Downtown location...Awaken to the sound of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad & see & smell the smoke as it passes by drinking coffee on the front porch. Only a 2-5 minute walk to the station, dining and shopping. A short hike (0.5mi) bike ride or drive to the Chama River (1.5 mi) or Sergent's Wildlife (1 mi). Mountain/road biking, fishing, hunting, hiking, photography, horseback riding, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing all minutes away at Sergent's Wildlife Refuge 1 mile away.
Wild Horse Casino, Dulce, NM, is 30 minutes away (26 mi).
Georgia O'Keeffe's Ghost Ranch and museum is 50-60 minutes away (1 hour).
Pagosa Springs, CO is 50 minutes away (48 mi of some of the most beautiful driving in the country!!). Enjoy the hot springs and the Wolf Creek ski resort, which gets some of the most snow in the lower 48!! A few GREAT breweries in town. Currently my favorite is Riff Raff. Some good outdoor/mtn bike shops too! Both "Ski and Bow Rack" & "Mountain Country Sports" have treated me well. There is a small airport.
Durango, CO with the Durango Silverton Railroad, Mesa Verde National Park, and all outdoor activities with its own skiing/snowboarding mountain, is 2 hrs away (110mi), with an airport..
Taos and Santa Fe, known for their arts and mountain sports are 2 hrs away, and both with airports.
Albuquerque, 3 hrs away, has the closest International Airport (called the Sunport), plenty of casinos, a skytram, which is the longest in the country at 2.7 miles and lifts you into the Sandia Mountains to a height of 10,378 ft, a wildlife zoo and aquarium, as well as the Albuquerque Isotopes, a AAA affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. Remember, where ever you drive to/from this house, you have a BEAUTIFUL drive.
Other Activities: Regardless of your destination or desired activity, Chama is ideal, with plenty to do within the town, and easy access to all the surrounding areas. You can enjoy ANY outdoor activity in Chama or in the surrounding areas. Although a 2 hr drive seems like a long time, the beautiful drives of redrock and mountain vistas, wildlife viewing, and overall tranquility make driving enjoyable and a memorable part of your vacation! The home has a convenient location in town, and Chama is central to Taos, Santa Fe, Dulce, Pagosa Springs, and Durango.!
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I was introduced to Chama, NM when I was working on the Navajo Reservation from 2002-2007. A colleague of mine bought a house in Chama and after I visited once, I fell in love with the area as it was a stark contract to the painted desert, but both provided a variety of outdoor activities in different environments. I bought the home in 2003 and began fixing it up in 2005, and did not finish until 2008, after I had already returned to Massachusetts, where I currently live. I am also a graduate of Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT.
Why the Owner Chose Chama, NM, USA:
This is one of the oldest homes remaining in Chama. It is a gambrel style victorian and was built in 1882. Records indicate that the builder of the home was a conductor of the D&RG railroad. There is more history related to this man and his family located in the home. The house has been completely remodeled, but strong effort was made to keep the details and charm accurate to the era. If you look closely during your stay, you will be able to spot some of the original features of the home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is the last home on Terrace Ave/Main St in Chama, with views of the Cumbres Pass from all north windows and the decks. You can see the train pass by in the morning, as the tracks are directly across the street, and the depot, dining and shopping are all a 5 mintue walk from the home. There is plenty of parking behind the garage on Maple St. or along the side of the property on 1st St...enough to easily accomodate 30' trailers/motorhomes but is currently without hookups. It is easy accessible in the Winter, as all town roads are plowed by the state.
