The Casita del Lago is lakefront property on 22 acres of natural beauty, without noise or light pollution. It truly is 'the land of enchantment'. The modern yet authentic home is a luxury Abiquiu casita accommodation, complete with all the amenities and quality furnishings required to ensure a perfect vacation. Enjoy original artwork, a state-of-art kitchen, modern technology, free WIFI, two flat screen TVs, floor-to-ceiling windows, air conditioning, authentic furniture and furnishings, washer/dryer, and amazing views. Warm cooler winter nights with both indoor and outdoor fire places. And soak in the hot tub, nestled in the rocks above the lake, for a private viewing of the lake, Chama River and stars. Perfectly located on Abiquiu Lake and near all the major attractions, this Abiquiu vacation rental is your home-away-from-home.
Hello! We are Carolyn and Tom Calfee, owners of The Casita del Lago. We are parents to three awesome kids who are now young adults. We love hiking, skiing, running, taking motorcycle rides, and we both just got certified in scuba diving. We found the most beautiful spot on planet earth back in 2010 - we couldn’t believe land surrounded by a lake, a river, million-year-old red rocks, and Pedernal was for sale. We purchased our land that very night. Eventually we built The Casita del Lago on the lakefront property. We treasure the stillness, the silence, the remoteness. The land is inspirational, and adventurous. We also deeply appreciate and respect the history and culture of the area.​ ​ Today, we share the beauty and magic of the Land of Enchantment with others by renting out our home and enabling others to experience this incredible location…if you haven’t seen the sun rise or set over Abiquiu Lake and the red rocks, or, if you haven’t experienced an absence of noise and light pollution - then, well, you’ve missed the best part of Abiquiu.
Abiquiu Lake is a quiet and beautiful lake, and Pedernal Mountain stands guard over it. Conveniently located and yet private and remote, The Casita is located in Abiquiu between Santa Fe and Taos (60 miles northwest of Santa Fe and 90 miles southwest of Taos) just outside the historic town of Abiquiú on Abiquiú Lake. Located in a gated community on 22 acres, and surrounded by amazing views of Abiquiu Lake, the Chama River, Cerro Pedernal and red/purple rocks, you will quickly realize why nothing else compares. The Casita is conveniently located near all the major attractions: Ghost Ranch, Echo Amphitheater, Plaza Blanca, Monastery of Christ in the Desert, Carson National Forest, Pedernal, horse back riding, rafting, the Chama River, and, of course, Abiquiu Lake. There are many Abiquiu activities- things to do and see in Abiquiu - from your own private Abiquiu VRBO home base.
