Pecos cabin description

Located 3.67 miles up Cow Creek Road, log home has upper rental space of 2300 sq. ft. of log home with 800 sq. feet of deck. You can see three mesas on a clear day. The size of two bedrooms offers the feeling of great space for each person or couple. There is a separate living space where the 4th bedroom and bath are located downstairs. You either rent the top or bottom or both. The loft is also a sleeping space, popular with children. The Glorieta Mesa runs directly in front of the windows of the log home. The mesa changes in color as the day progresses and the weather changes. Should you be lucky enough to have a thunderstorm, there is a light show you will always remember. The sunsets and night skies are magnificent. I believe it is one of the most beautiful views in New Mexico. There is another apartment below which can be rented. Offers another 1200 sq. feet. Another kitchen , one bedroom and large bathroom.

There is a hammock for those who want to cuddle with a blanket and see the beauty of the night sky. There is also patio seating on the deck. In June, the wind gusts are 50 or 60. Furniture blows around and can hit windows. So, they are to be pulled to protected side of deck. A grille is available for fun outdoor dinners. There is wildlife to be seen. Deer, wild turkeys and a few larger species of wildlife may be seen. The larger wildlife is seldom seen but there are some. (Large coyotes, bears, bobcats, mountain lions, some say wolves) . There is a full service kitchen in both the apartment and also the main upper log home. Trader Joes and Whole Foods in Santa Fe offer great supply shopping or the Clines Corners (Eldorado) Exit and up the road to the left has a very large and nice shopping area with a coffee bean store, etc. The drinking water is pure and has a wonderful taste. Beds are very comfortable. The log home has a warm, inviting feel. There is a gate at the entrance which can be locked. Pictures do not do the home justice. Very nicely decorated. Teal large Egyptian wool rug in Master bedroom and very nice huge rug in living room area. This log home is very cozy.

                      Hiking tours can be arranged. Very near Santa Fe, New Mexico which offers amazing restaurants, galleries, festivals, spas, nightlife and shopping. Also near art center and unique town of Madrid close to Santa Fe exit off I -25.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: My late husband, age 53 died unexpectedly in 2009. We built this log home to be our retirement home. Initially, we were going to build a small log home but this turned out to be 4500 square feet, 3200 sq. ft. in use. It is quite beautiful. I now own a business on the East Coast and in 2012 moved to New Mexico permanently. I have decided to rent this log home as a vacation rental and know all who rent it will be taken with the area and all it has to offer. And the view will amaze you. I believe it is one of the most beautiful views in New Mexico.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pecos:
                      We built this home in this location because it is close to Santa Fe, New Mexico but gives an illusion of being secluded. The area is adjacent to a National Park and the views are spectacular.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      We back up to a National Forest and Pecos, New Mexico is an amazing town with many celebrities living in the town. It even has a medical center along with quite a few good restaurants. It is a hikers paradise. And for those who love shopping, eating and art, Santa Fe is just down the road. Once you come down the mountain and spend 10 to 15 minutes driving out from Pecos to the main highway, you are 20 to 25 minutes from Santa Fe. So you have the best of both worlds, you have the feel of privacy and total relaxation and the nearness of a city for many events and great restaurants. Friends of mine have said that they love just being up at the log home reading and taking in the beautiful sunsets and beautiful star filled nights.
