Our Story

Greetings from Carolyn and Tom

Hello, and welcome to our vacation homes in paradise! We are Carolyn and Tom Calfee, owners of Abiquiú Lake Vacations and empty nest parents to three awesome young adults.

 

We love helping guests discover Abiquiú while staying at one of vacation properties. Sharing the beauty and magic of our home, Abiquiú, the Land of Enchantment, allows others to experience this incredible location. If you haven’t seen the sun rise or set over Abiquiú Lake and the red rocks, or if you haven’t experienced an absence of noise and light pollution, then well, you’ve missed the best part of Abiquiú.

 

We have met people from all over the world who have discovered our village and its lake. In fact, we are frequently surprised by how many people know about Abiquiú – from a couple in Australia to a guest from Spain who chose our home so he could swim (train) in Abiquiú Lake every morning. Our guests – who quickly become part of our Discover Abiquiú family – are the best part of this experience. We pride ourselves in setting an example as honest, ethical hosts who want every guest to have a perfect experience. Because of this, we have a high rate of return guests.  

The Casita del Lago was our first rental property. We built the home to take full advantage of the views. We have since purchased and remodeled Abiquiú Lake Mesa – perched above the lake it offers a different perspective but with still incredible views. Finally, we have launched The Studios of Abiquiú Lake. The two guest rooms will be perfect for expansion of the Mesa home or for travelers who want to spend the bulk of their time outside or at Ghost Ranch instead of inside. But of course, the view is still spectacular.

 

Sharing our properties with guests from around the world is the reason we do what we do. It's about the new friends we meet, the stories they share or that magical moment they captured in a stunning photo. It's hearing that they love this beautiful place as much as we do. And, it's knowing many guests don't want to leave at the end of their stay.

 

Reach out to us at any time! We also invite you to read our blog to help you Discover Abiquiú!

 

Safe travels,

Carolyn & Tom
