My late husband, age 53 died unexpectedly in 2009. We built this log home to be our retirement home. Initially, we were going to build a small log home but this turned out to be 4500 square feet, 3200 sq. ft. in use. It is quite beautiful. I now own a business on the East Coast and in 2012 moved to New Mexico permanently. I have decided to rent this log home as a vacation rental and know all who rent it will be taken with the area and all it has to offer. And the view will amaze you. I believe it is one of the most beautiful views in New Mexico.
We built this home in this location because it is close to Santa Fe, New Mexico but gives an illusion of being secluded. The area is adjacent to a National Park and the views are spectacular.
We back up to a National Forest and Pecos, New Mexico is an amazing town with many celebrities living in the town. It even has a medical center along with quite a few good restaurants. It is a hikers paradise. And for those who love shopping, eating and art, Santa Fe is just down the road. Once you come down the mountain and spend 10 to 15 minutes driving out from Pecos to the main highway, you are 20 to 25 minutes from Santa Fe. So you have the best of both worlds, you have the feel of privacy and total relaxation and the nearness of a city for many events and great restaurants. Friends of mine have said that they love just being up at the log home reading and taking in the beautiful sunsets and beautiful star filled nights.
Hiking tours can be arranged. Very near Santa Fe, New Mexico which offers amazing restaurants, galleries, festivals, spas, nightlife and shopping. Also near art center and unique town of Madrid close to Santa Fe exit off I -25.
