About D. Heinley
I grew up in a very small town in Arkansas, but my family moved to Florida when I was 14. I attended USF in Tampa and then Boston College for my master's work in History. I went to Paris to finish my thesis and did not return for 5 years! My focus shifted to Fine Art and I began collecting 19th Century French paintings with my French partner. For 15 years afterwards, I represented these masterworks in Boston from a Townhouse on Marlborough Street and curated exhibits for galleries and institutions. I discovered New Mexico later and was captivated instantly so I built my 'get-a-way' (fantasy) home and have used it as my retreat from a very demanding professional life. I have found much inspiration here.
D. Heinley purchased this House in 1997
Why D. Heinley chose Embudo
It chose me! It was the last place I ever thought I would be, however, I stopped to visit a friend on my way back from a business trip and she introduced me to the Dixon area....that was it for me! When I saw the land I fell under its spell and knew that I had to return. I have traveled all over the world and have not found an area as dramatically beautiful as northern New Mexico.
What makes this House unique
I really enjoy watching the wildlife on the river and canoeing. Swimming and rafting are also fun. Cooking out on the river and building a crackling fire in the kiva fireplace is always a wonderful way to relax. There are some very special secluded and magical places to walk or hike with breathtaking views. I guess the privacy of my land and the rustic charm of the place are what I enjoy most because I can totally relax and heal from the pressures of my business and city-life. Everything else just either slips away or falls into place here. It is paradise on earth to me.

Perfect 30 Year Anniversary Stay!
Sorry we never stopped by. We hardly left your place. Perfect 30 year anniversary stay. Thanks for the champagne :) Your place is perfection!! Thanks again!
All your recomendations were spot on
We are so grateful to you for sharing your beautiful home with us this past week. We had an incredible trip and your casa on the Rio Grande was at the center of it. Thank you for your kindness and your wonderful spirit which infuses this place. Until next year (paleeze!)
With great affection,
Your guys from Oklahoma!
P.S. All your recommendations were spot on. We especially enjoyed Plaza Blanca and even toured the mosque.

Fantastic property and lodging.
Lots of great places within an hours drive, but no need as the property offers plenty of activities and space. Caters to every indoor and outdoor need.
Yup. It's Paradise.
Beautiful House, Beautiful Furnishings, and Beautiful Grounds.
Short two night stay. Spent all day on a lounge chair reading by the river.
I would highly recommend this property to couples who would like to reconnect and spend
time together away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Can not say enough about what a great feeling it is to be surrounded by such good energy here.
Donna went way beyond making sure our stay would be outstanding.
Magical Place and Sanctuary
My sister, Carol, and I are without words to properly express how appreciative – grateful really – we are that you allowed us to experience this very magical place you call home. With our mother’s passing over the summer, we desperately needed a place to come together and share our grief and memories of this incredible woman. This was a sanctuary where we were able to honor her memory and heal our broken hearts to a level that is beyond comprehension. All the best (until next time), Claudia.
There is world class trout fishing here....REALLY! You can canoe or swim from the property. Also perfect for intimate riverfront weddings or family reunions.
