Fodor's Review

On the Santa Fe Trail and directly below the Tooth of Time, this 1912 white adobe compound (the name means "House of the Hawk") on 225 acres is a romantic hideaway of the first order. The original owner, industrialist J.J. Nairn, used to entertain artists and other creative types here, and writer Zane Grey wrote Knights of the Range while he was holed up here. The rooms in the main house are furnished with Southwestern antiques and artworks by the likes of Frederick

Remington and Charles Stewart, and the 12-foot ceilings with huge pine vigas (support beams) lend an airy feel to the massive adobe walls. A two-bedroom suite in the adjacent guest cottage is ideal for families or friends traveling together. Tasty breakfasts should be taken on the patio when the weather permits. During the winter months, dinner can be arranged for guests with advanced notice.
