About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Only five minutes from downtown Santa Fe, yet undisturbed from any city noises, the Tesuque Hill guesthouse shares two and a half acres of land and stonewalled gardens with the owners’ home. It is a separate cottage with spectacular views of the Tesuque valley and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. A private stone patio with fireplace on the view side and a covered porch on the garden side surround the entire house so you may take full advantage of the beautiful views or the pleasant shade of the garden. In the spring, summer, and fall, the intimate glow reflected off the sunlit Sangre de Cristo mountains lights the lush green valley. In the winter, after a snowfall, the valley's bright pristine snowscapes are dazzling.

Your guesthouse is a Santa Fe style home with vigas, wooden ceilings, and tile floors throughout. It is decorated with exquisite ethnographic art. Inside the house you find a spacious fully equipped kitchen and dining area with a French door to the patio and a comfortable living room with a fireplace and large view windows. The bedroom has a queen bed and a French door opens to your private patio. You may enjoy the views even from the bathroom, which has a large tiled bathtub and a separate shower. In the living room a queen sofa bed can sleep two additional guests. Built-in closets offer plenty of space for your belongings.

The home is within comfortable walking distance of the famous Tesuque Village Market, El Nido, Shidoni Foundation and sculpture garden, and the Windsor Trail. It is only minutes away from the Santa Fe Opera and the historic Santa Fe Plaza.

The owner, William Siegal, loves meeting people from all over the world and sharing tips to discover the unique attractions of Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico.

Why The Owner chose Tesuque

Very private and quiet country setting minutes from downtown. Secluded hiking and running trail right from the house.

We especially love the unique views and light our home offers of the Tesuque valley and the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. We enjoy making these pleasures available to our guests. Our guesthouse is decorated with rare textiles and objects from pre-Columbian, Asian, and African cultures from the William Siegal Gallery.

Guestbook comments from the owner

8/18/10 – 8/24/10: We found this guest house from a friend that has a house in the same area. This was a charming one bedroom guest house with amazing views. The owners, who live in the main house are very welcoming and really went out of their way to make us feel at home. I look forward to going back and having a glass of wine on the porch while I watch the light play against the mountains. We had a great time!!

comfortable,well appointed and good location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well located, very comfortable, and perfect for relaxing after full days exploring the area. The views from the house are lovely, the fireplace warming, the art work amazing and the kitchen stocked sufficiently for simple meal prep. Songbirds on dawn patrol and coyote songs at night bookended our days. William, though out of town, was very prompt in responding when we had questions, only sorry we didn't have a chance to meet and thank him personally.

Peaceful nature at its finest

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the property, and once again, it did not disappoint. The huge patio is our favorite--the views are incredible, and all the birds (including a friendly little hummingbird) singing their songs and flitting around make for peaceful afternoons and evenings enjoying the views. It's still close enough to town but far enough away that you don't have all the city noises. If you are looking for seclusion or a romantic little getaway, look no further. This property is cozy and has all the amenities you need. And get ready for the best shower water pressure in your life! Already looking forward to a future stay here. Thank you, William!

Lovely stay at Tesuque Guest House.

  • 5 of 5

The guest house is very comfortable in all ways. Bed and bedroom comfortable, kitchen well provisioned for cooking in and patio delightful for relaxing. The cottage is close enough to Santa Fe for easy trips in to town but removed from and above town so away from the hustle and bustle. Great and funky restaurants in nearby Tesuque Village that are recommended. Hosts allow complete privacy but are immediately accessible if needed.

Beautiful honeymoon stay

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to stay in Billy's guest house for a second time for our honeymoon in April.

Our favorite things about this property are still the spectacular views and the amazing amount of storage. We had a full week's worth of supplies, plus wedding attire, gifts, a ton of leftover beer and wine, and we were still able to put every single thing away.

Our dog loves to stay here, too, because of the excellent dog run area out back.

Thank you for another fantastic stay!

Enchanting stay in the "Land of Enchantment"

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to describe a magical experience. But staying in Tesuque in this wonderful casita was just such an experience. My wife and I were celebrating her birthday and it was all we hoped for. Great hosts, a beautiful setting and a cozy place to ourselves. We love to hike and there was plenty of that right out our front door. The views and sunsets were breathtaking while we enjoyed a glass of red wine on the casita deck at happy hour. Santa Fe was close enough to head into town whenever we wanted (5 minutes) but we were secluded enough that we felt like we had a private getaway in the mountains. We will definitely be back.

Gorgeous property, tons of storage, very dog friendly.

  • 5 of 5

This property is the best casita that we've ever rented in Santa Fe. It's spacious, the views are amazing, there is so much storage that we felt like we had moved in, and Billy was so accommodating to our dog that she felt like she lived there, too. We will definitely be back.
