About the property

Two Beautiful Guest Casitas, Near Town But Has A Country Feel

Two guest casitas, one with a kitchen and shower , the other with Zen feel and amazing spa bath. Both have private sitting areas. A cool breeze and warm sun is almost always present in the summer. Beautiful wildflower gardens.

Would like like breakfast cooked for you each morning or just a few? Just ask. Want the fridge stocked from Whole Foods and the farmer's market ............just say the word.

We enjoy serving you.

About Greg Lawton

Couple 50ish, man and wife. We live on site and can help you plan your stay in historic Santa Fe.

Greg Lawton purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Greg Lawton chose New Mexico

Looking for an oasis in the desert. You found it. Casitas immaculate, well furnished and 600 count Egyptian cotton sheets.

If you enjoy sitting outdoors in the sun or shade you'll love our wildflower gardens. The gentle rustle of the Aspen leaves are calling you.

You may not want to leave.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the well designed feel of Le Relais De Santa Fe. The modern design pays homage to traditional adobe design while incorporating modern design concepts. Furniture is modern rather than southwest. Most of the art is local and original.

In the final analysis it is the outdoor space, well planned and maintained that sets Terrain Santa Fe apart from other homes. Come find a place to sit near one of the fountains, or take a nap in the outdoor sleeping platform and later after a beautiful sunset, light a fire and watch the stars come out.

Beautiful setting, wonderful owners, can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the time we spent here! The property is absolutely beautiful and meticulously maintained. Our casita had everything we needed - we felt very at home there - and Greg and Marie were wonderful hosts. Greg went out of his way to make sure we had a memorable stay and even prepared a delicious breakfast for us one morning. We loved our time here and hope to return soon.

Relaxing Post Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful casita!! Remote, yet just four miles from Santa Fe Plaza and the history of this colorful city. The casita is comfortable and offered a relaxing week. While we sampled several restaurants, we were able to enjoy coffee each morning, as well as, a couple light meals prepared in our cozy casita.

Greg and Marie were amazing hosts. While we had everything we needed, they made sure we were comfortable and had anything needed. They were great ambassadors of the area, offering restaurant and sights to see suggestions.

It was a bit chilly so we were only able to enjoy the property and scenery from the casita. We hope to return during the warmer months and take advantage of all the casita and property offer. We highly recommend the property.

Thanks, Greg and Marie, for a wonderful visit! Cheers!

Beautiful. A wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for those looking for a little solitude, with only a 5 minute drive down to Santa Fe plaza area. We went for anniversary trip, and this is just what we were looking for. Greg and Marie were excellent hosts! We stayed in the casita with a fireplace and kitchen, which has a scenic sitting area outside (great for drinking wine, reading, etc.) I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to enjoy all Santa Fe has to offer while at the same time keeping a bit of distance between you and the tourist bustle. Great place to escape to after a day of art crawling and shopping.

Beautiful property, great accommodations, fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week at Le Relais de Santa Fe in mid-August and enjoyed a splendid vacation. We were in the smaller of the two rooms, which had no kitchen, refrigerator, microwave or TV, and we did not miss any of these "amenities." The Relais has excellent high-speed WiFi and host Greg was kind enough to prepare coffee, fruit and juice for us every day of our stay. Greg and his wife, Marie, also invited us to have wine and cheese with them one evening, and we had a fantastic visit with them. Greg and Marie are wonderful hosts who were willing to speak with us and provide recommendations, but they were never intrusive.

For us, the location of Le Relais was perfect. It is about 10 - 12 minutes from the Santa Fe square and is situated on 9 very quiet acres with beautiful landscaping and fantastic mountain views. The finishes and furnishings in our room were of 5-star quality, especially the luxury bath including a jetted tub for two. We had access to a full size refrigerator and freezer in the adjacent garage, which was all we needed.

Needless to say, we would recommend this spot without hesitation to anyone visiting Santa Fe that is looking for easy access to Santa Fe, but remote enough to feel like you are in the high desert. For two couples renting both rooms, Le Relais is an ideal spot, especially since the larger suite has a full kitchen.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in the casita with the kitchen and living room. It was a small private cottage, well decorated, warm, homey, and comfortable. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The bed was large and soft. Wifi was fast, and cell phone coverage was very good. Our stay exceeded expectations. The hosts were the best I could imagine. Greg is a great chef, and seemed to anticipate our every need, while not being intrusive. We stayed at the house much more than I expected, because it was so very pleasant. We did make one trip into town on Saturday for the farmer's market, which was fun, with lots of friendly local folk selling fruits, vegetables, crafts, art, food, and plants, with live music in the background. There are several restaurants nearby that are worth visiting, and the plaza is only 10-15 minutes away. We especially enjoyed Harry's Roadhouse, with its eclectic menu, only a mile or so away. The grounds are mostly in their natural state, with plantings in some areas that add interest (such as small aspen groves). The porch overlooks a pristine arroyo, with masses of colorful wildflowers. I enjoyed photographing the warblers and swarms of hummingbirds. The sunsets were amazing. You could barely see the neighbors from the house. We enjoyed the outdoor covered bed, and the table and chairs on the edge of the arroyo (amid aspens) for watching birds, sunsets, and the amazing sky. It rained almost every day (late monsoon this year), which only made the trip more interesting. I can still hear the distinct sound of the aspens in the wind. I am looking forward to coming back to this beautiful oasis of peace next year!

Beautiful, tranquil grounds. Zen-like casita

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived to this beautiful setting and Greg came to greet us, we knew we had chosen a great place to get away. The casita was very comfortable and the huge spa tub looking out onto the private sitting area really added to the experience. In addition to the private spaces, there were numerous other areas to relax in, all in a tranquil setting full of trees and wildflowers. We will definitely be back.
