Casa Alegra is spacious yet quite cozy with a great room, two bedrooms, two baths, Saltillo tile throughout, a fully equipped kitchen and an oversized covered deck which is cool even on the hottest days. We have a large yard fully surrounded with privacy fencing, an entry courtyard and attached two car garage.
From the moment you leave the interstate and begin your 12 mile drive toward Cochiti Lake, you'll realize you're entering a different world. It is truly a stunning drive as you head towards the Jemez Mountains. Our home is located in the community of Cochiti Lake which is approximately 5600' altitude. Less than five minutes away is the beautiful Cochiti Lake golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones with it's driving range, practice greens and clubhouse. In addition, there is Cochiti Lake itself which is one of the 10 largest earth-fill dams in the United States. Recreation includes boating, windsurfing, camping, picnicking, fishing and a swim beach. Just a few minutes farther is the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument and hiking trails along with Pueblo de Cochiti on whose land all of these wonderful things exist. It is their generous stewardship which allows us to share their land.
There is a quiet here that calms the soul, heals the spirit and rejuvenates the weary body. We're 30 minutes from Santa Fe and about 40 minutes from Albuquerque. Both cities are unique and fabulous in their own rights. I believe however, the essence of NM is in its land and its people. It would take volumes to do adequate justice to northern New Mexico.
This house is all on one level and may be easier for those with limited mobility. There is one step at the front door. There is one step into the garage and one onto the deck. One of the baths has a large walkin shower.
Internet services are limited at this location. Currently, Verizon is the only reliable provider and they do NOT offer an unlimited plan for this area. So for those folks who need constant internet connection, we would have to say it is not available. We did try to offer wi-fi, but very quickly found that it incurred costs of $300 to $500. per renter. As a result, this service was removed.
We look forward to sharing our vacation home with you.
