Overview

New Mexico Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, Loft, 2 Bathrooms (sleeps up to 9 in beds, 2 air mattresses)

This is a beautiful, secluded log cabin nestled on three acres of forest land in the mountains above Jemez Springs at an elevation of approximately 8,300 feet. We have enjoyed this wonderful place and want to share with other friends, families and guests.

Located at mile marker 33 on Hwy 4, the cabin is 1 hour 45 minutes from the ABQ International Airport and 1 hour 20 minutes from downtown Santa Fe.

Upon arrival, you will find an array of amenities to enjoy during your relaxing mountain retreat, including:

1. an open floor plan with exposed log beams;

2. There are 3 bedrooms and a loft area, which are organized as follows:

a. 1st floor – King size bed

b. 2nd floor- Double bed

c. 2nd Floor – triple bunk (3 twins)

d. 2nd Floor Loft area – trundle bed (2 twins)

e. There is room in the loft, in the bunk room and in the living room to put the 2 air mattresses.

3. a dining room with seating for eight;

4. large windows to admire the beautiful vistas;

5. two full bathrooms;

6. a full kitchen, including a dishwasher

7. an outdoor grill;

8. a full laundry; and

9. a wood burning stove with pre-chopped wood outside.

- if you need basic groceries, Amanda’s, a small general store, located 7 miles south on Hwy. 4, has groceries, bait and tackle, and fishing licenses;

There are books, board games, video games, and movies catering to all ages. There is a flat screen TV, Blu-Ray player and XBox 360, along with basic internet access. Cable and basic television are not available. The cabin has very spotty cell reception, but has a landline with free long distance throughout the contiguous United States. Internet is also very unreliable but who needs it with all this?!

From the large front porch, which accommodates up to eight adults, you can enjoy incredible sunsets, star gazing and abundant wildlife. In the winter months, enjoy the view of the snow-capped ridge and sledding on the hill in the front of the cabin (two small sleds are provided).

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 25 minutes you can visit Bandelier National Monument, the Valles Caldera or Fenton Lake. Within 30 minutes you can be in downtown Los Alamos in the north, 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, enjoy the views, the air, and the peace and quiet.

We are willing to consider all events on our property. Please contact us regarding specific limitations and fees related to events.

NEED MORE ROOM? If you are planning a family or group gathering and don't want to be separated, our next-door neighbor also has space for six people. Her VRBO listing number is 482555 (Marsha's Writing Retreat). So go ahead and plan that family reunion, and be right next to each other in the mountains!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Big Foot Cabin! The property has everything a family can ask for to really feel comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the toys and games provided, and us adults had a ball with the bbq and fire pit! We would definitely stay again....thanks much for a memorable weekend Jason and Leslie!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

I believe this is the fourth year that we have reserved this property for an annual retreat. It is just perfect. It's far enough away from the city to feel as if we are really getting away, Yet easy to get to. It is a very comfortable home. I love the front deck and the back patio. Both are situated in such a way to maintain privacy. We look forward to returning again next year.

Absolutely Gorgeous setting!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in great condition! Everything you need to feel at home! Very clean! My family was lucky to be part of an amazing winter experience. We had an early Christmas complete with snow, sledding, baking and a Christmas tree too! We even wrapped the stair rails outside with lights! Directions to the cabin were spot on. The drive ways are steep, and a bit hard to negotiate with snow, take your time! Sand was available everywhere in the neighborhood traction. One of 3 driveways was perfect sledding. The neighbors even invited us to zipline. The owners are concerned for your welfare and comfort. Very good communication with us before, and after and ready to help with anything! It takes special people to make their home yours, and they did it! I recommend this cabin to anyone.

Great place, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Actually I stayed here back in November of 2013. It was a wonderful time then and by the looks of the posted pictures they have added some amenities such as the back patio. We only had 5 people stay, and there was more than enough room. Kitchen had plenty of dishes and utensils, plenty of wood on the wood pile for the snow storm that rolled in on the second day. Warning, the driveway is steep and with a foot or two of snow on the ground only the Jeep could make it up.

As advertised, clean with plenty of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly as described, and nicer in person than in photos, and photos look great. Easily slept 11 people, with two people on air mattresses on the floor. Could have fit more in the basement if needed. Owner are extremely accomodating and easy to work with and to get a hold of. Place was very clean when we got there. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a large cabin for a big group. Note that the cabin is built into a hill, but they have a flat patio of about 20' by 45' so you can grill, eat outside with plenty of space. The deck is fabulous for sunsets.

As advertised - such an enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Big Foot Cabin is clean, in very good shape and in such a beautiful location. There are many beds to choose from and lots of open space. There's a big table in the dining area as well as out on the patio which accommodated our group. The owners were great about staying in communication leading up to our trip. We never needed to contact them during the trip but appeared to be available if we did. We had wifi the entire time. We would return and I would also recommend this cabin to friends and family. It was just right for us and at a great rate.
