Pueblo Encantado condo description

Visit us at
Santa Fe's best kept secret is that Fall is its most beautiful season. The high desert and mountains explode in color, the days are still warm and sunny, and nights are cool and crisp. Also, the tourist season wanes, which makes the town more mellow and user-friendly. The flea market is still open, cultural life still going strong and the restaurants revise their menus to reflect autumn's bounty. Some long-term visitors say they wouldn't visit at any other time of year. Back at Pueblo Encantado, visitors enjoy relaxing, hiking and hanging out. From the patio, enjoy morning coffee, afternoon cocktails, bird watching and stargazing.

The Plaza is a short 10-minute drive away and parking is plentiful. And we're just across the road from the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado resort.

Cultural life goes strong all year round, and the hiking is always great. Back at Pueblo Encantado, enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktails around one of our two fireplaces.

Why stay in a faceless corporate hotel, when, for the same cost or less, you can wake up every morning in our light-filled, superbly appointed 'home away from home'? After a gorgeous Santa Fe day, you'll love coming home to a place where you can spread out and relax. We're sure you'll agree that it beats a minibar and a Do Not Disturb hang-tag.

Pueblo Encantado is a 95-acre community of 36 adobe-style homes in Tesuque, NM. Our light-filled, 1200 sq. ft. 2 bdrm/2 bath condo features a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, beamed ceiling, and sleeper-sofa. We have two full bedrooms with king-size beds, two full baths, a fully equipped kitchen and a separate dining area. The master bedroom has its own entrance, kiva wood-burning fireplace and small patio. A large patio off the living room is ideal for relaxing and watching the sunset over the Jemez mountains. Amenities include air-conditioning, gas-grill, 200-channel satellite flat-panel TV with many sports channels and 9 HBO channels, and Wi-Fi internet access from any room. The pool is open from May to October.

The Culture: Santa Fe and the surrounding area is a unique blend of three cultures- Native American , Hispanic and Anglo. Indian cave dwellings dating back 1000 years, Spanish villages from the time of the conquistadors and frontier towns founded as our country expanded westward present a fascinating overview of American and pre-American history.

Activities: Hiking trails, horseback riding, whitewater rafting in spring and autumn, winter skiing at Santa Fe Ski Basin, Pajarito Mountain near Los Alamos, or Taos Ski Valley. Shopping is excellent, whether you're seeking clothing, jewelry, art or antiques. Native American crafts and the work of other local artists are one of a kind and especially recommended. Area restaurants are justly famous, offering enough variety to suit all tastes and wallets, plus the best Margaritas to be found anywhere. For those who need to stay in contact, we have high-speed DSL and Wi-Fi.
