Santa Fe River Retreat

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
Wake up and enjoy your coffee on the covered porch as the river flows by. It is our favorite time of the day to experience the peace and privacy of this beautiful river. We have totally updated the interior of our river retreat. There are two bedrooms with attached bathrooms making it a perfect getaway. The new granite counter tops and all new furniture throughout give the living areas a coordinated and calm feel. We added an appealing new entrance up to the living space. The new multi-level river deck is the perfect place to read, fish or just relax. We also have a private boat ramp for your private use.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

River Run
House was very clean and nice. Nice spot on river. Liked everything about it Was well stocked and prepared

5/5 Excellent

Cutest little property
My friends and I had a girls weekend for a wedding we were in. The check in process was super easy, the property and the home itself were beautiful. Connie was very helpful when a terrible storm caused a power outage, she responded to my text immediately and reassured us power would be on shortly, and it was on in no time. We met the neighbors and they were also very friendly. We will definitely be staying again.
