About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful modern mountain cabin with all high end amenities INSIDE national forest.

Summer and Winter wonderland!

The home is all on one level - no stairs of any kind (except the exterior stairs down to the hutub) King bed in the master and two queen beds in the guest rooms - all plush pillow top beds.

Awesome master bath with giant cast iron tub, perfect for two if you don't feel like sitting in the hot tub :-)

Extreme privacy - this is one of the only properties like this in the Santa Fe area - a true mountain paradise get away, yet so close to town.

Out door enthusiasts will love it here, bring your mountain bikes in the summer and your cross country ski's in the winter, ski right out the front door!

The home has ample deck and patio space overlooking the creek and hot tub, perfect for out door entertaining.

Cool temps in the summer when downtown is hot! Encantado resort is right down the road for world class dining and spa services.

There is a 2 mile dirt road to the property and the last 1/2 mile is a little bumpy and it can get muddy or snowy depending on the weather...

Please note that an SUV or all wheel drive vehicle may be preferable in case of inclement weather, especially winter months when a 4x4 is needed.

Please read the reviews and check out the video tour!

About Brian Bodei

My name is Brian and I have lived in this paradise for over 17 years and now its time to share.

Brian Bodei purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Brian Bodei chose New Mexico

This is the only location thats this close to Santa Fe, inside the national forest, on a stream that affords total privacy and high quality of living. I feel so blessed to have been able to live up here all these years. I can never get over how beautiful Pacheco Canyon is!

What makes this cabin unique

This home was designed by and award winning designer - no boring architecture here. The home was planned to feel like the outdoors and indoors were one, and I truly think we succeeded. Sitting by the creek, watching the humming birds, having margaritas on the deck - or in the hot tub. Mountain biking and skiing right out the front door - endless miles of hiking and exploring, watching the birds - it never gets old! The only problem with staying up here is that you will not want to leave....Santa whaa?

Reviews

Wonderful mountain retreat close to Santa Fe!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 26, 2012

The Bear had a very hard time leaving this wonderful mountain retreat inside the Santa Fe National Forest! Thoughtfully appointed and extremely relaxing, the property made it hard to even want to venture the short ride to downtown Santa Fe – we could have spent our entire stay at the property and been completely content. We enjoyed wonderful hikes, relaxing soaks in the hot tub, incredible woodland views from the many windows, and restful slumber in the comfortable beds. All day (and night, when we chose to open the windows) we were serenaded by the pleasant babbling sound of the front yard brook – so incredibly peaceful. The very thoughtful owner had all sorts of guide books and hiking maps ready for our stay, and an extremely well-appointed kitchen to make meal prep a breeze. There are great local restaurants a short drive away, dramatic showings of hummingbirds, and a luxurious steam shower to ease away any aches from a busy day of hiking or sightseeing. Three bedrooms make this a great choice for a family or multiple couples. There were even friendly neighbor dogs that came to visit the Bear and offered to accompany us on a daily hike. We are already ready for another visit to Tesuque mountain cabin!

peaceful escape

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, clean and well kept. Instantly relaxing when you get there. The master bedroom is beautiful, opening up on the mountain stream, and I have not slept so well in months. My wife, kids, and I enjoyed the canyon tremendously and went for daily hikes, sat by the stream, and enjoyed the "cabin" (more like a well appointed home). Brian was awesome, super helpful, and always available. A beautiful, peaceful place to stay.

Quiet and relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is an upscale home with a rustic casual feel. We felt right at home immediately! The house is well stocked, both in the kitchen and in the bath. All the amenities of a hotel including a hair dryer. We slept, ate, napped, ate, walked, ate, hot tubbed, and slept again. Relaxation was the goal of this trip and we did accomplish it! While it is convenient to Santa Fe, this house in the woods is so captivating that you may not feel the need to go into town. We didn't. Thank you for sharing this treasure, Brian!

Excellent home in a beautiful secluded location.

  • 4 of 5

Brian was very kind and communicated everything that was needed. Beautiful and clean home with everything needed. The local creatures (hummingbirds, squirrels) are delightful too. Our labradors loved going for walks - there was so much to see and smell. Only one downside to this property - the last 1-mile road leading to the home is horrible, and the mile before that is a bit rough. I hope the roads get repaired as this is the only downside for this property.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin! It deserves all the rave reviews it has received! The house is extremely well equipped (kitchen, linens, books/maps, furniture) and clean. Brian was delightful, very helpful and responsive. He left several 10 pound bags of sugar, so we were able to keep the hummingbirds happy -- and there were many. Also, two cans of food for the other birds, who were delightfully demanding. The master suit was spacious and comfortable and our guests raved about the two guest rooms. The rustic environment, along with the stream running in front of the house, was as relaxing as advertised. We enjoyed several meals on the deck and enjoyed reading/relaxing out there as well. Lots of fun hikes right out the door. Tesuque has a couple very good restaurants we enjoyed. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because of the rough dirt road. It was more challenging than I had anticipated. One probably doesn't have to have a 4 wheel drive, but do need a vehicle with high clearance. It was real slow going the last half mile to the cabin. But, as other reviewers have stated, the cabin more than makes up for the road! Delightful experience.

Totally loved the experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights and loved every minute. It's is a phenominal cabin and location with every detail taken into account. We enjoyed sleeping with the doors/windows open listening to the water running and the sound of humming birds at sunset and sunrise. We hiked by the cabin one morning. Easy to get to nice trails and hikes. Easy to get to town for some fun. Honestly our family of four could have stayed in the cabin and not left. So peaceful! I wish I could live there!
