Tucked behind the Dixon Plaza, and situated directly above the Acequia de la Plaza, the Long House is one of the true gems in Dixon. Built in the 1700s and lovingly renovated in the 1990s, the Long House offers a unique and historic experience in the heart of Dixon. Centrally located off the Dixon Plaza, you'll be a five minute walk to the Coop, library, post office, and Zuly's Cafe. It's a great place to relax and enjoy Dixon and as a home base to venture and explore northern NM.

7/15/20 Update:
Due to covid 19, orders given for people to stay home and my concern for my family and the communities of northern New Mexico, I have made some changes. Since access to testing is a challenge and the symptoms can mimic the flu, if you or anyone in your party are sick in any way prior to your arrival date, or if you have come in contact with anyone who has tested positive for covid 19, or if you are traveling from a hot spot or state where covid 19 is rapidly re-surging, please do not attempt to make a reservation at this time. The governor has ordered a 14 day self quarantine for anyone travelling from out of state to NM, and everyone is required to wear masks when they are out in public. There is a $100 fine for not wearing one. State parks are now closed to everyone except NM residents.
I've also removed the Instant Book option so that I have the option to connect with you prior to accepting a reservation. I increased the minimum stay to 14 days with a day blocked out on either side of each reservation. The extra day will allow for the additional cleaning and disinfecting that is recommended in between guests. Guests should still reach out to the caretakers prior to their arrival date, but face to face interactions with the guests will be kept to a minimum and phone calls and texts with the caretakers should be used. Since the washer and dryer are in the caretakers' living space, I've removed access to it to protect them and their space. Please refer to the NM Governor's orders regarding that status of what can and should not be done during the time of your visit.
While some businesses have temporarily closed, the Coop and Sugar Nymphs have remained open and are offering pick up and curb side options so you can get what you need. Call ahead to any of the places nearby to find out if they're open and their hours of operation.

Having recently traveled to Europe and Canada, and having stayed in airbnb listed apartments managed by hosts who manage many properties with minimally equipped kitchens with sparse furnishings, I realized that the airbnb experience of being a guest in someone's home is becoming less common. The Long House was my mom's house, where my family and I have gathered since the early 90's. I built the Addition on the back of the Long House where she painted and practiced her photography and entertained friends and family from the area and all over the world. In that spirit, I have opened up my family home to the airbnb community. I am proud to let you know that this is my home and I live here too! The art and the furnishings and the kitchen (without a microwave!) are the way that I want it because I return each year with my family for extended stays. I work on the house and the property so that you too can enjoy being in this special place!

New for 2019, I'm super excited to share that I laid flagstone on the back patio! I bought 4 tons of Colorado red flagstone from my friend Mark Saxe at Southwest Stoneworks, just up the road in Rinconada, and worked on leveling the ground and installing the flagstone. I've wanted to lay flagstone on the back patio for a very long time and I'm so happy that I had the time this year to get it done.

In 2017, I replaced the kitchen countertops with granite and an undermount sink and new pulldown faucet, added a great, new sectional couch with lots of pillows and other new furniture, more lighting and floor coverings, and a new refrigerator to make the Long House even more comfortable and inviting! Check out the photos to see the new countertop, sectional couch and comfy chair in the living room, and all new photos of the rest of the house.

Time spent at the Long House is the kind of quality time that we so rarely get elsewhere. The thick, adobe walls help to keep the house quiet and cool in the summer and warm in the winter. As there is rarely any traffic by the house, you will be amazed at how quiet it is. This summer, we awoke to the sounds of the Rio Embudo as there is still snow runoff rushing down the valley. The acequias are full, and the sounds of the wind and the rain and the thunder greeted us every day.

The front porch is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee and to greet the neighbors on their morning walk. The back porch is my favorite spot as the house is perched above the acequia and the lower fields that run to the river. The expansive view of the Dixon valley and the hills beyond is an inspiration. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are always a treat on the back patio table. The beauty of being in Dixon is that time seems to move more slowly. A walk up to the Co-op for some food or a little bit farther to La Chiripada Winery to get a bottle of wine for dinner is enough to break up a perfect day spent enjoying time being at home. Our neighbor's dog, Romeo, loves to make the rounds in the evening and will often stop by to say hello! He's super friendly and loves a good scratch by his tail. He's getting older now, and unfortunately is no longer able to control his bowels, so keep an eye out for him and his droppings!

Named after its construction, the Long House was built by adding one room at a time from east to west in the 1700s. As the original family expanded and grew, another room was added next to the last room built. Room to room access used to be through doors that opened to the exterior, as there were no doors between rooms until much later. You’ll find that each room still has a door that opens to the exterior (except the bathroom), although the yoga room’s old exterior door now opens into the sunroom, which I added in the 1990s.

Unique and lovingly renovated, the Long House encompasses 1800 square feet of living space and boasts traditional vigas with split cedar and rough cut, plank ceilings, 2.5’ thick adobe walls with traditional mud plaster on the exterior, and diamond point plaster on the interior walls. The secluded back porch area offers a wonderful setting for meals and a gorgeous view of the Dixon valley and Rio Embudo, while the front porch offers a wonderful view of the sunsets. As someone who loves to cook, the full kitchen has everything you'll need, including a new natural gas stove with oven, coffee grinder and maker, toaster oven, blender, frig/freezer and all the cooking utensils and pans you’ll need to enjoy a home cooked meal. A microwave you will not find, though.

The master bedroom has a king size, Sleep Number bed, with a new, gel foam mattress topper, a wood stove to take off the chill, and private access to the back porch. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, private access to the front porch, and connects directly to the yoga/meditation room (with yoga mats included) and the adobe sunroom added onto the front side of the yoga room. The entire house is heated with radiant and baseboard heat, and each room has its own thermostat (except for the sunroom). The bathroom features a clawfoot bath tub for long, slow baths and modified for showers too.

If you need to do laundry, the washer/dryer are located in the Addition, where my caretakers live. Just coordinate with the Gabrielle or Noel and they'll give you access to the laundry.

Accès des voyageurs
Guests will have access to the entire Long House which includes; the master and second bedrooms, living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom, yoga/meditation room, sunroom, and the front and back porches. The caretaker lives in the adjacent Addition and will also sometimes use the back patio access to her residence.

Autres points à prendre en note
While Dixon is an 1:50 hrs from ABQ, 60 minutes from Santa Fe, and about 25 minutes to Espanola and Taos, Dixon is a great place to explore and enjoy northern New Mexico.

Please note that there is a step down between the master bedroom and livingroom/kitchen, the kitchen and the bathroom, and the west bedroom and meditation/yoga room.

If you're arriving from the south, Trader Joe's is a great place to stock up on your way to Dixon. And if by chance you're coming from the north, I'd recommend Cid's and Smiths for food and essentials.

In Dixon, the Coop is located just up the main road, about a five-minute walk from the house. They have all of the basics, and a new deli counter with the best pizza in town. The library next door has free wifi, classes, and guest speakers. I have a library card for Long House guest to be able to check out books and movies. Just let them know you're staying at the Long House and be sure to return your books and movies before you depart.

The wifi can stream your streaming movie/tv account, but there is no cable service. We never end up watching tv when we're here and instead listen to the local Dixon radio station, KLDK, play our favorite CDs and end up talking and laughing late into the night with our friends and family!

Farther up the road past the library is my favorite winery, La Chiripada with an awesome selection of local wines. My favorite restaurant is Sugar Nymphs in Penasco, just about a 15-20 minute ride east on Hwy 75. For something quick and local, Zuly’s Café is just past the library on the left on Hwy 75, but check their hours because they often close for extended periods. If you’re in the mood to try some delicious, local made beer, head over to Blue Heron Brewery on Hwy 68 in Rinconada, just five minutes from the Long House. Feel free to use the Blue Heron Brewery growlers in the kitchen cabinet and bring home some good beer for later. Another great, local winery is the Vivac Winery and tasting room that you passed on the Dixon turn off. The entrance to Vivac is from Hwy 68. They have music in the evenings and karaoke on Friday nights out on the patio.

If you’re looking to cool off, be sure to head up Hwy 68 past Rinconada to find the Rio Grande. Farther north is Pilar, where you can turn off the highway and settle down by the river in the Orilla Verde Recreation area. There are picnic tables and places to park near the river. It is managed by the BLM and can be a small, self service fee for day use. If you're in the area for skiing, the Long House will put you put you in close proximity to most ski areas. Sipapu is only 34 minutes away. Taos Ski Valley and Pajarito are about an hour. Angel Fire is an hour and ten minutes, and Ski Santa Fe and Red River and the Enchanted Forest are all an hour and twenty minutes away.

Early November each year, the Dixon Studio Tour features the renowned, local Embudo valley artists and their work. Visit their studios, talk to the artists and see their work from the past year. It's an exceptional opportunity to go places in the area that are only available during this weekend, and to purchase art directly from the artists. November in Dixon is not to be missed! The website has the listing of the artists and a map to their studios and a preview of what you'll find. Use your favorite search engine to check out the Dixon Studio Tour (for some unknown reason, airbnb won't let me show you the website address)

According to my neighbor down the lane who teaches archeology at Barnard College and spends his summers in Dixon, the Dixon Plaza was the prior location of the Picuris Pueblo. Old pottery shards can be found on the lanes and pathways as you walk.

And if you have the pleasure of visiting in the summer, be sure to check out the farmer's market each Wednesday starting around 3:30 pm in front of the Coop in June, July, August and into the fall!

Having taken the road less traveled, I’ve been lucky to travel to many parts of the world. I enjoy learning about new places, people and culture, and I believe there’s nothing better than experiencing that first hand. Having lived and traveled through most of Europe, parts of Canada, Mexico, and Ecuador, and nearly all of the fifty states, I have a great appreciation for traveling, meeting new people and finding great, new places. I lived in northern New Mexico for ten years before re-locating to New Hampshire, where I currently reside with my wife and daughter. We’re frequent visitors to the Long House and are happy to be able to offer our home for your stay in New Mexico. We think it’s one of the most special places in the world, and we hope you do too!
