Welcome To Heartseed’s Casitas

The “HEARTSEED” is a private 21 acres mountain retreat located in the northern
part of New Mexico, just minutes from the enchanting town of Santa Fe and its
world famous historic Plaza.

This little oasis in today’s hectic world is blessed with an abundance of great
sunrises and sunsets, stargazing, birdwatching or hiking. But most of all: our
guests can perfectly relax in the peaceful and quiet atmosphere of the high desert.
The HEARTSEED also offers an amazing scenery for artists who are looking for
new inspiration.

We feature four guest rooms in two separate “Casitas” nestled in the Pinion and Juniper dotted Ortiz Mountains. We can accommodate two people in each of our rooms. The HEARTSEED is conveniently located one hour from Albuquerque
Airport and only 25 minutes south of Santa Fe off the scenic historic Turquoise Trail
near the charming villages of Cerrillos and Madrid.

The HEARTSEED takes great pride in conserving the natural, absolutely undisturbed New Mexican nature. You will find hiking trails throughout the property as well as a meditation garden. In the spirit of a true retreat the landscape is rustic and the last 0.6 miles of our privat road that leads to the HEARTSEED are unpaved.

We offer just the right balance of peace and quiet and outdoor activities to restore your weary soul.
