The Studios of Abiquiú Lake are economy guest rooms with queen-sized beds and inspiring views. Located on a mesa top above Abiquiu Lake, you will wake up every morning with spectacular lake and red rock views. The rooms are glamping at its best - defined as glamorous camping! Staying in The Studios is about the ‘experience’ - unplugging and disconnecting (if you choose to), immersing yourself in your surroundings, taking in the night skies and fresh air, hiking from your door, and recharging your spirit.

The El Sol ("The Sun") guest room is about 150 sq ft and has a queen-sized bed, private bath, an oversized shower, private sliding door entrance, heat, hot water and spectacular views. The guest room is furnished with linens, towels, toiletries, a microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. If you need a cooler for food products, just let us know and we will have one outside the room when you check in.

Shared outside common areas include a BBQ grill, outdoor seating, as well as free parking.

As small economy guest rooms, the The Studios do not have WiFi (although your cell phone should work find at the location and you can use your cell as a hot spot) or televisions. Bring all your food and drink provisions with you. Bring prepared foods or plan to prepare simple meals in the microwave, toaster oven or outside on the BBQ.

The Studios are perfect additional rooms for nearby vacation home rentals. They are also great lodging options for solo travelers, couples, outdoor artists or those taking workshops at Ghost Ranch. If you don't need a lot of space or a kitchen, The Studios may be a great option for you. There are two separate guest rooms in the secondary building so another couple may be renting the second guest room.

We live nearby and are available should you need anything. We generally can respond in person or by text immediately. We do provide a code for the door so you can arrive anytime after the scheduled check-in time, without needing to coordinate with us.

All our properties are located outside the village of Abiquiu on Abiquiu Lake. It is about a 20 minute drive to Abiquiu. Stay remotely, yet enjoy conveniences! You are welcome to take advantage of our Mercado (located at The Grand Hacienda Bed and Breakfast in the neighborhood) or order online: gifts, books, cards, local art, bath/body products, jewelry, snacks, food items, and more.

There is a wonderful history in this area - from dinosaurs, to Native American pueblos, to Spanish explorers, to cattle wrestlers, to ghosts and witches, to Georgia O’Keeffe - all the way to our current age where the past history and culture blends with the artist colony that Abiquiu has become.

The room is located in a gated community off of Abiquiu Lake. You will be stepping into what feels like a Georgia O'Keeffe picture - with the lake and red rocks in front of you and Pedernal standing guard behind you. The Studios are located in a secondary building on an 8 acre property. The room is conveniently located near Ghostranch, Echo Amphitheater, Monastery of Christ in the Desert, Plaza Blanca, Pedernal, and the Carson National Forest. You will also want to explore the Purple Adobe Lavender Farm, rafting the Chama River, the Ra Paulette Cave Tour and Ojo Caliente. You will need a car. During winter months, we recommend a 4WD or AWD as many of the roads in New Mexico are dirt/gravel. The roads back to the studios are dirt/gravel.

We understand these are challenging times for travel, but we do believe our remote location away from the crowds provides a perfect setting for these times. While cleanliness has always been a priority, we have now implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures at all our properties in between guests. We disinfect all high touch surfaces (light switches, door knobs, etc) as the home is disinfected. We wash all linens in hot water. We have removed decorative pillows and throws. We encourage you to enter the home without shoes. Our staff wear gloves and masks. Also, the hot tub is always disinfected between stays. Finally, we provide for self-check-in so you are able to come and go without contact. We want you to feel safe when you stay at our properties, so do reach out if you have any questions.

Year Purchased2019Owner Listing StoryHello! We are Carolyn and Tom Calfee, owners of Abiquiu Vacation Homes (The Casita del Lago, Abiquiu Lake Mesa, Studios of Abiquiu Lake). We are active people - love hiking, skiing, running (well, we don’t love that but we do it), taking rides on our motorcycle, and we both just got certified in scuba diving. Healthy living and eating are important to us. Most importantly, we absolutely love the peace, serenity and beauty of northern New Mexico and deeply appreciate the history and culture of the area.

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 and we absolutely love every minute we are there. We recently purchased the Abiquiu Lake Mesa home.

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.

We have met people from all over the world who have discovered The Casita del Lago on Abiquiu Lake. Honestly, we are frequently surprised by how many people know about the little village of Abiquiu…how a couple in Australia heard about our home or why a guest from Spain would choose our home so he could swim (train) in Abiquiu Lake every morning. Meeting our guests - who quickly become part of our Casita del Lago family - is the best part of this experience. We pride ourselves in setting an example as honest, ethical hosts who want every guest to have a perfect experience. Because of this, we have a high rate of return guests.

And this is why we continue to rent out our home: meeting new friends; the positive stories, reviews, and pictures; and guests who never want to leave at the end of their stay - that is the beauty of the vacation rental journey.
