We had a much-needed relaxing time at this charming, rustic cabin. The deck + fireplace right on the Pecos River was so dreamy. It felt very secluded and like going into another world, but it was very easy to get to and had lots of amenities. I loved all the charming details and appliances inside the house, it felt like a home with lots of character. You will need to be respectful of neighbors but there are lots of places to explore beyond the cabin. It's a real treat, and just outside of Santa Fe!

Adorable cabin right on the waterRelaxing on the deck looking out over the Pecos RiverThere is a big yard beside the cabin with places to sit and enjoy the spaceThe pathway along the river follows a fantastic tunnel through the brush.

This place was incredible. Gabriel and Ramona are extremely responsive, friendly hosts and made me feel like a priority. The cabin itself is super cozy, very well-kept, clean, beautifully decorated and located on a great property with access to a short trail along the Pecos River. If I ever have to come back to Santa Fe for anything, I'll definitely be booking Chameleon again.

We had a wonderful stay at the Chameleon cabin. Ramona and Gabriel were kind and helpful, always quick to respond to questions. The setting was sweet and peaceful. The cabin itself was clean and enjoyable. It provided a great anchor-spot to launch day trips from, and on the rainy day we decided to stay home and watch movies, it was a perfect place. This cabin is literally right on the banks of the Pecos River. We enjoyed seeing the river during the day, and the sound of it was soothing for us and our two-month old daughter at night. The river is a dwelling place for trout, and we saw fly-fishers wade by from time to time. It was an easy drive to Santa Fe, nearby national monuments, and the beautiful Santa Fe National Forest is just down the road. If you are looking for a rustic cabin in Northern New Mexico, we recommend Chameleon as a high option.

We just stayed at the lovely Chameleon cabin this past weekend. The hosts were super sweet. We arrived late Friday night so they turned on a light and the stove for us - it was warm & cozy when we arrived. The cabin is nice and comfortable, and right on the Pecos River. The location is great - we went to Pecos National Historical Park, Bandelier National Monument, Valles Caldera National Preserve, and Tent Rocks. We didn't really see anyone on the property until Sunday morning when we met Gabriel - he was super nice and had lots to share about the area. We would love to go back. Thank you!

The chameleon was a beautiful space for the weekend. Loved hearing the Pecos River when we woke up each morning.

We needed a break from the Albuquerque heat wave and a quick trip to Pecos was the perfect solution. Ramona and Gabriel were quick to respond and provided a warm welcome.
