Horseshoe Meadow is an 8+ acre homestead established in 1897 along the Rio San Antonio in La Cueva in the Jemez Mountains. Horseshoe Meadow borders the Santa Fe National Forest and comprises meadows, wetlands, old-growth Ponderosa pines, a 1 ac. lake and a stream flowing through the property.

The recently remodeled Lake House was built in the 1950s and overlooks the 1 ac. lake at the south end of Horseshoe Meadow. The Lake House is now available for vacation rental. At the north end of the property there are two over 100 year-old log cabins. One of the log cabins will be offered for rental in the near future.

Guests can enjoy exploring the surrounding woods, mountains, mesas and valleys or spend the day relaxing along the 600 ft. long stretch of the Rio San Antonio running through Horseshoe Meadow.

There are a country store and a restaurant 1.2 miles down the road in La Cueva. Cell phone service is limited and spotty.

In the near future, the property will also be available for weddings and corporate gatherings.

The surrounding Santa Fe National Forest with its mountains, mesas, cliffs, valleys, meadows, hot and warm springs, streams and tall pines offers ample opportunities to engage in activities such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing, and much more.

Valles Caldera NP

The Valles Caldera NP with plenty of recreational and educational opportunities is just a few miles away. Bandelier National Monument with its Anasazi ruins, Jemez Springs, Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Albuquerque with their museums, shopping opportunities, and historical plazas and sites, and many other attractions along the roads can be explored on day trips. There are quite a few dirt roads throughout the Jemez open in the summer months (some of which are better driven in a 4×4 vehicle) to take more adventurous drivers into the back-country for further explorations.


IMG_2244Cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing are favorite winter activities in the Jemez Mountains and at the Valles Caldera NP during the often sunny winter months. The Pajarito Ski Area offers some great downhill skiing and more cross-country skiing trails and is a 30 mile-drive away.
