When you first arrive, Ristra Cottage is the first cottage you'll see on the property. Its pitched red roof is what you might notice initially, but its close location to the equestrian center is what makes it so special. All of the horses must pass by Ristra Cottage on their way to the upper stables and pastures, and on their way to the Main Stable. Your guests that especially love horses will have an amazing experience while residing at Ristra.
Ristra Cottage features one very large bedroom with a couch, desk and two king-sized beds. There are two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a cozy, modern living room with a fireplace. Ristra offers wonderful outdoor space as well. There is a flagstone patio with table and chairs that in the warmer months features an explosion of red and pink roses and indigenous flowers. It's also the perfect viewing spot for watching the horses and their trainers while you enjoy your morning coffee.
"This was an utterly fantastic place to stay...
... A beautiful, huge estate with dozens of beautiful horses. Wish I dedicated more time to just walking around the land but Santa Fe has so much to explore as well. A great place to spend with a group of friends!” Connie
