SPECTACULAR 360 DEGREE VIEWS OF ABIQUIU LAKE AND GHOST RANCH

Abiquiu House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Full luxury in breathtaking natural beauty. Remote and private. So quiet you can hear your heart beat. At night, no city lights disturb your view of the star-studded sky.

From this 1,475 square foot Casita, you'll enjoy panoramic 360-degree views: Abiquiu Lake, miles of mesas, rolling hills, and the magnificent red cliffs surrounding the famous Ghost Ranch. To the south you'll see the 10,000-foot mountain known as El Pedernal, which Georgia O'Keefe made famous in her paintings, along with much of the near landscape.

This is a new Casita, built in 2008, and designed by a local architect in a southwestern yet modern style. It's fully furnished for comfort. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including a Bosch gas stove with heavy gauge grills for those who really love to cook.

Check out the Master bathroom: you can choose between a slate shower or a deep soaking tub to soothe your body after an invigorating hike in the nearby Jemez Mountains. Besides the 2 bedrooms with Queen beds, there is a queen bed sofa in the Great Room with spectacular views of the lake and Ghost ranch.

Why The Owner chose Abiquiu

My wife and I have been visiting Northern New Mexico for almost 30 years. The skies, the red rocks, the mesas, the food, the locals, the hiking, the skiing…. are all so inviting. Finally, we decided that it was time to buy a place, not only to use as a getaway for ourselves, but for friends and family alike. We also want to introduce others to Abiquiu and Northern NM, so we’ve decided to make this a vacation getaway for you as well. We know you’ll be enchanted by NM as we have been.

A gem of a place--if breathtaking views and all the amenities of home are your goals

  • 5 of 5
What can be added to the previous glowing reviews of this wonderful vacation place! After leaving the crowds and noise of the city, this was the perfect place to end our anniversary getaway. If you are looking for perfect solitude, sweeping vistas of mesas, distant mountain ranges, blue-green lakes, and nothing but the relaxing sounds of the breezes passing by, an occasional bird, and (during this time of year) the rumble of distant thunder in the afternoons, this is the place! We would have simply stayed here quite a bit longer but there were others coming after us of course...
The owners of Vista de Lago were very helpful in providing us with a list of places to visit in the area, but after arriving here, we simply decided to make this our home for 3 days and take full advantage of everything it had to offer.
There is a nice flat screen TV and Blu-Ray player, but why would one want to use any of these? Just look out the windows! The views are breathtaking, and each time of day, from dawn, through noon and evening time, presents an entirely different mood. There is really no reason to go anywhere else, if magnificent scenery, beautiful skies, ultra comfort and solitude is what you are seeking.
If side trips are a must, I would suggest hiking over at Chost Ranch (which you can see nestled in the pink and red cliffs due north from Vista), as well as a tour through their nice museums, and a walk around the labyrinth. The 2 hour hike to the top of the Chimney Rock trail is worth the view and the workout--plan for early morning or later afternoon if it is hot. And of course the Abiquiu Inn for lunch, dinner, or just a refreshing glass of rosemary lemonade!
Thanks to Larry and Laurie for sharing their beautiful site...we hope to return next year.

Awe inspiring!

  • 5 of 5
As a British family, that has now spent several long summers visiting America, we try always to stay in rental homes rather than in hotels. We were always a little unsure of what the frequently-used word 'awesome' meant, but now we know. This house, perched on a bluff, overlooking Lake Abiquiu, with panoramic views, truly inspires 'awe'! In the evenings we were treated to lightning shows on several sides of the mountains circling us; every night we gazed at the stars, it could not have been more blissful.

It is a cosy house, cleverly but perfectly designed in a circle, with very comfortable amenities. If its privacy you want, look no further, and although another reviewer suggested stocking up on food before you arrive, we travelled about most days, and found the small shop in Abiquiu on the way home had plenty to suffice. Even the mile or two of un-tarred road leading up to the house wasn't a problem for us.

The owners were incredibly helpful before we arrived, and we are so grateful for all the communication with great tips and hints. We had a marvellous horseriding trek at Ghost Ranch, and on our way back from the amazing water pools at Ojo Caliente, pulled off the
road to watch a spectacular thunder storm with the biggest hailstones we have ever seen. As the sun glints off the lake and the colourful rocks around it, the view from the house could tranfix us for hours in the evenings!

We stayed at this house as a little piece of luxury before heading to the Sangre de Christo mountains as volunteers at the Philmont Scout Camp, and as geologists we would have happily spent many more days enjoying the beautiful scenery and bountiful rocks around Abiquiu. We would love to be able to come back here again one day!

Owner's Response: I know it was a long way to come from Europe, but we are so happy that you found Vista de Lago to be everything you had hoped for. Please come visit us again, as you are always welcome back. All the best,

A very nice home in a very special area !

  • 5 of 5
My best friend and I recently spent about a month in New Mexico and we were lucky enough to get 5 nights in this home. We would have loved to stay longer but the calendar stays pretty full on this house and for very good reason. The combination of a great home, a very special location, and very friendly and accommodating owners made this one of our favorite vacation rentals ever ! We have stayed in many different VRBO homes and none of them have made the process as easy and enjoyable is this one. We received a great information packet that answers any questions you may have about the place and had very good directions etc,. The house has everything you need to feel like you're right at home. The location of this place is what impressed me the most. There is something special about the 'light' in this area. It's no wonder that so many artists are drawn to this part of New Mexico to paint. The house has an amazing view of the lake just below the mesa, and the distant views in every direction are just awesome ! The color on the cliffs to the north near Ghost Ranch seem to change with the rising and setting sun. Pedernal Mountain (made famous by Georgia O'keeffe) is just south of the house. If you visit during the monsoon season you'll see a few afternoon thunderstorms roll off the mountain and across the lake. A few of the high peaks of the Sangre De Cristo range are even visible on the eastern horizon. Night time brings another treat as the view of the stars and the Milky Way are the clearest that I have ever seen. Santa Fe is only an hour south. Taos and the Rio Grande Gorge just over an hour to the northeast. Many great historic sites like Chaco Canyon and Bandelier are a very easy day trip from this house. But I also recommend taking a couple days to just lay in the hammock under the portal and take in the scenery and the hummingbird show ! Thank you Larry and Laurie for allowing us to make some great memories at this place. I hope we get to come back again sometime and stay even longer !

Beautiful vistas beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at this gem of a place after traveling through Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The absolute beauty and solitude was very welcome. There was a nest of flycatchers on one of the outside wall sconces and we watched them fledge the day we left. The hummingbird feeders were a wonderful distraction and watching storms roll in for hours and see the sky and colors of the canyon walls change was a sight I won't soon forget. The stars you can see on a clear night will astound. It was everything we needed and wanted in a vacation home.

A Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5
This is a great get-a-way to relax and unwind. The views are spectacular and the property is very cozy. I would recommend buying a cooler and filling up with groceries in Espanola because once you get there you will not want to leave. The stars at night are phenomenal! The place is somewhat remote, so plan on some driving time to explore the area.

Gorgeous panoramic views!

  • 5 of 5
The views are amazing and the home is lovely and very comfortable. We spent a long weekend with friends who love to cook with us and we found the kitchen was very well equipped. The owners are very accommodating, responsive and provided detailed information on the area, attractions and the home. We had a wonderful and relaxing visit with our dear friends.
