About Herb Adcock

My wife and I own two businesses, both associated with the hotel industry. My wife is a commercial interior designer designing hotels throughout the world. My business involves working with manufacturers who produce custom interior furnishings for hotels.

Herb Adcock purchased this house in 1997

Why Herb Adcock chose Santa Fe

We have loved Santa Fe for many years, were married here, and enjoy spending time in the City, with multiple interests in the Arts, including the Santa Fe Opera, Santa Fe Symphony, and Santa Fe Chamber Music. We also appreciate the multiple Art Galleries located throughout Santa Fe. As well, we enjoy the beatiful outdoors, vistas, and temperate climate of the area.

What makes this house unique

Our property is ideal for the entertainer, and also for the family or person looking for space to spread out, enjoy the outdoors, and take in the beatiful scenary. The property is convenient to downtown Santa Fe, the roads to Ten Thousand Waves Spa or the Santa Fe Ski area, hiking areas, convenient to Taos and Chimayo, as well as Canyon Road.

Good place for families

  • 4 of 5

Good: lots of space, very nice furnishings and decor, kids (2, 5 y/o) loved looking to Dinosaurs in the junipers and short pines. Outdoor space was nice. Close to town, nice tranquil vibe. Just so nice with small kids to have some space vs even a large hotel room.

Not so Good: there was a little road noise outside that seemed less prominent as we went along. Felt like it was slightly high on the price once all the fee got added.

Overall, owner and property manager were pleasant to deal with. PS if you have kids definitely do Harry's Roadhouse Cafe; kid friendly with high end cuisine, a rarity.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to our guest for his positive comments on our property. We appreciate his notes on the expansive space with exceptional views of the mountains. With regard to the road in front of the house and some road noise, we feel this is a positive that the road is always passable, even during snow and ice periods. Additionally, the minimal amount of noise does not affect the outside areas of the house, which are sheltered from the road.With regards to comments that the cost of rental is a bit high based on added fees, we are not responsible for added fees due to bookings made through VRBO. In the 15 years of ownership of Vista Encantada, we have never had any reviews of the property that were less than 5 stars, and we appreciate the views made by our guest. Herb Adcock

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Just far enough from town to grab outstanding views. Beautiful loggia where we spent most of the time, always ate out side. I have stayed in a number of rentals over the last 6 years and this is tops. Kitchen well supplied. Plenty of room for three or four, and the newly remodeled bathrooms are hotel worth five star.

Fabulous home in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent New Year's week in this lovely home north of Santa Fe.

The location was perfect with access to the mountains and Santa Fe, not to mention 5 minutes to the Tesuque Market and quick access to skiing.

The owners have put a lot of attention to all the home details that make for an incredible stay. Kitchen is fabulous, master bath is incredible, outdoor cooking area with pizza oven is wonderful. Tons of towels for a big family, great beds.

Can't say enough nice things about this home and its' owner.

Loved our stay and would definitely stay there again!

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Hummingbirds galore and a fantastic sunrise every morning with great mountain views. Very relaxing and comfortable property with fully equipped indoor and outdoor kitchen, close to town but feels removed. Easy access to hiking, freeway, ski area, etc. Owner is very responsive and accommodating, our second stay and we will definitely return.

Relaxing and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here in December. The house was very comfortable, with a kitchen that included pretty much every known cooking item. The two bathrooms were recently remodeled, and had several neat and modern features. It was snowing during our stay, so we were not able to enjoy the backyard barbecue and pizza oven, but the house was cozy and warm. The owners have a great taste for decorations, and the house felt very lived in and loved. We found the view very relaxing and enjoyable. The house is set apart from its neighbors on a good size lot so as to provide privacy, but a close drive to town.
