What a special place! This gorgeous and spacious house--a private compound really--was perched overlooking the Rio Grande Valley; the river was a short pre-dinner stroll away and the mountain views from the hot tub at dawn were wonderful, while the stars at night just as breathtaking. We liked the decor of antiques and comfortable sofas and chairs, as well as the sunny kitchen with everything we needed. We used the fireplaces for cozy winter evenings, though the days were warm and sunny. Sante Fe with its shops and restaurants were a short drive away, as was Taos, but it was good to return to this oasis in a beautiful Southwest landscape. It was hard to leave. We hope to come back soon for a week with the whole family.
