Ojo Caliente house description

Come relax and enjoy the best of northern New Mexico. The Casita Kokopelli offers the quality of a resort and the safety of a gated community with access to some of New Mexico’s most spectacular landscapes. Situated near Ojo Caliente this 2 master bedroom suite with luxury kitchen and living area (over 1,500 sq ft) offers the perfect getaway for those needing to escape from the routine. This is the ideal casita for couples looking for a quite romantic weekend retreat or friends traveling together seeking luxurious accommodations.
The casita let’s you experience the southwest through the custom architecture, original artwork, handcrafted furniture, tinwork and textiles. In addition, you’ll be pampered with high quality bedding and toiletries. Several wonderful outdoor patio areas offer living spaces where you can enjoy views of the Ojo Caliente Valley, a cozy outdoor fireplace or the shade of a portale with the sounds of a fountain and wind chimes. Once at the casita it's hard to leave.
While you may choose to linger at the casita, its location opens the door to experience Northern New Mexico. Easily access to Georgia O’Keeffe country, the hot springs of Ojo Caliente, the high country of Vallecitos and an easy drive to galleries in Santa Fe (38 miles) or Taos (50 miles) makes this the perfect location for your stay. Excellent restaurants are plentiful and there are several wineries along the Rio Grande. The Southwestern and Native American artwork, museums and open studio tours that can make driving though the countryside a more memorable event!
Note: Rental for one bedroom is for the master bedroom in the main unit that opens onto the living room (no door). The second master bedroom is a private room located in a separate wing. There are a few steps from the parking area into the casita and a few steps inside.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Hello and welcome to our casita. We are both from New Mexico and tremendously enjoy the time we are able to spend in the “land of enchantment.” After graduating from New Mexico State University our careers have us taken around the United States. Although not living in New Mexico for many years, we have always returned to revitalize ourselves and enjoy the food. We especially enjoy the northern New Mexico landscapes and the events in many of the communities between Santa Fe and Taos. We enjoy the outdoors, taking many picnics and hikes in the mountains and along the Rio Grande and we also enjoy the shopping and architecture of Santa Fe. However, relaxing and enjoying a sunset at the casita is always the highlight of the every trip.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ojo Caliente:
                  We were looking for a retreat in northern New Mexico where we could relax and enjoy Santa Fe and Taos. Once we experienced the expansive views, southwestern architectural features and the amenities of the Rancho de San Juan County Inn, we knew the casita would suit all of our needs – relaxing and entertaining friends. There were many features that attracted us to the property. There are wonderful views of the Ojo Caliente Valley from the living room and back patio. The front of the casita offers a portal that is refreshingly shady in the afternoon with views of Black Mesa. In the main section of the casita, the master bedroom opens into the living room allowing for a view of the fireplace. There is also an additional master bedroom with a fireplace and private patio. The casita is part of a small enclave of homes within a gated community that adjoins Rancho de San Juan Country Inn and Restaurant (currently closed).

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The casita is furnished to reflect our interest in traditional arts and crafts of New Mexico. It offers solitude while providing easy access to the landscapes and cultures of Northern New Mexico - both Abiquiu and Ojo Caliente are close by and there are scenic loop drives to Taos and Santa Fe that provide perfect day trips. Other unique benefits include: walking distance to Rancho de San Juan County Inn and Restaurant where you can make reservation for breakfast or dinner (we have arranged for the Inn to provide you with keys to the casita and a gate opener); access to a unique limestone carved cathedral behind the Inn on the black mesa – a short, easy hike from the casita; a credit at the Inn that can be used towards dining or gifts; and an opportunity get away for everything and relax! The casita includes two kiva fireplaces, one in the living area and one in the master bedroom for cool spring and fall evenings; a full kitchen with a Viking stove for those inclined to create meals, a beautiful covered patio area with an outdoor fireplace, peaceful fountain, and teak furniture as well as two back patio sitting areas to enjoy the amazing southwestern sunsets.
