"We have stayed at many VRBO's but this place sets itself apart. It may not be the easiest drive, but it is well worth the bumps and turns of the dusty, dirt road. We love rural northern NM, so were all set to like what we found, and what we found was an incredibly well stocked kitchen and home. We loved the little touches as well as the large strokes of the canvas. We felt as though we were sharing this home with someone who loved sharing it with us. All we could talk about was coming back in different seasons to experience Canoncito Creek in its full richness of the colorful hills and creeks, skies and rocky canyons. If you love rural New Mexico for its magical connection to its history, past and present, for its kind and strong, hardworking people, you may find yourself falling in love with this place. We are avid hikers and nature lovers, so this is a gold mine where a hike is available out every door into the national forest, and the chances of running into humans is remote. What you will see and hear and smell in these canyons is remarkable.
The home itself is pure fabulousness with Saltillo tiles, "rustic" hardwood floors, heavy wood beamed ceilings, and comfortable beds. Even the towels were luscious. There are 6-10 foot Windows overlooking the southeast to thick woodlands in front of a jutting mountain. There are three levels of large, sturdy decks which overlook similar views. This home was clearly designed for comfort, beauty, and peace. The architect fit a perfect celebration of NM into a rural retreat worthy of praise. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us. You made our anniversary memorable in every way."
