'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
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.
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.
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:
- the VIEWS!
- cooling breezes
And literally I could come up with thousands more. We are considering visiting every year now. It's the best.
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.
We all enjoyed our brief stay at your home. Finding the place was a bit of a challenge, but we were guided to the place by the contact person in the directions. The place had everything we needed. The view of the lake and mountains was spectacular. We hiked to the lake along the arroyo and encountered a rattler...without incident. The road to the house is rather rocky...so come prepared. Thank you for sharing your place.
