Interaction with guests
The Casita sits on our property behind our house. Your front patio looks onto the backyard behind our house. We can interact as little or as much as you like...you can have complete seclusion, if you like, or hang out with us when we are around, typically working on the property or having some food and wine at day's end. Some guests have joined in, just to get their hands "dirty", harvesting from our garden or learning about traditional agricultural practices in New Mexico. Or we can go for a hike up the street or a swim in the local pool, if you like.
Quasi-gourmet, mostly vegetarian meals beyond the provided self-serve breakfast can be provided for an additional modest fee. Please note that for stays longer than 5 days, breakfast is not provided. All the tourist info you require is free of charge and graciously offered. No smoking is non-negotiable, otherwise we ask that you respect our beautiful antique bed, by sleeping as long and as deeply as you like, and enjoy this getaway with all your heart. You can bring, and kennel, your dog on the property for an additional daily fee.

We are an easy-going family of three. Scott is a salesman in the automotive industry and I am a museum and interior designer currently working as a sales representative at Santa Fe by Design, a plumbing and hardware showroom. Our younger son is a student at the Santa Fe Waldorf High School, and an aspiring large animal veterinarian. We share our house with Bella and Bodhi, feline and canine, and they love our guests without being over-bearing.
We spend a lot of time taking care of our land and also enjoy hiking, skiing, the arts, good friendships and all the cultural activities in this area. We are happy to help get you acquainted with all that northern New Mexico has to offer, even some activities which are not readily accessible to most tourists. Yoga studios, no problem, foodie interests, we have you covered, the arts in all its local iterations, hiking and biking destinations...even fly fishing pursuits can be supported during your stay. And we are happy to give you a tour of our riverfront property and either explain or demonstrate irrigation practices that date from the Spanish settlement and introduce you to our horse and cows. This is an authentic northern New Mexico home and community...a friendly glimpse into all our area has to offer. Feel welcome!
