Just before New Year 2010, the Biscochito House was recreated from an artist couple's residence and gallery into an ideal vacation residence only 3 short blocks from Santa Fe's downtown Plaza. And it just gets better every year. Quality and attention has been placed into every detail of comfort, convenience and pleasure pairing with the quiet, private and historic neighborhood for guest hospitality.
One bedroom has a gorgeous queen bed, leather arm chair, antique bureau and good closet space. The romantic second bedroom with king bed also has tasteful appeal with complementary furnishings and museum-collected artwork. Adjoining the king bedroom is a jewel-like twin bedroom with handpainted armoire and small TV. Fresh with fluffy towels and stunning tile, the bathroom adjoining the queen and king bedrooms offers a tub/shower. The house sleeps 4-5.
The light-filled open living room and dining room design invites at-home relaxation with adjustable mood lighting. Up to 6 chairs fit around a long country-style dining table and there is a convenient desk for laptop use with an excellent lamp. Watch a movie on the 32' Preferred Cable//DVD flat screen TV or - depending on the season - swing on the cushioned front portal porch swing, stretch out on the lounge chair by the grapevines while food is browning on the back patio barbeque, or gaze into the crackling wood burning brick fireplace.
The kitchen has everything you need - gas stove/oven, microwave, full-sized refrigerator, D/W plus coffeepot (and complimentary specialty welcome coffees), toaster, blender, colorful plates, wine goblets, and - yes - a full set of stainless pots and pans, cutlery ... it's all there! And a full-size washer and dryer (W/D), too.
Park your car safely beside the house. In fact, park 2-3 cars, if need-be. You may be driving off for day trips, but otherwise, those cars might just sit there while you walk to fabulous nearby restaurants, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Fine Art Museum or New Mexico History Museum (just opened a year ago), or for groceries or movies or performances at The Lensic or to attend an event at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center just up the street one block.
Other amenities: Free Wi-fi or ethernet cord provided. A/C in bedrooms and kitchen that cools the house nicely augmented by ceiling fan and portables for heatwaves. Assistance with planning and recommendations (especially for restaurants, museums and music) by the owner/manager - a professional and resident in Santa Fe for 31 years. Exceptional and timely massage available by a Nationally Certified massage therapist makes your vacation a retreat or enjoy a private artist studio tour by arrangement. (see art tabs at www.victoria-rogers.com). Guesthouse available for rental for 2 additional guests.
