About Terry and Sheila Northway

My wife and I have lived in Santa Fe for the last 30 years, and for about the last 10, we have wanted to play 'host.' We bought a house in a key location, and for 5 years, I 'dolled it up' with an attempt to make it a 'live-in art gallery.' It was so fun, I now am doing more of this kind of work. Sheila came in with her green thumb, and designed and planted the landscaping, plus, she oversaw all the interior decoration and furnishings. Now we work together to get it ready for guests. It is a lot of fun for us.

Terry and Sheila Northway purchased this house in 2004

Why Terry and Sheila Northway chose Santa Fe

Santa Fe Hobbit House is unique and comfortable situated in a quiet but centrally located neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

People who stay at our property usually make the same remark: 'What a labor of love!' That was our goal. To make the house a destination, more than just a place to stay.

Highlight of Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Very, very clean. Cool decor without being cluttered. Lots of extras (food staples, pots, pans, washer/dryer linens, detergent, soap, computer with printer, books and games) reduced the hassle and waste of needing to buy those items. Quiet street with picturesque backyard, patio and fountain. Can walk to groceries, farmers market and downtown square. Highly recommended!

Enchanting vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The "Hobbit House" is a wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable, beautiful and well appointed. The owners provide everything you will need and more! The house is close(walking distance) to groceries and Starbucks. An easy walk to town and all of the historic sites.

There is a glorious patio to enjoy the Santa Fe weather.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Santa Fe!

magical place

  • 5 of 5

Recently had the opportunity to stay in this amazing home for a 50th birthday party / family reunion. I want to return to just stay in the house and soak up all the beauty in it. It had everything we needed and more. It is worth traveling just to stay in this place - you won't need to plan any excursions!

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

The only reason this is a 5 star is because there isn't a 6 star. Add whatever superlatives you can think of and then add more. It is over the top in delightful, artistic beauty. You have to see it to believe it. Every time we opened the door to return to this vacation get-a-way it was with a sigh of sheer relaxing enjoyment. Could not have been better. Thanks for the opportunity to experience the hobbit house in one of our favorite places - Santa Fe.
