About Beth Ferguson
I moved to northern New Mexico in 1999, built my home and guest house on 15 acres of land on a mesa within the Piedre Lumbre Land Grant area across Abiquiu Lake from Ghost Ranch, within the arms of Cerro Pedernal. The mountain is sacred to many locals and indigenous peoples. Georgia O'Keeffe is quoted as saying that god told her if she painted it enough, it would be hers. Many of us are drawn to paint it; in fact, I titled a favorite painting "It's Mine Too!"
Beth Ferguson purchased this Studio in 2000

Everything you need for a stay. The view is Beautiful!
Padernal Casita is amazing!
Beth's little casita is beyond charming! Amazing views, uber comfortable.
This casita is perfect for one or two
people. The views are phenomenal from every angle—lots of windows to see the sun rise and set and to see the stars at night (if you’re inside). Being outside is amazing. The place is furnished well both inside and out.
Beth is a wonderful host. Can’t wait to stay here again!
We spent a few days in late August here in the Pedernal Casita. It is a special place, and we enjoyed our stay. If you prefer crowds and city-style entertainment, this is not the best spot for you. We enjoyed star-gazing (no lights to spoil the viewing), and exploring the area.
Amazing views and a great setting for relaxing.
This little Casita near Abiquiu was just what we needed to recharge our spirits! The quiet, solitude and peace we experienced were so healing! Beautiful surroundings, amazing views...not to mention the stars at night! Perfect place for people looking to get away from it all.
Come here for quiet, star gazing, restorative beauty. Come here to do creative work -- writing, painting, etc.
