About Owner/ Manager
Married for almost 30 years, one of us almost moved to Santa Fe in the 80's, but stayed on the East Coast because ... she fell in love with the other. We love to travel, love to nest, love art, love food, and hospitality runs in our blood.
Owner/ Manager purchased this Guest House in 2013
Why Owner/ Manager chose Historic Eastside
An authentic adobe home with buttressed thick walls, gleaming plaster and deep window wells, the shapes echoing a Georgia O'Keeffe painting, pulled us in the first day we stepped inside. We had to make it ours. We had a vision for the backyard, which was raw earth before we installed a native garden that surprises thoughout the year. Two blocks from Canyon Road, we walked by in a softening snow fall from Art Feast the very first weekend, smelling the piñon in the air. Tucked into the hill, The Casita at Cerro Gordo is the perfect retreat, wired for wifi, cable and the 21st century. We have had a great time finding the best of everything to give our guests a unique experience they'll always remember.
What makes this Guest House unique
Our guests say it best: "Your little casita provided us the comfort of a home with all the amenities anyone would ask for during a vacation break. The location is terrific and viewing the beautiful New Mexican sunsets while sharing a bottle of wine on the patio made for a great week. We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness in providing quality furnishings and appliances. We really wanted a memorable Santa Fe experience and the little casita at 1 Cerro Gordo pulled it all together. Thanks for sharing your Santa Fe casita with us."

This property is both gracious and comfortable. The unexpected surprise is the outdoor oasis.
The owner provided every amenity beginning with a warm greeting by the owner's representative. The property is exquisite!
Excellent experience in all respects.
Found everything as described and first class. Owner/manager very helpful and informative. Highly recommended.Beautiful home great location exceptional art work. We will be coming back
Exquisite. Cozy. Perfect location.
This adobe hideaway is so perfectly quiet and beautifully decorated. Everything was comfortable and easy to use. But most of all, the owner's taste is exquisite, and we were discovering little touches of hospitality everywhere. Best of all, the best of Santa Fe is an easy walk. We walked all over the place, took in lots of art, visited the up-and-coming hot spots, got out to some of nature's amazingness. I can't recommend enough. We especially liked being there in the off-season without the summer crowds.
Thank you! So happy to hear you had a nice time and enjoyed our home. Nothing makes us happier. And thank you for being such a pleasure to host ... loved the photo of our lilacs! Happy May!
A Christmas dream...
First off I'm a fan of Santa Fe, and in particular the historic Eastside. I've stayed in VRBO properties for years in this area and Jennifer's property is the perfect 1 bedroom tucked just off of Canyon Road and only minutes to downtown for those that like to walk. It has been completely remodeled with a beautiful kitchen and bath and much thought went into this property. We stayed the week of Christmas 2015 and the snow was heavy yet property stayed warm and fireplace was easy to use. This property is tucked at the top of a small hill and very quiet. The host could not have been more accommodating, reachable, and professional yet warm. She was a delight to deal with and loves to share her "city different" with guests via links to events, restaurants etc...
The modern furnishings were a refreshing change and the king sized bed was very comfortable and appreciated as I think the mattress is often over looked in most of these high end properties. I'd stay here again without hesitation and would love to come back in the Summer months whereby we could use the awesome outdoor space located at the top of the property. This space is truly unique!
We were so happy to host Susan for the holidays. Christmas is such a special time in Santa Fe, and it mean a lot to us that we had a guest staying in our home who felt the love we've put into it. Susan is also a fantastic communicator and that was important to us. We'd love to have her visit again this summer when the lavender is blooming and the hummingbirds are flitting about, or just about anytime for that matter. She's the kind of guest anyone would be happy to host. Thank you Susan!
What do we love about our home? Slow morning coffees under the dome of blue sky in our private hillside garden watching the hummingbirds feed and when we're lucky, take a tiny bath in our well-fed rock fountain, the quick three block walk to some of the best restaurants on Canyon Road (breakfast/lunch at the TeaHouse, dinner at Milad Persian Bistro or El Farol, Geronimo and the Compound), the way the stars, moon and planets arc overhead at night. You're closet to everything, but a world apart. A generation of artists called our casita home when hosted by Sheldon Parsons, you may find yourself wanting to use the colored pencils in the bedroom desk drawer to sketch the light on the hand troweled walls and the ever changing flower displays.
