Pinecone Canyon Hideaway is on the east side of the Sandia Mountains, just thirty minutes from the Albuquerque airport and 45 minutes from Santa Fe via the historic Turquoise Trail. We welcome outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers of all backgrounds, interests and ages to our quiet retreat. We're honored to share with you a chance to relax, restore and enjoy nature at its best in our beloved mountain home.
With easy access to miles of Cibola National Forest trails, this home is perfect those who like to hike, birdwatch, or just spend quiet time in the mountains. Nearby Madrid, Cerrillos or Santa Fe are easy day trips along the Turquoise Trail, though there is plenty to explore right in the Sandia Park, Cedar Crest and Tijeras neighborhoods, or pop into Albuquerque for an urban Southwestern experience.
There's big yard in and amongst tall ponderosa pines and cedars to wander and enjoy. Feel free to use the outdoor gas grill for evening at home, as well as outdoor dining table and four chairs.
Guests will have a number to call for assistance from our sister who is right next door. She and her right-hand gal are fix-it, problem-solving, champions. You're in good hands.
Please note: this house is at 7200 ft., something to be aware of if you're arriving from lower altitudes. With thinner oxygen supply comes clarity and great lung exercise but for your first day slow and steady is advised.
Also, conservative water use is the name of the game for mountain living. Our well and septic system will appreciate your respect, i.e. no long showers or letting water run for long periods of time. We also ask that you not flush paper products of any kind, including toilet paper.
