    Peaceful and pampered
    This was my second stay and as usual Pam went out of her way to ensure it was easy and wonderful. Pam makes herself available but never intrudes, and we wanted for nothing. We'll be back!

    Best place to quarantine EVER!!!
    Pam was the very best hostess EVER during my stay with her. I was in New Mexico needing to quarantine for18 days so that I could spend time with my brother. He lives close by and would come to visit and bring me groceries from a distance of 20 feet. Pam, living on the property, was so conscientious and respectful of our need to be very careful with mask wearing and social distancing. She alerted me whenever she had other people coming to the property which was very much appreciated! She allowed me access to her horses Sugar and Buddy and her dogs Bailey and Trouble which made my stay so much more enjoyable and made the time go by (too) quickly! She always told me when she was going to town and asked me if I needed anything, which I always did, and she would bring me great treats! I cannot say enough good things about Pam. She was kind, thoughtful, caring and so accommodating and on top of all that, her casita is AMAZING!!! The views were so awesome with fantastic sunsets and beautiful starry nights! I was so comfy and at peace and felt right at home, even in the midst of crazy times! So obviously I think anyone who has an opportunity to go and stay there should, with no hesitation!

    Beautiful quiet casita!
    Wonderful stay. Quiet, clean. Pamela is an excellent hostess! The views are incredible and the horses and dogs are a plus. We used it as a central location to explore Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Easy to find. Really close to walking and biking trails! We will come and stay again!

    5/5 Excellent

    This was a wonderful little casita that Pam (owner) made into an incredible experience for me/her guests! It's spotless and feels luxurious due to the simple yet high-quality furnishings and attention to detail: fluffy towels, comfy bed, candles, bath salts, yummy coffee.... Pam not only was incredibly responsive to my questions and requests but went above and beyond in recommending nearby hikes and even guided me to a trailhead! What a wonderful place to catch one's breath, easy access to Albuquerque and Santa Fe if one desires, or to natural beauties. I'd definitely come back! Thank you Pam!

    5/5 Excellent

    Always refreshing!
    No matter the time of year or time of day, it is always an amazing refresher to be reminded of how beautiful it is there!! And the horses are a plus! Very thankful for you sharing it with us!
