"I stayed in this astoundingly beautiful home for two months. I cannot imagine that there is a more perfect place to experience the beauty of New Mexico's high desert. Abiquiu Lake, Cerro Pedernal and Ghost Ranch provide incredibly beautiful landscapes and this home puts you right in the midst of that beauty from every room in the house.


If you are like me, you will catch your breath every morning as you get your first view of your surroundings from the floor to ceiling windows. You can sit with a beverage on the portal in the afternoon and watch the light change on the red rocks. You can be enveloped by quiet broken only by the lapping of Abiquiu Lake on the shore below you. You can get lost in the vastness of the sky, day or night.


This would be enough if the living quarters were only mediocre. But they are exceptional. Comfortable beds with high quality linens. A well-equipped kitchen. Beautiful carved doors and bath tiles. Hot tub. A ultra-responsive owner who clearly wants your stay to be the best. If you get a chance to go to Abiquiu, stay in this home. You will not be sorry and I expect you will remember your stay there fondly for a very long time." – Sharon K., Fennville, MI
