Property Description

McElmo Creek Guest Ranch is a one-of-a-kind gorgeous guest ranch where the desert Southwest meets the lush irrigated cottonwood creek bottoms of McElmo Creek. The owners brought back to life old homestead structures, painstakingly restoring, each designed and furnished to tell its own story. The ranch is complete with water rights and irrigated fields. Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a truly special property. Water Rights Water rights in proportion to the irrigated fields will transfer. The ranch has approximately 52 acres of irrigated fields with plenty of water. In the arid warm climate of the Southwest, it is possible to get 3 cuttings of hay.
