favorite_borderGila: Suite in a complex1 BDR • 1 BA • Sleeps 3 • #23005485 to 115 USD/nightA New Mexico Historic Site and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Legendary Ranch was a Million acre Cattle Empire under the steady hand of Englishman Thomas Lyons and his wife Ida Campbell. Today the Ranch Headquarters is a 60 room compound that includes an Old West Saloon, Wedding Chapel, Theatre, Gallery, Bunkhouse and 27 room Main Ranch House. Not a "dude" or working ranch, but an Historic glimpse into the legendary million acre cattle empire. Tour the Main House where Cattle Baron Tom Lyons and wife Ida Campbell lived their lavish lives, then relax in the pool, the Historic old saloon, or enjoy the art and music filled Gallery. As a friend describes "It's like a ride on a very nice old train". The Gate House is a newly renovated, well appointed accommodation perfect for a couple, or couple "plus one", if they are willing to sleep on the couch. King Size four-post bed, Air conditioned, full kitchen, Satellite TV, private bathroom with Jacuzzi. (Two more apartments will be ready next year.) Once you're settled in, time to check out the Ranch. The National Park Service, in their publication "The Cattleman's Empire" described the million acre ranch as "Overshadowing all other ranching operations in the Southwest", and “The L C Ranch remains as one of the last surviving Great Ranch Houses of the Old West”. The cattle, cowboys and million acres are long gone. Cattle Baron Tom Lyons was murdered in El Paso in 1917. An Englishman, Tom Lyons' feudal empire collapsed shortly after his demise. His 27 room adobe mansion, lavishly refurnished, remains along with all the outbuildings of the Ranch Headquarters.
