Ladder | Truth or Consequences | Sierra County | New Mexico

Property Description

Situated in breathtaking southern New Mexico, the 156,000-acre Ladder is home to a wide collection of animal species and rich historic landmarks. Its expansive landscapes, range of outdoor activities, and warm approach to hospitality guarantee memorable travel experiences that connect people to nature.

Ladder offers unique outdoor adventures and serves as a wildlife refuge for many native New Mexico species. Ladder works closely with the Turner Endangered Species Fund to help rebuild the population of threatened species such as the Chiricahua leopard frog, Bolson tortoise, Rio Grande cutthroat trout and the Mexican wolf.

Ladder’s proximity to four Rio Grande tributaries allows for a vast collection of animal life, such as bison, elk, mule deer, javelina, antelope, bears, and mountain lions to thrive.


Make your stay truly sublime. Decorated by Jane Fonda, Ted Turner’s private home flaunts rustic elegance with Southwestern accents. Staying true to Ted Turner’s character, the five-bedroom ranch house exudes comfort and an unassuming ambiance. All meals and activities are included with your stay at Ladder. For those looking for an intimate and unique experience, this is second to none. Other features include a front porch, stone fireplace, and flat-screen TV.


Experience the delight of having a gourmet meal tailored to you. The house’s private chef brings traditional American cuisine and expert culinary insight to craft the menu to your personal tastes. Utilizing seasonal ingredients and local produce, each meal will be uniquely yours.

Conservation and Wildlife

Exceptionally diverse biologically, Ladder has been a focal point for several species restoration programs in partnership with the Turner Endangered Species Fund, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and New Mexico Department of Game and Fish. Some of these species include the Mexican wolf, Chiricahua leopard frog, and Bolson tortoise.
