Canoncito Creek Retreat - a Hideaway Surrounded by Wilderness

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Just a few miles as the crow flies from Abiquiu, Cañones is an untouched hamlet at the end of a county road and at the mouth of a deep canyon.

Just over two miles into the canyon the Cañoncito Seco, a spring-fed creek (not dry at all) descends from high up on Polvadera Peak and flows into Cañones Creek. There, our Cañoncito Creek Retreat is a most comfortable location from which to explore large parts of Santa Fe National Forest. Or just to rest and relax.

The Retreat is a hideaway deep in the canyon surrounded by impressive mesas. No traffic can be heard or seen, privacy and peace are absolute.

Large herds of elk and wild turkey can be met on the few explored trails. Or even better, you cut your own trail through this spectacular wilderness. Abiquiu Lake, the Chama River Wilderness, Ghost Ranch are just a short (but sensational) drive away. Fish in the creek, search for wild mushrooms, collect colorful stones.

Excellent Get Away in New Mexico

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It was the maximum in relaxing, quiet, and peaceful. There are multiple decks to choose from for sitting outside and enjoying nature. The home is open and roomy. Very comfortable. We totally loved our stay and will return as soon as we have the opportunity. This retreat is one of the nicest get away's in New Mexico.

Nice place, well furnished. Huge windows that look to a beautiful setting. Road was recently maintained. It is a bit of a drive from pavement, but well worth it. The property is incredibly quiet and private. Close by to hiking.

We really enjoyed our stay! The house had plenty of space and was clean! The kitchen was pretty well equipped with just about everything we needed to cook a meal and relax! The numerous decks were incredibly relaxing and gave us the chance to enjoy all of the wildlife on the property and the surrounding views.

I would advise future guests to bring sleeping masks as there are no window treatments in any of the rooms to block out sunlight or moonlight. We were there during a time with full moon- and while it was gorgeous to see the views at night, we did experience some difficulty sleeping.

With that being said, this rental is perfect for hiking, enjoying nature, and having the chance to slow down. We are an incredibly busy couple and found that we were able to spend quality time together and unplug from our busy life. We were looking to get away from the demands of life and this rental gave us just that!

I definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay near Abiquiu and we hope to stay again!

Welcoming, beautiful, peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights and loved our time here. It is spacious, quiet, and comfortable. It is in a remote area, with amazing views, and great hiking right out of the back door. Once we arrived we never left, we enjoyed being there so much. The hike up the canyon is spectacular. Biggest ponderosa pines and fir trees I have ever seen. We will be back!

Canoncito Creek Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The house and surrounding area was beautiful. We had a little trouble finding the house in the rain, but once we arrived we had a great time. The weather cleared and we hiked the beautiful surrounding areas around Ghost Ranch, Chimney Rock, Plaza Blanca, Abiuqui Lake, Christ of the Desert Monastery, Echo Amphitheater and other areas. the location of the house was perfect for this. Thank you.
