The Guest House on the Hill is on two and a half acres with the owners' home in Tesuque, just five minutes from historic downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico. Your guest house has a living room with three French doors and an adobe-walled patio, both looking out to Santa Fe Baldy, Tesuque Peak, and the Santa Fe Ski Basin. There is a large master bedroom with a fireplace and king-size bed, a second bedroom with a queen-size bed, a sofa bed in the living room, and a fully equipped kitchen.
The owners, George and Donna Amos, live next door and enjoy passing on tips for exploring remote Anasazi ruins, mountain and desert hikes, cross-country skiing, museums, art galleries, Indian pueblos and dances, and restaurants. The guest house has a library of books on the Southwest.
George & Donna Amos, former teachers, now Realtors, have lived in Santa Fe for 35 years and enjoy welcoming people to their guest house from all over the world. We gladly provide suggestions for enjoying the mountains, mesas, opera, concerts, shopping, distinctive restaurants, museums, historic places, Anasazi ruins, pueblo ceremonies, skiing, hikes, and trips to little-known places in Northern New Mexico.

Donna was Teacher of the Year in 1976 in central Louisiana and taught there, at Santa Clara Pueblo and in Santa Fe.

Views, country setting in Tesuque yet convenient to town, cozy adobe-style casita.
Country quiet yet convenience to town, authentic Santa Fe adobe-style home with vigas (log beams), kiva fireplaces, patio with views.
The highlight of our trip was George's recommended trip to the Jemez Mountains - spectacular scenery, Anasazi ruins, and especially lunch at Los Ojos Bar and Grill, an authentic Old West saloon, with juke box, pool table, cowboys, Indians, elk and bear skins on the wall, and great buffalo burgers.
We have stayed in many different types of accommodations in the City Different over the years. We have stayed in big hotels close to the Plaza, quaint B&Bs, inns and other private residences but the House on the Hill has been our Santa Fe choice for the last five years. We look forward to returning and when we do, it feels like coming home. If we could stay anywhere in Santa Fe, it would be here. Oh and Thanksgiving 2015 is open this year because we're coming in October.
We have visited SF at least once or twice a year for around 8 years, and this is by far our favorite rental. George & Donna were incredibly kind hosts who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, and we will absolutely be back. From the wine & dessert waiting for us when we walked in, to sharing the story and photos of how they restored the home, they were so generous, and we loved everything about the house. It is easy to find and close to the Plaza, but because of its location, we felt far away from city life. It was incredibly peaceful and relaxing; nights were beautiful under the stars, and waking to the sunrise over the mountains was breathtaking. They have every creature comfort available for your use, and I loved that they were so welcoming of pets. Our dog Gertie had the time of her life! Our week in SF was so much more enjoyable knowing we had such a lovely bungalow to come home to after our adventures, and we are already looking at our calendar to see when we can return! Thank you so much, George & Donna--you are truly hosts extraordinaire!
For several years I have been renting this property. Obviously, I find it exquisite. The owners bring a very personal touch to all aspects of this rental -- indeed we all become good friends! With my dog in hand we explore all the lands surrounding us, plus day trips for adventures. If I elect to stay home, the 2 bedroom, 2 bath quirky guest house suits me just fine. Plus a fully equipped kitchen. Frankly I choose to return year after year to get my "fix" of the Enchantment!
So quiet and peaceful we could actually hear the Humming birds flying. This is a place like few others that have the charm of the old west with the modern conveniences. We particularly liked the location as it allowed us to take the Interstate to Santa Fe or take a small side road that was delightful and ended up right in downtown Santa Fe. Did we mention Santa Fe, which has grown ten fold since our last visit but was able to do so and retain it's southwestern charm. If I were to move and live anywhere...it would be Santa Fe and live in the mountains in this cottage! It was a great experience and we do plan on returning.
Your comfortable and cozy cabin, tucked in amongst nature and off the beaten path, offered us privacy, comfort and space.
Classical music, a bottle of wine, pastries and a well stocked pantry greeted our arrival. We felt like we might have stumbled across a family members home by accident but instead relaxed right into the owners gracious welcome and made ourselves at home.
We enjoyed the great floorpan, comfortable beds and furniture, a private patio and wood burning fireplaces in the living room and master suite.
We brought our adult children for a visit to Santa Fe and this darling Guest Cabin offered the perfect environment to settle right in and have a "home" base during our stay.
Five stars from us! We can't wait to return!
Four grown adults used to getting their way on everything. We survived eachother ONLY because out stay was even beyond our expectations. In every way.
