Ancient Way Cafe
Winter Cabin Rental Escape
Updated: Dec 2, 2020
Need a mid-winter break? El Morro’s milder winters usually make our RV Park, Cabin Rental & Café accessible year-round. We host a number of cabins and are located off HWY 53 in Northwest New Mexico. Easily accessed from Grants or Gallup, we are just West of Albuquerque off I40.
With our main tourist months from Summer through Fall, a different world exists here in winter. A much quieter experience, there many available activities nearby. You could take a quiet walk in the back of the property and through our outdoor sculpture art garden—beginning within a stone’s throw of your cabin. Then just across the street, The Old School Gallery hosts Yoga, Tai Chi, and various other activities and events during the week. And El Morro National Monument, just two miles away, offers historical trails and a Visitor Center. Some trails will be closed after heavier snows.
With The Ancient Way Café just steps from your cabin, fresh pastries, breakfasts, and lunch are available at your leisure. A dinner can be arranged to be delivered in your cabin just prior to closing at 5:00 p.m. Thursday thru Sunday, though an extended dinner service is available with reservations on Friday and Saturday night. Consider a winter cabin stay at El Morro RV.
Update: Due to the Corona Virus, The Ancient Way Cafe will be closed until Spring 2021.
As a result of the Cafe closing, we have updated the cabins to include compact refrigerators, dishes, cooking utensils, hot plates, and BBQ grills. Please bring your own provisions, though our local holistic food store, with a limited selection, is directly across the street from your cabin rental. Major grocers are in nearby Grants.
Updated hours for the National Monument hosting numerous and historical trails, is 9:00 - 4:00 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, though the visitor center remains closed. Our own art trail is behind our winter cabins, and the sculpture garden trail is directly across the street at the Old School Art Gallery.
Come see the other side of El Morro this winter!
