HOW TO GET THERE - GUEST ACCESS
4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles for a smooth ride up the hill - the house sits on its own hill top!
New Mexico is mountainous high-desert terrain and Santa Fe is at 7,200 ft.
All other types of cars only if the driver is used to driving them in mountainous terrain! Good tires are always a plus. An alternative is to park on the bottom of the driveway and walk up to the house.
Our driveway is curved and a bit steep for those who are used to driving only in metropolitan areas, but is not a problem. It is 80 ft. long and well maintained. It is common in the hills surrounding Santa Fe - to reach the top you have to go up!
Take it with momentum, stay in low gear and don't stop until you reach the parking area on top!
During the WINTER MONTHS when there is SNOW ON THE GROUND 4-wheel drive and winter tires are a must! If there is too much snow, one can park on the bottom of the driveway and walk up to the house. We have a snow removal service in place to clear the driveway, but if there is too much snow and ice you might have to wait for the streets leading up to the neighborhood to be plowed. Most of the time, even if there is a big snow storm, the snow will melt off within 24 hours once the sun comes out.
We do have 300 sunny days a year!
Seton Village/Sunlit Hills, is slightly rural and the views are very expansive; the house is 2,100 sqft. and sits on its own hill top on 6 acres in one of the most desirable neighborhoods of Santa Fe, with a 10-minute drive to town.
Parking is available on top at the house for four cars.
We know our guests will bring charm and grace to our home and would not do anything that a sophisticated adult shouldn't be doing!
For bookings in 2018: During Thanksgiving, Xmas and New Year's Eve there is a 3-day minimum stay.

About Claudia Zorn
Santa Fe offers an extraordinary lifestyle filled with both culture and natural beauty. My husband and I have each been involved in contemporary art galleries in Santa Fe, New York and San Francisco. I am from Austria, and my husband was raised in California and France. We are passionate about exploring new countries, and we especially love introducing other travelers to Santa Fe, one of the most unique places in the world. Beyond travel, our life is filled with our two children, two dogs, hiking, interior design, fine wine, opera, jazz, and classic films.
Claudia Zorn purchased this House in 2015

Hannah, September 2017 We stayed here for a girls' weekend in Santa Fe and were immediately super impressed by Claudia's communication and generosity when she allowed us to check in early so we could unpack and relax. The views from the Hilltop Skyhouse are breathtaking. Claudia's note about renting an…Read more Yash, September 2017 Great great place. Claudia was responsive at all times. Place was super clean. View is just so beautiful from the apartment that photos won't do justice to it. Gabriella, August 2017 Beautiful, beautiful home and views! We loved watching the New Mexico sunsets from the balcony, and the home was extremely spacious and clean. It was a short trip to town and nice hiking trails, but honestly, could have spent our whole trip on the balcony!

Even more spectacular than advertised!
This Skyhouse is quite unique, sits high on its own hilltop with incredible views of Santa Fe and the distant mountains.
The interior of the house is most unusual, spacious and opulent. Two large bedrooms, lovely kitchen and dining/entrance area and a gorgeous lounge area, replete with faux fur throws and comfort everywhere. The sheets and towels are new and luxurious. We had everything provided to make our stay comfortable.
We really don’t want to leave this house, it is spectacular and definitely a Christmas to remember!
Thanks Claudia for all the information and help you provided. I would be very interested to find out the origin of the historical photographs on the walls. Are they reminiscent of this current house? Deborah and Family
Comfortable home and stunning view
My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay in this bright, spacious house with its stunning view of Santa Fe and surroundings. For our needs, which didn't involve heavy use of the large kitchen, the house was near perfect. Bathrooms are small but bedrooms are huge and beds are comfy. A dresser in the guest room would be welcome. Be prepared to wake early with the sun--not an issue in the fall and winter months. Driving up to the house was a breeze with the 4X4 rental.
A Challenge and Reward
My two adult daughters and I experienced a LOVELY time at Hilltop Skyhouse.
Getting up the steep drive way was definantly a challenge! But with Claudia and Peters help and instruction, we made it! And then it was fun! The house is emaculently clean and so bright with all the windows and white cotten curtains.
The views were endless and the sky was beautiful! Thank you to Claudia and Peter for putting so much thought, love and effort into the house. It was a wonderful short term home. Pamela Cash
The wine, the view! We really enjoyed our stay! Clean, cozy, beautiful mountain top home.
Everything was so special, down to the live orchids in the house. Thank you for a lovely stay. Loved the view and the sunsets.
Beautiful views and the location to town is awesome!
Great experience! You do need a 4 wheel drive to get up steep hill! We had to park down below and drag luggage and groceries, but good exercise, but once you were at the top and saw the view it was all worth it!
Beautiful house, fabulous views
The house is lovely - clean, beautifully decorated, with everything you need. The view of downtown Santa Fe from the deck is amazing. The owner is so kind and did everything she could to make us comfortable - even brought us a load of firewood midweek. Our only tip is to be prepared to not have TV - only Netflix on roku. Not a big deal but something to be aware of.
Additional information about rental rates
Since many guests come from metropolitan areas: There is a steep but well-maintained 100 ft. long driveway. Take it with momentum and don't stop until you reach the top! Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive cars recommended, but size does not matter. Large mini-vans only with experienced drivers. When there is snow on the ground, four-wheel drive a must, and good tires are always recommended!
