Big Little Hideaway
3 sites · Lodging5 acres · Taos, NMWe call it Big Little Hideaway and it will take you about 30 seconds upon arriving to discover why. My wife and I had been coming to Taos to ski for years and years and always felt at home, but it was a Summer trip that made us realize how much our souls belong here. My wife envisioned a property with a beautiful gate so that it feels like a courtyard (And she got it!) and after visiting the hot springs we knew this was The Spot!This is perfect if you're looking for a little bit of everything; mountain views, minutes away from hiking, paddle boarding, hot springs, skiing, and endless roads and beauty to explore. We're 15 minutes away from Taos and Arroyo Secco where you can enjoy great food, galleries and shopping, and 30 minutes away from the awesome Taos Ski Valley.Ideal for couples or families of 4 or close friends.

Because of this, there will be more pastured meadows than before. As well as more flowers and underbrush. With the June and July rains we should have fresh new grass, leaves, plants by the time of your visit.

Ocate Cliffs
7 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents140 acres · Ocate, NMMy name is Star Ford, and together with a group of other autistic people, I’m building an autistic workplace called Ocate Cliffs.

And all of the staff will be autistic.It is currently open for camping, and can be rented out by groups such as churches, other non-profits, and family reunions.We are located near Ocate, New Mexico in the Sangre de Cristo mountains.

Wild River Oasis by Ojo Hot Springs
4 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents3 acres · La Madera, NMLearn more about this land: Lush high desert river oasis nestled in a fertile valley in the Carson National Forest right between the fiery expanse of Taos and the rolling colorful formations of Abiquiu. Peaceful & private 3 acres right by the river at the edge of a little quaint town called La Madera (145 people, no shops)- just 6 miles to the healing mineral Hot Springs of Ojo Caliente. Right by the river, held by a ridge (that makes for amazing sunset hikes), I have a 16ft Yurt Canvas Tent set up with some furnishings (desk, couch, wash stand) and a wooden Queen Bed with bedding. This site can only be reached by foot across the river via stumps- a car can be parked near by.. approx. 50ft.    Guests may use the bathroom in the main house.  +++ 6 miles to Ojo Caliente Hot Springs. There you will find the best restaurant in the area, with locally/organically farmed produce. Very yummy!  The land is naturally & beautifully wild- it is not a manicured campsite. The dirt rd down to the property is best suited for higher clearance vehicles, but is manageable for city cars.  Waterhole, Waterfall and climbing sites near by, as well as Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu, Ghost Ranch and the Taos Gorge are 30 mins drive away.  *No cell service in the greater area. WiFi reaches all the way to the river site/or trailer sites and allows for WiFi Calling: that’s a setting in your phone that enables phone calls & texts beside usual internet access.
