Velarde house description

Nestled in century old cottonwoods along the Rio Grande, our enchanting treehouse offers a unique opportunity for short or longer stays. It is ideal for those seeking a tranquil, rural setting centrally located.

The treehouse has easy access with a large staircase and is comfortably appointed with gas fireplace, antiques, and hand crafted furniture. The upper loft boasts of a queen-size featherbed and skylights for moonlight viewing. A screened porch and wrap-around deck offer views of the river, surrounding orchards, and mesas beyond. Pets are NOT allowed and No Smoking.

Located just below the treehouse is a luxurious stone bathhouse with gas fireplace, full Victorian tub, spacious flagstone shower, along with a toilet and vanity area. It's a lovely spot to enjoy a romantic tub with views of the river. Adjacent to the Bathhouse is the Cookhouse, a fully furnished kitchen and dining area with a large deck offering additional riverside dining and lounging possibilities. Stroll in the gardens, watch birds and wildlife from the riverside patios or just relax in the hammock.

We're sure you'll find your stay a memorable one.
