very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

We visited with my two dogs. I was very nervous about this knowing that there wasn't a fenced in yard for my dogs to run around. I was reassured that the property was on 10 acres, but when we arrived we saw that this was not flat open useable land and the house was actually divided into two properties. The other property was also being rented by people with a dog. My dogs have a lot of energy and are not the biggest fans of other dogs, so the situation was even more difficult than I expected. Still, the house was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. We had a very nice stay even though it really didn't work well for my dogs.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments about enjoying the home. I wish you had called me about your request for where the dogs and you could hike as there are so many places to hike and trails for the dogs down the 10 mile stretch of Ojo de La VAca where the home is located. All of our previous guests have had great experiences with their dog walks on the grounds and nearby. Next time, please call and ask as your stay could have added more hiking experiences for the dogs. Again happy to hear you enjoyed the home and come back and see us.

Just Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped out of the car to the fresh, pine scent, this home was wonderful. For our trip to Santa Fe, we wanted to be in town at various places & meals, but we also wanted a place to read, relax, enjoy the mountains & fresh air, so this was the perfect place for us to stay. We could spend 2-4 hours in Santa Fe, & have an afternoon of quiet relaxation, and still go back for dinner if we chose. The house lacked nothing and had wonderful light, SW furnishings, and a wonderful sunroom for napping or reading. The hardest part was deciding where to spend time since there were so many places inside and out that welcomed you to sit awhile. One might wonder about the last "leg" of the trip, but that narrow dirt road ended at a fabulous place. The owner was willing to help in any way and seemed available if we would have needed assistance. We had a delightful stay!

Fantastic Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I'll start off by staying that I normally do not leave reviews; however, this place warrants one. I wanted a private secluded place for my wife and I to unwind for the weekend and this place delivered. Very quaint and cozy...the home is an attached home so there are neighbors next door; however, we didnt see them once and never really heard them. The way the porch and fire pit are setup make it feel as if you are all alone in the mountains! I was looking something with true a true Santa Fe feeling/vibe and this place was it...tons and tons of character. There are some imperfections about this home on its interior, but thats really what make it so special. Overall, we are extremely happy with our stay and will be staying here again in the future! Cheers!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed on the Casa de la Vaca while visiting Santa Fe for a concert. The casa was so nice that our only regret was not staying longer. The interior is cozy and filled with light. There are several outdoor areas to soak up the sun by day or gaze at the stars by night. We enjoyed both! Little birdies visited the bird feeder while we sat in the dining area and humming birds came to the feeder in the fire pit area. I thought that was an especially nice touch because I love to see birds that are different from what I see at home. I especially enjoyed how quiet the setting was and that's exactly why I did not want to stay in Santa Fe proper. I highly recommend this lovely casita.
