Wonderful family vacation
Rass Mandall is an exceptional getaway. We booked it for the private pool and fell in love with the entire experience. The Mountaintop views were unparalleled and made us feel like we were in a different country. The property had so much to offer with its private yoga retreat, the observatory, nearby hikes, the fire pit and the many entertaining areas inside and outside of the house. We hope to one day return.
Funky Mountain Haven
We had a fantastic experience at Rass Mandal. Starting with a very warm and personal reception by the owner, Richard, we settled right in to this unique and spectacular home. The outdoor area, pool, and view are so beautiful that we rarely left the property. It’s a quiet, relaxing oasis just 15 minutes from the Santa Fe plaza and Canyon Road galleries. Even when we had dinner in town we raced home to sit on the huge deck and watch the stars come out. A memorable stay! We’ll be back. Thanks, Richard!
Thanks so much for staying at Rass Mandal and you were wonderful guests. I do hope you'll be able to return one day. Stay well and best2U Richard
Richard and his house were wonderful. Our whole family enjoyed the peaceful location and magical house.
COVID-19 Cancelled our stay
Our stay was cancelled while we were enroute to Santa Fe from Oklahoma. We were in constant communication with Richard regarding conditions and restaurant closings in Santa Fe. Several friends have shared nightmare stories of cancellations without refunds from other booking companies for their Spring Break trips. Richard and HomeAway placed the priorities of our stay above their needs to book revenue. Although we were not able to stay at Ras Mandal, it will be the only place we will consider for our next visit to Santa Fe strictly because of the professionalism and courtesy extended to us from Richard. Book this property. Owner is top shelf!
Out of This World
This property is so special. It is one of the most interesting and beautiful places we have ever stayed. It has all the amenities one could possibly want for a relaxing getaway. The location was perfect, with easy access to all the art and restaurants in town, plus the privacy and space we prefer. The furnishings, art and overall vibe of the home are just beyond cool. Richard was an excellent host and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this vacation spot.
Right from the front door of Rass Mandal, you can either hike or mountain bike the Ponderosa Ridge to Hidden Valley Road down to Wilderness Gate Road and right into town via Canyon Road or the Old Santa Fe Trail. There are so many choices to enjoy - renewing both the body and spirit! Additionally, if lucky on the walk, you may spot coyotes, mule deer and a variety of birds and birds of prey.

Why Richard Woodruff chose Santa Fe
Rass Mandal has unique architecture and is on 20 acres with fabulous unending vistas. It is in the mountains for easy access to hiking and mountain biking yet only about 10 minutes from the center of Santa Fe. The feeling in these hills is truly refreshing and energizing!
What makes this House unique
Staying at Rass Mandal provides a unique atmosphere that is not found at most vacation rentals. The house and grounds offer abundant space for renewal & reflection as well as exercise & sharing. We have also invested in renewable Solar Technology for heating the home and the pool; keeping our environmental footprint to a minimum.
