THE BEST AVAILABLE! HISTORIC ADOBE HOME IN OLD TOWN ALBUQUERQUE

Albuquerque House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

The Old Town house in the museum district is an authentic adobe, built c. 1902. A recent systems update adds modern comfort to the rustic Southwestern charm of this old territorial style house. Across the street from Tiguex Park, and about a block and a half from historic Old Town Plaza, the location is unmatched. Three bedrooms and two baths accommodate 6 (2 queen beds and 1 full bed). The en suite master bath features a claw foot tub, the second bedroom has a gas kiva fireplace, and soft lighting is achieved in all three bedrooms with chandeliers.

An open floor plan connects the living room and kitchen. All kitchen appliances are stainless. An adjoining sitting room (with its own kiva fireplace) allows views of the park through a side lit French door. The dining room seats 6 comfortably.

With original wood floors, beamed ceilings, and foot thick walls, this house evokes the romance of the Old West, and is a fantastic base for your Albuquerque adventures.

Trip Advisor - Things to Do in Albuquerque: Duke City FIx: For a daily dose of Albuquerque pictures (as well as local commentary), see the Duke City Fix web site. Photos are posted on the Albuquerque Photo Gallery near the top of the DCF home page. People post new ones daily, and there are often spectacular shots of the Albuquerque scenery.

A Couple of Restaurants: Here are a couple of local restaurants of note (there are many other fabulous ones in Old Town, and throughout Albuquerque, but these are a couple of my favorites):

The St. Claire Winery and Bistro - great food, often live music, and local New Mexico wines. About a five minute drive (with traffic).

For those who are eating gluten free, try Paisano's. Yes, gluten free Italian, and it is wonderful.

Seasons - within walking distance - upscale, great food, good service

U.S. Naval officer out and about in the world. I head for New Mexico whenever I get the chance, and have excellent support staff for the house.

Carol Prather purchased this house in 2007

I have become enthralled with the New Mexico vibe, and Albuquerque in particular. Found myself looking down range at Navy retirement (just a few years now (!)) and bought a 100+ year old adobe house in Old Town. Perfect eventual home plate and launching pad for further adventures. Have really enjoyed sharing the Old Town house with people who seem to enjoy Albuquerque just as much as I do.

The combination of an outstanding location adjacent to much loved Tiguex Park, and within steps of the museums and the plaza, is hard to beat. While restaurants and shops are easily accessible, the location of the house itself is quite calm. The house is full of charm and character, and old adobes sleep very well. It is fairly routine for balloons to launch at daybreak from the ballon park, and often their flight path takes them over Tiguex park, which makes them visible out the front windows as they approach.

Wonderful!

5 of us stayed at the Old Town House for a conference at the Hotel Albuquerque. It was absolutely perfect. The house itself is full of charm and lovely surprises. We highly recommend taking a bath in the clawfoot tub and chatting over glasses of wine in the quite large patio out back. The cozy atmosphere was a great change of pace from the conference, and it really felt like coming home. The location was extremely convenient for our purposes, only 5-10 minute walk to the hotel and 10-15 minutes to Lowe's the nearby grocery store. It is also just down the street from two museums and across from a beautiful park!

Beautiful, comfortable, in a great location

We loved the house--perfect for us (a couple traveling with our adult son and a close mutual friend) and perfect as the launching pad for our New Mexico reunions and side trips. It was always comforting to return to our beautiful adobe on Old Town Rd., which was very roomy, clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The owner has created a book of lucid, helpful, well organized instructions that leave nothing to guesswork.
The impressive Albuquerque Museum--great gift shop--is just down the street, and a museum of natural history (which we didn't visit) is equally close. Good, casual restaurants--Cafe Azul and the legendary Duran Pharmacy (it's a pharmacy with a restaurant) are close by, as is the Golden Crown Panaderia, a stunning bakery (don't miss the empanadas--especially pumpkin, which we had fresh out of their oven).

Great stay in Old Town

Great location! Easy walk to Old Town & museums. Nice to have park across the street. The house was very clean and very roomy for 6 of us. Bathrooms were small, but to be expected for an historic house. Loved all the towel racks! The house had all the expected amenities. Washer/dryer had to be replaced during our stay, but the owner was very responsive and accommodating. The house was plenty warm with the fireplace! I did appreciate the security system, too.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Historic Adobe Home in Old Town Albuquerque. Our stay couldn't have been more perfect! The location was great. The house was fully equipped and comfortable. Not to mention, the character and charm of the house which was beautiful. It gave our guests, who had never visited NM, the ultimate NM experience!

Car: recommended

The house fronts Old Town Rd., a quiet street bordering Tiguex Park. The park is a place of towering cottonwoods, grassy fields, and a first rate playground. This is a walking neighborhood, with people out with strollers and dogs into the evening hours. Immediately across the park are several museums (Art and History, Science and Natural History, and Explora - the children's science museum). Excellent restaurants and interesting shopping are within leisurely walking distance. The Albuquerque Biological Park, including the zoo, aquarium and botanical gardens, is a short drive away.

Logistics are easy, with a short ride from the airport, a mile and a half to the train station and Convention Center, and about 1 hour to Santa Fe.

Albuquerque was recently ranked one of the five best cities in the U.S. to live in. The culture in the area is amazing and there is always something of interest going on. Come and enjoy!

Other Activities: Museums & Theaters (I-Max)

Ski: According to Google Maps, Santa Fe Ski area is 1 hour and 2 minutes from the house. Closer to town is Sandia Peak Ski Area, about 45 minutes away. Some drive to the Sandia Peak Tramway in the Northeast Heights, and take the tram to and from the ski area.
