Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Jemez Springs - The Pines

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom Cabin With Mountain Views.

Relax at this quaint, but spacious, 1950's log cabin hidden in the Ponderosa pines at nearly 8,000 feet.

You won't want to leave the front porch with its view of Redondo Peak and regular visits from hummingbirds. Or relax in the hammock which hangs between two trees and read a book. It can't get more relaxing than that.

Four bedrooms sleep eight comfortably. But which bedroom will you choose? The Log Cabin Room? Flower room? Bird room? or Western room? They are all decorated just for you.

Within a mile of trout fishing, hiking, a restaurant and convenience store, and only a few miles from Jemez Falls, Spence Hot Springs, Soda Dam, Fenton Lake and the town of Jemez Springs. So much to do, but you may just want to sit on the porch and never leave.

This newly updated cabin is stocked with Internet, games, puzzles, toys, record player and records, iPod dock, and flat screen TV with 150 DVDs to watch. A land line phone with unlimited calls within the US is available since cell phone service is very sketchy in the area (hope you remember how to use a rotary dial phone).

Property includes a Propane grill, microwave, refrigerator and two fireplaces - one electric and one wood burning. Also a washer and dryer are available for use, but there is no dishwasher (remember, it is a 1950's cabin.)

Snuggled at the end of a neighborhood, we ask that you respect our neighbors by keeping noise down.

A perfect place for family reunions, group gatherings or just for one couple to get away from it all and listen to the pines. Oh, did I mention the pine fragrance is intoxicating?

You may see elk or deer as they mosey through the area. But, don't leave food outside or the bears may make a visit too.

About Martha Landes

I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, graduated from OU, then was a public school music teacher for 20+ years. We moved to South Dakota for 5 years where my husband was a Dean at South Dakota State Unversity and I worked as a community coach, before landing permanently in Rio Rancho, NM in 2011.

As a child, my family had a cabin in Missouri that we escaped to on a regular basis. It has always a place to rejuvenate. Now that I'm a New Mexico resident, I can't get back to Missouri very often, and missed having that relaxing getaway.

So, we bought this charming log cabin in the Jemez Mountains to do just that. After fixing it up, we decided it needed to be shared with others and are renting The Pines out during the times we aren't enjoying the amazing Jemez Moutains ourselves.

I currently own a photography business, a music publishing company and recently finished my first novel.

We hope you will consider this relaxing place as much as we do.

Martha Landes purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Martha Landes chose Jemez Springs

The Pines is unique in that it feels secluded, but is fairly close to others and only 50 beautiful miles from the hub of Rio Rancho and Bernalillo. Only 60 miles from Albuquerque and 40 miles from Los Alamos.

The Jemez mountains have so many amazing places to explore. I could go out daily and do just that.

This particular property is in the perfect location - At 7,850 feet elevation, it's 15 degrees cooler than in Albuquerque with no traffic noise, and green of trees surrounding the property.

What makes this cabin unique

The cozy feel of 'Grandma's house' is what hit me when I first saw this place - with the charming 1950's bones. After updating the property, it is still reminiscent of the old days, but with most of the modern conveniences we are accustomed to now.

We love sitting on the front porch with a drink in hand visiting and watching nature. Or lie on the hammock beneath the tall pines as they sway. It's very therapeutic.

Not remote in a residdental area.

  • 3 out of 5
Exciting get away, surprised to learn this is not a remote cabin but located in a active residential area full of homes.Barking dogs and early poultry. Neighbors homes are just out of sight in the photos on this web site.Upon our arrival there was no power and the lights out made this a problem.Could have ended our weekend. Peace and quiet are the norm for this get away. If you are planning on staying at this little cabin and relaxing on the porch, this is just for you. A point to remember is that there is no road maintenance and access will be difficult if there is mud or snow. Owners do not live local and are at least an hour and a half away. Please call them if you have any problems they will be helpful.Cell phones don't work. Or you can knock on any door since there are many full time residents in the area. I am sure they will help too.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.
Unfortunately, in the mountains, trees can fall on power lines causing outages in the area. We have purchased a cookstove, lantern and additional flashlights in case it happens again and of course the wood burning fireplace can always keep the cabin warm.
As noted in my listing, cell phone coverage is limited, but we do have a landline for use by renters.
I have revised the listing to mention the cabin is situated at the end of a neighborhood, in case people don't notice other references to neighbors.
To clarify, we live only one hour away. If we are not available to come for some reason, we will find someone nearby to help if anything is needed.
As far as road maintenance is concerned, we have not had any problems. However if you plan to go anywhere off of Hwy 4 or Hwy 126 in Winter, I'd recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle.
Thank you! Hope to see you back again soon.

Room mate reunion

The cabin was very comfortable and well equipped. The directions were very clear and we had no trouble finding it. The key box was not functioning, but a call to the owner solved the problem.

Best Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
When we found this little cabin on VRBO we liked it. When we got her we fell in love with this little gem.
Great location, great view, great look.
This will become a regular stay for us.
Everything you need is here. Very well stocked.
Just bring your food and then unwind.
Love this place.
The owners are fantastic to deal with.

Relaxing log cabin visit

  • 5 out of 5
We had a delightful and relaxing visit to this log cabin in the Jemez Mts.
We loved the comfy living room and choice of lovely bedrooms. We spent most of our time chilling on the porch, enjoying the view of the mountains, and watching the hummingbirds.
My husband especially enjoyed trout fishing in the Jemez River, less than a mile from the cabin, near Amanda's Store in La Cueva, and I loved the trout dinner he caught and cooked.

Owner's Response: Kathy, I'm happy you and your husband enjoyed your visit to The Pines. We hope to see you on a return trip. I'm sure there will be more trout waiting for him.

Incredibly beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 out of 5
This place is an absolute must for a relaxing getaway! Not only is the cabin absolutely lovely, but the area is perfect and has so much to offer. It has a gorgeous view of the Redondo Peak directly outside the back porch, where we ate most meals. It rained quite a bit during our visit (the rain is not typical but the DVD collection helped a lot), but there were enough breaks to get out and explore the mountains. The hot springs are a must and less than 2 miles away. I think families and groups of all ages would thoroughly enjoy a relaxing stay. I'm already planning my next stay at The Pines!!
