The Chameleon Cabin was the perfect get-away. Loved hearing the river flowing by through the open windows. Everything we needed was there and the host was super quick to respond to questions that came up. Extremely friendly as well :)

Casita is like stepping back in time and it’s very well maintained. The deck out back is literally right up to the river! Great fireplace/pit for fires that will go all night! Bring your own water! Hosts are very friendly and full of information about their land/casita and the area. Great biking and hiking in the area. So worth the drive from Colorado!

This place is paradise! It was very well cleaned and maintained! There are beautiful fishing spots (if you want to venture out beyond the back deck) and they’re not far at all!
We were provided disposable tableware, drink cups and coffee cups for four, as well as paper towels, pots, pans, hot plate, microwave, fridge, coffee pot… everything you need! Bring your own spices, soaps, etc. If you need anything there’s a Dollar General right down the road. No water in the home but the bathrooms have some and are super close and not scary to walk to at night.
Gabriel was wonderful! Bedding was clean and warm! Cell reception is spotty at best but that was perfect for us! Great place to get away without giving up certain luxuries. We will absolutely return often!

Me and my boyfriend chose this place for the beautiful cabin and deck. I really enjoyed waking up and immediately being welcomed to the creek. It was so peaceful and beautiful!

We were thoroughly delighted with this picturesque little cabin. The location was perfect. What a delight to wake up to the sound of the water rushing and the birds singing. We were able to spend time visiting Pecos National Monument, Monastery Lake, and a picnicking site in the mountains, all within a short 10-15m drive from the cabin. When we weren't out exploring we were sitting on the deck enjoying the river, or exploring the river path along the edge of the property. The cabin itself was equipped with everything we needed including towels, paper products, a refrigerator, many electric appliances, and some firewood to use in the outdoor fireplace. We would love to return at some point!

Excellent spot to getaway for a weekend. It's definitely rustic, but I appreciate that aspect of it. Gabriel gave us a tour of the property and was extremely nice. Bathroom/showers aren't too far from the cabin if you're concerned about that. I'll definitely be back.
