About the property

Two Beautiful Guest Casitas, Near Town But Has A Country Feel

Two guest casitas, one with a kitchen and shower , the other with Zen feel and amazing spa bath. Both have private sitting areas. A cool breeze and warm sun is almost always present in the summer. Beautiful wildflower gardens.

Would like like breakfast cooked for you each morning or just a few? Just ask. Want the fridge stocked from Whole Foods and the farmer's market ............just say the word.

We enjoy serving you.

About Greg Lawton

Couple 50ish, man and wife. We live on site and can help you plan your stay in historic Santa Fe.

Greg Lawton purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Greg Lawton chose Santa Fe

Looking for an oasis in the desert. You found it. Casitas immaculate, well furnished and 600 count Egyptian cotton sheets.

If you enjoy sitting outdoors in the sun or shade you'll love our wildflower gardens. The gentle rustle of the Aspen leaves are calling you.

You may not want to leave.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the well designed feel of Le Relais De Santa Fe. The modern design pays homage to traditional adobe design while incorporating modern design concepts. Furniture is modern rather than southwest. Most of the art is local and original.

In the final analysis it is the outdoor space, well planned and maintained that sets Terrain Santa Fe apart from other homes. Come find a place to sit near one of the fountains, or take a nap in the outdoor sleeping platform and later after a beautiful sunset, light a fire and watch the stars come out.

Santa Fe Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time. Greg was so welcoming and gave us a great tour of his property. He was very sweet with our pup as well. Additionally he offered us a FANTASTIC bottle of wine from his collection. The actual space is gorgeous. The bathroom is phenomenal. There is a massive jacuzzi tub that is very relaxing.

Tranquil and Rejuvenating!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent several nights on this property and loved it so much we extended our stay by another night! As flatlanders, but very much in need of a mountain retreat, this property was perfect for us. It's just far enough from town to feel like a true get away, but close enough to do things easily. The accommodations are well done and very comfortable. We had privacy and were able to unwind outdoors in various places on the property. The home owners Greg and Marie gave us pointers on the best places to dine, and we loved them all. We really enjoyed getting to know Marie and were sorry to have missed Greg (he was out of town). They both made our anniversary trip extra special! We won't hesitate to book again! Thank you, Greg and Marie!!

My husband and I have stayed in numerous VRBO properties over the years and this one ranks toward the top. Beautiful accommodations, gorgeous grounds and gracious, generous hosts. It doesn't get any sweeter than this!

Peaceful, convenient, and the most lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay close to the town of Santa Fe, yet a million miles away from the hustle and bustle. We opted for the cottage with the full kitchen which overlooked a beautiful meadow nestled in a valley. It was so peaceful and truly was a sanctuary. The hosts, who live on the property in a separate residence, could not have been more gracious. They were available to make our stay highly comfortable, and yet we felt like we had the property with so many wonderful amenities all to ourselves. The photos are humble in comparison to the beauty of the property. Truly an oasis that we hope to return to.

Loved relaxing at this hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

This casita is truly a hidden gem! The owners are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and the property is amazing. We stayed in Casita #2 and it was roomy and well-decorated. The little pavillion was also a wonderful spot to read and nap during the day.

The owners invited us over for wine and cheese and we had a blast visiting with them! They were concerned only for our enjoyment and relaxation while we were there. My husband is still raving over the huevos rancheros that Greg, one of the owners made him for breakfast.

We were encouraged to enjoy the whole property and the owners truly made us feel at home. We hated to leave but brought home such happy memories!

go there

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful hosts. Great location out away from the crowded town center yet easily accessible. You will not find any hosts more friendly and our casita was perfect for us. Did most of our own cooking and the peace and quiet were welcome. Small amount of traffic noise from nearby I25 but the closeness made for easy access and the accommodations more than made up for it. Great getaway in great city Stay here and enjoy the surroundings and hosts
