A sense of serenity is pervasive as you wind your way through the compound.

Additional Location Information

The town of Carson, NM, (village is more like it), consists of about 150 residents, a general store, a post office, and a fire department. The three miles of dirt roads to the retreat are passable year-round and give the feeling that you are 'out there'. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended in the snow and in the springtime mud. Although television is non-existent and cell service is sketchy, there is WiFi at the Main House, (soon to be optic fiber sometime in '14), as well as a land line. If you'd like some off-site adventure, Taos is 40 minutes away, and Santa Fe is about an hour and a half. The Ski Valley is one hour door-to-door, and Ojo Caliente Spa and Mineral Springs are within a 25 minutes. You can visit ancient Indian cliff dwellings, hike in the mountains or on the mesa, and river-raft in the Rio Grande Gorge. We also can recommend guided hikes, trips to natural hot springs along the river, yoga classes on site, and even some good local entertainment.
