River's Edge Guest House provides the best home away from home with the unique sounds of the Embudo River just 15 feet away.
A large deck overlooks the river with wonderful night-time lighting provided by Romantic Tiki lights. There is never and "off" season here as the sky is always blue, the stars are always bright and the guest house is always cozy with radiant floor heat and a large triangular shaped jacuzzi tub.
The tub is raised and just inside of fully opening French doors to bring the "outside in". This is an awesome place to just come and relax and occasionally get out to explore the finest that New Mexico has to offer in Restaurants, Skiing, Rafting and Fun.
No Smoking, Please.

I spent two weeks at the guest house and the property, as well as the town of Dixon, has hooked me for life. The guest house is nestled on a large lot amidst the hills of northern New Mexico with a rolling creek immediately off the back deck. The sound of the water and gorgeous scenery beyond are nourishing to the soul. This late October and early November revealed brilliant autumn colors in every direction, making the experience even more memorable. The guest house, while seemingly small and simple in the photos, lives large and is well laid out for comfortable dining, lounging and sleeping. Great for one or two people on retreat. The town of Dixon is rich in New Mexican history and is teeming with friendly people, art, a suprisingly well-stocked grocery and an outstanding local cafe. Just a little further away are more activities at the Rio Grande Gorge, Taos and Santa Fe. The hosts are very personable, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with, while being respectful of your privacy. I can highly recommend this property to anyone needing to get away from the big city to unwind, reconnect with nature or be close to the action without being right in the middle of it. This was a memorable getaway and I look forward to returning time and again.
My husband and I have stayed here several times in the past few years. We keep coming back because:
the cabin is comfortable; we have the best of two worlds -- a lovely stream over which the balcony is located, and high desert hills and mountains surrounding the property (perfect for hiking); lovely owners who are eager to share their knowledge with you; and easy access to both Taos and Santa Fe (Taos being the closer of the two.). The pictures accurately depict the cabin...as does the description. For dog lovers, the owners have three very friendly dogs who love to visit you and get petted. An abundance of flowers and plants are everywhere to be enjoyed. The owners, tho' friendly, do not intrude in any way. There's a cafe in town that has decent food and a ways up the road is a little resturaunt called 'Sugar Nymphs' which has excellent food...their desserts are to die for! We always hate to leave, tho' when we do we are always rested and relaxed. I most heartily recommend this for two people who want to have a romantic and nature-filled time of r&r.
We spent 3 nights here for our 1st anniversary, and it was absolutely perfect. The cottage offered a full-sized kitchen and outdoor BBQ grill, so it would have been possible to stay without ever having to leave the peaceful setting. The deck was only four or five feet from the river, so lounging there was a completely relaxing experience. Privacy was interupted only by the whistling birds in the surrounding trees. A hill on the opposite side of the river provided a natural privacy barrier from local traffic and neighbors. The house was nicely appointed with many modern conveniences (washer, dryer, Direct TV, telephone), but the jacuzzi opening to the deck to let the sound of the river in was my favorite. The bed was also next to French doors opening to the deck, so nature was never too far away. Taos was a short twenty some miles to the north and Santa Fe 39 miles to the south, so it was a terrific place to get away without being too isolated. My only suggestion to make your stay more comfortable would be pick up some bottled water on your way in. The house uses a reverse osmosis system to supply the drinking water, but being city folks, it was not to our taste. There were plenty of blankets, towels,and kitchen ware; the only thing not provided I can think of is a robe. My husband and I have stayed in bed and breakfasts from Arizona to North Carolina, and the only place more enchanting for us thus far was ... the front porch swing in NC, but there only because of the fireflies.
