About Us

Changes in the wake of COVID-19

Our low guest counts paired with the vastness of our properties mean guests were "social distancing" before that term became part of our everyday vocabulary. We've always focused on connecting people with nature. Giving guests acres and acres of wide open spaces and gently guiding them to find transformative moments in the outdoors. During this phase of cautiously re-opening, we've implemented many protocols to help ensure health, safety and peace of mind for our guests. Here are a few of the things we are doing:

  • Vermejo will host a limited number of guests and groups at Casa Grande, the Cottages, and Costilla Fishing Lodge.
  • We have updated our cancellation policy to allow guests whose travel plans have been affected by COVID-19 to feel more comfortable in making a reservation with us. Confirmed reservations may cancel their current bookings up to 48 hours before their arrival and have 100% of their deposit amount applied toward a future reservation or refunded, until further notice.
  • All guest arrival information and paperwork will be delivered to guest room prior to guest arrival and all check out paperwork will be completed electronically over email.
  • Guests will be provided with telephone and texting communication to the Front Desk to minimize in-person interactions.
  • Our self-guided activities have been enhanced with added signage and maps to make them easier than ever to access.
  • Guided activities will resume with guides leading guests from a separate vehicle, wearing facemasks as recommended by the CDC and maintaining a safe 6' distance from guests.
  • Activities equipment and vehicles are being sanitized after each use.
  • We've adjusted our dining areas to allow more space between tables and added private and in-room dining options.
  • Once guests depart their accommodations, we are allowing rooms to wait 24 hours before being cleaned and thoroughly disinfected including laundering all bed coverings and comforters, and completely sanitizing the space.

More details about our COVID-19 procedures are available on our website www.tedturnerreserves.com.

When Ted Turner purchased Vermejo in 1996, his goal was to restore and preserve the native ecosystems that support the diversity of life on our planet. Now, a generation later, Ted Turner Reserves, Vermejo is over 550,000 acres of majestic wilderness located in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado beckoning travelers to immerse themselves in the rejuvenating power of nature rewilded. With climates ranging from high desert to snowcapped alpine tundra, 19 fishable lakes and over 30 miles of streams, Vermejo offers unparalleled opportunities to explore. Its diverse landscape is home to a wide variety of wildlife including elk, bison, black bears and mountain lions. Whether riding horseback through open fields, exploring turn-of-the-century charcoal kilns, or fly fishing for native Rio Grande cutthroat trout, Vermejo has something for everyone.

Best of the Best

At Vermejo, a Ted Turner Reserve, the buffalo roam, the deer and the antelope play, and guests enjoy the American West’s premier ecotourism experience. Nominated for 2019’s Best of the Best Sustainability Award, guests can connect with nature on more than 550,000 acres of Ted Turner’s private ranchland; it’s like having a national park all to yourself. Accommodations range from the luxurious 25,000-square-foot Casa Grande to renovated cottages to a mountain retreat. Guides create outdoor activities tailored to your interests and skill level. Unwind with curated wine, whiskey, or a game of billiards, before fresh-from-the-garden fare.

Hotel Tip

Warm up to ice fishing in one of the ranch’s premium, solar-heated ice “shacks.” A private chef will prepare your catch of the day.

Sustainability

We are proud to have been a finalist for the Virtuoso Best of the Best Sustainable Tourism Leadership award and honored to stand beside other properties that make sustainability their highest goal.

At Vermejo, sustainability is in our DNA. Our core purpose is to efficiently manage our diverse native ecosystem in a sustainable manner; and share and the results of our work with others through warm hospitality and spectacular experiences. From encountering spectacular wildlife to staying in a solar-powered lodge, our activities inspire guests to interact with and find rejuvenation in nature. We live and breathe the "save everything" conservation mantra of Ted Turner with innovative initiatives in green operations, supporting our local communities and economies, and immersing guests in the stories and settings of our natural and cultural heritage. We've written a blog post that explains in detail what sustainability means to Ted Turner reserves.

This magnificent, historic estate features upgraded luxurious furnishings and boasts seven bedrooms, including two well-appointed Master bedrooms, a stunning, remodeled kitchen, billiard room, greenhouse, and more.
