We spent two nights here last week so as to spend a couple of days kayaking and fishing on the lake, and enjoyed our stay. Yes, it's buggy this time of year, but like another reviewer we were glad they didn't spray. Yet, I would have strongly supported the use of a little ant bait around the property! In spite of this, our casita stayed bug-free, with help from an overpriced can of Deep Woods Off bought at Bode's.
When I made the reservation a week prior, I was thrilled to get a 25% discount offered, so booked an upgraded room that supposedly had a private patio. The unit was sort of motel-like, but ok, but the private patio was a few pieces of flagstone with no furniture. When we checked in they were offering the same room for around $60. less, and would not allow us the lower rate since we were already within the 24 hour cancel period. Supposedly they had a large group cancel last minute, so the decision to offer this special was a last-minute deal. However, when I spoke with the manager, she upgraded us to a one bedroom casita, so we were pretty satisfied. Yet, a person walking in off the street would have still gotten a better deal. That said, I don't recommend this if a reader is determined to stay here, as they often fill up with large tour groups coming to see the O'Keefe home.
Since our upgraded casita had a kitchen, we were sorry to have not brought more food. Yet, the restaurant was good, and surprisingly affordable for the locale.
Previous reviewer commented about the lack of good housekeeping. Our place was pretty good, but could have benefited from a deep cleaning. This was particularly true on our screened-in porch which looked like it hadn't been cleaned all season.
We will be back. Kayaking at Abiguiu Lake was spectacular, and this sure beats camping! Plus it's really the only place to stay between Espanola and Chama.
