About Nora Dvosin & Jeffrey Karoff

We were renters ourselves for a few years in a row -- our friends Jonathan and Carolyn ran the vacation rental and we'd said back then, if you ever want to sell... Sure enough, when they were ready we were their first call, and we bought the property immediately.

Nora Dvosin & Jeffrey Karoff purchased this house in 1999

Why Nora Dvosin & Jeffrey Karoff chose Dixon

This might be the most ideal property in Dixon. We are at the end of the road, with only wilderness beyond us. So we have this vast, protected, BLM natural preserve as our side and backyards. You can see our neighbors down the road about 100 yards, but that's about it. Otherwise, it's untouched.

What makes this house unique

We love going there ourselves - we are in Dixon 3-4 times a year. Somehow, we never tire of the intoxicating landscape, the air, the quiet, the extraordinary New Mexican skies, and the light. The hammock under the ramada is one of the most magical spots. The ramada's pillars provide framed views of the landscape that remind us of Maxfield Parrish's idyllic worlds.

AWESOME Seclusion

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed at this Adobe twice. We always pine to go back because of it's originality and the fact that it is so private and quiet. The interior is perfect for those who want to relax and get away from technology.

The patio outside the bedroom is perfect for morning coffee or reading poetry while enjoying and evening glass of wine from the local winery.

The patio area is perfect for cooking out and chilling out.

This place in not for everybody. You have to "get" the vibe this adobe puts out to really appreciate the location.
Visited in Oct 1996 and I think April of 1999

We stayed for a week and wished it had been at least two. Yes, we appreciated the easy access to places like Abiquiu and Taos, as well as the nearby wineries, but the most memorable aspects of the house are its calm, isolated feel and the access right outside the door to hours of exploring up the arroyos and along the ridges. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We're already dreaming of a return visit.

Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5
We're compelled to express our immense enthusiasm for this treasure of a home in
Dixon. It is a pure delight. The quiet, the sweetness, the beauty and simple elegance are exquisite. Every potted plant is a work of art to feast our eyes on. The protected land that surrounds it is so dream-like. We took endless walks, passing an entire range of hills, only to meet yet another pristine range ahead. If you're looking to be inspired and to disconnect from the craziness of life…look no further.

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a short stay at this property, and had a blast. I would describe the house as a bit quirky (in a good way) and very different from your typical rental property. Nice (and comfy) furniture and art all over the place, but solid enough to have little kids around. We felt very much at home. The fireplace makes it very cozy when its cold outside and messing with real fires always makes me a happy man :-).
Kitchen is equipped nicely, and the place was very clean. We were with 2 adults and 3 kids, and that worked out fine. In our case the very steep stairs to the "tower bedroom" acted as a magnet to our 1-yr old, so that can be a bit tricky. I'd say the whole place shows the owners have excellent taste (I realize that's very subjective, it works for us anyway, and we are from the Netherlands for what its worth).
The patio's around the house all look magnificent and the direct access to NM solitude and wilderness is spectacular for a bit older kids (and myself). For the 1-yr old this was all a bit too rough, and our 4-yr old girl also was challenged climbing the surrounding hills, but our 6-yr old son and myself made some very nice and spectacular mini hikes over the ridges starting behind the house. He definitely did not want to leave.
Skiing in Taos and visiting Santa Fe is each about over an hour's drive.
Furthermore I can confirm all earlier reviews are accurate and that the owner and caretaker are very friendly and easy to work with.

We keep coming back to Northern NM. There's no place like it in the States. If you're planning a trip to the area, take time to stay and be prepared to chill. The adobe met all our expectations for peace, solitude and comfort. The owners were a pleasure as well as their local POC. Kitchen, pantry, bathroom and utility room are well stocked and everything works as it should. You'll enjoy three outdoor living spaces and all are very private. The dark skies are a treat, especially with a nice telescope.....courtesy of the owner. I've been visiting this area since the late 60's and highly recommend Dixon and the Adobe a thte end of the road. Cheers......
