Youngsville House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps, Modern Adobe

'It was all so far away--there was quiet and an untouched feel to the country and I could work as I pleased.' Georgia O'Keeffe

Serenity abounds at Casa Bonita, where it is easy to see why this country had such a profound impact on Georgia O'Keeffe. Light and open, this modern adobe rests on ten acres overlooking Abiquiu Lake towards Ghost Ranch, with gorgeous views in all directions. Picture windows throughout the living area allow you to appreciate the vistas from the comfort of the well-appointed interior. The covered portales (covered porches) are ideal for enjoying the tranquility of the environment. Admire the view of the Pedernal from the portale off of the master suite, or take in the iconic landscape of Ghost Ranch while you grill on the portale off of the kitchen.

Spend your days hiking, visiting area galleries, or reconnecting with your own creative side. And after enjoying the unique sunset at the end of the day, savor the starlight of the unadulterated night sky.

'My first memory is of light--the brightness of light--light all around.' Georgia O'Keeffe

Grand Vistas

  • 4 of 5

What a view! This home is perched atop a hill over the lake, with views of Ghost Ranch in the front and O'Keeffe's famous Pedernal in the back. The house is beautifully and simply decorated and blends right into it's surrounding landscape. We had a great time exploring the area during the day and cooking and enjoying the view at night. It's off the beaten path which for us was a good thing, so plan to bring all you'll need for your stay!

The owners, John and Scott, are awesome and available to you if you have any questions at all.

If you're considering booking this place, do it now. There's not a better home in the entire area. Here are words I would use to describe it:

- relaxing

- quiet

- the VIEWS!

- secluded

- sunny

- cooling breezes

- serene

- cozy

And literally I could come up with thousands more. We are considering visiting every year now. It's the best.

Tranquility And Beauty In the High Desert

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I were considering where to stay over the course of our first anniversary, it was clear that this property potentially represented all that we hoped to experience on our journey - privacy, scenic beauty, and a connection with nature. Our stay at the casa was exactly what we had hoped for. The layout of the adobe allows you incredible views of Abiquiu Lake, the surrounding property, and Ghost Ranch from every vantage point in the house. The adobe's layout, design, and structure compliment its context so well. We greatly enjoyed our walk down the arroyo to the lake and loved just sitting outside and taking in all that was around us. When you plan your stay, we would highly recommend using an AWD vehicle with good clearance as the roadways close to the property are rugged. In summary, we had a fantastic stay and couldn't have been more pleased.

Well situated/equipped home ..amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our brief stay at your home. Finding the place was a bit of a challenge, but we were guided to the place by the contact person in the directions. The place had everything we needed. The view of the lake and mountains was spectacular. We hiked to the lake along the arroyo and encountered a rattler...without incident. The road to the house is rather come prepared. Thank you for sharing your place.

The place to be

  • 5 of 5

The location of Casa Bonita is so excellent that one wished not to have to go away. A cinematographic view to a most gorgeous landscape let's you almost forget all earthly troubles. The house is best equipped to also accomodate a longer stay. The little natural zoo, (bunnies, rares, birds, deers) to be viewed even from inside the house, let's you spend some nice time. Yet, Casa Bonita is located way out in the nowhere land so that one has to have a good reason to drive a longer distance for visiting people or public events.

Perfect Serenity

  • 5 of 5

This place is a blessing in our world. The stillness and magnificent connection to stunning nature is like plugging right back into your soul. The hosts were perfectly responsive and then left me alone to enjoy my retreat in peace. I am deeply grateful to the owners for sharing this special place.
