About the property

1 Bedroom Retreat With Fabulous Views And Plenty Of Room To Roam. We do Monthly!

Charming farm cottage in the heart of the Corrales green belt. So close, yet so far away. Property backs up to the main Corrales Lateral irrigation canal 'Acaquia'. Very quiet and peaceful, yet so close to all the restaurants and shopping you could want.

There is so much to experience in this area, Old Town, Zoo - Bio Park, Butterfly pavilion, Rio Grande nature center, museums, skiing, music, and very close to ballon fiesta park. Santa Fe is only 45 minutes away with all it has to offer.

Endless walking, horseback riding and biking opportunities. Situated on 1.5 acres, surrounded by gorgeous estate properties.

Walking distance to the Rio Grande and Bosque. This small house was used as an original Farm House, back when things were smaller and simpler. We recently completely renovated this little cottage but have just started on the grounds.

The 1.5 acres are completely open at this time for your use. Plenty of space for kids, RV's, toys, etc. The acreage adjacent to this property is used by a local Organic farm.

All the comforts of home await you. Romantic Adobe fireplace w/wood stove. Fully functional kitchen, just bring your own supplies.

Bedroom has queen pillow top bed. Brand new full size sleeper sofa in the living room.

Bathroom has tub/shower with all the towels and linens supplied.

Full size washer and dryer in the laundry room. Two car garage for covered parking and plenty of space to park RV's or toys.

We do Monthly Rental too ! Most affordable property in Corrales.

For Ballon Fiesta Guests - The nearest shuttle location, is at Cottonwood Mall. Which is about 6 1/2 miles from the Turquoise Cottage.

The Ballon Fiesta Park itself, is located about 10 miles away.

About The Turquoise Cottage

Hello from the Turquoise Cottage ! We make outdoor Musical Instruments nearby, for Parks and other outdoor spaces. I grew up in a small town in New Mexico and have always loved the areas up and down the Rio Grande.

The Turquoise Cottage purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why The Turquoise Cottage chose Corrales

We are Native New Mexicans and have always loved Corrales and the areas along the Rio Grande. Our Casita has all the charm of the original farming community, that Corrales is.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Authentic Corrales farm. In the agricultural area of the Rio Grande . Lots of room to roam or ride horses and walk dogs. Next door is a 5-acre organic farm.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This totally feels like a little farmhouse from back in the day! We loved that it is not to pretentious but still really cute. A great place to explore from. Really convent to get to Santa Fe from.

It's great having a garage for out toys, that is really rare for VRBO.

Love what they are doing with it !

This was our third trip to the Turquoise Cottage. This was our first fall adventure there. What a scenic beautiful spot with the hot air balloon’s and the fall colors surrounding the area. What a serene relaxing location so impressive.this time of year.

Perfect Place to Call Home During Relocation!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 50 Days at the Turquoise Cottage while relocating back to the area. Having lived in Corrales for 20+ Years, I knew that I wanted to stay in an area I was familiar with. The cottage was the perfect solution while starting a new job, waiting for the closing of our home, and to have the peace and quiet that the tranquility of Corrales offers. The cottage had everything I needed which allowed me to concentrate on the things that I needed to while working and doing the administrative things that come with purchasing a home. All I had to do was bring my clothes and groceries. The place is all inclusive and has everything that is needed to live for weeks to months at a time! The best feature (besides the complete privacy and quiet as well as sunsets), was the resident owl in the willow tree outside the cottage. I made it an evening routine to go out and see him. If he wasn't there, he was sure to "hoot" when he arrived, prompting me to go out for a visit. All in all, if you are looking for a great place to stay, the Turquoise Cottage is the answer!

Vacation Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Turquoise Cottage in the past year. The owners have gone out of their way to provide all of the amenities of home. The Corrales area is a beautiful and scenic delight, and the local businesses are home-grown and very friendly. This location is very convenient to the Albuquerque area. The only thing we wish we had was more time to enjoy this beautiful setting!

Charming Cottage in the rural town of Corrales

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 10 nights here. A very private location. With a charming southwest feel. So calming and so very quiet. And yet right down the street from the charming town of Corrales.

This cottage is bigger than the pictures suggest. Very well furnished. And the added ingredient of a garage. So welcoming in 25 degree weather.

A very big thank you to Mike and Donna, the owners of The Turquoise Cottage. We arrived

at night and needed their expertise with directions.

It's a wonderful neighborhood...a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Perhaps, the property could be 'dressed up' with some local flavor in landscaping. We enjoyed our five days and travelled throughout N M. The last morning delighted us with balloons flying right over the Turquoise property. Brilliant! Corrales is a sweet area. Thank you VRBO!

Everything a traveller could want!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfectly clean with everything we needed and had expected from the ad. Many unexpected extras too. Plenty of blankets and pillows. Basic medison cabinet supplies and even yogurt in the fridge. The best extra was sitting on the back porch with our morning coffee watching more than 100 beautiful hot air balloons fly by.

We really enjoyed the town of Corralles and the historical sites we visited. So many shops with locally crafted items for sale. Apple orchard open house was fun and lots of places to eat.

Of course we visited the Balloon Fiesta in Albuequerque which is easily reached from the cottage. Too many local activities to list. Let's just say we left a tired but happy couple.

Thank you Donna and Mike
