Property description

This is a beautiful, secluded log cabin nestled on three acres of forest land in the mountains above Jemez Springs at an elevation of approximately 8,300 feet. We have enjoyed this wonderful place and want to share with other friends, families and guests.

Located at mile marker 33 on Hwy 4, the cabin is 1 hour 45 minutes from the ABQ International Airport and 1 hour 20 minutes from downtown Santa Fe.

Upon arrival, you will find an array of amenities to enjoy during your relaxing mountain retreat, including:
1. an open floor plan with exposed log beams;
2. There are 3 bedrooms and a loft area, which are organized as follows:
a. 1st floor – King size bed
b. 2nd floor- Double bed
c. 2nd Floor – triple bunk (3 twins)
d. 2nd Floor Loft area – trundle bed (2 twins)
e. There is room in the loft, in the bunk room and in the living room to put the 2 air mattresses.
3. a dining room with seating for eight;
4. large windows to admire the beautiful vistas;
5. two full bathrooms;
6. a full kitchen, including a dishwasher
7. an outdoor grill;
8. a full laundry; and
9. a wood burning stove with pre-chopped wood outside.
- if you need basic groceries, Amanda’s, a small general store, located 7 miles south on Hwy. 4, has groceries, bait and tackle, and fishing licenses;

There are books, board games, video games, and movies catering to all ages. There is a flat screen TV, Blu-Ray player and XBox 360, along with basic internet access. Cable and basic television are not available. The cabin has very spotty cell reception, but has a landline with free long distance throughout the contiguous United States. Internet is also very unreliable but who needs it with all this?!

From the large front porch, which accommodates up to eight adults, you can enjoy incredible sunsets, star gazing and abundant wildlife. In the winter months, enjoy the view of the snow-capped ridge and sledding on the hill in the front of the cabin (two small sleds are provided).

Hiking is limitless, and the cabin is a perfect starting point for walks in the forest or strolls on the access road. The cabin is ten minutes from waterfalls and swimming at Jemez Falls and the East Fork Trail to the south. Fishing and hiking at Las Conchas is 10 minutes away to the north. Within 25 minutes you can visit Bandelier National Monument, the Valles Caldera or Fenton Lake. Within 30 minutes you can be in downtown Los Alamos in the north, skiing in Pajarito Ski Area or be in downtown Jemez Springs to the south.

The Village of Jemez Springs has great shopping flavored by local artists. There are great restaurants, including a real saloon where you can eat, drink and meet the locals. Also located in Jemez Springs is the famous hot springs and full service day spa where everyone on your trip can be pampered after a long day of enjoying the outdoors.

Enjoy the wonderful cabin with your friends and loved ones in this beautiful mountain setting. Have fun, enjoy the views, the air, and the peace and quiet.

We are willing to consider all events on our property. Please contact us regarding specific limitations and fees related to events.

NEED MORE ROOM? If you are planning a family or group gathering and don't want to be separated, our next-door neighbor also has space for six people. Her VRBO listing number is 482555 (Marsha's Writing Retreat). So go ahead and plan that family reunion, and be right next to each other in the mountains!
