What we like about this property

Set within the breathtaking high desert landscape made famous by Georgia O’Keeffe, this vacation home in New Mexico allows you to experience first hand what the artist translated so powerfully onto her canvases. With sublime scenery out every window, and just a few miles from O’Keeffe’s own Abiquiu home, this charming cottage has a fascinating history all its own.

Originally built as the library for the main house next door, the building’s sturdy stone and adobe construction preserves the original clerestory windows designed to accommodate bookshelves below and light the airy reading room turned abode. Thoughtfully restored to highlight the building’s rustic character, the cottage is a sweet and welcoming nest for one or two, decked out with charming vintage treasures that have sparked the Biblioteca back to life!

Description

Surrounded by vast and magical desert landscapes on over ten acres, this vacation home for rent in New Mexico sits within the land that inspired painter Georgia O’Keeffe’s masterworks. 

The unique cottage was originally a small library and has been restored and repurposed into an enchanting cottage made from stone and adobe connected by corrugated metal.

Although modest in size, the interiors feature high vaulted wood ceilings and multiple windows that let the sunlight in and frame the the desert views. Set up as a studio space the living room doubles as a bedroom and is connected directly to the amazing all-stone bathroom and dressing room (formerly a shed) through the added kitchen and dining area.

With a simplicity of form that’s inviting and uncomplicated, the home is intuitively laid out both inside and out.

A shaded porch overlooks the scenery where you can enjoy the peace and quiet and the stark beauty of the desert. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath amenities, private parking.

AROUND

A pilgrimage to Georgia O’Keefe’s home and studio in Abiquiu and nearby Ghost Ranch retreat is a must when visiting the northern Rio Arriba region of New Mexico. The twenty one thousand acre retreat and visitor center takes you into the canvases of O’Keeffe’s work during the early 20th century and continues on in tribute to her and the spectacular location with workshops in the arts, culture and nature, paleontology and archeological museums, and spectacular outdoor adventure. 

There are endless hiking trails to explore with many of the vistas made famous in O’Keeffe’s canvases including Cerro Pedernal, Plaza Bianca and Chimney Rock,  with table-topped mesas and towering cliffs where the Rio Chama snakes through the middle. It’s a twenty minute drive to nearby Abiquiu Lake for swimming, fishing, canoeing and cooling off in the summer months.  

Explore Santa Fe and Los Alamos under an hour south, and Taos an hour north with fabulous restaurants, antique shopping, Native American arts and crafts, and ancient ruins.

  • Kristen, December 26, 2019

    We spent eight days here in December and it was absolutely magical. We arrived in the cold night to a warm house lit by flickering fireplaces, and woke up the next morning to see the beautiful view of the mountain’s – including O’Keefe’s El Pedernal – from the back porch. We enjoyed making meals in the small kitchen, and exploring the hills in the surrounding area with our dog. It was a great base for exploring Santa Fe, Taos, and Ghost Ranch, as well as all the history and beauty of the immediately surrounding area. Lynn was a fantastic host – very responsive and helpful. If we are ever back in New Mexico, we will definitely try to stay here again.
