Horrified. The owner maintains an outdoor sleeping shed for herself on the front of the property. That was the first clue that something was wrong.The upper house looks like an enlarged version of my first apartment in the poor student neighborhoods of Boston. She has a strange thing for moving the tenants stuff around (as noted by two other reviewers),... More

I decided to stay here for my time as a travel nurse. At first it seemed like it would work out great but I definitely did not. Before moving in we were told the house does not have AC but the temp stays at no more than 70. This was not true it was about 80 evey night. The place... More

I was working in Santa Fe during the end of October this year (2013) and after visiting a variety of similar places to stay I decided to chose Zen River. It was the best place for my travel funds and offered me privacy, comfort, cleanliness, great internet, and convenience to downtown, restaurants and local color. It made the trip fun.... More

I have enjoyed staying at Zen River in the beautiful Tesuque Valley on the North Edge of Santa Fe. It is far enough to enjoy the quiet mountain atmosphere but only 7 minutes to downtown Santa Fe. It's a beautiful home, comfortable, relaxing, with gorgeous views. I enjoyed hiking on Windsor Trail and the rocky mountain well water.

I stayed at Zen River for an extended time this fall. The Casa Estrella, the lower of the two units has an open floor plan with a great balcony on the front for stargazing or watching the sunset. It has a full kitchen and bath, with lots of space. The windows allow tons of natural light and breezes- very relaxing.... More

I didn't read the reviews of this place before I stayed there, and I'm glad I didn't. OK, it wasn't the Ritz, but it was clean enough for my VERY picky Mother-in-law. Yes, it's a bit rustic, but it served our needs very well. If it had been my honeymoon, I might not have been happy, but for a nine-day... More

Right on bishops lodge Road! When you enter these casitas you will find yourself in a clean, relaxing home; 7 peaceful minutes to the square and just a few more to Canyon Road Galleries. I am a Santa Fe artist at Waxlander Gallery. I have stayed at several establishments in Santa Fe and by far this was one of best.... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Zen River. The facilities are well designed and appointed by someone who obviously cares about harmony and balance with the environment and providing a comfortable and satisfying experience to the guests. I thought that the landlady managed the property with a nice touch - issues were dealt with in a timely and personable way.... More

The place was not clean, and the owner/manager first refused to clean it and then entered the unit multiple times without notice, pilfering and moving my belongings around. In the end of the stay she claimed that I moved furniture around and tried to deduct it through the deposit. Definitely serious psychological issues. Dont stay there unless you plan to... More

I had the pleasure of staying in Casa Estrella for two weeks and enjoyed it thoroughly. The location is perfect for me. 'Just outside of town but convenient, too. It is very peaceful and quiet. There was everything I needed and the landlady was very kind and a delight to know. I would recommend the property to anyone.
