If you head north to the end of the street and then turn left you will run into the La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa (just around the corner). There you can book massages and treatments, eat a meal $$-$$$$ or just enjoy the intimate fireplace in the lobby and architecture that highlights the magic of the southwest.
Continue walking further down the street to 106 Faithway and you'll run into Absolute Nirvana--a luxurious spa specializing in exotic Balinese spa and facial treatments.
Just a little further down Palace Ave. you might want to enjoy breakfast at Chez Mamou French Bakery & Cafe $$. The lemon tarts are my favorite!
There are several more great restaurants on E. Palace including La Casa Sena $$-$$$ and The Shed. $$.
As you pass the shops on E. Palace you will certainly want to take a peek in at 109 E. Palace. This was the secret headquarters of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the head of the Manhattan Project who recruited scientists to live and work in Los Alamos.
You will be close to the Santa Plaza if you continue on E. Palace. There you will come across Native Americans from the surrounding Pueblos selling their jewelry and wares in front of the Palace of the Governors. These Native Americans have been selling wares for centuries at this very same place!
The Palace of the Governors was originally constructed in the early 17th century as Spain's seat of government for what is today the American Southwest, This adobe structure, now the state's history museum, was designated a Registered National Historic Landmark in 1960 and an American Treasure in 1999.
On most days you will find activities abuzz on the Santa Fe Plaza. More great restaurants surround the Plaza. Enjoy a brewery beer and pizza from the balcony of Marble Brewery $-$$ as you "people watch" from above or if you decide on breakfast—try the Blue Corn Pinon Pancakes or the sinful to die for French Toast at the Plaza Restaurant $-$$ right on the square.
Also downtown you will find New Mexico History Museum located at 113 Lincoln Avenue
And just a few blocks away don't miss out on the fabulous Georgia O'Keeffe Museum located at 217 Johnson St. It is dedicated to the life, art and legacy of Georgia O'Keeffe.
Don't forget to stop by the Cathedral or enjoy arts and crafts by local vendors in the Cathedral Park. Across the Street from Cathedral Park is the Native American Museum.
If you head towards San Francisco Street stop into the La Fonda Hotel. The Pueblo-style architecture features thick wood beams, latilla ceilings and carved corbels. Special touches such as hand-crafted chandeliers, tin and copper lighting fixtures, and colorful tiles add character and charm. Beautiful hand-carved and hand-painted furniture and displays by local artists create a rich ambience. La Fonda has always been a local gathering spot and a hub of activity with two restaurants, one indoor bar, two patio bars and several shops. Frequently you will find music and dancing in the evenings.
Two of our favorite restaurants can be found on San Francisco St. The San Francisco Bar and Grill is excellent for lunch or dinner $-$$ and Tia Sophia's is great for breakfast $.
There is a Star Bucks on San Francisco St., and you might want to check out the Lensic Performing Arts Center located at 211 W. San Francisco St.
You can get tickets to concerts and performances at the box office or (email hidden)e historic Lensic Theater is an absolutely beautiful building reminiscent of the grand old theaters. It was one of two movie theaters we went to as children when I was growing up in Santa Fe. It was built in 1931.
Of course on the way back you must not forget to visit the Miraculous Staircase found at the Loretto Chapel which adjacent to the Inn and Spa of Loretto located at 211 Old Santa Fe Trail. The Chapel itself is beautiful but more importantly the staircase known for its unusual helix shaped spiral has baffled scientists and architects for years. IMO it is a "must see". During most days there is an artisan market in the courtyard outside of the Loretto Chapel.
The bar at the Loretto often provides wonderful classical guitar music by the fireplace in the beautiful and comfortable lounge.
Walk south on Delgado and you will run into the famous Canyon Road where you will find dozens upon dozens of Art Galleries. You can spend entire days browsing through the art, sculptures and many artifacts you will find on this road.
Restaurants on Canyon
The Teahouse $-$$ (Open 8-7, all week) on Canyon Rd is another great place for breakfast and lunch. Enjoy your meal or tea on their pebble stone patio in the sunshine. The baked goods are usually very good as are their salads. The coffee drinks are a little better than average. Casual atmosphere, great magazine selection for design and fashion. They have the NY Times.
El Farol on Canyon Rd. $$-$$$ Check out their entertainment line-up, everything from salsa night, to blues bands, to trivia night (Monday). They have a tapas (small Spanish plates) menu, as well as a dinner menu. There’s usually a place to sit at the bar and get to know people, visitors and residents alike
Geronimo's on Canyon $$$$ offers fine dining. But don't be intimidated, go inside and check out the inner bar room. The friendly bartender will make you feel at home. There is a great bar menu. For a more formal evening, the restaurant has excellent service and top-notch food and wine. The building is from the 1700's.
The Compound $$$$ Small portions, expensive—but some people enjoy it.
Cafe Artiste $-$$ Casual breakfast or lunch. It is west on Canyon close to the Paseo de Peralta. Friendly, small, coffee and pastries, crepes.
Downtown Subscription is at the corner of Garcia St and Acequia Madre. Nice coffee shop with loads of magazines to peruse. Patio out back and in the front. The espresso drinks are decent. Lots of local people. The coffee shop is on the corner in a strip with a nice book store, photography gallery (Photo-eye). Pick up the local paper out front.
Kakawa Chocolate House on the Paseo de Peralta is a darling chocolate house offering delicious hand crafted chocolate creations.
Old Santa Fe Trail
At the corner of SF Trail and Alameda is the Bite $-$$ where you can get one of the best burgers in the USA or continue South and you will find the Guadalupe Café for lunch or dinner $$. The food is consistently delicious and is one of my favorites. For a casual lunch or dinner you might want to try a gourmet pizza at the Upper Crust. Two other noteworthy restaurants are the Pink Adobe and the Rio Chama Steak House. At the end of this block you will find yourself at our State’s Capitol fondly referred to as the Round-House.
Most of all the popular attractions in Santa Fe are an easy walk downtown or Canyon Road from this convenient apartment location. Also bicycles are available for site-seeing. Public transportation is available at the corner of Delgado and E. Alameda. (Three houses away from the apartment).
My husband and I spent two nights in this lovely apartment. The location is perfect. You can walk to all of the interesting down town sites. It is well equipped and Bernadette was very easy to communicate with.
It makes for what feels like a very authentic stay in beautiful Santa Fe.
This was my first time using airbnb and what a great experience it was! I can honestly say that it could not have been any better. Everything was just as described and Bernadette provided more than enough information and things to do within walking distance. I texted a question to her and she replied immediately. This was the best experience and if all my future airbnb experiences are like this one, I'm in for a great time!
Great location, good space, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is a postage stamp, however, and not for the claustrophobic. The windows look out onto.... cars in the driveways! Aside from letting in light, the windows have zero views. And the front windows have slats that even when closed left me feeling too exposed to the outside. Lots of small comforts - food in the refrigerator, plugs by the bed for electronics recharging.
We stayed at Bernadette's for three nights and had a lovely time. The casita is in a great location, within walking distance to everything downtown. It was clean, comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. Bernadette was great, very warm and hospitable, and respectful of our privacy. Overall we had a very positive experience.
Bernadette's heavenly studio is ideal for two people visiting Santa Fe. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed the short walk from Bernadette's to the Plaza several times. The accommodations she offers are excellent--comfortable bed, cozy kitchenette, off-street parking, and everything tastefully decorated. The fridge was even stocked with breakfast foods. It all made for a wonderful experience. I recommend Bernadette and her B&B most highly and hope to stay there, again.
Bernadette's place is great! The location cannot be beat. You can easily walk to the plaza, Canyon Road, great restaurants and galleries. She makes the place so cozy and welcoming. I used to live in Santa Fe and when I walked home from work I would admire the houses on Delgado Street with the bridges. I loved that I got to stay in one! This is likely the most affordable place to stay in the area and it's great to feel like you're a local. I highly recommend Bernadette's casita and I will definitely stay there again.
Bernadette's little slice of heaven is perfect for walking to and from the Plaza area. Bright, clean with a super comfy bed and the softest blankets ever! When we arrived it was toasty warm and very inviting. Bernadette popped over to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed and we definitely did. Very sweet setup for breakfast and coffee in the morning and a nice variety of local maps and reading materials for the first time visitor. If you are looking for a place that feels like home and is just a short walk to the Plaza, this is the place!
Bernadette was very accommodating and the casita is cozy, comfortable and convenient. We had a 9 month old baby and the kitchen was great. Bernadette was kind enough to leave a small food processor so we could make baby food. Also, we could walk to Canyon Road (literally across one street) or downtown Santa Fe. She called us to make sure we had everything which was much appreciated. We would certainly considered staying again if our path takes us back to Santa Fe.
I had a very excellent, quiet, comfortable time in Bernadette's
lovely cottage. Great location and definitely I would stay there
Bernadette's casita was cozy, warm, and clean. I also really appreciated her flexibility when I wanted to check in a little earlier! I would highly recommend staying here.
