“Inspirational, Restorative, Amazing Place”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I lived in this astoundingly beautiful home for two months. I cannot imagine that there is a more perfect place to experience the beauty of New Mexico's high desert. Abiquiu Lake, Cerro Pedernal and Ghost Ranch provide incredibly beautiful landscapes and this home puts you right in the midst of that beauty from every room in the house. If you are like me, you will catch your breath every morning as you get your first view of your surroundings from the floor to ceiling windows. You can sit with a beverage on the portal in the afternoon and watch the light change on the red rocks. You can be enveloped by quiet broken only by the lapping of Abiquiu Lake on the shore below you. You can get lost in the vastness of the sky, day or night. This would be enough if the living quarters were only mediocre. But they are exceptional. Comfortable beds with high quality linens. A well-equipped kitchen. Beautiful carved doors and bath tiles. Hot tub. A ultra-responsive owner who clearly wants your stay to be the best. If you get a chance to go to Abiquiu, stay in this home. You will not be sorry and I expect you will remember your stay there fondly for a very long time.

“Still think about this magical place”
Reviewed January 13, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The Casita was comfortable for my family of 4 the moment we walked in. The views are quintessential New Mexico - mountains, a canyon, hills, a lake - very inspiring. We cooked all of our meals in the well equipped kitchen. We went on many wonderful day trips to Ghost Ranch, Bandolier, Chimayo, Taos, Ojo Caliente, and while the house is remote (which is what we loved about it), it was the perfect home base for us to explore northern New Mexico. The owners seem like lovely people, and were very helpful. The hot tub was not working, and they tried to fix it for us while we were there. I would love to return someday!

We hope you will return again in the future and we will give you a credit for the inconvenience with the hot tub. Abiquiu has a way of calling us all back again!!!

“A piece of Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed December 4, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My wife and I just returned from a two-week stay at Casita del Lago. It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken. It is a beautiful home in one of the most splendid locations in the country -- New Mexico. Absolutely wonderful. The owners are most gracious and the casita is marvelous. We plan to return soon.

“Beautiful Casita...Stunning Scenery”
Reviewed September 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casita del Lago!! The Casita and surrounding area were well described on the website. The scenery is beyond incredible. The large windows in the great room captured 180 degrees of “beautifulness” and upon stepping outside, you were surrounded by 360 degrees of gorgeous multicolored mountains/mesas . We saw double rainbows on several occasions! We have stayed in many VRBO homes over the years; and the owners of this Casita far surpassed our past experiences in terms of the quality & quantity of information provided. They were also very timely in responding to our questions which was so helpful in preparing for our stay. We would highly recommend going on the special tour of the Georgia O’Keeffe home & studio in Abiquiu, as well as taking a narrow gauge railroad day trip from Chama - be sure and splurge to ride in the Parlor Car! We have already recommended the Casita to friends. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
