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 cottage 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 cottage 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."

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have thought of a ton of detail with your place and it was appointed nicely. Bed was super comfortable, it's nice that the unit is tucked to the back, fantastic location, beautiful inside and out and had plenty of hot water. I'll be reaching back out to hopefully book something as we move toward the Summer months. Would love to use the garden on a warm Summer day. A nice surprise indeed!

Exquisite. Cozy. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Christmas dream...

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!

Car: recommended

You probably already know all the reasons you want to visit Santa Fe: from wandering the historic streets, to visiting our many art museums, to walking famed Canyon Road for its galleries and shops. Or you're hear for the spiritual aspects: yoga, the Zen spa retreat Ten Thousand Waves, a visit to Christ in the Desert or the Upaya Zen Center. Or you want to hike, ski, cycle. Attend Native ceremonials. Drive the High Road to Taos to see the scenery, visit ancient cave dwellings in Bandelier National Park, learn more about the birth of the atom bomb at Los Alamos. There is so very much to do in Santa Fe and we would love to help you plan activities to make your stay memorable. You're off to a great start with us as you'll be staying in a historic adobe home with every modern amenity.
