NAN Ranch Chauffeur's Quarters is a 2-bedroom apartment with one king and one queen bed, full kitchen, living room, vintage-style bath, and big cedar deck overlooking the ranch headquarters and mountains beyond. On the ranch, enjoy solitude or follow ranch roads to canyons, cliffs, hilltops, or to the tree-lined Mimbres River. Return to shady historic lawns, a refreshing pool. Tomorrow, visit the nearby Gila National Forest, Cliff Dwellings, City of Rocks, or quirky Silver City.

The space
The Chauffeur's Quarters really was home for the 1920s men who lived above the 3-car garage and drove and cared for cars for Mrs. Mamie McElroy, who built the Big House (Owners' Home). Today, with the addition of the deck, it's a favorite of NAN guests who enjoy the views and the privacy of its rear entrance, back lawn, and hidden rose garden. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Y-Bar NAN Ranch headquarters was once the center of a self-sustaining agricultural property, and is still a working ranch. In the 1920s, a "modern" Mediterranean revival residence and extensive landscaping were added next to the 1912 bungalow-style Rancher's House, and today we share our shady gardens and broad lawns, pool courtyard, fountain patio and magical ambience with guests in the Rancher's House and smaller cottage, bunkhouse cabin, and apartment accommodations. The grounds are a romantic setting for weddings and other parties, and a spacious adobe barn easily transforms to the sparkling party place of your imagination.

Where you’ll be

Faywood, New Mexico, United States

The Mimbres River in southwestern New Mexico is a little-known green and leafy branch of history and refreshing water and shade, flowing from high in the Black Range of the Gila National Forest. Faywood is a tiny community along the river, with only a post office and a small Catholic church. The closest full-service grocery stores are in Silver City or Deming, though there is a small store at San Lorenzo, a few miles upriver. The Gila National Forest is accessible to Ranch guests via ranch roads, and public National Forest access by highway is north on NM 61, then north on NM 152/35 through Mimbres. The City of Rocks State Park is nearby, and the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument is a short scenic drive through the forest. Silver City is a quirky, arty community of miners, ranchers, artists, outdoorsy people, and retirees from far and wide – and its Western New Mexico University museum is home to the extensive NAN Ranch Collection of prehistoric Mimbreño artifacts and cultural remains, excavation within a half-mile of ranch headquarters.

Though Faywood and the Mimbres River are a world apart and seem far from modern America, we are an easy 2 ½ hours from the El Paso, Texas, International Airport and flights from anywhere. For those on a road trip, we’re under 4 hours from Tucson – and historic Tombstone and other scenes of the Wild West; Albuquerque is just over 4 hours, Santa Fe just another hour from there.
