Vallecitos Mountain Retreat Center is a magical mountain wilderness ranch that is occasionally available for conferences, seminars, meetings, retreats and trainings from May to October.

The beautiful and historic log cabin lodge features a meditation hall and spacious upstairs loft for meetings and gatherings. The dining room overlooks the Vallecitos River and stunning mountains and meadowlands. The library, front porch and a spacious 30-foot yurt can also be used for breakout groups and gatherings.

Rustic, comfortable accommodations are available in our individual casitas, yurts and tent cabins and our “Middle House” accommodates further guests or your staff and teachers. The ranch can accommodate up to 35 guests.

Rates & Reservations

To keep costs low, and in the tradition of Buddhist meditation centers, guests will have a short work period (“work meditation”) to help maintain the retreat.

Shuttle Service 

We can help you reserve a shuttle for your group with round trip service to and from downtown Santa Fe and/or the Albuquerque Airport, or Durango, CO if you wish. The cost of the shuttle is $150 per person round trip for a minimum of 10 people from either point. Smaller groups may arrange shuttle service at a higher per person rate. Shuttle prices are an estimate and Vallecitos in no way guarantees them.
