'The Pines' Is The Perfect Log Cabin Getaway In The Beautiful Jemez Mtns.

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in New Mexico - 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.

Why Martha Landes chose New Mexico

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.

Remote getaway surrounded by beautiful pines

  • 5 of 5

I took my sister and my three year old daughter to The Pines for our spring break vacation. We had a wonderful time, the rooms were unique and we each had one that fit us. My daughter loved the wagon room and the selection of toys available. I really enjoyed having a wood burning fireplace and an outdoor grill. We were able to use the cabin as a jumping off point to visit Santa Fe and theGrandCanyon. Overall our stay was a solid 10/10. I look forward to returning with my husband.

Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved it! Very relaxing, quiet, we felt at home. Loved the unique rooms, very creative. Very roomy, well equipped kitchen and plenty of games, puzzles, movies and just so many extras. From the beautiful front porch we got to watch the lunar eclipse over the mountains. We are already planning another visit!!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing. Grandkids loved it. Directions and information by owner were excellent.We could not have found a better location for our hiking and sightseeing in the Jemez Mtns. The youngest granddaughter loved the Cowboy room and especially all the toys to occupy her. We felt "The Pines" meet our needs exactly as needed. We would do it again.

Still feeling rested!

  • 5 of 5

Slept better than in my own home! So comfortable, cozy and safe. Had a girls weekend, hiking, soaking, and catching up. Can't wait to come back. So many hiking areas to explore. Everyone in town was very friendly and shared favorite trails and soaks. Highly recommend this rental! Show up with your clothes, and a packed cooler and you are in for an awesome time.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four came here for a spring break getaway. With snow still on the ground, it couldn't have been any more beautiful. So warm and comfortable, and the decor is delightful! We could have stayed for weeks enjoying the scenery and all the movies and books on site.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We just left this beautiful cabin after spending 4 nights here and we already miss it! Beautiful, relaxing, quiet, and a great place to spend our end to 2014! We will definitely be back this year hopefully once during the summer and again for the holidays. Thank you Martha for sharing your place with us.
