Why Elizabeth Clemens chose New Mexico

Our Santa Fe-based family purchased the property and built the home in the early 1990's as weekend getaway and gathering place for extended family and family friends. It's been a perfect place for adults to relax and kids to enjoy being outside. Our family has gotten years of enjoyment out of the home and surrounding area and we hope that your family enjoys it just as much as ours has.

Comfortable, quiet house, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable house with great views.

I loved the solitude. Just being one with nature.

I saw many birds (lots of jays, magpies, chickadees, hummers, also some red-shafted flickers).

Several cute chipmunks.

Sitting close to the pond I heard the occasional large fish jump up and down. Of course when I looked for it, it was already gone.

I liked the desk to the right of the sliding door where I could put my laptop and look outside at the same time.

I did not miss a tv, internet was fine.

Maybe if 8 people would want to get online at the same time it would be a problem but for a solo traveller it was fast enough.

On my first night I saw a deer with her fawn. It was already almost dark but I hadn't turned on the lights yet.

They were right in front of the house so I tried to stay to the wall far away from the window and not move much. Still she spotted me after a few minutes and hurried away.

On my last night I saw three adult female deer on the other side of the pond. They were grazing for a while and then they walked away.

For me this was a special place, very peaceful.

I am already considering coming back.

Beautiful setting

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Everything was perfect. Home was so well appointed that we wanted for nothing! Views from the deck were incredible. We will be coming back to this amazing meadow home.

A piece of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

I will start off by saying that the communication with the owner was exceptional. She responded to every email, phone call and text message in a timely manner. The cabin and the views were amazing. The property was used for our wedding, which turned out perfect. All of our guests had a great time canoeing in the pond, walking around the property, playing outdoor games and just relaxing on the spacious porch. There was plenty of room for the kids to run and play. In addition, the kids bedroom upstairs has a generous amount of toys and books to keep them occupied. If you are looking for a quiet place in the country with views that won't disappoint, look no further. My family and I will definitely be back!

Perfect fit!

  • 5 of 5

Elk Meadows provided a perfect fit for our mini vacation with two of our grandchildren, ages 6 and 9. From the enticing children's room to the never ending opportunities on the little lake and property, we really had no reason or desire to leave! Rarely are we ever not eager to go home no matter where in the world we have traveled. This was not the case at Elk Meadows. Our only regret was that we had not booked more days in paradise!

Better than ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth summer visit to Elk Meadows, the highlight of the summer for our grandchildren and us. Everyone had great fun in the pond. We were again rewarded by sightings of wild geese and deer, and the hummingbirds were going crazy. We were impressed with the upgrades since last year. Thanks again, Elizabeth!
