Beautiful modern mountain cabin with all high end amenities INSIDE national forest.
Summer and Winter wonderland!
The home is all on one level - no stairs of any kind (except the exterior stairs down to the hutub) King bed in the master and two queen beds in the guest rooms - all plush pillow top beds.
Awesome master bath with giant cast iron tub, perfect for two if you don't feel like sitting in the hot tub :-)
Extreme privacy - this is one of the only properties like this in the Santa Fe area - a true mountain paradise get away, yet so close to town.
Out door enthusiasts will love it here, bring your mountain bikes in the summer and your cross country ski's in the winter, ski right out the front door!
The home has ample deck and patio space overlooking the creek and hot tub, perfect for out door entertaining.
Cool temps in the summer when downtown is hot! Encantado resort is right down the road for world class dining and spa services.
There is a 2 mile dirt road to the property and the last 1/2 mile is a little bumpy and it can get muddy or snowy depending on the weather...
Please note that an SUV or all wheel drive vehicle may be preferable in case of inclement weather, especially winter months when a 4x4 is needed.
Please read the reviews and check out the video tour!

My name is Brian and I have lived in this paradise for over 17 years and now its time to share.
Brian Bodei purchased this cabin in 1995
This is the only location thats this close to Santa Fe, inside the national forest, on a stream that affords total privacy and high quality of living. I feel so blessed to have been able to live up here all these years. I can never get over how beautiful Pacheco Canyon is!
This home was designed by and award winning designer - no boring architecture here. The home was planned to feel like the outdoors and indoors were one, and I truly think we succeeded. Sitting by the creek, watching the humming birds, having margaritas on the deck - or in the hot tub. Mountain biking and skiing right out the front door - endless miles of hiking and exploring, watching the birds - it never gets old! The only problem with staying up here is that you will not want to leave....Santa whaa?
We had a wonderful stay here. The house is completely outfitted with anything you would need -- a kitchen with every pot & pan, a bathroom with fluffy robes, and plenty of amenities that you won't find at other VRBO's. It's clear that the owner puts a lot of effort & time into making his house a home. The road leading into the cabin is a bit dicey (but we arrived when snow was on the ground). But after a few days, we began to think of the bumpy ride as fun! It's all part of the experience. We loved it & will definitely be returning!
Thank you Brian!
Magical is a term that is oft-overused, but in the case of This "Story Book" Cabin, it is truly appropriate! Brian is Amazing & has so many wonderful appointments & extra touches!! This is truly an incredible place that exudes coziness and warmth. Superb views, peace & quiet and yet still convenient to Santa Fe just 12 miles to The Plaza.
An "over the top" welcome to a Stunning Place! Wine Chilling in the fridge and beautiful flowers when we arrived (It was our Anniversary), so we could actually stop, relax, and begin our vacation with a toast. We have travelled all over and The Cabin truly felt like "our home" for the week, and we nestled right in. We soaked in the amazing canyon views ; waking early each morning to enjoy coffee & feeding the array of birds & squirrels off the front porch, while taking in the sound of the bubbling creek and wondering "How did we get so Lucky!!??"...unwinding each evening with a glass of wine mesmerized by the most wondrous twinkling stars ... so many & so close it seemed as if you could almost reach out and touch them!. A true highlight of the vacation ... not to mention the hot tub right next to the creek!! The beds are top notch with sumptuous pillows and linens like sleeping on a cloud. I could easily go on and on, but you can sense that this place, and the warm welcoming attention to detail that Brian extends, is unexpected and exceptional! You will never find another place like this ... It is our 4th time & we will be back again & again:) You will not be disappointed !!
Thank you Thank you Brian for such a magical place to restore & rejuvenate:)
Warmly~ Nicolle & Robert
Wonderful home up in the mountains. Nicely appointed with a beautiful deck overlooking the stream. Lots of beautiful trees with abundant birds to watch while sipping your morning coffee. Quiet location far away from any noise or distractions. Definitely recommend if you are looking for some nice solitude in the mountains with beautiful trails nearby.
Loved the home and Brian was fabulous to work with. Enjoyed hiking, the balloon festival, visiting Santa Fe, a relaxing dinner at the house and hot tubbing. Lovely home and great experience. Thanks!
This is a wonderful get away in the trees. Close to all the Santa Fe action but far enough away for quiet peaceful relaxation. Excellent location for hiking or mountain biking. Brian is an excellent host.
This place was the perfect combination. Beautiful, secluded, peaceful location, but just minutes away from the amenities of the Four Seasons Encantada. Although we were not guests there, they didnt seem to care. We ate , drank , and booked mountain biking excursion out of the 4 seasons.
The amentities inside were top notch. We got a lot of use of the hot tub that was always hot, ready to go.
Drive to town not too bad, although the road to the cabin is pretty bumpy. Would be nice to get that paved over at somepoint.
Brian the owner was very accessible, responsive, and helpful.
Overall, a highly recommended property.
