Your retreat from it all! Enjoy the tranquil sanctuary of our hidden valley on the Pecos River. A beautiful 45 minute drive from Santa Fe and only 20 minutes from the historic railroad town of Las Vegas, New Mexico.
Take time out to write, paint, sing, meditate ... spend time by the river, visit with our horses. Wi-fi free (meaning no wi-fi) so you can deeply rest and rejuvenate!
Gated access and parking next to studio.
My husband and I created the 'studio' from an old adobe cow shed seventeen years ago when we moved on to the property. We fell in love with this tranquil hidden valley as soon as we crested the hill and saw its beauty with the back-drop of Glorietta Mesa, the largest mesa in North America.
The wooden plank floors are all original and we put the spiral staircase up through the hole in the ceiling where the hay used to be pushed down to the cows. A new roof with skylights creates a welcoming sleeping space and the super comfortable queen size bed and two futons allow up to three people to stay.
The thick adobe walls and shading from the big 'grandmother' cottonwood tree keep the house cool in the summer. Base board heat and the option of an antique wood cooking stove keeps things very cozy in the winter.
We added the 'atrium', which also helps keep the house warm in winter and is a lovely place to sit in the early mornings and evenings during the summer.
There is only a minimal grocery store close by and no restaurant closer than Las Vegas, so you will need to bring your groceries. We provide all organic breakfast sundries, local organic farm eggs, coffee and tea and plenty of cookware and utensils. Local bio-dynamic farm goat milk is also available by request.

We are available most of the time if you need help with something and are happy to point you to places to go in the area like the historic Pecos Valley National Monument and Villa Nueva State Park, which has a beautiful hiking trail and fishing in the Pecos River.
If you want more activity, you could go to the hot springs at the United World College in Las Vegas and then visit the gorgeous Dwan Light Sanctuary and have a romantic dinner at the newly renovated historic Plaza Hotel. For Longmire fans, visit Sheriff Longmire's office on the Plaza and then mosey over to JC's New York Pizza and shoot some pool or go bowling!
For outdoor adventure go visit the alpaca's at Victory Ranch, take a Vision Quest horseback ride at the Spirit Ranch or climb Hermit's Peak.
