Just a few miles as the crow flies from Abiquiu, Cañones is an untouched hamlet at the end of a county road and at the mouth of a deep canyon.
Just over two miles into the canyon the Cañoncito Seco, a spring-fed creek (not dry at all) descends from high up on Polvadera Peak and flows into Cañones Creek. There, our Cañoncito Creek Retreat is a most comfortable location from which to explore large parts of Santa Fe National Forest. Or just to rest and relax.
The Retreat is a hideaway deep in the canyon surrounded by impressive mesas. No traffic can be heard or seen, privacy and peace are absolute.
Large herds of elk and wild turkey can be met on the few explored trails. Or even better, you cut your own trail through this spectacular wilderness. Abiquiu Lake, the Chama River Wilderness, Ghost Ranch are just a short (but sensational) drive away. Fish in the creek, search for wild mushrooms, collect colorful stones.
This is a very special place- peaceful and quiet. It is off the beaten path and perfect if you want to hike and explore the beautiful forest nearby. The house has spectacular views and is perfectly kept. It is a gem!
We have stayed at many VRBO's but this place sets itself apart. It may not be the easiest drive, but it is well worth the bumps and turns of the dusty, dirt road. We love rural northern NM, so were all set to like what we found, and what we found was an incredibly well stocked kitchen and home. We loved the little touches as well as the large strokes of the canvas. We felt as though we were sharing this home with someone who loved sharing it with us. All we could talk about was coming back in different seasons to experience Canoncito Creek in its full richness of the colorful hills and creeks, skies and rocky canyons. If you love rural New Mexico for its magical connection to its history, past and present, for its kind and strong, hardworking people, you may find yourself falling in love with this place. We are avid hikers and nature lovers, so this is a gold mine where a hike is available out every door into the national forest, and the chances of running into humans is remote. What you will see and hear and smell in these canyons is remarkable.
The home itself is pure fabulousness with Saltillo tiles, "rustic" hardwood floors, heavy wood beamed ceilings, and comfortable beds. Even the towels were luscious. There are 6-10 foot Windows overlooking the southeast to thick woodlands in front of a jutting mountain. There are three levels of large, sturdy decks which overlook similar views. This home was clearly designed for comfort, beauty, and peace. The architect fit a perfect celebration of NM into a rural retreat worthy of praise. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us. You made our anniversary memorable in every way.
Great, nothing to improve, just like Jane described. I will go back, best VRBO ever.
We had a great 5 day stay at Canoncito Creek Retreat. Beautiful house, lovely decor, Super Comfortable bed, 3 Awesome patios with fantastic views in every direction. It was so nice to be able to open the windows at night for cool mountain air. Dog friendly was a huge plus! We hiked right out the door into the adjacent canyon and beyond every day. We grilled outside, watched the moon and stars at night from upstairs patio. Very private, quite remote in a good way. The road in is a little rough, but not a problem in late August. The owner was easy to deal with and gave us a lot of good info about the house, area, hiking options. Easy check in/check out. We will definitely stay here again - highly recommend!!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. We saw wild turkeys right outside the house. We enjoyed hiking and seeing all of the wildlife tracks. And then to make it even more spectacular we are driving away from the house and we saw a herd of wild horses! The home is very clean and the beds are very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for sharing your home.
If this looks like the place you would like to visit, it will exceed your expectations. Everything is as described. Everyone is helpful. I had to be pulled away. I am ready to go back.
