Resting in the foothills of the coveted gated community of Bishop's Lodge Villas, at the end of a private cul-de-sac, this property is only minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza yet offers secluded outdoor space with forever views to the northwest. Approximately 2150 square feet.

This striking 3 bedroom 3 bathrooms stand-alone rental villa in Santa Fe enjoys perhaps the best views in the community. Captured through soaring windows are meandering arroyos, sweeping vistas, and dramatic mountains. These ceiling to floor windows occupy several rooms including the great room and the master bedroom, both of which are embellished with high viga ceilings and kiva fireplaces. An open floor plan with architectural woodwork throughout leads to spacious rooms; some with access to private exterior flagstone patios.

Other amenities include inviting community swimming pools, a security gate, and easy access to miles of hiking trails in the Santa Fe National Forest. Each of the 3 bedrooms is furnished with exceptional quality, rustic Santa Fe Style furniture. The master suite contains a king bed, cable TV, sitting area and opens onto a private patio perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. The bathroom adjacent to this master contains a jetted tub and a large walk-in shower. The second master bedroom also has a king-size bed, cable TV, sitting area and opens onto another private patio with exceptional southern and western views of the mountain ranges. The second master also comes with an en suite bathroom which includes a tub/shower.

The third bedroom also has an en suite bathroom with tub/shower, cable TV, leather queen sleeper-sofa, with a premium gel mattress plus egg crate for a perfect sleep every night along with a full desk including phone, printer, and monitor for guest's use. We even provide a ream of paper and ensure the printer has backup ink for our business travelers.   The queen sleeper sofa is a Comfort Sleeper by American Leather and  "is the most versatile and comfortable sleeper sofa available. The Only Sleeper Sofa You Can Sleep On — The Comfort Sleeper refined the sofa bed industry, elevating it to a new level of comfort. Find the best sofa bed for your living room or guest bedroom today. Experience No Bars. No Springs. Pure Comfort."

Guests have access to two swimming pools within the community. One is merely 30 steps from the front door and the second which also features a hot tub is a short 3-minute drive. The pools open Memorial Day Weekend through October annually. A pool waiver must be signed before the access code is released.  **Please note that due to COVID-19 state restrictions, the pools are not currently open**  This villa sits in the lower section of the community on a private, gated, quiet cul-de-sac with only 6 total units.

The villa community itself sits adjacent to the Santa Fe National Forest providing guests with an abundance of hiking, biking, and walking trails all close to Ski Santa Fe as well.   The pools are community pools and shared with the other villas. The closest pool is shared with 6 other villas and the upper pool and jacuzzi is a short drive away and shared with the Bishop's Lodge Villa community.

We are available by text, phone, or FaceTime 24/7. We are adhering to a non-contact check-in so will most likely not see you but are within a 5-minute drive if needed for any needs that arise during your stay.

Blue skies, rolling hills, and fragrant piñon pines characterize the landscape at The Bishop’s Lodge Villas, situated just a 10-minute drive from central Santa Fe. You might recognize the setting from the 2009 film Crazy Heart starring Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The crew spent 9 days filming on the 450-acre resort, capturing Hollywood-caliber sunsets and northwestern views of the Jemez Mountains. It looks great on screen but even better in person. The area provides a lot of ways to explore the area up close. In the Villa you will find a map of hiking trails accessible from your front door, you can book guided horseback-riding tours from the stables near the property through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and more.

About Santa Fe, New Mexico 

Santa Fe’s vibrant mosaic of cultural influences includes pieces of Native American, Latino, and western traditions. You can get an idea of the city’s varied background by visiting Santa Fe Plaza, which has served as the city center for more than 400 years. On a walkthrough, you’ll see old buildings made of adobe, the red brick-like material that defines much of Santa Fe’s architecture.

Centuries of colorful southwestern artwork are also on display in the New Mexico Museum of Art, which is located in the Plaza. Fiery chili is the signature flavor at many restaurants in Santa Fe, which earned a place on TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Food & Wine Destinations in the United States in 2011. It’s worth it to sign up for a walking food tour of the area, which has sprung up with popular eateries, each offering its own spin on zesty southwestern cuisine.  

For more than 300 days a year, Santa Fe soaks in the sunshine. Such consistently great weather, paired with New Mexico’s varied terrain, makes the region ideal for hiking and biking.

The Sangre de Cristo Mountains have peaks that stand over 13,000 feet high, and they’re traced with trails that wind past picturesque meadows filled with Indian paintbrushes, purple lupine, and undomesticated landscape painters. From late fall to early spring, up to 300 inches of snow falls on the slopes of the mountains, which offer miles of downhill skiing and snowboarding trails.

There are plenty of parking spots in front of the Villa. We share the parking lot with 6 other Villas but there are about 15 spaces available. It is approximately 3 miles outside the city limits – just enough to give that peaceful feeling of being up in the mountains with a view, but within minutes of the Plaza.

Recommended modes of transportation: Private vehicle, Uber or Lyft, Santa Fe Trails Transit.

Santa Fe Retreat

This home is amazing-- the views, the art, the amenities and the personal touches. Everything was well thought out, the home was well stocked and supplied. Santa Fe is a dream destination year-round, but this home makes the trip that much better.

Can't wait to return

We absolutely loved stay here. The views were amazing and the house is big, spacious and clean. Kelly was always quick to respond to all my questions and helped us find great hikes while in Santa Fe. We had a great time.

Wonderful home and hosts

The photos of this property are spot on. Inviting furnishings, comfortable beds, and gorgeous sunsets. We enjoyed the hummingbirds too. Kelly and Laura with A Vacation Different were excellent hosts. We were greeted with fresh flowers, local chocolate, and even some hand sanitizer. Top notch service!!

Absolutely Perfect!

This home is a real find! If you’re looking for the perfect Santa Fe getaway, look no further. The home sits upon a ridge top in the lovely Tesuque valley - serene and picturesque views of the mountains adorn the great room, while conveniently located minutes away from the downtown plaza. The home is immaculate and aesthetically decorated in a pleasing southwestern motif. The hosts (Kelly and Laura) aren’t just super hosts, they are Super Super Hostesses - Courteous, Prompt, Helpful, Incredibly Gracious, and just all around Great People! I would not hesitate to return to this impeccable and beautiful mountain retreat.
