"The Casita del Lago, perched above where the Chama River empties into Abiquiu Reservoir, across the water from the famous Ghost Ranch, and facing the everchanging colors of miles of scenic rock cliffs that stretch for as far as the eye can see, rewards you with views that are simply awesome, especially as sunset approaches. Many stunning photos can be made just by standing right outside of the Casita and pointing your camera in any direction. The views from inside the house are essentially the same, as framed by the many floor to ceiling windows. Inside the Casita itself is a nice blend of southwestern rustic charm and modern conveniences, with a full kitchen and 2 bedrooms that easily accommodated our party of 4 guests. The road in to the property is rough, and a minor inconvenience to drive, but the seclusion of the location once you arrive more than makes up for the drive in. Our stay was graced with excellent weather 6 of the 7 days, with predictably chilly but clear nights as well. We did lose power one evening for only a couple of seconds, and had to reset some breakers to get everything back running, but it was a trivial interruption to an otherwise perfect stay.
If you are looking for a super scenic and secluded slice of the high NM desert to rent, then a trip to the Casita del Lago will certainly be a great choice!"

"My husband and I spent a week in Santa Fe and then headed to Grace and Felix's gorgeous cabin in Cañones. It was an awe inspiring view as we rounded the hill and saw their rental for the first time. Nestled in a canyon near the Perdenal one could not find a more peaceful, beautiful place to land after a week of shopping and dining out in Santa Fe. The cabin was adorable; Grace and Felix exceptional hosts, and the hiking phenomenal. We knew to stop at a grocery store in Santa Fe and brought food to grill on the deck and cook in the full size kitchen. The cabin was well appointed, and the week flew by. I can say we absolutely did not want to leave. I almost hate to rave about this hidden gem because so many people will discover the beauty of its location. We will DEFINITELY be back! Thank you for sharing your home with us Grace and Felix!"

A lovely getaway for those who want to soak up the local charm.
"Amelia was a lovely find. A charming, cozy, accommodating retreat for those who wish to soak in the spirit of New Mexico on a budget, and small-pet friendly. The surrounding land and views are wonderful. A perfect view of the sunset. However, if you are seeking a private, little hideaway, be aware that this is within easy walking distance of the home of the land's owner. A lovely presence, but a presence nonetheless. Would highly recommend for travelers who love to explore the surrounding countryside. An easy car trek to Santa Fe, Taos, and other lovely areas. Also, highly recommend exploration of Abiquiu and the local businesses. Travelers will enjoy a lovely, nostalgic stay in the sweet Amelia. However, not for those yearning for the "solitude" version of soul-seeking."

"There is so much beauty in the landscape. Casita de Chuparosa was a serene, comfortable place to allow Mitch and I to explore. Jeff & Marilyn thought of everything and made us feel beyond welcome and at home. Marilyn you have a lovely presence. Countless thanks for the best birthday in many years!"
