Jeff Beeman purchased this House in 2006
Why Jeff Beeman chose Abiquiu
I decided I wanted more wide open space and discovered Abiquiu! I bought my Northern New Mexico style Pitched Tin Roof home in Abiquiu, January 2005. I remodeled the North Wing of the home and converted it to a Vacation Rental Casita. My occupancy rate has been 90%-100% each month ever since! I enjoy the company of my Paint Horse "Buster", the 3 mini Sicilian Donkeys 'Shawnee', 'Sunny' and 'Lolita'. (They stand only 3 feet high) and Alpacas Forest and Copper. In addition to Cardigan Corgi named 'Soloman - a.k.a. 'Sully' and mini Tibetan terrier named Minnie. And precious cats 'Bibi' and 'Chumley'. For those of your with allergies, the Horse, Donkey & Alpaca Barn is located downwind 1000 feet from the Casita. My friendly dogs are only allowed in the common areas if invited by the guests. We are all quiet and keep a very low profile and are around only when you need us. I enjoy meeting the wonderful people that have visited and many that have revisited from all around the country and some from other countries that have stayed at my Casita de Chuparosa here in Abiquiu! I look forward to your stay! Jeff

Exceeded all expectations!
We absolutely loved our time at Jeff's Casita de Chuparosa! Jeff was very kind and welcoming, and so were the hummingbirds, mini donkeys, alpacas, and Buster the horse. The casita was a great home base from which to explore the area, do some hiking, etc., and a very comfortable place for reading, watching the sunset, and hottubbing under the stars. Waking up to the view of the mountains from the main bedroom was spectacular! The kitchen was well equipped and we didn't lack for anything. We hope to make it back to the area, and if we do, we definitely plan to stay at Jeff's casita again.
We loved everything about our stay in Jeff's cozy, beautifully appointed guest house! We had a great weekend reading in front of the fireplace (thoughtfully pre-made so all we had to do was a light a match) and soaking in the hot tub under the stars. The complimentary breakfast items were also a very nice touch and helped make our stay all the more perfect. As a pet owner, it was great to also be able to bring our dog for a very small fee - she felt right at home in the house and had her very own private backyard. We'd highly recommend Jeff's place to anyone visiting New Mexico!
Our Christmas stay at Casita de Chuparosa was awesome! Despite some difficulties and delays en route (we drove from PA to NM), during which time we kept thinking, "We should have probably just stayed home!", we were so happy to be there once we arrived. The casita was perfect and decorated beautifully for Christmas. It had a great ambience and comfort (not to mention the fresh roasted coffee and organic cooking ingredients and supplies).
Jeff is a wonderful host! He texted us and answered questions and checked on us all along our trip. He made sure that we had everything we needed, but totally respected our privacy. In fact, we didn't actually meet him until we'd been there for about 3 days, despite the fact he lives next door! He's wonderful and kind, and after finally meeting him, we felt we'd made a new lifelong friend.
Casita de Chuparosa is definitely in our hearts, and we hope to return there soon!
We definitely would recommend Abiquiu and Casita de Chuparosa to our friends. One of our favorite vacations ever!
Gorgeous, quiet retreat in rustic New Mexico
This was a fantastic place to stay! Two friends and I were attending a ceramic workshop in Abiquiu and shared the "casita" which is situated on a jaw-dropping gorgeous site about 20 miles from Georgia O'Keefe's beloved Ghost Ranch. It was cozy, comfortable, immaculate, artfully furnished and well-supplied with everything necessary for an extended stay. Jeff Beeman, the owner, is a delightful person, genuinely interested in the well-being of his guests and graciously accommodating - especially for freshly-ground coffee beans every morning! Although the town is tiny, the eating opportunities are big at three great places each within a 10-minute drive: Bose's General Store, the Abiquiu Inn, and El Farolito. The experience exceeded my expectations beyond the description provided in the listing, and I want to return this year. Thank you, Jeff!
What a GREAT place, and Jeff is so accommodating, he was there if we needed him. Cant say enough good things about this property and owner!!
Thank you Jeff!!
What a fantastic place! The views are amazing from this casita and Jeff was a fantastic host. Our kids loved feeding the donkeys and seeing the other animals, including dozens of humming birds right outside the front door.
The casita was beautifully decorated in a southwest style. I loved the art work in particular. The kitchen was fully stocked with every possible combination of breakfast treats, which made life easier. And Jeff had copious notes and instructions on how things worked which was very helpful. We used the casita as a base for various hikes, including at Plaza Blanca and Ghost Ranch both of which were amazing.
The only disappointment was that the hot tub stopped working the morning we arrived - as it was July 4 weekend he wasn't able to get it repaired immediately. Jeff was very apologetic and even paid for a meal out for the whole family as compensation for us. Great service.
If we are back in the Abiqui area I'd definitely return to Casita Chuparosa.
