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. I stayed four nights and five day, I wished I could have stayed longer. The day before I left I was able to use the hot tub and also I got a great massage. I really recommend this place for people who really want to get away from all the stress.

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 Thursdays and that we were welcome to use the kitchen facilities of the lodge to prepare dinner there, we purchased dinner makings (melt in your mouth beef tenderloin, baking potatoes, fresh asparagus) at a great little independent grocery (Bullocks') in Truth or Consequences, NM, en route. While the potatoes baked and the grill was prepped, I had a most marvelous and professional massage by the resident masseur (and all-around handy man), Doug. The back aches of prior weeks disappeared. Bliss. After a leisurely and informative dinner shared with the lodge's delightful owner, Catherine Wanek, and Doug, we three made a B-line for the outdoor hot tub, and soaked and sang to our hearts' content. We recommend Lodge Room 3, with a private balcony overlooking the gardens and very comfy king-size bed. Breakfast was superb, served up by another male staff member who came for a visit and stayed on. We didn't have time to hike local trails et al, but look forward to that on our next visit! Stephanie Maley

Room Tip: The rooms that will accommodate up to 6 or 8 individuals would be crowded, and the single bathroom oversubscribed. We liked Lodge rooms 5 and 6 (w/ balcony)!

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.

Room Tip: # 3 has an outside balcony.

if you like history and wanting to get away from it all this is the place for you. This former gold mining town in the mountains past Hillsboro, New Mexico, once had a population of 7,000 people in its glory days.
The bank building is still standing as a are few other buildings. Plenty of places to to walk and hike and just let the rest of the world go by.
The owner is great.
You can prepare your own meal, or have meals in Hillsboro.

Room Tip: The lodge rooms are all different and you need to see several to make your selection. The lodge is a very old building. The owner Catherine has a beautiful house for rent out of adobe and for a family reunion she has another house that could hold a large group.

Nestled in the Black Range mountains of the Gila National Forest, this cool, quirky lodge is a real find, but you might need your GPS to find it.
Although this lodge is a bed and breakfast, it accommodated our large bike group and prepared an evening dinner for us as well. If you're staying there on your own, the kitchen will be made available for you to cook your own evening meals; otherwise, you'll have to drive several miles to find a restaurant.
The lobby is a large cavernous room filled with comfy large furniture, historic photos, art and artifacts. The rooms upstairs surround a central common area, which is perfect for meeting and socializing. All rooms have private bathrooms and some have access to decks.
The acreage around the lodge is fit for exploring and discoveries will at first confuse and then delight, as there are some earth-made, free-form structures in the process of being hand-built.
The staff are locals from this tiny town of about 35, so the lodge seems to be the major employer. And everybody is always doing something interesting that they're willing to explain as you peak over their shoulders.
Although this trip was a group bike ride, we plan to go back and enjoy some of the beautiful hiking trails in this area.

Room Tip: They have two buildings: the lodge and a newer structure across the road by the river. We only were in the lodge, and I would prefer to stay there as it is very comfortable and that's where breakfast is served.
