Explore Northern New Mexico from this bright, new casita in South Ojo Caliente. Built in 2012 and beautifully furnished, this one bedroom, one bath casita is in the perfect location to explore the surrounding area. The famed Ojo Caliente Hot Springs and Spa is just 15 minutes up the road. Explore the galleries and museums in Santa Fe (40 minutes to the south), Ghost Ranch (35 minutes north), or Taos (an hour north). The casita is in an ideal location for taking in the art studio tours every fall: the Abiquiu, El Rito, Dixon, and High Road to Taos tours are all close by. The scenic Cumbres and Toltec steam railway makes a nice day trip during the warmer months. Visit the nearby ancient Anasazi ruins at Poshuouinge (15 mins), Puye Cliffs (25 mins), Tsankawi (30 mins) or Bandelier National Monument (~45 mins). Geology buffs and nature lovers will want to visit the Valles Caldera, about an hour away. The casita is about 35 minutes from Los Alamos National Lab, and could serve as a home-away-from home for visitors to the Lab.
There is a beautiful view of the Jemez mountains from the back of the casita, which is located on a private, gated, unpaved road. There are a few other homes on our road but the casita is situated in a way that provides privacy--particularly from the back patio/view area.
