IF YOU WISH TO STAY MORE THAN ONE WEEK, PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER FOR DISCOUNTED RATES.

We're happy to talk to you about the rates.

Nestled in the beautiful and lush Tesuque Valley this classic adobe home is a perfect retreat where attention has been paid to all the details for a memorable visit. The spacious house is situated in the foothills of the Sangre de Christo mountains with lovely grounds featuring fruit trees and lilac bushes. Enter through the Mexican gates to a private haven with Zen inspired gardens and beautiful views for a relaxing sojourn.

The open concept living space includes a large living room, furnished in comfortable Western style with leather sofas, easy chairs, interesting art work, including native rugs, a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of firewood. Hidden away in a lovely antique Chinese wedding armoire is an entertainment center including a television, DVD player and stereo system with CD player and iPod station. This room invites solitary relaxation, intimate conversation or festive entertaining. Enjoy board games and cards at an oak table in the adjoining sun room. Or, if you must do a little work or want to connect with friends, there is WIFI.

In a separate area, set off by a rustic wooden column and beams with hand carved detail, is a heavy wooden dining table, surrounded with wood and leather chairs, seating eight to ten people friendly in front of a bank of full-length windows. They provide an airy, sun dappled space by day, a romantic vista of twinkling lights by night.

Cooks will love the completely renovated kitchen with all new appliances, 5 burner stove, big stainless steel sink, and fabulous views from the large centerpiece window of the mountains to the west. Situated so that the cooks can easily interact with family and friends in the living and dining areas, the kitchen also has an unobstructed view to the television for glimpses of a favorite show or movie while preparing dinner. Counter seating provides a perfect spot for chatting with the chef or enjoying an early morning sip of coffee, tea or cocoa.

The cabinets are stocked by people who love cooking with All-Clad, Calphalon and Le Creuset cookware and every small appliance and utensil imaginable. You’ll find plenty of dishes and serving pieces, mugs and bowls and glasses of all types -- including a large stock of stem ware for wine -- and Southwestern-style hammered stainless steel flatware. There's a diverse selection of cookbooks to inspire you, complete with high-altitude tips, a vintage stool perfect for a young child, and, just for fun, a popcorn popper.

A bright sun room features French doors that open to a unique redwood deck with native latillas above. There you’ll be drawn to watch splendid evening sunsets or enjoy a meal al fresco at a wrought iron table - with or without umbrella - in a beautiful landscaped garden area a few steps away on a flagstone patio. Beyond the patio, a path leads to a private hot tub and deck with another table and chairs. Have a drink, a little something to eat, relax and enjoy the view to the open sky and the surrounding hills and trees. Through french doors off the dining room step onto a charming stone patio with a hand set stone wall, beautifully landscaped for a peaceful morning retreat or quiet evening with gentle lighting under a starry sky.

On the main level is a bedroom with bath that can be closed off for privacy. It is furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a comfortable King bed using the same system found at many spas, including Canyon Ranch. The room features a ceiling fan, large windows and ample closet space. The bath has a tub and a shower as well as a full size washer and dryer.

A few steps down from the main level is the private master suite with a King bed. A Mexican armoire holds a large television, DVD and CD players. Two magnificent Havana rockers with hand caning set off the room. French doors open to beautiful gardens and a fountain to softly lull you. Marble tiles make the master bath a serene place to enjoy the large walk-in shower with spa bench. The vanity has two sinks, ample drawer space and an expansive mirror.

Upstairs are two additional bedrooms which share a charming bathroom with wrought iron details, a Mexican tin mirror and a unique tile floor. These bedrooms have ceiling fans and are also served by an evaporative cooling system (air conditioning common in Southwest dry conditions) which effectively cools the house. Each upstairs bedroom has French doors through which to step out onto a large deck, a perfect place for sunning, watching evening sunsets or enjoying the antics of hummingbirds vying for nectar from the feeders and numerous bird species providing entertainment for all ages.

The smoke-free house, accessed through an electronically operated gate and a winding driveway, is off Bishop's Lodge Road. A carport offers shelter for your vehicles. Hard to believe you’re only three short and lovely miles from Santa Fe’s famous Plaza. Elegant Bishop's Lodge Resort and Spa, Santa Fe’s oldest inn, is one-half mile away, a perfect place to house overflow guests or to enjoy a meal or spa services.

Tesuque Village Market - the local grocery and dining place - is just two miles from the house. Keep an eye out for celebrities here while picking up fresh produce, pastries, take-out and wine for dinner or just stop by for lunch. Nearby is the Santa Fe Ski Basin which is perfect for great skiing. The marvelous town of Taos, with its highly rated ski slopes, is only 60 minutes away.

More features:
- Coffee, tea and cocoa await your arrival. Selection of spices, oils, vinegars and other 'staples' for cooking.

- Guide books for local hiking trails and places of interest are on hand as well as a full selection of materials about Santa Fe and New Mexico for touring, shopping, playing and dining.

- Board games, cards, dominos, and horse shoes.

- A cooler to take along on your outdoor adventures.

- A Guest Notebook provides you with all pertinent information you might need about appliances and house systems, as well as many recommendations of things to do, places to go, and restaurants.

- All bathrooms are stocked with hair dryers, shampoo, conditioner, bath soap and body wash.

- Closets are in every bedroom.

- There is plenty of hot water from new water heaters.

- When it is cold, reach for the firewood and pull out the comforters for the beds. When it is warm, fire up the grill and gather on the patio for dinner and enjoy the awesome beauty of nature.

                          Location

                          The house and property are situated in an expansive and stunning natural environment perfect for enjoying the outdoors at all levels of activity, from vigorous and challenging to quiet walking and observing. Hiking on the property and nearby trails is a favorite activity of guests. The house and grounds offer privacy, comfort and relaxation. Birdwatching, perfect for all ages, is a special treat and can provide hours of entertainment. Venture out for the Opera, close by, and to the road to the Ski Basin, just a very short drive for a beautiful outdoor adventure all seasons of the year. Just north of the house are destinations most visitors to Santa Fe never see: galleries, a sculpture garden and foundry, a glass blowing studio and a Southwestern cafe and market, a favorite of the locals. And just south of the house, the Plaza is just a quick and direct drive (no turns).
