This old-world historic adobe estate offers an escape from today's fast-paced life and an opportunity to step back to a time of rich New Mexico heritage. Our property sits on 3 lush acres in the Santa Cruz River Valley with views of the Sangra de Cristo mountains. We are conviniently located just 25 minutes north of Santa Fe.
Our home sleeps 10 in beds* with 4 large bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms, 7 fireplaces, library, sunroom, bar, swimming pool, hot-tub, private creek, veranda and a nearly 2,000 sf courtyard. One of the bedrooms is detached from the home and offers another layer of seclusion and escape. This room is fitted with a sitting area, kiva fireplace, small refrigerator, Nespresso coffee maker, soaking bathtub and spacious shower.

The space
Our home offers a 4,500 square foot villa behind a private gated entrance. The home is situated amongst 200+ year old cottonwoods, weeping willows, colorful gardens and meadows. The elements of style for which this property is known – authentic adobe brick, hand carved furnishings, rough-hewn beams, Native American artifacts, rugs, and colorful folk art – are all wonderfully featured throughout our home. Centrally located just 25 minutes north of Santa Fe, the property's origins date back to the early 1800's when it served as the stagecoach stop between Santa Fe and Taos along the El Camino Real. All rooms have exterior entrances while three can be accessed from within the house. It's a bit funky as its a restored period piece with with the original layout.

The Santa Cruz is rented exclusively to one party at a time. Unlike most vacation rentals, The Santa Cruz can host corporate events, reunions, workshops, retreats and weddings up to 150 guests. ** Couples have the freedom to plan their wedding or event their way with chair and table rentals onsite and unrestricted choice of outside vendors. The charming mission-style chapel on the property was one of the earliest constructed in the area. Today, this sanctuary, which we call El Sagrado (meaning "The Sacred"), welcomes couples of any faith and spirituality as an intimate venue for their big day. Our property also features several other outdoor options for your ceremony and reception, including a hacienda-style courtyard, multiple outdoor spaces, including flowering gardens, tenting options and beautiful landscaping with mature trees.

* Home has accommodations for up to two additional guests.
** Since The Santa Cruz is an event space, guests are restricted from holding any type of events where over 15 total guests are invited, without approval in writing by the Owners. Contact us for a fee schedule. For any events, the pricing options that are quoted in AirBnB or VRBO do not apply. Please contact us for event lodging pricing.
