“Closer to nature than many, but all the conveniences of home.”
Reviewed 24 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We enjoyed having plenty of space and conveniences in the house and watching the hungry magpies and steller's jays munch and cache our sunflower seed. The nearby hiking trails offer great views and we had the option of cooking and eating here or going to restaurants 10 to 30 minutes away. Wi-fi, hot-tub, satellite TV, it's got a great mix of solitude, nature and civilization.

“A fabulous pet-friendly return visit!”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was our 2nd stay at Casa Ambrosia, and we'll definitely return. The location is fantastic--so quiet and serene. The architecture and architectural features make this a light and airy and comfortable house for the two of us and our two big dogs. Although there is no air conditioning, we were comfortable with fans. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked with the basics, The hot tub was terrific and the scenery makes it even more spectacular. Last time, we visited in winter and couldn't explore the higher elevations due to heavy snow, but this time in July, we had a great time exploring up El Rito Canyon and higher elevation trails.

“Secluded Get-a-way”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A wonderful location; secluded with beautiful views. The home was extremely clean. During our trip it snowed/rained most of the time and it's worth noting that approximately 2 miles of roadway to this home is dirt, so a 4x4 or AWD vehicle is recommended if weather conditions call for precipitation. We enjoyed our dinner at El Farolito in El Rito (less than 3 miles away) and the stream running through this property. We spent a portion of our time at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs which is about 20 minutes away and a beautifully scenic drive. We will definitely consider staying at this location again.

“Quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed 4 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I am writing this from the portico cubierto at Casa Ambrosia. Really hate leaving tomorrow because it is so peaceful and quiet here. The adobe architecture and soothing southwest colors combine to create a healing place. The views are beautiful including the stars and lightening shows over the mountains. This is a well stocked home perfect for a remote getaway. There is easy access to Ojo Caliente (20 min) and Taos (45 min) and desert hiking trails. Expect to bring your food and drinks as there are no grocery stores. Internet and Dish TV work well and never lost cell phone service. We love it and can highly recommend it.

“Cozy, remote, nice owner, peaceful, amazing views....”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved our experience at Casa Ambrosia. The living room was large and easily accommodating to a large family. In our party we had three adult women and one toddler. The kitchen was equipped with every convenience a chef may require. There was a nice dishwasher, washer and dryer which we put to good use. The rooms were spacious with great views of wildflowers and green farmland. The restroom was large enough for two people to get ready at the same time. The hot tub and porch area was beautiful. The road to the house is dirt and does flood so if you notice the weather getting a bit dreary, head home!!! Overall we had the greatest time. The home is literally 5-7 minutes to Northern New Mexico University. The people in the area are so kind and helpful. We will definitely visit again. Thank you!!!!

Management Response

I'm so glad you all enjoyed your time in El Rito, and that you found the house comfortable and nicely appointed. it makes me very happy when the peacefulness and beauty of the house and surrounding areas are as nourishing to guests as they have been to me. And we've had a wonderfully wet and green Summer this year. In the almost 20 years I've owned the place, I've never seen the road be flooded like that. it was an exceptionally heavy rain that day, and our kind neighbors were out immediately clearing the road, before the county crews arrived to finish the job. We're lucky to have well-maintained county roads in this area, that are passable year round. One of my favorite things to do is to go exploring along these country roads, discovering new places to hike, see wildflowers, meadows and streams, and beautiful red rock formations. You gals were such warm and enthusiastic guests, and I hope you'll get to come visit again sometime! You're always welcome!
