Off the beaten path, but close enough to walk to the Plaza. On a quiet street about half a block from the Georgia O'Keefe museum. Colleen's breakfasts were *amazing* - fresh fruit (3 varieties, diced into bite sized pieces) 2 kinds of juice, coffee, tea, protein (usually eggs from their chickens) and a carb. Breakfast quesadillas, stuffed french toast, breakfast burritos, all with home made syrups/sauces. Enough food to last you til dinner if you grabbed a granola bar and some bottled water on the way out - We stayed 5 nights. Shaan was a wealth of information, warmth, and hospitality. On the cool spring mornings, the fire in the breakfast room was much appreciated! We stayed in the Santa Fe Suite - bed was very comfortable, as was the couch in the other room. I loved the locally made shampoo, body wash, and conditioner in the rooms. My hair smelled so good!! Our room was quiet, comfortable. There was even an electric "wood stove" in the sitting room which was just enough to take the chill off the colder spring evening without turning on the heat, until we climbed into that lovely king bed with a warm, heavy comforter. Special requests were graciously accommodated - I was so happy that Shaan made sure I had a pitcher full of cold coffee every morning for my iced coffee fix :) Staying with Shaan and Colleen is like staying with friends - they make you feel like this is your home too. The map given to us on arrival of downtown Santa Fe was quite helpful, and be sure to visit their ice cream shop, Brain Freeze when you are walking the plaza. There is a hot tub on the large patio, which has outdoor seating. When we were there in April, it was a bit too chilly to utilize the patio at night (it snowed on our last day!) If you want to be close to the bustle of the Plaza, yet still have some peace and quiet after a hectic day of shopping, sightseeing, whatever, then Casa Cuma is perfect for you.
When there, take advantage of joining their friend Robbie for a day. I wish we had - (Santa Fe Cultural Treasures) - you get to see Native American craftspeople work, and then get a traditional meal. Other things to do are - Astronomy adventures - stargazing; Pecos Historical Park - 1.25 hike around an ancient pueblo - fascinating!; Los Alamos - be sure to take the Buffalo Tour of Los Alamos - 1 1/2 hours of the history of Los Alamos - $15/person, you won't be bored. Tour leaves at 1:30 from the Bradbury Science Museum; Taos Pueblo - check their website to be sure they are open; El Sanctuario de Chimayo, along with the Children's Chapel; The State House - absolutely the BEST place to go for art - free of charge, and about 3-4 floors of all New Mexico artists - from paintings, to sculpture, to weavings, to mixed media - amazing stuff. Stop by Del Charro Saloon on Alameda for a margarita and their nachos royale. It's a very friendly place, filled with locals and tourists alike, all more than willing to strike up a conversation. We've been to Santa Fe twice now, and it's our favorite spot :)
