VRBO Bear stayed here: We found this property to be beary special
Beautiful modern mountain cabin with all high end amenities INSIDE national forest. Summer and Winter wonderland! The home is all on one level - no stairs of any kind (except the exterior stairs down to the hutub) King bed in the master and two queen beds in the guest rooms - all plush pillow top beds. Awesome master bath with giant cast iron tub, perfect for two if you don't feel like sitting in the hot tub :-) Extreme privacy - this is one of the only properties like this in the Santa Fe area - a true mountain paradise get away, yet so close to town. Out door enthusiasts will love it here, bring your mountain bikes in the summer and your cross country ski's in the winter, ski right out the front door! The home has ample deck and patio space overlooking the creek and hot tub, perfect for out door entertaining. Cool temps in the summer when downtown is hot! Encantado resort is right down the road for world class dining and spa services. There is a 2 mile dirt road to the property and the last 1/2 mile is a little bumpy and it can get muddy or snowy depending on the weather... Please note that an SUV or all wheel drive vehicle may be preferable in case of inclement weather, especially winter months when a 4x4 is needed.

The Bear had a very hard time leaving this wonderful mountain retreat inside the Santa Fe National Forest! Thoughtfully appointed and extremely relaxing, the property made it hard to even want to venture the short ride to downtown Santa Fe – we could have spent our entire stay at the property and been completely content. We enjoyed wonderful hikes, relaxing soaks in the hot tub, incredible woodland views from the many windows, and restful slumber in the comfortable beds. All day (and night, when we chose to open the windows) we were serenaded by the pleasant babbling sound of the front yard brook – so incredibly peaceful. The very thoughtful owner had all sorts of guide books and hiking maps ready for our stay, and an extremely well-appointed kitchen to make meal prep a breeze. There are great local restaurants a short drive away, dramatic showings of hummingbirds, and a luxurious steam shower to ease away any aches from a busy day of hiking or sightseeing. Three bedrooms make this a great choice for a family or multiple couples. There were even friendly neighbor dogs that came to visit the Bear and offered to accompany us on a daily hike. We are already ready for another visit to Tesuque mountain cabin!

About the owner: My name is Brian and I have lived in this paradise for over 17 years and now its time to share.
Why the Owner Chose Tesuque: This is the only location thats this close to Santa Fe, inside the national forest, on a stream that affords total privacy and high quality of living. I feel so blessed to have been able to live up here all these years. I can never get over how beautiful Pacheco Canyon is!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: This home was designed by and award winning designer - no boring architecture here. The home was planned to feel like the outdoors and indoors were one, and I truly think we succeeded. Sitting by the creek, watching the humming birds, having margaritas on the deck - or in the hot tub. Mountain biking and skiing right out the front door - endless miles of hiking and exploring, watching the birds - it never gets old! The only problem with staying up here is that you will not want to leave....Santa whaa?
