For the single traveler, or intimate couple, this is a small historical adobe apartment across the courtyard from my other Canyon Rd listing. It has it's own kitchenette and full bath. It has 3 skylights and and 3 windows.
Queen size bed. High thread count sheet set, down comforter, plenty of soft pillows. Cozy bed!
It comes complete with 2 great Trek bicycles. Cruise around the prettiest neighborhood in style. There's a standing type bike pump and one has a basket in front. The bicycles are shared between the guests in Besos, across the courtyard, however. Occasionally they are in for service. Guests must sign a waiver prior to riding.
Free high speed internet! One dedicated off-street parking spot!
Cable TV on 26" Vizio flatscreen!
New Keurig Espresso machine with coffee and creamers.
Directly across the street from beautiful Monsignor Patrick Smith Park, tall trees and songbirds surround this historical area. It's a one minute walk to the gallery and restaurants that Canyon Road is famous for. Go to the Teahouse Restaurant for breakfast or lunch, dance it up at El Farol, the oldest bar in Santa Fe, or enjoy fine dining at Geronimo's, and walk home!
What's within walking distance:
100+ Art Galleries, of course.
The Teahouse (8-7, all week)
One block west on Canyon Rd. Great place for breakfast and for lunch. Enjoy your meal or tea on their pebble stone patio in the sunshine. The baked goods are usually very good. I also recommend the salads, one is a healthy meal in itself. 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 (website hidden)
Less than two blocks west 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. A place to sit at the bar and get to know some people, visitors and residents alike
A little further down Canyon, well into the gallery area, is a fine dining restaurant. 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. Recommended.
This is further by about two more blocks. I only dined here once and feel that Geronimo's is the better choice for the price range.
On Canyon rd, Nearly to Paseo de Peralta--about one mile from the Casita.
Friendly, small, coffee and pastries, crepes? …
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. It's a very nice walk: Go directly behind the casita onto Acequia Madre, and walk west. One of the most charming walks in Santa Fe! Keep going about one mile, passing an elementary school, until you see Garcia St. The coffeeshop 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.
Going past Downtown Subscription, cross Paseo de Peralta, to this darling chocolate house with hand crafted chocolate creations.
The easiest trail is right across the street! Just go through Patrick Smith Park and the other side is Santa Fe River, which runs along East Alameda St. It follows the river (a creek-size river), more or less, all the way across town, to West Alameda St. and the Plaza area, and beyond. Recommended for a partial walk, shop, eat, day.
Dale Ball Trails
Drive to this trailhead area by going East on Canyon, turn RT , then quickly left at the Stop sign. Now you are on Upper Canyon Rd. Follow this road about one mile and you will see a small parking area on the left.
Access to an inner courtyard with two fruit trees, wrought iron table, chairs, hammock, bicycles. Outer courtyard of of driveway with resin table and chairs., view of Monsignor Patrick Smith Park.
If I am here, I like to say hello and see if it's all to your liking and if there's anything you need. If I'm away, this can be done by text, phone or email.
The neighborhood is a visual feast. Bring your camera. It's slow-paced and full of pueblo architecture. The acequia is especially nice to view in summer and fall.
There is a bus stop only a block away.
Lovely studio and courtyard, although quite small. The drawback is that if the weather is cool, there's really no place to sit inside except the bed. The courtyard is a really nice place to hang out if the weather is good. Lisa was helpful, gave us a great restaurant recommendation that was one of the highlights of our stay. (El Farol, just down the street, with great food and great live music.) Really good location on Canyon Road, a block past the galleries so it's quiet, but near the action if you want it. Park across the street is nice too.
Lisa was a great host, the studio was cozy and well equipped and great location!
Lisa's studio C is on the cramped side of cozy but otherwise has all you need. Lisa is friendly, helpful - offering us the use of a cellphone during a medical semi emergency - and pointing us to good local restaurants. Parking was no problem.
Price of studio may be a little high but it is on Canyon Road and if you are here to see the Galleries then the location is very convenient.
We would happily stay here again.
Great place for a Santa Fe staycation :) The location of the studio is perfect for a couple or dog owner as it is directly across the street from a beautiful park. We had a great time chatting with a Canyon Road studio owner while his dog played with ours. As for the studio itself--it's adorable, clean, and super comfortable. Will definitely be back :)
Wonderful one night stop in Santa Fe. The place was perfect and a night walk down the lane was just what we had in mind.
Clean, warm, privacy from other guests and from the street. Just the right size for my husband and I. We locked up out bikes in private courtyard and put them under the existing cover with other bikes. Bring groceries with you to make simple meals. Bikes were a great thing to have with us. Great way to off-set expensive tourist-y restaurants and such.
Wow! What a way cool place to stay, as a single traveler. The bed was comfy, the bathroom had lots of elbow room, and the kitchen had everything I needed during my stay. The night time was hugely silent. The park across the street good for a walk and some river gazing.
The bed linens do need to be replaced, as they were all stained and old.
Lisa's place was exactly as described and location was absolutely ideal. My mom, dog, and me all enjoyed 2 peaceful and relaxing nights there. There's a great park right across the street, all the wonderful art galleries are close by, and two of my favorite Santa Fe restaurants are walkable (El Farol and Geronimo). Lisa's place is cozy and convenient. I loved our stay and if we're back in the area, I will look into her availability. Thanks Lisa!
What a delightful time I had at Lisa Bartoletti's Studio C. Her sweet dog Honeygirl and I became pals. Lisa is such a gracious and welcoming host. I look forward to staying there again as soon as possible.
We could not have been happier with our first experience in Santa Fe! Lisa provided us with a beautiful stay--great, comfy casita, beautiful courtyard, close walk to EVERYTHING, and wonderful recommendations. We will definitely stay again.
