Beschrijving

Info over de woning

Een slaapkamer beneden, futon boven, complete badkamer.

The Tower Guest House ligt in het centrum van een kleine werkende (maar rustige) knoflookboerderij (plus uien en sjalotjes), op een rustige met katoenhout omzoomde laan die langs de Embudo-rivier loopt, anderhalve kilometer van het centrum van de dorp van Dixon, met zijn full-service coop supermarkt en een bibliotheek. Weg van de snelweg, en omringd door de geluiden van de rivier 100 yards naar het zuiden, de locatie is buitengewoon rustig. De tweede verdieping dek nodigt gasten uit om te zonnen, eten, grill, lezen en genieten van zonsondergangen en zonsopkomsten.

Lees er eerst alles over: eigenaar Stanley Crawford heeft drie boeken geschreven over het leven dat hij en zijn vrouw RoseMary in de Embudo-vallei hebben geleid als boeren en gemeenschapsactivisten: MAYORDOMO: KRONIEK VAN EEN ACQUA IN NOORD-NIEUWE MEXICO; en EEN KNOFLOOKTESTAMENT: SEIZOENEN OP EEN KLEINE NIEUWE MEXICO-BOERDERIJ; en een RIVIER IN DE WINTER: NIEUWE EN GESELECTEERDE ESSAYS, allemaal gepubliceerd door de University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. Zie ook het artikel van de New York Times van Anne Raver in het nummer van 14 juli 2011.

Frisse middag: hoewel het klimaat in Noord-New Mexico relatief droog is, is er de meeste jaren genoeg water in de nabijgelegen Rio Embudo om een ​​verfrissende middagdip te nemen - of in de Rio Grande op de National Monument-camping op acht mijl afstand - of in de verder gelegen Abiquiu, El Vado of Heron Lakes. En in de winter, naast skiën in het nabijgelegen Sipapu, is er zowel de Taos en Santa Fe ski bekkens.

Ouderwetse charme: The Tower Guest House on Small Working Organic Garlic Farm

Wonderful place, great access to local attractions

  • 5 of 5

The tower is small but super homey and comfy. We stayed in January so it was chilly (about 17 degrees in the early morning), but the place heated up nicely during the day and the fan in the top level helped to distribute heat throughout. While Stan's house is close, he's a discrete host and gives you your privacy. It is somewhat of a tradition to have a coffee or glass of wine during your stay and he's got some great stories to tell. During our stay, Stan had two blue heelers, both of whom are good farm dogs but will allow you to give them a scratch behind the ears before they wander off to their important farm duties. In addition to farming garlic and other delicious veggies, Stan is an author of some repute and it's certainly worth it to check out his writings for a real feel of life in Northern NM. I recommend Mayordomo and Village.

For all its seclusion, the place is close to Hwy 75, which goes up to Penasco and on to Sipapu Ski resort - which features a homey and accessible lodge, great staff and good slopes for beginners as well as more challenging ones for the more experienced snowboarders and skiers.

We slept in the downstairs bedroom, which is small but cozy and quiet. There was ample hot water for both of us and a small washer/dryer combo to do a little laundry mid-trip. The upstairs has a kitchen area (European-style stove top and half-fridge & microwave) with pots, pans and utensils to use during your stay in addition to both a coffee press and coffee maker (as well as a grinder) so if you want to have a meal "at home," you have enough equipment to take care of yourself. The top level is accessible via a spiral staircase so if you have mobility issues this may prove difficult to navigate.

The place is an extremely short drive into Dixon proper (3-5 minutes), featuring a co-op that sells local produce and crafts as well as a small but decent selection of groceries. The library and community center often have events going on and if you are there during the summer/fall you can catch a small farmers market and other activities. The wineries (La Chiripada and Vivac) are open year round and you can do wine tasting at both. Both are run by life-long locals and both have enough variety in their offerings that it's worth it to check out both. Zuly's is a small restaurant run by locals, offering some great NM-style food and coffee - but not open year round.

Highly recommended and we'll definitely go back!

We Had the Time of our Lives!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Crawford's adorable tower property 4 nights in early September this year. We were only suppose to stay 3, but fell so in love with Crawfords, that we extended our stay by a night. The farm is located on a quiet lane that runs alongside the Embudo River, and we took several hikes down a "secret" pathway to experience its charm. One lovely day we brought chairs and a few Coronas and sat in the river relaxing in the water and absorbing the beauty.

We had a number of easy conversations with the Crawfords over our stay. They are quite an interesting pair, and make you feel right at home. Mrs. Crawford is a vivacious woman and Mr. Crawford is a friendly man, with a twinkle in his eye. They are a hardworking team and I grew to consider them the Queen and King of Dixon, and I'm sure the town folks would agree. Having moved there in the 1960s they have done so much to make Dixon the quaint, organic farming community it is today.

If you are not in the mood for cooking, Sugars BBQ is a few miles off SR 68, and serves delicious food (although they are not open every day, so check their sign for hours). Zuly's Café serves yummy breakfasts and lunches and uses locally grown produce. We enjoyed going there, and we met several friendly locals, drinking coffee and chatting with them up about the area. There is also a co-op market with locally grown produce, wines, cheeses, deli goods, and about anything needed to cook a good meal.

There are many beautiful drives to choose from so pick a direction and be blown away by the magnificence. There are two wineries within the community (but I found La Chiripada by far the best). Dixon is a 25 minute drive to Taos and close to Espanola and Santa Fe as well, so if you tire of the solitude and want to visit galleries, restaurants or people watch, it is not far out of reach. There's also several river rafting outfits nearby, and there's even a small brewing company with some tasty craft beers.

The cost of staying at Bosque Garlic Farm is extremely inexpensive for how amazing it is. The tower that they built, mostly themselves, has lots of windows and is attractive and comfy. We slept in the bedroom downstairs, and the upstairs, living area, is cozy, too, with hardwoods and a futon sofa that would easily sleep 2, as well. There's a sweet, sweet deck that we spent many hours on, talking and star gazing, drinking our coffee in the mornings, and looking out on the beautiful flowers a

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Tower is a sweet spot on this planet -nestled in among the rows of lettuce and basil- overlooking the country road that saunters by the river. It has everything you need including generous touches from the Crawfords, like fresh eggs in the fridge (from the family chickens), and more. Writers, they're are sensitive to one's desire for quietude yet openly available for good conversation and laughs. The perfect place one dreams of going for regeneration, relaxation, insight and remembering (or learning) what it's like to live a rich life of simplicity.

One of the most wonderful places in the world!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful little tower was our honeymoon spot in May 2011 and we loved every minute. Dixon is a great, quiet little town with all the basic groceries (not-so-basic groceries, and a drugstore, were only about 20 minutes away in Espanola or Taos), an art gallery, and a yummy restaurant called Zuly's about a two-minute drive from The Tower. Even more fun were the wineries we visited (La Chiripada was our favorite!). There is high-speed internet, so if you don't have a GPS, you can easily map out directions to wherever you want to go before you leave The Tower. We found that Santa Fe was about half an hour to 45 minutes away, and Taos was even closer but in the opposite direction. The house is clean and smooth and full of light and color - no oven, but we grilled everything we needed to and microwaved the leftovers. The owners are very nice - they gave us fresh produce and fresh eggs from their farm (they don't JUST grow garlic!) and had us up for tea one evening. They are an interesting, fascinating couple who are very easy to work with. We drove to the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge one day, and went hiking in Taos Ski Valley the next. Scenery is amazing and the weather in May was perfect (70s, very low humidity). One of our favorite days was spent wandering around Taos, then hearing about a local ice creamery and going to Arroyo Seco (a little town right outside Taos) to find it. It was THE best ice cream we've ever tasted. We wished we had had longer to stay because we never did get to go fishing in the Embudo (which is beautiful right across the driveway from the Tower) or explore along the Rio Grande. You do have to drive through the Rio Grande Gorge to get to Dixon, which was always a breathtaking experience for us. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet vacation where they can plan each day as it comes, making it as adventurous or chill as they want. Two people was a good number for this rental, as the bed downstairs was a full and the futon upstairs only had one comfortable side. We would go back in a heartbeat - the location was perfect!

De Tower Guest House at Crawfords Garlic Farm is gelegen in het Embudo Valley, in de uitlopers van de Sangre de Cristo Range, een en een halve mijl van het centrum van de traditionele Spaanse dorp Dixon. Dixon is bekend om zijn kunsten en ambachten, en is een goede uitvalsbasis om nabijgelegen rivieren en canyons zoals de Rio Grande Gorge verkennen. Taos is 25 mijl naar het noorden, Santa Fe 50 mijl ten zuiden; beide zijn belangrijke culturele en artistieke centra. De regio staat bekend om zijn Indiase Pueblos en ruïnes, allemaal makkelijk te rijden afstand.
