What is The Ojo?

Simply, 116 acres of riparian and desert landscape in the Ojo Caliente Valley, the heart of northern New Mexico!

WE HOST GROUPS !

What kind of groups come here?

We attract a variety of folks who want a land based experience. We are all about Place and the roll it plays in helping humans become grounded. People who have visited here have come for vision quests, sweat lodges, Walkabouts, yoga, personal work of various kinds and simple reflection, and more. The Ojo is set amidst an amazing northern New Mexico landscape of water and sculptured desert, mountains and mesas. We seek groups who are not looking for a retreat center, but rather, are looking for a unique Place where they can find connection to earth. On The Ojo, our goal is to facilitate your stay so that the group can focus on their own special needs.
 

The land is wildlife friendly, home to a diverse number of bird and animal species. And, there is a wild river running through it! The camping area extends along the river and can accommodate up to 20 tents. Included in the nightly group rate is The Ojo Cabin, a cozy retreat cabin that sleeps two adults in a single bed. 

Our 26 foot Hogan, built with love, is there for your group to use as needed.

Cooking is done in our dining/cooking pavilion. There is free high speed wi-fi available in the pavilion. Two showers, one seasonal, have unlimited hot water.  Full kitchen and two refrigerators make cooking easy.  We do not allow cooking elsewhere on the land.
The Ojo is classic New Mexico cottonwood/willow Bosque and our land extends to the top of nearby Black Mesa, 1000 feet above the valley floor. The spectacular Shadow Mountain Trail is about 1.5 miles long and the hike rewards you with amazing views of the surrounding countryside.

The Ojo abuts incredible desert badlands in the adjacent BLM lands to the west. Various trails make moving through the Bosque and desert easy. There are beavers in our little river too!

We have a ceremonial tipi, permission needed for use, and a wonderful classic seven ring labyrinth. We are located only 45 minutes from Santa Fe, an hour to Taos, 30 minutes to Abiqui and in the heart of a landscape that has everything for the active, from mountain biking to white water rafting. Oh yeah...we are also only ten minutes from Ojo Caliente Hot Spring and Spa.


Don't hesitate to find out if this place is the RIGHT place for your group!
