There is an inspiring scenic walk to the nearby Ft. Marcy park and then on to the plaza in just 10-15 minutes (or just hop in your car and be there in 5 minutes).

The venetian plaster walls boast important art collections handed down through our family. There are grand 12 foot tall ceilings with beautiful wooden vigas and stately 8 foot tall doors. There is a generous full length covered portal along the living room and back of the house with large full view windows overlooking a natural valley, with the Jimez mountains and sunsets as backdrops.

About John Hogg

As a 5th generation Texan, we furnished the home with many family western antiques and collected art to mix with the Santa Fe atmosphere. Although a physician in Austin, TX, we love to escape to the beautiful mountains vistas at our home in Santa Fe.

John Hogg purchased this house in 2008

Stunning yet warm and inviting - Felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

This home had it all... The views were amazing and went on forever.... We woke up every morning with a spectacular view from the master bedroom upstairs. The downstairs bedrooms had equally nice views. John was so nice and stayed in contact with us through the entire process, from the time we booked the original dates all the way through the day we left.

We were welcomed with a beautiful basket of goodies, the kitchen was fully stocked with tons of dishes (although we didn't use many) and glasses. The outdoor patio/deck is where we spent most nights enjoying the sunsets with a glass of wine. The home was walking distance to downtown but you could also drive down Artist St. and park even closer to town if you didn't want to make the walk.

The home came with a very nice washer and dryer which made it great since we packed relatively light on this trip. We were very impressed on the ease of checking in and checking out. John had perfect instructions and made the process effortless which we greatly appreciated. John also provided us with a list of activities and restaurant recommendations, we tried many of them and were equally impressed.

We have been coming to Santa Fe for years and I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences due to the beautiful home we stayed in and the great service that was provided. We will be back again - Can't wait!

Thank you John for allowing us the use of your beautiful home!

Relaxing Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my daughter had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home, we stayed for 9 days. I have rented many vacations homes throughout the years and this home sticks out in terms of hospitality and amenities, with extras when you may run out (ie: bathroom towels, laundry detergent. Oh! love the fact that they have Hypo allergenic laundry detergent. That is the only thing I can use and we were shocked to see they went that extra mile to try and cover everyone!)

We were welcomed by a big and pretty gift basket filled with goodies and a greeting card from the owners.

Since we were on vacation, we didn't plan on cooking much, but brought ingredients for dinner, incase we didn't feel like going for food after the long drive; which is what happened. The kitchen is stocked! It had everything we needed to make our dinner, including the ingredients we forgot to bring. After that long drive, we were very thankful for that!

The house is inviting, spacious and open through out, very clean and well kept. You can tell the owners actually take pride in their home and spend time here.

The spacious back porch was peaceful and energizing with that mountain air breeze in the morning.

Lastly, the house is in a great location. While close to the mountains and out of the way of tourists; it is close to downtown, shopping center for groceries and the like, a park, and hiking trails.

The owners were gracious and helpful. I would highly recommend this property!

Gorgeous, open concept home with large gourmet kitchen and majestic view of the Jemez Mountains.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for our family trip to Santa Fe ... Santa Fe style and spirit, beautifully appointed. It was a joy cooking in the large kitchen and sitting on the back balcony enjoying the sunset. The owners, John & David, are as fantastic as everyone states in other reviews - very warm & welcoming. The home is close to the Plaza but just enough removed to suggest privacy & a comfortable remoteness about it. Did I mention the gorgeous view of the Jemez Mountains? Thank you John & David for sharing your lovely home with us. Can't wait to return! The Schwartz Family.

Incredibly Fabulous House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible place!!! Our second visit and hope to make it an annual event. BEAUTIFUL Home which feels more like a retreat with stunning views of the mountains and skyline. The deck is the BEST - has table for outdoor dining or just sitting and taking in the glorious view. Owner has impeccible taste; it is immaculate and equipped with everything. Very private setting. Owner is fabulous. GREAT location - 2 minutes to town in gated neighborhood. You'd be hard pressed to find a more awesome rental!!!
