    The Pecos River Cliff House, it is Magical!

    Adults-only vacation home in San Jose with sauna
    NEW DRONE VIDEOS ON VRBO. CLICK BUTTON ABOVE The Pecos River Cliff House – It’s Magical!

Welcome to the Pecos River Cliff House – a magical place where luxury meets wilderness. Located just 30 minutes from Santa Fe at the edge of the Santa Fe National Forest, this breathtaking cliff house towers 50 feet above the majestic Pecos River. Make yourself at home in the custom adobe house, where back bay windows provide a stunning view of the great beyond. 
Embrace comfort and relaxation at every turn with upscale amenities that include hypoallergenic linens, top-of-the-line mattresses, and a stocked Keurig coffeemaker. The bathroom is equipped with an over-sized jacuzzi tub and a Mr. Steamer shower system so that you can clean off desert dust and unwind after a long day of adventure. 
Whether you’re looking to unplug and explore or settle in for the night, there are infinite activities and entertainment options you can enjoy. Inside the air-conditioned house, we offer lightning-fast wifi and cellphone service, a Chromebook, a Bluetooth speaker system, and a ROKU Smart TV.

 Walk down the 50-foot staircase and step into the cold water at the Pecos River’s edge. The exclusive resort is yours to explore with year-round trout fishing in the river, beginner rock climbing, a large meadow for picnicking and campfires, and 250 feet of private river access. Seasonally, a 40-foot waterfall complements the landscape neatly, itself complemented by a 50-foot cliff, like something out of a painting. The wildlife at Cliff House is abundant too, adding a touch of vibrancy to an already-vibrant property. If for some reason you find yourself wanting more, there are 1.5 million acres of pristine National Forest land just across the river. Let your wild side out, cruising around in the on-site Monster Jeep Wrangler, which is available for rent. 

The Pecos River Cliff House is the perfect jumping-off place for every outdoor adventure. From the canyon to the redwoods, there are picture-perfect, once-in-a-lifetime sights all around you at The Cliff House. Adventure awaits. Amenities: Fishing, Canoeing, Rock Climbing, Nature, Hiking, Exploring, Off Roading, Bird Watching, Swimming, Tubing, Kayaking, Horse Shoes & much more Videos: Make sure to watch our videos online

            Perfect in every way!

            This adorable Adobe style, modern home has a comfortable layout and is very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed cooking meals in its spacious kitchen, watching family flicks on the couch and sleeping with all the windows open. But most of all, we enjoyed the outdoor space! You know you're having a great vacation when your daily choices consist of either watching humming birds on the back porch, reading on a bench by the river, tubing/kayaking/canoeing, hiking with the dog or running around and catching bugs & frogs with your kiddo. We didn't see a single person all week and truly enjoyed the serenity. The property is kid and dog friendly and amazing in every way! If I only had a penny for every "when can we go back to the cliff house??" question my 7-year-old has asked me since the minute we left...
