Hawk's Nest Retreat House

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 3


Transport yourself into a tranquil world of mountain majesty at the Hawk’s Nest Retreat House. Boasting unparalleled 360 degree views of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains and Pecos Wilderness, this homebase is a sublime earthen temple from which to explore New Mexico’s rich landscape. The property consists of ten acres on a hilltop amongst a sea of trees adjacent to the 486-acre Hummingbird Ranch, a retreat center, which is dedicated to the evolution of consciousness. There are miles of wilderness to explore right from the front door, whether you desire heart-pounding hikes with steep elevation gains or relaxing strolls along leisurely walking paths.

The home sleeps 14 but can accommodate a gathering in the main living room for groups up to 20. The large kitchen has everything a chef would need, but, if you wish to spend your time exploring your surroundings, you may request three meals a day to be prepared for you with local, organic ingredients from the neighboring Hummingbird Ranch. With a hot tub, yoga and movement studio, and a crystal grid healing room (massages available) this is a truly curative environment that will provide a much needed reset from the cares of the outside world.
