Kristen Flance purchased this House in 2002
Why Kristen Flance chose Downtown
The great location downtown is unbeatable. When the house came on the market in 2002, we realized that we could personally manage it from our office right next door. The perfect location in the downtown core close to the Capitol, Plaza and Canyon Road, the legal commercial zoning, the house's large size and excellent condition, all make it a wonderful place for visitors to stay. Kristen furnished the home with original art, antiques, historic collectibles from Santa Fe and the Southwest that are appropriate to the age of the house which was built in 1924. Plenty of places to sit, firm beds with luxurious bedding, big expandable oak dining table, and the huge hot tub all make the home comfortable and fun for gatherings large or small.
What makes this House unique
Everyone loves the downtown location and being able to walk back and forth from the house to restaurants and events, galleries and stores, and meetings at the State Capitol. Walk a block to Kaune's Market to pick up sandwiches and groceries and fine wine. With off-street and covered parking, plus more free parking on-street, you will be free from parking problems. The narrow, quiet street is just three blocks long--no traffic noise will disturb you. Fine art, tasteful furnishings, luxury amenities and immaculate housekeeping welcome you to this five-star home.

So much fun for the book club ladies!
We truly enjoyed our stay. Great home with fabulous antiques to admire! Location worked out so well for us to walk everywhere!!!! Definitely would rent again for another book club group, family reunion, etc.
Loved Santa Fe
Great location. Great communication. Very well equipped. We had a great time.
Fantastic with every amenity
A group of 8 women celebrating our 70th birthdays this year had a wonderful time at Capitol Casa. We have all stayed at many places and never encountered a place more generously equipped with loads of towels, dishes etc. Each of us having their own bed was important for us. Great living area seating for group conversation and within walking distance of everything in town. Will stay there again!
Comfortable and convenient!!
The home was perfect for a large group and had everything you could possibly need. It was the perfect location and a breeze to walk to great restaurants, galleries, etc... Will definitely stay there again if travels bring me back to Santa Fe!
Perfect for multi-generational families
My family of 9 had a fantastic stay at Capitol Casa. The house had everything we needed and made it easy to figure things out- lights, thermostats, hot tub were all a breeze. The room layout downstairs was interesting, but the perfect place to put the young kids and baby in the group to run around. The rest of the rooms are well appointed, with ample blankets and comfortable beds. My favorite small touch was the number of towels available, there is no way to ever run out.
The house is also perfectly situated near downtown, a short walk away. Kakawa Chocolate house is also super close if you need a hot chocolate. Enjoy!
Superb house centrally located in historic Santa Fe, ideal for groups
Recently returned from a 5-night stay with a group of 9 women friends who first bonded in 1967. This is an amazing find! Capitol Casa is perfectly located, just a few blocks from the Plaza and downtown shops and museums, all within easy walking distance. As the name denotes, it is only a few feet—across Paseo de Peralta—from the state Capitol (the “Roundhouse”), with its magnificent art collection, which is free and open to visitors. Just a block away there is a drug store, coffee shop and Kaune’s Market, which is small and a bit upscale, but fine for picking up something you may have forgotten at Trader Joe’s or La Montañita (co-op) both within easy driving distance. The Saturday Farmers Market is also within walking distance, and I wish we had been able to shop there, but we were off to Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu that day. The house itself is beautifully furnished, homey and has ample room for a group. We occupied four bedrooms, hung out at the large dining table and living room, and shared the use of the 3 full baths. There were enough beds for several more. The mattresses were excellent and linens of high quality. The kitchen was very well-supplied with quality cutlery, ceramics, and pots and pans. There were numerous small touches that made us all smile.
Kristen (owner) and Debbie (manager) were highly responsive and very kind as we readjusted our numbers several times, modifying the contract each time to accommodate us. On our last day there, as we were discussing our next gathering place in the US or Canada, several of us felt that we would love to come back to Santa Fe to stay at Capitol Casa for a second time. We knew that we had only scratched the surface of all that the area has to offer, and we will be back! Thank you for a memorable stay in a wonderful small city rich in culture, history, and natural beauty.
Within very close walking distance are the historic Santa Fe Plaza (3/10 mile), State Capitol, Canyon Road, San Miguel Mission and the oldest church, Loretto Chapel with its miraculous staircase, Santa Fe's downtown with many fine restaurants, galleries and stores for Santa Fe's famous shopping, museums, galleries, historic sites, cultural attractions, visitors center for tourist information, playgrounds, grocery store and coffee house. Drive to golf, skiing, Indian Pueblos, prehistoric ruins, and the many scenic attractions throughout beautiful Northern New Mexico.
