Location + Surroundings
Based in the peaceful surroundings of San Patricio in Lincoln County, New Mexico, the family-run Sentinel Ranch sits in a lush valley that offers superb views of the Hondo Valley and the Rio Ruidoso. This was the home of world renowned artists, Peter Hurd and Henriette Wyeth, whose work may be seen here. Located between the towns of Ruidoso and Roswell, San Patricio is a historic town where the origins of Lincoln County War architecture can be seen and where Billy the Kid would frequent to meet his Senorita.
The ranch itself is sheltered by tall pinion pine and cottonwood trees, and lies at the foot of the Sacramento Mountains decorated with cedar, juniper, and cacti, all creating a powerful, Old West-style landscape. Guests may catch a glimpse of the elk, deer, cattle, and turkey that inhabit the Hondo Valley or hear the wide variety of birds singing as the sun rises from behind the mountains.
The ranch is just a short drive from hiking in the Lincoln National Forest, a two and a half hour drive from El Paso, Texas, a three and a half hour drive from Santa Fe Mexico, and, for an out-of-this-world experience, White Sands National Monument, known for its dramatic landscape of rare white gypsum sand dunes, is only a one and a half hour drive from the ranch. With Ski Apache Ski resort, as well as the Ruidoso Downs Racetrack less than an hour away, year round activities are abundant. Read More
Guests are treated to a wide range of outdoor activities and attractions to choose from when staying at the ranch. The on-site art gallery showcases years of incredible artwork from the ranch’s owners that portray the essence of San Patricio and its heritage and guests can purchase these originals and prints from the artists themselves for an unforgettable experience. The ranch is within close proximity of the Lincoln National Forest and the Sacramento Mountains that offer year-round adventures including superb hiking and biking trails, scenic horseback riding tours as well as skiing and snowboarding opportunities in winter.
For an insight into the area’s history, guests can visit the Hubbard Museum of the American West and admire the bronze horse statues in the museum’s gardens and the antique saddles. Visitors can also discover how the advancement of firearm technology through the 1830s to the late 19th-century changed the way of life in the Old West.
The Smokey Bear Historical Park is a fun and heartwarming day out for the entire family as visitors learn about how a badly burnt bear cub, known as Smokey, was rescued and later became a national symbol for fire prevention. There is a playground, a climbing wall, and picnic tables throughout the two-acre park as well as fire engines and a fire tower.
