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.

Recently, I replaced the kitchen countertop 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 cool in the summer and warm in the winter. 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 moves more slowly. A walk up to the Co-op for some food or down 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. Don't be surprised when the neighbor's Pug, Romeo, comes by to say hello!

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 outside, 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 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 caretaker Amanda lives. Just talk to Amanda and she'll give you access to the laundry.

While Dixon is an 1:50 hrs from ABQ, 60 minutes from Santa Fe, and about 30 minutes to Espanola and Taos, Dixon is a great place to explore and enjoy northern New Mexico.

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. The library next door has free wifi, classes, and guest speakers. I have a library card for the Long House so guests can check out books and movies.

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 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. 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 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.

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.

The long house was the perfect location for a quite weekend. The house itself is cute, and very nice. We spent the days driving to Taos or Santa Fe, so the location was perfect for us. The market up the street had a great selection and was very cute. David sent directions and helpful hints for everything and Amanda responded to my questions and texts in a timely manner and was very friendly. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The Long House is simply wonderful. David was friendly, kind and caring. We felt completely welcomed and at home; like we were staying with an old friend. The house and location are fabulous, with lovely views from the back porch. It's beautiful inside and has a super-comfortable king-size bed in the master bedroom. Dixon is a great place to stay if you are interested in art and crafts, nice hikes and a pretty location. I'd come back to stay at the Long House again in a heartbeat. Thank you, David!!!

Thanks Lynn! I'm so glad that I was there right before you arrived for a good, solid three weeks. Not only was it awesome to be back in Dixon when the peaches and apples were being picked, I was really able to make some nice changes that I'd been planning for some time with the new granite countertops and replacing the old, fence posts in front. I'm already planning ahead for my trip next summer! I'm so happy that you and Kathryn had a good visit in Dixon, and I was so pleased to hear that you'd stopped at Sugar's on your way into town, and grabbed some wine at Vivac to enjoy on the porch during the sunset! If you enjoyed the local artists work that you saw, you should think about coming back for the Dixon Studio Tour in early November! It's a great weekend of being able to meet the artists in their homes and studios and see what everyone has been doing all year.

The long house in Dixon has so much character. The location in Dixon is very good as I would walk to the only store(co-op) in town for food supplies that include organic and gluten-free items. Staying in Dixon is very convenient to the river activities of which we did the river rafting and standup paddleboard. Also very near the vivac winery of which the melbec was very good. I just wished they would stay open past 6pm. There are several other wineries in the area. Amanda is nearby if one needs anything. Thanks David for sharing your place. My 15 year old son thought it was 'dope'(translates to awesome).

Thanks Don! I have to say, I'm super impressed with your son and the fact that he thought that his visit to Dixon and the Long House was awesome. Hope you were able to enjoy the high, mountain air and hill to Penasco on some of your runs. I had a long run of 11 miles while I was there right after you left, and that hill was quite the challenge.

We had a great time staying at The Long House! It definitely has all the charm and allure given in the description. The location was great for exploring different parts of northern New Mexico. The house has everything you'll need and the host gave great directions and tips for using things in the house and local sights / restaurants. Highly recommend!

David's house in Dixon was lovely. Perfect for a relaxing hideaway or if you want to be near Taos or Abiquiu. I would come back again and again for the charming and relaxing stay.

Thanks Heather! You're welcome back anytime. I'm headed to Dixon in August and I'll definitely follow up on your suggestion and get some new, summertime photos of the Long House on the listing. Glad that you found it better than advertised!

Very comfortable and just as described. The location feels very private. This is a typical northern New Mexico home, what I call New Mexico Vernacular. The home is equipped with anything you might need. David accurately describes the remoteness of this lodging. There are limited dining options indeed. We found it easier to cook for ourselves in most instances. I agree with David's assessment of Sugar Nymphs for breakfast or lunch. We definitely will return.

Thanks for Mike! I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay (hopefully a bit cooler than southern NM at that time) and were able to take advantage not only of the kitchen in the Long House, but also Sugar Nymphs up the road in Penasco. While I love to cook, I also love what Ki and Kai at Sugar Nymphs cook. Check out their pizza on Friday and Saturday evenings next time. You won't be disappointed!

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!
