  • Advertised as the oldest house/building in Santa Fe, it is definitely worth it to venture inside. Neat historical photos and period pieces give one a true sense of early New Mexican architecture and l...  more »
  • It is so commercialized that it is not worth a visit unless you are walking by. Nothing really to see except to get a rough idea of what it might have looked like. No charge for admission, but plenty ...  more »
  • This was very interesting to see that this is the oldest house in the USA, you would think that would be on the east coast. This is fairly small. No charge to walk in, but it is also a gift shop.  more »

  • Not only the oldest house but great jewelry and Native goods that are high quality unlike many places on the Plaza. Knowledgeable staff!
  • Go for the gift shop, staff is very helpful and friendly. Wished the house had a little more history available. Fun for a quick pop in and break from gallery hopping.
  • It's my only two rooms to view but there is a great gift shop and I bought handmade dolls for my daughter made by a Navajo woman.
  • Anyone who knows New Mexico knows that this is far to new to be the oldest house in the US. However it's nice to see and has a cool feel to it.
  • Nice, and lot history.

Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.
