Cozy and romantic, this private guest house is situated on the bank of the Rio Grande River. The private flagstone patio has its own custom natural hot water mineral tub, which overlooks the rio and the sacred Turtleback Mountain. The home is located in the historic hot springs district of TorC, which has recently had much national media coverage due to its quirky retro atmosphere and the nearby future spaceport. Due to the unobstructed expansive views of diverse desert chaparral and Turtleback Mt., one gets the feeling of remoteness; however, within three blocks, one may discover art galleries, coffee shops, restaurants, local grocery, banks, antique, junk and book stores. While watching out the wall of windows in the Great Room, one can observe wildlife such as beavers, coyotes, raccoons, bobcat, and a never ending stream of migratory birds that use the Rio Grande as their super highway, while the Turtleback turns crimson in the late afternoon sun. This true adobe home is furnished with antiques, local art, and oriental rugs. The fully equipped kitchen, with copper farm sink and upgraded appliances is all you need to cook a gourmet meal with the world renown Hatch green chile. Hatch is only a half hour’s drive away. Come to tube, kayak, golf, swim, hike, fish, explore, bike, or just relax and take in the view. There is something for everyone.

One of my most enjoyable birthdays spent soaking up the healing waters of the hot springs while enjoying the bird life and the spectacular views of Turtle Back mountain. It is truly a hidden gem and wonderful hosts!
Great location on the river, great little town with all the amenities you need, great casita (very well appointed), and great owners (Sally & Ken). Would definitely recommend and would like to return someday.
La Casita Del Rio
This place was awesome! We loved the ambiance of the area. The Casita was very private and relaxing. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thanks, for a wonderful few days wish it could have been longer!
Absolutely wonderful experience. The casita was a true delight. The evening soak in the tub overlooking the Rio Grande was the highlite of every day. So much to see in the area, we couldn't get to it all. I guess we'll just have to go back! Thanks Ken and Sally for your exceptional , gracious hospitality. Lookung forward to the next time.
A Slice of Heaven on the Rio Grande
My husband and I stayed at this extraordinary private guest house in Truth or Consequences for my birthday. It was absolutely everything I had hoped for and more. The location, smack dab on the Rio Grande, is beyond stunning. It was delightful to wake up every morning to the glorious river and see ducks, osprey, and hawks. What an incredibly beautiful and peaceful place. I so needed some time to rest and rejuvenate and this was the perfect place to do that. I went through withdrawal when I returned home. Thankfully, Sally and Ken's guesthouse is only a three hour drive away and we found an excuse to return in one month!
