New Mexico is a true gem of the Southwest, with so much to do and see outside of its cities. While you may not think of New Mexico as an outdoor destination, take a look here and think again. There's Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, which encompasses 21,000 acres of towering rock walls, vivid colors, and beautiful scenery. Or what about Valle Caldera? It sits on 89,000 acres of National Preserve and is only of three super volcanoes in the United States. Don't forget about the Carlsbad Caverns or Tent Rocks, and of course, a visit to the White Sands Desert is a must. Whatever you decide to see, these cottage rentals across the state let you enjoy the great outdoors with all the comforts of home.
