Photos and Description of this Historic Eastside holiday cottage

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath w/ four fireplaces

Tucked away on a historic street, Casa de la Boda (the Wedding House) offers the perfect east-side location for your Santa Fe adventure. Located just two blocks from Canyon Road and short stroll to the Santa Fe Plaza this lovingly remodeled two-bedroom adobe home blends the charm of it’s historic roots with the modern conveniences of a comfortable lifestyle.

A rambling flagstone patio with kiva fireplace and hot tub greet you as you enter the property. Inside, each bedroom offers an en-suite bath and private fireplace and W Hotel-brand pillow top mattresses (1 King, 1 Queen) ensure a good night’s sleep. French doors from both the living and dining areas open to the patio to create a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living. The home is bathed in light from skylights and the bedrooms and living areas are kept comfortable by a central evaporative cooling unit. Radiant heated floors greet bare feet each morning in the winter. Just outside it’s courtyard walls are two, private parking spaces.

Named for the generations of the Garcia family (Garcia Street) that built a home on this lane each time a family member married, Casa de la Boda continues a rich tradition of life and love for everything Santa Fe has to offer. Permit No. 16-00135481

About Rick Tackett

As former residents of Denver we loved coming to Santa Fe on a regular basis. Now that we're locals we wanted to create a place that's perfect for a small family or two couples to come and soak up the local arts and culture.

Now, when the property isn't being enjoyed by guests, we'll spend a couple days there and walk to all the things that attracted us to Santa Fe in the first place.

Why Rick Tackett chose Santa Fe

We purchased the property before it even went on the market. It just took one look at the courtyard area and the quallity of the home (remodeled by a Denver architect about 10 years ago) to see the potential as the perfect getaway.

What makes this cottage unique

Hot tub and large private courtyard w/ kiva fireplace

two, en-suite baths

Central evaporative cooling ( a great asset in a dry climate!)

Washer/Dryer in master suite closet

Private parking for 2 cars

Four fireplaces

Sub Zero refrigerator

Jennair gas range and outdoor grill

Flat screen TV's


Comcast cable

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm happy to post a positive review.

We looked everywhere for that frisbee - not sure how we missed it!

Thankfully, we have many replacements so feel free to wash and recycle for

the next guest or one of the local rescues.

Thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful casita and bring our dogs.

That made our always wonderful trip to Santa Fe even more special. We couldn't ask for better customer service.

Have a wonderful spring and hope to see you again soon!

Outstanding Santa Fe Casita

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, as well as another couple who are good friends of ours, spent a week at this Casita, following a four day visit to Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta, in October, 2016. We had an absolutely wonderful stay in this lovely home. The decor is classic Santa Fe, and the home is supplied with everything vacationers might need for a comfortable stay. It was such a wonderful visit that we look forward to the next opportunity to return to Santa Fe and stay in this lovely casita.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year. We returned because we liked it so much. It is close to canyon road and even historic downtown, by foot. The property itself is very nice with all of the amenities you could ask for.

Beautiful, Quaint Adobe!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this beautiful home and had a great time! The home is on a quiet dead-end street so no traffic noise at all! The home is nicely decorated and well maintained, we enjoyed the private courtyard daily for lunch and our own happy hours. It was the perfect size for 4 people and our dogs! Perfect location to get to all the sites and restaurants of Santa Fe! We had to contact Rick with a few questions and he was very quick to respond! We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Perfect Santa Fe experience! Cute, cozy, and clean. Also, the house is in a great location and within walking distance of the Canyon Road and the plaza. Would highly recommend this house to anybody!

Car: recommended

From Casa de la Boda you are close enough to the plaza to hear the church bells of St. Francis Cathedral, walk to town or make the two block stroll to Canyon Road's 100+ galleries, shops and dining. And, just a block away, is Santa Fe's infamous Downtown Subscription coffee shop and the best Cafe Mocha and magazine selection in town.

Major festivals and activities include: Santa Fe Opera season, Santa Fe Folk Art Market and the world famous Santa Fe Indian Market.
