About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Sweet adobe casita along the high road to Taos is close to Santa Fe, Tesuque, the opera and is convenient to the beauty and charms of Northern New Mexico. The perfect haven for when you want to explore Georgia O’Keefe country, the ancient pueblos, historic Spanish villages, Taos, Los Alamos, Jemez, Puye Cliffs and Bandelier National Monument. Great location for nature lovers as well, as we are within easy distance of hiking, biking, skiing/boarding, snowshoeing, rock climbing, river rafting, ballooning, fishing, bird watching and more! In fact, you can hike or bike right out of the front door.

Located approximately 17 miles north of Santa Fe plaza near the Nambé Church, this guest house to a private residence has its own entrance, a walled patio and covered portal. From the outdoor areas, enjoy dramatic sunset views over a nearby mesa and the Jemez Mountains beyond and later study the stunning nighttime skies. Additional outdoor areas include a picnic area under an old apricot tree and a seating area along the Acequia del Caño. There are two off-street parking spaces.

The casita has vigas and saltillo tile floors throughout and is decorated in Santa Fe country style with antiques, original art, tribal rugs, and quilts. The main living area has a seating nook with two bancos, a dining area, wood burning kiva fireplace and full kitchen. There is a separate bedroom, bath with tub and shower and a laundry area. The bedroom has a queen sized “Doctor’s Choice” bed and the two bancos can be comfortably converted to twin beds to accommodate up to 4 people. 100% cotton linens and fluffy towels are provided. The kitchen is stocked for basic cooking and has a microwave, coffee maker, electric tea pot, blender and attractive china and serving ware for six.

We provide a welcome bottle of wine and complimentary tea and coffee. During the season, we will be happy to share the bounty from our no-chemical kitchen garden with you.

This is a comfortable and delightful retreat for the daytime explorer. It is also a perfect writer’s retreat or getaway for those special romantic occasions – honeymoons, anniversaries or birthdays. Light concierge services are available – let us help you plan the perfect vacation, including those special touches that will make it so memorable!

Please note: The Casita has a DVD player but not television. Also, this is a smoke free facility. Casita is generally well stocked but please feel free to ask if there is something special you need.

Keywords: Charming adobe casita on the historic Acequia del Cano. Quiet with private walled patio with sunset view of the baranca and dining under the heirloom apricot tree. Santa Fe country style furnishings with vigas, kiva fireplace, saltillo tile floors and more. Perfect for guests with chemical sensitivities.

Owner info

About the owner: Owner is an architect and publishes an online magazine, diisynology, that is dedicated to eco-conscious interior design and architecture. She loves gardening, cooking, travel, the opera, books and mountain sports.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
The Nambe River valley is a lovely, lush and historic area within a quick drive to Santa Fe. People in the area are friendly and helpful and one enjoys the beauty and quiet of living in the country with easy access to the arts, culture, food and activity of Santa Fe.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Complimentary bottle of wine with each stay. Enjoy morning coffee or an evening drink in the private walled patio. Walk out the front door and take a hike down to the arroyo and the barancas beyond or down to the Nambe River. Enjoy fresh tomatoes and other produce from the garden. If you like pets the three friendly cats and the happy dog will be down for a visit. There are several excellent restaurants nearby as well as a supermarket, drugstore, and gas stations. The owner is happy to provide help with your vacation plans and offers light concierge services. We have also helped set up the casita for special needs guests and locate medical services. If you don;t want to miss your workout or you would like to get started, my neighbor - Lenny Natural - is a certified personal trainer. Lenny has full gym facilities in a rustic setting a short walk from the Casita. Massages are also locally available at the Pojoaque Wellness Center, in Espanola or at the Buffalo Thunder Resort. Other pool and gym facilities are located in Pojoaque and Los Alamos. I have neighbors with tennis courts and equestrian facilities and can make arrangements for you.
