burnt Well is a working cattle and sheep ranch. We take a few guests on the side as a supplement to our ranching income. Our guest capacity is small, we don't have a staff, we are open all year around, but we don't take guests week in and week out. This enables us to tailor your stay to your wishes, whether you are an avid rider who wants to participate in actual ranch work, you are a beginner and just want to work on your riding skills, or anything in-between.

FULL DESCRIPTION OF LISTING
We are located in sunny, southeastern New Mexico. Guests have said "This is John Wayne country!" "I can't believe how far you can see!! Sometimes 50-60 miles!" "I feel like I'm just visiting family, I feel so at home and welcome here!" "I was actually a valid part of the work at hand!" "It is so-o-o peaceful and relaxing here, my hectic life seems a world away!"
We've been asked, "What does a normal day at Burnt Well look like?" We tell them, "The only thing normal at Burnt Well is the setting on the washing machine!" We don't have set schedules. Flexibility is the word here, and YOU are the focus of our attention while you are at Burnt Well? The only exception would be if there is water problems (windmill, pipeline,etc.) or any other urgent ranch business that may come up, since we are a working ranch first, with no staff. We're it unless you're here and then WE'RE (including you) it!
Come to Burnt Well, get dirty and have some fun, then kick your boots off and relax a spell!! We'll fill your tummy with good country food, fill your days with fun and adventure, fill the air with lots of conversation & laughter and fill your mind with unforgettable memories!

At Burnt Well you will be exposed to our local Mexican food and lots of "Cowboy" cuisine, such as brisket, chicken fried steak, grilled steak and/or lamb chops, and plenty of other hearty country cooking. We eat all our meals together and family style in the main ranch house, or outside around the campfire. There's always PLENTY!! If you leave Burnt Well hungry it's your fault!
We're a simple ranch with simple pleasures such as; good conversation, lots of story telling and laughter, campfires and a night sky full of stars. You may be able to coax Patricia to pull out her fiddle and play a few old cowboy tunes or some sweet fiddle melodies. She may even be able to lure some musician friends out from town for a music night around that campfire under those twinkling stars.
