Property description

Legacy hospitality, all 5-star reviews for 8 years, this large home is a remarkable, world-class education for your family.

Why stay in a crowded, average, downtown location, when you can experience a world view, featuring Santa Fe style with antique textiles and folk art from many countries? Charming 3,200 sq ft home, on 3.5 acres, custom designed with high ceilings, exposed vigas, 13 skylights, rounded entryways, 2 kiva fireplaces, and mountain views of the sunset that take your breath away. If you only need a few nights, or want to stay longer term, we can meet your needs. Our guests love to return to Casa del Oso year after year.

Outdoors, this home features flagstone patios with east and west-facing mountain views, table for 8, hand-crafted wooden furniture, hammock, barbeque grill and privacy to make unforgettable memories. You can watch the sun set on your troubles, while the stars appear in a sky devoid of all other light sources. No traffic noise or distractions to keep you from having the time of your life!

This is an exceptional home, one your family will never forget. Read through our 5-star reviews, and see for yourself how we provide legacy hospitality at unbeatable rates.

Year Purchased: 2004

About: This home has all the Santa Fe charm in the world. We had our designer furnish the house with many of our treasures brought back from other cultures, with many beautiful textiles from Morrocco. We love having a desert vacation home to return to for wide open spaces and sunshine most of the year. My assistant, Jesse, does all the booking arrangements at your convenience. We have forged many good friendships with guests of Casa del Oso, many of whom return throughout the year. We love this home, and the neighborhood couldn't be better.

Why La Tierra:
Santa Fe culture is rich with diversity, and the history and people are fascinating. This home gives you the pleasure of 3.5 acres, only ten minutes from town, with mtn views, folk art and unforgettable legacy hospitality.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Vacationing at Casa del Oso is like owning your own home for relaxation and enjoyment any time of the year. Sunset views are fantastic over the Jemez mountains, and the Sangre de Cristo mountains are visible from the east courtyard. We have a jacuzzi tub, barbecue grill on the patio, and 3,200 square feet of luxury pueblo-style architecture to enjoy. Our furnishings are comfortable and elegant, with Santa Fe style.
