As the name implies Black Willow Trees line the Mora River as it meanders through the ranch. Imagine kayaking through the rock outcroppings and then drifting under the shade of the willows.

This ranch is both rugged and refined. It’s wild yet tame. It’s what makes it a One of One.

The history here is a tangible experience for guests. They are offered a glimpse into the past with the historically renovated homestead which includes the adobe barn, circa 1862. You can see and touch the history, hear the wildlife, feel the mountain wind, taste the seeds of the pinyon pine trees and smell nature as it should be – all natural.


This is where flocks of wild turkeys roam and seasonal herds of elk move through the rugged northern country. You will even find an occasional bear roaming the hillsides.


As a legacy family ranch this property offers a place for everyone, animals included. The multiple housing options provide the space needed to entertain along with offering privacy for family members to have their own space. No expense was spared with the recent infrastructure that was added. Quality roads and bridges were built to last a lifetime. This ranch has been preserved and conserved and is ready to be handed to the next steward.
