About Nora Dvosin & Jeffrey Karoff
We were renters ourselves for a few years in a row -- our friends Jonathan and Carolyn ran the vacation rental and we'd said back then, if you ever want to sell... Sure enough, when they were ready we were their first call, and we bought the property immediately.
Nora Dvosin & Jeffrey Karoff purchased this House in 1999
Why Nora Dvosin & Jeffrey Karoff chose Dixon
We think our house is situated in one of the best spots in Dixon. We are at the end of the road, with only wilderness beyond. So we have this vast, protected, BLM natural preserve as our side and backyards. You can see our neighbors down the road about 100 yards, but that's about it. Otherwise, the land is untouched.
What makes this House unique
We love going there ourselves - we are in Dixon 3-4 times a year. Somehow, we never tire of the intoxicating landscape, the air, the quiet, the extraordinary New Mexican skies, and the light. The banco under the ramada is one of the most magical spots. The ramada's pillars provide framed views of the landscape that remind us of Maxfield Parrish's idyllic worlds.

I’ve stayed at this property 3-4x in the past. If you’re looking for one of the most peaceful places on earth with breathtaking views and miles of hiking right out the back foot, this is the place. It has everything you need. The outdoor ramada is the perfect place to watch the birds with your morning coffee or see the sunset with a margarita. Loved my recent visit!
We love this house and its surroundings. This was our second time to stay here, and I was thrilled to find it just as quiet and calming as it was some years ago.
The views from this location are unforgettable. By staying in the Adobe Home at the Edge of Wilderness you can experience dark skies, hummingbirds, sounds of coyotes in the night, hiking outside the property, hearing peace and quiet and watching the sun rise behind the hills. The house was comfortable with all the amenities necessary for a short or long stay and the outside seating arrangements perfect for facilitating your relaxation. We will be back.
Love, love love
This our 3rd time at this wonderful property, we love the seclusion, comfort and quiet of this beautiful house.
And we hope to have you back a fourth, fifth, sixth...
Perfect for hiking right out any door
What a lovely property! Quaint interior that is very comfortable. Loved the decor as it really made the adobe feel quite authentic. Used the swamp cooler as we stayed in July and it got quite hot during the daytime. It worked well on the main level, but was difficult to cool the loft area where the kids slept, even with fans pushing air upstairs. Did not have any communication with the caretaker as we didn't have any need. Our favorite feature of this home is the outdoor living space and access to wonderful hiking right out the doors. Truly, walk out any door and embark on a hike down the dried up riverbed or a climb up several hills. We spent many hours outside with a book and a cup of coffee, though did get distracted watching the hummingbirds, lizards, and rabbits. The community of Dixon is quite welcoming. Enjoyed food at Zuly's and the Dixon Co-op. We feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay here, and hope to return again someday!
Desert Hideaway Gem
This home is a gem. We are all privileged to be invited to stay here. The old, authentic adobe structure is just the beginning of the magic that you can experience approaching the inside. Then, inside, giant vigas hold the sky up, and a gorgeous cement floor holds the earth down. A wood burning stove between the open kitchen and living space ties them together and invites warmth on cold days. It's cozy, open, authentic. And, rests at the edge of a fertile and generous desert, sometimes laced with blooming wild flowers and cacti, others, solitary river rocks, but always invites silence and contemplation. If you stop and listen well, you will leave filled with a richness and wholeness that perhaps you never imagined. Thank you Nora and Jeff.
