Authentic Adobe, Gardens, Hot Tub: Perfect for Families

Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 5

Bright and authentic adobe, located on 5 acres in the foothills. Serene courtyard with cedar hot tub. Nestled among pinon trees on a secluded road - a serene rural setting complete with a hiking trail out the back door, while offering the convenience of being only 7 miles from the historic plaza.

The guest house is a 2 bedroom / 1 bath pueblo style home of 900 square feet (accommodates 4 comfortably in the two bedrooms, but a sofa bed in the living room can sleep two more). It offers privacy, with a separate driveway and walled courtyard. We have been gradually updating the guest house, but you will find that it maintains its authentic Santa Fe style and rustic charm. Bright open-plan kitchen / dining room with colorful Mexican tile counters, and wood, brick, and flagstone floors throughout. It is fully furnished, and the kitchen is fully equipped.

A charming outdoor courtyard area is enclosed by a commanding and artful hand-built adobe wall complete with perennial flower garden, landscaping, and mountain views, where you can sit and relax or cook dinner on the gas grill.

Beyond the courtyard there is a play fort for children, vegetable gardens, and a beautiful walk in the arroyo, which is shaded by cottonwood and ponderosa pine trees.

A cedar hot tub (accommodating up to 6 people) awaits in a secluded courtyard. Perfect for stargazing or relaxing sore muscles after hiking or skiing on cold winter afternoons or cool summer nights.

Guests enjoy a lovely welcome basket with fresh baked bread and, seasonally, fresh vegetables and flowers from the property's gardens. Jason has been brewing beer for 20 years and is proud to offer a sampling of what he has on tap and a bottle or two of your favorite, upon request. Our electricity, including the energy to heat the hot tub, is 100% solar. With your cooperation, we recycle your containers and compost your food waste for use in our gardens and greenhouse.

About Angela and Jason Kirkman

Angela and Jason have been married for 21 years. We enjoy cooking, gardening, and brewing beer. We have traveled extensively and love to photograph and glean recipes as we explore the world. We are incredibly proud of our three children, ages 19 16, and 12, and are very busy following them in their various pursuits. As a family we enjoy hiking, skiing, and camping in the Sangre de Christo Mountains.

Angela and Jason Kirkman purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Angela and Jason Kirkman chose Santa Fe

We fell in love with this property when we first laid eyes upon it. We were attracted by the unique and funky design of the structures and the tranquility of the tree-lined arroyo. On one hand it is on 4 1/2 acres and affords lots of privacy and plenty of space for gardening, and on the other hand it is a quick drive into town. In fact, we bike into the plaza area several times a week, often taking the Rail Trail, which passes close by out home.

What makes this cottage unique

Our guest house offers plenty of private outdoor space, which we always value when looking for accommodations, especially when travelling with children. The kitchen is large enough and well enough equipped to easily and comfortably cook a wide variety of meals. There is less light pollution out here in the South East Hills, and the stars are incredibly brilliant at night. Enjoy them while reclining in the hot tub.

Great family getaway, cute and homey

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for our family: a room with twin beds, an outdoor area for them to explore, a cozy kitchen and living room area for eating and hanging out and, of course, the beautiful hot tub. The bathroom is central in the house and has doors leading in from both bathrooms and the kitchen, so it's not a very private room. This was okay for our family, but might be a bit weird depending on how much you value your bathroom privacy. The property has a very nice homey vibe. The hot tub is beautiful and sitting in it under the stars is magical. Great choice if you're looking for something away from the main drag that feels like a real home.

Unique traditional adobe guest home close to Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted with flowers, fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables when we arrived. The owner, Jason, was very helpful with recommendations specific to our interests! The view from the large kitchen windows and the front porch were fantastic. Loved the experience!

Wonderful stay, particularly for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy adobe home. This was the perfect place for our family with two young children. After long days of touring Santa Fe, being able to come back and free free space to hike, play, and jump on the trampoline was a real gift for the kids! The home was so comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. The hosts, Jason and Angela, could not have been kinder or more accommodating. We particularly loved the gifts of fresh veggies and herbs and the beer tastings! I highly recommend this house, especially for young families looking for a home base in Santa Fe.

Beautiful quiet place, still close to town

  • 5 of 5

It's a really beautiful gem, 15 mins from Santa Fe downtown, in a beautiful area right outside Santa Fe. The house is cosy and fits 4-5 ppl great.

Great stay at a funky little house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, just as advertised, and the owners were friendly and responsive. The layout of the house is a little quirky (all rooms open into the bathroom, basically), but we like quirky. Our family of 4 had plenty of space and no complaints. Hope we get to go back for a longer stay sometime.

Our flight was canceled the same day of our arrival. Jason and Angela aloud us to move the days of our stay one day without any penalty. They even received us with fruit and beer!

The house is confortable, well located and perfect for a small group!

The guest house shares the 5-acre property with the main house, which is also a beautiful adobe built in the early 1900s. The guest house is a separate structure with its own private drive, parking, gardens, and entrances.

Property owners, Jason and Angela, have lived in Santa Fe for ten years. We work, brew, and garden from our home, which shares our 5 acre property with the guest house. Given our proximity to the guest house, we are available to guests for key exchanges, site-seeing advice, and anything in between. We are avid hikers and enjoy pointing out the area's best trails. There is an easy arroyo path out the back door that joins with the Santa Fe Rail Trail. For more serious exploration, a short drive in almost any direction will take you into some beautiful country – the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Pecos Wilderness, or Bandelier National Monument. Jason is also a chef and micro-brewer and loves to recommend favorite restaurants and Santa Fe hot spots.
