La Lomita, Quiet Hide-Away, Big Sky, Northern NM Food, Spa, Ski, Hike, Raft

Riverside Holiday home with kitchen and patio
La Lomita is located in the area where La Familia Valdez has a 300 year history. La Lomita was conceived, designed and built with hospitality and spirituality in mind. It is a place of healing and rest, of relaxing and dreaming, of renewal. It holds mystery in the howling coyotes, the whispering junipers, the shifting arroyos, and the colorful wildlife. Bienvenidos! Nuestra casa es su casa.

Read our wonderful reviews and let our many guests describe the La Lomita experience. (See review section)

Nestled into the Black Mesa, La Lomita is the hub surrounded by Abiquiu to the northwest, Ojo Caliente and Taos to the north, Chimayo to the east, and Española and Santa Fe to the south, all with local art and food just 10 to 55 minutes away. It is 12 miles from the relaxing mineral springs and spa at Ojo Caliente, and 30 minutes from Los Alamos and Bandalier National Monument.

The spectacular Santa Fe Opera is 30 minutes away, as is its neighbor, the Santa Fe Flea Market with treasures made by 'artesanos' from Mexico, Guatemala and other native areas (open in Spring and Summer).

On the way to Taos, via the High Road through Truchas or the route along the Rio Grande through Velarde with the Black Mesa Winery, you will find beautiful scenery and native Hispano-made tin work, retablos, santos, and weaving from traditions begun hundreds of years ago.

River rafting in the Rio Grande or floating over the river gorge in a hot air balloon, are adventures waiting for all ages, as are the ski trails and golf courses, all in close proximity to La Lomita.

Stay at home and climb the Black Mesa, part of our 9 acre 'back yard', and if you reach the top (about 45 minutes of spectacular climbing), wander across the top of the Mesa and see the Rio Grande flowing below. Or grab your easel and paints, camera or writing pad, and capture the breath-taking, mountain scenes all around you. Need to relax? Try tai-ch, yoga or gentle walking around our juniper, piñon and desert-flowered landscape, and let the many visiting songbirds lull you into a peaceful siesta.

Keywords: On 9 acres, solar adobe home with covered portal (porch) facing the Jemez mountains, designed with quiet and the spiritual in mind. The terrain, including the mesa high above the house, suggests privacy. ¡Se habla español!

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic home and property! Views are terrific and hummingbirds present
Easy! Very satisfied.

4/5 Good

Wifi confusion but worth every penny
It took a day to find out the password for the wifi was on the modem in the smaller bedroom so we had no phone or email without going into town and when they say get there before dark that was even after finding it before dinner and trying to find it again after going to dinner, no joke...Hummingbirds were amazing and using the feeders they were near us and had fascinating territorial rituals. It was a little warm even at night but still nice. The sand was really soft/fine and fun to walk in. The home was beautiful and their hosting was great after the confusion about how to get the wifi password was sorted out. They clearly want their guests to have the best time possible and their neighbor/ambassador was very helpful.
