EXTRAORDINARY LAKEFRONT LUXURY CASITA ON ABIQUIU LK. GHOSTRANCH VIEWS!

Abiquiu House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bdrm + Convertible bed(s), 2 Bth, (Sleeps 6-7)

Step into a Georgia O'Keeffe painting right from your doorstep! The Casita del Lago is a Modern Adobe Style Vacation Home that is like no other in design and amenities. Imported granite countertops, custom handmade Spanish Pueblo arched doors, imported Mexican furniture, resort quality bedding and linens, authentic southwest lit nichos, handmade Kiva Lighting sconces, plastered interior walls, radiant floor heat, top rated appliances, indigenous rock woodburning fireplace, and 4 furnished outdoor living spaces!! The east and west portales are attached with heated floors and one-of-a-kind views. The southern portal (porch) just off the kitchen offers warm, sunlit days in even the coolest high desert New Mexico temps. And the hot tub will be an experience unique to each guest!

Casita del Lago (Little House on the Lake) is a secluded lakefront vacation home with lakefront access sitting on a river embankment right where the Chama River meets the 12 mile long Abiquiu Lake. This stunning thick-walled adobe style casita sits on 23 acres of natural surroundings and is crafted to true New Mexican style. It is well positioned on a gradually sloping hillside for privacy and it's close proximity to the sky blue water and 250 million year old layered Red Rock cliffs provide for spectacular one-of-a-kind views and pictures---right from your home.

Although you can stay inside the 1158 sq. ft. glass walled paradise and never plug-in any entertainment device, this deluxe casita is designed to include them. A large LCD HD TV is positioned above the wood burning rock fireplace and speakers for MP3 and Ipod players are included. If you want to move your entertainment outdoors to the heated floor portales where there are as many outdoor living spaces as indoor living spaces, then hook up to the fastest wireless internet in the area or position yourself to watch the flatscreen TV, or do what I do, take an afternoon siesta.

The 6 person hot tub is nestled among huge rock boulders just off the western portal and it reserves it own spectacular views for itself, especially at night when the billions and billions of stars come out. For the more adventuresome, a short hike to the 'Stonehenge firepit' at sunset for a spectacular outdoor viewing and nighttime fire atop the arroyo is a perfect setting for your favorite ghost story--or fairy tale story for the little ones.

Extra care was taken to craft your casita to be more than sleeping quarters with a kitchen.

It is a work of art in itself, erected without one tree being uprooted. And while the window space was maximized--Casita del Lago remains very energy efficient and green. Often, indigenous materials were utilized by local craftsmen. For you who have not visited New Mexico before, you will immediately notice the absence of noise, air, and light pollutants. We absolutely love it here and we hope you will, too. You can check in with us for more information about the area and its rich history.

For those of you familiar with the area, Casita del Lago is spectacularly unique. The drive down towards the water with the incredible Sedona-like views is worth the trip in itself! This is the area's most private and secluded resort setting; you will be amazed at the views that surround you and you will want to wake up early just to witness the break of dawn. Then settle in for an afternoon siesta on one of the outdoor daybeds; or curl up to a book; go down to the water; start a gourmet meal; sightsee (if you must); horseback ride; photograph; hike the arroyos on your property; draw, paint, write, dream, and much, much, more.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Most grateful that this place, this magical place, whose us. This place -under the meteors, the white fluffy clouds, among the red orange purple cliffs and equally brilliant sunset - we begin our new life together.

We fell in love with Abiquiu Lake and the surrounding area during a trip here several years ago. We balance raising our family, managing our careers and trying to spend as much time in Abiquiu as we can. We are pretty much regular folk who fell in love with Abiquiu and wanted to create something very special. We love it here as do our 3 teenage kids, riding horses on the property with Hollywood stuntman Fred. Our goal is to spend as much time here as time allows. When we can't be here, we rent out our home so others can enjoy the experience.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Quite simply, this place found us and the timing could not have been better. There are only four Lakefront parcels in the area, and only one remains available for sale (and that is the property we own adjacent to Casita del Lago.) When you visit here, and you view many of the scapes Georgia O'Keeffe painted in their original context, you will understand why she could never leave.

Paradise! Signature Casita on the shores of Abiquiu Lake - it is a house and property like no other and the only Lakefront vacation rental with lake access to Abiquiu Lake. Casita del Lago is built in traditional adobe style with 14' thick walls. The New Mexican charm is enhanced by the fully arched architectural doorways and the pair of built in lighted nichos opposite the woodburning fireplace. But it incorporates todays most modern conveniences. It is very private but also very conspicuous to boaters as it sits high on the hill overlooking the river. You can be as private as you would like to be, because you have 23 acres to roam. Bring your camera to photograph the vistas, relax in the two outdoor daybeds, take in the stars at the incredibly luxurious hot tub, light a fire indoors, or on the western portale, or venture out to the western outdoor pit. Admire the sunrise, or heat up the Eastern Portale and enjoy it from the bench. Walk down to the water for solitude or to drop a line in. Or just curl up on the 5' circular oversized chaise on the south portal and warm up to the afternoon sun. And those are just a few of the daily options you have at Casita del Lago.

Beautiful Property !

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the Casita del Lago in late June, 2014. The Casita del Lago has awesome views of Lake Abiquiu from the oversized window in the living area. The hot tub has amazing views of the night sky, and there is enough acreage to explore nature. We had a great time rafting on a nearby river, horseback riding and hiking. It was so nice to come back to the Casita del Lago for a relaxing end to the day. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

A great way to experience New Mexico - Will come again

  • 5 of 5
The experience lived up to and exceeded the promises of the web site. I planned this trip with my cousins (5 of us in all). My wife and I wanted them to experience and appreciate the wild beauty of New Mexico. The Casita delivered it. It was the highlight of the trip. The great room allowed us to visit together while admiring the scenery through the large windows. We sat on the patio and watched the sun set. The hot tub was hit too. The private nature of the Casita was welcomed as well.

Geat house, great location and great owner

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great week at this house. The kids, ages 4 and 7, had a great time exploring the property and lake. The hot tub was a big hit and the house is close to lots of activities. If all of that is not enough, venture into Santa Fe as we did and enjoy the character of the plaza. The house is well maintained and everything you need has been thought of.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Except for the 4 mile gravel road to reach the casita our stay was remarkable. Everything was as advertised and the scenery from the portales was incredible. Colors changing all day long with the moving of the sun across the sky. Great location for getting out and explorinh the area or for just relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet. This casita is certainly a place I would consider renting again if I were in the Abiquiu area. Thanks Tom for sharing your place with us. Our stay will long be remembered.
