See Santa Fe from a luxurious Eyrie on top of the world! That's how you'll feel at Dorthia Garden Retreat & Views, a gorgeous estate on more than an acre overlooking both the city and the mountains.
To say that the views from this large home are "panoramic" is to diminish them: in truth, they are breathtaking in both scope and beauty. Wherever you look, you see either the snowy Sangre de Cristos, the twinkling lights of Santa Fe, the rolling foothills leading down to the Rio Grande Valley, or all of the above! And you don't have to be outdoors to do it: this home is full of enormous, floor-to-ceiling plate-glass windows that can make you feel as though you're hovering over the canyon. You will never, ever tire of the views from Dorthia Garden!
From the moment you pull up on the sweeping drive and see the fountain, you will know you're in for something very special at Dorthia Garden. Ornately carved double doors lead you into a huge common area, bathed in sunlight and furnished with a wealth of ultra-comfortable sofas and chairs. Flop down on the sectional or stretch out in the leather armchair, kick off your shoes, and revel in the knowledge that you need do absolutely nothing except enjoy your vacation in paradise!
One of the best features of Dorthia Garden is its spaciousness. Viga ceilings, a huge fireplace, handsome pillars, and a low dividing wall help to define the common area, but nothing is crowded, from the wide hallway to perfectly-placed furnishings. Your big group can really spread out here without bumping elbows, which contributes to the sense of calm and quiet you will experience even when the kids' computer games are beeping and the grown-ups are cheering over the big game on one of the many HDTVs.
Tear yourself away from this scene of comfort to admire the well-stocked kitchen and dining areas (there are at least 2!) in this house. The kitchen is curved, filled with light, and boasting the latest stainless-steel appliances (including 2 fridges and a second sink in the central island). All you add is groceries; everything else, from cookware and dishes to chef's knives, gadgets, and countertop appliances, is ready for you here.
Adjacent to the kitchen are two dining rooms, each with tables seating 6: one with a cozy breakfast-nook feel despite its large size and jaw-dropping views, and the other with even more panoramic vistas that suggest you are jutting out over a cliff! Hard to imagine a more spectacular setting for meals, games, and family gatherings.
And while the common areas are lovely, the bedrooms at Dorthia Garden are designed for total comfort and pampering. The master suite includes a king-sized bed, full fireplace with a mantelpiece, inlaid viga ceiling, desk, pair of easy chairs, and en-suite bath featuring Jacuzzi, walk-in shower, towel warmer, and dual vanities. You will never want to leave!
The other four bedrooms are all spacious and perfectly appointed, each with a queen-sized bed (one featuring a heavenly canopy, just right for the romantic in the group!) and access to one of the 4.5 bathrooms at Dorthia Garden. Luxe linens and towels await you here, plus a full laundry room to keep all those vacation togs fresh, no matter where your adventures take you.
And the outdoor spaces are just as beautiful as the interior of this home. Several patios offer a mix of sun and shade for your enjoyment during the warmer months, and covered areas provide shelter when the snow begins. There is plenty of seating out here too, so consider dining al fresco and enjoying 360-degree views!
Dorthia Garden may seem to be away from it all, but it's just a short drive north of the city, within easy reach of the Santa Fe Opera, Ski Santa Fe, and the myriad attractions of the Plaza area. No matter what your group wants to explore in northern New Mexico, you have the ideal home base for luxurious comfort when you stay at Dorthia Garden!
