Whether you're a gardener or simply a nature lover, this downtown Santa Fe home will thrill you! Flowers and foliage lean over garden paths, adding color and scent to this gorgeous 2-story home.
Historic Garden Retreat is steps away from the Plaza, yet this beautiful adobe house can seem quite secluded, thanks to generous grounds and lush gardens. It sleeps 8 people very comfortably in 4 bedrooms, and even boasts multiple living areas, a luxe remodeled kitchen, HDTVs and DVD players, and free WiFi.
Kiva fireplaces grace both the living room and its adjacent sitting room, a light-filled alcove with deep reading chairs and good lighting from a central lamp. There is also an informal den with a long sectional couch and big flat-screen TV, so your group can break up into smaller segments based on what everyone wants to do. Relax, spread out, and get comfortable in this roomy house!
Historic Garden Retreat is ideal for your large group. The kitchen here encourages chefs to have fun preparing Santa Fe's mouth-watering produce and tasty treats from the Farmer's Market. Stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and cupboards stuffed with cooking gadgets, pots and pans, and serving dishes all tempt you to fill the fridge with groceries and treat your gang to homemade pancakes in the morning or nachos at night.
There are several places to enjoy the feasts from the kitchen, too. A breakfast bar with bistro stools lets family members keep the chef company (and makes a nice table for the kids), while the formal dining room is a breathtaking sunshiny space boasting a chandelier and a long wooden table. Of course, you may also want to take food and drinks outdoors, into the garden!
As much as your group will enjoy the common areas at Historic Garden Retreat, there's nothing like a great night's rest on vacation, and everyone will happily settle into their bedrooms each night. The master suite offers a king-sized bed with a huge flat-screen TV and access to a lovely bathroom with shower and tub. You're certain to oversleep in these comfy quarters!
Three more bedrooms each feature a queen-sized bed, some with private TVs. Reading chairs, good lamps, and plenty of immaculately appointed space make these rooms restful and attractive. One even contains a kiva fireplace! And a second full bath gives everyone a turn during the getting-ready-in-the-morning rush.
Historic Garden Retreat is spacious, beautifully furnished, and ready for a crowd. You will find all the linens and towels you need here, plus extra pillows, blankets, and more. Our washer and dryer are ready to handle big loads. And you will stay as connected as you want to be during vacation, thanks to high-speed wireless throughout the house.
This house is designed for indoor/outdoor living. Big windows let the northern New Mexico sun pour into all the rooms, while there are also several sliders to access the outdoor spaces. In this big garden you will find a covered flagstone patio, an archway from front to back yard, and numerous garden paths winding among borders and beds. There's even a central fountain!
Best of all, when you stay at Historic Garden Retreat, you are in the heart of old Santa Fe, just minutes on foot from the Plaza and all the exciting restaurants, shops, galleries, and historic sites your heart desires. Walk a new route every time you leave the house, and you will discover so much more than any guidebook can show you!
Come stay at Historic Garden Retreat next time you're in the Santa Fe area. Let yourself be pampered by luxe furnishings and a beautiful flowering garden in the heart of the City Different!
