About the property

House with master bedroom and screened-in sleeping porch (Sleeps 2 - 3)

This property is great for a couple's getaway, for artists and writers, or just anyone who needs privacy and natural beauty without interference of neighbors or other homes. It is ideal for one couple, but can also accommodate a third person in some situations. No pets, no smoking, and not appropriate for children.

As you turn off a two lane highway you descend on a private dirt road to a hidden riverfront drive with lovely rock walls, green grass, and fruit trees. Then you reach the Mission style adobe wall which opens onto a pueblo-style home on a tree filled oasis facing the river. The only people you need see are the occasional rafters floating by in summer as you barbecue outside.

You will have one of the most beautiful views imaginable while staying in this home! The cozy living room has a rock fireplace and a large window looking at the Rio Grande River (just 15 feet away). Mornings, as you have your coffee on the back portal facing the river, you may see our resident blue heron or our beloved bald eagle family overhead as well as the ever-present ducks floating downriver.

If you need more stimulation, then get in your car and do the scenic drive to Taos or Santa Fe where you have shopping, museums, skiing and many other activities. Also, there is a thriving art community in Dixon with a country, co-op grocery store, library, community center, and two award winning vineyards. Check out CHIRIPADA and VIVAC for wine tasting, and you can't miss eating at Zuli's restaurant in Dixon!

The property is also available to host your outdoor wedding or other events such as family reunions (does not include house). For more information call (617) 947-9016
