|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
A private rural retreat located in the enchanted high desert forest of northern New Mexico, this beautiful abode is tucked away amongst old-growth junipers and piñon pines. If you like being in nature, but prefer not to rough it much, this place is for you. A sense of serenity is pervasive as you wind your way through the compound. You will notice the retreat is designed for you to deepen your connection with the land and allow the tensions from daily life to dissolve. The property itself is on 37 acres, with 2 hiking loops in the natural surroundings.
LOCATION: The town (village is more like it), consists of about 150 residents, a general store and a post office. The three miles of dirt roads to the retreat are passable year-round and give the feeling that you are 'out there'. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended in the snow and in the springtime mud. Although television is non-existent and cell service is sketchy, there is WiFi at the Main House, as well as a land line. If you'd like some off-site adventure, Taos is 40 minutes away, and Santa Fe is about an hour and a half. The Ski Valley is one hour door-to-door, and Ojo Caliente Spa and Mineral Springs are within a 25 minutes. You can visit ancient Indian cliff dwellings, hike in the mountains or on the mesa, and river-raft in the Rio Grande Gorge.
