ABIQUIU ON THE MESA/ DESIGNER ADOBE DELUXE VACATION HOME.

Abiquiu House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Den, Sleeps 6

Perfectly designed by a local architect, south of Abiquiu this large, airy pueblo style home is filled with desert light, and beautiful vistas from its many windows. Using southwestern elements and handcrafted furnishings the high ceilinged living room has a kiva fireplace, cozy down filled white sofas in an open floor plan with a dining area that seats 10. The gourmet kitchen boasts a Viking Range, Asko DW, concrete counters, and a complete pantry. A few steps up from the living room by mesquite stairs is a quiet den complete with TV and a day bed that sleeps 2.

Two ample bedrooms (king and queen beds) have tiled ensuite baths. A large eastern portale facing the mountains is complete with outdoor fireplace. The house sits snugly on 30 + acres and borders the State Land with trails down to the Chama River.

There is a separate bathhouse with sauna and serene resting room. Wonderfully landscaped with desert flowers, the home is a peaceful and beautiful retreat.

Indian ruins are within walking distance. Do not forget to hike along the ancient arroyo to the Chama River.

Wildlife can be seen from the huge windows, which lend this home passive solar heat. Built on several levels this architectural home has beautiful fenestration which encompasses views from every angle.

Close by are the old Abiquiu pueblo, the non-excavated ruins of Poshuouinge, plus San Juan, Santa Clara and San Ildelfonso Pueblos.

Not to be missed are Ghost Ranch where Georgia O'Keeffe had her studio, Christ in the Desert Monastery, Abiquiu Lake, the Piedra Lumbre basin.

Colorful mesas give way to high mountains with Alpine meadows.

From late March through November the Georgia O'Keeffe house in Abiquiu is open for guided tours. Santa Fe and Taos are nearby for day trips. So are Chaco Canyon, Chama, Pagosa Springs, CO, Los Alamos and the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs.

You might want to come out when the cottonwood trees are yellow and orange during the annual Abiquiu Studio Tour (Columbus Day weekend) in October, or one week later for the El Rito Studio Tour.

All seasons in Northern New Mexico are sensational.

Additional Information: We have a free internet phone which is connected to wifi. Flat screen tv and dvd player with plenty of good films and books. All pets are welcome in our home. We do charge $ 10/day for for extra cleaning.

We bought our piece of paradise from our old friend and neighbor in 1998 and she convinced us to build a house with a local architect and builder. 'a casita' The process was wonderful if at times perplexing because the local artisans never quite understood what we were talking about! We ended up with a wonderfully eclectic and delightful mix of styles of the southwest. A house filled with light and spirit!

This property borders thousands of acres of state land and though it is rural and wonderful it is not remote. Our wonderful local architect Mike carefully picked out the best views from the window and angled the house perfectly to the sun. We had so much fun building it, picking the tiles and fixtures and inviting the local craftsmen to make our furniture and doors and plaster the walls and make our home unique, filled with light and yet cozy.

Rest and moonsoon adventures

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for three days in the house this summer and it is a wonderful resting and contemplation place. As it is built for the local climate, with sensible orientation, using appropriate shading and thermal mass, we particularly appreciated that air conditioning was not required, whilst the house kept cool. Our stay was made a bit more eventful by massive summer monsoon thunderstorms which kicked the arroyos in action. However lovely neighbours helped solve this unexpected issue. A true taste of northern New Mexico.

Owner's Response: It was a wild summer…hail stones for 20 minutes in july! and then of course rainbows all over the skies almost daily. The mesa even turned green this summer which is a rare treat for all the desert people. We certainly welcomed the rain to help the drought ridden forests and hope that this winter brings us lots of snow. The house is wonderful in the winter with the piñon fires going in the kiva and the sometime snow blanketing the tender grass. Though my favorite season is the fall when the cottonwoods on the Chama go golden. Our poured pumice 14 inch walls do help to keep the warmth inside in the winter or to hold the coolness of the night in the summer. We have tried our best to be kind to our mesa---keeping to the trails, using little water, recycling, etc etc. and we certainly love to hear that our guests feel that way too. It is a wondrous place and ,yes, with very friendly and helpful neighbors.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd time at the Mesa. I came prepared to shoot the milky way , unfortunately the storms and the full moon wouldn't let me. However, I got the treat of a lifetime to photograph the thunderstorms and the beautiful sunsets after the storms had dissipated.
I would highly recommend coming to Lilyan's beautiful house to unwind from the daily grind and enjoy the very best of northern New Mexico, trust me, you will not be disappointed. I'm already planning a future trip.

Owner's Response: I also love the summer monsoon season with the storms coming suddenly over the black mesa and usually leaving a rainbow or two after it has passed. But then again, I also love the winter with the crystals of snow on the grass and the fall with the golden cottonwoods along the river and a clear blue sky. Spring is lovely too when it brings us lots of wind and tumbling tumble weeds.
Yes, our home on the mesa is a very beautiful quiet peaceful spot with its big skies filled with stars and once in awhile a full moon rising over the Sangre des Christo mountains. And if one is really lucky a sunset in all the seasons that will turn the mountains the color of blood for which they are named. I hope he comes back next time and is rewarded by being able to photograph the milky way, none the less his photographs of this summers visit were spectacular!

We LOVE this place!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our second trip to this gorgeous property. The house is beautiful and the 360 degree views are spectacular. We were fortunate to experience storms roll in and out on a daily basis and the the color of the sky and landscape fluctuated hourly. We just poured some wine and kicked back and relaxed on the large open porch. The house has all the amenities you would need to cook nice meals and just settle in for a while. We have always gone by ourselves but we already planning a group trip because the flow of the house is perfect for several occupants to have their own private space. We can't say enough nice things about this spot and the owners. They have always been so helpful and easy to get in touch with. Thank you for sharing this incredible spot!

Owner's Response: Our mesa is an amazing place when it storms. This much needed rain peppered the mesa with little white flowers like snow in the summer and created works of art in the huge open sky. We have the perfect viewing place from our large, covered portale on the east side of the house. We see the black mesa stretching untouched before us and the Sangre des Cristo mountains, often covered in snow, behind the mesa. We sit on our porch in all seasons watching sunrises and moonrises and eating our meals on the wooden bench and table that our neighbor David made for us. We too like to be there alone---we have nicknamed the house "Rancho Romantico" ---but guests do fit nicely into the guest room which is well separated from the master bedroom, both having ensuite baths. Our local architect perfectly placed all our windows to maximize the views--and our house sits comfortably on the land far enough from our neighbors for peace and quiet. It is indeed a romantic and breathtaking spot on the mesa, especially in stormy weather.

One year later and still thinking about it

  • 5 of 5
One year on, a few other trips since, and I'm still thinking about this one. I don't usually write reviews but I decided this one was worth it.

Who we are: A couple, no kids, Mid 30's, outdoorsy, foodies, artsy.
We visited the end of March. It was below freezing at night around 60 in the sun. Stayed 5 nights.

Kitchen: Well stocked with good quality cooking utensils, plus lots of staples - even Chimayo Chile powder - green and red... can't get better than that!

The Space: Warm and cozy. The sun warmed the house nicely during the day. The radiant heating and fire place kept it cozy in the evenings. The house is too big for 2 people, but as urban apartment dwellers, we didn't mind the splurge. Everything was clean and tastefully decorated. It's a nice piece of architecture. I enjoyed just standing in it.

I don't recall the quality of the bed - I think that must mean it was good. The master bathroom has a tub beside a picture window looking out across the mesa - that's worth it.

Location: Off the beaten path, at the end of a dead end road. We had several nice evening walks exploring the river and coulee's around the house. Total silence outside, especially at night.

Activities: We did some day hikes, explored the ruins at Bandelier and the Santa Clara Pueblo, Cooking class at Santa Fe School of Cooking, a couple of museums, and Ojo Caliente hot springs. Los Alamos was underwhelming. Taos was nice. Loved the town of Santa Fe. The Rio Grande - Awesome.

Only regret was not spending enough time at the house relaxing... city folk eh!

Owner's Response: I sometimes dream of our bed on the mesa--waking up on a snowy morning with the sun glistening on the snow covered grass or the sun poking itself up over the mountains or the incredible moonrise huge over the Sangre des Cristos. The bed is okay for reading(and certainly for sleeping) that's for sure but better yet my favorite reading spots are the white feather filled couches in the living room and the den. Our architect would be happy to hear his work called 'nice'-- though we tell him he made us a light filled wonder. All of his precise fenestration frames every view perfectly. We think its a magical house and we have nicknamed it 'Rancho Romantico'. No wonder he couldn't get it out of his mind.

Owner's Response: We do try to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable and we enjoy sharing our carefully thought out home with them. We have planned this house to let the beauty of the mesa into all the rooms with its careful fenestration and sky lit ceilings. And yes we think that our mesa (and our home) is really stunning in all seasons: the snow and clear light of winter, the blooms of spring, the rainbows in the summer and the golden cotton wood trees on the Chama in the fall.
