  • Description

    Description

    We are a male couple that lives on a ranch with our dog. The ranch is on the high prairie in the middle of the Clayton-Raton Volcanic Field. This is a dormant area. The volcanoes are numerous and beautiful. It is 25 miles from Raton, New Mexico. We are far away from noise and light pollution, in a very peaceful setting. Although it is remote we do have excellent internet. It is a 640-acre ranch and we lease the pastures for cattle grazing. We have free-range chickens so we are not comfortable with other pets. Being a working ranch there are always projects and maintenance.

    We previously lived in a university town and rented rooms to international students. We enjoy learning about other cultures and sharing our own. I am from a Hungarian family that moved to the US after WWII and my husband's family homestead this ranch over 100 years ago.

    It is like living in a park and we love to share the experience with others. It is a safe place to center, contemplate and create art.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Guests from big cities are shocked by the big sky and open spaces and the absence of traffic. Going to town is inconvenient, so we make do with what we have. We love to learn about others and their cultures while we sit and watch the mountains, distant storms, sunrises/sunsets, or starry skies. This is a unique way of life in a quiet rural setting and I am happy to share some of my Hungarian cooking too.
