"I live here locally and recommended that my parents stay at the casita while they visited me from out of town. We were all thoroughly impressed by the accommodations, hospitality, and the gorgeous setting. Elizabeth, Andrew, and David went out of their way to make all of us feel comfortable and welcome. This is a very versatile option for lodging, as it offers a high level of comfort and convenience in a remote, wilderness setting. Opportunities for hiking are indeed limitless, as the website promises. Our 2 night stay flew by, I highly recommend that you stay as long as possible to be able to appreciate the setting fully. This will definitely be the only option I will consider from now on when receiving visitors from out of town."

"It is difficult to explain the beauty and serenity of Vista de Lago. It was a perfect spot for relaxation and time with family. Sitting on the porch over looking lake Abiquiu Lake was a morning and evening treat! The accommodations were just as promised, beautiful and clean. We did spend a day site seeing, but returned to Vista de Lago and did not feel the need to leave again. Thank you for a memorable vacation."

"My wife and I just spent several days in the Ranch Casita. It was raining when we got there and had been for most of the day. Due to bad road conditions Andrew and Elizabeth (the owners) met us at the beginning of the ranch road where we left our car until the next day. When we got to the casita it was late in the evening. The waning day was drizzly, cold, and grey and my wife was not sure that I had made a good decision in choosing this place. She was not very happy. I was discouraged because she was not happy. The next day dawned with a beautiful blue sky, birds chirping outside, and pleasant temperatures. In this new light we realized that the casita was beautifully appointed, quite quaint, and comfortable. The new day brought a whole new attitude and appreciation for this amazing place. This is a small, active ranch eight miles from the nearest power line. It is not a "dude ranch". It is really a retreat spot for the mind and the spirit. Just sitting out on the front deck and soaking up the sun and the view was rejuvenating. We would drive back down the lane a little ways and just explore the land and the edge of the creek. It was unbelievably peaceful and relaxing. A couple of nights we went back down the lane to a big open area and stretched lawn chairs out to watch the sky. Breathtaking. I would do my morning meditation and contemplative silence on the sleeping deck up in the brush behind the casita. The silence (except for some peaceful chickens and the occasional lowing of a cow) and the sense of a caring presence was extremely moving. If you are a person or a couple that longs to spend some time in the presence of a loving and powerful Creator, that longs to get away from the myriads of distractions- electronic and otherwise- that abound in today's world; then I cannot recommend this place enough. It moved our heart- the place and the people. On a lighter note, when the owners tell you that the lane is impassable because of rain...believe them and when the sign says "No Vehicles Beyond This Point"...heed it. My wife, who wasn't real happy at first when we got there, cried when we left."
