Located about 10 miles from the city of Santa Fe, we're less than half an hour to the Pecos River and about an hour to the Jemez Mountains. The Albuquerque Airport is 70 miles, or about an hour's drive. There are shops about a mile away (grocery, restaurants, pharmacy, post office): we recommend that you have your own transportation You will have sunset views of the Jemez Mountains and south Santa Fe. Our home is a large adobe built around a center courtyard, very light with many windows and skylights. It is a very peaceful place, with wonderful places to relax...or work remotely. There is cable TV and internet access, a fairly large open kitchen, a private courtyard, and lots of books to read. ---- You have one dog to care for while we are gone. Chaco is a shelter dog (maybe corgi/cattle dog mix?) who shares the house and fenced courtyard with us. He is 14-years old, somewhat shy around strangers, and while he is slowing down, he is full of perk. He should not be left alone for longer than 5-6 hours. ---- Our home is about 7000 ft elevation, in the hills, surrounded by pinon and juniper trees and native plants, and lots of open sky, expansive views in the day, dark skies and stars at night! Our landscaping is xeric, and we have just a few outdoor plants that need watering.---- Summer in northern New Mexico is a good time for you to visit art/studio galleries, to enjoy our museums and parks and great restaurants, to hike and fish in our mountains, and to tour the city of Santa Fe. There will be a number of events celebrating the Fourth of July ---- Good neighbors are available to help or answer questions, and we'll be reachable while we're gone. ---- Please arrive a day or so before we leave so that we have time to show you around: if you need to arrive a bit early or want to leave a bit later (check with us on the time frame), we invite you to stay with us -- this may give you free days to go out and explore the area -- please let us know what works for you Also, we prefer non-smokers, and you will need your own car.
