Overview

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.

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!

Remote Beauty

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful isolated home with spectacular panoramic views from atop a mesa. The photos and description accurately depict the house, its views and amenities. One exception is that there is a soaking, but not jetted, tub in the master bath. The house itself is semi-circle in front to maximize views of Ghost Ranch, Abiqui Lake and the Pedernal Mountain. Spectacular sunrises were enjoyed from both inside and outside the home and the full moon rising over the lake was a special treat. Although we were there in winter, the front porch that wraps around the circular shape would be delightful in warmer weather. The home and kitchen were thoughtfully stocked with all that you need for comfort and convenience. All was very clean and well kept. Instructions for use of the house (including directions) were thorough. Description of local hikes and attractions were included in the binder. Having a fireplace with wood provided on site enhanced the cozy ambience of the house in the winter. The local Bodes store in Abiqui was about a 30 minute drive and had an amazing assortment of goods for a small store, but if you like to cook, food choices were better in the Santa Fe Wholefoods where we purchased groceries for our 5 night stay. Once you turn off the main paved road there is about 4 miles of unpaved gravel roads so having a vehicle with more clearance is suggested. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return in a heartbeat. You can tell that this is Larry and Laurie’s home and not just purely a rental. We’ve already recommended this house to a neighbor and friend. I won’t describe things to see and do in the area as the homeowners have covered this so well in the information they provide.

The Perfect Respite

  • 5 of 5
Vista de Lago is the perfect locale for a relaxing getaway from the stress and strain of everyday life. As mentioned by other reviewers, it is wise to stock up on groceries, on your way to Abiquiu, as once you arrive at this beautiful hideaway, you may not wish to venture far. The views in every direction are just indescribably breathtaking. The quiet is delightful, with only the occasional sound of a bird overheard breaking through the stillness. The air is clean and fresh, and the casita is the perfect design to maximize the enjoyment of this "utopia". Even the thunderstorms that we encountered during our 7 day stay, were a treat to behold from the vantage point of the high mesa, and, on the clear nights, the stars against the black velvet sky were simply incredible.
The owners provide all the information needed to successfully navigate the surrounding area, as well as the basic necessities. Larry and Laurie - Jim and and I thank you for helping to make our 40th wedding anniversary celebration such a beautiful one! We are already checking our calendars (and yours) to see when we will be able to return to Vista de Lago!

Best New Mexico vacation rental... the views are breath taking

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are frequent visitors to New Mexico and rented Casa de Logo for our last vacation. This home is very comfortable with its 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We were up before the sunrise and took day trips and made sure to be back for the beautiful sunsets. Everything you can think of is ready and waiting for your visit.

Absolutely Incredible!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home in an incredibly beautiful area! I cannot say enough good about our experience during our stay here, the home is beautiful and very comfortable and we never grew tired of the amazing views it provides. We thoroughly enjoyed the extraordinary sunrises, sunsets, mountain views and everything else the area had to offer. One week here just wasn't enough, leaving was the most difficult part of our vacation. I highly recommend this home!!! Simply amazing.
