Purchased by Ted Turner in 1992, the Ladder Ranch is located in southcentral New Mexico and covers an incredible 156,439 acres (245 square miles). Ladder Ranch contains four tributaries of the Rio Grande River – the Animas, Seco, Palomas and Cuchillo streams. These streams support abundant flora, including sycamores and cottonwoods, and fauna such as Chiricahua leopard frogs and sensitive Rio Grande cutthroat trout, which will be soon restored to the streams.
Ted Turner’s Ladder Ranch house exudes the “authentic” Southwest, complete with Ted’s personal touches, representative of his countless experiences and adventures. Upon entering this five bedroom, three bathroom ranch house, you’re instantly taken by its luxuriously comfortable and unassuming ambience, characteristic of its longtime, devoted owner Ted Turner.
Your stay at the Ladder is truly customized to your wants and needs, with meticulous attention given to even the slightest detail. Ted’s house includes a fully-equipped kitchen for our on-site private chef service to prepare all meals exclusively to your taste for an exceptional dining experience. Your private house manager will be available at all times to assist with any special requests during your stay.
