About the Ranch
The MP's landscape is characterized by the high desert, a stark and beautiful terrain of big, rough forested hills and hidden draws and meadows. It is home to a rich population of elk, gemsbok (oryx), antelope and mule deer. Because of its isolation, the night sky is untainted and bright with crystal clear starscape. The ranch ranges from shortgrass prairie to pinon-juniper woodlands and savannas with trails traversing through them, on which you will ride with the ranch crew. The highest point of the ranch is Brushy Mountain, from where you can gaze out upon layer upon layer of purple mountains disappearing to the west. It sits at almost 6,625 feet, with ranch headquarters at 6,200 feet. Climbing to the top and looking out over the Chupadera Mesa will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of time on the ranch for all.
Two neighboring, separate buildings, the Quincho (an Argentine word for a small house used for asados, or barbecues) and the Bunkhouse, make up the retreat space. They were recently constructed by the ranch owners for their family and special occasions and create an oasis in the truest sense of the word.
The Quincho has two bedrooms, indoor and outdoor kitchens and gathering spaces, as well as a phenomenal view of the open New Mexico savannas stretching to the eastern horizon. The Bunkhouse has a common room, outdoor deck, nine bedrooms and four shared bathrooms. The two buildings are intentionally designed to serve different purposes—the Bunkhouse for sleeping, and the Quincho for cooking, gathering and sharing the day together. This design originates in Argentina, where cooking meat is an experience.
