Romantic, exquisite and only two blocks from Santa Fe Plaza! Tucked away in an historic downtown Santa Fe neighborhood is McKenzie House. Relax and enjoy Santa Fe at its finest. Just steps away from the Plaza and major attractions including the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum (one block away!), Spanish Market, Indian Market and other world-class events, you can treat yourself in downtown Santa Fe. This very special, newly remodeled and private guesthouse is located in the heart of the historic district. We are the closest residential home north of the Plaza! Better than a hotel and more space than a B and B, you have your own fully equipped 'casita' (little house) and central location to enjoy the many sights and activities of Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico. Our comfortable and luxuriously relaxing casita is freestanding and separate from our main home; both sanctioned historically significant structures by the City of Santa Fe. Our main home was built circa 1915, the casita was the original carriage house.
McKenzie House is an intimate, 'studio style' (approx. 350 sq. ft.) accommodation with every attention to detail. Lovingly redesigned in 2001 to include both old world charms and contemporary amenities, including a outdoor hot tub, flat-screen TV/DVD, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and kiva fireplace. Central a/c installed 2017! We have furnished our casita with traditional, contemporary and folk arts from the Southwest region, including Fritz Scholder, Louie Ewing and Bill Schenck. Past guests have described our casita as 'peaceful', 'relaxing' and 'extremely convenient'. Many guests have commented, 'you have thought of everything!' (See more guest comments on the link below.)
Experience the excitement and charm of Santa Fe in the comforts of your own private neighborhood.
