Property description

Beautiful guesthouse in historic village of Lamy, New Mexico located 20 minutes SE of downtown Santa Fe. Lamy is the official train stop for Santa Fe and you have wonderful hiking, walking and biking trails just outside your door.

The guesthouse is large and spacious with beautiful views with, WIFI Internet, Phone and Privacy. Perfect for one person, a couple, or small family. King and twin bed. No pets.

If you love the opera in the summer, skiing in winter, hot air ballooning in the fall or art museums, Santa Fe's summer activities such as the Folk Art Market, Indian Market, and a place to stay where you can call your 'home' away from home, then this is the guesthouse for you.

There is a friendly family dog on the property in the compound so if you do not like dogs at all, then you should consider other properties.

Weekend rental, a week or longer stays are all possible.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I love travel and have spent most of my life exploring new countries, places and meeting interesting people. I even structured my work life to make sure that it involved international travel. Santa Fe always pulled at my heart strings so eventually I bought this amazing property and have created a beautiful space in my main home as well as the guesthouse. My guesthouse is named after my granddaughter, Nxai. Her parents were married by a 104 year old village chief in the village of Nxai in Botswana. It seemed like the perfect name. Sounds like (Nigh) since most people can't click their tongues well!!! Lamy is a wonderful village only 20-25 minutes from downtown Santa Fe and a great place to relax and enjoy the surrounding area. All seasons bring out something special so anytime is the right time to pay a visit. The photo on the left is the most recent trip in Nov. 09 to Easter Island and Chile. What an amazing place. I look forward to meeting you.

Why the Owner Chose Galisteo, NM, USA:
Because its absolute heaven for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Hikes outside your door A short drive into Santa Fe for shopping or sightseeing Beautiful sunrise and sunsets
