About Marsha Pincus
As owner of this well-loved and beautifully appointed vacation rental, Marsha Pincus is excited to welcome guests to enjoy the creative and inspirational life style she's discovered living in downtown Santa Fe. Marsha is an educator, writer and visual artist who has relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico, after years of traveling here for writing retreats and other creative projects. She taught English and Drama in Philadelphia for 34 years, where several of her high school students had their original plays produced off-Broadway. She has the distinction of being the only Philadelphia public school teacher to win the Teacher of the Year Award twice - in 1988 and 2005. After her retirement in 2008, Marsha reconnected with her own creativity and began writing seriously while also studying printmaking, photography and mosaics. And it has been quite generative! Creator of a one woman show, "Chalkdust," Marsha’s screenplay "Small Steps" won honorable mention in the 2016 Screenwriting Festival. Her collages and mosaics have been shown in Philadelphia galleries. A teacher at heart, Marsha has been serving as a Creative Consultant to other writers, leading writing groups and designing workshops for accessing and developing the creativity of post-career women - a topic very close to her heart. She is also a trained "Storyhealers" facilitator who works with groups of people to write, shape and share their stories of courage and healing on local stages. Please come and let the Biscochito Holiday Casita share its charms with you.
Marsha Pincus purchased this House in 2016
Why Marsha Pincus chose Downtown
Prior to purchasing the Biscochito Holiday Casita,, I had been coming to New Mexico for many years, drawn here by the natural beauty of the landscape and the vibrant art, theater and writing scenes. I first stayed in the casita as a guest in 2014 when I was working with a local director on a one woman show. I had seen the listing on VRBO and thought that it would be a good place for my seven week writing retreat. Turned out it was PERFECT!!! Just the right size, perfectly equipped, quiet and private, the casita provided a comfortable home away from home where I could write undisturbed during the day and enjoy the plaza at night. In 2015, I fulfilled one of my dreams when I returned to Santa Fe to perform a staged reading of my show "Chalkdust." And in 2016, I fulfilled a second dream when I became the proud owner of the very casita that had been the source of my inspiration and creativity. I made a few changes to make the casita especially amenable for writers and renamed it Two Ravens Studio, in honor of the couple of ravens who live in the nearby trees. Known as messenger birds in many cultures, these two ravens offer protection and inspiration to all who stay here. Whether you are here to work on a creative project, to see the sites and enjoy the cultural life, or you just need some quiet time for yourself for meditation, Two Ravens Studio is ready to welcome you.
What makes this House unique
Guests to Two Ravens Studio will find all the benefits of a quiet retreat just blocks from the famous Santa Fe Plaza with museums, restaurants and world class shops and galleries. The brick patio, enclosed by a rustic coyote fence provides privacy and additional living space for Spring, Summer and Autumn. Fully equipped with everything one needs to live comfortably, the casita is perfect for those planning a short visit to Santa Fe or for those wanting a longer stay to explore all the culture and natural beauty that Northern New Mexico has to offer.

Loved the Casita! Marsha was great! Not in our way but there if we needed her! Absolutely loved the location! The casita was perfect for us. It is small but for 2 people worked great for us.
Great weekend in Santa Fe
My wife and I enjoyed Memorial Day weekend in Santa Fe using Two Ravens as our base. Clean, quiet, private and great location. Easy walk to The Plaza. We will be returning!
We had a great trip and stay. The place was clean and comfy; wonderful location! Marsha was welcoming and very responsive.
Extremely clean, convenient to downtown Santa Fe! Thank you
Great Casita, close to the plaza.
Very nice place to stay, has the Santa Fe flair. Clean comfortable. within walking distance to the Plaza. Very cozy, it could use a couple of clothes hooks and a luggage rack. Has old Santa Fe charm. We would stay again. Owners were very accommodating, they let us check in a bit early. We would recommend this casita to anyone wanting that unique experience in Santa Fe.
Thank you for your suggestions! Luggage rack and extra hooks will be placed in the casita very soon! Come again!
Casita with great location
If you're looking for a cute casita in a quiet Santa Fe neighborhood for a single or a couple this is a great choice. It's a short walk to the plaza, so you don't have to worry about parking, and it's close to museums and great places to eat. The casita is equipped with everything you need to be comfortable and if you need anything additional, you'll find Marsha to be a flexible and accommodating host. Thanks Marsha!
