About Jake Finkelstein
We moved to NM in 1970 and found it to be truly 'enchanting.' The weather, scenery and culture of this part of the country can't be beat. Our property is located far enough out of town to be beautiful, quiet & private, but only minutes away from all the advantages that cities have to offer. We look forward to your visit. Jake & Robyn
Jake Finkelstein purchased this House in 2007
Why Jake Finkelstein chose Placitas
We love the area, and it is close to friends and our work. This community is one of the best & most desirable places to live in NM.
What makes this House unique
Drive in any direction from Placitas and the area changes so dramatically that you will feel you have traveled to another country. Santa Fe is the art capital of the southwest, and yet is only the tip of the cultural iceberg in NM. There are 6 Indian Pueblos & many historical sites nearby, and great hiking & biking right outside your door. The house sits in a high canyon valley overlooking the Santa Ana & San Felipe Pueblo lands, with the Jemez mountains & Cabezon to the west. Wild horses often wander down the slopes, and they may surprise you on your hikes. World Class Golf at the Tamaya Resort is 15 minutes away, and Paako is just over the mountain. Take a ride on the longest tram in the world to the top of the Sandia (means 'watermelon' in Spanish) Mountain Range and watch the lights of Albuquerque come on following a magnificent sunset. There is so much to do and see you will want to come back often. And of course, don't forget the largest International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in the world through the first two weekends of October. Let us point you in the right direction, whatever your tastes may be. Bienvenidos! Welcome to New Mexico!

Charming , clean and very relaxing
We had a great stay. It is a very quiet and relaxing place away from the noise of the city however it is close to shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend this place . The owners are also very friendly and accomadating .
Great location and hosts!!!
My family enjoyed our stay. Jake and Robyn were very welcoming and great hosts. The house was as pictured and very comfortable. We were not expecting how well stocked the house was with supplies; everything from kitchen spices to a sewing supplies. The location was great, very safe and pet friendly. We enjoyed the nature trails around the property and around Placitas. I would recommend their property to others.
Great Place and What a View!
We stayed at the home for a month and enjoyed it immensely! Jake and Robyn were terrific. Gorgeous countryside with some beautiful views. We hiked with our dogs almost every day.
What an enjoyable, comfortable and homey stay we had for 2 months! Jake and Robyn are wonderful hosts, the views and the surrounding nature is more than you can ask for. Such a comfortable and homey, and thoughtful western decor made us feel right at home. There are many walking areas closeby, as well as lots of things to conveniently see and do around Placitas, ABQ and Sante Fe/Taos areas- but yet we felt like we were in a secluded nature environment. We had a great stay and look forward to returning!
Excellent Accommodations and Amenities for Pets
We arrived very early in the morning and not only were we able to find accommodations for our horses ready and waiting, but so was Jake! It was very nice having the horses right across the driveway and a great place to ride the open spaces not far, like a ten minute ride. Sorry we did not take advantage of other riding locations during the visit, but maybe next time - this place is definitely on our need to return to list. The personal space was very large and well equipped for many needs, much more than we were there for. Owners do deserve the respect that they readily give their guests, they are very knowledgeable about the area and are ready to answer any question. The Ballon Fiesta is not to be missed if visiting at that time , but strongly suggest leaving earlier than you think you should as the traffic flow does not allow for mistakes and three times we were unable to get to the park due to traffic back ups. Again, looking forward to staying here again when next feasibly possible. Looking forward to riding more of the wide open spaces.
We are a short walk to 5000 acres of open space to hike, bike or horseback ride in.
