Sante Fe bed and breakfast

Hello, i know this is a long shot but I'm hopeful person! I am surprising my wife with a trip to Santa Fe. We visited there probably 20 years ago for an anniversary and we stayed at a BnB near the central plaza that had separate cottages; the one we were in was decorated in Victorian style.

I have no idea the name of the BnB or if its still in business. If this sounds familiar to someone, I am to open to all leads. thank you

You can go on www.Booking.com and type in Santa Fe and then use the map function and zoom in and try to locate it. I'm scratching my head over "Victorian style" though. Why not experience a pueblo, Santa Fe style instead on your second trip? There are so many lovely small and large hotels with really lovely pueblo style features, like the fire places, wooden beams, original artwork, etc.

Not sure when you are planning your trip but we are still in a recommended 14 day self quarantine for anyone traveling here. Except for tribal areas and the nw part of the state, we have been lightly hit and slowly reopening and want to stay on that track.

hillrico, 20 years is a LONG time, and I don't know as I've ever seen a rental in S.F. done up in Victorian; it's not Santa Fe style! As suggested, I'd look at what's available on booking.com, and an additional search of rental casitas/guest houses near the plaza on the tourism site.

We've rented deluxe (not standard) condo suites at Fort Marcy for our last few 1-week stays in the city and like them very much. If you don't take the advertised shuttle - which we've never checked out - you either have to be willing to make a puff up the hill from the plaza, on foot, at the end of the day, or pay to park the car in town. You can't beat the sunset up there from a short stroll to nearby Prince Park, overlooking the city!

In fall of 2018 we went to NM and had a great time. Our best lodging was in Santa Fe at the Inn of the Governors. It was right in the old town area and was just lovely. The room was spacious, well decorated and comfy. The breakfast buffet (No longer available I suppose) was deluxe and had table service for coffee, etc. One of the best parts was the attached cantina that served outstanding margaritas. The place was popular with the locals, which speaks well for it. It was convivial and we met lots of people who shared our tables. (We stopped in each night there). We walked to the cathedral, the plaza, the art museum, and there were lots of restaurants nearby. Not to be missed is the Museum of International Folk Art at Museum Hill. That is a five star museum!
If you have a week, I would rent a car and drive to Taos for the day. We took the high road there and the low road back, driving along the Rio Grande. Another day trip was to Los Alamos, returning by way of Bandolier Natl. Monument. There are also several pueblos to visit around Santa Fe.
We spent a few more days exploring other parts of New Mexico, but if you only visit Santa Fe, there is plenty to see and do. One disappointment was the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in town, but that's my opinion.
Hope you an make the trip.
