We are former college English teachers who love the southwest. We live in Tesuque, just north of Santa Fe.
Glynn purchased this House in 2000
Why Glynn chose Youngsville
Having been in love with the southwest for a long time, we found this site in 2000 and it was more beautiful than any of the places we had seen--or have seen since-- during our travels throughout this extraordinary part of the country.

We came back!
My son and I were here May, 2016. We found the casita just as enchanting as it was then. The views are as spectacular and the house as relaxing as ever. If you want a get away in Georgia O'Keefe country, this is the place to be. Just a few miles from Abiquiu and the same from Ghost Ranch. Would recommend it without reservation.
Such a cute place to stay. The views are tremendous. My two dogs had a great time sniffing out all the new smells. Each morning we saw rabbits, and the afternoon brought birds to watch. The neighbors are close enough to know you aren't alone, but far enough away to give you plenty of privacy and an escape from the city life. You may never want to leave!
The property owner provided excellent communication. The property was better than the pictures and description! The house is lovely and the VIEW is breathtaking. We so enjoyed watching the sunset change the colors of the mountains as we sipped wine on the back porch. Best of all was soaking in the hot tub under the milky way - it is a memory we will treasure forever.
I never tire from reading these responses. The first time I walked up to the top of this mesa, I cried. Now I smile every time we share this most magnificent of sites, with its 360 degree views, knowing its available to so many people to enjoy.
Had a quiet, peaceful, relaxing honeymoon with the new hubs! Loved relaxing in the hot tub under the stars. We had a cute furry visitor, Dakota the white poodle, which was a lovely treat because we left our pup behind and missed her lots! Glynn and Scott were excellent hosts and had great communication/accommodations. We will be back!
another great visit
We were here for second time in a year and we will be back! This place is magnificent. If you want peace and quiet and big sky with a million stars and unparalleled views, this is IT. Oh and the house is pretty great too:)
Here I am working late at the office at my computer and I keep reaching back to my cell phone to look at the pictures of Glynn and Scott's Abiquiu Lake Casita and located on their mesa property. I was there with a friend a couple weekends ago. What a sense of peace and tranquility you have here. You could sit in one place all day and just watch how the sunlight can completely change the look of the landscape - especially the Pedernal Mountain and the Red Cliffs overlooking Abiquiu Lake.
One night while soaking in their warm hot tub, we saw stars, the moon, and even lightening in the distance. You can find whatever you need here be it time to read, hike, rest, reflect, write, paint, contemplate life and the galaxies above, ponder the life of those who lived here in this magical place before, do yoga/meditate, or even visit with the neighbors sweet dog Dakota. Oh and yes you will sleep well, very well. The bed is extremely comfortable.
The house décor is perfect and has all you need and more. From their couch, you can see the Pedernal, perfectly framed by one of their large windows. If you want to venture out more, you can take a short drive to Ghost Ranch. We had the opportunity to meet some neighbors, all just incredibly nice, just like our hosts. Next trip includes our family. Thank you Glynn and Scott.
