Guest Reviews

Below are guest reviews and photos from visitors to Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch. We have hosted guests from all over the world and pride ourselves on offering a uniquely tailored experience. We welcome any comments from those of you who have had the opportunity to spend time at our ranch.


We have ridden all over the West – from Canada to Arizona and Iowa to Idaho – but have not enjoyed such spectacular scenery and wildlife as we have here. Meris is an excellent wrangler & guide and we have truly enjoyed the warm hospitality of Harry and Diana. We cannot say enough about the great food Seth prepared. He is a marvel. Thanks, too, to Casper, Shadow and Buck for the miles and miles they carried us so patiently! This has been a memorable vacation and a perfect 10th Anniversary!

For more than twenty years I have wanted to go to a dude ranch and I cannot tell you enough how happy we are that we picked Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch. We will always remember your kind hospitality, the great rides and the breathtaking sceneries and of course the good food.

A dream come true! From our childhood we remembered horseback riding as difficult and dangerous. You proved the opposite. You believed in us. You made this a fun and lovely experience. We will bring these feelings and memories with us for the rest of our lives.

What a fantastic time we had with you at your piece of heaven up in the Gila! We shall not soon forget your wonderful hospitality and the amazing riding in such a gorgeous location. Seth’s cooking was delicious and it was so great to have time all together in the evening with Clinton for our singing and fun. The birthday memory will go down in history!!!

Thank you for the most delightful ranch experience. Our New Mexico vacation certainly has been enchanted due to all of your efforts. Apache cabin superb, food outstanding, horses and rides terrific, the hospitality first rate. We have run out of words to describe the scenery and each and every one of you went out of your way to make our visit wonderful.

This was our third time on the ranch and it was certainly the most brilliant one – as difficult as that seems to be after two lovely holidays here! We had great rides on your lovely horses and we all will miss you and Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch thoroughly – so: hopefully until next year!

We all had a wonderful time – just as we did last year, but with new experiences and memories to take home. Max and Theo are already begging to come back and I’m glad, because I love it too.

I loved the new trails we went on. And I loved playing the guitar with Clinton and the Fourth of July party. I also love Seth’s food.

Second time on the best horse Thunder!!! Gigantic hugs to Thunder and the other horses. Best second trip ever!

What an unbelievably special place, run by unbelievably special people. When we left I-25 and headed into the hills for Geronimo Trail, we had no idea what a truly wonderful adventure we were embarking on. The two hour drive in was well worth it to get to your little piece of wonderland. We got an immediate feel for the ranch as we rounded the bend at Wall Lake and were greeted by a massive herd of elk, who had placed their calves in the center of the herd for protection. What a sight! The isolation of your beautiful wilderness was only part of what made our visit so special. The rides were gorgeous, long and interrupted only by the opportunity to share lunch with friends and rest the horses. Although Kay and I have been to a couple of other guest ranches, we have never had an experience like the one at Geronimo Trail. The horses were terrific, but most importantly, you folks and the staff were truly special people, who clearly love what you are doing and did everything in your power to make our stay fun and comfortable.

From beginning to end, this has been a wonderful experience and a dream come true. When we drove up and got out of the car, we were greeted by Harry and Diana’s hugs. We knew this was going to be a special place. Everything from the cookies and delicious meals (thanks Seth!) to the riding and dancing (thanks Meris!) to the hiking and drum playing …chick-a-boom! (thanks Harry!) to the serenading and guitar playing (thanks Clinton!) to the smiles and history lessons of this area (thanks Diana!) and to the horses (all of them, but especially Casper and Lightning!), we deeply appreciate and thank you all!!! The time we spent with you will always be special for us both.

I am a 72 year old woman who has always been a westerner and just didn’t think I would ever get to see the real thing, this is it. The ones who made it all happen for me will never be forgotten, Harry, Diana, Meris and Seth (and Buck). I’ve made life time memories here with you.

On the drive in from Beaverhead, Harry told us that once he saw the Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch, he knew ‘This was the place. It just felt right’. My son Jackson and I shared that feeling, which only grew stronger as we continued our stay. A trip to the Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is good for the soul… a chance to slow down, connect with the people around you, to become one with the incredible scenery, the fabulous horses, the simple pleasures in life. To be able to experience all this while introducing my son to the beauty of the American southwest, as my dad did before me, made this an adventure I will never forget.

– Chip from California

This was our first visit to New Mexico and our first experience of western-style riding and both well exceeded our expectations. From our arrival until our departure we received the friendliest of attention and felt completely at home. The accommodation and the food were first class and the evening entertainment was memorable, especially the campfires under the stars. We came of course for the riding and this will long remain in our memories. The scenery was rugged and magnificent, and ranging from mountain top to narrow canyons without ever having to cross a real road or even see another living thing, was a real experience.

Lovely place, lovely people, lovely horses! We had an enchanting time and I hope to come back.

Trés agréable séjour. Merci beaucoup pour votre gentillesse.

– Britt & Jean-Pierre from France

This week has been outstanding. The Wranglerette (Meris) took us to the most dynamic and scenic places that we have ever seen. Words cannot describe the beauty of the wilderness. Top of the World, Bear Claw Canyon, the place where Geronimo grew up as a child, Ant Hill and many places we cannot remember the names. The food was delicious, the campfire conversation was terrific and the horses were outstanding.
