The Casita del Lago

"We've stayed in many vacation rentals over the year, all over the world. And you know what? The absolute best one we've ever booked was here in a small village in northern New Mexico. If I had to summarize, I would say that the home, the views, the location and the hosts make this an award-worthy vacation rental. The home is beautiful and furnished so well, with everything you need. The location on Abiquiu Lake, tucked between the lake, red rocks, Ghost Ranch and Pedernal, is a treasure. You won't get this view and privacy in the village." – Sally S., US

"The owners have thought of everything their guests might need. Watching the sunset in the hot tub was wonderful. It’s amazingly quiet and the night sky was gorgeous." – Chrissy D. Dittweiler, Germany

"This vacation rental is magical. Wow.  We were not prepared for the stunning views of the lake and mountains.  We also were thrilled with the quality of everything in the home. The owners have spared nothing - everything you need (except the food you want to cook) is here. The home is on the lake so you can hike down to the shore to fish and swim. We brought a kayak and spent a lot of time on the lake. This was a dream vacation." – Kaitlyn M., Chicago, IL

"We used this casita as a base to travel various places, and it was lovely to return home and relax in the spa – a must after the sun is truly down as the Milky Way is very prominent and unmissable. We appreciated the quick response time whenever we got in contact [with the owners]. We would love to live there." – Mark H., Llanharan, UK

Abiquiú Lake Mesa

"Deserves 10 stars! This is a one-of-a-kind experience. Fabulous home, fantastic remote location - absolutely stunning and perfect. Incredible hosts, too. There are lots of options of places to stay in the area but this is THE place to book. It’s too beautiful to even describe in words, and the home is pure luxury and high custom quality."

– Evandro M., Dallas, TX

"A slice of Heaven on earth! The home is beautiful inside and out, impeccably kept, and thoughtfully furnished. Did I mention the views? A stunning panorama of Abiquiu Lake and surrounding canyon and mesas is nothing short of breathtaking. Desert splendor at its finest. Along with the view I was pleasantly surprised – and delighted – by the utter silence that prevails. That really enhances the overall experience." Kip K., Dallas, TX

"Views, views, views. And, the home is comfortable and spacious. I could sit on the deck forever.... Hosts are incredibly responsive and have thought of everything." – Kaitlyn M., Chicago, IL

"We had a wonderful stay here and will be coming back again. The house has all the amenities and the views from the bedroom and veranda are spectacular. The owners were available and attentive. Their instructions and information was very helpful, hospitable and gracious. The quiet and views were so relaxing." – Kamala D., Pleasant Hill, CA

"Beautiful. This home and location are the best we've ever stayed at, anywhere, in all our travels. Also, there is lots to do in the area and the owners provide information to help you figure out what you want to do. Definitely a five star experience." – Mandy J., US

Abiquiú Lake Vacations

"My wife and I have stayed at many vacation rental properties before, and Carolyn is the most engaged, helpful, and encouraging owner that I've ever worked with." – John H., US

"…In one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Silence was deafening and sunsets were breathtaking. The stars at night were so bright it didn’t look real. The home was impeccably clean and every detail accommodated the visitor. We will be back!"– Kathy I., Nederland, TX

"Absolutely loved my stay in Abiquiu! Bucket list dream come true!" – Erin C., US

"…It was the perfect home base for us to explore northern New Mexico. The owners seem like lovely people, and were very helpful." –  Michelle C., New York

"It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken. It is a beautiful home in one of the most splendid locations in the country – New Mexico. Absolutely wonderful. The owners are most gracious and the casita is marvelous. We plan to return soon." – Bill P., MI

"What you WILL find…

  • Breathtaking view

  • Solitude

  • Silence

  • The best of everything a desert environment can provide

We found it to be an ideal opportunity to get away from our normal lives for a few days, enjoying desert splendor and utter solitude with each other." – Kip K.,
