Property description

If you are looking to relax and soak up fresh mountain air, Paradise Creek is the best of Northern New Mexico in the mountains of Questa. Questa is a small, quaint, heritage rich town that is just north of Taos about 20 enchanting miles. It is also the place where you turn east, at the only light in town, and drive 10 miles east to Red River - a mountain resort.

Questa is located on the Enchanted Circle scenic highway, near the confluence of the Rio Grande and the Red River and is at the western base of the Taos Mountains. To the southeast lies Flag Mountain, a northwestern spur of the group of mountains that includes Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico. To the north and west, you will be struck by the Rio Grande Gorge and how it cuts a volcanic plateau. A great private place to relax.

Hikers enjoy the beauty of the mountains with a variety of different hikes available only minutes away. Fishermen relax and enjoy the quiet serenity of Eagle Rock lake only l/4 mile away. Northern New Mexico has an incredible number of fishing spots. ATV trails are numerous. Goose Creek and Goose Lake is just 15 minutes away. To the South, 10 miles away, relax and fish at the local's favorite fishing spot - The John Dunn Bridge in Arroyo Hondo. Take a drive 10-15 miles north of the property and you will be in awe of the Valle Vidal or the Wild Rivers. Visit Taos 26 miles south - take time to see the Taos Pueblo, a national historic landmark along with many other historical sites.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Patricia Rael is a member of the Rael Family. Her father was the historian of Questa, a school teacher and writer. Her mother and father raised 6 children. She remembers her father inviting the school children to enjoy the land.. At an Easter Egg Hunt, holding her dad's hand, she decided one day she would have a an affordable beautiful place in the country for people to get away from the city and have enough room to enjoy nature and each other.

Why the Owner Chose Questa, NM, USA:
I was fortunate to have inherited this history rich property from my parents. One of the acres which is now the main house was an artist's studio converted to an open loft and easily sleeps 6 people

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I enjoy the beauty of the mountains closeby, the large cottonwood trees, the small creek that weaves through the property and the serenity and privacy - a place of peace and space to relax and not be burdened by the city noise.
