Tucked into the trees.
Raccoon house was built in the late 1800s as “the Girls’ House”. It was customary in large families, when children became adolescent to build a separate house for the girls and another for the boys—as far apart as possible. Originally only one large room with privy out back, it was added to over the decades, ending up as a laundry house in the 80s.
The laundry room is now a brightly tiled complete kitchen; the bathroom is updated, the large original room serves both as living and sleeping space with one queen “Murphy” style bed and two, single built in bunks. Forget unfortunate memories of jangly, uncomfortable Murphy style beds. This one is excellent!
During the day, guests have a spacious living room with game table, TV, VCR and fireplace. The house sleeps two to four. In winter it has its own heating system. Raccoon overlooks an arroyo to the west and has a lovely southern patio under beautiful cottonwoods. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a washer and dryer.
Raccoon sleeps 2-4.
Rancho Jacona is a very special place - completely unique in my extensive travel experience.
"Rancho Jacona is a very special place - completely unique in my extensive travel experience. It is part-resort, part-vacation home rental, and part-working farm. It has something for everyone. Our toddler loved visiting the animals (and when the peacocks came to visit us!). The adults loved taking walks around the property to see the gardens and sculptures. We all loved the pool and the well-stocked kitchens and living rooms. The proximity to Santa Fe is great too as it gave us another destination to enjoy. But we really loved just being together in this lovely setting, making nice dinners, grilling, playing games together. Wonderful family time. I was surprised to see the previous reviewers complaints about flies. There were no more insects at Rancho Jacona that you'd see at any rural location. We just loved our whole stay!"
