Ojo Caliente house description

La Lomita is located in the area where La Familia Valdez has a 300 year history. La Lomita was conceived, designed and built with hospitality and spirituality in mind. It is a place of healing and rest, of relaxing and dreaming, of renewal. It holds mystery in the howling coyotes, the whispering junipers, the shifting arroyos, and the colorful wildlife. Bienvenidos! Nuestra casa es su casa.

Read our wonderful reviews and let our many guests describe the La Lomita experience. (See review section)

Nestled into the Black Mesa, La Lomita is the hub surrounded by Abiquiu to the northwest, Ojo Caliente and Taos to the north, Chimayo to the east, and Española and Santa Fe to the south, all with local art and food just 10 to 55 minutes away. It is 12 miles from the relaxing mineral springs and spa at Ojo Caliente, and 30 minutes from Los Alamos and Bandalier National Monument.

The spectacular Santa Fe Opera is 30 minutes away, as is its neighbor, the Santa Fe Flea Market with treasures made by 'artesanos' from Mexico, Guatemala and other native areas (open in Spring and Summer).

On the way to Taos, via the High Road through Truchas or the route along the Rio Grande through Velarde with the Black Mesa Winery, you will find beautiful scenery and native Hispano-made tin work, retablos, santos, and weaving from traditions begun hundreds of years ago.

River rafting in the Rio Grande or floating over the river gorge in a hot air balloon, are adventures waiting for all ages, as are the ski trails and golf courses, all in close proximity to La Lomita.

Stay at home and climb the Black Mesa, part of our 9 acre 'back yard', and if you reach the top (about 45 minutes of spectacular climbing), wander across the top of the Mesa and see the Rio Grande flowing below. Or grab your easel and paints, camera or writing pad, and capture the breath-taking, mountain scenes all around you. Need to relax? Try tai-ch, yoga or gentle walking around our juniper, piñon and desert-flowered landscape, and let the many visiting songbirds lull you into a peaceful siesta.

Keywords: On 9 acres, solar adobe home with covered portal (porch) facing the Jemez mountains, designed with quiet and the spiritual in mind. The terrain, including the mesa high above the house, suggests privacy. ¡Se habla español!

Of course, the floors and adobe walls via the south-facing Trombe window panels cooperate with the sun. In the summer, the adobe walls, with the help of ceiling fans and use of window blinds, allow the house to maintain comfortable temperature naturally. The well, which is more than 400 feet deep, provides clear, crisp water. Everything is on one floor, including the two bathrooms, one with a shower-tub combination and one with shower and laundry with a washer, dryer and utility sink.

                      • Start your day on the portal of our solar adobe home by watching the sun creep slowly over the surrounding Black Mesa. Choose a different adventure and a different direction each day: Enjoy the wide variety of restaurants in Ojo Caliente, Española, Abiquiu and vicinity, each with its own flavor of hospitality and culture. Rejuvenate in the centuries-old mineral springs resort of Ojo Caliente, 15 minutes north of La Lomita. Follow the Rio Grande 1 hour northeast to the ski slopes of Taos and visit its unique shops and restaurants. Don't miss the spectacular Rio Grande gorge–perhaps from your hot air balloon! Explore the nearby Puye Cliff Dwellings and the Bandelier Monument to learn about ancient history of the area, or the Bradbury Museum in Los Alamos to learn about the WWII atom bomb development and current efforts in safe nuclear energy. One day isn't enough to spend in beautiful, historic Santa Fe, the highest capitol in the United States. Visit museums, 300 year-old churches, the town square with native artisans selling their wares and, of course, Santa Fe's wonderful restaurants. All this plus skiing and golf are only 40 minutes from our home....moreless

                        We were looking for a quiet place with a great view, located in an area with plenty of day-trip possibilities. Score 100% for La Lomita. The house is fully equipped for housekeeping, right down to a fine range of spices for those who want to cook for themselves. We enjoyed every aspect of our vacation in the mountains of New Mexico. We found the home and the area were exactly as described- wonderful!

                        Manager response: We are successful, because our guests are so kind and respectful. We built our home, first thinking that it would be our retirement home; however, the course of life (grandchildren) took us in a different direction. We are able to share what we love, because of the peaceful quality of people who walk through the door. Thanks!

                        My husband and I brought one of our sons and his new bride for a long weekend with the intention of sharing what we love about New Mexico. It couldn't have been more perfect. Carl & Gretchen have thoughtfully furnished their home to be a place of peace, comfort and beauty. The views were gorgeous, the access to Santa Fe and Taos excellent. The home was a place of peace. We were able to relax and refresh and left filled with some of the beautiful New Mexico sky in our hearts. Thank you! We hope to be back.

                        We have just left La Lomita after staying for a month and we are already planning our return trip! This is a beautiful property and Carl and Gretchen provide guests with everything they will need and so much more. We have two toddlers (boys, ages 4 and 2), and sometimes worry about how child-friendly a VRBO property will be. La Lomita was perfect for us. The boys loved playing in the arroyo and exploring the cave on the property. There's plenty of sleeping space--the futon in the second bedroom makes a comfy bed that our boys enjoyed sharing. My husband and I are writers, and we took turns spending our mornings writing on the portal. I can not think of a better place for a writer or artist to work. The property is secluded and so quiet--but the wifi is great if and when you need to be connected. I went running almost daily through the subdivision, enjoying the cool summer temps and dry air--not to mention the breathtaking views. We went on daily adventures with the boys. Close by, there's Abiquiu Lake which has a great playground and is the perfect swimming spot. Also in Abiquiu is Ghost Ranch, a family retreat center that we hardly explored, but we did enjoy their beautiful pool and family room that is full of toys. We took several trips to Taos--a beautiful hour's drive, where the boys loved Twirl, a fantastic toy shop that has a wonderful outside playscape. Kit Carson Park, in Taos, is great for a picnic, and you should make several trips to Michael's Kitchen, just for the sopapillas. We went to Los Alamos for the 4th of July and loved the feeling of small town festivities. Santa Fe is a short drive also, and there's a great playground across from the Whole Foods that makes for a nice day. We also took longer excursions, to Hopewell Lake, Red River, Chama, Tierra Amarilla--there's so much to see, and La Lomita is accessible to so much. I highly recommend a trip to the springs in Ojo Caliente--I treated myself to a yoga class and a soak and was glad I did. We are absolutely in love with La Lomita and felt so fortunate to have such a comfortable and accommodating home base. Thank you so much, Carl and Gretchen--we will return!

                        So beautiful. Enjoyed many nearby locations including Bandolier, Los Alamos, and Ojo Caliente Spa (it really is only 10 or so minutes away!). Next time, I would want more time to enjoy this beautiful home. Clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and everything you need to relax. The recommended restaurants were awesome. The hike up the arroyo behind the house led to beautiful vistas. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home....can't wait to come back.

                        This house was perfect for our stay, and I would recommend it highly. Our elderly relatives staying with us really appreciated the accessibility, as well as the homey feel. The neighbor gave us a lovely welcome, and gifted us with homemade zucchini bread. We had several post-wedding family gatherings here, and the accommodations -- including spacious living area, well-organized kitchen, games for the kids, DVD's to enjoy, and a guitar for our sing-along! -- were just perfect for this. The stars were breathtaking, and the desert terrain endlessly fascinating. It was convenient to Ojo Caliente, Santa Fe, Taos, and other sites we visited.

                        "The light, the light," all the artists and mystics and dreamers say of this region of the cosmos but I was unconvinced. Light is light, right? And on the long-ish car ride from Albuquerque to this isolated ranchero I grew even more skeptical. The barren landscape gave off a pinkish hue and the colors of the homes and buildings seemed unimaginatively bland, the color of sand and rock. I appreciated the drive in the sense of it being intriguing. It was an introduction to a landscape so foreign to me that it was like a another country or planet. If I hadn't seen the Las Vegas environs last year, and Salt Lake City's mountains the year before, this would've been even more terra incognito. But then we arrived at the house we were renting and it was instant "wow". The view incredible, setting spectacular, and surely this was because we were surrounded by juniper and spruce trees. This was no barren desert, but one with modestly tall trees that didn't obstruct the view. A dry arroyo with some coyote tracks, puffs of desert plants clumped artistically here and there in the sand completed the picture. I was sold, in short, and immediately noticed a spectacular quality of light. The shadows pregnant with meaning, the sun gilt against the wood frame porch. And then we went in and I was blown away again. Picturesque to the nth degree, with a generous number of windows to let that special light in, plenty of books to slake my literary thirst, and all under the benevolent gaze of Our Lady of Guadalupe from a wall niche. Yes I definitely liked this place, and almost immediately a sense of panic set in: How could I read all these New Mexico-themed books and soak in this stellar view and magic light all in just three days? The mind shuddered at the impossibility, but I was instantly grateful we'd decided not to explore Albuquerque after getting the rental car. To top it all off, literally, in back of the house lay a treasure, "Black Mesa", and it was just begging to be climbed and I wasn't there a half-hour before I was picking my way up amid a fine variety of rocks, many old remants from a lava flow this being an extinct volcano. Up and up I went, completely out of breath but loathing to pause. What a beautiful part of the country!

                        La Lomita was a wonderful home base for day trips to Ojo Caliente, El Rito and Chimayo. Evenings and mornings on the porch were idyllic. The kitchen was well-equipped. The furnishings were homey and I did not worry about tracking in the inevitable sand and dust. Hummingbirds, ravens and jack rabbits provided lively entertainment. The surrounding scenery was stunning, particularly the drama of storms over the mountains and the light on the Black Mesa. Although the weather was really too hot to safely attempt the hike up to the mesa, I enjoyed short walks around the property. The best tip in the house handbook was the pointer towards Theresa's Gallery in Santa Cruz!

                        For us, La Lomita was a much needed getaway. My family was struck by the beauty of the casita and the landscape. We walked to the mesa behind La Monita, enjoyed the sounds of the cicadas clicking, and watched the sun set behind the mesas in the distance. When we did venture away for a side excursion, we were delightful treated to authentic Northern New Mexican food. Bueno! I hope to return with my partner and spend more time at the casita. The casita was incredibly beautiful and calming. We highly recommend all that this property has to offer.

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About: Carl Valdez is a native of the Finger Lakes area of New York State and Gretchen is a native of Minneapolis, MN where they live and have raised 6 daughters, 8 grandchildren and a great-grand daughter. Carl is a veteran of the US Air Force of the Viet Nam era. Both are retired teachers, but Carl works full-time as an ordained deacon in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Su ministerio es primeramente con los de habla hispana. Carl is named after his paternal grandfather, Carlos Borromeo Valdez. His father's ancestors originally settled in Abiquiu, NM in the early 1800's, then in Los Valdeses, Colorado (now Seven Mile Plaza) between Del Norte and Monte Vista in the San Luis Valley. The church there, San Francisco de Asís, was founded by Juan Pio Valdez, Carl's great (5 times)-grandfather who was raised in Abiquiu. The land on which the church sits is called La Loma (the Hill) near the Rio Grande; thus the name for our home, La Lomita. Our home is situated 100 miles south, also very near the Rio Grande. Some of his aunts, uncles and cousins eventually moved back to Española, Santa Fe and Albuquerque, and it is primarily in Monte Vista and this area that he and Gretchen began regular visits more than 30 years ago.

                      Why Ojo Caliente:
                      In addition to the above family reasons, we became enchanted with the beauty of northern New Mexico, hearing the language of Carl's father, the music, the restaurants with authentic northern New Mexican food, and even watching the hummingbirds.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love the excitement of watching our grandchildren start 'the climb' to the top of the mesa (okay, so only two have made it with a lot of help from grandpa) or climb on the surrounding rock structures, watch hummingbirds dive and look forward every day to a new adventure - just minutes away. We are delighted that there is something to do year around. In some months, it's possible to ski in the morning (Taos) and golf in the afternoon (Albuquerque). We are also pleased to have a modest collection of reading material including New Mexico history and New Mexican authors, mysteries, nature, and spiritual topics. A number of visitors have commented that they have enjoyed reading on the portal (porch) without interruption (other than hummingbirds), and others have enjoyed adding to our growing collection.
