Enjoy our wilderness luxury guest casita

If quiet, natural beauty, and relaxation are what you crave, Two Ponyz Ranch has the “food for your soul.”

We’re a spacious 40-acre ranch located approximately ten miles southwest of the quaint town of Mountainair and just 75 minutes southeast of Albuquerque. Two Ponyz offers a real taste of New Mexico’s best—brilliant blue skies, freshly fragrant dry air, and stunning views that stretch unobscured for miles.

Two Ponyz Ranch is situated among plentiful piñon and juniper on reddish land that rolls and climbs toward the Manzano Mountains, the dark hills of Loma Parda, and an expanse of flat-topped mesas. Whether you seek a peaceful retreat, a horseback riding adventure, a stopping point during your travels, or a tranquil place to hang your hat while your new home is being constructed, Two Ponyz Ranch can accommodate you.

Astronomers like dark clear skies and New Mexico is known for that.  Here at Two Ponyz Ranch we have a good level place for them to set-up equipment in an environment free of traditional street and household lighting.  We are proud to offer stargazers a Bortle Scale Class 1 for viewing.  The photo was taken here at Two Ponyz Ranch during the winter and is of the Triangulum Galaxy. At 3 million light years from Earth it is the most distant object visible to the naked eye from a dark site.

Take a look around our site and check back often for updates and specials!



"Interested in stargazing?"  

"Come experience the dark night skies of Two Ponyz Ranch and the greater Mountainair area!  Measurements of night sky quality (SQM readings average 21.65) confirm how dark this place is, which makes it a wonderful location​ to take in the stars and get a clear view of the cosmos.  Nearby Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (Abo, Quarai, and Gran Quivira) offer occasional public night sky programs - check their website for dates.  The Monument, managed by the National Park Service, was designated as an International Dark Sky Park in 2016. So come visit, relax, and take in the wonderful night sky."
