Casita de los Arroyos is part of a classic Pueblo style adobe compound 23 minutes south of Santa Fe on the Turquoise Trail. It is located on 13 acres of contemplative high desert. A spacious living area includes a sleeping alcove with a comfortable queen sized bed and a queen sized sleeping couch. The kitchen is newly built with a gas stove, refrigerator, and microwave. There is a patio with gas grill. We are an ecofriendly facility, recycling, composting and line drying the towels and sheets.

Guest access

The casita has its own gated patio with views of the arroyos and distant mountains but feel free to explore all of the 13.5 acres. The main house has patios on three sides that take advantage of the different views. Explore the property but it is wild land-be aware of your surroundings. There are snakes, including rattlesnakes, that usually will try to get away from people. The rocky outcroppings are beautiful but too unstable to climb. Several arroyos meet to form wetlands at the bottom. It is a designated national wetland area with large cottonwoods and green vegetation when all else is desert brown.

Interaction with guests

Lesley or I will be available for questions, help and sharing our delight in this high desert landscape.

Other things to note

There is a guest pass to four of the great museums in Santa Fe;
Museum of International Folk Art
New Mexico Museum of Art
New Mexico History Museum (Palace of the Governors)
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture.
In our experience if anyone in the group has a museum pass they will often let your whole group in for free.

I've stayed here twice now and will stay again. Great privacy and fabulous views. Having glass of wine on little veranda I watched a wild bobcat stalk by twenty yards away!

My parents and I spent the weekend here and really enjoyed our stay. Eleanor was very accommodating and a great host. The beds were very comfortable and the place was very clean. We enjoyed the location, it was very peaceful and we even got to see a bobcat outside the casita. Would stay here again.

A magical place. The casita is just perfect with everything one could need, from hand woven warm blankets and a supremely comfy bed to excellent coffee and cream to a private and luxurious patio with plenty of workspace or space to contemplate the magnificent view. Eleanor is a gracious, generous, and hospitable host. A real treasure to stay here!

Eleanor's place is a perfect peaceful counter to the activity of SantaFe. We felt at home as soon as we drove up to the casita. It is little old adobe revitalized with a modern kitchen and a marvelous private patio with a grand view. A place to enjoy the sunrise and sunset or watch the thunder storms come and go.

I was able to experience Eleanor's Casita in New Mexico the week following hurricane Irma in Florida (where I traveled from). The stark difference from the rural setting with a pallet of colors truly in the browns and oranges compared to my central Florida home was shocking but educational. Eleanor provided a pass for the museums in Santa Fe that I was able to take advantage of with the company of my son and his girlfriend. We truly enjoyed that day. Thank you Eleanor

Eleanor's casita is wonderful, tranquil, spacious and serene place nestled in the mountains close to Santa Fe. Eleanor has been a perfect and humorous host welcoming us with full heart. The house is set up with all that is needed for a perfect long or short holiday - kitchen, barbecue, terrace, comfy bed, bathroom. Sunsets and star skies are amazing. The place has a sound and a song that will sing to you.

My long-time colleague and friend Lesley Martin and I co-host this unique property in New Mexico. Both of us have lived and traveled extensively throughout the world. I started dreaming of adventure growing up in West Virginia and love nothing more than to explore the far corners of the world. Lesley grew up in Papua New Guinea, went to school in Australia and then moved to the United States where she became a pilot, taught sky diving and opened her own business. For over 35 years we have each had retail and wholesale businesses selling high quality ethnographic folk art. My husband and I recently purchased a neglected adobe compound built in the traditional hacienda style outside of Santa Fe, NM which we have since restored to its original beauty. The property sits on 13 acres and includes a main house, a casita (guest house), a studio and a warehouse. Lesley lives on the property year-round. We have had great fun bringing this property back and are anxious to share it with others.
