Santa Fe Hobbit House is more than a place to stay: It is a DESTINATION! Gorgeous landscaping, private gardens and a waterfall (In Season) make it a veritable retreat atmosphere. Mosaic showers, inlaid wood, Faux walls, honed stonework throughout the house gives it a 'Live-in Gallery' feel.

The REAL touchstone of this house, however is its' distinctive gallery feeling. LOADED with murals, wood inlay and mosaics ... it is truly a place to stay for those visiting the Santa Fe artistic and historical attractions.

A quiet neighborhood, yet close to all the Santa Fe attractions. The Santa Fe Plaza is a short 1.4 miles away and 0.7 miles to the Railyard Park District.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather was great, skiing was great, the accommodations were great. Our stay could have not been better. The Hobbit House is truly a well crafted, unique and very "cozy" environment to have spent time with our family. Thank you for a first class experience, and sharing your space with us. We are looking forward to a return in the future and hopefully the Santa Fe Hobbit House will be available.



Best to you both!

Simply Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

It is the most elegant place we have ever stayed. Starting from the moment you drive up and catch the curb appeal to finding the water fountain in the back yard, it all is flawless. We would stay here anytime we are in Santa Fe. Terry and Sheila are the best hosts. Responsive to all of our requests, friendly and talented. The place is so awesome you are inspired to be on your best behavior and keep it in the immaculate state you found it in. The attention to detail, the craftsmanship, the artistic talent, high end appliances and supplies all work together to provide a superb home. Highly recommend you stay here on your next trip to Santa Fe!

Unique and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The six of us were thrilled to discover the beautiful craftsmanship and art throughout the house. The kitchen and the rest of the house were supplied with everything we could want for our cooking and enjoyment. The garden was particularly special with many flowers and a waterfall. We wished we had had more time to sit outside. The location near grocery stores and pharmacy, and within walking distance of Museum Hill were perfect for us. This was a unique and beautiful home. We all expressed the desire to return.

Thank you to Sheila and Terry.

A work of art

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home ! We were there for a 90th birthday celebration for my mom. This beautiful home certainly made the week special. The attention to every detail, the design work in the furniture and tile work is certainly a work of art. The backyard, with the waterfall and beautiful flowers, & chirping birds was such a relaxing place in the morning and evening.

Aesthetic beauty in quiet setting

Six old friends spent a great week in a house with great charms and beauty in each room. Great attention to details and the owners were extremely nice and welcoming/ helpful. The garden too is gorgeous. Would love to come back.

A Unique Gem

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this house are completely accurate, yet they can’t convey the feeling of being in a well-appointed museum with exquisite gardens and a peaceful, walled back porch. The neighborhood is both quiet and central. We discovered we could walk half a block to a fine French bakery for breakfast, which was delightful. If we are alive next year, we will be back!
