  • You have to go through the junk shop to get into the house. There is a little history on exhibit, but it's minimal. The real objective is to get you in to buy stuff. On a positive note, the gentleman ...  more »
  • If you are already going to the San Miguel Mission next door to the Oldest House, go ahead and stop at the Oldest House. However, I wouldn't make a special trip. Much of the house has changed or been ...  more »
  • I stumbled across this quaint little house by accident. The attached gift shop probably takes longer to browse than the actual house, which consists of a couple of tiny rooms, so once you've taken you...  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.
