The space
ABIQUIU LAKE MESA is a wonderful private home set in Georgia O'Keeffe country with spectacular views of the red cliffs of Ghost Ranch and the glassy waters of Abiquiu Lake. Located in Georgia O'Keeffe territory, it is surrounded by red and purple rock formations, Abiquiu Lake, the Chama River, Carson National Forest and Cerro Pedernal. Every view from every direction is, quite simply, spectacular. It's remote location, away from the crowds, provides for stillness, peace, and an absence of noise and light pollution.

Step into the home and you will know you have arrived someplace special. It offers a spacious and open living area that includes a fully equipped kitchen, a separate dining area with a four person dining table, and 2 bar-stools at the breakfast bar. The cozy living room with a fireplace invites you to curl up and enjoy a movie or watch the game from your comfortable couch and two leather reclining chairs. The primary bedroom suite has an en-suite bath with double sinks, a walk-in shower and soaking tub. Luxurious linens and quality amenities finish the package. Stay connected (if you must) with high speed WIFI and two TVs with local and cable channels. Bring your favorite movies to pop in the DVR. All you need to do is show up with your food and drink!

The home features sliding glass doors from both the dining area and the master bedroom that open up to a deck which spans the length of the house and overlooks the lake. The deck offers three different seating areas and is the perfect place for morning coffee, an artist's easel, a great book, or glass of wine. Choose a highboy bistro table for two; or sit in the chairs above the stairs to watch the eagles and ravens fly by; or choose the entertaining area with seating for five around an outdoor coffee table. The steps from the deck lead to the fire pit, the six-person hot tub, or the start to a great hike.

COVID SAFETY. The home is cleaned to the highest standards and uses cleaning products recommended by the CDC. We follow the "Stay Safe" guidelines through the American Hotel and Lodging Association. Our hot tub is professionally cleaned and disinfected between every guest.

For the security of our guests and the home, a Ring Doorbell is installed on this property. This system records only the motion and audio outside front door area and not any of the private areas or inside the home. We value your safety, security and privacy.

If Abiquiu Lake Mesa is booked - consider our our luxury bed and breakfast property (The Grand Hacienda).

Hello! We are Carolyn and Tom, owners of The Casita del Lago and Abiquiu Lake Mesa vacation rental homes and The Grand Hacienda B&B! We are active people - love hiking, skiing, running (well, we don’t love that but we do it), taking rides on our motorcycle, and scuba diving. Healthy living and eating are important to us. Most importantly, we absolutely love the peace, serenity and beauty of northern New Mexico and deeply appreciate the history and culture of the area.

We found the most beautiful spot on planet earth back in 2010 - we couldn’t believe land surrounded by a lake, a river, million-year-old red rocks, and Pedernal was for sale. We purchased our land that very night. Eventually we built The Casita del Lago on the lakefront property and then purchased and remodeled the Abiquiu Lake Mesa home. In 2020, we completed our biggest project yet - The Grand Hacienda Bed and Breakfast on Abiquiu Lake. Please check it out.

Today, we share the beauty and magic of the Land of Enchantment with others by renting out our home and running the B&B to enable others to experience this incredible location…if you haven’t seen the sun rise or set over Abiquiu Lake and the red rocks, or, if you haven’t experienced an absence of noise and light pollution - then, well, you’ve missed the best part of Abiquiu.

We have met people from all over the world who have discovered The Casita del Lago on Abiquiu Lake. Honestly, we are frequently surprised by how many people know about the little village of Abiquiu…how a couple in Australia heard about our home or why a guest from Spain would choose our home so he could swim (train) in Abiquiu Lake every morning. Meeting our guests - who quickly become part of our family of guests - is the best part of this experience. We pride ourselves in setting an example as honest, ethical hosts who want every guest to have a perfect experience. Because of this, we have a high rate of return guests.

And this is why we continue to provide lodging in Abiquiu: meeting new friends; the positive stories, reviews, and pictures; and guests who never want to leave at the end of their stay - that is the beauty of the vacation rental journey.

Reach out to us at anytime!

Safe travels,
Carolyn & Tom
