The SpaceOne Heart Ranch is a 30 acre, private, sustainable retreat for writers, artists or just anyone who wants to truly chill out. It is quiet as there are no electrical wires. Just catching the sun to provide electricity for the entire house. Water comes from the sky and goes thru a complex filtration system to make it drinkable. House is heated by two wood burning stoves. Full kitchen. Lots of land to hike on. There is a full bathroom but also an outhouse with a view of the Ortiz Mountains. Room with a view! Town of Madrid, NM close enough if one wants to break the silence. Cell phones do work. WIFI also. No children or pets allowed. One needs a 4 wheel drive vehicle with high clearance as the road in is challenging. You will be 25 miles from Santa Fe and also from Albuquerque. Buy your groceries before going to the ranch. 2 night minimum stay required. Guest AccessGuests will have access to two wood burning stoves, Dish Network, cell service, a loft, full kitchen, full bath, vast acreage to hike on, and a 3-tiered flagstone firepit. Interaction with GuestsAs needed, if guests need support or want input. The NeighborhoodI love the privacy and peacefulness of One Heart Ranch. And the community of Madrid (15 minutes away) is a special place filled with great music, good and shops. Getting AroundOne needs s 4 wheel drive (if weather is bad) or just a car with high clearance. A neighbor has a Prius and manages!

The SpaceA second floor apartment located in a turn-of-the-century restored miner home with a coffee shop on the first floor. Downstairs is where you go for breakfast and coffee to eat in the coffee shop or take back upstairs. Guest AccessThe entire upstairs, as well as patio tables around the property. Interaction with GuestsWe are very hands-off. The 1st floor coffee shop is always available during business hours for human interaction, but in your suite you have total privacy. The NeighborhoodMadrid is a turn-of-the-century coal mining company town. This town is dripping with history, as every structure is historic - no new development or construction. The shops on main street are 90% owner operated and showcase local talent, in every way. Getting AroundWith such great distances between Madrid and Santa Fe or Albuquerque, a car is recommended. That said, we have a free bus to and from Santa Fe that is in Madrid at 11:30 and 5:30 Mon - Fri. Other Things to NoteWe are a family owned business. Our drinking water is from a co-op town well, and while it won't hurt to drink, it doesn't taste very good, so we provide bottled drinking water for our guests.

The SpaceThis is a 1948 schoolbus that became my home for years, and is now set in a uniquely beautiful area of New Mexico. You can sit on the deck and enjoy the sunset, or cook up some hot food on the two ring burner inside the bus and spend a quiet evening reading. Or you can drop your stuff and head across the field and down into the valley to the west. Explore safely, bring water, boots and a flashlight. The bus is cleaned thoroughly but it's dusty here so it's not a good fit for the clean-freaks! There is now a briefcase style solar panel/ charger for your phone or camera. Just be careful with it and leave it in the bus when you're not around, otherwise all you need to do is open it up, prop it at an angle with the inbuilt arms, and plug in your car charger (Cigarette lighter plug). It's only 13 watts if you need to know! Guest Access In winter you'll need to be comfortable making fires in an old wood-stove, huddling under blankets and wearing as many layers as (URL HIDDEN) cold when the sun goes down. In summer expect to hide in the shade of the junipers, lay around until the sun goes down and wish you could cool off! Look up the local weather for the latest forecast for NM 87010. The bus comes with a wood stove for heat, a propane fire pit outside and a charcoal grill outside. There is a container of water for you, a cooler with breakfast odds and ends, cooking supplies, a propane two ring burner, coffee and teas. Pretty much everything you need. Outhouse, compost toilet style, an outdoor shower for summer guests, and no running water or electricity. Candles and an oil lamp. Interaction with GuestsMadrid is a unique funky artistic town so head down there for coffee in the mornings or a beer and burger later on. It's a great place. I'm generally around in the mornings if you have any questions otherwise I'll leave you to it as I'm a private person and keep to myself most of the time. You'll want to be self-sufficient, independent camper types to enjoy this place! I'm a novelist and you can buy copies of my locally set fiction through me or in Madrid. Just let me know if you're interested, thanks. The NeighborhoodThere are three neighbors close by but you can't see them much. We'd like to keep them unaffected as much as possible so no generators or music outside. Getting AroundThe road into Hillend is pretty rocky so you'll need a vehicle with higher clearance and good tires - not a low riding city sedan, okay? Subaru, SUVs, trucks do the best up here. Seriously - do not come up here in a Scion for example. And yes, motorbikes do great up here. I have a DR650 and I used to drive the roads on a (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) which was slow going on the rocks but did fine. Other Things to NoteThere has been a county-wide ban on all campfires. You could start a wild fire and burn the trees, animals and community around. It's not worth it. So there is a propane fire-pit that you can use! It's pretty good for sitting around at night with the stars above. Since you'll be staying at my homestead, I'd really appreciate some information as I'd like to know that this is a good fit us both. No high maintenance folks please, I'm trying to make sure we both enjoy the experience. I do not have phone/ internet 24/7 and so please be responsible and bring the directions and details which come on your itinerary page. Thanks! Repeat visitors get a discount so come check the place out and then think about coming back for longer next time.

    The SpaceMy sweet home is warm, peaceful and probably the cleanest home you'll find in Madrid. It's built out of all natural materials - adobe (mud), wood, brick and stone, and I also clean with mostly organic products. If you've ever stayed in an adobe home, you know that it just feels different... and is very unique to the mostly wood-framed village of Madrid. Out the windows you'll see the Ortiz Mountains, often snow-capped to the south, in the winter. The house sits atop a small hill just a few minutes' walk from downtown Madrid. You'll feel like you're totally off the grid and in the country - and yet Java Junction, the Mine Shaft Tavern, The Hollar restaurant, and Mama Lisa's No Pity Cafe are a few minutes' amble away. It's so quiet here you can literally hear lizards rustling through the leaves out your bedroom window. If you step out in the early morning or late afternoon, there's a good chance you'll hear Chloe and Abigail, the donkeys next door, braying for their meal. The main bedroom has the most comfortable queen bed you've probably ever slept in, and sliding glass doors that lead to directly to the stone-walled yard. There are mountain and sky views from the bed itself - and if you know what to look for, you can see the old turn-of-the-century stone sweat lodge on the back hill of my neighbor's property and a beautiful old Airstream in the distance. The guest room's comfy double bed sits below clarestory windows, where you can often see the moon circle by if you're patient and watch long enough. The guest room, like the main bedroom, has a desk in it. The kitchen is everyone's favorite room with its 1950s metal dental cabinets and countertops made from wood that was pulled from the gymnasium of Madrid's 1930s WPA-built schoolhouse. I bought the massive wood tables and chairs from a Mexican junk shop in East LA in the early 90s and they've only gotten cooler with time. I've also recently replaced by beautiful 1940s era stove (sniffle) with a brand new range that includes a nice griddle on top. The 1800s era claw foot tub and shower works perfectly and is beautiful! The toilet and tub are split into two separate bathrooms, which does make it feel like there are two bathrooms when people are in a rush and don't want to share a space. Have you heard about Madrid water? On rare occasions - usually during the summer monsoon season or after an extensive snow - the water can smell like sulfur. It happens after excessive precipitation pulls minerals down into our well water. While it's totally safe, it's not tasty or nice to the nose when this happens. As such, you'll always have a gallon of drinking water here for your use. If this happens to you during your stay, let me know and we can work out a discount that feels good to everyone. Guest AccessYou will have access to everything in the house except the back master closet, non-perishables in the pantry, and any drawers that are tied with ribbon. The guest closet will be all yours. You also have your own yard, which stretches out of the kitchen doors and out of the master bedroom door. This area is surrounded by a stone and adobe wall. It's very unlikely that you will see either of my awesome, long-term tenants next door - Daniel, who lives in the cabin, and Keith, who is in the casita - due to their units being separate from the house, and the reality that both are very quiet and respectful. Please respect their yard spaces and know that they will also respect yours. Interaction with GuestsI will be available by phone / text and my property manager and longtime local Shawn Hardy lives down the road and will also be available by phone, text, and if needed, in person. The NeighborhoodWhere else can find more than 20 art galleries, 3 great restaurants, 2 bars, and a coffee shop in a town of less than 500 people? Madrid is great! Check out music at the Mine Shaft Tavern and the Hollar, happening several nights and afternoons a week (during the warm months especially). And you can beat brunch at Ghost Town Kitchen / No Pity Cafe. The menu is extensive and Mama Lisa finds the freshest most unique ingredients around. you won't believe there's so much quality food in this little town!! Other Things to NotePlease don't use the washer unless you are here for a 3+ day stay due to our limited water resources in Madrid. If you do use the washer, you'll have to hang dry your clothes.

    The SpaceExperience what it's like to wake up in the heart of Madrid, NM, the unincorporated mining town. Make coffee and drink it on the deck overlooking the Main St. or walk down the street to Java Joe's where you may run into the new friends you met listening to music at The Hollar or The Mine Shaft. The bones of this Victorian style house were brought in from Kansas by train in the late 1800's. The gigantic antique stove sets the tone for a trip back in history. Madrid General is a store that operates in the gallery adjacent to the Inn. We sell dry goods such as wool blankets, cow hides, bath salts and handmade artisan boxes and dog beds. The living room downstairs is full of books both old and new and is open to light foot traffic during the day between 11:00AM and 6:00PM. The Inn at Madrid General will put you in the center of the Madrid experience while also providing cozy comfort and privacy. Extra beds can be provided for larger groups. (LGBTQ friendly) Guest AccessMadrid General store is attached to the Inn and there is no access to that space when closed. The living room is open to light foot traffic between 11:00 to 6:00 PM during the day and is a reading room/book store. Hours will vary greatly but will not be later or earlier than this. The upstairs is completely private. Interaction with GuestsI'll be around for anything you need. The Neighborhood(URL HIDDEN) Getting AroundThere are buses three times a day to and from Santa Fe. Other Things to NoteThe water throughout Madrid has high sulphur content. We provide drinking water. You will notice the odor whenever you run the water from faucets etc..

    The SpaceThe views are incredible and you can spend hours watching the sunrise and sunset and still want more. Just because I had someone show up without a tent - a little reminder - this is a camp SITE! Bring your own camping gear!!! I provide the space, you provide the rest! You bring your own camping gear and simply enjoy the land and community, okay? Guest AccessYou can explore the valley and hills around, some twenty acres untouched. Just be careful and take water and phone or a whistle in case you need help. Interaction with GuestsI share the land but work a lot but you can drop by during the daylight hours if you see me home or if you have questions about Madrid and places to visit. My dogs will probably see more of you than I will though ~ They like the company. And treats. They like treats. So does the cat. And the chickens! The NeighborhoodCheck out Madrid for the galleries, coffee shop, and restaurants/ taverns. It's a unique funky artist town and only three miles away. Getting AroundThere is no public transport to my place. There is a bus from Madrid to Santa Fe. Other Things to NoteCome on up and set up your tent, cook, hang out, read, walk and daydream...unwind.

    The SpaceLife on the hill is so incredibly quiet you can hear your watch. The sunrise, the sunsets, the wind and the animals make this a unique place to visit. The home comes with two chickens. If you're here for more than a couple of nights, you'll be responsible for feeding and watering the girls. It's easy but you do have to promise to take care of them, ok? They add to the sound effects and love to follow me around the yard. It's winter and that means cold at night. Be prepared! I give you a stack of wood, enough to make a fire in the evening and one in the morning. Let the fire go out at night, you might as well then start it up in the morning frost. If you want more wood, its $5 a stack. This is a unique work in progress, I call it my art project. I've written five books here so far, all published. The space and quiet allow me to drop the worries of living in this world. I can daydream. Nap, create, eat, explore, whatever you wish, you can enjoy here at Hillend. The kitchen is simple but fully equipped. The solar system will give you lights, charge phones and laptops but is too small for stereos and TVs etc. There is a compost toilet and hot and cold water in the bathroom. The woodstove heats the home easily in winter. Please respect that this is my home and treat it with love. No smoking in or near the home. If you do you could lose the deposit. Thank you. Guest AccessThere is a full but simple galley style kitchen with fridge, propane four ring oven/stove etc. Most of your kitchen cooking needs can be met here. The most beautiful sunrises fill the kitchen early every day so sit in bed and look into the kitchen and out the windows upon the hills with a coffee in hand. Interaction with GuestsI can meet you and show you around. I might be staying in the bus or in Madrid itself. I can give you ideas of places to explore, galleries to visit and places to eat and drink. The NeighborhoodCheck out Madrid for the galleries, food, coffee, restaurants, and museum. It's a unique coal miner's town that for years was empty after the company moved on. Since then it's been reclaimed and rebuilt. Getting AroundThere is a local free bus to Santa Fe South Mall but I don't know the details. Other Things to NotePlease note that this has been my home with various cats and dogs. If you are allergic to animals, do not come here! It is not for anyone who needs all to be pristine, it's a home with pets in a dusty climate. If you're here for more than a couple of nights, you'll need to empty your compost toilet into the compost pile outside, it's not bad just a responsibility for you to be aware of. Check out the other listings at this property for more specific details about life off grid. There might be something different that suits you better. Camping? A school bus? Who knows?! Have a look and ask questions.

    The SpaceThis room is a beautiful, sunny and simple space, located at the end of a private hallway just off the main entrance to house. It has two twin beds, making it a perfect room for traveling companions, a parent with a child, or the kid room when rented with the queen room (see other listing). The house is cozy and bright, and has great outdoors space. A private deck overlooks Santa Fe county greenspace, which affords a nice sense of privacy in this home located right in town. NOTE: THESE BEDS ARE NOT ABLE TO BE PUSHED TOGETHER. The frames do not allow movement of the furniture. If you are seeking a larger bed for two people, please inquire about the king room for rent. Guest AccessAs a guest, you will have access to the entire home, minus the other bedrooms (the other Airbnb rental room and the bedroom of the caretaker, Teresa.) Please make yourself at home! Interaction with GuestsOur caretaker, Teresa, is a friendly, mindful local who is available if you need her. Otherwise she will stay out of your hair and let you be. SHe's a pretty busy gal who enjoys being out the house. Your room is set off down a private hallway, so you should feel like you have your own space. The bathroom for the house is shared, so this is one area you will run into Teresa if she is home, or the other Airbnb guest if there is one. There is an additional room for rent (queen bed) off the main dining area. The NeighborhoodMadrid is one of the oldest coal mining towns in the southwest. Now it is a funky little village of artists, musicians, old hippies, gallery owners and folks cultivating a life of sustainable living off-grid. Its a small community, with rich history, and all the quirks of small-town life. During certain months, tourism becomes a main source of traffic and revenue for the town, and the vibe can get lively. Weekend festivals, seasonal parades, gallery openings, creative theater productions, weekly music schedules, and a couple good restaurants create a rich social environment in an otherwise quiet town. Great hiking right here in town, or just a few miles away in Cerillos Hills State Park. Madrid is definitely funky--- wobbly roads, odd displays of art and creativity, dogs wandering around loosely all over town... its a unique and charming place. Captures the soul of many, especially those with a free spirit and love for the spontaneous, expressive energy. Getting AroundThe house is within walking distance to the main street in town (about a 2-4 min walk). You can walk the entire village, from one end to the other exploring the shops, galleries, and local life. If you want to explore outside of Madrid, a car is best. Santa Fe is an easy 25-30 min drive north, and Albuquerue is 45-60 minutes south, both via Hwy 14, the "Turquoise Trail" scenic route between the two cities. There is a new bus service that started last year, offering transport to/from Santa Fe on a daily basis, but the schedule is light and the drop-off locations aren't ideal for tourists. But, it does exist. There is an airport shuttle from ABQ airport that drops off in Santa Fe, at the same location where this local busline picks up- so in theory, you could arrive here without a car. So long as you are patient with the bus schedule and coordinate the shuttle with it. Other Things to NoteMadrid water is known for its quirky, sulfur smell. While it is verified safe to drink, most locals just drink bottled water and use the Madrid water for showering, cooking and cleaning. Even boiling for coffee, tea, or pasta water is fine. There is drinking water provided for guests in the kitchen. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS LITTLE TO NO CELL SERVICE IN THE TOWN OF MADRID. PLEASE BE SURE TO RECORD ALL TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND CHECK IN INFO BEFORE YOU TRAVEL. (Wifi is available for guests once you check into the house).

Its a small community, with rich history, and all the quirks of small-town life. During certain months, tourism becomes a main source of traffic and revenue for the town, and the vibe can get lively. Weekend festivals, seasonal parades, gallery openings, creative theater productions, weekly music schedules, and a couple good restaurants create a rich social environment in an otherwise quiet town. Great hiking right here in town, or just a few miles away in Cerillos Hills State Park. Madrid is definitely funky--- wobbly roads, odd displays of art and creativity, dogs wandering around loosely all over town... its a unique and charming place. Captures the soul of many, especially those with a free spirit and love for the spontaneous, expressive energy. Getting AroundThe house is within walking distance to the main street in town (about a 2-4 min walk). You can walk the entire village, from one end to the other exploring the shops, galleries, and local life. If you want to explore outside of Madrid, a car is best. Santa Fe is an easy 25-30 min drive north, and Albuquerue is 45-60 minutes south, both via Hwy 14, the "Turquoise Trail" scenic route between the two cities. There is a new bus service that started last year, offering transport to/from Santa Fe on a daily basis, but the schedule is light and the drop-off locations aren't ideal for tourists. But, it does exist. There is an airport shuttle from ABQ airport that drops off in Santa Fe, at the same location where this local busline picks up- so in theory, you could arrive here without a car. So long as you are patient with the bus schedule and coordinate the shuttle with it. Other Things to NoteMadrid water is known for its quirky, sulfur smell. While it is verified safe to drink, most locals just drink bottled water and use the Madrid water for showering, cooking and cleaning. Even boiling for coffee, tea, or pasta water is fine. There is drinking water provided for guests in the kitchen. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS LITTLE TO NO CELL SERVICE IN THE TOWN OF MADRID. PLEASE BE SURE TO RECORD ALL TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND CHECK IN INFO BEFORE YOU TRAVEL. (Wifi is available for guests once you check into the house).

    The SpaceThis really is a sweet spot if you are currently on the road and need a break from car camping or motels. You'll be responsible for bringing everything you'll need, that means bedding, cooking stuff, food. I have rain catchment water for you, a compost toilet, a futon bed to pull out for two, and some firewood to start you off. It's a dusty world up here but so worth it for a good night's sleep on a bluff in New Mexico. See my other listings for more photos and stories about the place. Interaction with GuestsI work from home as a writer so I'll meet you here or in Madrid if you like. Renting out these places helps me focus on my novels so thank you. My pets will happily beg from you though, dogs cats and chickens roam the property. The NeighborhoodCheck out my other listings for more info. Getting AroundLots of parking, lots of views. Other Things to NoteThis is bare bones cabin. You really do need to bring the camping gear and bedding...the road is one mile of dirt, fairly rough right now after the rains. Drive slowly and carefully. We all do it so it's not an issue unless you're in a Scion! The outhouse is a compost toilet, so you do what you do as you enjoy the view and then cover everything with sawdust. The next person wants to only see sawdust, right? It's okay, clean and doesn't smell but it's primitive as they say!
    Cabin
    1br Cabin
      Welcome to my 600 square foot studio cabin in the hills outside of Madrid, NM. We have rain catchment, solar power, woodstoves, propane water heater, and compost toilet, all home-made over the last eight years. It's an art project, not a finished product so if you like seeing a creative mind in action, then come stay here. If you need straight lines, pristine floors then a dusty home like mine isn't a good fit. The home sits on twenty acres at the end of a mile of dirt road. It's rocky but since my seventy-year old neighbors drive it in a sedan, I think you'll be okay! Unplug, unwind, watch birds, make fires, explore Madrid, drive to Santa Fe, and come home for another fire. My home is best appreciated for a week at a time, if not more. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

      The SpaceThis room is a beautiful, sunny and simple space, located off the main living area in the house. It has a very comfortable/soft queen bed, making it a perfect room for solo travelers, couples, a parent with a child, or the parents room when rented with the twin room (see other listing). The house is cozy and bright, and has great outdoors space. A private deck overlooks Santa Fe county greenspace, which affords a nice sense of privacy in this home located right in town. Guest AccessAs a guest, you will have access to the entire home, minus the other bedrooms (the other Airbnb rental room and the bedroom of the caretaker, Teresa.) Please make yourself at home! Interaction with GuestsOur caretaker, Teresa, is a friendly, mindful local who is available if you need her. Otherwise she will stay out of your hair and let you be. She's a pretty busy gal who enjoys being out the house. Her room is located at the end of the hall past the laundry. Your room is set off the main living area, right next to the bathroom and kitchen, so you should feel like you have your own space. The bathroom for the house is shared, so this is one area you will run into Teresa if she is home, or the other Airbnb guest if there is one. There is an additional room for rent (twin room, 2 beds) on the other end of the house. The NeighborhoodMadrid is one of the oldest coal mining towns in the southwest.
