These are representative comments that our guests so graciously left us in our guest book – we could not have described the Rinconada Rio Grande Retreat experience any better!


Mid-April Guests
The activities were endless, I’m not sure we were even able to experience all the adventures we could in one week, but we all leave here with a new sense of peace and renewal to our minds and hearts. We are looking forward to the next week full of campfires and beautiful views and sounds here….

The house is perfect and more than we expected. The websites don’t do justice to the home and the beautiful views. The flowers are in full bloom and we took lots of pictures of hummingbirds and butterflies. We hope to come back….. When Angie first suggested a vacation home, I wasn’t to sure, but this experience has been wonderful. My camera has been a permanent extension of my right hand.

The house is gorgeous, the pictures on your website don’t do it justice. I’m so glad we decided to stay here. This is the loveliest place by far….We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we look forward to coming back next year.

The entire place is beautiful, both luxurious and comfortable. Our daughters just loved the bedrooms. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed the river, the beautiful scenery and hiking up the arroyo to the top. We explored the entire area and found everywhere stunning. It’s always hard to know if you made the right choice – I know we did.

We loved the river: fishing in it, looking at it, listening to it. The canopy of the trees was wonderful to sit beneath and look up at thousands of stars peeking through. We are looking forward to visiting again, ASAP. We appreciated all the special touches-the lovely bedding, towels, cookware, etc. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we’ve had.

Mid-July Guests
In the words of Bill and Ted, we have had a “most excellent adventure.” Your home has been very accommodating to five guys celebrating a lifetime of friendship. The atmosphere is relaxing and beautiful. There were plenty of activities to keep us busy, but most important was a location to relax and reconnect.

We have had a wonderful week and will always remember it fondly. Our boys loved riding the rapids behind your home on floaties, and everyone loved the hot tub! Your home is beautiful and comfortable. We felt right at home.

Early-Mid August Guests
Rinconada Retreat was the perfect place to celebrate milestone 60 (yrs) with longtime dear friends. Hiking…rafting…visiting pueblos…Everyone became a gourmet chef with your well-supplied kitchen. Through it all ran the river, generously re-supplied by Mother Nature every afternoon with awesome, splendid rain storms.

Early-September Guests
We loved our special four days with you in and on the river, hiking, special meals here and on Outlaw Hill will be in our memories for a long, long time.

Early-October Guests
Your place is superb and has every conceivable amenity; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Edwin caught (and released) several fish; we saw a 6-point buck at dusk and we had some beautiful rides in the countryside….especially enjoyed the selection of cooking utensils and paraphernalia – possibly the best-equipped kitchen of any place we’ve ever rented..

Northern New Mexico is truly a vacation experience, and to be able to enjoy it in your beautiful home gave us a memorable holiday.

Late-December Guests
Wow! We were so excited as we walked in the door, what a lovely place this is. Everyone should see this place under a blanket of white. Thank you for providing such a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing home. We will be back.
