Tucked into a quiet, mountain canyon with sheer cliffs rising from the river along New Mexico's scenic Jemez Mountain Trail, The Dragonfly Cottage in Jemez Springs is a nature-lover's delight!

The Dragonfly Cottage at Desert Willow is a delightful vacation cottage located on the Jemez River in the village of Jemez Springs, a short drive from the 95,000 acre wildlife refuge called the Valles Caldera National Preserve. We are also a scenic hour's drive from Albuquerque and an hour and a half from Santa Fe. Convenient, yet in another world, The Dragonfly Cottage is an ideal get-away for New Mexicans and a peaceful destination for travelers looking for an authentic New Mexico experience.

We pamper our guests with lovely, private accommodations under old cottonwoods and majestic cliffs. The Dragonfly Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen(breakfast is no longer served), fireplace, and a large, redwood deck overlooking the Jemez River valley. A two nights minimum stay is required at The Dragonfly Cottage. Well-behaved pets are welcome, but must be on a leash when outside, picked up after, and crated when left alone in the cottage.

There are many things to do in the Jemez Springs area.  For the active travelers, the choices are endless.  From hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing in the warmer months to snowshoeing and cross country sking in the winter.   There are miles of trails available to explore in the Valles Caldera and surrounding National Forest.  Or if you want to relax, there are various natural hot springs in the area to explore and enjoy.  There is also fishing at Fenton Lake and various streams in the area, including right behind The Dragonfly Cottage.  Or just relaxing and reading a book on the large redwood deck is also great.  There is something for everyone visiting Jemez Springs.

Cancellation Policy : If you do not cancel your reservation 72 hours before your arrival or do not arrive when scheduled, your card will be charged for the entire stay.
