We thought the area was beautiful, the cabin too was very nice. We were disappointed that the cabin was on the creek side, not the river side, we wanted to fish right off the cabin property but all in all everything was what we expected& Margo was very nice to deal with.
We enjoyed our short stay ate the Pecos River Cabin. It was nice to enjoy the cool weather and woods. Due to a knee and ankle injury we weren't able to hike or walk the banks of the river but enjoying the quite was fantastic. Being "chair" bound gave us the opportunity to watch many movies in the cabin. We hope to return soon.
We stayed for a week and it was wonderful! We caught lots of trout and did some beautiful hiking. The cabin is well stocked and comfortable. We saw wildlife in the yard in the evenings and hummingbirds are everywhere! A fire pit for the cool evenings and a full shower would have been nice but we had an amazing stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Pecos River Cabin. The cabin is very comfortable and the host Margo has provided many amenities and oddiments to make the stay pleasant and interesting.
While a small TV and many DVDs are provided, I don't see why anyone would want to watch TV with all the natural beauty outside. Everyone if there is a blizzard, it would be more rewarding to read one of the interesting books available in the cabin.
Sleeping under the skylight is interesting since there is a view of the starry sky and no sleeping in in the morning.
The wifi works well but not fast enough for Netflix, but why would you want to do this in the cabin.
Take care with the high altitude. Even after a day of acclimation, my wife got very sick while hiking on the mountain trail at 9100 feet. The forest is beautiful, but take care about your safety, particularly since the cabin is already 8 miles from cell service, and the hiking paths are several times further away than that.
This cabin is a dream-come true. It is just perfect. They have it stocked with everything you need for a wonderful time, minus food. The kitchen has all pots, pans, cooking, baking and serving supplies. It is as quaint as can be. It is furnished modestly, but tastefully. There are a lot of nice touches, such as candles, pictures, books, movies, etc. In fact, they have a great supply of movies - some for families, kids and adults to just relax.
The master bed sits under a window, so you can see the stars while sleeping and if it is warm enough, you can open the window and hear the river. The same is for the window over the bathtub. They provide shampoo, condition, etc ... so just come with your clothes and some food ... enjoy! There are even candles to surround the bathtub for a soak.
The cabin has character and charm. We were there when it snowed and the stove kept the place as cozy as ever.
We cannot wait to visit in the summer, as I am sure it will have a completely different feel and we will enjoy the trees in their beauty and the birds.
I recommend this place 100% ... but don't want to compete with other visitors ... ha ha.
Hope this review helps you decide to visit this "little piece of heaven" in the mountains of NM ... beautiful skies, sounds and the footprint of God.
