The SpaceThe cabin is located on our LazyKo Ranch and situated with beautiful views of Cooke's Peak and the Little Florida range.
The cabin is an airy, lofted, 400 sq. foot private space. It's warm and inviting with it's wood paneling and ceramic tile floor. There are lots of wall sconces and a beautiful copper light and fan fixture in the center area to provide soft, relaxing lighting. The cabin is decorated primarily in a Southwest style along with some of our eclectic collection of Kachina's and a 1950's pinball machine.
The bathroom is separate, but just feet, from the cabin. It's paneled and tiled like the cabin with lots of mirrors and lights and a large central ceiling fan. A new, large shower stall was recently added and there is lots of hot water available. We supply all the amenities you may need such as fresh towels, shampoo, conditioner, bath wash and bar soap and a hair dryer.
A new gel infused memory foam Queen bed provides a restful night's sleep. Bedding is always fresh and an electric blanket is available for those colder winter nights. Just added is a twin size air bed suitable for children or adults as well as an additional twin bed in the loft (note: for everyone's safety must be 10 and older to stay in the loft which gives an extra twin bed so 4 could stay. The loft has only a 3 ft head clearance. The downstairs is no problem for all ages there are 2 beds downstairs.).
With both a separate heater and electric fireplace, central ceiling circulating fan, and window air conditioner, the cabin should always be comfortable no matter what the weather is.
A high-definition 48" flat screen television and separate sound system provide entertainment as well as a DVD player. Wi-fi is also provided along with a desk for your laptop or tablet.
A beverage refrigerator is stocked with a variety of water and cold drinks for our guests enjoyment. A Kuerig machine is available and stocked with a variety of coffee and teas. The cabin also has a large microwave for those needing one.
We are pet-friendly and welcome our four-legged guests. We also offer a unique service for those traveling with horses, mules and donkeys. Six large paddocks are available for those animals for a small additional charge. Guest AccessGetting to the LazyKo is easy on a paved road with easy on off access to I-10 east or west without adding distance to your trip. We are on old State Highway 549, used before I-10 was built. Excellent restaurants are 3.5 miles (Akela) and 5.5 miles (Adobe Deli) away. Deming is 15 miles from the LazyKo with many restaurants and shopping to choose from.
Our circular drive provides easy turn around for trucks and RVs as well as horse trailers of any size. There is plenty of parking space.
Guests are able to access most parts of the property for enjoyable walks and access to our friendly animals. There is a 30 x 75 ft pet run for your pets as well. There are nineteen fenced acres and a gate to over 700 more acres, but not all is accessible due to thick areas of Mesquite. Interaction with GuestsWhether you want to explore the Deming area or just relax on our ranch, we welcome the opportunity to make your visit the best experience we can. The cabin is very private but guests are always welcome to interact while we feed and take care of the various flocks and herds!
We welcome the opportunity to share the rich old Southwest history of the Indian wars in this area. The LazyKo is located within a few miles of the deadliest part of the Overland Trail. We can help you plan day trips to historical sites as well as several state parks. There is a bird watching area that is rich in many species of birds.
The area is rich in things to do but at the same time is very laid back for those just wanting to relax and unwind. For those that are creative, the LazyKo and surrounding area can be very inspirational for photographers and artists. The NeighborhoodLocated on State Highway 549, the Old Las Cruces Highway, we are easy to find at mile marker 12, with easy on and off East-West access to and from I-10, without adding distance to your trip.
We are close to Adobe Deli (3.5 miles) and St. Clair Winery (8 miles) and Deming has lots of restaurant's to choose from. We are close to Rockhound State Park (16 miles) and Western enthusiast's will love the Luna County-Mimbres Museum (15 miles) in Deming.
City of Rocks State Park and Silver City are nearby for a great day trip. Steeped in the history of the Old West are Cooke's Canyon (Massacre Canyon) and Fort Cummings (25 miles). South of our ranch finds Columbus, NM, Pancho Villa State Park and Palomas, Mexico. When in Palomas, shopping and lunch at The Pink Store is a must (great restaurant and shopping in 1 building). You park on the US side and walk a block to the store or we can call ahead and they will pick you up in a golf cart and bring you back, ask for details on travel to Mexico.
We also have a small country style store on the property offering distinctive gifts and collectables and hand-crafted designer pet beds and pet toys made here on the LazyKo. We are known in the area for our excellent eggs. Getting AroundWe have ample areas to park whether you are traveling by car, moving van, RV, or towing a horse trailer. Our circular drive allows even the longest truck and trailer easy egress with no backing up necessary. A vehicle is necessary to get around for dining or sight-seeing. Other Things to NoteOur main "crop" is fresh, free-range eggs from our three flocks of Heritage breed chickens. Our focus has been on rescuing both horses and donkeys over the years and we currently have a herd of seven donkeys, five horses, one elderly pony and five goats living on the property.
During the day our animals provide lots of opportunities to interact with them and they love visitors.
A unique dining experience is just down the road at The Adobe Deli Steakhouse. St. Clair Winery is about eight miles West from us and is open daily for tastings and sales.
Two rockers on the cabin porch provide a relaxing way to watch the sunset over Cooke's Peak or star-gaze later on while enjoying the star filled night. Excellent star gazing with very low light pollution where the ranch is located.
