Welcome to Nine Mile Ranch

About the Ranch

Known as the Base camp or gateway to the “Longest Petroglyph Art Gallery” in the world, Nine Mile Guest Ranch and Bunk~n~Breakfast is the perfect place to stay while exploring the amazing cultural history of the canyon. It’s the ONLY place you can stay in the canyon!
Ben and Myrna Mead leased the ranch in 1991 and purchased the property in 1996. They have lived on various ranches in Nine Mile Canyon prior to buying the land. The ranch is known as a “working cattle ranch”. Cattle drives are held during the spring and fall and arrangements can be made for visitors to ride along.

Nine Mile Ranch is a great stopping place on your way to a river run through Desolation Canyon on the Green River. The ranch is one of the few mosquito-free places in the area which is of course a big plus!

Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to Nine Mile Ranch! Here at our Ranch house, we have the space that you need to kick back and relax after a wonderful day of touring the canyon that we are famously located in! With private accommodations, an entertaining common space to relax in, caring hosts and plenty of green space to explore and have a blast in, whats there to miss?



Each of our cabins are original settler cabins found in the canyon. We purchased them, took pictures, numbered the logs, broke them down, and rebuilt them right here on the property with concrete floors so you can enjoy what it would have been like to be a settler here in the 1800’s. Our four cabins are well situated near the Guesthouse, Campgrounds, Bathrooms and Showers, and the Pavilion. They provide the perfect intimate getaway and privacy for any couple or family. Breakfast available for purchase.



With Nine Mile Creek running alongside, plenty of shade, and green grass, our Campgrounds have much to offer. Each of our 18 campsites provide the perfect atmosphere for Family Reunions and to get together. With over 1,000 acres to explore on this working Cattle Ranch, there is much to see. With fully functional showers and bathrooms, what’s there to miss? Come and stay with us!
