Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 12, 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

831 El Caminito Santa Fe, NM 87505 United States

Experience Santa Fe from the inside out! Enjoy the artists and the stories that make Santa Fe the ‘City Different’, the mystique and the beauty that has put Santa Fe on the short list of the most desirable destinations in the world! De la Peña house is in the cultural center of Santa Fe. Walk to Museums of NM, Canyon Road galleries, cafes, Saint Francis Basilica, Santa Fe Plaza or along the famed canal, the Acequia Madre.

Old Hacienda ambiance brings everyone to a feeling of New Mexico enchantment. Hi-tech amenities are juxtaposed with thick adobe walls, outdoor fireplaces and chile ristras to make a rich Santa Fe experience. We welcome retreats, reunions, couples, business travelers, families and kids and pets.

For the art savvy and/or collectors, the estate offers select opportunities to view and live with certain notable originals from the collections of O’Keeffe, Hockney, Warhol, Kahlo, etc.; bicycles are available to tour Santa Fe (we have most of our best things stuffed into 1 square mile!); and we love special requests: Chef’s, tour & adventure guides, and other concierge services are available directly by phone and via our app which is included in your reservation!

The Story:
De la Pena is the only remaining hacienda in Santa Fe. Set in the midst of the historic east side, this 6 bedroom, 9000 sq ft. estate has been the passageway for many of the most notable figures in the contemporary ascendence of the region. Ansel Adams has a series of photos which he took of the home that are still here! Also, Georgia O’Keefe, D.H. Lawrence, Willa Cather, Mary Austin, and others have stayed here as they discovered Santa Fe. The story begins nearly 200 years ago when the original structure was built, Sergeant de La Pena of the Mexican army became the first notable owner of a much smaller home in 1845. This era saw many traditional features built into the home. Notice the low archways: to keep marauding horseback riders from entering! By the time Frank Applegate acquired the property after the turn of the century, there was already a legendary status to the home which was accented by a feature in House and Garden magazine in 1929! The estate has also been featured in Architectural Digest since then.

The so-called ‘Father of Folk-Art’, Applegate was host to many of these young artists who were making history as they went! He also put his artistry to work in expanding and creating the home you see today. As we have recently had another turn-of-the-century, the estate endures with many of the authentic features intact! De La Pena is a grand adobe structure set amidst gardens and vast lawns, arching fruit trees surround, and a clay tennis court and a chicken coop beckon for outdoor fun!
