Hoot Owl Ranch is nestled in a beautiful canyon in the panhandle of Oklahoma near Kenton.  The ranch house and barn were built in the late 1800s of hand-carved sandstone and the surrounding area is enriched with the history of the Old West. Visitors will experience American Indian rock art and artifacts, dinosaur tracks and the old Santa Fe Trail, located nearby.

Enjoy bird watching in Hoot Owl Canyon, hiking or just relaxing on the porch of one of the ranch's beautiful cabins. Horseback riding is available for those who bring their own horses.  Oklahoma's highest peak, Black Mesa, and the Black Mesa Nature Preserve are located just a few miles from the ranch.

The ranch's two cabins feature queen-size beds with full baths, kitchenettes, microwaves and small refrigerators. Breakfast is included with any overnight stay and is served in the ranch's dining room.  The cabins are non-smoking and pets are not allowed. The hand-carved sandstone house is also available and sleeps six. It features a full kitchen and all of the amenities of home. Breakfast is not included with the ranch house rental.

Join the owners of Hoot Owl Ranch in Kenton to learn about fascinating excavations in the area, including a Spanish conquistador helmet and breastplate, dinosaur bones and Indian petroglyphs. Visitors to the ranch can also spot the Old Maid Rock on the property.
