"Off the beaten path we discovered heaven right in the middle of the desert..."
Built on the ancient Anasazi site of the San Marcos Pueblo, this charming adobe hacienda is located only 25 minutes south of the Santa Fe plaza on the historic Turquoise Trail. The Crystal Mesa Farm is conveniently situated to ensure easy access to the abundant culture of downtown Santa Fe yet beckons with the lure of wide open spaces, stunning sunset vistas and endlessly glittering night skys. To gaze from our deck upon the subtle play of light and shadow across the flowing expanse of desert is to understand why so many artists and writers have been drawn to this area for centuries.
Right out the back door there are acres of arroyos and mesas to explore with golden hawks riding the winds above to escort you on your journey. Watch for cottontails and coyotes, look for indian pottery shards to surface after a summer rain, or stay on the Farm visiting with our own collection of furred and feathered residents - a menagerie of diminutive animals including miniature donkeys, pygmy goats, and pot-bellied pigs - guaranteed to charm adults and children alike.
In the words of our guests, The Crystal Mesa Farm is a place "to be reminded of the exquisite beauty of the world", a place "so beautiful and serene and Fun!"
