Overview

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.

Quiet and Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Bonita. We passed by burrowing owls and prairie dogs every day (which the kids loved). Saw lots of rabbits, deer, birds and lizards. The view was fantastic and the setting serene. Perfectly located we spent time in the Chama River Valley, Ghost Ranch, Echo Amphitheater, Abiquiu, Bandelier, and Tsankawi. The house itself is beautifully made and maintained.

Thank you!

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Bonita! The home and views were even more beautiful than pictured, and John and Scott were thoughtful hosts who took a lot of care in providing very detailed and helpful information to ensure a wonderful stay. They were very quick to reply to our messages. The house itself was gorgeous, immaculately clean, and fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. Though stormy weather fouled up our plans to explore more of the area (sadly, we couldn't picnic at Lake Abiquiu or go hiking), the house proved to be the perfect place to hole up, and thanks to the enormous, crystal clear picture windows on all sides, we had a front row seat to the dramatic, ever-shifting skyscape during a day-long thunderstorm. We got to see some incredible lightning storms in the evening as well. Rain or shine, it's a magical experience to stay here, and we'd come back in a heartbeat.

Beautiful remote getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, cozy and beautiful! It is very remote, takes about 30 minutes driving on gravel roads to get here from the town of Abiquiu. Well equipped, incredible quiet, views and stars!

Wow, just, wow!

  • 5 of 5

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
