Burnt Well Guest Ranch is a small, family-owned and operated ranch in the warm, sunny climate of New Mexico. With two Chesser generations raised on the ranch. This is not a dude ranch but an actual working cattle and sheep ranch.

In 1950, Ivan Chesser bought the Burnt Well ranch. In 1957, he added another homestead called "The Frazier Place", to his holdings. This is what comprises the current Chesser Ranch.

Ivan's son, Kim, is a lifelong cowboy from a long, family ranching tradition. He was born and raised on this ranch and not only has a love of this way of life but a greater love of people. His wife, Patricia, is also a native of New Mexico, who is ready to see that your comforts are taken care of. She rides when she has time, cooks good ole country food and provides sweet fiddle music around the evening campfire.
