Pedernal Casita at Abiquiu Lake is one room (420 square feet) that includes kitchen facilities, WC & shower; double wall bed; work, reading and savoring spaces.
Studio/casita ideal for a professor on sabbatical, or an artist, scholar, writer, hiker who wants quiet and seclusion and opportunities to design adventures. The Murphy bed is a regular double with eleven inch gel-foam mattress, so if this space fits your style, the casita can accommodate two adults.
See the breathtaking views through new designer windows or by sitting outside on one (or all) of three open portals (porch/patio). North: Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu Lake [charcoal broiler on this side]. East flag stone patio shows northern views and toward Jemez Mts and Santa Fe (my house in foreground) [Outdoor eating table and chairs are here]. South: Cerro Pedernal, Polvedara, and nearby mesas. (great winter sun). Movable chairs for your preferences.
These same wondrous views can be seen on hikes and by driving. We're in the midst of two National Forests (Carson & Santa Fe), BLM land and two Wilderness Areas (Chama River Canyon & San Pedro Parks Wilderness areas.) Geological, historical, archeological wonders.
Elevation of casita about 6500 feet. Pedernal is just under ten thousand feet. Dry, sunny climate.
Within less than an hour's drive you can visit the Benedictine Monastery Christ in the Desert and Islamic mosque and educational center Dar el Islam. Various local churches and other worshiping groups welcome visitors.
