the Black Range Lodge - a Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center in Kingston, New Mexico
Escape to the Mountains... Relax, Restore, and Explore the Gila National Forest
"The beauty of the Black Range cannot be described by man, for at times, especially after a rainy season, with its forests, flowers, and wild animals, it is a perfect paradise."
-- "Uncle Jimmy" McKenna, Black Range Tales
The Historic Black Range Lodge
Step into the old west when you enter the Lodge's spacious lobby. The original brick construction dates back to the 1880s, when the Lodge housed miners and cavalry. Its massive stone walls and log-beamed ceilings were built during the 1930s.
Nestled in the foothills of the Gila National Forest, the Lodge offers easy access to its wild, natural beauty. From our door, a short walk in the clean air takes you along a creek, into the shade of tall Ponderosa pines. A short drive to Emory Pass takes you to a spectacular vista. Bring your mountain bike, and/or binoculars for bird watching.
Centrally located in southwestern New Mexico, Kingston is an easy day trip to Spaceport America, Elephant Butte and Caballo Lakes, the hot springs of Truth or Consequences, White Sands, Las Cruces and old Mesilla.
To the west, a spectacular drive through the Gila Wilderness takes you to the Gila Cliff Dwellings, the City of Rocks, Silver City, historic Pinos Altos, Faywood hot springs, Rockhound State Park, and Deming wineries.
Furnished for comfort, the Lodge invites you to relive Kingston's wild and wooly past, with modern conveniences. All guest rooms and suites have private baths, thick towels and cozy comforters. We offer free wi-fi and free phone calls across the USA, plus an outdoor hot tub, a pool table, and massage and spa services.
A heart-healthy breakfast is included. Our guest houses are wheelchair friendly, and well-behaved dogs are welcome.
