Our second time staying in this neighborhood, overlooking the lake. This house was the perfect size, and a great place for our elopement! The hot tub was ideal, and the views were perfect. It was nice to have a slice of the lake in the cove, even if it was too cold to get in.
My husband has always talked about experiencing Lake Abiquiu and the surrounding areas, so for his 50th birthday I booked Casa Del Lago. We arrived after sunset, so waking up the views of the lake and landscape was fantastic! The house is positioned above the lake and the views are spectacular. The house is a 2 Bedroom/2 Bath home that is fully equipped for making everything from basic lunch to a gourmet meal. The beds are so comfortable and the views from the bedrooms, den, kitchen and hot tub are incredible. We loved the weekend...we cooked, hiked, relaxed in the hot tub. We spent an afternoon riding horses at Ghost Ranch, read and listed to music. We will definitely be back and will extend our stay!
This is a wonderful home and it is hard to believe it is a vacation rental - this is a high end home with wonderful furnishings, art, appliances, linens, etc. You will feel peace and serenity the minute you arrive. Gone is traffic, noises, light, people - you will hear birds, wind and the lake. At night, you will only see stars. The views from the home and its patio are incredible. Bring a bottle of wine, sit back, and relax. Time goes by quickly! PS: we did a lot of research before booking this home, and I will just say that we made the right decision: Ghost Ranch is very rustic in a youth hostel type of way, Abiquiu Inn is under construction and is full of tourists, homes in the village are in need of some love, and other homes are attached to the owners home. So -- for us, this home is the place to stay and we can't wait to come back.
Staying here was the best part of our vacation. My wife and I have wanted to visit Abiquiu for some time. We weren't interested in staying at the Inn because of the crowds and construction going on downtown Abiquiu. So we booked this house on the lake. Wow. It is so beautiful and quiet. The stars at night are amazing. We loved watching sun rises, sun sets, the lake. It is quiet and peaceful. A perfect get-away. The house is great - high end furnishings, hand carved doors, a full new kitchen, comfortable beds, beautifully tiled showers. They had all the seasonings you would want for cooking and even supplied BBQ supplies. Internet worked great. House is centrally located for the things we wanted to see - Ghost Ranch, hiking, plaza blanca, pedernal, lake, monastery. A perfect vacation.
A stunningly beautiful home with majestic views that change by the hour. Silence. Stars. Privacy. Near Ghost Ranch hiking. Carol is a wonderful host and has thought of every detail to make it a truly relaxing vacation.
