Why Elizabeth Clemens chose New Mexico

Our Santa Fe-based family purchased the property and built the home in the early 1990's as weekend getaway and gathering place for extended family and family friends. It's been a perfect place for adults to relax and kids to enjoy being outside. Our family has gotten years of enjoyment out of the home and surrounding area and we hope that your family enjoys it just as much as ours has.

Can't say enough good things about this place!

  • 5 of 5

If the peace and comfort of the house aren't enough to bring you back, then the herd of 35+ elk grazing in the meadow will! This is a one of a kind property! Add in the hummingbirds, red winged black birds and white tail deer and you have a nature lover's dream.

Perfect country respite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here when riding the Cumbres-Toltec train and Pagosa Springs. Great house - nicely decorated and comfortable. Had enough linens, towels, etc for a family of 7 and the kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed. Kids had a great time on the water.

Great place in unique location

  • 5 of 5

Well designed place with all the amenities off the beaten path. We loved drinking wine on the dock in the evening and looking for wildlife. The stars out at night were amazing to see for city folk such as us. Enjoyed the pond and mounting biking in the neighborhood. Hope to come back.

Relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four, 10 year old and 2 year old enjoyed our stay as my husband took a class at the Chama Depot. We had all the amenities we needed and my daughter got to enjoy some serious rowing in the rowboat. You were forthcoming about the water, that was really the only downfall. Nothing we couldn't handle though! Overall, I was very pleased and appreciate you allowing us the opportunity to stay here. We plan on making another trip next year!!
