About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

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.

Two HD - wide screen TV's and computer with internet, printer and wireless, allow guests to keep up with their e-mail and interests. 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!

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!

Living in a work of art!

  • 5 of 5

The Hobbit House more than exceeded our expectations and enhanced our Santa Fe exploration. The house is so creatively crafted and the yard a beautiful and relaxing place to unwind after a busy day. Sheila and Terry were a joy to work with and anticipated every need that may have occurred from the fabulous lavender shampoo & conditioner to the closet of DVD movies and lush robes for relaxing. The waterfall in the backyard was a soothing sound to fall asleep to after a busy day and although you are in a neighborhood with every convenience imaginable (Trader Joes, Whole Foods,....) it was very quiet. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the terrace and watching a variety of birds including daily visits from a humming bird. There is no better place to stay in Santa Fe... the walk to town through the quaint neighborhood was a daily part of our adventure! We would highly recommend the Hobbit House as part of any Santa Fe stay and thank Terry and Sheila for sharing their beautiful home with us. The RI gals June 2017

Great Stay at the Santa Fe Hobbit House!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here this past weekend (June 22 - 25). This is a great place for kids and grown ups alike. Very clean, spacious home for a weekend stay. Beautiful patio and close to a lot of restaurants, grocery store and pharmacy. Several blocks to walk to the square, but a very short drive to most areas that you would want to visit. We will definitely return to this location!

Spectacular home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular home in a wonderful city! We actually wished we had more time to simply enjoy this house. Everywhere you look there was a feast for the eyes, simply wonderful. A group of women went for our girls get-a-way and we each highly recommend this place. It is close enough to everything that it's an easy and inexpensive uber ride to downtown.
