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. The staff are infinitly helpful, friendly and the breakfast is superb. Owner Catherine Wanek is a delightful person and a source of information on all things sustainable: Solar, strawbale, adobe etc.
We will definitely be back for another stay.
