I fulfilled a lifelong dream of visiting the Santa Fe area and stayed at the Charming "Western" guest house in Placitas. The setting was gorgeous and the hosts were more than helpful and friendly. I can't say we had any complaints whatsoever. It was close to both Albuquerque and Santa Fe so we were able to explore the area with ease. Jake gave us suggestions about getting to our destinations on scenic routes that took our breath away. The guest house was clean, quiet, and well-equipped for all our needs. We found the people in the area to be very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the guesthouse to those who want to experience life in that area rather than a motel that looks the same everywhere.

We stayed at this adorable guest house for 7 weeks while awaiting the completion of our new house in Placitas. The accommodations were perfect for us and our dog. Everything you could need or want is available, including a laundry, which was really helpful for our extended stay. Jake and Robyn are delightful hosts and we now consider them friends in our newly adopted community. We would highly recommend staying at this property. You are out in the country, with hiking trails and wild horses roaming nearby, yet very convenient to the Interstate and local area attractions.

Placitas is a wonderful high desert community located in the NE foothills of the Sandia Mountian Range. It is an ideal place to live and visit due to wonderful weather, scenery, and proximity to Albuquerque, Santa Fe and other incredible destination spots NM is noted for. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to relax, or utilize as your base for exploration, look no further. We were fortunate to find this guest house and stay for several weeks this past summer, while undergoing reconstruction at our place. Jake and Robyn are terrific host and wonderful people. The unit is offered at a very competitive rate.

We stayed for a week in June 2011 and absolutely loved it. This was our first trip to New Mexico and we were looking for the comforts of home with a convenient location and privacy. We explored the area by day and were able to relax in this beautiful and peaceful setting at night. Jake and Robyn were very helpful when asked for local info and it was a pleasure to be their guests. We had a great experience and would recommend this property.

We had a very enjoyable stay in this place. There was plenty of room for the 4 boys and us. It was secluded and good place for hiking as well. What we most enjoyed was seeing the wild horse herd grazing just across the way. We actually saw them twice in a week, which was exciting to all. The place has plenty of dishes and so forth, and we cooked all our meals easily. Internet was reliable, and we hooked up our WII to the big screen TV they have too. Lots of dvd's and games are provided for the kids and they will give you more if needed. A great place to kick back!!!

I enjoyed my stay at the Western Guest house in Placitas. I have always liked the peacefulness of the Placitas area and this place gave me the opportunity to enjoy it. Jake and Robyn were very attentive to any needs that I had. The guest house was tastefully decorated and offered nice views of Shiprock in the distance.

Owner response: We enjoyed having you stay with us, and especially grateful for helping us " roundup " our escaped horse that one night. That view of " Shiprock " is actually a view of Cabezon, an extinct volcano cone on the way to Cuba and Chaco Canyon. Best of everything, Jake & Robyn
We stayed here for a week in February 2011. Well-furnished guesthouse on outskirts of rural development in the hills east of Bernalillo. Everything worked, including wireless internet (that's the one thing that often does not, but no problem here). Our hosts were friendly and helpful. The view wasn't spectacular, but it grows on you. Nearby walks down arroyo and into hills frequented by wild horses. We'd stay there again.

Ink black nights with stars that blaze extra bright just for you, silence so profound that you swear the breeze is actually whispering sweet nothings in your ear as she wraps invisible silk around your shoulders, sunsets that take your breath away and sunrises that impulsively demand the tears that you forgot about . Sage, Juniper and Ceder bring back your senses that have been dulled from city grime. Plus Host's that invisibly make sure your stay is as pleasant as humanly possible. Walking trails, wild horses a short 1/2 mile hike, the charm of old Albuquerque and Santa Fe within equal distance of this delightful Guest House. Whatever MY reasons have been for returning time and again, you will find YOUR delight in your stay here. Need a place to write? How about paint? Catch up on reading, or sleeping...you will find a reason to keep coming back and will feel reconnected, recharged. And you will find new friends. Recommend this place? Absolutely!

Jake and Robyn are the tops. They make you feel like part of the family. The atmosphere is quite yet very drawing. One cannot go out side and not be beckoned to go explore the foothills. You can sit and see a endless array of beautiful multi colored mountains. Hear the echos of the coyotes. and the sweet tweeting of a plethra of birds. and do not forget the breath taking sunsets, as you nestle into the quaint cozy warmth of the big comfy bed or hide to read a book in the pivacy of the great loft area. Open the drapes to exprience a gorgeous sunrise as you smell the cooking of black beans, authentic tamales or tortillas and eggs you can find at any local shop. You might even get to see the wild horses that roam the foothills. Then know what ever your tastes in vacation is you can find it just minutes away from Jake and Robyn's.

About the owner: We moved to NM in 1970 and found it to be truly 'enchanting.' The weather, scenery and culture of this part of the country can't be beat. Our property is located far enough out of town to be beautiful, quiet & private, but only minutes away from all the advantages that cities have to offer. We look forward to your visit. Jake & Robyn
Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
We love the area, and it is close to friends and our work. This community is one of the best & most desirable places to live in NM.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Drive in any direction from Placitas and the area changes so dramatically that you will feel you have traveled to another country. Santa Fe is the art capital of the southwest, and yet is only the tip of the cultural iceberg in NM. There are 6 Indian Pueblos & many historical sites nearby, and great hiking & biking right outside your door. The house sits in a high canyon valley overlooking the Santa Ana & San Felipe Pueblo lands, with the Jemez mountains & Cabezon to the west. Wild horses often wander down the slopes, and they may surprise you on your hikes. World Class Golf at the Tamaya Resort is 15 minutes away, and Paako is just over the mountain. Take a ride on the longest tram in the world to the top of the Sandia (means 'watermelon' in Spanish) Mountain Range and watch the lights of Albuquerque come on following a magnificent sunset. There is so much to do and see you will want to come back often. And of course, don't forget the largest International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in the world through the first two weekends of October. Let us point you in the right direction, whatever your tastes may be. Bienvenidos! Welcome to New Mexico!
