Red River house description

La Casita at Paradise Creek is the perfect place to relax and soak in the mountain air of Northern New Mexico. Nestled beside a creek and surrounded by cottonwoods on 3.2 acres in the mountains of Questa, La Casita is a beautiful and well-placed getaway. Just on the outskirts of Questa, a quaint, heritage-rich village, La Casita is a short, scenic drive away from both Taos (25 min) and Red River (10 min), and only a ten minute walk from Eagle Rock Lake. The abundance of natural beauty in the area offers endless opportunities to enjoy nature, from fly fishing and trail hiking in the spring and summer, to hunting in the fall, and skiing and snowboarding in the winter.

La Casita is an 800 sq. foot, two bedroom, 1.5 bath home, with a distinctive New Mexican flavor. The master bedroom has wood floors and a comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom has saltillo tile and a Murphy’s bed that turns into a double sleeper. There is also a sofa sleeper (Quadro - folds 4 ways) in the living room. The kitchen has handcrafted wood cabinetry and saltillo tile. The home comes fully stocked with linens, kitchenware, a washer and dryer, wireless internet, satellite cable television, and a DVD player.
La Casita is located at the secluded northern end of the property. Please inquire if you would like to rent the main house, Casa Leyenda (House of Legends), that sleeps up to 10 people, which is located at the opposite end of the property. (VRBO # 354783)

Questa is located on the Enchanted Circle scenic highway, near the confluence of the Rio Grande and Red River, and is at the western base of the Taos Mountains.

                          About: Patricia Rael is a member of the Rael family in Questa. Her father was the Historian of Questa. Her mother and father raised their family of six in the area. As a child, Patricia remembers her father inviting the school children to Easter Egg Hunts and decided one day she would have a beautiful property in the country for families to enjoy away from the city.

                          Why Red River:
                          The majestic mountains surrounding the property along with the tall cotton wood trees and creek that weaves through the property along with the beauty and serenity of the 3 acres of land.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          A hiking, skiing, snowboarding, hunting or family vacation retreat. Hear the creek runing through the property while relaxing outside while breathing in the cool mountain air. Plenty of room for families with kids and pets.
