About this listing
We are backed-up to the well known Guadalupe Trail and close to the balloon fiesta park. We have animals and have a rustic farm with clean accommodations. We grow organic fruit and vegies. We are a family of three to four.
Queen size bed with large window over looking the back yard. Clean hardwood floors and hot water heating.
The Llama del Sol ranch is a quiet place in beautiful North Valley area of Albuquerque (Village of Alameda) has a clean room for 1 or 2 (queen sized bed). It has a semi-private entry, private bathroom, large bay window overlooking our large yard. Conveniently located on Guadalupe Trail for rear access.
Our house is 3500 sq. ft. We have 0.75 acres with another adjacent 1.5 acres for the llamas. We have a pleasant courtyard and back porch to relax. The room we rent is about 215 sq ft plus an attached private bath.
We are less than 2 miles from the rail runner station that goes to Santa Fe; 2 miles to the International Balloon Fiesta Park, less than 2 miles to the Rio Grande, less than one mile to the Alameda Community Center, and we are right on the acequia for a nice walk on the ditch. We have fabulous hiking or biking trails.
We have llamas that can be rented for a fun adventure or just enjoy them at home. Google llamas in Albuquerque or Llamas del Sol for rental info. If you stay with us the llama meet-and-greet is free.
We have llamas, a cat, two dogs, and two sons at home. Our dogs who are friendly and sleep in our room at night and hang in the yard by day. They also roam the house (except for guest room). They will greet you with a lot of barking but are friendly - even the big one. This is a farm so it is a little funky but comfortable - not hotel-like conditions.
As we do a lot of building, there are various building materials around the workshop and in the yard emphasizing a farm atmosphere with material re-use and recycle attitude.
Kitchen, living room, courtyard guest access. You are welcome to climb up our tree house if you are brave enough.
Interaction with Guests
We interact as much or as little as you like. We love to meet new people and chat over coffee in the mornings if you have the time.
We have a great walking trail right out the back door. We are very close to the river and the Balloon Fiesta Park. We are in Alameda where some of the best Mexican food Restaurants are. We have a binder in your room of local info.
A car is probably necessary for the traveler. A local could get by on the bus system but it is not running as often on the weekends.
