About the property

4 Bedroom Historic Adobe In The Railyard District

Find rest and privacy in our tastefully furnished historic adobe home. From our quiet neighborhood, you’ll be an easy 20 minute walk from the historic Plaza, through some of the most interesting parts of old Santa Fe. We’re 3 short blocks from the exciting Railyard, the new gathering place for Santa Fe’s citizens and visitors; explore museums and galleries, delight in our fantastic restaurants, discover the famous year-round farmers market, and enjoy bike trails. For snow enthusiasts, we are just 17 miles (1/2 hour) from the Santa Fe Ski Basin.

This 4 bedroom house is our family home when we are in town. The front two bedrooms each offer a queen bed and share a bathroom with tub and shower. The two bedrooms in the rear wing of the home (one with a queen and the other with two twin beds) share a bathroom with shower. The rear and front wings of the house are separated by the common living and dining areas, providing some privacy. Skylights, nichos, archways and high ceilings contribute to the unique, light-filled character of the home.

Our home is your home in Santa Fe, and includes a beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, patio garden, and dining and living areas with a fireplace woodstove. Casa de Gracia is family-friendly, including laundry access, broadband Wi-Fi, cable TV, filtered drinking water and many other amenities.

Come into Santa Fe on the Rail Runner from the Albuquerque Airport and walk here…or drive in and use our off-street parking. To get to the Plaza, or to other locations within the downtown area, walk or take the free shuttle service, the Santa Fe Pick-up, which operates from the Santa Fe Depot a few blocks away.

We invite you to find rest and enjoy the peaceful qualities of the house which has an enclosed garden for privacy. Our friend Carly will be your host for your stay.

About Lisa Lee

Bienvenidos! We are so pleased to have you consider our home, Casa de Gracia, for your stay in Santa Fe!

I am Lisa Lee, and live much of the year in Castro Valley, in the east side of the San Francisco Bay Area. Originally from Hawaii, I am an early childhood consultant and currently work for the City of San Francisco developing their universal preschool program. My husband and I love cooking great food, art, music, West African and Middle Eastern drumming and great new (and old) ideas of all kinds.

We truly enjoy meeting all kinds of people, as an appreciation for human diversity is central to what we do in our professional lives. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, don't hesitate to contact our friend Carly, who will serve as your most capable host in the City Different.

Lisa Lee purchased this house in 1988

Why Lisa Lee chose Santa Fe

We were attracted to the home's unique features, as well as its special location. This historic home was built by a member of one of New Mexico's most respected political families.

What makes this house unique

Casa de Gracia is an authentic adobe home which was remodeled in collaboration with a noted local artist and designer.

Casa de Gracia's location is ideal, adjacent to Santa Fe's Railyard and famous year-round Farmer's Market, and a 15-20 minute walk to the historic Plaza through some of the most interesting parts of old Santa Fe.

Just about perfect . . .

  • 5 of 5

My group of six women found the house and location just about perfect for our needs. We could walk almost every where we wanted to go in Santa Fe proper, and access to the roads leading out of town was just around the corner. We enjoyed hanging out on the front porch or the side patio, and in the cozy living room. We would happily return to the Casa de Gracia.

This is just for your information, more a suggestion than a complaint: I had noted lack of air conditioning when I made the reservation, and accepted the reasoning that with the typically cool night air of a desert environment, air conditioning was not necessary.

The night of our arrival, we were told, was one of the hottest in recent days and uncharacteristically humid. Unfortunately, we did not fully master the positioning of fans and cooling elements, plus the strategic opening of doors and windows, to capture what breezes were available, so we were pretty uncomfortable. On the plus side, Carly answered our cry for help the next day, and we figured out what worked best, to keep us relatively comfortable at night for the rest of our stay. (The decrease in the daily humidity levels was also on our side!).

Have you thought of installing ceiling fans in the bedrooms?

Beautiful home in a great location! The Casa de Gracia is a perfect place to explore Santa Fe.

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I had a wonderful long weekend in Santa Fe and enjoyed staying at Casa de Gracia. The house is in perfect condition and it is very spacious with four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Towels are provided and the kitchen had all the needed items. We would highly recommend this house to others.

Spring Break Visit

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home close to the Train Station in the Historical District of Santa Fe. The dwelling was well maintained, peaceful at night, and within walking distance of all things we enjoy. Close to the Plaza, museums, shopping of all kinds, and if doing day trips; close to major roads. We would recommend this home as a location of choice. Phyllis & Bryan from Texas

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house.....perfect for 4 women. Absolute terrific location...central to grocery, pharmacy and plaza. Poor television service and not so great WiFi. One thing we did notice with 2 women on walkers: Santa Fe is NOT handicap friendly!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your frank review. We just installled a new 40" flatscreen TV, cable and internet service, which should be a big improvement. We know this will be appreciated by future guests.
