The vibe at Oasis in the Desert
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Oasis in the Desert is a lovely passive solar adobe casita with artistic touches throughout. It's a perfect spot to get away, yet a quick drive to all that Santa Fe offers. The casita is quaint, but airy due to all the windows. It's perfect for individuals or couples, and although there is an optional air mattress, it might be cramped for more than a couple people. It's located along the Turquoise Trail, a scenic byway connecting Albuquerque + Santa Fe, and only about 9 miles from the charming + eccentric artists' town of Madrid. The casita itself is well appointed with a comfy bed, nice shower + everything you'd need in the small kitchenette. Great views of the Northern New Mexican landscape + hiking right from the casita. Brenda is a welcoming host, and gave me a tour of everything she does at Mother's Farm Camp. In addition to hosting a children's day camp during the summer months, she has horses, a large organic garden and raises Golden Retrievers. The dogs made some occasional noise during the night, so light sleepers be advised. I always pack earplugs when I'm traveling, and was fine. I'd love to stay for a month-long artist retreat-- this would be the perfect place. She plans to add a Tipi to the property in the future, so I'll be on the lookout for that!
