Nur ein paar Meilen in der Luftlinie von Abiquiu ist Cañones ein unberührtes Dorf am Ende einer Landstraße und an der Mündung einer tiefen Schlucht.
Etwas mehr als 2 Meilen in die Schlucht der Canoncito Seco, ein Quellwasser gespeisten Bach (nicht trocken überhaupt) steigt von hoch oben auf Polvadera Peak und fließt in Cañones Creek. Es ist unser Canoncito Creek Retreat ein bequemste Ort, um große Teile der Santa Fe National Forest zu erkunden. Oder einfach nur zum Ausruhen und Entspannen.
Das Retreat ist ein Refugium in der Schlucht von imposanten Tafelbergen umgeben tief. Kein Verkehr zu hören oder zu sehen ist, Privatsphäre und Ruhe sind absolut.
Große Herden von Elche und wilde Truthähne auf wenigen Routen erkundet erfüllt werden. Oder noch besser, können Sie Ihre eigenen Weg durch diese spektakuläre Wildnis geschnitten. Abiquiu See, der Chama River Wilderness, sind Ghost Ranch nur einen kurzen (aber sensationell) entfernt. Fische im Bach, die Suche nach wilden Pilzen, sammle bunte Steine.
The place is great to stay. It is spacious and beautiful. We had a problem with the water and the caretaker came right out to fix it. He was very nice and made sure everything was working correctly. The only reasons I didn't give it 4 stars was lack of a king size bed (we are spoiled on that, so it shouldn't be a problem for most), and the number of cows right around the house. I'm not sure if there was a fence down or not, but we had a number of cattle in the yard throughout the day. They bring a certain rustic odor and flies. That said, we would certainly consider staying there again.
Our active family of 5 had the pleasure of enjoying this house over Christmas break 2016. The grounds are absolutely stunning. While you will not find top of the line appliances here, we did find everything we needed, and more. There are jazz CDs, a few great movies, very comfortable beds with plenty of linens, spacious balconies, sensible, beautiful, low maintenance floors... The home has many well-loved and thoughtful, organic touches that made us feel like we were staying in our very own second home, if that makes sense. Design aesthetes will enjoy this rental. The owner and caretakers were responsive, knowledgeable, and gracious. One of our most enjoyable, easy rental vacation property experiences, ever. We were very pleased to be able to take our dogs with us. Thank you so very, very much for sharing your home.
Its a great location and the hiking right off the property is amazing. You can literally hike all day and not see a single soul. The views from prominence that you can see right out the front windows of the home make the sometimes difficult hike up to it completely worth it. In general, you will not be disturbed while on the property. It is completely isolated from any other homes. It is located a good 15 minute up a narrow dirt road and another 10 min from the last real settlement (the small village where the caretakers reside). So if you love being surrounded by nature and not having any ambiance noise of the outside world, this is the perfect location. The silence is nearly definitely and it was a wonderful respite for us.
The Abiquiu/Canones area in general is very quiet and great for nature lovers. There are some great local hikes and lots of just pure nature to enjoy. The general store in Abiquiu also has all the necessities and this house is well sited for day trips into Santa Fe as well if you miss cities for some reason.
That all said, the house definitely needs a little help. The front steps were very creaky, there were a couple broken screen doors for the doorways to the decks and there were a fairly large amount of flies in the home for some strange reason. None of the informational pamphlets, area magazines, etc were more recent than 2013, there were no contour maps for hiking off the property despite it being mentioned in the informational binder left on the counter. In addition, the directions provided were a bit sketchy. They specify a Y in the road and to take the left branch and this will be the driveway to the property. The split, unfortunately is not obvious at all and it doesnt really even look like a road as it is that eroded and rough. Property access is definitely limited to high clearance all-wheel drive vehicles. Even being told that before hand, we were still surprised at just how rough the driveway was in places so that is definitely something to be aware of when renting the property. These are just things to be aware of if you consider the property. It definitely has a lived in feel at this point and could probably use a little bit of TLC to refresh it.
It was a decent rental for us, but not a great one. We probably wouldn't rent it again if coming back to Abiquiu but we do not regret using it as a base to explore the area for 4 days.
This is a very special place- peaceful and quiet. It is off the beaten path and perfect if you want to hike and explore the beautiful forest nearby. The house has spectacular views and is perfectly kept. It is a gem!
We have stayed at many VRBO's but this place sets itself apart. It may not be the easiest drive, but it is well worth the bumps and turns of the dusty, dirt road. We love rural northern NM, so were all set to like what we found, and what we found was an incredibly well stocked kitchen and home. We loved the little touches as well as the large strokes of the canvas. We felt as though we were sharing this home with someone who loved sharing it with us. All we could talk about was coming back in different seasons to experience Canoncito Creek in its full richness of the colorful hills and creeks, skies and rocky canyons. If you love rural New Mexico for its magical connection to its history, past and present, for its kind and strong, hardworking people, you may find yourself falling in love with this place. We are avid hikers and nature lovers, so this is a gold mine where a hike is available out every door into the national forest, and the chances of running into humans is remote. What you will see and hear and smell in these canyons is remarkable.
The home itself is pure fabulousness with Saltillo tiles, "rustic" hardwood floors, heavy wood beamed ceilings, and comfortable beds. Even the towels were luscious. There are 6-10 foot Windows overlooking the southeast to thick woodlands in front of a jutting mountain. There are three levels of large, sturdy decks which overlook similar views. This home was clearly designed for comfort, beauty, and peace. The architect fit a perfect celebration of NM into a rural retreat worthy of praise. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us. You made our anniversary memorable in every way.
