Soak in the hot tub while looking at the stars. You can schedule an appointment for healing body work in the glass house at the river's edge. The lack of TV reception encourages you to free yourself from the demands of the electronic world. (WiFi and a landline are available for those who need to or wish to stay connected.)

The SpaceMy family home, nestled in Abiquiu, in the beautiful Chama valley, in Northern New Mexico. Abiquiu is a quaint and eclectic gathering of both native New Mexicans and those in the know. The house was completely remodeling in 2005 from the roof to the floors. All new kitchen and amazing bathroom await you and you won't find is a hastily appointed 'vacation rental,' this is our home, and it's been beautifully appointed with an eclectic combination of modern pieces and beautiful antiques.

It's such a beautiful and quiet place to be where the stars at night seem to go on forever. The experience of being in the village of Abiquiu is such a unique perspective on life. It's not like the polished, touristy side of New Mexico; this house is located in the same place that people settled 100 years ago and continued with their lives. The home is just a short walk to Georgia O'Keeffe's home and a short drive to Ghost Ranch. The area brings many repeat visitors and warrants new explorations with each visit.

Casa Ambrosia is nestled in total peace and privacy on 4 acres, bordering National Forest, and surrounded by tall cottonwood, pine, and oak trees, with an expansive view of the pastoral river valley of El Rito and the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains off in the distance. This wonderful, comfortable, and serene hideaway accommodates four+ people. The uniquely designed adobe house with high wood ceilings and impressive vigas is spacious and filled with light. There is a large semi-circular sun room, built like a sunken kiva, that is designed after Casa Grande in Chaco Canyon. There is one bath with tub and shower and two large bedrooms, each with a spectacular view. The softly curved walls of most rooms create a calm and nurturing environment. A fireplace adds to the warmth and comfort of the radiant floor heat. And along with great indoor living and dining spaces, there is a covered patio for outdoor dining and relaxation. A newly added hot tub provides the perfect way to relax under the starry nighttime sky. Casa Ambrosia borders the mountainous Carson National Forest and you can hike for many miles right outside your back door. A short drive takes you to a creekside trail leading to Potrero Falls amidst tall Ponderous pines and aspens, or to a dramatic colorful outcropping of volcanic upthrust near a shady stream. Nearby forest roads lead you to high mountain meadows filled with wildflowers and streams and breathtaking views, or off into desert canyonlands, with red cliff walls and towering rock formations. In winter, snowshoeing and cross country skiing are great pastimes. Year round, the very clear night sky is perfect for stargazing. The historic town of El Rito has it's own charm. This traditional Northern New Mexican village has a well-supplied library, a traditionally-built adobe church, and El Farolito, a small family restaurant, world famous for its authentic northern New Mexico cuisine, recommended in the Rand McNally Road Atlas and Gourmet Magazine. Their red and green chili dishes are delicious and very reasonable.

Further north in Chama, you can ride the historic Toltec Railroad through the high mountains, catching the glory of the changing colors of Fall. 12 miles west is the beautifully appointed Ojo Caliente Hot Springs Resort and Spa, with a variety of mineral pools to soak in, plenty of massage and spa treatments to choose from, and a delicious restaurant to top off an adventurous day. One hour to Santa Fe, and a bit more to Taos, you can enjoy all kinds of fine dining, live classical music, museums, galleries, boutique shops, antique stores, films, opera, health and beauty resorts, and much more.

Modest mini apartment in an artists's studio, on a spectacular mesa above the famous Plaza Blanca, in Abiquiu, New Mexico, one hour Northwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The painter, Georgia O'Keeffe lived for years in the village of Abiquiu, and painted many remarkable landscapes of this magical place. From the abundant ancient Indian ruins, to Ghost Ranch, The Monastery in the Desert, Dar Al Islam Mosque, one can drive and hike through the desert colors of ochre, red, and white stone formations, that reveal vast geological time frames. There is a rich history of pueblo indians and Spanish culture, mixed with people who come to live here from all over the world. The western landscape of Abiquiu and the surrounding area provides the backdrop to countless major movies. (At this time there are two being shot here.) This is only some of the remarkable features of Abiquiu. There is so much more! The small apartment has:one (temperpedic) queen bed, can accomedate up to two people, a shower in the bathroom,small kitchen with stove and refrigerator and a patio to relax in, after exploring the desert. New Mexico is the Land of Enchantment. We will make your stay unforgetable, within a budget! We will provide morning rolls and coffee/tea and a welcome snack, but you will want to bring groceries if you are staying a while.

The SpaceYes, this apartment is in the barn, but this is not any falling down creaky old barn; it's a newer stucco/adobe style building in the Northern New Mexico style. The apartment is clean, self-contained from working barns areas, with two windows offering fresh air, owl hoots and views into our kitchen garden/orchard and majestic cottonwoods of the Bosque. In season, enjoy your share of fresh veggies and fruits from the garden. Bring a fishing pole and try your hand at landing fresh trout direct off our private riverbank. The apartment has a kitchenette with dual hot plate, microwave, small refrigerator, pots, pans, utensils, French press, electric water kettle, toaster and more. Three converted barn stalls away? Feel free to use our small gym with treadmill, spinning bikes (with clip-ins and baskets), and free weights. Guest AccessThe apartment is your private space. The land is wide open. Wander the fields, enjoy breakfast in the garden or next to the Acequia, swim or fish the river. Hike the Santa Fe National Forest across the river or the Carson National Forest across the highway. Interaction with GuestsOur main house is enough steps away for your privacy, but few enough steps should you need help with anything at any time. We do need access to the main barn--not to your private space--to feed the critters (horses, cats, dogs) and to the garden to keep it growing, so you'll see us around, but how much interaction you want is totally up to you. The NeighborhoodAbiquiu! Land of many generations of Native Americans and Spanish descendants, long-time local farmers and newer-comer artists. Georgia O'Keefe country as it's also called. Running, hiking, Abiquiu Lake, Ghost Ranch, the Georgia O'Keefe home tour, Ojo Caliente, El Rito, Plaza Blanca, Taos--it's all minutes to miles away from your door. Come relax by the river or explore as far as your adventuring spirit demands. Getting AroundYou definitely need a car. Our driveway alone is a 1/3 mile long gravel road (ensuring total privacy!). Bodes General Store is 2.6 miles away with good selection of food stuffs, beer, wine, camping gear and assorted nuts and bolts (truly, nuts and bolts). Santa Fe is a 1 hour drive. Taos about 1 hr 15 min. Other Things to NoteThis is a working farm and horse property. Our two quarterhorses--Spud, and Rodeo--love meeting new folks but if you're allergic to horses, well this is probably not for you. We also share our lives with two Standard Poodles (Steinbeck and Paqo), and two barn cats Tux and Mrs T, but none of them EVER go into your space. Cell phone reception is spotty at best. Sometimes ok down at the river or halfway up the driveway. There is a landline for outgoing calls in the apartment and the internet is strong enough for Facetime, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Hangout calls.

The SpaceThe glass and screen house is tucked into a private glen at the edge of the Rio Chama. It's a single room with a wood burning stove and a space heater, surrounded on 3 sides by plexiglass panels which can swing open to allow cross breezes. The sofa turns into a twin bed, though horrifying as most sofa beds are, this is the most comfortable bed that I own (if you like firm mattresses). Guest AccessOther guests on the property may come to use the hot tub. I'll let you know if there are other guests, so that you can schedule times. The outdoor kitchen and outdoor shower are on the other side of the land. The shower has a dressing room attached. Interaction with GuestsAvailable but unoptrusive. The NeighborhoodI have a list of some nearby walking and hiking trails. There are many opportunities for both mountain and street bikes. I swim at Abiquiu reservoir. You can fish in the river and at the lake. I'm 15 minutes away from Ghost Ranch, 5 minutes from Georgia O'Keefe's, though you'll need a reservation for that tour. I'm a half hour from Ojo Caliente mineral springs. Other Things to NoteThe river is very near the studio so I suggest that children not stay in the studio unless you can be very vigilant. My grandchildren do play here and there is a playground set up away from the river. Though I request that you not smoke inside the studio, you may do so outside.

The SpaceStaying in this beautiful Earthship is a unique experience, with curved walls, spacious rooms and southern facing windows exposing some of the clearest skies in the hemisphere. The home sits on 7 acres with 360-degree views, and overlooking Georgia O'Keefe's often painted Pedernal mountain. A perfect artist's paradise. Guest AccessThe home is designed with an open floor plan, four (so called) pods/open rooms, and all south-facing windows. Be prepared to slow down, detach and enjoy the beauty of the rugged Southwest in a one-of a kind home. Interaction with GuestsSomeone is close by to offer help and suggestions -- and to offer gear should you want a day at the lake! The NeighborhoodPerched on a mesa top overlooking the valley with extraordinary views. A few minute's drive to Bode's General Store and Frosty Cow Ice cream, Abiquiu Lake and Ghost Ranch retreat center and the Christ Monastery in the desert. Other Things to NoteJust up the road from the historic village of Abiquiu, restaurants and a short drive to Abiquiu Lake, the frequently painted Pedernal mountain, and the red cliffs of Ghost Ranch. Abundant hiking and a 20 minute drive to natural healing hot springs. An hours drive to Taos or Santa Fe.

So you know, we've been renting this house for quite a while but have just moved to VRBO so if you'd like to read some of our reviews, please scroll to the bottom. My family home, nestled in Abiquiu, in the beautiful Chama valley, in Northern New Mexico. Abiquiu is a quaint and eclectic gathering of both native New Mexicans and those in the know. The house was completely remodeling in 2005 from the roof to the floors. All new kitchen and amazing bathroom await your restful hat you won't find is a hastily appointed 'vacation rental', this is our home and it's been beautifully appointed with an eclectic combination of modern pieces and beautiful antiques. Far from stuffy and boring, this house can be your jumping off point for all sorts of adventures in northern New Mexico, whether you're venturing into Santa Fe to peruse art galleries or headed to Taos to enjoy some fun in the snow, this house can be your idyllic escape from the hectic everyday. It's such a wonderful and quiet place to be where the stars at night seem to go on forever. The experience of being in the village of Abiquiu is such a unique perspective of life. It's not like the polished, touristy side of New Mexico, this house is located in the same place that people settled 100 years ago and continue with their lives. The home is just a short walk to Georgia O'Keeffe's home and a short drive to Ghost Ranch. The area brings many repeat visitors and warrants new exploration with each visit. Take a drive out into the Chama River canyon to hike, visit the Benedictine Monastery, enjoy the hot springs at Ojo Caliente or simply embrace the wonderful nature of Abiquiu and allow yourself to enjoy it all. Discover a new world this Columbus Day weekend, October 11th, 12th and 13th, as more than sixty Abiquiú artists open their studios from 10:am to - 5:pm to friends, old and new, during one of the most beautiful times of the year in Northern New Mexico. The Abiquiú Studio Tour is a self-guided, driving tour that takes visitors and collectors through the village of Abiquiú and the surrounding Chama River Valley – a landscape of imposing mountains, spectacular rock formations, and the glorious rivers of the Piedra Lumbra basin. Complimentary maps are available at all the studios and local businesses. If you're looking for a unique experience, this is the house for you! Please read a few of our personal reviews- Casa El Artista is the ideal place to unplug and escape the concrete jungle. The home is well equipped with modern appliances and very comfortable accommodations. The decor and ambiance of the home are the the icing on the proverbial cake, with beautiful original artwork, hardwood floors, authentic wood burning stoves and a bathroom that puts a high end spa to shame. The view is absolutely breathtaking and the gorgeous courtyard is the perfect place for star gazing in the night sky. My favorite childhood memories are of the many road trips I took with my family to Northern New Mexico, where we explored all of it's beauty, history and culture. It has always been my dream that I would be able to take my children there and create memories for them. In a world where you are constantly inundated with instant gratification vacations, I never thought it would be possible, logistically or financially. A friend referred me to Casa El Artista and with it's perfect location and more than reasonable rate, I was afforded the opportunity to take my children to my favorite places in the world. For 5 days, Casa El Artista became mission command for day trips to Santa Fe, Chaca Canyon National Historical Park, Sandia Peak, Camel Rock and Santa Fe ski basin. Being able to cook in and pack lunches for day trips, I spent less money the entire trip, than I would have for 1 day at Disney World for a family of 4. Burk was very easy to communicate with and very flexible when I asked for another day at the last minute, so that I could take the kids to Ft. Sumner and the Billy The Kid museum on our way back to Texas. We will definitely be back, as there is so much more to explore. It was an honor to stay at Casa El Artista and for my family and I, it truly is a place where memories are made and dreams come true. Christi S. Dallas TX. What a wonderful place!! We had such a pleasant time at Burk's home in Abiquiu. The house is even more spacious and lovely than the pictures had us expecting. We stayed 2 and a half weeks, and our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Brenda was very sweet and helpful during our stay, and loaded us up with a huge pile of firewood -- we made fires everyday in the potbelly stoves. It felt special to be able to stay right in the pueblo village, with a very nice sense of history and kind neighbors. A good portion of our time was spent in the house as an artist retreat of sorts, and we also had a great time adventuring around the Abiquiu area. We went to the Poshuouinge ruins, on hikes around Ghost Ranch and the Abiquiu Lake and Dam, Echo Amphitheater, Plaza Blanca, the Monastery, Ojo Caliente, and of course Bode's just down the street. This was the perfect place to stay in an absolutely beautiful area! The next time we are in northern New Mexico we want to stay at Casa El Artista again, and for longer! Alex and Lili Chicago, IL Staying in the childhood home of Mr. Jackson in Abiquiu was magical. Driving up the packed clay road-past the last residence of Georgia O'Keefe- and through the pueblo Abiquiu was how the magic began. The casita was decorated in a very comforting fusion of Hispano, Anglo, and Genizaro elements which maintain the feeling that you are actually staying in a pueblo village. Also, the overall aesthetic of the casita is a wonderful combination of folk, antique and contemporary design elements. That being said, Mr. Jackson has equipped this casita with more than enough appliances to make your stay easy and comforting. This includes a phone and an internet connection, in that, a large portion of rural New Mexico is off the grid. Further, Brenda, who manages the property, is a gem. She can direct you to anything from farm land in Barranco, how to make a fire in the gorgeous vintage wood stoves, and where to get local regional chiles. She is an amazing resource! Also, the neighbor Dexter Trujillo is a very gracious, courteous, and helpful man. This is true about everyone we met around the pueblo. This casita can be used for seclusion with one of the most spectacular views I have ever seen. Also-because of its location-day trips to either Chama, the Taos pueblo, Espanola, and the Ojo Caliente Hot Springs were easy. Either way Bode's store at the bottom of the mesa where you turn into Abiquiu has everything you'll need. This includes organic foodstuffs as well. We got Tazo White Cumber Tea and Dr. Bronner's soap at Bode's general store!! Of course, we went to the Ghost Ranch, but we are foodies that are always looking for new exciting flavors. OMG. Like the Tewa-Spanish dialect of this region, the pueblo tribe’s cusine mixed with local hispano flavors is profoundly UNIQUE. We sampled food from Espanola to Chama through Ojo Caliente and El Rito. All within a day's exploration. Also, Brenda-and a dozen other people-clued us in to Romero's chiles in Espanola. With the chefly utensils provided in this casita we made our versions of the local fare. Eating while watching the indescribably beautiful New Mexican sunset. Totally magic!!! Italia Vancouver Wa. Burk has a well appointed adobe tucked above the church in Abiquiu. Burk renovated the adobe, filled it with art and it is quite the getaway for people who like to really 'live' in a place. We stayed for a week and wanted for nothing- my husband says, 'Every practical need and thensome was there, it was extremely liveable. Even the smallest issue was resolved immediately, despite Burk's being halfway across the country.' Burk was very attentive to our needs and he checked in to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after. We were also checked on periodically when we ran into Burk's friendly housekeeper down at Bode's General Store- she had brought a load of wood for the stoves and even hand picked overnight logs for us and instructed us to put them on the fire before turning in for the night so we'd wake up warm and with coals left. The entire casita has all one needs for comfortable living and the quiet pueblo makes it easy to unwind. The view of the Milky Way overhead is stunning, as is the Plaza Blanca- picturesque and full of technical scrambling and hiking. A nice soak in Burk's luxurious tub at the end of the day or a shower with a very groovy open air feel (awesome showerhead and hot water!) leaves you feeling spoiled rotten. My web developer husband was able to telecommute for the entire week, which was impressive- the AirPort will allow us to come back more frequently without needing to take vacation time. We were very glad to be able to take time away with our dog, who relished exploring the pueblo and trekking through the Plaza. I highly recommend Burk's house for people who aren't looking to be entertained or those who want to do destination dining. Stay the week- it is well worth it. Jennifer Albuquerque, NM

Now Martinez Casita opened also for short term rentals. Conveniently located next to Barranca Plaza Casita! Barranca is an old Hispanic hamlet just west of Abiquiu above the Chama River. On its small plaza there are a few adobe houses, one of which is a very charming two bedroom, one bath vacation home. The thick adobe walls have built-in traditional nicho's. The dining area comes with traditonal banco's and throughout the casita are tiled and wooden floors. A woodstove gives you great comfort in the winter. The thick walls keeps the house cool in the summer. A large garden with fruit trees surrounds the casita. In Barranca you will find a lively creek coming from the mountains. Follow the spring-fed creek up-stream and enter the Santa Fe National Forest with sensational views of the Abiquiu valley and the surrounding mountain lands. Badlands with goblin-like formations are nearby. The Chama River, along which are cattle ranches, is great for fishing. The casita is just minutes from Georgia O'Keeffe's home and a short drive from the Piedra Lumbre basin. Ghost Ranch is worth many visits and don't forget to drive out into the Chama River canyon to hike or visit the Benedictine Monastery. The Chama River Wilderness is paradise for explorers. The acequia, the traditional Hispanic community water system, is still held in high regard in Barranca. The mayordomo decides who irrigates when. The casita’s garden can be irrigated on Saturdays. Great day trips can be made to Ojo Caliente Mineral Hot Springs, Taos en Taos Pueblo, the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Chama (with the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad), Bandelier National Monument, Chaco Culture National Historic Park, Valle Grande, etc. etc. Hiking all throughout Georgia O'Keeffe's country side. Ghost Ranch, where Ms O'Keeffe had her studio, is just around the corner, Fishing in Abiquiu Lake or the Chama River, Hunting in Santa Fe and Carson National Forests (offices for obtaining permits in nearby El Rito and Espanola), Sightseeing all through the Canones Canyon and Piedra Lumbre valley, Boating and Waterskiing in Abiquiu Lake, Rafting on the Chama River. You'll find restaurants in nearby Abiquiu, El Rito, Espanola. Each year in October - Columbus Days Weekend - Abiquiu has its Abiquiu Studio Tour. A great time to enjoy the changing colors of our cottonwood trees and art by local artists.
