Welcome to The Land of Enchantment, made famous by artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The Casita del Lago sits in this enchanted area, so beautiful and undisturbed that we couldn’t even believe we were allowed to build a home here. Our home is located on one of the most enviable addresses in New Mexico - on the shore above Abiquiu Lake, where the Chama River joins Abiquiu Lake. We sit on 22 acreas of lakefront property. We are located ten miles outside the village of Abiquiú. Ghost Ranch, Plaza Blanca, Echo Ampitheater, Carson National Forest, Ra Paulette Cave Tour and Christ Monastery in the Dessert are in the surrounding area.
Why stay on Abiquiu Lake? It's quite simple: if you stay anywhere else, you will miss out on some of the most beautiful views in Northern New Mexico!
Renting a home on Abiquiu Lake not only gives you lake access, but it provides you with views that will leave you breathless. From our side of the lake you have views of the ancient red rocks, the quiet and beautiful blue waters of Abiquiu Lake, the Chama River, Cerro Pedernal and Carson National Forest. Best of all, although we are located on lakefront property, we do not have mosquitos or other annoying insects (no more so than anyplace in the state in general).
Abiquiu is a wonderful village but there is so much more to see. We are conveniently located near all the major area attractions - Ghost Ranch, Echo Amphitheater, Plaza Blanca, Monastery of Christ in the Desert, and beautiful Abiquiu Lake. Oh, and yes - we do have cell phone coverage and cable TV for those moments when you decide to reconnect to reality.
The Casita del Lago is located in the exclusive private community of Lakefronts at Abiquiu at the northern tip of Abiquiu, built into the rocks overlooking Abiquiu Lake. This 22 acre private home is an oasis, home to magnificent views, colorful mountain rocks, lake and river front property, national forests, and an absence of noise and light polution. The Casita property is next door to Ghost Ranch land (undeveloped and beautiful) - that land can also be hiked on.
We are located 70 minutes from Santa Fe and 90 minutes from Taos. The two closest airports in the area are the Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ; 124 miles, allow 2.5 hours) and the Santa Fe Municipal Airport (SAF; 67 miles). ABQ has direct daily service from major cities in the U.S. and Europe.
