Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a native of the town of Mesilla. My mother Josefina, grew up in Mesilla and was instrumental in a tradition that lives on today. During the Christmas Holidays she started the lighting of the lumanaries (frajilitos) every Christmas eve. She would invite the public into her home for a Christmas cookie and a cup of hot cider. People have come from around the world to see this attraction and enjoy her hospitality. We lost her 12 years ago, but her tradition lives on. It has become others tradition to join us for our Holiday cookies and cider. My husband, who came from Iowa, shares this tradition and is now a native.

Why the Owner Chose Mesilla, NM, USA:
My husband and I own 'www. josefinasoldgate' cafe. We started our project 12 years ago. We never expected things to grow and expand as they have. This property is attached to the home that my grandparents and my mother lived in. We turned it into this VRBO so that our guests may enjoy the property the way we have. It ajoins our cafe and winery. It is one short block to the Mesilla Plaza. You may take three steps up to the cafe, go shopping in the village, dine at your choise of restaurants or enjoy just relaxing in our private and lush back yard. 'You can hear the sounds of the bells of San Albino

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Next door to the Bascilla of San Albino. Walking distance to a variety of excellant restaurants. Walking distance to the oldest privately owned, movie theater in New Mexico (The Fountain Theater) Shopping and New Mexico wineries are within walking distance
