The Glorieta Mesa runs directly in front of the windows of the log home. The mesa changes in color as the day progresses and the weather changes.

I believe it is one of the most beautiful views in New Mexico.

Breezes are very good the majority of the time. Of course, there is central heat. This is a big place. And the price is fair.

Keywords: 2nd Home Vacation Rental. There is a wide dirt road up to the homes in the area. It is decently maintained by the County. Cars, trucks and SUV’s have made it safely to my home. However, in the Winter, I cannot predict snow so it is better to have all wheel or 4 wheel drive. Cables work as well. Log homes in Bew Mexico are in the mountains. I am at 8200 feet in elevation; therefore, logically it is an upward climb to reach me. The views are beautiful. It is up to the renters to discern their vechicles’ capablies. As I said this log home is the best of two experiences . It is located in a wilderness atmosphere yet 33 miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Not far in my opinion and experience. Takes me 12 minutes to get down the mountain. But, I know the road well. My recommendation is that you arrive here before dark. Because imagination on the forest road can make some people uneasy. In the light, it isn’t scary at all. The road curves and climbs in some places. I live here alone with all that comes with it and I have never been intimidated with the road. Beautiful place and views. It has been very popular with large families. Check weather projections before you come. If snow is coming, your vehicle should handle that. Otherwise and during all other seasons, regular cars have done very well here. I have had Mercedes and Lexus models here. German and Austrian cars are built for the mountains. County maintains the roads. Dirt road is wide and decently maintained. And as I stated before, there are other log homes up here and a few ranches.
