Very Santa Fe with massive adobe walls, varnished log ceilings, and extraordinary woodwork and ironwork. Built on a low rock cliff, overhanging river & waterfalls flowing through one of the prettiest estate sites in the area. Mountain views and lovely riverside.

Casa Del Rio is a very good value for an unforgettable Santa Fe vacation.
