    Period pictures on the wall show the interest the house has generated over the years. Worth stopping to see.  more »

    While it is interesting to see how a family may have lived there is not really enough to keep you engaged for very long. I found it interesting that there were two fireplaces in the space. But with pe...  more »

    Hit this for five minutes after you check out the San Miguel church right next door (like 10 feet). Really nothing to it - the gift shop is bigger than what is left of the house. Several period artifa...  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.

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.
