About Kris Linton
We have been involved in historic preservation in New Mexico for over 35 years. This property had sat vacant for several years and the adobes were crumbling. The family was no longer interested in keeping the houses due to the large number of repairs. We had restored old houses before but not quite to this magnitude. We worked with a number of artisans specializing in adobes and plaster. The results have been very well received by local residents and guests alike. We made the choice to preserve the house in a manner that would allow others to experience living in an old yet modernized 19th century adobe.
Kris Linton purchased this House in 2014
Why Kris Linton chose Plaza Vieja
The houses that are located on more than a half acre outside of Old Town were virtually caught in time. We felt we would like to save the houses rather than see them demolished and new structures built in an historic neighborhood.
What makes this House unique
The house has walls that are almost a foot thick. Some of the floorboards were from the Santa Fe railroad. It is decorated with antiques and vintage artwork and has a few items that were left on the property.

The place to remember
We loved the history behind restoring this beautiful Casita! You are special people for sharing this special place for the rest of us to enjoy. You made us feel welcomed from the time we walked in and saw all the goodies and thoughtful notes, art and writing the history of all the people that lived here. It was very clean and fun place to stay. Thank you so much we will be back! Cindy and Kevin
Wonderful stay in Old Town Albuquerque u
I stayed with Kris for 2 months, November/December and totally enjoyed the historic home along with the holiday season in Old Town, 4 minute walk. The weather was cool but with bright sunshine and beautiful fireplace the stay couldn’t have gone any better.
Beautiful furnishings. Great location for museums and Old Town. Wonderful place.
Location Location Location
We absolutely loved this little house! The location was just perfect - across the street from a large, beautiful park that our dogs loved and just the other side of the park is Old Town. We could easily walk to all the shops and restaurants in Old Town - there is even a museum nearby. We just left our car parked under the shade trees behind the house and were able to walk most everywhere we wanted to go. The house is well appointed yet quaint, historical, and pet friendly which is exactly what we were looking for. The area is quiet and safe. The homemade empanadas were delicious and such a nice treat! We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for providing such a lovely place to enjoy Old Town!
Clean and well tended
Great roomy cottage
This is a great place to stay, especially if you have a pet. It has 4 large rooms and a fireplace, and it really does feel like home. Walking distance to old town too.
