Northern New Mexico Getaway

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

House....two bedrooms...each room has a double bed and is $135 a night

nestled amongst the pines and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, on the high road to Taos, lies the village of Truchas. The Village was founded in the year 1754 by the King of Spain who granted land to several families (of which many still remain). There are numerous artisans that live and work in the village. Weavers, potters, sculptors,painters,wood carvers, furniture makers, contemporary and traditional. We have many galleries and open studios for you to explore. I have two bedrooms each with wireless internet, the larger of the two has a kiva fireplace and a wood burning stove. Both rooms have a flat screen TV. A small library with internet access (where I serve coffee, tea, fresh juice and homemade biscuits and jams) also has a wood burning stove for those chilly winter mornings. Down comforters and pillows are in both rooms. A shared bathroom with new mexican tiles around the shower and sink areas.WE DO NOT OFFER KITCHEN FACILITIES, there is a refrigerator, microwave and an outdoor barbecue for your use. Restaurants are within a ten to twenty minute drive. Pets allowed (if agreeable with my pets) Laundry facilities are available. Hiking and Biking out the front door. And for those who fish, ski, golf or horse back ride, you can find all of that and much more within a twenty mile range. Santa Fe is 45 minutes south, Ojo Caliente Hot Springs 45 minutes West and Taos one hour north. If you are a writer, an artist or someone who just enjoys the clean mountain air and the beauty that surrounds you, you will find paradise in our home and the magic of Truchas and Northern New Mexico.

An Adventure in Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Northern New Mexico Getaway is perfectly named. New Mexico is a land of beautiful and varied landscapes but this is the only area where I’ve found absolute tranquility and magnificence at the same time. The town of Truchas, a Spanish land grant village, is less than an hour north of Santa Fe, the site of Robert Redford’s 1988 “The Milagro Beanfield War,” and easily passed by if you are on the High Road to Taos. All of these elements make it an intriguing and extraordinarily peaceful destination. Once you turn south off the main road, you are “on retreat.” There are unimaginable vistas and an absolute quiet I have only known at Buddhist retreats. It is so aptly named, a “getaway.”

Our host, Lorey, provided us with all the amenities we could have asked for. Her home is lovely and the perfect place from which to take long walks through the striking landscape. Her knowledge and stories of the area are fascinating, and her hospitality was both enthusiastic and comforting. And we were pleased to learn of the new restaurant in town. After all our needs were taken care of by her, the sunset out one window and the full moon rising out the other did the rest.

Northern New Mexico Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a memorial service in Truchas and I found Lorey's place which was just up the road. It was a bit cool for an April day when we arrived, and Lorey had a fire warming the rental. Her place is very comfortable and inviting. She had a bottle of wine awaiting us and when we let her know we wanted to use the grill in the evening she got it ready so all we had to do was strike a match. In the morning she had a delicious breakfast of muffins, yogurt, fresh berries and coffee awaiting us. I highly recommend that if your are looking for a place to get away and relax, Lorey's rental is the place!! Thanks Lorey!!

Lovely, as usual!

  • 5 of 5

This has become our choice for a getaway from the routines of our busy lives. This place provides relaxation, charm, quiet and abundant nearby outdoor recreation. What more could one ask for! Lorey is a wonderful host and we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and sharing stories. The hardest thing each time is knowing that we eventually have to leave. Thank you again Lorey for sharing your home and a special part of New Mexico!

Feels Like Home!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Lorey's while we attended a wedding nearby. It was clean, quiet, and full of NM charm. Lorey catered to us from the point we made the reservation through to our departure. A lovely bottle of wine and a warm fire were waiting for us upon arrival and a healthy breakfast with warm homemade muffins was provided each morning. The location was perfect for day trips on the High Road to Taos and even skiing at Sipapu (great little ski area!!). We look forward to visiting again in the summer.
