Overview

About the property

House, Studio + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Located in Bosque Farms, NM (a quick and easy 20 minutes south of Albuquerque) this 2200 square foot adobe building is filled with New Mexico charm. The large, two story building with its high ceilings and seamless backdrop is often used as a photographer's studio, performance space, mini film stage or just a place to party and relax. The setting is rural/rustic yet close to amenities.

The sleeping area in the studio is in the upstairs loft accessed by a spiral staircase and unfortunately is not handicapped accessible. (The loft may not be suitable for adventurous toddlers as well) There is a comfortable king bed, leather couch and TV viewing/sitting area upstairs. A twin bed and a double 'day bed' are in the great room on the ground floor along with plenty of desk area to spread out on in the office area. A folding crib and high chair are available as well. The studio is designed as a large open space. Limited privacy makes the building suitable only for family or close-friend groups.

The building has an upstairs deck with a sun chairs and an umbrella. It is a suitable spot for stargazing or sunset watching. The downstairs has wrap around porches and is a great place to have happy hour or make a little BBQ.

The downstairs bathroom is fairly basic with a step in shower. (no bath) There are laundry facilities nearby in the town of Los Lunas.

It has been a filming location for numerous advertisements and film projects including 'America's Most Wanted' and the AMC TV series 'Breaking Bad'.

It is situated behind the owner's 1930's adobe 'homestead' house on a 4 acre, small, hobby farm. There are sheep, and other animals on the property. Small, friendly dogs on a leash will be considered as potential guests. Please ask first. (We have our own dogs, cats and free range chickens to consider!) Neighbors are nearby though in this 'sleeper community'.

There is a small service kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, hotplate, coffee maker and toaster oven. All dishes and utensils are available for use. A highchair is available.

There are two large grocery stores as well as a several restaurant selections 10 minutes south in the town of Los Lunas. Dining options in Bosque Farms include several standard, fast-food options and 3 regional, New Mexican food choices. Numerous choices are available north 20 minutes into Albuquerque.

The drive to Albuquerque is quick and simple on Interstate 25. Just 10 minutes away there is a station for the new Rail Runner passenger train. (Please note there is no other public transportation available.) Hard Rock Casino/Spa/Concert venue is a quick 10-minute drive. You can get a massage, see a concert and loose your wages all in one beautiful spot! Isleta Pueblo -with a church dating to 1680’s- is a Native American village just 10 minutes away. The Albuquerque Airport is a quick 20 min. drive as is the University of New Mexico and countless museums and galleries. Sandia Peak Ski Area and the Sandia Tramway is within an easy 30-40 minute drive. Our town is almost exactly in the center of New Mexico and is an excellent springboard for all of your site seeing destinations throughout the state.

The community itself is a small farming town with multiple opportunities for outdoor recreation. There are miles of level, off-road cycling,(ask about loaner bikes) and easy hiking trails through the riverside cottonwood forest. (The 'Bosque'). The Rio Grande valley is an important flyway for migrating birds. November through March the area is home to large flocks of sand hill cranes and several types of geese and duck. The village has its own rodeo arena with many events, a public tennis court and playground, a small library, a paved cycling trail and numerous equestrian pathways. Horse boarding may be available nearby. There is a large, gated-access locked entry for parking large trailers or RVs.

The sleeping area in the studio is in the upstairs loft accessed by a spiral staircase and unfortunately is not handicapped accessible. (The loft may not be suitable for adventurous toddlers as well) There is a comfortable king bed, leather couch and TV viewing/sitting area. A twin bed and a double 'day bed' is in the great room on the ground floor. A folding crib and high chair are available as well.

The building has an upstairs deck with a sun chairs and an umbrella. It is a suitable spot for stargazing or sunset watching. The downstairs has wrap around porches and is a great place to have happy hour or make a little BBQ.

The downstairs bathroom is fairly basic with a step in shower. (no bath) There are laundry facilities nearby in the town of Los Lunas.

We're certain that you will really enjoy the building and the setting. We have many repeat guests who wouldn't stay anywhere else. (Sorry- we are not able to host large parties or weddings.)

It was everything and more!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cyndy was a fabulous host and went out of her way to make our family feel at home. Never have we felt so comfortable in someone else's home as we did in this beautiful loft!!

Cyndy's description was spot on, the comforts were endless, the lighting was fabulous and the decor was amazing!!!

We will definitely be booking again in the near future.

Fabulous, peaceful, spacious and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bosque Farms. We felt very welcome there and were so pleased with the space. It became a bit of a joke that where ever we needed to go - Albuquerque, dinner, movies, and all the errands we had to run - were all 20 to 30 minutes away. Unlike some of the other reviewers we never heard any of the 2 and 4 legged residents although we enjoyed visiting them. Great, relaxing experience!

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about our stay, from the cabin itself, to the setting, to the location. The atmosphere of the cabin was quirky and artistic in a very good way. It was great to stay in a place that was so refreshingly unpredictable. Our hosts seemed to think of everything to enable our stay to be comfortable and smooth, from the comfortable bed to all the little things that you normally have to go out and purchase, like shampoo, dish soap and sponge, coffee, all provided for us.

WARM AND LOTS OF CHARACTER

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property, Cyndy, is very warm and gracious. We felt right at home. The thing that stands out, however, is that the property has tons of character. The inside guest quarters are Much larger than we expected. Outside, we enjoyed visiting with Steve the Rooster, Peaches the Whippet and the several sheep on the property. We had a great stay. It was everything we hoped for and more. The property was also close to several Great authentic New Mexican restaurants that we can't get at home. Barela's, Benny's and Teofilos were all excellent! If you happen to make it up to Santa Fe, then checkout The Shed. Another fantastic restaurant!

There was also relaxing on the beautiful wood upstairs outside balcony and taking an occasional turn on the swing hanging from a giant tree. Overall, in all honesty, I would have to say that the choice to stay at Bosque Farms was better than a hotel by a factor of 100! It also was cheaper. The owner should consider raising her prices:)
