                                                                  Perfect place for a reunion!!

                                                                  Ducky O.

                                                                  Would love to return!

                                                                  Roxy C.

                                                                  This is a BEAUTIFUL historical house and property with a helpful caretaker on the grounds. My granddaughter loved being able to play with his dogs and help feed the chickens. The area is within easy driving to many activities, shops, restaurants and groceries.

                                                                  I found the climate perfect, but one son-in-law experienced severe altitude sickness. Staying overnight at a lower altitude the night before arrival might help alleviate this issue.

                                                                  We prefer to do our own cooking and found the baking situation to be a bit of a challenge. Instructions for the oven would be helpful. The refrigerator and pantry were plenty large and having two sinks made it easy for several to cook at once...which we enjoy.

                                                                  Because it is cool at night, the abundance of windows and two standing air conditioners kept the house quite temperate. Doorways are low and steps abundant which is part of the charm of the building but took my taller sons-in-law a while to get used to. The lack of comfortable seating was something of a problem. The only place to play games is at the grand kitchen table, sitting on benches much like a picnic, which can be wearing on the back. Since there is no awning or pergola outside the wonderfully capacious window, it also got rather warm in that space playing games in the afternoon.

                                                                  There was a bucket of brochures on activities available in the area. However, our hiking experience and bird watching on the patio would have been enhanced by the presence of reference material on birds and wildflowers of New Mexico.

                                                                  The variety of bedroom sizes allowed a perfect fit for the eleven of us and the beds, linens and pillows are quite comfortable contrary to how they look in the photos. We found the three bathrooms, two with tubs as well as showers, delightful to be in and quite adequate for our needs. There are plenty of shelves, closets and hangers. The laundry facilities were a great bonus.

                                                                  I particularly enjoyed the flowers: roses, moonflowers, sage, sweet peas, wild raspberries (we ate some), hollyhocks, phlox and a grape vine. There had been iris and peonies earlier. The two llamas in the pasture added a picturesque charm to the whole place and the neighbors rooster was a treat to hear for this former farmer's daughter.

                                                                  It was a wonderful place to celebrate my birthday with family and I hope to return soon.

                                                                  Beautiful Retreat Getaway

                                                                  Julie and Rick L.Van Alstyne

                                                                  First steps into the front door had us speechless.

                                                                  Both the history of the home and exceptional decor took us mentally into another time and place. It is beautifully appointed with ample space for all. Our family of 11 had plenty of room to sleep and relax. Hector took great care of us, too. The children loved walking the grounds to check out the llamas and chickens. Flora and fauna were vividly colorful and enjoyable. The cooks in our family appreciated the well stocked kitchen and commercial grade gas range. The grounds included picnic tables, grills and a firepit which allowed us to take in the fresh mountain air.

                                                                  We can't wait for our next stay at this uniquely incredible home!

                                                                  Great place

                                                                  Vanessa M.

                                                                  This was a great set up for multi family vacaction.

                                                                  I would call it a hacienda rather than a house.

                                                                  Very clean and well kept. Everything we needed, except for food, was there on the premises. The caretaker was friendly and helpful. The fire pit was extremely popular and the firewood supply was endless. Two comments: (1)The living area appears much larger than it actually is in the online photo. It is not very comfortable or conducive to large group gatherings; (2) There was no TV, which our group would have appreciated for weekend football games. And, oh yes, most of the doorways are built for people under 5'3" -- duck!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for the kind review. Sorry for not having cable; we are currently looking into getting it. At the moment, the TV in the living room does feature a Roku (for Netflix and Amazon Prime) and a DVD player to accommodate other forms of entertainment. The living room is meant to comfortably accommodate 9 adults sitting.

                                                                  The doorways are low as the house is an authentic adobe ranchos from the 1780s and has kept its original architecture since then.

                                                                  We hope to have you again.
