Oasis in the Desert is a lovely passive solar adobe casita with artistic touches throughout. It's a perfect spot to get away, yet a quick drive to all that Santa Fe offers. The casita is quaint, but airy due to all the windows. It's perfect for individuals or couples, and although there is an optional air mattress, it might be cramped for more than a couple people. It's located along the Turquoise Trail, a scenic byway connecting Albuquerque + Santa Fe, and only about 9 miles from the charming + eccentric artists' town of Madrid. The casita itself is well appointed with a comfy bed, nice shower + everything you'd need in the small kitchenette. Great views of the Northern New Mexican landscape + hiking right from the casita. Brenda is a welcoming host, and gave me a tour of everything she does at Mother's Farm Camp. In addition to hosting a children's day camp during the summer months, she has horses, a large organic garden and raises Golden Retrievers. The dogs made some occasional noise during the night, so light sleepers be advised. I always pack earplugs when I'm traveling, and was fine. I'd love to stay for a month-long artist retreat-- this would be the perfect place. She plans to add a Tipi to the property in the future, so I'll be on the lookout for that!

We loved staying at the Oasis in the Desert casita. Brenda was a fabulous host. My husband, 9 year old twins and I stayed for a week and would defiantly stay there again. The boys got to play with some of the puppies on the ranch and pet the horses. The best part for them was digging right outside the backdoor of the casita. It was wonderful to disconnect for the week.

What a beautiful cottage - lots of light and great amenities (the shower only has warm water for one shower though). All in all a magical spot, convenient to Santa Fe and the freeway. We loved our stay!!

The oasis in the desert is on an enchantingly beautiful piece of earth. Brenda was the best host. This place is not just a rented home, it’s an experience.
