CASA GRANDE    Take a step back in time and experience turn-of-the-century luxury. Once Ted Turner’s private quarters, Casa Grande, a renovated 25,000-square-foot stone mansion, blends Southwestern accents with 1900s grandeur. As you navigate through the marble column hallways, you’ll feel transported to an elegant 1920s soirée. This historic home boasts a billiards room, renovated chef’s kitchen, and conservatory. Casa Grande is available to book per room, or as a full buyout.

COSTILLA FISHING LODGE    Costilla Fishing Lodge is a wonderfully secluded getaway, located 45 minutes from the Main Lodge. Tucked away in the high country at 10,000 feet in elevation, Costilla Fishing Lodge offers direct access to untamed wilderness and fishing lakes. Breathe in the crisp alpine air and soak in the stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range as you cast for Rio Grande cutthroat trout. Constructed using the property’s own timber and stone, this solar-powered eco-friendly lodge is certified, LEED Silver.  Enjoy incredible views from the expansive porch, relax in front of the grand stone fireplace, and enjoy meals from a dedicated chef. Costilla Fishing Lodge is available to book per room, or as a full buyout.

TURNER HOUSE    The newly renovated Turner House exudes old-world grandeur with elegant interiors, fully renovated bathrooms, and cozy common areas, both indoors and out. With 10 guest rooms, many with fireplace sitting areas, coffee and beverage bars and housing the Vermejo Spa, Turner House is sure to be a favorite place for you and your guests to relax.


Named after famed Los Angeles Times publisher Harry Chandler, founder of the illustrious Vermejo club whose membership once included Herbert Hoover and Cecil B. DeMille, the recently remodeled two-story four-bedroom cottage is a charming example of Southwestern grace. Chandler features a King Suite and a Single Queen Suite downstairs, alongside a welcoming living room and wet bar. Upstairs, it has two Single Queen rooms with private baths.

BARTLETT COTTAGE    Renovated to emulate Casa Grande’s elegance, the two-story five-bedroom Bartlett Cottage is an ideal option for an intimate gathering of friends or family. The cottage is equipped with a wet-bar, coffee station, and mini-fridge for your convenience, paired with a comfortable living room and fireplace. With four King Suites and one Double-Queen Suite, Bartlett’s spacious bedrooms and bathrooms add to the luxury of this lavishly furnished home.

GOURLEY COTTAGE    Sitting in dignified solitude on a well-manicured lawn, Gourley Cottage is comprised of four queen bedrooms and one room with two twins.

PENNZOIL COTTAGE    The scenic four-bedroom cottage has spectacular views of the Vermejo Valley. This private house set back from the main lodge is the historic home of the property’s physician.

MAXWELL COTTAGE    The quaint three-bedroom, three-bath, Maxwell Cottage includes a kitchenette and a large side yard with expansive views of the property.
