About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) Detached studio with 3/4 bath sleeps 2

Beautiful modern mountain cabin with all high end amenities INSIDE the Santa Fe National forest.

Summer and Winter wonderland!

The home is all on one level - no stairs of any kind (except the exterior stairs down to the hutub) King bed in the master and two queen beds in the guest rooms - all plush pillow top beds with very comfy sheets and down comforters.

Awesome master bath with giant cast iron tub, perfect for two if you don't feel like sitting in the hot tub :-)

Fully stocked kitchen with a Viking range and everything you will need.

Extreme privacy - this is one of the only properties like this in the Santa Fe area - a true mountain paradise get away, yet so close to town with a mountain creek that winds through the forest.

Out door enthusiasts will love it here, bring your mountain bikes in the summer and your cross country ski's in the winter, ski right out the front door!

Since we are located in the national forest hikers will love it here. There are great trails within walking distance or by a short drive - another reason to have an SUV so its easier to get up into the forest past the cabin.

The home has ample deck and patio space overlooking the creek and hot tub, perfect for out door entertaining.

Birders will love it up here! We have great birds all year around but especially in the summer when the hummingbirds are everywhere.

Cool temps in the summer when downtown is hot!

Encantado resort is right down the road for world class dining and spa services.

There is a 2 mile dirt road to the property and the last 1/2 mile can be very bumpy and it can get muddy or snowy depending on the weather. I would recommend an SUV or higher clearance vehicle for the summer months to make travel on the road more comfortable. In the winter a four wheel drive SUV or truck is mandatory because we are in the mountains and there will be snow - see the pictures.

So if you are looking for a place to truly relax and be surrounded by nature yet be close to all that Santa Fe has to offer please consider us!

Pets are allowed for a fee, please discuss with me first.

About Brian Bodei

My name is Brian and I have lived in this paradise for over 17 years and now its time to share.

Brian Bodei purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Brian Bodei chose Santa Fe County

This is the only location thats this close to Santa Fe, inside the national forest, on a stream that affords total privacy and high quality of living. I feel so blessed to have been able to live up here all these years. I can never get over how beautiful Pacheco Canyon is!

What makes this cabin unique

This home was designed by and award winning designer - no boring architecture here. The home was planned to feel like the outdoors and indoors were one, and I truly think we succeeded. Sitting by the creek, watching the humming birds, having margaritas on the deck - or in the hot tub. Mountain biking and skiing right out the front door - endless miles of hiking and exploring, watching the birds - it never gets old! The only problem with staying up here is that you will not want to leave....Santa whaa?

peaceful escape

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, clean and well kept. Instantly relaxing when you get there. The master bedroom is beautiful, opening up on the mountain stream, and I have not slept so well in months. My wife, kids, and I enjoyed the canyon tremendously and went for daily hikes, sat by the stream, and enjoyed the "cabin" (more like a well appointed home). Brian was awesome, super helpful, and always available. A beautiful, peaceful place to stay.

Peaceful, easy living in the clean mountain air!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so lovely - quiet (with a little sweet buzz from the many hummingbirds), clean, elegant. The design of the house and separate guest studio made it perfect for our crew which ranged in age from twin 17-month-olds, through the couples in their 30's, to us (the active 60-ishes) to our dear matriarch of 95. Everyone enjoyed the amenities of the home and beauty of the canyon. The rains were luxurious and fragrant (no extra charge). Brian has done a lovely job of providing all we needed in his well-appointed home. He makes it very low-key and simple. We took his advice on a few area activities and enjoyed Santa Fe, Chimayo, the lavender farm (a little further than we first thought, but fun) and the canyon itself. We hope to return one day soon!

A wonderful mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience! The owner was super-easy to deal with, always answered questions promptly, and arranged lots of special "extras" on the property itself. The house was luxurious, spacious, VERY quiet, great hot tub, awesome kitchen. The road was absolutely fine for AWD vehicles and vehicles with high clearance. And thanks, Brian, for arranging the rain storm!!

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was probably one of our favorite homes that we’ve rented to date.The creek running in front of the house was the cherry on top for me. That along with the views, the birds, the hot tub, the bed and bath tub, I was a happy woman. My husband loved the location and loved our drive up the mountain to the meadow. Thank you for sharing your home with us, we loved it!
