Renowned conservationist and philanthropist Ted Turner enhances his collection of conservation forward properties in Southern New Mexico. His personal home, Hacienda at Armendaris (formerly known as Armendaris House) is the latest dwelling to join the Ted Turner Reserves' brand for guest stays. Located on the 360,000-acre Armendaris property, the recently renovated Hacienda exudes an unparalleled combination of luxurious accommodations and rustic charm. Nestled in the crimson Chihuahuan desert, Armendaris embodies the essence of southern New Mexico. Only a short drive from sister properties Ladder and Sierra Grande, guests staying at Hacienda at Armendaris will have the opportunity to trek through semi-desert and mountainous landscapes, encounter bison, pronghorn, and desert bighorn sheep, and experience the wonders of the Jornada lava flow caves, home to one of the largest populations of Mexican free-tailed bats in the country. Also recently renovated, Ted's main Ladder house, (now known as the Country House at Ladder), also available for guest stays includes four new bright and spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers and slipper tubs, truly transforming his home into a spectacular and relaxing refuge for parties of up to 8 guests.

A natural oasis situated by four Rio Grande tributaries; the 156,000-acre Ladder property is home to rich biodiversity. Surrounded by sweeping landscapes, Ladder effortlessly pulls you into the present moment. Meanwhile, petroglyphs, pottery shards, and adobe ruins invite exploration into the mysteries of the past.

In addition to Armendaris, Ladder and Sierra Grande, Ted Turner Reserves owns and operates Vermejo, located in northern New Mexico.
