The Dragonfly Cottage is a private and self-contained vacation home sitting between a wildflower meadow and the Jemez River in the Jemez Mountains -- just over an hour from Albuquerque or an hour and a half from Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Dragonfly Cottage is a perfect "base camp" for a discovery trip to northern New Mexico and a popular hideaway for honeymooning newlyweds, familes, small groups or couples seeking a charming, private getaway.

The Dragonfly Cottage is a smoke-free, private, two bedroom and one bathroom vacation home.  Brick floors with radiant floor heating, hand-made custom pine cabinets and ceramic tile create a cheerful ambiance in our little, 800 square foot cottage while windows bring in the stunning cliff and river valley views.  There are two queen-size beds, and one full bathroom with bathtub and shower.  There is also a blow up mattress(full size) available for use in the living room.  And for those who want to sleep with the stars above their heads, bring your sleeping bags to set up on the redwood deck.  The deck stretches almost from one end of the cottage to the other; with the river running by just down the bank.  Bring your own food and prepare meals in our fully equipped kitchen. Local restaurants are also available in the area. The Dragonfly Cottage is the perfect place to make some family memories!
