We stayed at the Black Range Lodge for 2 nights, and wished we could have stayed longer! Katherine was so welcoming, and filled us in on the history including the forest fire several years back. This gave us context for what we saw on the drive over the mountains to Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument and Silver City. Incredible drive....

Thanks for your kind words, and thanks for visiting us! We particularly enjoyed all the laughs at the dinner table, and your coincidentally meeting up with neighbors from Tacoma Park. I'm pleased that you found the Geronimo Springs Museum in Truth or Consequences worth the visit. (It has everything from the stone age (dinosaur bones) to the space age (Spaceport...

The black range lodge is a wonderful place to spend the evening. We arrived about sundown which was none to soon after driving over the Black Range from the Gila Cliff Dwellings-which by the way, is a drive second to none. In retrospect, the drive would have been even better had we taken it about an hour earlier since it...

My wife and I stayed here in October, 2013 and were delighted by the warmth of the welcome we received by Katherine, the hostess and owner, the beautifully restored lodge, the spotless accommodations, the wonderful meals, and the quiet, peaceful location. There is a well marked trail out of town (population 24) into the high country that surrounds the Lodge...

We had a thoroughly wonderful time at the Black Range Lodge. The lodge's owner, Catherine Wanek, and her staff - Tom and Bonnie, and spa director Gary - were terrific in every way. If you value a fully-engaging experience with the lodge's patina of age and somewhat rustic surroundings; with centralized proximity to the beautiful countryside of the Black Range,...

We just returned from an over night stay at the charmingly rustic and historic Black Range Lodge in Kingston, New Mexico (1 1/2 hour drive from Las Cruces,NM). Pet friendly plus! Acres of wooded grounds for a city pup to sniff and explore and even the kitchen is not off limits (a delicious breakfast is included—freshly baked muffins, organic eggs...

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Lodge, one at the beginning and two at the end of a backpacking trip in New Mexico. The Lodge is located in the tiny community of Kingston at the eastern edge of the Aldo Leopold Wilderness. It's an old building, very rustic and Western feeling. The rooms are comfortable though not opulent. The...

We had only two nights at the Black Range Lodge, but we felt like we were leaving home when we left. Catherine Wanek and her crew are wonderful, fascinating hosts. The interior of this old lodge was a delight. We had a king-sized bed on the second floor with a balcony. Slept the best I slept on our whole 10-day...

Thank you for your kind words about the Lodge. It was a treat, listening to the harmonious interplay of you three accomplished songwriters sharing your music, and humming along with the tunes I knew. It's this kind of serendipity that makes the inn-keeping profession so personally rewarding.

I went to Kingston in February. The main reason for my trip was to get work done. I stayed in one of the suites with a balcony. The breakfast every morning was delicious, and the workers are always very friendly and helpful. I loved the fact that it is a quiet and peaceful place and I actually got work done....

My husband. a friend, and I recently broke a 10-hr trip from Santa Fe to Presidio, TX with a night at the Black Range Lodge, per a friend's recommendation. It was a totally delightful experience, though (or perhaps because!) we were the only guests on a weekday night. Upon learning that the "only cafe in the region" was closed on...

The Black Range Lodge is a trip into the Past; a laid-back woodsy atmosphere with the modern conveniences you need, but none that you don't. (Leave your cellphone at home). Hot tubs, massage, pool table and a large library are available, and you are right at the edge of the vast Gila Wilderness for limitless hiking, horseback riding and fishing....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Black Range Lodge is an eco-friendly Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center in Kingston, New Mexico, on the eastern slope of the Continental Divide. Nestled in the foothills of the Gila National Forest, the Lodge offers easy access to its wild, natural beauty. From our door, a short walk in the clean air takes you along a creek, into the shade of tall Ponderosa pines. A short drive to Emory Pass takes you to a spectacular vista. Bring your mountain bike, and/or binoculars for bird watching. Centrally located in southwestern New Mexico, Kingston is an easy day trip to Spaceport America, Elephant Butte and Caballo Lakes, the hot springs of Truth or Consequences, White Sands, Las Cruces and old Mesilla. To the west, a spectacular drive through the Gila Wilderness takes you to the Gila Cliff Dwellings, the City of Rocks, Silver City, historic Pinos Altos, Faywood hot springs, Rockhound State Park, and Deming wineries. ... more   less

“We stayed in room #6, which had a balcony with a gorgeous view of the mountains to the west, but we didn't spend too much time on the balcony so next time we will probably opt for a room without to save a few dollars. Each room looked comfortable, I suggest asking for a suggestion when you stay to meet your needs.”
