Historic and fabulous.
Constructed with stone floors, beautiful adobe walls and wooden ceilings, Rabbit house has a wonderfully earthy, authentic vibe. Rabbit was originally built with just a few rooms and was added onto over a number of years, as were many older New Mexican houses. Lacking modern construction machinery to level the ground under an entire house, each additional room was built at ground level, with steps going up or down as needed.
The living room is three steps down from the entry and the kitchen, a couple of steps down from the bedrooms—two of which were created from a much older, smaller building that was here at least as early as the first decade of the 1900s.
Rabbit has a spacious, well furnished living room with game table and TV; a laundry with washer and dryer and large, fully-equipped kitchen with eating space for six. Rabbit has two king bedrooms, one queen bedroom and a sleeper-sofa in the living room. Two full baths. Sleeps 6-8.
The kitchen opens into a spacious walled patio across the path from the sunken garden and the rabbit warren.
It is cooled by an evaporative cooler and is centrally heated in winter. Rabbit has a wood-burning fireplace.
We cannot recommend this piece of Heaven enough!
"We have been to Rancho Jacona many times since discovering it four years ago. Like others, we have been there as a couple, with family and friends, and hosted my mother's 80th birthday reunion there. We have never, ever had a bad experience there. We have been there in May, August, December, and will be back in the very near future. Each season offers something different. The peonies in May are fantastic and not to be missed! There is nothing more peaceful than Ranco Jacona under a layer of snow at Christmas. The staff is exceptional, the assorted animal 'greeters' beyond friendly, and the views spectacular. We cannot recommend this piece of Heaven enough! Which brings another problem....we are looking for a place to buy in the area and nothing compares to Rancho Jacona!!!"
