Come enjoy a piece of heaven in northeast New Mexico. Wonderful, peaceful, quiet setting. Located just outside of Raton - an absolute old-time jewel of a town. Be ready for seconds-long traffic jams of 2-3 cars around rush hour.
This is a large pool house nestled in a secluded canyon just north of Raton, NM; just a few scenic miles to the Colorado border. Remarkable views surround us. Pedazo de Cielo shares the neighborhood with lots of wildlife - birds, deer, bear, mountain lion, and the occasional fox. There is a queen bed, a double bed, double sleeper sofa, a pack-n-play for littles, and a loveseat and a full-sized sofas - all in the pool room.
The pool room has a salt-water swimming pool, with auto cover/safety lock. Pool heated for additional charge Oct-May - price dependent on length of stay. Great hot tub with tv and disco lights, wood burning fire place, as well as outdoor gas grill on the patio. Fire pit is allowed during times when burn-bans are not in effect, 52" TV. Kitchenette has microwave, toaster oven, roasting oven, toaster, hot pot, blender, full size side-by-side refrigerator, coffee makers, two hot plates, cooking utensils. Enjoy dining in or al fresco.
Sorry that I am no longer able to accept pets. The furfamily members don't understand the pool cover and have damaged it by running on it.
The huge shower has rain head with on-demand hot water heater.
Game area - lots of board games, cards, dominoes. Full size ping-pong table. Children's play area. Outdoor relaxing with umbrella tables. Star-gazing.
On-site hiking 31 acres. Lots of hiking trails in Raton and around local State lakes. Geocaching sites in area. Year-round fishing at local lakes. Ski slopes 1-1/2 hr away (Angel Fire, Red River, Taos). Lifts run 9 am to 4 pm.
Golf - 18 hole course in town. Be ready to play around wildlife. At sunset, it is awesome to watch the wild turkeys running/flying to their nests right off the 19th hole.
On-site parking, with 2 spaces inside (advised due to bears in area and no snow/ice on vehicles when heading out). Garage doors accomodate high clearance vehicles with overhead gear. Remote available.

My home is attached to the pool house, so 10 pm-ish would be a good quiet time. Smoking is allowed out of doors. I will be renting to you only. Should you need additional guests to be included (parties/reunions, etc), this will need to be addressed when reservation is made. Please cover the pool and hot tub when you go to bed, or when leaving property, as this helps conserve energy. If there are any questions, please ask.
Tried Airbnb and was immediately hooked. I travelec on a regular basis and got tired of hotels! Purchased my Piece of Heaven and wanted to share it with others! This is an ideal spot to relax, unwind, enjoy simple pleasures. Can't believe I've been blessed to live here full-time!
