Beautiful Adobe Overlooking Ghost Ranch And Abiquiu Lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps, Modern Adobe

'It was all so far away--there was quiet and an untouched feel to the country and I could work as I pleased.' Georgia O'Keeffe

Serenity abounds at Casa Bonita, where it is easy to see why this country had such a profound impact on Georgia O'Keeffe. Light and open, this modern adobe rests on ten acres overlooking Abiquiu Lake towards Ghost Ranch, with gorgeous views in all directions. Picture windows throughout the living area allow you to appreciate the vistas from the comfort of the well-appointed interior. The covered portales (covered porches) are ideal for enjoying the tranquility of the environment. Admire the view of the Pedernal from the portale off of the master suite, or take in the iconic landscape of Ghost Ranch while you grill on the portale off of the kitchen.

Spend your days hiking, visiting area galleries, or reconnecting with your own creative side. And after enjoying the unique sunset at the end of the day, savor the starlight of the unadulterated night sky.

'My first memory is of light--the brightness of light--light all around.' Georgia O'Keeffe

Beautiful Adobe Overlooking Ghost Ranch And Abiquiu Lake
average rating of 4.9444447 based on 54 reviews

Amazing beauty, solitude and superb home.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication with owner and caretakers. Easy to book and excellent directions to the most stunning home with views of the lake and mountains. The home was immaculate and the kitchen is fully stocked with anything needed to cook. All furnishings were comfortable as well as goegeous. The wifi was fine and they had all the Tv etc that some may enjoy. We did not turn on anything because we were completely there to find peace and quiet and be out in nature . We walked to lake and found it to be a nice and easy hike. We had proper boots and gear but it was a short and manageable . We saw huge deer, cows , coyotes and many beautiful birds. Our golden retriever was so happy and found all the beautiful sunny spots on both patios. She did not want to come inside except to sleep, and for that matter neither did we. We brought our food with us but Bodies grocery store has all you could want. We literally fell in love with this home and the complete solitude. The bedrooms are gorgeous and so are the views .

We have fallen in love with Casita Bonita and the location. We had snow in the morning and sun all other days. We sat out at night and heard the most amazing sounds and saw the beautiful stars , moon etc.

If you love the mountains and want to get away this is the place for you .

This was our second visit to Casa Bonita, and it was even better than our first. Comfortable, everything you need, views from every window, quiet, birds, wildlife and more! We have already booked our third visit.

This is truly a beautiful home and the location is fabulous. We wanted quiet and beauty and there was much more of both than we anticipated. You couldn't ask for a more well stocked home there was nothing we needed to bring besides our clothing and food. We loved watching the sun change the color of the mountains aver Abiquiu Lake each evening at sunset. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants something off the beaten path and who is interested in the outdoors.

Grand Vistas

  • 4 of 5

What a view! This home is perched atop a hill over the lake, with views of Ghost Ranch in the front and O'Keeffe's famous Pedernal in the back. The house is beautifully and simply decorated and blends right into it's surrounding landscape. We had a great time exploring the area during the day and cooking and enjoying the view at night. It's off the beaten path which for us was a good thing, so plan to bring all you'll need for your stay!

The owners, John and Scott, are awesome and available to you if you have any questions at all.

Incredibly relaxing casita with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

If you're considering booking this place, do it now. There's not a better home in the entire area. Here are words I would use to describe it:

- relaxing

- quiet

- the VIEWS!

- secluded

- sunny

- cooling breezes

- serene

- cozy

And literally I could come up with thousands more. We are considering visiting every year now. It's the best.

Tranquility And Beauty In the High Desert

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I were considering where to stay over the course of our first anniversary, it was clear that this property potentially represented all that we hoped to experience on our journey - privacy, scenic beauty, and a connection with nature. Our stay at the casa was exactly what we had hoped for. The layout of the adobe allows you incredible views of Abiquiu Lake, the surrounding property, and Ghost Ranch from every vantage point in the house. The adobe's layout, design, and structure compliment its context so well. We greatly enjoyed our walk down the arroyo to the lake and loved just sitting outside and taking in all that was around us. When you plan your stay, we would highly recommend using an AWD vehicle with good clearance as the roadways close to the property are rugged. In summary, we had a fantastic stay and couldn't have been more pleased.
