Host: I am an International Artist, Stanford Graduate, and Retired Professor, here to facilitate your awesome, Abiquiu experience. I love the big earth and sky of New Mexico and the "Land of Enchantment Abiquiu Retreat" is the perfect place to find it. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Why Dana chose Abiquiu
There is no other like it, with breathtaking views, a lot to explore on the property and endless excursions in the area. It is a quiet, peaceful and inspiring place if you want to work. No neighbors in sight so it feels remote.
What makes this House unique
Located in equal proximity to Santa Fe, Taos, Ojo Caliente, Los Alamos, Ghost Ranch and more. The property is located on an old Indian Village that inhabited this area along the El Rito Creek.

Lovely views, Nice for 1 to 3 people
This is a tough one as I did not not enjoy my stay here but I likely would not return. It is 8.5 miles from Abiquiu Center which was not obvious on the website. While the larger bedroom has an interesting art piece as entrance, there is little privacy in this room. There is no covering for this door and the section of the wall between that room and the living space does not connect all the way up to the ceiling. Secondly, the living area is a bit tight for four adults in terms of each getting comfortable seating. It could be best to remove the large TV cabinet altogether for the sake of additional seating. Oddly, if you care to watch the telly, when the cabinet is open, it can only be viewed by the 1 or 2 folks (we were 4 adults) who are able to sit directly in front of it on the couch because when the doors are out the tv screen is blocked from the sides. There are lovely floor to ceiling windows with fabulous views over the desert landscape stretching out to Pederal. These great windows come at a cost, however,to the beautiful local birds. It is estimated that in the US alone more than 365 million birds dies crashing into windows. Using decal products such as Whispering Windows helps tremendously to reduce the death of our flying inhabitants. They honestly don't detract from the view and are so well worth it.
Excellent location and ambience in this land of enchantment!
Peaceful, quiet, scenic getaway
Beautifully maintained, comfortable and incredible views and hiking from your back door. Hope I can return.
The southern mountain view from the patio is spectacular and sunsets to the west never failed to delight. The beds and pillows were especially comfortable. All the amenities were provided with high quality and comfort in mind. It was the perfect place for us to de-stress and relax. Thank you Dana!
Thank you for your business Kate. You are my first review on VRBO. Have a wonderful trip and safe travels back to the UK.
