We are responsible, respectful human beings, and we simply ask the same of our guests. That, and to truly enjoy the amazingly beautiful surroundings. While we invite our guests to enjoy our great views from the upstairs deck, and the patio, pond and waterfalls in back, we would prefer they take advantage of one of the local, or in-town, eateries for all of their meals, except for a nice continental-style breakfast in the morning. There's nothing quite like sitting on our upstairs deck overlooking the Sandia mountain range first thing in the morning with a steaming cup of espresso in hand, or enjoying a late night glass of wine in the same location, or around our pond and waterfall, a fire roaring in the fire pit.
