About the property

Charming Cottage Conveniently Located

There are daily, weekly, and monthly rates. Nightly is $120 with a 4 night minimum. $650 a week and $1650 a month. Higher during Balloon Fiesta.

This Timy House (598 square feet) feels much larger than you'd think from the square footage. It's a newly renovated and newly furnished 1920s railroad workers cottage iand it's right next door to my other listing (479374). It boasts a newly tilled bathroom, full kitchen, new queen-size bed, new furniture and kitchen supplies, and a private outside deck with table and chairs.

There is a washer/dryer in the cottage as well as a dishwasher. There is an alarm system and either parking right in front of the cottage or directly behind it in its own space.

New sheets and fluffy towels, dishes and pots and pans and cutlery will make visitors feel right at home.

The furniture is very tasteful and casual. There is a small dining table for two, a sideboard, full living room furniture and a desk.

It's perfect for short-term vacationers or folks coming In for longer periods for work, such as movie production crew or traveling nurses.

It's right around the corner from the zoo and Bosque Bakery and an easy hop over to Old Town in one direction or the hospitals, the university and Nob Hill in the other. Keep on going and catch the shuttle to the Balloon Fiesta.

About Blythe Camenson

I'm originally from Boston via LA. I landed in Albuquerque in 1998 and never left. I've been a teacher (I was in the Middle East all of the 80s), a writer, a house renovator, and a Realtor, now with two properties to offer for short-term vacation or business rentals. I love Albuquerque and can help you find just what you are looking for to make your trip here special.

Blythe Camenson purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Blythe Camenson chose Barelas

I was so excited when I learned the property next door to my Zoo View Cottage (listing #479374) was going to be for sale. It's as adorable and charming as the first one, and of course as conveniently located near the zoo, downtown, and Old Town. Comparing the two cottages, this one has a bigger bedroom and bed, the other one has a larger living room and smaller bedroom. This cottage has a dishwasher and more closet space.they both have a really nice cozy backyard area.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the wide plank flooring, the shiny red washing machine and dryer, the new shady deck outside with the teal colored fence all around.

Albuquerque Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect cottage for a short or long term stay in Albuquerque. The cottage is located in an old neighborhood, very quiet and secure, perfect for 1 or 2 people. I had the pleasure of renting this cottage for 4 months while working in ABQ. I could not have had a better experience. Blythe is extremely helpful and available 24/7. The cottage is absolutely delightful...fully equipped kitchen, washer/ dryer, entertainment unit, comfortable bed, private outside patio, beautifully decorated and full of natural light, ultra secure and clean as a whistle. Staying here truly enhanced my stay and experience in ABQ. I highly recommend staying here, I personally would return to this little house in a heartbeat!!

Very nice, small home near downtow

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is centrally located and easy to access from both I40 & I25. The home is in the residential area near the zoo and very quiet at night. The interior is very well kept, with everything you need. I recommend this home for any short or long term traveller to the area.

The cottage is within walking distance of the zoo, a dog park, the Bosque Bakery, a pizza place and Java Joe's. It's also just a few blocks to downtown in one direction and Old Town in the other. A straight shot down Coal in a mile or so you're at the university, then Nob Hill. It has high walkability and bikeability scores too.
