I was introduced to Chama, NM when I was working on the Navajo Reservation from 2002-2007. A boss of mine bought a house there and after I visited once, I fell in love with the area as it was a stark contract to the painted desert, but both provided a variety of outdoor activities in different environments. I bought the home in 2003 and began fixing it up in 2005, and did not finish until 2008, after I returned to Massachusetts, where I currently live. I am also a graduate of Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT.
This is one of the oldest homes remaining in Chama. It is a gambrel style victorian and was built in 1882. Records indicate that the builder of the home was a conductor of the D&RG railroad. There is more history related to this man and his family located in the home. The house has been completely remodeled, but strong effort was made to keep the details and charm accurate to the era. If you look closely during your stay, you will be able to spot some of the original features of the home.
The home is the last home on Terrace Ave/Main St in Chama, with views of the Cumbres Pass from all north windows and the decks. You can see the train pass by in the morning, as the tracks are directly across the street, and the depot, dining and shopping are all literally a 2 mintue walk from the home. There is plenty of parking behind the garage on Maple St. or along the side of the property on 1st St...enough to easily accomodate 30' trailers/motorhomes. It is easy accessible in the Winter, as all town roads are plowed by the state.
