Escape to the natural beauty of the Embudo River Valley in this private, quiet casita on a 5+ acre artist’s homestead in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. In summer, pick produce from the garden for your meals. Visit local wineries and the majestic Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, walk down to the river, or just relax on the patio and watch the sunset. Located in the village of Dixon, this is a great jumping off point for mountain hikes, visits to Ghost Ranch and Taos, or skiing in winter.

The Casita:
The approximately 900 square foot, straw bale casita is bermed into a hillside. The artist owned and decorated space features a modern aesthetic with rustic touches, a rotating collection of small-scale works of contemporary art, and a beautifully designed patio with unobstructed sunset views of the surrounding hills and mesas.

The Location:
Located in the historic village of Dixon, Bosque Cottage (pronounced “boss-kay,” this refers to the deciduous forest that lines the river) is a mini eco-retreat which includes the main house (in which the hosts live), a small art studio, a large vegetable garden, newly planted fruit trees, chickens, the casita, and a tiny house. The retreat is perfect for those seeking renewal, rest, and opportunities to reconnect with nature. The five-acre property is bordered on one end by the Embudo River, a mountain stream that feeds into the Rio Grande, and includes at least three distinct ecosystems: the high desert arroyo (dry river bed), the river, and the bosque. Through interactions with both the tended garden and wilder landscapes we hope a stay in the casita will inspire guests to appreciate the wonders of the natural world, the possibility of a more sustainable lifestyle, and human creativity.

Her skal du være

Dixon, New Mexico, USA

Dixon is a small, agricultural community famous for its orchards. The community is very diverse and peaceful. The Sipapu Ski Resort, a favorite of locals, is just 30 minutes away. About the same distance are areas good for sledding, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. The casita is just 25 minutes from Taos and a little over an hour from Santa Fe, and all of the cultural attractions these cities have to offer. Drive 20 minutes in another direction and you will be in the Sangre de Cristo mountains where opportunities for hiking, fishing, and enjoying nature abound. About one mile from the casita is the Dixon Co-op Market, a small but well-stocked grocery store and deli. The village has a restaurant, Zuly’s, which has excellent New Mexican food and a patio. There are three wineries very nearby, one within walking distance. Access to the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument (a.k.a., “the gorge”) is approximately 10 miles from Bosque Cottage and not to be missed.

We are a married couple who recently purchased the 5+ acre property, which we have dubbed Bosque Cottage, and who live full-time in the property’s main house. Inspired by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (of River Cottage fame), Wendel Berry, and many others who seek to produce more than they consume and grow some of their own food, we are in the beginning stages of developing our homestead and are constantly working to improve the property and our guests’ experiences. One small step at a time, we are working to create a mini eco retreat that renews guests by providing rest and access to nature through interactions with both the tended garden and wilder landscapes. We hope to create spaces that inspire guests to appreciate the wonders of the natural world, a more sustainable lifestyle, and human creativity. Our Airbnb guests are helping to make this dream a reality. You can follow our progress and see more pictures of the property and local activities on IG: we are @BosqueCottage. Bart is an artist and teaches painting and drawing at UNM. Rachel is a librarian at the local library. Both love gardening, cooking and eating, camping, fly fishing, hiking, and any time spent outdoors. We also have two friendly dogs, Cinna and Dot, who live at the main house on the property.
