Guestbook comments from the owner

The highlight of our trip was George's recommended trip to the Jemez Mountains - spectacular scenery, Anasazi ruins, and especially lunch at Los Ojos Bar and Grill, an authentic Old West saloon, with juke box, pool table, cowboys, Indians, elk and bear skins on the wall, and great buffalo burgers.

We had a wonderful week staying in this beautifully appointed guest house. The view is breathtaking. Close to two excellent restaurants, and a ten minute drive into town. Would go back in a minute.

Just Left After Our Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our second stay at The Guesthouse on the Hill, and left with the same appreciation for the beauty of the location, the wonderful charm of this very special house and the feeling of rest that comes with being a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of being in Santa Fe proper. Waking up each morning and looking out at the unobstructed view of the mountains brings a feeling of peace and awe. The 6 mile drive to the city center is beautiful, especially if you take the historic Old Road out of Tesuque. The owner is gracious and attentive to your needs, but very careful let you have the the privacy that we came for. Yes, we are thinking of a third visit.
