Rutheron house description

Maximum 6 people. Minimum 3 night reservation. Private Lake Paradise. High on a cliff overlooking 1000's of acres with clear unobstructed views of pinon and pine trees forests, wildflowers, and the amethyst Brazos Cliffs, 30 minutes south is where Georgia O'Keeffe lived and was inspired by the raw beauty of the desert and Pedernal mesa. There is a wraparound deck to take in the sweeping panoramic vista. Heron Lake is an oasis for swimming, fishing, and boating; No wake lake so just sailboats, canoes and no wake fishing craft. (You can go to El Vado Lake nearby for water skiing and jet skis) Perfect for writing, painting, hanging out, meditating, socializing, swimming or boating in the lake (bring your own boat or rent one at Stone Lake Lodge), or simply sightseeing and hiking in the nearby mountains. It's sunny year-round; not too hot in summer, cool breezes and hummingbirds abound in the evenings. The elevation is 6,700.

Surrounded by natural beauty
Cumbres Toltec Railroad nearby in Chama, NM. Tierra Wools nearby in Los Ojos, NM. Fishing nearby on the private side of Heron Lake and Willow Creek. Georgia O'Keefes Abiqui and Ghost Ranch as well as Ojo Caliente Hot Mineral Springs and Spa are about an hour away. Taos, Taos Pueblo and the Taos Gorge Bridge is 1.0 hours to the east, Unwind, decompress, get away from it all except perhaps KTAO's Joseph the Starwatchers' daily horoscope. Great area for families as well as reunions and retreats of any kind.

                          Year Purchased: 1990

                          About the owner: This is my private vacation home where I go to get away from the real world.

                          Why the Owner Chose Rutheron:
                          I love the peace, the quiet, the forests surrounding the house. The views are Legendary and the lake is nearby.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I will go hiking in Ghost Ranch, visit the weaving village of Los Ojos, take a day trip to Santa Fe, Taos, or visit the Monks down near Ghost Ranch for some Gregorian Chanting. Also you can visit the Monastery-Christ of the Desert down near Ghost Ranch
