"The Ancient Way" Hiker's Hostel

Come for a Day or to Stay!

Welcome to the humble beginnings of our new Hiker’s Hostel on the peaceful Rio Chama in beautiful Abiquiu, NM! Our beautiful riverfront property for the CDT hikers is open while under construction. A camp-style hostel built by hikers, for hikers. Come and help us make it all it can be!

We have a 3 acre property on the Chama river surrounded by grassy pastureland, with 1.75 acres of garden space and a few fruit trees, with plans for more!   We love to love! We look forward to meeting your needs while you stay with us free of charge. (*Donations and Work Trade are appreciated but not expected!)

Daily lively discussions from the heart about life, love, and the ultimate purpose. All are welcome to participate in the circle.

Travelers take note, the people here are interesting, welcoming, and open to questions, and the food is delicious and wholesome. We were told that we should look up other community locations if we were ever in need of a place to stay.

Before dinner at this hostel they always have a celebration service with testimonies, music and dancing. This is a great group of people who serve the hiker community wholeheartedly!

My experience: They are incredibly accommodating individuals. Jeremiah picked us up and drove us almost an hour to their location in Lancaster, NH. I received a clean mattress... as well as a welcome basket. These two days were much needed, and I feel well-rested and ready to hike onward.
