Hello! We are Carolyn and Tom Calfee, owners of The Casita del Lago. We are parents to three awesome kids who are now young adults, which means we are now empty-nesters! Tom is a wealth management financial advisor and Carolyn recently retired from the financial industry. We are active people - love hiking, skiing, running (well, we don’t love that but we do it), taking motorcycle rides, and we both just got certified in scuba diving.
We found the most beautiful spot on planet earth back in 2010 - we couldn’t believe land surrounded by a lake, a river, million-year-old red rocks, and Pedernal was for sale. We purchased our land that very night. Eventually we built The Casita del Lago on the lakefront property and we absolutely love every minute we are there. We also deeply appreciate and respect the history and culture of the area.
Today, we share the beauty and magic of the Land of Enchantment with others by renting out our home and enabling others to experience this incredible location…if you haven’t seen the sun rise or set over Abiquiu Lake and the red rocks, or, if you haven’t experienced an absence of noise and light pollution - then, well, you’ve missed the best part of Abiquiu.
We have met people from all over the world who have discovered The Casita del Lago on Abiquiu Lake. Honestly, we are frequently surprised by how many people know about the little village of Abiquiu…how a couple in Australia heard about our home or why a guest from Spain would choose our home so he could swim (train) in Abiquiu Lake every morning. Meeting our guests - who quickly become part of our Casita del Lago family - is the best part of this experience. We pride ourselves in setting an example as honest, ethical hosts who want every guest to have a perfect experience. Because of this, we have a high rate of return guests.
And this is why we continue to rent out our home: meeting new friends; the positive stories, reviews, and pictures; and guests who never want to leave at the end of their stay - that is the beauty of the vacation rental journey.
