If a relaxing getaway among quiet, natural beauty is what you crave, Two Ponyz Ranch has the 'food for your soul'.
Our luxurious Guest Casita is located on 40 sprawling acres, dotted with pinion and juniper. Just 75 minutes southeast of Albuquerque, Two Ponyz Ranch offers easy access to the impressive Salinas Mission Ruins, the Cibola National Forest, and the quaint town of Mountainair. The brilliant blue skies, fragrant air, and stunning 360 degree views clearly showcase the best of New Mexico.
Whether you seek a peaceful retreat, a horseback riding adventure, a stopping point during your travels, or a tranquil place to hang your hat while your new home is being constructed, Two Ponyz Ranch can accommodate you.
Guesthouse Details: This non-smoking one bedroom unit can accommodate up to four guests. The casita is decorated in an eclectic southwestern style and has such luxurious touches as a jetted tub, kiva fireplace, heated travertine floors, hand carved wood vigas and doors that add New Mexican flavor. A full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances make the idea of staying a weekend even a month a tempting option.

A relaxing getaway.
I took my wife and two kids to 2Ponyz Ranch to enjoy a nice weekend away from town. It is an easy drive from the Albuquerque area which made for a good weekend trip. The Casita is very clean, quiet, well maintained, and equipped for all cooking needs. My wife and daughter both LOVED the jetted tub. On Saturday morning we decided to go on a hike to the National Forest which is an easy ¼ mile from the casita. We didn’t see another person while on our hike, so it was very peaceful. Also, the terrain is very easy and the ground was soft in most places (It reminded me of walking on a beach). We live in the Albuquerque area and are not used to seeing so many stars at night, so one night the four of us laid down outside to enjoy the nights sky. This is a great place to stay to get away and I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks Karen we will be returning soon.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. I'm so glad you all enjoyed the wonders of nature; peaceful, quiet, night sky, easy access to the Cibola National Forest... that attracted me to the land where Two Ponyz Ranch sits. And thank you for leaving the casita tidy. See you again sometime.
If you're looking for a safe, remote, peaceful, beautiful getaway in the middle of New Mexico this is it! Lots of opportunities to explore in the area, but just fine if you'd rather curl up with a good book and watch the sunshine work it's way across the mountains. And the STARS! Wow.
The hostess was very attentive to making the cute, well kept, well stocked casita feel like your New Mexican home. If we return to the Mountainair area we would stay at Two Ponyz for sure. Loved it! Miss it!
Could not have asked for a better getaway!
Amazing Guest house and amazing hospitality! Very serene setting.
Two Ponyz Ranch was a real find! It is a lovely Casita (Guest House) in the middle of a serene landscape with the view of the Manzano mountains. We were completely taken care of by Karen who offered great hospitality. It was a great home away from home!
