Peace and Quiet!
This is a clean and private home backing to the Carson National Forest. We had everything we needed and enjoyed hiking nearby and evenings under the stars. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is a great place!
Perfect retreat with all the comfort
We loved our stay. Had a great hike, stared at the sky, dished in the hot tub, enjoyed el farolito, spent too much on groceries at Bodes. The owner was very responsive and nice.
This is a spectacular place in a beautiful valley just outside the town of El Rito. The night skies are breathtaking, and the peace and quiet of the days are broken only by the birdsong and buzzing of the bees in the surrounding grass and woods. Perfect for families looking to escape the city and keep the amenities of a modern house (plus hot tub for relaxing alone or playing with the kids) couples, or solitary artists looking for calm, quiet, and inspiration. Alicia was always just a text message away and very responsive. Can’t rate higher!
Serene, Comfortable and Beautiful
Beautiful home, property and setting. Incredibly quiet, peaceful and serene. Able to enjoy quality time with my family and much needed quiet time. Thank You!!
If you are lucky enough to stay here, you are lucky enough.
Casa Ambrosia is located in the heart of Northern New Mexico. An hour or less drive in any direction gets you to such diverse attractions as the Santa Fe Opera, skiing in Taos, swimming in Lake Abiquiu, fine dining, opera, museums, art galleries, and shopping in Santa Fe, high mountain hiking in meadows and along streams, desert cliff walks at Ghost Ranch, natural hot springs resort and spa at Ojo Caliente, ancient cliff dwellings and petroglyphs at Bandelier, and much more.
I grew up here in Northern New Mexico, and have spent many years exploring the wilderness areas nearby. Later I lived in exciting places like Washington DC and San Francisco. But eventually I felt called back home, and I haven't regretted it since. I find great solace in the wide open lands, vast blue skies, and I appreciate the diverse cultural history of this area very much.
Alicia purchased this House in 1998
Why Alicia chose El Rito
When I moved back to New Mexico I wanted to live somewhere peaceful and remote, yet not too far from civilization. El Rito was perfect. Nestled in a tranquil river valley, with countless trails to explore in the surrounding mountains, yet only an hour's drive to a hotspot like Santa Fe or Taos, I found the perfect balance. Years later, when I moved to Santa Fe for professional opportunities, I began renting Casa Ambrosia as a vacation home. For several years now, I have enjoyed sharing this nurturing home with it's beautiful natural surroundings with many guests, and it is my wish that many others may also experience the restorative possibilities that abound here.
What makes this House unique
Whether it's getting away from a busy job, wanting the peace and quiet of this serene place for rest and renewal, or looking for new adventures out in nature, this is a great place to visit. I love the amazing variety of terrain around here, from the high mountains with their meadows, lakes and streams, to the lower desert canyonlands with their colorful cliffs and magical rock formations. And with Santa Fe, Taos, Bandelier, and other interesting places so nearby, there's never a shortage of things to do or see. There's truly something for everyone to enjoy!
