The Bigfoot Cabin, an amazing getaway mountain retreat, is an authentic log cabin and all the amenities you could want as you experience the calm of mountain life. It is 3,000 square feet tucked away on 3 acres of pristine land next to the Santa Fe National Forest. From the moment you enter the retreat you will feel the seclusion and quiet you expect from the outside while getting the true log cabin ambiance inside. This includes interior wood beams on the ceiling and walls to the wood burning stove that create the atmosphere of a relaxing evening away from it all.
There are two parking areas, with the lower area supporting a staircase to easily enter the home. Once inside, the cabin enjoys individually controlled thermostats for heat in each room, ample natural light, a full kitchen with dishwasher, a full size washer and dryer, three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a loft. A newly remodeled extra large basement allows for a great entertainment area from which kids can play video games or watch movies, while parents can rest assured that it will remain quiet upstairs. The basement boasts 1,200 square feet, a half bathroom, a foosball table, and a ping pong table as well as extra room for sleeping bags on the carpeted floor should the need arise.
The master bedroom has a king size bed while the upstairs bedrooms have a double bed in one and a triple bunkbed in the other. There is also a loft with another single bed along with a pull out single trundle. In all, we have beds to sleep nine and two air mattresses to accommodate two additional adults with ease. For parties greater than 11, please contact us as there is plenty of space for sleeping bags.
The dining room has seating for eight and a living room with seating for five adults surrounding the wood burning stove, which is stocked with pre-chopped wood.
There are two large TVs, a gaming console, and two DVD players for the many movies available at the cabin. There are also numerous books and board games for families. While there is wifi, it can be on the slower side. For those that would like to stay in contact with others, a land line is available as cell service is very limited.
The secluded back patio has recently been completed to allow for outside grilling, a fire pit to stay warm and enjoy s’mores while star gazing and four tables with 16 chairs, allowing everyone to enjoy the crisp fresh pine scented air. The large front wooden deck, which hosts up to eight adults, has beautiful 180 degree views of unspoiled nature to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening sunset on the treetops. In the winter months, enjoy the view of the snow-capped ridge and sledding on the hill in the front of the cabin (small sleds are provided).
As the size of the log cabin is quite large, there is ample room to have larger gatherings, from church groups to scouting events to family reunions. Our family absolutely loves the Bigfoot cabin and want to share the same experience with you and your family
Hiking is limitless, and the cabin is a perfect starting point for walks in the forest or strolls on the access road. The cabin is ten minutes from waterfalls and swimming at Jemez Falls and the East Fork Trail to the south. Fishing and hiking at Las Conchas is 10 minutes away to the north. Within 30 minutes you can visit Bandelier National Monument, the Valles Caldera (cross country skiing and snow shoeing in the winter) or Fenton Lake. Within 35 minutes you can be in downtown Los Alamos in the north, downhill skiing in Pajarito Ski Area or be in downtown Jemez Springs to the south.
The Village of Jemez Springs has great shopping flavored by local artists. There are great restaurants, including a real saloon where you can eat, drink and meet the locals. Also located in Jemez Springs is the famous hot springs and full service day spa where everyone on your trip can be pampered after a long day of enjoying the outdoors.
Enjoy the wonderful cabin with your friends and loved ones in this beautiful mountain setting. Have fun, take in the views, the air, and the peace and quiet.
