Why George Amos chose Santa Fe

Views, country setting in Tesuque yet convenient to town, cozy adobe-style casita.

What makes this cottage unique

Country quiet yet convenience to town, authentic Santa Fe adobe-style home with vigas (log beams), kiva fireplaces, patio with views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Wonderful Place to spend Christmas!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to spend the Christmas Holidays while touring the Santa Fe/Tesuque area! We arrived on Christmas Eve to find Christmas music playing, decorated and lighted Christmas trees in every room, a bottle of wine, and a pineapple upside-down cake on the dining room table...all for us to enjoy! Shortly after our arrival, we met one of the owners, along with her adorable dog, Buster (who befriended our dog immediately)...the owner was just making sure that everything was in order for our holiday stay at the Guest House on the Hill! We had a lovely stay...the adobe-style two bedroom two bath home was perfectly located for enjoying the sights around Santa Fe, Taos, Los Alamos, and Tesuque. Wood was provided for the two fireplaces (one in the living room and one in the master bedroom), which offered great ambiance during our chilly nights. The kitchen was very well-equipped for preparing a holiday ham dinner and pancake breakfasts (including herbs, spices, dishwasher, and refrig with ice maker). We appreciated the washer and dryer on the porch, especially after our socks got wet from a Christmas evening snowstorm (which provided a beautiful blanket of white all over Tesuque Hills)...We were located only 15 minutes from downtown Santa Fe, an Albertson's grocery store, and a shopping mall. The house was very comfortable, and the owners have provided lots of books and magazines to assist renters in finding the best sites, restaurants, hiking trails, etc. to make their stay extra special. There were plenty of towels, toiletries, blankets, pillows, etc. to make everyone comfortable in this typical New Mexico home. This rental was sooooo much better than staying in a stark hotel room during Christmas! The owners even lit the traditional farolitos (paper luminaries) on the patio ledges on Christmas Eve, to give us that taste of Santa Fe style! And we saw farolitos everywhere that we went during our evening travels in the area! It was so wonderful to be in New Mexico for Christmas!!! Thanks to the owners for going the extra mile to make it feel like "home for the holidays"!

An Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a resort-type property with pool, hot tub, daily maid service or ultra high end furnishings, then this isn't the place for you. If, on the other hand, a large (at least for two), comfortable guest house with great views in an extremely quiet neighborhood is what you're after, you should consider the Guest House on the Hill.

It is a brief drive from downtown Santa Fe in a small village. We found that we liked leaving the busy, and sometimes "touristy" downtown behind at the end of some days in order to head back to the relaxing confines of the guest house, before going out to dinner at one of the excellent locations recommended by the hosts.

Sometimes we spent our days hiking and sightseeing, again based on George's and Donna's recommendations, gathered in our case by reading the binder of suggestions they provide. They are also very willing to provide suggestions personally. We enjoyed both the Tent Rocks and the Jemez mountains/Bandelier National Monuments a great deal.

The owners live right next door, but you would never know it unless you decide to ask a question or seek some help.

Casual, comfortable, quiet - we really enjoyed our stay.

Thanksgiving Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Nov.11-25, 2012
Returning again to the Guest House on the Hill was grand and made even more pleasurable by an extended stay. It had remained as delightful as we remembered in our mind's eye: the magnificent view, fire in the kiva, birds at the feeder, the seasonal touches .....all of which made it a perfect Thanksgiving retreat. This year we enjoyed simply living there. Not to say we didn't frequent mornings at Clafoutis(French bakery and restaurant) for breakfast...who can resist cafe au lait in a bowl? We discovered Santuario de Chimayo this year and visited several times as well as the nearby restaurant Rancho de Chimayo.....the nachos grande were just that. Thanks to George and Donna for being such gracious hosts....and remember Buster "GO HOGS". We are already planning our next visit; see you then.

Charming Guest House in Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
We felt welcomed the minute we arrived to this charming guest house. Owners had music playing, a bottle of wine, a cake, and bowls of candy. Loved the adobe style, antiques, beautiful artwork and native-design rugs. A clean, comfortable place with charm galore. Very convenient location. Well equipped. Loved the patio. The views and the surrounding area are beautiful. Would be conducive to accomplishing artwork or writing, although we were here strictly here as tourists. New Mexico and Santa Fe, in particular, are beautiful. They draw you in. I can see why so many people move here. There are lots of things to do, places to go, history to learn, and beauty to see. New Mexico people are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. A trolley tour of Santa Fe gave us an informative, interesting overview. Then we visited a few galleries, museums, historic sites, the Plaza, Canyon Road. We visited Madrid, Chamayo, Taos, Los Alamos, Pecos National Park. Enjoyed just driving around to see what we could find. Ate some great food -- loved Tomasita's and LaChoza. Tesuque Village Market is very convenient and has a lot to offer. The owners were very nice to deal with and the guest house was a great place to call our temporary home.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
The moment I walked into this place it felt very comfortable and homey. There was a homemade pineapple upside down cake and bottle of wine waiting for us. The cake was delicious. I was here for a girls weekend and we had a wonderful time. The home is very well stocked and very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the patio soaking in the peacefulness and amazing views. I really enjoyed the location too. You are very close to everything but yet don't feel like you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We had a great time at the Tesuque Flea Market which is minutes away. I could go on and on. I highly recommend this place and I plan to go back with my family.

This is a gorgeous location and comfortable place to stay. We arrived on the snowiest, coldest day of the year to the warm and cozy guest house on the hill to find Christmas trees lit in every room, gingerbread cookies, music playing and a bottle of wine on the table. George and Donna are generous, helpful yet unobtrusive hosts. The house is fully stocked with all one would need. The location was peaceful and stunningly beautiful yet you are truly less than 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the plaza. We hope to go back when the weather is warmer so we can enjoy the patio!
