About Ron McGowan or Dana McDaniel

Dana and Ron are artists. They built the casita and their home, located on the same property, with their own hands beginning in 1982. The casita was once their pottery studio but has been completely remodeled and updated into the beautiful space it is today. Their studio adjoins the casita but is accessed from a different driveway.

Ron McGowan or Dana McDaniel purchased this cottage in 1982

Why Ron McGowan or Dana McDaniel chose New Mexico

We love Corrales. It offers the convenience of the greater Albuquerque area with a quiet, rural atmosphere. We bought this property for the views and have remained because of the artist community. When we built, neighbors and friends helped each other raise roofs, lay adobes and brick floors and pour concrete. It's a special and unique village.

What makes this cottage unique

Corrales is a unique village located in a rural atmosphere but very convenient to all Albuquerque has to offer while being 1 hour from central Santa Fe. The Casita is a quiet , secure, well-appointed space ideal for a mature couple who enjoys outdoor activities, exploring different cultural sites and just relaxing and experiencing the uniqueness of New Mexico

Corrales Casita With Stunning Views Of Sandia Mountains

Charming casita in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this casita for a bit more than three weeks and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The casita is relatively new construction, well-maintained, and a quiet get-away. The view of the Sandias from the patio is amazing; wildlife abounds in the morning and evenings, and the neighborhood is a quite one. I worked in ABQ and my drive time to downtown was about 35 minutes; well worth the extra time in the car for such a nice location and casita. I would highly recommend staying here for short or long-term stays.

Comfortable, quiet, and delightful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent! We were impressed with the comfort, roominess, and cleanliness of the space. We were able to watch the hot air balloons this morning as we had breakfast on our private patio with a great view of the Sandia Mountains.

A true HomeAway

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable casita and it is beautifully decorated. Great view of the Sandia Mountains. Everything we needed was provided Ron and Dana were great.

Handicap accessibility could be improved by adding grab bars in the shower and bathroom. Also building a small ramp to the front porch. Otherwise, it was fine. Thanks so much!

Winter Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our three-week winter stay in this Corrales casita was a delight. Although it was not Balloon Fiesta season, we often saw hot air balloons flying over the area. As many as seven balloons at a time were logging hours and enjoying the view from aloft while on the ground we spotted roadrunners, rabbits, and quail scurrying through the native landscaping beside the casita’s patio. In the distance, the Sandias were covered with snow and skiers. We saw the skiers up close when we celebrated the New Year in the Mexican restaurant at the base of the tramway. The casita felt like home with its Southwestern charms--brick floors, handmade pottery, original art, comfy red couches, and basketry placed on high in interesting spaces. The well-equipped kitchen was perfect for steaming traditional tamales and heating red or green chile sauces, brought back from the famous Range Café in nearby Bernalillo. We now live in the Midwest and miss living in the Albuquerque area. A lengthy visit to the Corrales casita made us yearn to return often. Thanks to personable, helpful hosts Ron and Dana our stay was relaxing and memorable. This casita is now on our permanent To-Do-Again Bucket List
