The bathroom is mostly private.
This room is in a comfortable and beautiful custom home with lots of artistic details. Located in one of Santa Fe's most stunning natural surroundings off the historic Old Santa Fe Trail. It is a 8 mile, 14 minute drive to the Plaza, but the drive is relaxing and beautiful, the neighborhood is safe and the nights are completely quiet, with amazing sunsets and starry nights. This is a perfect place to stay if you love being in nature, but not too far from town. Included is ample closet storage and a private full bath, laundry, use of the beautiful and well equipped kitchen, dining room and a fabulous landscaped outdoor space. The room has a bed with a comfortable queen size mattress, soft sheets, there is a comfy reading chair, DSL Wifi and a flat screen TV with Netflix streaming. Sorry, no cable TV.
Breakfast is not included, but there is complementary coffee and tea, toast and spreads if you didn't bring groceries. You are welcome to use the kitchen.
Harry's Roadhouse, one of Santa Fe's most popular restaurants with down to earth prices, is just 2 miles away on the way to town.
If you enjoy exercising, there is hiking right out of the door, some of the best cycling in town.
Main door into the common area. The room is in the opposite wing to my live and work space, so there is a good deal of privacy.
Other things to note
Please keep in mind that there are no stores or restaurants within walking distance. There are three popular and reasonably prices restaurants about 2 miles away, but the closest grocery or convenience store is about 4 miles away.
After turning off the historic Old Santa Fe Trail there is a private 400ft long single track dirt and gravel road, with a couple of slopes. No problem for any vehicle if there is no snow, but on certain days in the winter it can be a challenge. So between December and February I strongly suggest only booking if you have a four wheel or AWD vehicle with good tires and basic snow driving skills.
There is no street lighting in the area. GPS does a great job getting you here, but it's easier to find the right house in daylight.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, which we try to keep clean and neat. I would expect guests to have the curtesy to clean up after themselves, and ideally leave everything the way they found it.
An important note about winter bookings. While snow clearing on the main road is pretty reliable, the same does not apply for our driveway, which has 2 short climbs in them. So unless you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle with decent tires and experience with driving in snowy conditions I don't recommend booking with us in the Months of November until February. Even in October and March there is a slight chance of snow coverage.
Please text to update me on your arrival time. I will do my best to accommodate you if you need to arrive early or late.
I am a easy going and non judgmental person - respectful and polite. I am a professional furniture maker, and work out of my home shop most of the time. Don't worry there is no issue with noise - the wood shop is far removed from the rental.
I like people and I am always interested to get to know guests from all walks of life, but if you prefer to stay private, I have no problem with it whatsoever. Sometimes if I have to work a lot I tend to be a bit of a recluse. Other members of our household includes my fabulous 16 year old son. He is very brainy and an amazing acoustic guitarist, very well mannered and friendly. He lives here every other week. There is also our very mellow and sweet natured Dalmatian.
