No pets, please. If you care about sustainability, you've come to the right place. We have a large solar array on the property that supplies 100% of our energy, and a roof water collection system for watering the gardens. We bring new vitality to the New Mexican desert environment by growing organic fruits and vegetables, making compost, and practicing integrated landscaping. There are greenhouses, fruit and nut trees and an outdoor harvest table under the grape arbor. And now a new natural swimming pool: it's small, stone-lined, and just big enough to cool off in view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains (10' diameter, 5' deep). More

We stayed three nights in the Sun Room. The location is convenient to most of Santa Fe and the outlying areas like Los Alamos and Bandelier but far enough from the busier parts of the city to be quiet and peaceful at night. Ask the...More

Wow, Patti, such a detailed review! You are so very clear about what you want and need, most impressive. I'll make only a few comments: I didn't aim for luxurious, not my style. The Sun Room was once my ex-husband's furniture-making shop. The occasional insect...More

Lisa's property is immaculate and inspiring. We only stayed 2 days and immediately planned to return. Between the thoughtfulness of the amenities (corkscrew! soft-closing screen door! coffee for the French press!), the greenness (in all senses of the word) and beauty of this chef d'oeuvre,...More

Terrific place, but we stayed in the Bunkhouse. Heads up, it does have a composting toilet which is different but fine. The toilet has three steps up to it which was not a problem for us but might be for others.
