Is Abiquiú, New Mexico on your bucket list? If not, we think it should be.
While Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos and Los Alamos attract over 6 million visitors each year, it is the village of Abiquiú that we believe is the hidden gem – and no visit to New Mexico is complete without spending time in Abiquiú: The Land of Enchantment, the Home of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Dinosaurs, Native Americans, Spanish explorers, and castle wrestlers all called this land home. The village of Abiquiú is thought to be the beginning of The Old Spanish Trail which linked Santa Fe and Los Angeles. Georgia O’Keeffe made Abiquiú famous and today you can still see the vistas represented in her paintings. It’s no surprise, but Hollywood found Abiquiú and many films have been produced here, including Magnificent Seven; the 4th Indiana Jones movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; Cowboys and Aliens; City Slickers; Wyatt Earp; The Last Outlaw and many others.
There are many places you will want to explore:
Abiquiú Lake and the Chama River offer rafting, fishing, boating, swimming, kayaking
Beautiful hiking at Ghost Ranch, Pedernal, Plaza Blanca, Carson National Forest
Art galleries and tours – and everything Georgia O’Keeffe. The new Georgia O'Keeffe Welcome Center, which opened mid-2018, is a beautiful building complete with a gift shop, tours, and a movie of her life.
Spiritual connections at Christ Monastery in the Desert and Chimayo
Native American culture, pueblos, ruins, festivals and pottery
With so much to do, see and discover, we think the most important part of your trip is where you stay – your home base as you explore. There are options – the local inn, one of many vacation homes, rooms in owner’s homes or attached to their homes, and even teepees.
Not all vacation homes are created equally, and not all property managers have you, the guest, as their main priority. So we invite you to stay at #AbiquiuLakeVacations – where you will always find a private and beautiful home on or above Abiquiú Lake. It will always be clean and well stocked with spices, seasonings, luxurious linens, charcoal, fire wood, laundry supplies and more. The home will be remote and located on acres of land. You will have air conditioning, washer and dryers, authentic furniture and art, outdoor fire pits, indoor fireplaces, outdoor hot tubs.
In short, you will be renting an entire luxury private home, backed with personal and caring service to make sure you have a wonderful and memorable experience. If you have a concern, we are close by to help. If you need help planning your day, we have the local knowledge to share with you.
