Please see important NOTE at the end of this description regarding RV's and other recreation vehicles.

'It was all so far away--there was quiet and an untouched feel to the country and I could work as I pleased.' Georgia O'Keeffe

Serenity abounds at Casa Bonita, where it is easy to see why this country had such a profound impact on Georgia O'Keeffe. Light and open, this modern adobe rests on ten acres overlooking Abiquiu Lake towards Ghost Ranch, with gorgeous views in all directions. Picture windows throughout the living area allow you to appreciate the vistas from the comfort of the well-appointed interior. The covered portales (covered porches) are ideal for enjoying the tranquility of the environment. Admire the view of the Pedernal from the portale off of the master suite, or take in the iconic landscape of Ghost Ranch while you grill on the portale off of the kitchen.

Spend your days hiking, visiting area galleries, or reconnecting with your own creative side. And after enjoying the unique sunset at the end of the day, savor the starlight of the unadulterated night sky.

'My first memory is of light--the brightness of light--light all around.' Georgia O'Keeffe

NOTE: RV's, trailers of any sort, large trucks, and small vehicles: motorcycles, skimobiles and such are prohibited in this gated community, called High Mesas.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

With spectacular views and a noticeable absence of people, light and noise, this was a fantastic escape. We hope to come back.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for 2 nights and just loved it. There are stunning views from just about every window. It is so quiet and peaceful I kept checking my hearing! The home is well equipped and a perfect place to experience the beauty of Abiquiu and channel Georgia O'Keefe.

If you are not going to be going out for all your meal, make sure you bring enough food because it is a bit of a drive to eat out or shop for food. Besides, we did not want to leave the beauty of the place. We look forward to our next visit!

Breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

Believe me when I say this is one of the most beautiful places on earth! We don’t want to leave. The house is perfect, stocked with everything you need. The views that greet you each morning are unbelievable! It’s private, quiet, and peaceful. It’s a mile hike down to the lake—definitely make a point to do that. You’ll see lots of bunnies, desert flowers, and beautiful rocks. Also, go hike the trails at Ghost Ranch. This area is a hidden gem and I really hope to make it back here someday for a longer stay. We were only here two nights & that is not enough time. I’m so sad to leave. I can’t say enough good things about this house, the views, and the area.
