Will tell all my friends!
I just wanted to thank you for letting us stay in your house in Chama NM last week. The house was very well furnished and it was a pleasure to stay there. I will most certainly recommend it to all my friends and I would definitely want to stay there again when I am in that area. Again, thank you very much we enjoyed our stay very much.

The inside of this old house has been updated and is very nice. The Web Site pictures and description give an accurate indication of the interior. The exterior picture is not especially appealing but the house is in great condition outside as well as inside. The rooms(including bath rooms)and furnishings were very clean and in good condition. We had no problems and would stay here again if the occasion arises.

Snowmobile EnthusiastsGuest comment entered by owner
We enjoyed our stay, the parking for our rigs worked fine, the house was very nicely equipped & comfortable. We were impressed with how everything was new, towels, dishes, appliances & fixtures. Our group ranges in ages from the mid 30's to the mid 70's so it was nice to have the extra room, compared to how we usually stay in motels. We will definately be interested in staying there again, in fact we gave your information to a family of snowmobilers from Sante Fe that were going to contact you.

Brian – the house was great. The short walk to the train was great. Also very roomy and nicely equipped for a home away from home. Really much better than a motel.

We had a great family stay at your house. We met up with Frances, enjoyed the small towm of Chama for dinner, played a typical long game of Monopoly and had a great breakfast before heading back to Denver. Thanks so much for sharing your property with our family.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I was introduced to Chama, NM when I was working on the Navajo Reservation from 2002-2007. A boss of mine bought a house there and after I visited once, I fell in love with the area as it was a stark contract to the painted desert, but both provided a variety of outdoor activities in different environments. I bought the home in 2003 and began fixing it up in 2005, and did not finish until 2008, after I returned to Massachusetts, where I currently live. I am also a graduate of Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT.
Why the Owner Chose Chama:
This is one of the oldest homes remaining in Chama. It is a gambrel style victorian and was built in 1882. Records indicate that the builder of the home was a conductor of the D&RG railroad. There is more history related to this man and his family located in the home. The house has been completely remodeled, but strong effort was made to keep the details and charm accurate to the era. If you look closely during your stay, you will be able to spot some of the original features of the home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is the last home on Terrace Ave/Main St in Chama, with views of the Cumbres Pass from all north windows and the decks. You can see the train pass by in the morning, as the tracks are directly across the street, and the depot, dining and shopping are all literally a 2 mintue walk from the home. There is plenty of parking behind the garage on Maple St. or along the side of the property on 1st St...enough to easily accomodate 30' trailers/motorhomes. It is easy accessible in the Winter, as all town roads are plowed by the state.
