The Ranch-Lakewood, New Mexico

We arrived at The Ranch on Thursday, March 26, 2009. It is a pretty isolated area 22 miles north of Carlsbad and 16 miles south of Artesia.

They do indeed ring the bell when you arrive. Folks do come out of their rigs or ride their bikes to come greet you. One big hug fest as seen in the collage below at the bottom right. The office is a cute, small buildiing. At registration you are handed a bag of treats for either a dog or cat - reminder to pick up after your pet but a cute idea non the less.

The porch in front of the club house is full of comfortable looking rocking chairs.

I think The Ranch wins over Hondo as being the friendliest. They sure make you feel they want you here in no uncertain terms. They even have a Welcoming Committee to visit every new arrival to welcome you and invite you to the social hour and make sure you have their calendar of events.

If we were to buy a lot somewhere this would probably our first pick of parks.

Remember, you are loved.
