Chama house description

Lake access from this lovely guest house on a private ranch in the Chama Valley. Private gate entrance. Horse Corrals and dog kennel and room for boat or trailer parking at guest house site.

Peaceful sanctuary with extraordinary wildlife viewing. The ranch backs to 56,000 acre elk preserve. Willow Creek and Lake Heron are across the street. Sunrises, sunsets and star gazing are spectacular.

Lake Heron is a 'quiet Lake' with canoes, sail boats, swimming and fishing. Oh and be sure to bring a camera the views are the best Northern New Mexico has to offer. For water skiing, drive just 10 miles to El Vado Lake and let the noisy fun begin.

Chama is 10 miles north of ranch and has 1880's steam train attraction, boutique shopping, a new grocery store and restaurants.

Guest house is fully furnished with mountain charm decor including linens. The bedroom has a queen size bed. There is an additional queen size bed/ Futon in the Living room. There is a laundry room in the guest house with private washer and dryer. The kitchenette is equipped with a sink, refrigerator/freezer, microwave oven, convection oven, toaster, coffee maker and electric griddle. Please Note: There is no stove top.

2009 we put in a porch/ patio and chiminea (outdoor fireplace)

Santa Fe is 90 miles, Pagosa Springs is 50 miles, Taos is 95 miles. Day trips from the ranch are great in every direction.

Stay a week, stay a month. You will love this setting so much you will want to return each year. And check out nearby 5 acre Lake view lots for sale while you are here. Owner/Broker Barbara L. Russell.
