The rental includes a large bedroom, queen size bed, fully equipped kitchen and dining area, living room, bath room, spacious deck with lounge chairs, barbecue, dining table, and chairs. A lighted path leads from Casita to your private Sleeping Deck. It contains two full beds, pillows, chairs, small chest-of-drawers, table, telescope, and a 200-degree view of the canyon.

    The rental is located on the site of an early 1900s homestead and is one of three vacation rentals we have in the canyon, with Anasazi Wilderness Glamping Cabin, and Remote Wilderness Casita. We also have a Condo for rent in Historic Downtown Santa fe.
