About the property

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

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

With spectacular views and a noticeable absence of people, light and noise, this was a fantastic escape. We hope to come back.

Wow, just, wow!

This is a wonderful, secluded property near Abiquiu (sort of rhymes with barbecue), New Mexico. I am writing this while staring at Lake Abiquiu as well as the beautiful mountains and wondering where exactly the Ghost Ranch is located in my view. We just arrived, but we are already in love. This looks to be a very comfortable home for a vacation. We have very little planned other than a tour of Ghost Ranch plus a day in Santa Fe at the museum. This Casa Bonita should restore the spirit and be a restful vacation. Be sure to stop at Estrella Del Norte on your way north up 285 at 503/Nambe if you enjoy a good wine. We feel blessed.

Owner's Response: Wendy, I'm so glad you are enjoying the house. Keep an eye out after dark and you can usually see car lights coming down the road from Ghost Ranch to the highway! Have a Great week! John

Romantic getaway perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are both from New Mexico and know how beautiful Abiuiu lake and the surrounding red rock canyons are. When we saw this house and realized where it was we immediately inquired about a stay.

The house sits just above the lake and offers stunning views of the canyon and a portion of the lake. It is located on a private drive where your closest neighbor is at least a mile away. The view of the night sky is breathtaking with so many stars you'd think you were at the planetarium.

The house is beautiful with wood ceilings and pine vigas throughout. Dark stained cement floors and recessed lighting add even more elegance to this lovely home. All modern appliances and a well stocked kitchen make cooking at home a joy.

This house is perfect for a romantic getaway where you can easily stay in the house the whole time relaxing on the front or back patio, as both offer breathtaking views of the lake and mountains. If you're a hiker, like I am, you can also drag your husband the short and easy half-mile trek to the lake. If you are so inclined to leave the property there are many trails, one that follows the Chama river on the other side of the dam is nice.

Scott was super quick to respond to my initial inquiry and made sure that we had everything we needed. There is a kiva fireplace and the owner offers plenty of wood in the event you stay in the winter. Because it is about fifteen minutes from the highway you might want to make a list and check it twice so you don't forget anything in the event you don't wish to leave.

Bottom line: My only regret, we didn't bring the dogs. We were more than pleased and will absolutely be staying here in the future.

Amazing beauty, solitude and superb home.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication with owner and caretakers. Easy to book and excellent directions to the most stunning home with views of the lake and mountains. The home was immaculate and the kitchen is fully stocked with anything needed to cook. All furnishings were comfortable as well as goegeous. The wifi was fine and they had all the Tv etc that some may enjoy. We did not turn on anything because we were completely there to find peace and quiet and be out in nature . We walked to lake and found it to be a nice and easy hike. We had proper boots and gear but it was a short and manageable . We saw huge deer, cows , coyotes and many beautiful birds. Our golden retriever was so happy and found all the beautiful sunny spots on both patios. She did not want to come inside except to sleep, and for that matter neither did we. We brought our food with us but Bodies grocery store has all you could want. We literally fell in love with this home and the complete solitude. The bedrooms are gorgeous and so are the views .

We have fallen in love with Casita Bonita and the location. We had snow in the morning and sun all other days. We sat out at night and heard the most amazing sounds and saw the beautiful stars , moon etc.

If you love the mountains and want to get away this is the place for you .

Second time

This was our second visit to Casa Bonita, and it was even better than our first. Comfortable, everything you need, views from every window, quiet, birds, wildlife and more! We have already booked our third visit.
