Eight miles west of the Continental Divide at 7,400 ft. in elevation is the Pie Town Bed and Breakfast. It is five miles off Highway 60 on well-maintained gravel and sand-based roads; road condition are dependent on weather. The guest room is approximately 500 sq. ft. with a private sitting area, bath & quality queen mattress. The mountain views, wildlife, birds, and the sunrises and sunsets make each stay memorable. Of note, the night skies are some of the darkest in the nation.
The spacious guest room totals approximately 500 sq. ft. with a sitting area and full bath. There are views out the large windows in the bathroom as well as the two windows in the bedroom. There is a quality queen mattress neither too firm nor too soft, shabby chic decor and antique furnishings.
Outside the guest room is a large den with a private entrance into a mudroom, then to the outdoors, where a concrete slab may host a telescope focused on the northern sky.
There is extensive wildlife in the area including elk, mule deer, antelope, bobcat, lynx, mountain lion, coyote, jack rabbits, cotton tails, chipmunks, squirrel and the occasion bear, badger and fox. Many birds are in the area including golden eagles, hawks, flickers, juncos and ravens, but my favorite is the famed Mountain Bluebird.

I'm available most evenings to socialize until 7 pm, answer questions about area attractions and discuss local history.

The closest grocer is 22 miles away and closes in the evenings, therefore obtaining one's food in larger cities is recommended. You may use my fridge and kitchen for cooking lunch and dinner.
There are restaurants in the area but they too close in the evenings, and their menus are limited. Please fully plan your meals accordingly. (Food prepared in this kitchen is not regulated or inspected by NM Environmental Dept.)
Quiet time is 9 pm - 6 am
There are five steps up into the house; the walkway is primitive (made of rock and brick).
Recently, I left corporate life and am loving a more relaxed lifestyle. Only recently did I move back to this area. Pie Town has been a familiar place all my life since my dad worked on a large ranch north of Pie Town in the 1950's.
Intentionally I disconnected from most electronics three years ago and now spend my spare time working on the rock sidewalk I'm building, or in the yard. Although I currently have no animals, I hope to add chickens and dogs in the near future. Horses would be great, but not yet.
The skies here are so amazing at almost any time of day or evening, and I can see so far! All my guests have been awed by the sunsets and the fact one has a view of much of the sky from east to west and north to south. Plus the night skies make the stars appear only slightly out of reach - especially on a moonless night.
As a host, I enjoy people and like to visit but am also happy to afford my guests their privacy. I want to know that you are happy in my home. And whatever time you wish to leave the next day, I'll be up before then to walk you to your car (or drive you there).
