Private 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath On The Chama River With 360º Mountain View
I am an abstract painter and I moved to Abiquiu, NM about 3 1/2 years ago. I fell in love with the beautiful area and the artist community. The community is warm and friendly and it seems that Abiquiu has become the new hot spot of NM. Most people are not that familiar with the area. The landscape is filled with red rock mountains, and blue mountain ranges. The Sangre de Cristo mountains are the backdrop for the casita and most of the year they are snow capped against that western blue sky. Ghost Ranch and Georgia O'Keefe's home are in Abiquiu.
Susan purchased this Guest House in 2012
Why Susan chose Abiquiu
I did not intend to move to NM. I was visiting friends and decided to look at property for the fun of it. When I entered the 24 acres right on the river and my beautiful home which was originally built by a Chicago architect and his partner , I knew I was home. Both the casita and my home are filled with light and no matter which window you gaze out of the view is spectacular. I could not get the property out of my mind. The casita was a bonus as it is a wonderful space for family and friends to unwind and it gives me the opportunity to rent it out to new people exploring the area. I love meeting my interesting guests and hope that they enjoy the space as much as I.
What makes this Guest House unique
Abiquiu is only 50 minutes out of Santa Fe and about 1 hour and 15 minutes to Taos. We are also only 50 minutes from Los Alamos. There is a superb chef owner restaurant that has opened in Abiquiu called Arioso. Lunch and dinner reservations must be made online and you bring your own beverage and aperitif to be enjoyed with your delightful meal. The Chef Julian goes out of his way to create 4 courses that are divine. The reataurant is very close to Viento del Rio. There is hiking, rafting , and kayaking. Abiquiu Lake which recently put in a new beach is only 20 minutes away. A wonderful art gallery called the Rising Moon gallery has local and international artists work. Jaye Buros , who is the proprietor and herself an artist has a wide variety of entertainment at the gallery from authors talks, gallery openings and music through the area.

Great experience! Thank you!
high desert jewel
Both this sweet casita, in its stunning location, AND Susan, the owner/manager, are jewels in the desert. You will be well cared for by both!
A great location, house, and host. Quiet, peaceful, scenic, convenient. Loved it.
I’m not great at reviews but this place was just what we needed to get away . Susan was a wonderful host and the casita it’s even cuter in real life ! The view is fantastic I only wish we’d planned a longer trip !
Thank you, loved having you here at Viento del Rio.
We had a really wonderful time. The property is close to all the things one wants to see and do!
It's a really smart and excellent property with lovely views. Brilliant!
Thank you for your wonderful review, absolutely to the point. Hope that you will return and thank you for choosing Viento del Rio.
Abiquiu is a town of interesting art, gorgeous scenery & lovely hospitable people. This casita is beautiful & in a central location for easy access to all the area has to offer. Susan, the owner, is delightful & welcoming. We’ll be back for sure!
